Today’s review is about Catrice 170 Plumplona Olé Longlasting Lip Pencil. A lip liner makes the lips look fuller and more defined. It also prevents the lipstick from bleeding and feathering. It’s like sealing the lipstick to stay put within the lips. I cannot live without one.
The ideal preparation for fashion lips: the Longlasting Lip Pencil sets colour limits and prevents lipstick as well as gloss from streaking. Its waterproof texture guarantees ultra longlasting contours. And the creamy tip softly glides over your lips to ensure an accurate application.

My Experience with Catrice 170 Plumplona Olé Longlasting Lip Pencil:
Now coming to 170 Plumplona Olé, it’s a bright plum coloured lip pencil which I can’t recommend enough. I am totally smitten by the shade. The color is little dark and suits most of the dark or autumn colored lipsticks. The color definitely doesn’t stand out when applied with the right shades; it gets blended easily with the lipstick.
The lip liner helps me prevent the lipstick from bleeding. Catrice lipsticks tend to bleed and I
always use their lipsticks and lip liners in combination. This lip pencil comes in a simple basic packaging. It’s a pencil with a cap. It’s not a self-sharpening kind of lip pencil. I would have preferred a self-sharpening one since the tip tends to break easily when I sharpen. This causes a lot of wastage of the product.
The color is so great that it complements all Indian skin tones. I can use it with most of my lipsticks, especially dark and plumy ones. The texture is creamy and glides smoothly on the lips. It’s not required to tug the pencil hard. I would describe the formula as a perfect balance between dry and moist. The product is waterproof and lasts quite long on lips without major fading or creating patches. It does last my eating and drinking sessions. I never require touch-ups.
The color is so attractive that I do use it to fill my complete lips. When I do so, my lips feel and look dry. So I normally apply a layer of lip balm and then top it up with a lip pencil. When you use it only to line the lips, it so happens that the lipstick gets little patchy but the liner stays intact. So it’s a good idea to blend in well so as to not leave a line on the outer edges of the lips.
Great quality with low price. Catrice is always attracting customers with accessories like sharpener or brushes and so on. Unfortunately, this one doesn’t have any. A self-sharpening packaging would have been perfect.
