I love wine shades on my lips and the colour is perfect for the winters. I love my Sugar Cosmetics Poison Ivy Crayon for this purpose. But, as it is getting finished, I was looking for a close dupe. This shade looked like one and so I picked it up. Know more about this beautiful colour here!

My Experience with Kryolan Contour Pencil 910:
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. It is sharpenable, which I think is more hygienic. Although there is product-wastage as the pencil is very soft. You may need to sharp it twice while applying. I think it is okay for a cheap, affordable pencil like this.
Shade: This is a beautiful wine red shade with blue undertone. It is the exact dupe for Sugar Cosmetics Poison Ivy. It is a gorgeous shade for the Falls or Winters. I think this is a very matured red shade and anyone can sport this color. As it is too bold, I personally prefer minimal eye makeup with this one.
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 slowly your pout starts looking fuller. I generally do not use any lip pencil separately as with this one, it does the work itself. The color is very creamy matte initially that may get smudged. But, with time it gets drier. However, it always feels soft and moisturizing on the lips. It stays on for 7-8 hours without any noticeable fading. It does transfer a bit on coffee cups and the color may fade a little from the mid lips. However, it still looks just like before. Here, I have shared a picture that I took 7 hours after applying it. I had coffee and a creamy pasta wearing this. You can definitely see how intact it looks even after that.
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. I generally use an oil-based cleanser to remove the product completely.
Overall, I am in love with this. I have found the color I was looking for and I am extremely satisfied.
