My favourite lip crayons

When the Clinique chubby sticks first hit the market there was quite a lot of excitement about them, they were different - they were in a pen format, but they were essentially a tinted lip balm, and they didn't need a pencil sharpener.  Jumping on the bandwagon I ran out and picked up two - pudgey peony (more for the name than anything else!) and mighty mimosa.  From there all different brands started launching their versions, most recently Rimmel.  I don't have a big collection of these, but I do have a few, so here are my favourites :)

Three lip crayons from Clinique, Bourjois & Revlon

The different lip crayons on my lips

Everyone's different, but on my lips I prefer to either have no colour at all, or bold colour with a bright or dark lipstick, I seldom go for a tinted lip balm, so when I do, I go for a small amount of colour, if the product is sheer, that's a bonus.  For me, the Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty mimosa is the most wearable colour of all these, it's a bit of a 'your lips but better' shade, but keeping them hydrated at the same time.  The Bourjois Colour Boost is probably my second favourite, a bit more colour than I'd normally go for, but it's just so pretty!  Despite the orange packaging, on me at least it doesn't really come out like that.  It's probably the glossiest of the three, but arguably the prettiest too.  Then there's the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (seriously Revlon, think of a longer name next time!), now this one is slightly different to the others, it has a minty scent which doubles up as a slight plumping agent.  I can't say it makes any noticeable difference but it is a pretty colour and does look nice on, it's slightly glossy too.

The chubby stick is probably the driest of the three, if you're looking for hydration more than colour I'd recommend the Bourjois Colour Boost, then the Revlon Just Bitten.  All three are lovely, totally wearable everyday shades and will help keep your lips free of dry skin.  The question is, which is your favourite?

    1. The Chubby sticks are great, I'm not sure I'd like the new ones though, they're a bit too pigmented for me :P
