Winter vacations are almost here 🙂 but I’ll be all alone 🙁 since most of my friends are leaving for India to spend their vacation with family.
But before they all could leave me alone in my solitude they had to accomplish a major shopping haul for their friends and family back at home. Shopping experience was all the more hilarious with guys who had to buy all female stuff like clothes, shoes and cosmetics for their sisters and girl friends, but were clueless regarding where to buy and what to buy.
For cosmetics shopping I mostly took them to Ulta and Target and while at Ulta I came across these Matte Lip Crayons in pretty shades of pink and brown which usually go well with my skin and since it’s holiday time there were lot of tempting deals so I decided to gave a try to two of them in shade Raspberry Rose and Hazy Pink. Below I have reviewed the Raspberry Rose shade.

My Take on ULTA Matte Lip Crayon In Shade Raspberry Rose:
I prefer lip crayons and stains as they cover up my pigmentation really well. I have tried lip stains by Revlon and Loreal before and they were very satisfactory. This lip crayon, however, is not in the same league. Usually lip stains have very high staying power but this one fades off after few hours.
Color intensity is not so high but one can layer it up to achieve desired shade. It’s not so moisturizing but one can use it on top of a lip balm and apply a top coat of gloss to get a nice glossy finish.
In short, one can play around with matte lip stains to get multiple looks. Also, this shade looks really nice on tan or brown Indian skin tone. A coat or two will give a subtle, decent look which is ideal for office and further layering will give more dramatic look which is perfect for a night out especially in winter.
Pros of ULTA Matte Lip Crayon In Shade Raspberry Rose:
- Nice twist up packaging
- Ideal shade for warm skin tones
- Pocket friendly
- Easily available online or in Ulta stores
- Worth the money paid
Cons of ULTA Matte Lip Crayon In Shade Raspberry Rose:
- Low staying power
- Requires layering to achieve desired color intensity
Would I Repurchase ULTA Matte Lip Crayon In Shade Raspberry Rose?
Nope, I would just use up this product and try other brands but I would recommend it to others since it’s a total steal for $4!!!
