My Experience with Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon Red Stop
Packaging – The lipstick is in the form of a crayon and is thicker than a normal pencil and is crayon sized.
The cap comes off really easily so you don’t want to put this in your purse only to discover that it has smeared your bag.
However, this is something that can be easily avoided. Some double sided tape to line the inside of the cap and then put in on so that the cap becomes tighter 🙂
Texture and consistency
The product is nicely pigmented and a couple of swipes gives full coverage and covers all the flaws!
Ever had one of those cocoa butter body lotions or lip balms??? Well that’s what this lip crayon smells like! Heavenly!!!
So I have been using this crayon a lot ever since I bought it from a local mall’s Lakme counter.
This lip crayon is really easy to use and it’s easy to line your lips with this crayon too as it provides a nice sharp tip which I use to line my lips and then fill in it.
One swipe covers everything up nicely but I would recommend a couple of swipes for full coverage.
The lipstick stayed on my lips for a good 4- 5 hours after which you might want to touch up a bit in the center especially if you have had a little snack break in between.
The lipstick is loaded with moisturizing agents like jojoba oil and olive which provides ample moisturizing. The lipstick glides on like a dream and is easy to work with. Spread it all around your lips here and there working with the lip crayon in painting actions.
This lipstick doesn’t even dry out my lips and yet gives a semi-matte look too (perfect)
Give it another hour and the semi-matte feels more like matte.
It does not settle in between lines much but if you have chapped lips then it might show through this.
The color red stop has more of red in it but it has orange undertones to it too which gives it more of a red-orange look instead of just red!
The free sharpener has me really impressed! Nowadays even a lip balm costs us more than this pretty lip color and giving a sharpener off shows that Lakme has put careful thought behind making this product.
Overall Review of Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon
- Glides on smoothly
- Amply pigmented
- Doesn’t smudge
- Stays on for 4-5 hours
- Doesn’t dry out the lips
- Doesn’t shine and gives a nice matte effect
- Easy to line the lips
- None really except that the cap comes off sometimes
- ( nothing that a bit of tape can’t solve)
I would definitely recommend this product to everyone including all those newbie teenagers who have just stepped into the makeup world. The price is something that all school or college girls can afford and you can even have every color for variety!
