Last year everyone hopped aboard the 'lip crayons' train, with Clinique taking the lead and everyone willingly following suit. Colour plus convenience and for the most part - comfort, it was a winning combination for many brands. Not totally convinced I'd be into the lip crayon thing, I opted to try out the most purse friendly version - MUA 'Power Pouts'.
Power Pouts are tinted lip balms, which deliver instant gloss and colour as well as instant relief from dry lips. The packaging looks and feels a bit naff, but for £3 who can moan? I quite like that the outer casing matches the colour inside, as it makes finding whichever shade you're after much easier in a crowded make-up bag.
'Irreplaceable' applied smoothly, gliding on without dragging on the lips or feeling waxy. These also have a minty fresh scent, which fades quickly.
The colour applies evenly, with enough pigmentation to actually be worth buying (aint tinted lip balms that show up clear a pain?)
