|Sultry, somber or sassy. Women love drama! Unleash your drama quotient with Lakme’s Drama Stylist CrayonHow to Apply
Lakme joined the bandwagon shadow crayons & launched their Drama Stylist Crayons in Absolute range. I picked up Purple from the collection. These shadow crayons from Lakme comes as a chubby wooden sharp enable pencils with cap & coloured tails for the easy shade identification. And because these are sharpen able, there’s considerable product wastage. I would have preferred twist up forms as such.Lakme has been going crazy with the pricing part and looking at the quantity & product wastage no doubt these are expensive!
The shade range includes: Purple, White, Pink, Olive, Blue, Bronze, Grey & Turquoise
PURPLE is a midtoned blackened purple with scarcely perceptible silver shimmers giving a frost finish. Worked over a deeper base color, it looks sultrier.
The formula is very impressive with soft & smooth texture, intense pigmentation & long wear power. It glides smoothly & evenly on lids for a smooth finish without any patchiness. A single pass pays off rich true color on the lids which needs to be worked out quickly or else it settles down fast into a smudge proof & waterproof formula which do not budge in anyway. The formula is very workable & blends in effortlessly. These can be used as base to follow up with powder shadows to make them last longer & intensify them further. The wear power is superb. Purple wears for fantastic 9-10 hours without budging or fading in anyway after which I could see some wear off from the edges. I didn’t face any creasing issues and need a good oil based remover to wipe the color completely out of lids. Purple flares equally well on my waterline too which otherwise are extremely watery. Overall looking at the fabulous formula, I would have recommended them but the steep pricing by Lakme is surely a big setback where we get same commendable formulations with other brands with much better pricing.
- Easy to located wooden pencil packaging.
- Soft & smooth texture without any interference of the otherwise barely perceptible shimmers.
- Smudge proof & waterproof formula.
- Highly pigmented.
- Long wearing.
- Can be doubled up as eyeshadow base.
- The pencil is sharpen able leading to product wastage.
- The formula sets in pretty fast leaving only few seconds to work with, which might not be convenient for some.
- The pricing! Is the biggest drawback here. Its unreasonably high looking at the other much budgeted brands who offers same formula depth for better economical pricing.
I would have surely recommended these looking at the formula & performance but the pricing is big disappointment here. If you are willing to shed some extra bucks just to try out how our own Lakme flared with these pencil crayons, go ahead or else you have much better options with same wonderful formula available in market. Rest all assured the formula is very functional right from smooth & soft texture, rich pigmentation, even & flawless finish and of course superb longevity.
