Beauty Obsession : Lip Crayons + Peek into my Collection
The latest trend in lip products are lip crayons. What are they? Somewhere between a lip gloss and a lipstick they are packed in cute crayon forms and the best part with them is the ease of application
I was introduced to them when Clinique launched the Chubby sticks . The chubby sticks were priced really high and the not-so-great reviews meant I wasn’t getting them. Everything changed with the launch of just bitten balm stains by Revlon. Revlons Lip crayons were priced pretty decently and had amazing staying power and colour pay off and I rushed get myself my first lip crayon In Rendezvous. I was amazed at how convenient they were to use , no lip brush or a lip liner was required and yet I got a bright even finish which wasn’t too gloopy like a gloss. Then began my obsession as I went on to buy more crayons in adore, darling, love sick, romantic and dint stop there. I ventured into other brands and brought a Loreal glam gloss and an Oriflame lip Impact crayon too.

My Favorite ones still are Revlon Just bitten balm Stains which though are a bit pricey at 700 but they are totally worth the money giving an amazing staying power of around 6 hours and having 10 wearable shades to choose from. They arent very moisturizing so don’t think of them as a substitute to your lip balms.
Revlon Just Bitten balm stain in Rendezvous is pure orange . This is my first orange lip colour and I love it but don’t realy use it much. If you want to try out an orange lip this could be your pick.,
Revlon Just Bitten balm stain in Darling is a light purlish pink which is perfect for everyday wear for soft make up look
Revlon Just Bitten balm stain in adore is a brown with red undertones which will suit all indian skin tones. Minty feel, glossy finish, amazing staying power , sleek packaging whats not to like? This is my most used crayon and I recommend this gorgeous shade to everyone
Revlon Just Bitten balm stain in Lovesick is a fushcia pink which is not suitable for warm tones beauties. Fair skinned girls will love this
Revlon Just Bitten balm stain in Crush is a Dark burgandy shade. Crush also could be addressed as a deep plum and has the most staying power. Not a favourite with me as I hate dark colours but if you like deep plums you should try this. This definitely will suit a great range of skin tones and makes for a great winter lip colour
Revlon Just Bitten balm stain in Romantic is a red with orange undertone. It will suit most indian skin tone and can be wore anywhere . another gorgeous shade I recommend to all. If you want to start with wearing red, romantic is your answer.
The LOreal Paris Balm shine Balmy gloss in Pomegranate Punch is a glossy maroon with some shimmer in it. This doesn’t have a very good staying power (about 2 hours) but is very moisturizing and decently pigmented. It is priced just right at 400 INR and if you want to experiment with lip crayons this is the range to start from.
Oriflame Lip Impact Crayon in Pink Impact is a mauve glossy pink which is priced at 350 (could be brought for even less) . Frankly this was a huge disappointment for me as the crayon is too soft and melts away faster than. Add to it the need of sharpening and a not very impressive staying power of around 3 hours. I wouldn’t recommend this one even for the price. I actually use a lip brush to dig in product and apply on my lips as the normal jumbo sharpener cant sharp it!
Why Am I obsessed with Lip Crayons?
- Ease Of Use: I can apply it even without a mirror. A swipe and iam done. No need of a lip brush or lip pencil
- Packaging: The packaging both cute and travel friendly. Adorably compact they are fun to use
- Bid Bye to Sharpeners: There is no wastage because of sharpening as these crayons come in a twist up packaging. (But the oriflame one does need to be sharpened)
- All in One gloss cum balm cum lipstick: Lip Crayons are the best thing of all lip products packaged into one. They are very moisturizing , stay for long and add decent colour too.
