When it comes to lipsticks, I am just too specific about the colour. For years now, I have been a fan of nude lip shades and I continue to have a calling for them. The nude lip colour palette has a lot of shades to offer and I keep trying a lot of them. 

Recently, I got my hands on a matte lip crayon lipstick by Kay Beauty. Read on to know my detailed review.

Fragrance/Texture

There is no fragrance present in these lip crayons. Surprisingly, when you apply the lipstick first on your lips, it glides smooth but starts to get dry a few minutes later. 

My Experience

I love buying lipsticks and it is rare that I don't try a new launch. I like experimenting with the brands but not my colour palette. I usually stick to natural, nude lip colours and thought 'Scripted' by Kay Beauty will be a great addition to my collection. 

And yes, it indeed is. The colour is beautiful - light, very natural for my skin tone, a good mix of the pink and brown family. I guess it would work well for any woman with an Indian skin tone. 

The lipstick is rich in pigmentation and has a really good staying power. So, if you are someone who is looking for a lip crayon which is matte and doesn't move all day long, this can be a good pick.

What I didn't like about the lip crayon was that it started to dry out my lips after a few minutes. If you have experimented with a lot of lip crayons before, you might not really enjoy its formula. 

When I first applied this lip crayon, I wanted to take it off after a few minutes because it made my lips quite dry. However, I loved the shade. So, ever since then, I have been applying it over my lip balm. It felt a lot more better. Also, to prevent my lips from drying out further, I use a lip mask or cream post removing the lipstick. 

Overall, I think this lip crayon is an above average buy. It does give you great, long lasting colour. However, if the formula had a moisturising, it would have been a lot more better.

Cons

  • Dries out lips

Verdict

I loved the shade, it worked just perfectly for my skin tone. Also, thelipstick doesn't move all day long so you don't have to really touch up all the time. However, the lip crayon is quite drying. If you can wear a lip moisturising cream or regular lip balm under this one, it will work for you. For the colour and long lasting formula of the lipstick, I would give it a thumbs up.
