Bourjois Paris Colour Boost Lip Crayon

Hey everyone! Hope you are well and having a good week in the sunshine. We have finally found out what the royal baby is called! Prince George Alexander Louis Cambridge. How cute is that?! I thought they might go with George and I am really pleased they did, from the pictures we have seen, I think it suits him. All together now, 'Awwww'. Anyway enough of the baby talk, todays post is on Bourjois' new lip crayons.

Now I purchased the Clinique chubby sticks about a year ago and even though I do go back to it every so often, its not a wow product and I never really tried lip crayons again. Until I saw Bourjois' offering and I knew I had to try one. They have gone for really nice summer shades and all of them are gorgeous! I finally settled on Orange Punch which is meant to be orange but to me its more of a pinkish shade. Its really pretty though and I am not entirely sure the swatch does it justice.

The formula of these lip crayons are lovely and creamy and glide onto my lips easily. They are super hydrating and quite glossy. Perfect for those of you with quite dry lips from the summer sun. The thing I also really like about this crayon is the fact that the colour isn't super pigmented like a lipstick or anything. Its quite sheer so its ideal for when I am at work or wanting something a little more subtle. The staying power of these was pretty good considering it is pretty sheer, it lasted for a couple of hours before I felt like I needed to top it up. Re applying is super easy too as its almost like applying a lip balm.

Overall I am really impressed with this lip crayon and really want to get my mitts on the other three shades available. They cost just £7.99 and you can still pick them up at Boots. :)

Have any of you tried this product? What did you think?
