Hi everyone! Today's review is going to be on the Banila co. The Kissest Lip Crayon. This is the first product that I've tried from Banila co. and also the first lip crayon that I've used! There are 5 different shades in this range of lip crayons and the one I have is in 05 Reds.
Thankfully this lip crayon can be twisted up and down unlike the Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bars which can't be twisted down. This lip crayon smells like chrysanthemum tea... It smells exactly like the chrysanthemum tea in the yellow packet from Yeo's (I think that's the brand lolol). The smell isn't bad but I was pleasantly surprised because I've never smelled any lip product with this scent 'cause usually lip products smelly fruity or sweet.
This lip crayon isn't crazily pigmented and it also doesn't apply very sheer. It lies somewhere in between. If you want a bolder lip look, you could build up the layers and vice versa. The finish of this lip crayon is quite glossy. I didn't expect that because the saleslady at the store told me it was gonna be matte ~_~ but that's okay.
One bad thing about this lip crayon is that it comes off completely after eating or drinking. After eating, all the colour just comes off. It doesn't leave any stain or tint like some other lip products do so, that's quite sad T_T It does last quite a long time if you don't eat/drink/lick your lips too much.
On the bright side, this lip crayon doesn't dry out my lips. It doesn't moisturize my lips either but it does feel quite comfortable on the lips because of the glossy texture.
- Nice smell
- Doesn't dry out lips
- Easy to apply
- Feels comfortable on lips
- Doesn't last if you eat or drink
- Not very pigmented
Overall, this lip crayon is just okay (I really like the smell though xD) I wouldn't buy this again because I can't get it anywhere here LOL! I really want to try the Etude House Vivid Pop Sticks -I think that's what they're called but I don't see them on sale at the store either LOL.
Please leave some recommendations of any lip crayons which are good :D Thanks so much for reading!
