Zoeva Lip Crayon Second Chance Lipstick Pencil Review

Product Purchased by IMBB

Hello folks 🙂

After I read all those amazing reviews on Zoeva eye pencils and brushes, I was left with an urge to venture into this brand. For those who are new to the brand, a quick intro about Zoeva- it is a Greman-based cosmetic company founded in 2008. They also have amazing, luxurious brushes apart from makeup. I used the very generous sponsored scheme of IMBB as an opportunity to experience it. I got a lip crayon from Zoeva in the shade “Second Chance.” This range of lip crayons has 5 shades to offer and I selected this shade. It is quite hard to choose lipsticks online and judgment needs to be done almost blindly. The color may or may not turn up as expected. Let us see how this one fared.

Product Description:
The Zoeva Lip Crayon is a chunky lipstick pencil with a super light and creamy formula. It is developed in five natural yet glamorous shades that give your lips sharp color and a fine shiny finish. This product is also very smooth, as it melts naturally like butter on your lips for a visibly soft and plump effect.

My Experience with Zoeva Lip Crayon Second Chance Lipstick Pencil:

Packaging:  This lip crayon comes in a black colored carton on which the details like name, ingredients list are mentioned. The inner layer of the carton is colored with the shade of the lip crayon which looks very pretty. The body of the lip crayon is jet black in color, with the color-coded band at the bottom. The cap though, is not sturdy enough and may fall off when kept in handbags; so one needs to take note of that. The only con is that the lip pencil needs to be sharpened. This leads to product wastage, and since the pencil is very soft, it needs to be sharpened with utmost care so as to not to end up breaking up the product.

Shade:  “Second Chance” as per the website is supposed to be coral beige. I was lured into buying this only after I checked out the website, but in reality, it turned out to be a pale n*de with very slight coral hints. The coral hints do not complement warm tones and it tends to wash me out. This lip crayon is free from shimmer.

Texture:  I can go on and on about how amazing the texture of this lip pencil is. It is smoother than butter I suppose. It is the creamiest of all the lipsticks I own. It just glides without having to apply even the slightest effort. It is absolutely creamy and soft; feels very light on lips. It gives a semi-matte finish and can be blotted to get a completely matte look.

Pigmentation:  It is insanely pigmented for a n*de! In one swipe, it covers most of the pigmentation, and there’s no need to layer it on. This shade does not flatter my fair, warm skin tone and it tends to wash me out when worn alone. I wear a bright lip liner or blot a bright lipstick and wear it on top; it is a different story altogether. It comes out as a whole new shade itself.

Smell and Taste:  As per the website, it is completely free from any taste or smell!

Staying Power:  Lasts for around 2 hours maximum on my lips, when worn alone and a little more than that when worn on top of a lip liner. It does transfer due to its creamy texture, but lesser than I expected.  So, I am satisfied with that aspect. This crayon melts away like butter on lips, but does not bleed or crease. It did moisturize my lips well when I wore it alone. Thanks to the formulation!

Lastly, I am profusely happy over this lip pencil and I cannot thank IMBB enough!

IMBB Rating:

4/5 (would have been a 5/5 if the shade had flattered me).

Would I Recommend Zoeva Lip Crayon Second Chance Lipstick Pencil?

This range of lip pencils are a treat! But I wouldn’t recommend this shade, as I believe this will not suit Indian skin tones. There are other shades that can be picked after inspecting the shades closely 😛 as mine turned out different than it seemed to be. On the whole, this is a pretty good buy.
