This time, I am back with the product from my favorite company, Kryolan. I was always a little skeptical about sporting orange/terracotta shades on my lips. But, this pencil from Kryolan has become “the orange” I was looking for and now I sport it every now and then. Read the review to know more about this color!
Price: 300 INR for 17.5cm

My Experience with Kryolan Contour Pencil 902:
Packaging: Well, there is nothing fancy about the packaging. The product is a basic wooden pencil with a silver body and cap and a color-coded base. The pencil is very long and will last really long. It is sharpenable, which I think is more hygienic. Although there is product-wastage as the pencil is soft, I think it is okay for a cheap, affordable pencil like this.
Shade: This is a beautiful burnt orange/pumpkin shade with red undertone. When I apply the color, at first, it looks light as compared to my skin-tone but within some time, it complements the skin tone perfectly. I saw similar shades in Kylie Jenner, Kat Von D liquid lipstick ranges and eagerly wanted an affordable one. This one has fulfilled my wish. It looks beautiful on the eyes too. I have small eyes and this makes the eyes look bigger and brighter.
Texture and Staying Power: The texture of this pencil is a little too soft. If you apply pressure, it breaks. You have to be very careful and gentle about using it. It glides like a dream on the lips and does not make them dry or patchy at all. I have also noticed the fading of lip-wrinkles after applying this and thus, it provides a beautiful, fuller pout. I generally do not use any lip-pencil separately as with this one, it does the work itself. You may pair this as a lip-pencil with your favorite orange lipstick; it will definitely help the color to stay in place for longer period of time. Due to its creamy consistency, it never gets too matte and slight color transfer is noticed. However, it does not fade away with meals and stays in place for 7-8 hours. I have also used it as an eyeliner and it does an amazing job. Also, after removing the product, the lips do not feel dry at all. Instead, it makes the lips feel softer and smoother.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is insane. It covers all the lip pigmentation in one go. And although it transfers, the color, due to creamy texture, is never removed from the lips completely. I generally use an oil-based cleanser to remove the product completely.
