bourjois colour boost lip crayons

Although I'm a complete lipstick addict and own pretty much ever shade known to man I've only just got round to trying out these crayon form creations that are the latest trend in the beauty world. I'm definitely a sucker for pretty packaging and I love the twist-up design on these and I've found that it's pretty impossible to accidentally smush the product when you are putting the lid back on too. If you aren't such a fan of bulky packaging then these probably won't be your best friends as they have a little less product in (2.75g) than Mac lipsticks (3g) but take up double the amount of space up in your make up bag. That being said, they apply like a dream onto the lips. Think the hydration and smoothness of a balm but with high quality pigment of a lipstick. I've found that you can blot the product into the lips to create a more matte look or build it up to create a more glossy finish, after application the product leaves a stain on the lips which lasts a good couple of hours. They are perfect to reapply throughout the day as they won't dry out your lips and end up feeling cakey as continued use of some lipsticks can tend to do, all in all the perfect option for a bright daytime lippie.


  1. They look good! My mum has some of these, I must admit I'm yet to try any myself but I do like the idea.

  3. I have one of these (I think Red Sunset?) and i quite like them. They're a bit waxy but last ages! x

  4. I have Fuchsia Libre too. I find it very similar to Clinique's chubby stick in Pluchest Punch, great dupe! x
