L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Lip Crayon in Pomegranate Punch: Review, Swatch and FOTD

Its attack of the jumbo crayons on Colors Of My Life…we had the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil, the Lakme Absolute Eye Shadow Crayon and today I am going to review another cute colorful chubby pencil from L’Oreal Paris called the Glam Shine Lip Crayon

Price: Rs. 400 for 2.5 gms.

As the name suggest, L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Lip Crayon has a chubby crayon like packaging with a silver cap.  The packaging is of the same color as the shade of the crayon and you have a twist up system in it. Word of caution…the cap has a tendency to come off so be very careful when you carry it around or you’ll end up with a messed up hand bag.

The texture of the product is quite similar to a lip balm. Its feels very light on your lips and when you apply it, it just glides on your lips again almost working like a lip balm but minus the heavy waxy feeling. It also keeps the lips moisturized the whole time it stays on. It has a strong chemical like fragrance to it which has a tendency to linger…people with sensitivity to fragrances…sniff it before you buy it :p
There are four shades available in this range but most of them washed me out so I picked one of the darker ones- Pomegranate Punch. Pomegranate Punch is dark berry pink with red undertones and honestly I feel its one of those shades that look very flattering on Indian skin tone. This shade has these tiny shimmer particles that give it a glossy finish but the shimmers are not chunky so you don’t have to worry about looking OTT.  I am not a shimmer person but this shade is an exception for me.

These crayons are quite pigmented so one swatch is enough to get a rich coat of color on your lips. Staying power is around 4-5 hours. When the shade fades it leaves a very strong tint behind minus the glitter. You just see a speck or two of glitter but nothing alarming.

Here is how it looks on me

Final verdict, definitely a good product. I haven’t come across too many things from L’Oreal Paris that have an under 500 bucks price tag and such great quality. I love wearing it when I need a pop of color on my lips and in case I feel I look too shiny I just blot it and I am left with a beautiful berry oink tint on my lips. The moisturizing factor is an added advantage. The only complain I have about it is that I have to be very careful when I carry it around…I have already had a messy experience so I make sure I don’t give it too much space to move around in my bag.
