Ladies it is time to temporarily put your lipstick aside because the only thing to be wearing on your lips this springtime is the lip stain or the lip stick pencil.
The ever faithful lipstick will not be gone forever and will remain firmly in our hearts, but this Spring it is time to try something new. Lip crayons, stains or lipstick pencils may all have different names but in principal they are the same. A glossy crayon which glides onto the lips leaving a shine lacquered finish.
The difference is they make for much lighter wearing in hotter months and due to the stain like texture that sinks slightly into your lips as opposed to sitting on top of them you won’t be popping to the powder room every five minute to reapply.
They offer versatility as they can be worn in a number of different ways to achieve different looks. For that everyday work affair simply apply a thin natural looking layer and once you’re off the clock and ready for some night time escapades apply more layers for a more dramatic effect and you could even pop some clear lipgloss on top for extra sheen.
We particularly love Barry M’s new Lip Lacquer Crayon. It is steal at £4.95 and comes in five glamourous shades. The smooth and silky application provides comfort for the lips and the bright and bold choice of colours will give you the perfect pout.
You might remember us recently raving about the brand Bloom. Well they also have a fabulous lip stain pencil which gives semi permanent colour to leave your lips looking polished. Bloom also say that it is totally kiss proof! Perfect for Valentines day. You can pick yours up today from Superdrug.
