Currently obsessing over: Lip crayons

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

It's official. I have found another set of products I can't seem to get enough of. I'm talking about lip crayons/ chubby sticks, or how ever you want to call them. 


I currently own six of these lip crayons, but I'm only going to talk about five of them, since I really, really dislike the sixth one. If you're interested to know why I don't like it, you can read about it here.
All of these lipsticks are quite similar when it comes to consistency and they're not the most long lasting lip products out there, but all of them are moisturising and easy to use.

 Revlon Just Bitten Kissable, Bourjois Color Boost, Catrice Pure shine colour lip balm

I love the packaging of these three. I love the fact that they're twist up, so you don't have to sharpen them. This is so practical when you're out and about because you probably don't carry a sharpener with you.


Catrice Cosmetics Pure Shine Color Lip balm in Don't Think Just Pink: 
This one is currently my favourite one. It's the only lipstick I've been wearing since I got it. It's very creamy and buttery soft. It comes off sheer and shiny. It's very moisturising and it's the perfect my-lips-but-better colour. Since it's sheer, is so easy to apply and to touch up. I don't need a mirror and whenever I'm bored, I'll just pull this from my bag and re-apply it. 
It has this strange scent that I can't describe, but it's not strong, so you can't really smell it. 


Bourjois Color Boost Glossy finish lipstick in Orange Punch:
This one is more opaque than the Catrice one. It's still creamy but more waxy. It's moisturising, it last longer than Catrice Lip balm, and it's more glossy. Since it's more opaque, it's a little bit harder to apply and it leaves a stain on you lips.
I have to disagree with the claim that it's waterproof and that it lasts 10 hours.


Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm stain in Cherish/Devotion:
I think that this one looks a lot better with a tan, and I've been wearing in a lot in August. But I think I can still pull if off, if I apply a sheer layer or if I pair it with another shade.
It's opaque and less glossy than the first two. It has this lovely minty smell and it tingles a little bit when you first apply it.
It's not as creamy as the Catrice one, but it leaves a stain like the Bourjois one.

Sephora Ultra vinyl lip pencil, Max Factor Colour Elixir giant pen stick

These two have different packaging than the first three. You have to sharpen them and they're more sleek.


Max Factor Colour Elixir Giant pen stick in Couture blush:
It's extremely soft which makes it difficult to sharpen. It's the most waxy of all and also the least moisturising. It's opaque and easy to build up, but the application can get streaky. It's quite glossy, but it last the longest on my lips. It also leaves a stain.
As you can see on the swatch above, it's more mauve pink, but it comes off more pink on my lips.


Sephora Ultra vinyl lip pencil in Miami pink:
This one looks a lot more vibrant pink in the tube and swatched on my hand, but on my lips it's a lot more toned down.
It's very similar to Max Factor's giant pen stick, but it's not as soft and not as long lasting. It, again, stains your lips and it's the least glossy of all.

So these were the lip crayons I'm currently obsessing over. I know that I'll be getting a few more shades because I've been really enjoying them.

Do you own any of these? If you do, let me know your favourite shades.

  7. Jaz imam samo enega od Catrice, ampak mi niso najljubši (čeprav je super odtenek), ampak raje nosim šminke. Bi pa rada preizkusila kakega od Bourjois, če so bolje pigmentirani kot Catrice, edino ne vem, katero barvo naj vzamem.

    1. Js imam samo tega od Catrice in res ni zelo pigmentiran, ker je pač res nevtralni odteneke, tako da tale od Bourjois je res veliko boljši. Za barvo te pa popolnoma razumem, imam sama tudi podobne težave, ker bi jih imela še več, pa ne vem katere :)
