Skin tone: Medium olive
Lakme India recently launched their super cute Enrich Lip Crayons with some beautiful shades. I picked up eight shades from this range, and today I’m going to share my views about the shade Berry Red. Let’s get into the review.
Price: Rs. 185/- for 2.2g
Embrace the all new formulated lip colour crayon by Lakmé and use your lips like a canvas to create a vibrant look.
Get smooth and matte finish lips with this lip colour crayon by Lakmé that is infused with mineral powders. It has a soft texture and is available in 10 gorgeous shades that suit all Indian skin tones. It also has a rich blend of olive and jojoba oil that simultaneously conditions your lips. For your convenience, the all new Lakmé Enrich Lip Crayon comes with a sharpener.
How to Use:
Step 1: Open the cap and start applying the product from the centre of your upper lip.
Step 2: Worked from the centre towards the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth.
Step 3: Glide the product across the entire bottom lip.
Step 4: This step is optional but you could use a tissue to blot out the extra product.
My Experience with Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon 01 Berry Red:
Packaging: Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon looks exactly like a beautiful, pretty crayon with a color-coded paper on the body. It also has a nice black cap, which is not secure enough to carry. It does not feel tight and can easily open on its own. But, these crayons are priced at only Rs. 185, so everything is fine at this super cheap rate.
Each crayon comes with a dual sharpener, which works smoothly and, I can use the smaller one for other products as well. Though this pencil needs to be sharpened, there is less wastage during the process. I feel it is a great buy for this price.
Shade and Pigmentation: Like the name, ‘Berry Red’ is a beautiful deep berry red shade with a warm undertone. I love wearing such reds on my medium skin tone, and such red shades would flatter all skin tones as well. It looks so beautiful on lips and is certainly the perfect red lipstick for a party look. Though this range of lipsticks has a medium pigmentation, this particular shade is really pigmented, and it requires two strokes to get that perfect color payoff on the lips. This shade doesn’t contain any shimmers. It hides lip pigmentation as well.
Texture and Quality: This lip crayon has a soft, smooth texture that glides easily on lips but, it feels slightly waxy as well. Yet it doesn’t feel uncomfortable on the lips. It feels light and never looks patchy. I can easily layer it up and it never feels cakey or heavy. This crayon has a beautiful non-drying creamy matte finish, which I really like. It settles into a smooth even texture which keeps the lips soft for long. The formula provides a decent amount hydration to lips and never makes lips dry. Women with dry lips can also use this lipstick as it never highlights dry patches.
Since this is not a completely matte range, it does transfer, but the color still stays on the lips nicely and doesn’t create any mess around the lips. It is quite easy to draw a perfect lip line with this crayon due to its pointed tip. Also, it doesn’t have any noticeable smell to it.
Staying Power: I wasn’t expecting it to be a long-lasting lipstick but, it lasts for around 5-6 hours nicely. I think this particular shade lasts really good without creating any mess. It can survive normal lunch as well. But, it starts to fade evenly after a heavy lunch. However, it doesn’t settle into fine lines nor it creases. Hence, the color is easy to remove.
Overall, I really like this range; especially this is one of my favorite shades. It looks so beautiful and bright on me. These crayons might not be great but are good enough for the price you pay.
