About The Looks!
The lip crayons come in a convenient retractable chubby packaging which is super good as you don’t have to go through the pain of sharpening it and end up wasting product. The color of the crayon is in correspondence to the shade and thus makes it super easy to identify without looking at the name. The cap is of plastic and is transparent. The quality is okay.

My experience with the Luxurious Ultime Pro Crème Lip Crayons!
I will talk about the colors first. Starting with Fantasy (07), this is such a strange shade for me! I have never come across such a shade. Its a mix of Peach, Pink and Pale nude colors. So I would say it is a peachy pink color which looks like pale nude too! It will be perfect with a dramatic eye make up or day time wear ! The other shade Cherrypop (08) is a very pretty color! It is exactly the shade of the fruit cherry! Its a dark, blue toned red. You would see both cool and warm tones in it. It is an equal blend of both, that is why it neither does looks like a dark red nor like a dark plum. I really love this one! It brightens up the face and will suit all skin tones due its warm undertones. It will be perfect for the coming autumn and winter season and for both day and night looks!
The texture is super-duper creamy! Not kidding when I say that, because it actually starts melting when you start applying it on your lips. The warmth of our body makes that happen. I store these in my refrigerator so that whenever I apply it doesn’t melt easily and stay a little bit more sturdy and strong. Though keeping in refrigerator doesn’t affects the creamy texture at all!
The formula is good and glides on the lip very easily. The light shade Fantasy can be a little bit patchy not much and can be fixed. The other shade Cherrypop is perfect in every sense, no patchiness, doesn’t settles in the fine lines and gives an even application. Both the shades leave a glossy finish. Pigmentation of both lip crayons is amazing and opaque! Just one layer would give you a super opaque coverage! Its surprising that a formula so creamy can give such a great pigmentation!!
Lasting power can’t be expected from these lip crayons, since they have such creamy formula they last for around 3-4 hours without any drink or meal. They tend to get on your teeth so don’t forget to do the finger trick. Also you would need a lip liner with this to make the edges sharp and prevent feathering.
If you love super creamy lippies with great pigmentation, then this one is for you! I love both the colors but particularly the shade Cherrypop! These are suitable for all Indian skin tones and can go with both day and night time occasions! For the price it is a very good deal I would say!
