A rich mixture of olive oil and jojoba oil conditions your lips. Natural shea and cocoa butter extracts soften and nourish your lips.

Swatches:

PROS:

  1. Glides smoothly across the lips, finish is semi matte. Very comfortable to wear.
  2. Color pay off is good, the swatches are all one swipe.
  3. All the shades are suitable for Indian skin tone.
  4. The crayon can also be used as a lip liner.
  5. Affordable.
  6. Staying power is a good 4-5 hours, after which it fades away leaving a stain. I had oily food, soda, coffee and still the shade was there on my lips. It lasted me a whole day at work without touch up.
  7. Color coded package, with name and shade number printed on the body.
  8. The formula nourishes and conditions the lips.

CONS:

  1. Transfers a little.IMG_20170508_123859224_HDR
  2. Not smudge proof.
  3. The shade name is different from shade color. For instance, 10 Blushing Pink is more like a warm peach shade.
  4. Shades like berry red, pink burst have some shimmer which I don’t prefer.

The pros outweigh the cons. I have used lipsticks which cost double the amount and still don’t do a good job. So this is definitely worth buying. I am really glad that Lakme launched these crayons, since off late the market didn’t have many good quality yet affordable lipsticks. Lakme has set the bar high, hope other brands also follow soon.

Favorites : Berry red, mauve magic, shocking pink, blushing pink.

Rating : 4.5/5

Lip Love

Lips are overlooked often when it comes to skin care routine. Most of us believe chap sticks / lip balms are good enough to take care of the lips. But these babies deserve a lot of love and care to be soft and luscious.

We have so many lipsticks in the market- matte, creme, liquid lipsticks, matte gloss, shiny gloss….. and it goes on. These formulas tend to dry out the lips and we need to provide extra nourishment for our lips.

A simple routine when followed regularly works wonders on your lips.

Exfoliate 

Lipstick+chapped lips = DON’T

Exfoliate your lips every alternate day,  in the morning after brushing. Use sugar to scrub away that dead skin for brand new super soft lips. 

Mix sugar granules + coconut oil for homemade scrub. There are plenty of flavors available online if you like the scented variants. I use a small toothbrush to scrub, you can use your normal toothbrush as well but the kid’s one is cute.  ♥ 

 

Protect them!

Your lips need protection from the harsh sun too. Use a good lip balm with SPF. Apply lip balm to your lips after exfoliating. 

I use the Body Shop Vitamin E lip Balm. It’s not tinted, has no scent and it comes with SPF 15.

 

Night Routine

Use a good make up remover or almond oil to remove your lipstick. Even though the lipstick fades away at the end of the day, it’s necessary to get rid of any leftover lipstick. 

Use the tooth brush to scrub the lips again(no scrub required). Dab some coconut oil on your lips and massage your lips for about a minute followed by which use a fork and poke your lips gently. This will help boost circulation and give you fuller and plump lips.
