ORIFLAME LIP IMPACT CRAYON- STRIKING ROSE- SWATCHES & REVIEW

ame Says: - As a busy working woman you don't have much time to spend on your lips. So here is a lip crayon that will offer long lasting wear without drying your lips. The smooth texture glides on to lips giving truly intense color in only one stroke. Super comfortable, silky feel and moisturising formula to help prevent lips from drying. High coverage, medium shine. Long wear without color bleed. One smooth swipe and lips are saturated with intense color and plush moisturising lip goodness.




STRIKING ROSE (MIDDLE)





















Ingredients: - Polyisobutene, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, Cera Microcristallina, Olus Oil, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Mica, Myristyl Lactate, Myristyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Candelilla Cera, Parfum, Propylparaben, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate



Available in 6 Intense Shade:

1. Electric Red
2. Deep Berry
3. Intense Cherry
4. Striking Rose
5. Pink Impact
6. Vibrant Almond

























My Opinion: - Lip crayons do look cute and most of us have gone crazy and grabbed as many as possible from all brands that launched these crayons. When I saw similar crayon in the Oriflame catalog I grabbed 3 of these- Vibrant Almond, Pink Impact & Striking Rose. Oriflame chose to call them Lip Impact Crayons and today I am going to put forward my views on the shade Striking Rose which is a pretty but vibrant pink with blue undertones, bright and vivid just right for the winters. The packaging is similar to all lip crayons but this one does not have the twist up/down mechanism and it needs to be sharpened. The crayon has a plastic body and its color corresponds to the shade of lipstick inside it. The lid shuts tight and is of deep blue-black color. This makes it easy to carry around in the purse.



STRIKING ROSE (MIDDLE)






















                       The fragrance is that of chameli ka tail (Jasmine Oil) but thankfully it fades off after 15-20 mins of application. The texture of this lip crayon is extremely soft & buttery and the consistency is that of a thick liquid lipstick. It is very pigmented and a single coat is enough for full coverage. This lip crayon in Striking Rose is glossy so I prefer not to use a gloss on top of this lip color. This particular shade stays on for a long time but does not survive a full meal. It fades off after 3-4 hours and leaves behind a beautiful pink stain. This lip crayon is easy to apply and travel friendly. You wouldn't need to add gloss on top of this shade as it is glossy all by itself. Ok this particular shade is not an everyday wear shade of lip color as it is a bold pink and it is not wearable for office/college, atleast for me.




SWATCH- ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING





















                         I could use this lip crayon only thrice before the tip went blunt. Since its too soft, sharpening it is a pain and also a lot of product goes waste. My favorite Lakme Sharpener doesn't help as the crayon is a little thinner for the jumbo hole and a little thicker than the normal hole. So I had to get myself a brand new Oriflame Sharpener but I haven't given a trail. This lip crayon moisturises my lips and doesn't give that dehydrated-stretchy feel to my lips. You may or may not wear a lip balm underneath as this lip crayon does not accentuate the flakiness and deep lines of the lips if you have any. As I said earlier, the tip of this lip crayon is very soft you need to be careful while applying, a little too much pressure will break the tip. Once I left the lip crayon in Vibrant Almond in the car for 2 day, and later when I checked it... eewww it melted and the shape of the tip was disfigured. Therefore I don't think it would be a good idea to carry it in your bag.
























Pros: 

* Affordable (grab them during discounts)

* Very soft & buttery, glides on lips with ease

* Highly pigmented

* Lasts for 4-5 hours and leaves behind a beautiful stain

* Easy to carry around & great for on-the-go touch-ups

* Moisturising and hydrating but does not bleeds

* Does not settles into the lines of lips

* Vibrant pink shade which will suit the festive mood




SWATCH- NATURAL LIGHTING




















Cons:

* Sharpening this lip crayon is a pain as it is too soft

* I had to purchase Oriflame Sharpener as the crayon did not fit the standard jumbo or normal eye/lip pencil sharpener

* Melts like hell so think before carrying it in your purse



                  I rate Oriflame Lip Crayon in Striking Rose 4 out of 5. Its a bold but gorgeous shade of pink and should suit most Indian skin tones. If you purchase Oriflame Lip Crayons, make sure to ask for their sharpener as well. Recommended only to beauties who love to wear bold, bright and vibrant shades on their lips.
