Pucker up for fall with these super nourishing new lip crayons that work both as a liner and an all over lip color. Here’s the doB scribble smack down on what’s trending now.
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm (Really?)
This amazing lip balm is loaded with mango and Shea butter, just what dry winter-cracked lips need to bring out the softer side. We noticed they have fewer color options than Nars but a shine like the top of the Chrysler building. One swipe of these and you’ll be willing to take it over the Matte any day. A twist up sharpener option adds points for convenience and one swipe delivers the perfect punch up for day or night coverage. Color picks and price: Woppin Watermelon was our favorite with Richer Raisin a close second. In terms of price, these give us the most bang for our doB buck at $15.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils and Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils
Nars carries a much wider array of color options with spectacular shine in an innovative light new formula. They offer Velvet Matte Lip Pencils and Velvet Gloss Lip Pencils in six inspiring new shades. The rich formula uses vitamins A & E to keep our lips luscious and hydrated all day long. They have a stronger plastic smell that evaporates quickly and also lose big points for requiring an additional sharpener. Overall, just not as convenient to go from day to night. Color picks and price: New Lover, a strawberry just kissed gold-flecked glow was inspired and fresh. Happy Days was sheer enough to let your own color shine through and was a fresh pink coral that reminds of simpler days when Joanie still loved Chachi. In the Velvet Matte, try Dragon Girl to bring out the bling. Price point comes in higher at $24 without the sharpener.
Well, we’ve all heard the insane statistics that women will eat between four to eight pounds of lipstick in a lifetime. How many calories is that? Another option, an all-natural cosmetics line by Susanne Langmuir, founder of Bite Beauty. She set out to make-up a high-end collection of High Pigment Matte Pencils using organic fruit juice concentrate for sweetness, scent and resveratrol for its antioxidant benefits. Color picks and price: Try Bouquet, a light and airy peachy pink or the Pomegranate, a rich lustrous red. Also, a commitment in terms of price at $24 without a sharpener. This line is available at Sephora.
So this fall take a bite out of beauty with lip crayons, it’s far from yesterday’s Crayola.
