My Favourite Lip Crayons
I love a great lipstick, but I’ve always preferred lip glosses and crayons for everyday use. They’re moisturising and usually pack a punch of colour so they’re somewhat what you get when a lipstick and lip balm have a baby. I’m always carrying at least 3 lip crayons at a time, I just recently counted how many lip products I had and I think it came to nearly 31 and most of them were lip crayons. Madness.
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense – The Chubby Stick Intense* is the bolder, louder sister of the original Chubby Stick. It gives full on coverage while keeping your lips moisturised, and I love that the finish isn’t as glossy and balmy as the original either. You really could get away with them being just lipsticks. My favourites are Chunkiest Chilli and Plushest Punch.
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick – I’m a huge fan of the usual Soap & Glory products, but I didn’t think that their makeup would be as good. I’ve now been proven wrong and the Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Sticks* are definitely one of my all time favourite lip crayons. They’re incredibly moisturising and have a gorgeous vanilla smell which reminds me of MAC lipsticks. They come in three shades, Nudist and Fuchsia-Ristic and Plum Jam which looks beautiful on darker skin.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain – First of all, I hate the name; there’s nothing about these crayons that would suggest you’ve been bitten on the lips. Why would you want that anyway? Regardless, these crayons come in a huge variety of shades with my favourites being Crush and Lovesick. The Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains really do what they say on the tin, or shall I say tube – they definitely stain. I’m sure nothing would annoy you more than spending a lot of money on a lip crayon that never stays, but for just £5 at Boots you’re getting great value for your money!
Ted Baker Lip Crayon Set – I should have written about these Ted Baker Lip Crayons* a long time ago because they were a gift set sold for Christmas but I posted them on Instagram and a lot of you were interested in them! Anyway, there are 4 of these lip crayons in shades ranging from coral to dusky pink. These crayons also have full colour coverage but they’re also quite glossy.
