Beauty Showdown #1 — Lip Crayons

IMG_0566-2

Over the past few weeks I have reviewed various ‘lip crayons’ that go by other names such as glossy sticks, chubby sticks, or the most common, balm stains.

The products I have reviewed are: NYC City Proof Twistable Intense Lip Color, Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains, Jordana Twist & Shine Moisturizing Balm Stains, E.L.F. Jumbo Lip Gloss Sticks, and Clinique Chubby Sticks Duo.

Here’s my ranking of the 5:

  1. Jordana Twist & Shine
  2. NYC Twistable Intense Lip Color
  3. Wet n Wild Megaslicks Balm Stains
  4. E.L.F. Jumbo Gloss Sticks
  5. Clinique Chubby Sticks Duo

It all comes down to preference when buying these lip crayons. If you are looking for something with moisture and a tint of color then go with NYC or Wet n Wild. If you want the full impact & lustrous color Jordana is your best bet. Not saying that the color pay off is horrible of NYC and Wet n Wild, but you have to really pack on the product to really see the full color and with Jordana you do not. To get the moisture feel but not much color go with the E.L.F. sticks or the Clinique chubby sticks.Again it’s all personal preference.

I will be doing another Beauty Showdown in the future on more lip crayons as I review them. Next up will feature Revlon’s Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm Stains, and Covergirl Jumbo Gloss Balms.
