Oriflame Lip Impact Crayon in Intense Cherry Review, Swatches and LOTD

Hello girls, here is a lipstick review after a looooong gap. Today I’ll be reviewing the lip impact crayon from Oriflame. This is my first lip crayon and since it was in offer price of Rs. 199 few months back, I got one for myself in the shade ” Intense Cherry”and after using it for a while now, here is my view on the product. Read on to know whether you should buy this or skip!

Price:Rs. 329 for 3.9g, I got it at Rs. 199 (offer price)

Available Shades: 1. Electric Red
2. Deep Berry
3. Intense Cherry
4. Striking Rose
5. Pink Impact
6. Vibrant Almond

Shelf Life: 3 years from the date of manufacture

Method Of Use:  Starting from the middle of the lips, apply through the arch of the lips till the corners, both above and below.

What The Product Claims: Here is a lip crayon that will offer long-lasting color to your lips without drying and chapping lips. The smooth texture glides on to lips giving truly intense color in only one stroke. Super comfortable, silky feel and moisturising formula to help prevent lips from drying. High coverage, medium shine. Long wear without color bleed. One smooth swipe and lips are saturated with intense color and plush moisturizing lip goodness.

My Take On The Product: The product comes in a cherry red pencil packaging with a cap, the shade of the lip crayon is exactly like the color of the packaging.

???????????????????????????????

The packaging is sturdy enough. The shade “Intense Cherry” is a very bright cherry red color and is perfect for wedding season and brightens up your face instantly.

???????????????????????????????

This shade will look good on all Indian skin tones. The texture of the lip crayon is super creamy and is highly pigmented. It glides on my lips like butter and you do not need to use any lip balm underneath.

???????????????????????????????

Top- 2 swipes Bottom- 1 swipe

The crayon gives a glossy finish that stays up to 3-4 hours and fades leaving behind a nice tint. It keeps my lips moisturized and makes it look fuller. Coming to the negative part, the lip crayon is non retractable, hence a lot of product gets wasted while trying to sharpen it.

In Daylight

Since it is super creamy, it tends to bleed often, it also form streaks if over applied (see the lip swatch with flash, I have used two swipes of the lip crayon and the application is almost streaky).Lastly,it transfers to anything and everything your lips come in contact with so you need to be cautious.

Pros: 1. Lovely shade

2. Crazily pigmented

Cons: Non-retractable, a lot of the product get wasted.

Rating: 3/5

Recommendation: I am not really impressed with this lip crayon from Oriflame mainly because a lot of product gets wasted. I won’t purchase this again!

Colorbar Velvet Matte Lipstick in Oh My Magenta Review, Swatches & LOTD

Hello girls….how’s life? I am feeling home sick for a while now. I will pack my bags and go home in few days to spend sometime with my family. The post, I am writing today was in my draft for over a month. I was too lazy to write a new post so thought of completing this one today. Almost all of us are well known to Colorbar Velvet Matte lippies and you guessed it right, I am reviewing one of the most preferred shade of the range- Oh My Magenta. I think, I am the last person to review it yet I wont mind praising this “oh so beautiful color” which is aptly name “Oh My Magenta!” Let’s see a quick review below:

Price: INR 275 for 4.2g

Ingredients: Not mentioned

What The Product Claims: For a rich lip color with a creamy shine, the Velvet Matte Lipstick, available in 45 stunning shades infuse the lips with vibrancy. Its unique 2-in-1 formulation gives the lips a creamy, yet matte finish. A one of a kind product in India, it has super softening agents that give the lips a soft and supple appearance while keep them nourished with Vitamin E. Staying on up to 5 hours on application, the Velvet Matte Lipstick can be further accentuated with lip gloss and lip liner.

My take on the product: As the name suggests, Colorbar Oh My Magenta is a lovely magenta shade with neutral undertones.

This shade will flatter many skin tones. The lipstick comes in a round packaging with a see through bottom which I think is quite helpful to locate the shade you want. The cap is made up of transparent plastic which fits snugly.

Coming to the texture, these lipsticks have matte finish but does not makes lips dry. The lipstick glides smoothly on lips. It is safe to use a lip balm underneath to avoid any kind of discomfort.

Left- Single swipe, Right- 3 swipes

The pigmentation is awesome and the color stays on lips for almost 4-5 hours. It fades leaving behind a reddish- pink tint. The lipstick has a strong fragrance which I do not like. I am quite impressed with the texture and pigmentation of these lipsticks.

I have another lovely shade from this range which I’ll be reviewing sometime in future.

Pros: 1. Reasonably priced
2. Highly pigmented
3. Does not dry out lips
4. Stays for 4-5 hours.

Cons: 1. Fragrance might be a problem
2. People who do not like long wear lipsticks may not find it useful.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I Recommend This? : Yes, this is one of the best budget lipsticks known to me. So go on girls……
