Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayons

Every week there is a new release on the high street and- as someone who owns enough lip products as it is- I tend to steer clear of the lipstick aisles when I can. This being said, I am a sucker for a lip crayo,n especially after I became smitten with the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils last Summer. The new lip products on the scene at the moment are the Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayons*; six lip pencils that come in array of shades to suit all seasons. 

All six hues are gorgeous from the first swatch, but it was when I put them on my lips that I started to see the difference in staying power and pigmentation in the varying shades. 

Colossal Coral was the shade I was initially drawn to, as in the Summer I like to opt for a lightweight coral lipstick that gives of a subtle wash of colour and isn't too overpowering. This offering is one of my favourites from the collection, closely followed by Raving Rouge; a strong  satin true red that is unlike anything in my stash. 

Fully Fuchsia- an intense hot pink- is a shade I wouldn't necessarily pick up myself as I don't find I reach for vivid lipsticks very often. However Berry Burst, a deep mauve hue, is going to be one that I will get out once Autumn comes as it's easy to apply and has even coverage. 

For me, Notorious Nude and Power Pinks are the two offerings in the collection that I was the most excited for, but when it came down to the application they didn't show up on my lips. However, If you have lighter lips than I do then Notorious Nude would be the perfect Summer nude as its creamy in texture, light on the lips and has the perfect balance of both pink and brown undertones. 

With a lightweight formula and satin finish, these lipsticks can be sheered out or can be built up to create a stronger colour. When applied, the minty scent doesn't linger for very long and if you're not used to plumping, tingly formulas, then this would be a great starting point as the feeling only lasts a few minutes. 

Have you tried the Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayons?
