I don’t know what my deal is with lip crayons, but I just really love them. I find lip crayons to be that happy medium between a lipstick and a tinted balm where you still get good color payoff without it being too sheer, but you don’t have to stress about a super precise application like you do with a lipstick. Do the Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Luminous Lip Crayons give me the color payoff I want in a lip crayon, though?
YUP. And to top it off, they’re creamy, super hydrating (like, “I just had lip balm on” feels) and full of ingredients (many of which are certified organic, as well) that are actually good for you. In fact, a quick ingredient analysis through CosDNA doesn’t pull up any of the ingredients as being rated higher than a 2 on the hazard scale, so that’s pretty amazing (and also hard to come by when it comes to makeup)!
I also am in LOVE with the color selection of the Juice Beauty PHYTO-PIGMENTS Luminous Lip Crayons. While it’s not the most extensive with 8 different shades, every single shade is beautiful and definitely something I would (and will!) wear with a variety of different makeup looks. I generally don’t go too dark with my lip colors, so this color selection is a dream for me.

Being that the consistency of these is very similar to a balm, the wear time isn’t the best. They pretty easily fade away with eating and drinking, but I’m totally okay with that because they’re so easy to reapply and I love how much extra hydration each application gives my lips. They retail for $22 each, but I think that the quality of the ingredients makes them worth every penny!
Are you a lip crayon lover like myself?
