Gotta Love The Lip Crayon---Hot New Trend For Sheer Color
Hot and bothered....But not in a good way. We're talking about the summer weather and the challenge to keep makeup fresh and in the moment.
Today, it's going to hit 87 degrees here. A bit too HOT for our taste, but we still follow our daily makeup routine. Except this time, we're going to reach for a box of pretty colored crayons.
Well, sort of.
The hot trend right now----lip crayons! You know, those fat pencils everyone can manuever. And if you hate that heavy lipstick look during those hot spring/summer days, then you should pick up a lip crayon. You will like what you see----a sheer hint of color in a moisturizing base.
Lip crayons are different than the typical lip gloss---too sticky or the matte lip stain---too dry. With a big, fat crayon, you get a light wash of color. If you apply a few more coats, you get more of a dramatic look.
And there are tons to choose from:
1. Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm ($15, at clinique.com). In yum-yum shades like, Woppin' Watermelon.
2. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($24, at narscosmetics.com). In creamy, nourishing shades.
3. Hard Candy Visibly Wet Shockingly Glossy Lip Pencil ($6, at Walmart stores).
