Can We ever have enough lipsticks?? NOOOOOOOOO!!
Today I am going to take you through few fabulous affordable lip crayons launched recently by Lakme.
Lakme is a brand we all know very well about. Lakme was my go to makeup brand when I got married in 2010. The then launched bridal collection filled my entire makeup vanity. every now and then when Lakme launches new products I always get excited to try them.
What Lakme claims
The Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is a newly formulated lip color crayon, for a soft texture and smooth matte finish. Get soft and colorful lips every day, in 10 different shades of your choice. The Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons contain a high level of mineral powders, giving your lips a soft matte finish. It also contains a rich mixture of olive oil and jojoba oil which condition your lips. Sketch your lips, and make them your canvas with the new Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons.
The packaging of the lip crayons is very simple and the color coded. They come in Pencil form with black cap covering the product. If you remove the cap and hide the name of the product, you can easily mistake them for real crayon colors. The pencil tip kinda pointer needs to be sharpened to get more product out. Each lip crayon come with a dual sharpener which is great since you need not buy additional sharpener.
These lip crayons are highly affordable. You get 2.2 gms of product for just INR 185 /-
Formula and Texture
The Lip crayons are very soft and have a smooth velvety finish. The formula is non-drying and it does not suck the moisture from your lips as many of the matte lipsticks.
The formula is very light but highly pigmented for a few shades. You would get good color payoff in 1 swipe and you can layer it up to get the perfect finish.
These crayons have semi matte finish and are super comfortable to wear.
The only minus I saw was the longevity. It is not transfer proof or smudge proof. The color doesnt stay for a very long time. However, it left left the lips evenly without leaving any patchiness.
I ordered 5 shades from the range out of the total of 10 shades in the range.
Shocking Pink- This is a dark pink shade. It will suit fair to medium skin tones.
Baby Pink- This is a beautiful light pink shade that may wash out on darker skin tones. However, it will look very nice everyday sort color on fairer skin tones. This shade was probably the least pigmented of all the shades I had got.
Berry Red- This is a beautiful red shade and gives an instant bright look to your face.
Candid Coral- This one is not at all a coral shade. It is a neon orange shade best suited for fair to medium skin tones.
Cinnamon Brown- This is a beautiful everyday neutral shade. It sit so perfectly on my lips and matched my lip color so well. It almost felt like I was not wearing any lipstick at all. This one is good for all skin tones.

Overall I would say these are absolutely amazing lip colors with such an affordable price. With beautiful shades for the summers you can definitely give them a try.
I would give them a 4 on 5. It lost a point due to the longevity factor. Nevertheless, it is a fabulous lipstick to try.
