Avon Lip Crayon: A Chubby Stick Dupe?

Ever since the launch of Clinique’s Chubby Stick, the beauty industry seems to have found a new product to copy and re-create. We’ve had Revlon, Bourjois and now Avon dipping their toes into the lip-in-a-stick format. With the launch of their new Lip Crayons, Avon are attempting to channel the trend while bringing their own twist to the product format – a more pigmented and vibrant shade, that provides a precise and long-lasting result.

Launching in August and available in six shades, the Lip Crayons are more like a lipstick than the traditional lipbalm-eque formula of the Chubby Stick. Each crayon provides an intense colour result that glides onto lips with ease and stays put for a pretty long time. Containing slightly shimmering pigments, the colours aren’t for the feint-hearted – the shimmer also makes the formula feel slightly gritty on the lip, rather than super smooth and moisturising. As far as I can tell, there are no hydrating properties to these whatsoever, focusing predominantly on the colour result rather than any additional benefits. If you’re a fan of lipsticks then you’ll no doubt fall in lust with these, but they also provide a really easy application method for those of you a little scared to apply a chunky bullet. I would have liked to have felt more comfort on the lip, as well as a few lighter shades for daytime, but these are a good first try at a product that’s caused more buzz than Superman.

The Lip Crayons are launching this August priced £7.50 each.

    These look nice but I'm not sure about the amount of shimmer in them…..does it translate onto the lips? X

    There is a slight shimmer on the lips, but it kind of blends in so it's not OTT. It's definitely wearable and daytime appropriate!
