My take on the Product

 

The L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine lip crayon is the newest crayon to join the growing family of lip crayons in the market! But what distinguishes it from the others is the price point. Its priced at Rs 400 which is quite reasonable and you get a lovely product for the price! I am quite surprised though because L’Oreal is one of those brands that almost borders high end when it comes to pricing especially in their lip products.

The packaging is standard – colored twist up crayon packaging. It comes with a silver cap and the tubes are colored according to the shade. There are 4 shades in this range – mostly on the lighter side and I picked up 909 because I prefer more pigmented, darker colors. The product is described as a balmy gloss by L’Oreal and that describes the texture quite well. Its is smooth and glides like a lip balm on the lips giving a juicy finish. Its not too glossy however and has a balmy look. It feels very light weight on the lips, doesn’t sit into the lip lines and barely leaves a stain behind. Its quite pigmented but not fully opaque – but it gives enough color to even out pigmented lips. Pomegranate Punch being the darkest shade wears about 4 hours on me after which is fades. I think the lighter colors will wear lesser.

It is not long wearing since it doesn’t stain but its decently (though not super) moisturizing and I prefer that over long stay. You don’t need to worry about exfoliating/moisturizing lips before wearing this. It applies very uniformly over the lips. This reminds me a lot of the Bourjois Lip crayon – texture and finish wise.

Pomegranate Punch is a reddish berry pink color containing fine pink shimmer. The shimmer is quite understated and doesn’t show much on the lips. It doesn’t sit into lip lines either once the color starts to fade. But its not 100% non-gritty because I feel it a little if I rub my lips together freshly after application. The color will work for many skin tones and you can even blot it with your finger for a softer, stained look. I would definitely recommend this over the colors from this range!

The packaging doesn’t mention the quantity but I twisted it up fully and it seemed the same as the Lakme Absolute Lip tint though the bullet is thicker so it’ll be over 2 g.

Overall Verdict

 

To sum up, L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine lip crayon is like a highly tinted glossy lip balm – the texture is lovely and quite moisturizing on the lips. It feels light weight and wears about 4 hours but doesn’t leave a heavy stain behind. It wears very evenly and there is no patchiness of color or the fine shimmer. And all this for Rs 400 makes it winner! Pomegranate Punch is the darkest of the 4 shades – the other shades being sheerer and lighter. I love it! Highly recommended!

    Ankita, I love the Nivea Pomegranate Lip Balm( which even you have reviewed earlier)… will this look similar to that?
    I am searching for a lip gloss similar to that! Can you please suggest me on this. Please.

    Bdw.. this shade looks amazing on you! 🙂

    What a lovely shade! It looks a little sheer in the swatch, but on your lips it looks more opaque. That’s good for me, since I like fuller coverage. 🙂

    Hey..
    I am in search of good natural lip stain/balm.
    Have recently purchased Revlon just bitten kissable lip stain in Rendzvous shade…now I am finding little economical version of Revlon just bitten kissable lip stain in shade Honey…Will any one from above range would be good choice ..?? My lips are pigmented and skin tone is yellow-medium fair and a shade which looks like natural pink lips..plz plz help…..reply soon

      Hi Ujas, the other 3 shades from the L'Oreal Glam Shine range are light and shimmery. You could check out Peach Pleasure from this range, it might be the closest thing to a natural pink but I don;t think its a dupe for Revlon Honey.
