As someone perpetually dealing with a time crunch EVERY MORNING (sigh), makeup in crayon form is now my beauty BFF. Drawing on your face is just that much easier when you don’t have to contend with a brush, ya know?
My latest loves are these twist up matte crayon lippies by Laura Mercier. The new Petal Soft Lipstick Crayons offer sheer, easy-to-apply color, so I don’t have to worry about precisely drawing a crisp edge. (Side note: you can easily build up the opacity if you want more intensity, FYI.)
I’ve been doing a layer or two for a casual, effortless summery lip look, but I can see these working year round.
The formula feels lightweight and smooth on my lips, and I like that its unscented and unflavored. Comfy!
I’ve been rollin’ with Augustine, the coral shade, all week, and when I wear it on video calls, I look brighter, and dare I say, less cranky? LOL!
There are 20 shades to choose from, and each is $28 for a 0.06-oz tube.
