Hi Darlings, today’s post is going to be the review and swatch of the Honest Beauty Lip Crayon in the shades Honey and Marsala.
Back when I was in high school I was obsessed with the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lip crayons (who remembers them?) I had the shade Honey and it’s one of the few products I’ve completely run out of.
Needless to say, I had really high expectations for these and to be completely honest I haven’t realised they had these lip crayons in two formulas: a more balmy one (like the Revlon one) and a more matte one (which is this one).
Anyway, they come in eight shades and you can get them here for 12,99$
- Honey is a light peachy nude.
- Marsala is a medium rosy nude.
It comes in a really pretty box that has a “window” to see the colour, I think is very cute and clever.
It is shaped like a large pencil which I actually love, it’s quick and easy to use. The scent is sweet, it’s nice but nothing special.
The pencil shape makes it super easy to put on, it’s very precise and obviously, you don’t even need a lip liner. To be honest, I kind of forgotten how nice this shape is, I’ll definitely get more lip crayons in the future.
The formula is very creamy and smooth, it’s not patchy and it doesn’t settle into fine lines.
It is very interesting if you look at it, it’s completely matt and looks like velvet and on the lips is matt too but it’s definitely slippery like a regular lipstick. Actually, it feels like nothing.
It doesn’t tug the lips when you put it on like a regular matte lipstick would and it’s very comfortable to wear but it gets drier through the day.
It doesn’t last as long as a matt lipstick and it’s not transfer-proof, on me, it lasts around 4 hours.
- Colour: 7/10
- Longevity: 7/10
- Packaging: 8/10
- Application: 9/10
- Formula: 7/10
- Pigmentation: 8/10
My opinion is a bit torn on this one, on one side I really like the packaging and the application but I’m a bit on defence on the formula. It is ok, maybe a bit drying for my tastes but it’s not patchy and doesn’t settle in fine lines but I’m not into matte products lately and the shades are a bit off too. Honey is way too nude (even for me) and Marsala ages me 10 years. Maybe I’ll have to try the more balmy version since I actually love the crayon itself.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
