When I decide to control my expenses on makeup, I end up buying more makeup! 😛 But when your favorite brand launches a new product and that too for just 185 bucks, it doesn’t hurt the pocket. I am talking about Lakme Enrich Lip Crayon which has been looked upon as a surprise by the makeup hoarders for being so pocket-friendly. I just got one shade – Candid Coral from the range so that I can test it out for myself.
So, here goes the review…

My Take On This Product
Lip crayons are a thing these days! Every other brand is launching their own lip crayons and my wish list keeps on expanding. 😀 So, I picked up this beautiful coral lip crayon from Lakme during the Myntra sale. I was disappointed that it didn’t come with a free sharpener. Never bothered to ask though!
So this lip crayon comes with a black plastic cap which is not s sturdy. I always carry it in a pouch to save the mess, rather than simply slipping it into my bag. The shade is a lovely coral with a hint of pink. When I swatched it on my hand, the color showed off beautifully. But on my lips, it didn’t glide that easily. I had to rub it many times to get the shade. It still looked dull when compared to the swatch on my hand. However, I liked it as a daily wear shade because it looked subtly beautiful. The staying power is not that great as it stays only for 3-4 hours.
Take a look at the swatches and LOTD,
I am not happy with the texture of this lip crayon as the pigment doesn’t show up on my lips. But, I already had fewer expectations from this crayon considering it’s low pricing. I am simply going to smear it on my lips every other day because it makes a perfect daily wear shade.
♥ Beautiful coral shade
♥ Doesn’t look patchy on lips
♥ Does not dry the lips
♥ Perfect daily wear
♥ Easily available
♥ Many shade options
🙁 Doesn’t glide so smoothly on the lips
🙁 Pigment is not that great
🙁 Too many forced pink shades in the entire range
🙁 The formula could have been better. There are so many good lipsticks below 200 INR already!
Will I Recommend This to You?
If you have pink lips with no pigmentation issues like mine, you can very well go for Lakme Enrich Lip Crayons. It is an affordable lip crayon that can be used daily.
