Bought & Thought
The first of my new 'Bought & Thought' posts featuring something I've purchased recently alongside an inspiring or encouraging quote to perk us up. I've been using this Clarins Lip Balm Crayon in My Pink for a couple of months now and didn't think anything could rival my beloved Instant Light, Natural Lip Perfector. However this just might. It's a non-sticky crayon that moisturises like a balm but has a little sheen and colour (depending on which shade you get). It's obviously not as glossy looking or feeling as the tube stuff, so if gloss isn't your thing, actually you may prefer this one. It's one of those products you can apply in the dark and I love the no mess, twist up application. I thought the name of this shade was a little strange, until I realised this is the one colour in the collection, that actually reacts to the pH of your lips to create a unique shade for you. Hence 'my', duh! This is why when I've swatched it (full haul post coming next week), it looked colourless, yet is actually quite pink at times on my lips. It's already one of those products that I feel I need multiples of, to leave all over the house, in bags etc, so I'm never without it! Have you tried this or any other brand 'lip crayons'?
