Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon 'Plum Russian' Review

October 15, 2013

The other day I was happily browsing through a few blogs to find that Bourjois have released two new shades of their majorly hyped Color Boost Lip Crayons, which I had been eagerly awaiting so I nipped into my local Boots the other day to see if I could get my hands on them.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon - Boots (£7.99)

Luckily my local Boots had the new shades in stock, as they are often pretty slow at getting new releases in stock straight away so I knew I had to pick up at least one of the shades.

Out of the two shades I decided to pick up the Bourjois Color Boost 'Plum Russian' Lip Crayon, which is the perfect plum/berry shade that I think I will wearing a lot this A/W. As soon as I swatched this on the back of my hand I knew I had to have it, seeing as I love my plum lip colours. Just like the other Color Boost Lip Crayons (review here), this glides on so smoothly leaving a pigmented glossy wash to my lips that can be easily built up to give a bolder lip look. I love how hydrating these are, especially as my lips are always super dry during the winter months and they last so well on my lips, so I can myself opting for this a lot more than my lipsticks this A/W.

If you haven't delved into the lip crayon world yet I would highly recommend starting off with these as they are super affordable and are often on offer in Boots. They also have a small, yet wide variety of shades where you could find one or two shades to suit you - I have four out of the six shades available and I love every single one of them!

Have you tried out these lip crayons yet?

  6. I've never tried a lip crayon before, i'm so behind the times, haha! I'm so glad you swatched this because I would have guess it to be a lot darker than it actually is. I'm considering dipping my toe in the 'lip crayon craze' x

  12. I haven't tried any of these yet (but have certainly lusted after them) but I do really want both of the new shades. I really want some plum shades for my lips now the season has changed but I don't think I can get away with a dark lipstick look so this might be perfect for me x
