Now I know a lot of bloggers have been raving about these things, but these seriously need to be raved about! As most of you probably saw I picked up one of these in my recent beauty haul (here), in the hope that they weren’t going to just be another over hyped product like the Apocolips Lip Lacquers earlier this year were. (Also sorry for the quality of these photos, these are a right pain to photograph!)
|Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon – Boots (£7.99)|
The Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons are another take on the ever so popular Clinique Chubby Sticks, which I have never actually tried but I have always been intrigued by as i’ve heard some great things about them. With the lip crayon craze still going strong, I thought i’d finally delve into the lip crayon world and so far i’m pleasantly surprised.
I picked up just the one lip crayon in the shade ‘Red Sunrise’, which is a lovely raspberry red shade. I normally don’t opt for red shades, but out of the four shades available this one appealed the most after swatching it on the back of my hand. I love how these glide on so smoothly and leave a pigmented lightweight glossy finish to the lips that your hair doesn’t stick to at all and leaves your lips feeling super hydrated.
These lip crayons are also said to last up to ten hours on the lips and I think they probably would as they seem to stay put pretty well. Also these lip crayons have SPF15 within the formula, which is always a thumbs up especially in the heatwave were having at the moment.
Have you tried any of these lip crayons yet? Also look out for new shades this autumn!
