Hey Guys,

Firstly wish you all a Very Happy Diwali! I hope everyone is doing well. I will be announcing the giveaway winner in my video today on YouTube. Stay Tuned. Coming back to today’s post, I thought of doing a review of some new lippies that I found last month on a beauty tour adventure. I visited the Beauty Expo last month and  I had the worst time of my life for the second time in two years. I will be sharing my horrible experience very soon. But for now, I am pretty satisfied with deals I could fetch. Of all the deals, these lippies were on BOGO. Considering how costly they are individual, I decided to grab the deal. These lippies are from the brand Proarte. Its an Indian based brand who manufactures their products in Germany. I picked up the Velour Lip Crayon in Brownie Pout and Mauve Crush. Of all the shades, these were the nudest ones I could get.

Price: – INR 450 for 3 grams( I got them for BOGO)

Ingredients:-  Not Mentioned 

Where to Buy:-  Since I got it at an exhibition, I am not sure where you can get them around the shops. But they do have their own website. You can check it out here. They also have a sale going on right now.

Packaging:-  The product comes in a transparent outer packaging. Sadly at the exhibition, they were without any packaging.

Shades I got:- 

  1. Brownie Pout- This shade a nice deep brown which can look great on medium to dusky skin tones. It will also look good on fair skin tones to give a nice goth look.
  2. Mauve Crush:- This is a pure purple pink magenta mixed shade. It will suit medium skin tones well.

My Experience:- 

Being my first time trying out cosmetics from Proarte, I was a bit skeptical when I found them so cheap. Little did I know that these would indeed end up being a part of my daily beauty routine. The Velour lippies come in a crayon form which I feel is one of the most travel-friendly packaging ever. Although the only issue here would be sharpening the product which would actually burn my soul on looking at the product wastage. The lip crayons have a good shade range for every mood. Since I am strongly into nude lippies I thought of buying the brown shade and a dusky mauve shade. Too bad they did provide me with testers because the shade I had in mind was completely different from I got. Nonetheless, I am happy with them.

These lippies come with distinct strong fragrances which can be a bit bothersome. They have a strong fruity smell, a smell which I can’t stand at all costs. The application of these lippies is so smooth. They do not tug or pull on he lips. They have a One-Stroke kinda application which gives a good coverage in just one stroke. These lip crayons are highly pigmented which stay on for a rather longer time than an average lipstick. Post application it leaves a nice healthy tint according to the shade chosen. Being ultra matte, they do no have drying properties which is a blessing for chapped lip beauties like me. Also, they have a really long wearing time which would be around 5+ hours. Since they are waterproof, they do not feather, bleed or transfer easily.  They feel so weightless on the lips. Lastly apart from the fragrance, the other thing that really bothers me is how prone they are to breakage. These crayons are extremely creamy and break on with the slightest pressure of anything. I have already broken both my crayons and the damage has made them look like they have been savaged off. Also, the ingridienent list is missing. Overall I am very impressed with Lip crayons and wish to buy more 🙂
