The moment Clinique released their Chubby Sticks (forever ago) I wanted to try them but for some odd reason I only just got around to seeing what they were all about. Sure, I had swatched them on one of my many leisurely strolls through Sephora but I had never made a purchase because there was always something higher up on my wish list that ended up winning the checkout battle. I also tend to go for more inexpensive lip products because they always seem to get lost in the bottom of my handbag and I'm not big on reapplying throughout the day (I'm more into lip balm). With that being said, I thought it was about time I tried the very trendy lip crayon, especially now that all brands from Bourjois to Rimmel are making their own versions. Starting with the original seems fitting, no?
I got three mini versions in the shades Two Ton Tomato, Voluptuous Violet and Pudgy Peony. I think my favourite of the bunch is Two Ton Tomato but all three are beautiful and wearable shades for someone with pale skin like me. They are extremely easy to apply and are quite low maintenance and I get a couple hours of wear time out of them. I think that these are great for those who don't love the work it can take to make a brighter lipstick look good and prefer a sheerer wash of colour although these are still quite pigmented so you won't be left disappointed like some tinted balms have a tendency to do. What are your favourite lip crayons?
