Lip Crayons

lip crayons

It’s hard to go past products that take the mess and fuss out of your makeup application, as well as save you time. The introduction of crayon-style lip products several years ago, like Clinique’s chubby stick, has done exactly that. It can be worn as a lip tint, a lipstick (when applied several times), and yet has the weightless feel of a lip stain.

Have you tried one yet? It seems every month another cosmetic company is launching their own version, which means we are spoilt at the moment in terms of colour and price. While Clinique is still the leader when it comes to colour range (16 in the collection), I can’t go past Revlon’s Just Bitten Kissable Range for quality, colour (10 shades) and price (about $20 each).

Application Tip: These were originally designed to be applied on the go (without a mirror) and worn as a stain. If you prefer a more dramatic lip look, switch to your lipstick rules: use a mirror, apply 2-3 coats and use a lip liner for precision!
