When Clinique first launched their Chubby Sticks, little did we know how much of a makeup revolution they were creating. A few years later and every brand has their own version of chunky lip crayons, offering everything from a delicate tint in balm format to a full on powerful punch of colour. Although I love a shiny finish and a comfortable balm texture, I’m currently loving these Matte Balm ColourBurst crayons from Revlon. Their soft-touch exterior gives a hint of what’s beneath the lid, which is a super soft and wearable lipstick with a touch of added moisture. Much more pigmented and colour rich than I anticipated, these handy crayons are great for adding a touch of colour to lips – especially when you’re on the go.
Available in ten different colours and coming in significantly cheaper (£7.99) than their Chubby Stick counterparts, the ColourBurst Matte Balms make wearing colour a little bit more attainable for those worried about a super powerful finish. The matte result ensures a more subtle finish, as well as enabling you to still get away with a touch of highlighter and shimmer around the eyes. These two shades (Complex and Elusive) are great for pale skin tones, especially when a touch of bronzer or colour is added to the cheeks. They’re super smooth to apply, can be built up for a more powerful result and offer much more product than a traditional lipstick format. Chubby Stick who?
The ColorBurst Matte Lip Crayons are available in ten colours, priced £7.99.
