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.
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.
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.
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!
