Packaging Of Lakme Absolute Victorian Rose Lip Tint Matte Crayon:

Lakme Absolute Lip Pout in Victorian Rose Comes in a matte opaque chubby pencil form with twist up mechanism , which is great for it erases the use of a sharpener and thus saves from wastage of the product!The pointed tip gives a neat application. The pencil is color coded with a silver cap. And the silver cap might come off easily for its lose and does not sit tight on the chubby stick (BIG CON)


It is not creamy neither powdery and does glide evenly on the lips but a little (very lil) tug is required while applying it. It being a matte lip crayon it surprises by how comfortably it sits on my lips, overall very impressive!


This is super super pigmented but not too deep. Two swipes and you are ready to rock that bold matte look!


A slight floral fragrance which wavers off after a while.

Staying Power:

Stays for about a good 7-8 hours on my lips after the color starts to fade from the centre of my lips. I had to re apply it after meals.

Shade/ Colour:

A beautiful bold reddish pink with warm coral hints. Glides on the lips to give a beautiful rosy pink red vibrant look! This is one a shade I din't have even a close dupe of.

My experience with Lakme Absolute Victorian Rose Lip Tint Matte Crayon:

My very first Lakme lip pout was a gift and was in the shade ' Raving Red' . As I am a die hard fan of matte lip colors I was very excited to try more shades from Lakme's Lip pout range. After which I picked up Victorian Rose and tangerine Touch in a sale on Flipkart and boy both the color where mind blowing. But I had to give it to 'Victorian Rose' as transformed my face totally I loved 'Victorian Rose' for it gave my lips a rosy flush and it was super matte! Though the cons like drying lips and having to put a little effort while applying it i was totally sold to this shade. It did not accentuate the fine lines of my lips and I did not need a lip balm underneath. 
I would not wear this shade on a daily basis but every now and then I would wear this when I want something very beautiful and unique. It is a little drying after 3 hours of application and my lips start to chap a little after a period of 7-8 hours. Hence I highly recommend you scrub your lips before applying this matte crayon.
I also found that the silver cap did not fit the crayon well and would slip off :( and hence I am very hesitant to carry it in my purse. Or place it in a plastic bag and then keep it in my purse. The packaging is a let down for the silver cap is way to lose. All the four lip pouts have a lose cap and I hate it *cry*


Easily available at all drugstores, online and Lakme Counters.

In a Nutshell:

Overall the lip pout crayon is a gorgeous coral -pink-red shade which will look flattering on both fair skinned beauties and dusky beauties! It can survive light meals and has amazing staying power . If you are looking for a go-to vibrant shade in the form of a lip crayon this your lip product ladies, Don't think- BUY IT!

Pros :

  1. Gorgeous pink-red-coral shade
  2. Will suit both dusky beauties and fair skinned women.
  3. Retractable color coded packaging
  4. Great pigmentation
  5. Not that drying , works okay with exfoliated lips or a chap stick underneath.
  6. Staying power is good
  7. The crayon form makes it easier to apply
  8. Availability is easy.
  9. Did not transfer for me
  10. Super matte form.
  11. Affordable when compared to other drugstore brands.
  12. Works nicely even for dry lips (My sis has dry lips and she went bonkers over Victorian rose and bought it even when it was not on sale :P)
  13. Available in other 5 bold shades.


  1. The silver cap sits does not sit tight on the color coded crayon and hence it is not travel friendly as there is a chance of breakage.
  2. Not suitable if the lips are not well exfoliated or moisturized.

Swatch :

Who will like this:

If bold matte lip colours is your thing this is a must try for you. If pink is your color Those who love a lot of color and bold lips don't give this shade a miss. I think Victorian Rose will suit almost all Indian skin tones. If you are lip crayon lover than you can give this a go!

BlingSparkle Rating:

4.5/5 (The lose silver cap is the culprit for the - .5!) -.-

BS Tip :

Use a lip balm or a chap stick underneath if you have dry lips as you know matte lip crayons will look drastic after a few hours of application. And if you have normal lips then its better you scrub your lips and exfoliate them to get that even flawless lip look that will slay everybody off *wink wink*
