Review: Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon

I’ve liked the idea of the chunky crayons for both the lips and the eyes since Clinique launched the Chubby Sticks a couple of years ago. Until a few months ago it was Revlon that had introduced a cheaper version of these Crayons but i didn’t really get on with these, mainly, I think due to the very strong smell of mint that made me feel slightly sick. After reading a couple of reviews that really praised Bourjois contribution to the trend I just had to go and pick one up and try it myself.

I got the colour Fuchsia Libre as I was feeling quite daring that day. I always buy fun colours to wear on the lips but, quite frankly, I never have the balls to use them as they tend to just look a bit weird on me. I’m pretty sure it’s the hate I have for my teeth that makes me not want to draw attention to my lips but I thought screw it. I don’t regret it.  The consistency is much the same of the Clinique Chubby Sticks in the the way that it is so moisturising and I would assume the colour pay off would be similar to the Cubby Stick Intense range (I haven’t tried these but the original ones don’t have much colour at all).

If you’re more a fan of bold colour this may be a bit too sheer for you but for me it’s the perfect in between. The colour doesn’t last an amazing amount of time, about 3 hours, but it’s so easy to apply without a mirror that you can easily top it up. Best of all it’s not drying in the slightest. These are £7.99, so a bit on the pricier range of the high street brands but I think I might be treating myself to a couple more as they’re so easy to wear. You can pick these up from Boots and Superdrug.

Have you tried these? What are your favourite lip crayons?

Thanks for reading 🙂

    • The colour payoff is a lot better from Bourjois compared to the original Chubby Sticks but I haven’t tried the Chubby Stick Intense range. If you’re looking to save money definitely go for the Bourjois. 🙂
