Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayons

Let me just say... this is the first time I've purchased a lip 'crayon' as I was always under the impression they would be a little bit drying (my lips neeeed hydration mannn, haha). Have I been missing something?  Anyway when I seen this little beauties in Boots I just needed to get my hands on them.  The vibrant colours really stood out and they looked good enough to eat!  I gave them a little swatch and wowww, my mind was made up.  So so pigmented and really creamy!
Here we have the latest of the crayon craze... the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayons.  There are 4 shades available; 
'01. Red Sunrise' (a deep pinky red), '02. Fuchsia Libra' (a vibrant berry pink), '03. Orange Punch' (a gorgeous deep orange) and '04. Peach on the Beach' (a subtle peach).

I opted for 'Peach on the Beach' and 'Orange Punch' as they just screamed my name from the shelf. (although to be honest I am on the verge of getting the other 2 to complete the collection).

In terms of formula, to me they feel like a lip balm, but with such vibrant colour.  In other words.. perfect!  It doesn't feel heavy or sticky on the lips and feels so moisturising!  However, one thing I would point out is the staying power of these is nowhere near the 10 hours that it states on the packaging. I'd give it 4 hours max before reapplying, although they are so pretty and easy to apply that's not a massive deal to me!

Overall, it's fair to say I really love these crayons and I'm probably gonna get the other 2 soon.  If you haven't checked these beauties out.. do so!  

Have you tried these yet?  
What other new summer products would you recommend? 



  1. these look gorgeous! we love you blog and have followed you on bloglovin'! mind checking our blog out? (: thankyou

  2. I'm still on the fence about this...if possible, they seem too creamy for my taste. I'm still loving my Revlon JBKBS for now! But I agree, the colors are gorgeous! Orange Punch and Red Sunset(?) are my personal faves! xx
