Lakme has done it again, launched a range of lip colors and that too on affordable price. The enrich satin range is known for its affordable lipsticks and I am assuming Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon to be an extension of that range. I saw these online and couldn’t believe my eyes since the price tag was unbelievable – 185 INR ! And these come with a dual sharpener as well. I picked 8 shades and been testing out for some time now.
The Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is a newly formulated lip color crayon, for a soft texture and smooth matte finish. Get soft and colorful lips every day, in 10 different shades of your choice. The Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons contain a high level of mineral powders, giving your lips a soft matte finish. It also contains a rich mixture of olive oil and jojoba oil which condition your lips.
Packaging is quite simple, this crayons come in a wooden packaging with a sharpener (which is for limited time only). The crayons have different colored labels, indicating the color inside. The packaging feels cheap but thats what you get in 185 INR.
Shades – The range has mostly reds, corals & pinks, very typical of lakme. There is only one brown – cinnamon brown that should look good on medium to deeper complexions as well, thank god they haven’t kept a lighter shade of brown because I don’t like washed out nudes.
There is a mauve but it looks more like purple than mauve which is a shame because I love mauve colors.
Texture & Formula – Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon has smooth texture, it glides on smoothly and without tugging or pulling. The formula isn’t entirely matte but more on the creamy matte side. These aren’t glossy and feel really comfortable on the lips. The formula has shea butter and I can definitely feel the moisturising properties while having these on. I enjoy the formula honestly.
Pigmentation – It varies across the board, few shades are quite nice and pigmented and few are sheer e.g. cinnamon brown is quite sheer and needs multiple swipes.
Staying Power – On me these stay for good 3-5 hours, depending on how much I eat during that time.
Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon is priced at Rs 185 , available at amazon & nykaa

I find these lip crayons really good for people on budget and college going girls who would rather spend 600 Rs on 3 crayons then one lipstick. There are some nice vibrant shades in there and loads of corals & reds. You should give Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon a try.
