Hey lovely people! This is Niranjana here and let’s review the newly launched, super affordable matte lip crayons by Bellavoste today.
PRICE & AVAILABILITY : The lip crayons are priced @ just ₹149/- for 2.8gms of the product.
The lip crayons have a solid black body with a transparent plastic cap. Shade indication is given at the bottom of the pencil and there are other details mentioned as well.
The pencil needs sharpening and doesn’t come with a jumbo sharpener. The plastic cap isn’t a tight fitting one so not exactly travel friendly.
SHADES & SWATCHES :
01 THAT’S WHAT I LIKE
02 THINKING OUT LOUD
03 WAKE ME UP
04 TAKE MY BREATH AWAY
05 WORTH IT
06 SETTING FIRES.
07 ONE DANCE
08 LIVING THE LIFE
10 TRULY MADLY DEEPLY
11 LEAN ON
12 ON THE FLOOR
The finish is not fully matte but satin matte and somewhat creamy. The texture is smooth and doesn’t tug lips. It is waterproof but not transfer proof. The darker shades (reds & pinks) are more opaque whereas the nighter browny nudes are sheer and may not be good on pigmented lips.
Shade 05 Worth It has some sort of shimmery finish to it unlike the other eleven.
DID IT WORK FOR ME?
At just ₹149 they did! The staying power is anywhere between 3 to 5 hours for darker shades and lesser for lighter, nude shades. The lip crayon doesn’t crease or crumble and vanishes from the inside of the lips after a meal and does transfer to a spoon or tumbler. But it still wouldn’t look awkward and reapplication is easy.
So to sum up:
✔️ Soft and comfortable satin matte formula
✔️ Doesn’t dry out the lips or crumble.
✔️ Easily available online.
✔️ Easy on the pocket @ just ₹149/-.
✔️ 12 common yet pretty shades to pick from.
✔️ Darker shades fare well on pigmented lips
❌Flimsy plastic cap makes it non travel friendly.
❌Lighter shades fade faster and provides sheer coverage
Overall, the BELLAVOSTE MATTE LIP CRAYONS are truly value for money and a good buy for anyone who’s on a budget but still would not want to sacrifice on quality!
