I’ve been a huge fan of butter LONDON’s lip products ever since we tried their Moisture Matte lipstick. Add in the fact that lip crayons are my favourite way wear lipstick and I literally couldn’t wait to try the Lippy Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons. Right out of the gate I fell in love with these crayons. The pigmentation is insane, the staying power is great and they’re so comfortable to wear. I love that they’re glossy and not matte like so many crayons but you get the same wear time, although the shine does wear off. I got to try Primrose Hill Picnic (Opaque Tropical Pink Creme), Trout Pout (Opaque Light Coral Creme) and Toff (Opaque Red Grape Creme). Trout Pout is going to be my daily wear shade and I love layering Primrose Hill Picnic over Toff.
Unlike a lot of crayons, these aren’t a twist up. They have a sharpener built right into the cap. But I hadn’t had a chance to use it until right after I took the photo above, after which I dropped Toff in the middle of doing a swatch. The tip broke right off and the sharpener broke off the cap entirely. Luckily, I had the others to sharpen Toff, but it didn’t sharpen smoothly at all.
You can see the difference in the swatches. So if you’re going to use these crayons, you might want to pre-sharpen before you take it out with you, on the off chance that you have an accident like I did.
Does the broken sharpener detract from my love for the Bloody Brilliant Lip Crayons? Not even a little. These crayons are so smooth and easy to use. Maybe try a twist up next time though.
