5 Lip Crayons You Need Now

You may have noticed cute lip crayons in your local beauty store lately. The popularity of the lip crayon is on the rise and we explain why you need to try them out… now!

Lip crayons are like a lip pencil but much thicker. You can kick your liner and lipstick to the kerb because a lip crayon can do both jobs for you.

Lip crayons are incredibly easy to use. If you can use a pen/ pencil, you can use one of these babies. Like a crayola crayon, lip crayons add color, hydrate, and last as long as a lipstick, without having to layer.

Theses little sticks of happiness can be sheer or opaque; matte, glossy, or satin; balm or stain.

Lip crayons are everything you love about gloss, but none of what you hate. A sheer lip crayon can replace your gloss, as it does the same job without the stickiness. Yuk.

The best thing about lip crayons is you don’t need a sharpener. When the tip gets low, all you have to do is twist the bottom and more pencil appears. Magic!

For a polished and perfect lip look, apply foundation on and around the lips before lip colour. Foundation helps to prep the lip area for a more flawless application and helps lip colour last longer.
