Hey guys long time no blog.
I've been dealing with influenza the past week...well, more like going on ten days now, and I'm feeling well enough to try and post again.
While I've been sick and miserable, I was able to get my first complimentary Vox Box from Influenster,
and in it were these new
Right off the bat, I was happy about the shades that I had received.
I'll get into the swatches of these later on because I first want to talk about this formula, and how (if) it differs from the typical lip crayon.
Marc Jacobs claims that these lip crayons are supposed to act like a liquid lipstick in crayon form, and that they are supposed to last for up to 16 hours of wear time.
That's a long time! lol
They also retail for $26 on the MJ website and Sephora.
The application process was easy.
The colors were very pigmented and creamy.
The crayon just seemed to glide onto my lips without clinging to any dry patches or settling into fine lines.
Unlike a liquid lipstick, these did transfer when I went to blot them with a tissue, and seemed to wipe off quite easily, which is something I was concerned about in the first place, because I find that lip crayons tend to do that.
I haven't worn them enough at this point to see how they fade throughout the day, so I don't want to judge too harshly just yet.
I want to give them a fair chance before I make my verdict.
Anyways, here are the swatches of how they apply. The one on the left is "Send Nudes"
and to the right is "Flaming-oh."
As you can see they are quite pigmented and creamy.
As a matter of fact, they are so creamy that the tips of both of my pencils broke off when I swatched them, so be sure to have a
very gentle hand when applying.
This is what they look like when rubbing over them a few times.
As you can see, they don't come off completely,
so I feel like they will wear more like a stain.
I had to scrub with soapy water to completely wash them off.
What do you guys think about them? Is it something that you feel would be a good investment, or do you prefer to stick to traditional lipsticks?
I'd love to know your thoughts!
