Hey guys, hope you’re well <3.
As someone who is fairly lazy, (or as I like to say, ‘effort selective’) I love products that are quick, convenient and effortless. Therefore, crayon type lip products are way up my alley.
So when Australis had a 50% off sale a few months back, I found these bad boys and had to try them out. The “Cray for Colour Lip Gloss Crayons” claim to be hydrating and nourishing, with vibrant colour and a glossy finish.
I believe this product has been around for quite a while, but they are a recent discovery for me. I own the shades “Twisting Roses”, “Velvet Kiss” and “Sweet Salsa”.
Let’s put them to the test!
A twist up product is always a winner in my books! I love that you don’t have to sharpen them. They are also significantly slimmer than other crayon lip products I know of meaning application is more precise. No complaints from me!
Coming in at an affordable $8.49, it won’t break the bank…especially considering how expensive makeup is in Australia…the struggle is real! Haha
The product comes in six shades, ranging from pink shades, to firey reds and deep plums. Almost something for everyone, but it would be nice if there was a nice nude shade available.
The website states that the product possesses “strong pigments which express a vibrant colour”. I can’t fault that statement, however if that isn’t your thing, it can be sheered out. I love that it’s versatile in that regard.
The formula is smooth and makes application a breeze. Upon application, you’re left with hydrated, glossy lips with the colour of a lipstick and the shine of a lip gloss. The best of both worlds!
As it does have a glossy finish that can be sheered out, the lasting power is what you’d expect. Good for an hour or two, but it definitely will need touching up throughout the day.
Overall, this product is great for on the go and definitely worth trying out and adding to your collection. With the bargain price, you can’t go wrong!
Have you tried this product? Let me know what you think!
