L-R Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel, Avon Lip Crayon in Carefree Coral, Stila After Glow Lip Colour in Electric Pink, Topshop Lip Bullet in Covet, Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversize Orange, Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa.

Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel – This is probably my most worn lip crayon as it’s a shade which makes my lips look natural but better; it’s a very similar shade to my all time favourite lipstick (Barely There by Sleek) but super creamy and moisturizing making it a dream to apply and wear.  I really adore this ‘intense’ chubby sticks as opposed to the sheer ones and can’t wait to get my hands on more.

Avon Lip Crayon in Carefree Coral – Avon have recently jumped onto the lip crayon bandwagon with 6 new fabulously pigmented shades.  Carefree Coral is a super bright orange-red shade which I adore at the moment.  These crayons pack a punch of shimmer leaving you with a super sexy bright pout.

 Stila After Glow Lip Colour in Electric Pink – Now this is the most intriguing of the bunch as this lippie glows in the dark… I know, right!  I haven’t yet had a chance to try this out in a clubbing situation but I’ve seen photographs and it looks incredible!  Electric Pink is a bright neon-Barbie pink shade which is spot on for summer.  It is pigmented and creamy, making it easy to wear.

 Topshop Lip Bullet in Covet – This was my most recent makeup purchase I adore it!  I love all things peach and couldn’t resist this creamy peach shade which I’ve been wearing ever since.  This can be a little drying on the lips so make sure you apply lip balm before hand.

Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversize Orange & Mighty Mimosa – If you’re in need of a sheer flush of lip colour for daily wear then the original Chubby Sticks are ideal for you.  I’ve picked out two summer shades for this post, both of which add the slightest bit of colour to you face.  I like to think of these as a lip-balm and colour in one.

What’s your favourite lip crayon?  Recommend me a few!

    I'm absolutely in love with Soap & Glory's Sexy Mother Pucker in the shade Nudist♥ It's a little sheer, but such a natural beautiful colour, and so hydrating!! Oh, and it smells amazing!!

  2. August 19, 2013 / 8:42 pm

    I love the look of the Stila one! Very tempted to purchase 🙂 Great post! X

  3. August 19, 2013 / 8:43 pm

    I've been loving the lip crayon craze too! I would definitely recommend the Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons – they're super moisturising and pigmented and lovely bright shades for the summer!

  4. August 19, 2013 / 8:46 pm

    The Topshop one look pretty amazing, I'm definitely gonna try it! Amazing shade! This summer I've been loving Revlon crayons the most, especially Peach On The Beach, definitely my favourite one xx

    Im surprised not many drugstore balms are in this – anyways this is a great selection! love that topshop colour 🙂

  6. August 19, 2013 / 8:48 pm

    Oooh, I really like the colour of the topshop one. I'm currently trying out the LAQA & Co lip crayon in Ring of Fire from my birchbox. I really like it, but the colour is very bright!

  7. August 19, 2013 / 8:54 pm

    I love the bourjois ones, just wish they would come out with a few more colours!
    Definitely want to try the Clinique ones 🙂

  8. August 19, 2013 / 8:58 pm

    I really like the No7 ones 🙂 I need to try the Soap and Glory ones as I've heard a lot about those! I think my favourite one at the moment is quite possibly the Revlon Balm Stain in 'Rendezvous'

    I've tried the topshop and clinique ones but I'm desperate to get my hands on the stila one, it looks so bright, love it! I have the revlon chubby pencil in rendezvous I think it's called and it's an amazing peachy orange colour, really moisturising and leaves a lovely stain on the lips after the initial colour wears off!

    I bought the Mighty Mimosa Chubby Stick when it first came out, but I actually think that the Bourjois copies are much better! The Clinique original chubby sticks are still great but I think the Colour Boosts are more pigmented and need topping up less often 🙂

  11. August 19, 2013 / 9:29 pm

    I really like the Revlon ones! They are cheap and have some awesome colors! Great post xx Rena Kiss and Make Up

    I've been wanted a lip crayon for a while so this post is just what I needed to read! Think I am going to opt for the Topshop on, I love peach shades for lips.

    Great post! You definitely need to try the Soap and Glory ones or the Bourjois colour boosts if you haven't already! xx

  14. August 19, 2013 / 9:43 pm

    I love the models own ones, I have the shade coral crush and it's so so lovely xxx

  15. August 19, 2013 / 9:47 pm

    I've only tried the MUA ones and they're really nice, but I found in the hot weather they melt really easily so mines actually melted up against the sides of the stick and gone all wonky. I can't complain though as they're only £3 each. 🙂

    I had a look at the Bourjois ones but I wasn't a big fan, but I put this down to wanting one of the Clinique Chubby Sticks. They're so gorgeous!

    All the shades you have are lovely, especially the Stila one. ^_^

  16. August 19, 2013 / 10:04 pm

    I dont own a lip crayon form Clinique but have wanted to get my hands on one for a while now! I love the Bourjois lip crayons. Thanks for the recommendations! 🙂


  17. August 19, 2013 / 10:20 pm

    I love No.7 lip crayon in Daydreamer, it's definitely the best 'your lips but better' for me…and it helps having the Boots vouchers too!

  18. August 19, 2013 / 11:53 pm

    There is a Bourjois one,which is quite amazing too.x

  19. August 20, 2013 / 1:06 am

    Love the Clinique and Stila ones, I also love the Bourjois Color Boosts! 🙂

  20. August 20, 2013 / 3:29 am

    The Topshop one looks absolutely perfect, i have such an addiction to peachy lipsticks at the moment! x

  21. August 20, 2013 / 4:30 am

    I saw an awesome shade of pink in a lip crayon from Pop Beauty but the name is escaping me now… I need to get my hands on that Stila shade ASAP!

  22. August 20, 2013 / 6:51 am

    I need to try one by Clinique. These colors look so nice.

    OMG I want to try the topshop ones so bad that shade is perfect! I've tried the Revlon ones but can't stand the taste and smell. The Bourjois ones are by far my favourites I love Peach On The Beach.


  24. August 20, 2013 / 8:51 am

    Love the Stila one! My favourite at the moment is Soap & Glory Nudist 🙂

    The Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blushes are lovely. I have one in Cranberry, it's a pretty semi-sheer red that leaves a nice stain so you hardly need to reapply during the day.

  27. August 20, 2013 / 9:23 am

    My sister in law is an Avon rep and she gave me one of their Lip Crayons to try out. I can't tell you what colour it was as my daughter has pinched it and taken it to work with her but I found it a little too creamy to wear without a lip liner, as it bled slightly. With lip liner? Brilliant.

    Wish I could comment on the others but I can't as I haven't tried them!

    Definitely want to give the Topshop one a try now, that is for sure.

    Brilliant! There are so many lip crayons on the market at the moment and it's hard to know which to pick if you don't want to go wading around trying them all!

  29. August 20, 2013 / 9:50 am

    Really like the look of the first Clinique and Topshop ones. I've never used a lip crayon – I think I need to purchase a few come payday!
