Crayons have ruled the beauty/makeup segment all year long be it the eyes or lips! I have tried to buy every single one from all the brands though I’ve yet to try any eye crayons! Today I have the most affordable lip crayon available in the Indian market- L’oreal Glam Shine Lip Crayon in the shade Pomegranate Punch which is the darkest shade in this range.
L’Oreal Paris introduces its first glossy crayon format for that looks after your lips. Balm and Gloss finally combined in an playful crayon format for mirror free application. Lips feel moisturised, look shiny with a sheer fresh looking color pay off.
Can be bought online from Nykaa & Flipkart
The L’Oreal Glam Shine Balm Lip Crayons come in a color coded,retractable crayon type packaging with a silver cap. Due to the twist up mechanism you do not have to sharpen the crayon and it does not lead to product wastage. It has the shade name mentioned on the cap and the color coded packaging also eases identification. The cap shuts tightly and will not come off in your bag hence it is travel friendly.
Pomegranate Punch is a bright berry pink shade with a strong red undertone. It’s a great color for those who want to try reds but are too scared to try a full blown red. It contains very fine pink shimmer which is very subtle and isn’t really visible on the lips. I hate hate HATE lip products with shimmer so trust me when I say the shimmer is barely noticeable. L’Oeal Pomegranate Punch will flatter all complexions be it light,medium or dusky!
L’Oreal Glam Shine Balm Gloss has a very creamy and hydrating texture. It is exactly what the name suggests- A Balm with a very glossy finish! It has one of the best textures and despite being buttery it does not melt or break in the summers. Beauties with dry lips will ♥ it to the core. It does settle into a semi matte finish after a couple of hours but does not feel uncomfortable.
Pomegranate Punch is well pigmented and gives a semi opaque finish in 2-3 swipes. It does not give full coverage but it will adequately cover pigmentation of lips so those with pigmented lips will quite like it! This is definitely the most pigmented and darkest shade in the L’Oreal Glam Shine Balm Lip Crayon Range.
The lip crayon has a decent staying power which stays put for around 4 hours if I don’t eat or drink anything. Obviously I can’t starve myself so that reduces the wear time a bit. I’ve also noticed it tends to fade from the center of my lips whenever I drink water which is a big and only con for me. It does require touch ups after a meal or snacks.
