Sivanna Lip Crayon in 01–Neon pink Review & Swatch
Lipstick? Lip gloss? Lip balm? – Why Lip crayons thump all of them?Do you prefer lipsticks? During my teenage years everybody would tell me to stay away from lipsticks because they thought it aged people and was for grown ups! Plus I avoided lipsticks myself because if I carried a lipstick I had to carry a small size mirror and handkerchief for touch ups every 30 mins !
So NO to lipstick!
What about Lip glosses?
And Lip balm? What about these?
Hence all of this sums up to as why one should invest in a good lip crayon as they bundle up all the 3 qualities of a lip balm, lip gloss and a lipstick !
Lip crayons are easier to glide , save a lot of time,combat dryness, do not require touch ups , are long lasting come in matte to glossy forms and also act as a lip balm ! What else can a girl ask for?!
So, instead of having to choose between a heavy lipstick, a shiny gloss, or a moisturizing balm, just jump on the lip crayon bandwagon to get the best of the lip world in one. Before lip crayons I used to carry a gloss, many lip balms and lipsticks in my handbag but ever since crayons made an entry I have said goodbye to carrying all the stuff!
Recently I gave shopping on instagram a try, and that is where i bought this pretty lip crayon from. I was a little skeptical to buy from a seller on insta but all was well in the end. I had ordered a different shade but unfortunately the seller sent me another shade. I had heard about Sivanna eye shadow pallet's a lot and when I checked out the prices of these crayons I couldn’t stop myself from buying these cute little crayons!
Sivanna is mostly a brand that is famous in Eastern countries and Sivanna Products sold in India are imported and thus become pricey, otherwise Sivanna cosmetics are quite affordably priced and loved by many in Thailand! Coming to the Crayon pencil , it was the retractable packaging at such an affordable price that caught my attention. Lets take a closer look at this crayon from Sivanna!
Price and Quantity: I bought these for INR 99 on a sale from Instagram seller @Glam__it_up , they are usually sold for INR 150 by instagram sellers.
INR 150 for 2.5gm
Variant being Reviewed: Product shade No 01
Other Variants: 15 other color variants with no names , and just numbers for every shade.
One Word: Moisturizing!Packaging: Absolutely love the packaging, the product might be average but the packaging is surprisingly awesome ! Comes in a black plastic retractable pencil with a transparent cap and shade colour cap at the bottom which acts as a rotator too. Its light and easy to carry plus doesn’t need sharpening! Travel friendly packaging and the black classy packaging is one thing you are bound to fall in love with!
Texture: Lightweight and creamy, glides smoothly on lips and keeps them moisturized for hours!
Pigmentation: As this is a light colour a single swatch does not hide pigmentation of lips and thus two to three swipes are necessary for opaque and even application.
Fragrance: Smells like plastic
Staying Power: Lasts for 2-3 hours . After the color fades off it keeps the lips moisturized for another 2 hours!
Shade/ Colour: Neon pink
Availability: This is a issue but these are sold for higher prices on Flipkart and amazon, but if you want it at an affordable price you can go ahead and order it from instagram sellers I have mentioned above.
Whats Good: P2 ;) The packaging & Pricing!
What could be Better: Shades ! I would love to see more reds, purples and dark pinks !
Will I Repurchase? : Not this shade but I would love to purchase a few reds and browns in this range :D You can buy it from Flipkart here & here
- Retractable packaging which is light & travel friendly!
- Excellent pricing
- Glides smoothly
- Good staying power
- Moisturizing till the hilt!
- Lots of shades to choose from!
- A plasticy smell which I dislike
- Availability a big issue
- The color doesn’t suit medium to dark skin tones and is best for fair skin tone
- The bottom rotator of the crayon which comes colored is misleading for it certainly doens't match the lip crayon present inside ! The reason I ended up buying this sahde was the misleading color packaging!
- Needs two to three swatches on lips to hide pigmentation
BlingSparkle Rating: 4/5BlingSparkle Tip: Those who have pigmented lips might want to swatch it twice or thrice for colour building and hiding dark pigments on lips.
Final Verdict: Moisturizing, good pricing and very beautiful packaging has won my beauty heart and I would definitely love to try more shades from this range ! Sivanna lip crayons are genuinely priced and have good staying power too! Worth every penny I say !
