My Experience with Kryolan Contour Pencil 903:
Packaging: The product is a basic wooden pencil with a silver body and cap and a color-coded base. The pencil is very long. It is sharpenable, which I think is more hygienic. Although there is product-wastage as the pencil is very soft. You may need to sharpen it twice while applying. I think it is okay for a cheap, affordable pencil like this. However, I prefer color-coded caps over color-coded bases as it makes things easier.
Shade: This is a nude pink shade and sadly, it washes me out badly. This will be a perfect nude shade for women with extremely fair skin. I generally use it with bolder shades to make them lighter. But, I mostly use it to brighten up the eyes. I have dark eyelids. So, on the no-makeup days, I use it on the lids to give them a bright, refreshed effect.
Texture and Staying Power: The texture of this pencil is a little too soft and it keeps breaking if I apply pressure. 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 slowly, your pout starts looking fuller. I mainly use this on the eyes and it never creases or gets clumped. The color is very creamy but it gets drier with time. It feels soft and moisturizing on the lips. It stays on for 7-8 hours without any noticeable fading.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is insane. It covers all the lip pigmentation in one go. I have highly pigmented upper lip. When I apply this, both the lips look uniform after a single coating of color. It also covers the darkness on the upper eyelids with minimum product usage. I generally use an oil-based cleanser to remove the product completely from eyes and lips.
Overall, I am in love with this product. It is a vibrant color that is perfect for the festive season and I am enjoying using this one.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Kryolan Contour Pencil 903?
I won’t, as it looks very bad on my lips. If you want this to brighten up the eyes or to line your lips and if you have fair skin tone, you may get this one.
