The whole makeup world is going gaga with lip crayons, lip stains and chubby sticks. Even Oriflame came up with their own version. Oriflame Lip Impact Crayons are the latest lip crayons in the Indian market and the price seems to impress all the college going girls. When I saw these, for the price I ordered one immediately.
Price – Rs.329 (I got it in an introductory offer for Rs.260)
Packaging – Oriflame Lip Impact Crayon comes in a sharpenable pencil type packaging. The body of the lip crayon is in the same colour of the lip crayon itself, it will help you finding it easily if you have more than one.
Colour – Electric red is a beautiful true red shade, it has a high sheen and glossy finish. The colour will look pretty on all skin tones. In my medium skin tone, I can see it brightening up my face instantly.
Pigmentation – One swipe gives good red colour but with two swipes one can get full colour intensity. It is highly pigmented.
Texture – The texture is very creamy and glides on lips well. The lip crayon is quite moisturizing but the product doesn’t claim it will moisturize. The only problem with these lip crayons is, it is really creamy and I find the bullet melting and losing its shape. As these have to be sharpened, the creamy texture leads to lot of product wastage. This is a downside to the product.
Staying power – The staying power is pretty good. It stays for 4 hours. The sheen of the lip crayon starts fading after some 1 and half hours of wear time.
What I like about Oriflame Lip Impact Crayon in Electric Red
Pretty true red colour.
Texture is creamy and is moisturizing on lips.
Good staying time.
The colour will suit Indian skin tones.
Good range of colours available.
What I don’t like about Oriflame Lip Impact Crayon in Electric Red
No twist up mechanism – the product has to be sharpened.
Creamy texture leads to lot of product wastage when sharpening.
Final words: I liked the lip crayon for the price and will recommend to all, you can give it a try.
