Hope you all are doing well. Wasn’t well for the past couple of days but I finally decided to hop out of bed and get back to blogging. Today I’m going to write about one of my favorite lip colours from a brand named Manna Kadar. It’s a novel brand for me. Fab Bag gave us a chance to select a product between some shades of Sugar Matte as Hell lip crayons and few shades of Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming lip wands. Literary, I should have gone for Sugar lip crayons as they were well known and well tested but I just fell in love with the shade J’Adore of this brand. I am a big fan of nude & nudish shades, which is why I decided to give this a try.
After selecting the product I Googled for Manna Kadar. I came to know that this brand’s products are being sent out in different subscription boxes. Anyways now I’m ready to write some other details about this lip crayon.
What company says…

In the mirror of my own experience
Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming lip wand comes in a thick crayon pencil shape. The pencil is black in color and made of plastic with a transparent cap. You can easily see the shade of the crayon without removing the cap. The brand name is printed on the pencil and the bottom of the wand is made in the same color of the shade which also makes the selection of the lip color easy. It’s a twist up lip crayon so there is no fear of wasting the product.
The shade J’Adore is a beautiful nude shade with a pinkish undertone. It has a touch of peach hue that makes the shade more attractive. The shade is so pretty and will suit all skin tones.
The texture of this lip crayon is very soft and creamy. It reminded me the Nudestix cheek and lip pencils formula. It glides on beautifully on the lips. It feels super smooth on the lips while applying.
It has wonderful pigmentation. Just one swipe gives you the desired color that is really impressive. It gives a satin finish that I love.
As far as its lasting power is concerned, I will say it’s quite average. It lasts for about 3-4 hours with drinks but without meal so I think it’s okay because you can’t expect to be long lasting from a super creamy formula. A light retouch will be must have if you need your lipstick for longer hours. It can be a bit transferable only while applying. But you can manage it easily. Anyway, these are a couple of down parts of this lip crayon.
The shade is beautiful
Selection of shades will be easy if you have different shades wands
It’s twist up so no need to sharpen and no fear of wastage
Soft and smooth formula
Average staying power
Overall, I’d say it isn’t the best lipstick around, I mean you can get hold of better ones at a much lower price. But still, I have a soft corner for its shade and finish. It’s looks beautiful after applying, I wish it was durable too. To see its high price the performance is a bit disappointing. You can buy this lip crayon if you love its shade and finish.
