I saw this advertisement in a magazine and I knew I had to have one, I mean really, can you have too many lip crayon type thingies? No and anyway this one is different, it’s super shiny and glossy according to the ad. When I headed into Boots and there was a 3 for 2 offer on, then really it would have been just wrong not to get one. I choose a bright bright pink colour since my other lip crayons are shades of dusky and plum pink, so totally different then.

I have to say it’s not quite what I was expecting. Because of the ad I was expecting more of a pearlescent shine (I have a bit of a thing for pearlescent shimmer). Now it is glossier than my other crayons but nowhere near as pretty and shiny as I thought it would be. It’s no replacement for lip gloss. I know all about airbrushing in ads and all that jazz and I didn’t expect it to be the exact same but it is a let-down when something is nowhere near as pretty in reality as it is in the advertisement.

Having said all that, it’s still a nice lippy. I thought the colour would be slightly coral but it’s quite a strong bright pink on, so more of a going out lippy for me. It is very comfortable to wear and lasting time is what you would expect from these crayon type lipstick / balm hybrids; a couple of hours as long as you don’t eat or drink. As the colour fades it leaves a stain but more so around the outer part of your lips so keep an eye on that or you may end up looking like a child that just had a Popsicle. All in all it is pretty and it’s nice to wear so even though it’s not exactly what I expected it’s still a good lip product especially for €10.75.
