When it comes to beauty I am Lazy. You will never find me luxuriating in hours to do my makeup and hair before a night out but I do enjoy mixing it up a little with different looks. I want impact and good results, but fast. There seems to be a real trend for crayon type lip products recently which appeal to me for their ‘slick on’ ease and I’ve tried a few so I thought I’d round them up here and see if any of you had any recommendations?
Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm and Lacquer
I was drawn to the colours of these and I love a Matte lip but I was really disappointed to find that despite the ‘balm’ name, they were super drying on the lip. I do suffer from dry lips so perhaps I’m not the best judge – I’d be really interested to hear if you liked these. I also though the colour range was a little limited. The lacquer was more moisturising but in a strange range of shades that didn’t suit my skin and still nowhere near a ‘balm’.
Clinique Chubby Stick £17
The original fat pencil lip product, this is like a cross between a balm and a lipstick with good colour density and a moisturising formula. It’s moisturising and has a good range of less outrageous colours perfect for your work bag.
H&M Lip Pen £2.99
I picked one of these up on a whim in H&M whilst shopping because I thought for the princely sum of £2.99 it could hardly disappoint. I wasn’t wrong as it is lovely and soft, moisturising on the lip and the colour builds as you apply. Of course there are only a few shades and the peachy shade I chose is really better for summer, but definitely worth a try for the price! 🙂
Have you tried any of these or can you recommend a new moisturising lip colour for me?
