A bold lip is a major part of my signature beauty look, but I’m not a fan of lip liners. They’re tricky to use, hard to color match, and when it comes to lipsticks, I’m super picky about moisture and color bleeding.
While I have a great collection of bold lip stains, I’ve been searching for a product that combines the benefits of lip liner and lipstick in one, and I’m excited to share that I finally found it in a lip crayon! Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons provide creamy, full-coverage matte lip color, infused with Shea butter, Kendi Oil and Jojoba Oil, leaving my lips hydrated and moisturized- the perfect solution to my despise for lip liners and dry lipsticks!
For anyone who’s new to lip color, lip crayons are a perfect starting point. They’re super easy to use and best of all, you don’t have to worry about carrying a lip liner and a lipstick in your bag. (I gifted lip crayons in Niagara Overlook and Sedona Sands to my thirteen year old cousin as a back to school gift after hearing how much she wanted to try lipstick, and she loves them)! The full collection has great shades for any occasion- from the office, at school and after hours.
Here’s how to get a perfect pout in 5 simple steps:
STEP 1 | Outline lips with lip crayon, starting from cupid’s bow to each end on top lip, and corner to corner on bottom. (I used Napa Vineyard, perfect for Fall)!
STEP 2 | Blend the liner onto your lips using a lip or eyeliner brush- either one works! (My current fave brushes are from EcoTools. (The brand makes all of their brushes with bamboo handles, recycled aluminum and they’re animal cruelty free).
STEP 3 | Fill in lips with lip crayon, using back and forth strokes.
STEP 4 | Fold a tissue in half and blot color onto tissue.
STEP 5 | Apply another layer of lip color to your lips using a lip or eyeliner brush.
