Lip Crayon Lovin' | Summer Shades


I have a bit of a weakness when it comes to lip products. I just can't seem to walk by any makeup counters without picking up at least one lip product! I could never just stick to one or two - I have to have a different shade nearly everyday! So, today I thought I'd share my three most reached for lip products at the moment and funnily enough they're all lip crayons. Obsessed? I think so! Lip crayons are something that I never would have thought I'd like. I've always just stuck to regular old lipstick and lipgloss. But a good few months ago the Bourjois colour boost lip crayons completely converted me. Here are three of my favourite shades for the summer.....


Sephora glossy lip pencil in 'Glossy pink' - I love this sparkly pink shade. It's so pretty! It's perfect for a natural, everyday makeup look. It has a lovely creamy texture, it glides on effortlessly and gives a sheen finish with a hint of shimmer. It smells like cherry bubblegum (yum!), a little bit goes a long way and it feels very light on the lips. It's not the best lip crayon I've tried but it's good nonetheless. I purchased it when it was on sale for €6! So, it was great for that price!

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 205 'Elusive' - This is a recent addition to my collection. I'm not a huge matte fan to be honest..... I'm hands down a gloss girl but this balm completely converted me. I think it actually looks quite dark and autumnal when it's swatched but I find when I put it on my lips it's actually quite light, subtle and a beautiful summer shade. It glides on to the lips so smoothly and it also has a gorgeous mint scent which smells good enough to eat! They cost €10.99 and they've got 10 different shades to choose from. I can't wait to try out some more shades!

Bourjois Colour Boost lip crayon in 'Peach on the Beach' - This bad boy is no stranger to my blog! I've talked about it before and I'll talk about it again.... I just love it that much! This is a gorgeous peachy pink colour. They are incredibly moisturising and the colour pay off is excellent. They are so pigmented and they have an SPF 15. This is definitely my favourite of the three. I can't wait to get my hands on some more -  'Orange punch' is next on my list to try!

These lip crayons are fantastic! They're long lasting, very moisturising and they are quick and convenient to use. They are also twistable so there's no hassle with sharpening them.


Are you a fan of lip crayons too? What are your favourites? 

Love,
Cliona xx
