What Has Been on My Lips

Good arvo to those of you in Aussie land

So I have been buying up and trying some new lip products so I figured I should share and let you know my thoughts. I am currently in between loving lip glosses and lipsticks, so the perfect fit would be chubby sticks. Not quite lipstick as they are typically sheerer but also provide some glossiness to lips. I also purchased a new lip balm which I am a bit undecided about.

Drum roll please...

So I am a little bit ashamed to say that I mainly know of this lipbalm thanks to their promoting using the Kardashian family. However I did need a new lipbalm and I liked the idea of not having to use my fingers, which is what I do with my favourite paw paw ointment by Nude by Nature. I bought this off eBay for $6.46, however that listing has ended and been relisted with a new price of $7.99. For the price, this product is alright. It does make my lips feel better and moisturised, however it does nit actually sink in and rather just sits on top of the lips. So my lips feel dry about a half hour later. However it is very handy and great for on the go use when you dont want to get sticky hands. I would probably not repurchase though and just stick with paw paw.

These lip crayons are fanastic, they add a sheer flush of colour to my lips, feel mosturising, and have a lasting power of a few hours but are easy enough to top up without needing a mirror. So i bought these from my local kmart in.a pack for $14.75, I mainly wanted the red and brown coloured crayons but I could not find them sold separately, but for about $4.90 a piece I don't mind buying all 3.

These are wind up and a great thing to keep in your handbag when you just want a little bit of colour in your life.

Yet another wind up lip crayon, I just love this colour, it gives my lips a slightly darker nude lip with glittery sparkles, which will not be loved by all, but I think it adds another dimension to the colour. This formula I don't find as moisturising as the Face of Australia ones, but I just prep with balm beforehand. This does have a better lasting power than the other crayons however, lasting 4-5 hours without eating or drinking. The picture however doesn't really give the glitter factor any justice.
