left- Bourjois, Right- Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm in Rendezvous
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon is the latest offering on the burgeoning lip crayon market. I like lip crayons for their convenience, colour and instant moisturisation. I have Bourjois Lip Color Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise and this does a good job at all of these.
Red Sunrise is a fresh red-pink that really reminds me of the darker colour in a Tequila Sunrise, I think that makes it the perfect summer colour. There is a slightly fruity smell to this lip crayon, but nothing like Revlon Just Bitten Lip Balm which has an artificial mint smell. I don’t think Bourjois’ lip crayon is as good as Revlon’s. Both give good colour, a semi-opaque pigmentation that can easily be built up. Revlon’s lasts much longer on my lips though. Bourjois does that weird thing where you’re left with colour around the outer lips but nothing central, wtf.
Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Red Sunrise does feel nice on the lips and definitely gives lasting moisture. It’s a shame the colour doesn’t last brilliantly on the lips.
Have you tried it? What do you make of it?
