I’ve mentioned these a couple times across various posts, but I realised I had never actually given them a full on review!? These are the No.7 High Shine Lip Crayons, and let me tell you, I have a lot of love for these!
At £9 a pop they’re at the higher end of the drugstore, but still super affordable.I got mine as part of a set last year (it was £15 for the 4 of them), so they were a right bargain!
They are super easy to apply, super glossy, balmy and unbelievably comfortable. They’re not kiss proof (which is a shame) and due to their balmy texture, they’re not the longest lasting. But, because of how fool proof they are to apply, I really don’t care. Plus, they sort of fade, rather than go patchy or wear away in the middle of your mouth – I really hate that!
Because they’re a fairly sheer formula, they’re a great way to transition into wearing a more bold lip. When I first started wearing makeup I was terrified of lipsticks like Kate Moss 107, and these really helped me to begin to gravitate away from nudes… 24/7.
The four shades I have are Tickle (a vibrant orange), Delicate Pink (as you’d expect a beautiful pink colour, which is deeper than you’d expect), Berry (a wine/berry colour, so perfect for Autumn and Winter) and Petal (your classic pink shade).
Have you tried these? If so, what were your thoughts?
