If you’ve been a regular reader of my challenge, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of these colour balm crayons from Maybelline and have really liked all the shades I’ve tried so far.
Today’s shade is a rich red shade, and although it’s a balm, it has the pigment of any good red lipstick but with all the moisturising qualities of a really good lip balm. And that’s the main reason why I just love these so much!
The formula is thick when you apply it but very blendable, and because you get such a good colour pay off, you really don’t need to apply much at all. It gives the same dramatic pop as some of my favourite red lippies, and though the shade itself maybe just slightly cool-toned for me, I really was so impressed by it.
The fact that it’s a lip crayon makes it very easy to just apply and go, and it kept my lips feeling soft and hydrated all day. It’s quite a bold shade so I don’t think it will be to everyone’s taste, but I do love a bold lip every now and then.
