Pick Up A Crayon

If you haven't noticed that every brand and their sister have come out with a lip crayon, then where have you been? Some may argue that it's overkill whereas some may like the wide choice available. I'm somewhere in the middle, I love a lip crayon and find them convenient to use, however there do seem to be a lot of them on the market lately, which makes choosing one difficult. Here I will be comparing a few from a range of different prices. The best part about all of these is there is no sharpener needed, just twist at the bottom.

Clinique Chubby Stick £17
The one that inspired them all. Clinique were one of the first brands to bring out a lip crayon. Praised for their innovation, hydration and convention, other brands took note and released their own. I am a fan of the Chubby Sticks, I find the colour selection beautiful and you'll most definitely find one you like. They also have an 'intense' version with more of a colour pay off. The hydrating properties are very impressive, and so is the lasting power. These Chubby Sticks do have a distinct scent which I don't really mind. The only thing I don't like about these crayons are how they wear. I find I have to reapply as soon as the colour and shine wears away a little as it starts to look patchy quickly.

Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick £8
Lets try and forget the ridiculous name and focus on the product. These are more of a balm-gloss hybrid and not sticky in the slightest. In fact they feel quite comfortable on the lips. The colour selection is very limited however they are all very wearable and will suit almost any skin tone. The vanilla scent and taste is very pleasant and not overpowering at all. I'm very impressed with this offering by Soap and Glory and keep one in my bag at all times.

No7 High Shine Lip Crayon £9
A new offering by No7 as part of their summer collection, most of the colours are very bright and appropriate for summer. One of the most pigmented crayons of the bunch, I tend to apply it and then blend it with my fingers. These are also very glossy and not sticky in the slightest. Very comfortable to wear when the weather is warm. It wears nicely and evenly leaving a hint of colour behind. One thing that annoyed me with this is the colour of the lip which is supposed to match the crayon, doesn't do so. The packaging promises a warm toned pink, but the crayon itself is a more bright pink shade.

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain £7.99
This is one of my most used lip crayons as I just love the colour. The shade Honey is a perfect 'your lips but better shade' and very wearable. This one is slightly different to the other crayons as it lightly stains the lips with a hint of colour. Once the balm has worn off, lips are left with subtle tint. I find the Revlon Balm Stain to be the most long wearing and keeps the lips hydrated. What I like about these are the colour of the packaging matches the lip colour very closely, unlike with the No7 lip crayon. Taking into consideration the price I think this one is well worth the money.

Are you a fan of lip crayons or are you over it?


  1. Have you tried the Models Own and MUA versions? I love the MUA ones (and the scent is better than the clinique ones) xx
