Product Purchased by GlossyPolish
Hey, Girls! I am back again with yet another lipstick review. This time it is sponsored by GlossyPolish. Coincidentally my birthday is right around the corner and this makes the perfect birthday present for me ;) what more would a lipstick junkie ask for :) . This one is from the house of Lakme. This is their new launch. Yes! It is the Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon range. Today, I am reviewing the shade Berry Red.
Basic Info about Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon Berry Red
It is priced at 185 INR for 2.2g of the product.
It is available in Lakme counters in all leading malls and on online websites like Nykaa, Amazon, and Flipkart. However, I did not find it anywhere in Bangalore (Whitefield) and it was out of stock on Nykaa for quite a while and I got my hands on it quite late. It is selling like hot cakes.
My experience with Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon Berry Red
The packaging is very simple. It comes in a black packaging along with a black opaque cap. A red paper is wrapped around the body of the crayon with the shade name written at the end of the crayon, just where the cap stops when the crayon is closed making it clearly visible. It is just like a jumbo drawing crayon. The color of the paper wrapped is quite close to the actual color of the lip crayon. Also, it comes with a free dual sharpener.
Directions to use:
Start by prepping your lips using a moisturizer. Then start applying the lipstick from the middle of the lips and move towards the end. You can also apply it using a lip brush. Since this is a fairly creamy lipstick, a lip balm is not compulsory except for heavily chapped lips.
Shade and Texture:
The texture is comfortably creamy and does not dry the lips. These lipsticks are moderately satin finish just like their enrich satin lipsticks but a bit less satin than the enrich satin lipsticks. Two swipes on lips give the perfect color. The shade Berry Red is a nice Red with subtle berry undertones. It looks more like a tomato red with a hint of berry. This shade would suit the warm-toned beauties very well. This is a good choice for every red lip lover. Using a red or neutral lip liner will give best results making the color of the lipstick show up really well. Using a rosy pink/ cherry red lip liner gives it a slightly more pink undertone and show up as a slightly more berry color.
Overall Performance of Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon Berry Red
This lipstick range is a very affordable range and Lakme has amped up its makeup game with this product. It had been out of stock until last week on Nykaa. It has not even launched in majority parts of Bangalore. The overall performance of this lip crayon is really good, especially considering its pricing inclusive of a dual sharpener. This range has a lovely mix of pinks, corals, oranges, mauves, reds and browns. It has a color for everyone. It is a true winner with its packaging style, color payoff, shades, longevity and most importantly it’s pricing. With no extra makeup except a mascara and this lipstick paired with the right lip liner gives a nice college or work look. If you want to add a bit more drama to your look, line your upper and lower lash lines with a bold coat of black Kajal. If you have pigmented lips, you might have to layer it well to make your lips show up the right color along with pairing it with the right lip liner. As it is not a matte lipstick it does not dry your lips.
The staying power is quite good for this lipstick. It lasts for almost 3 hours without smudging. If you eat or drink something heavy, it will transfer. However, it leaves a beautiful stain on the lips. Using a lip balm after the lipstick leaves a stain makes it very elegant and helps keep the lips still colorful. However, it is important to use the lip liner not only to line your lips but also to fill it in to give the perfect base for the perfect pout and also make it last longer.
Would I recommend it?
Oh Ya! I will definitely recommend these lipsticks for their amazing texture and beautiful color pay off and it is totally worth the price.
As it is said that girls cannot stop with one lipstick, go ahead and try the Shocking Pink and Pink Burst shades from this range.
Stay happy stay beautiful <3
