Hey Creatives, What’s up?
So, a few years ago, I came across a new product in the market, The latest discovery, the invention of the Century: Crayon Lipsticks. I was stunned. Astonished. Surprised. And most of all, excited to know that the twisty crayons that I really wished would turn into crayons, THEY ACTUALLY DID.
They also came with a price tag. Sadly, with my limited (read: tiny) budget, I couldn’t afford more than a couple. Hence began my search for lip crayons and I came across ADS matte lip crayons.
Without wasting much time, let’s get to the review.
Price: Rs. 250 for 5 lip crayons
Shelf Life: 2 years
Availability: Available on Amazon and other makeup outlets.
Product Description: ADS has come up with new Crayon long lasting lip sticks which are unbelievable and comes with long lasting effect to define lips. It is derived from new series which leaves your lip look fuller and sexy. A color saturated, velvety lipstick, Moisturizing and Long wearing.
ADS matte lip crayons come in a very adorable packaging. The retractable mechanism ensures easy and smooth application. So, the cap of the lip crayons is transparent and you can spot the one you want to wear with ease. The colors are very vibrant and bright, perfect to turn heads.
The texture is super duper smooth and it’s so easy to glide them onto your lips. In fact, I think the texture of the lip crayons is so soft, it actually moisturizes your lips. Most of all, it smells great.
The lip crayons have a distinct, floral scent and it is very pleasant. The lip crayons last for an average 2-3 hours without meals and fade away. They’re not waterproof or meal-proof. (Boohoo!)
The matte, bold colors are very well pigmented and show up with just one swipe. Moreover, they’re travel friendly. You can just slip them in your purse or even your pocket. Priced at, roughly, 50 bucks a pop, they’re definitely worth checking out.
Color no. 42: A very lovely, color pink color. It is very playful and funky.
Color no. 11: A color that reminds me of watermelons. It is very warm and will look stunning on fairer skin tones.
Color no. 1: A usual red color perfect for any evening out or even a date!
Color no. 38: A gentle baby pink color. (Reminds me of Nicki Minaj)
Color no.35: A bold maroon color. It is perfect for meetings or formal events.
