Chubby Lip Crayons

Traditionally I think of lip pencils as matte pencils used to line the lip (and occasionally fill it in). I personally can’t help but think of someone like Pamela Anderson and her over drawn lips. However, there’s a new kind of lip pencil which are a little chubbier, less matte and just a little more fun and easy.

It all started with Clinique Chubby sticks which are moisturising, glossy and with a very buildable colour. They later introduced the Chubby Stick intense which are more pigment but remain beautifully creamy! I swatched these below although I didn’t manage to swatch any other ones that I own.

 However nowadays the high-street is rarely far behind and a handful of inexpensive brands have brought out their own chubby lip pencils.

Left to right- Two Ton Tomato, Bountiful blush, Voluptuous Violet, Roomiest Rose, Plushest Punch and Chunkiest Chili

Of course Revlon released their Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains just right and they really do rival Clinque’s original Chubby Sticks. They are just as creamy, have a similar shade range and extremely similar packaging: remove the lids and you can barely tell the difference. These are stains so perfect if you want a colour to wear at the beach and there is a nice range of seven colours to chose from. Usually £7.99 but currently on offer for £5.99

 A more pigmented chubby pencil are Seventeen Lip Crayons, I love the playful packaging on them but they are slightly stickier than the originals. However the colour range is more impressive, fun and young. There are five shades to chose from and you can achieve either a light wash or quite easily build the colour to be quite intense. They retail for a very affordable £4.99

My current favourite drugstore brand at the moment is Bourjois and they have released Color Boost Lipsticks  which unlike the other ones I have spoken about have an SPF 15 making them almost a summer essential! They are beautifully pigment but still shiny and creamy. There are four colours to chose from and retail for £7.99.

The Models Own Colour Lip Stix are the least shiny out of my whole collection which I like more for the autumn/winter. They are also the ones that smell the best as they smell simply delicious! There is a nice range of eight and retail for just £5.

I also have a lovely Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush which is pigmented and moisturising but with limited colour choice with only two shades and more expensive than the others I have spoken about at £12

The priciest choice of all is the Pur Mineral Lip Gloss Stick which are sadly not my favourite as I find them to be quite greasy leaving an uneven colour. There is a choice of four and retail for £16.

My personal favourite is the No7 High Shine Lip Crayon in Delicate Pink as it is the perfect pretty pink. Its a lovely balmy consistency and I find it to be the most ‘young’ colour as most of the other shades are dark ‘grown-up’ colours. The range is made up of 5 shades available and retailing for £9

    I bought two MUA Power Pouts today and they are absolutely amazing for £3! I'd say the perfect dupe for Clinique and Bourjois 🙂 x

    OMG I have quite a selection of lip crayons too. I think they are such an easy go to lip. I like that so many brands have released their version now & you can get some amazing ones on the high street.
    The bourjois ones are fab and I have tried a couple of good ones from e.l.f. I want to try the No7 ones as they look lovely.
