Lancome Juicy Crayon


Every few years Lancome put out a Juicy Crayon. It's a lip gloss in pencil form. I know that sounds strange, but it works. It has the staying power of a lip pencil with the shine of a gloss. The colour pigment is halfway between a gloss and a lipstick. If you see them, get one! They usually appear around christmas as a limited edition release. There are still some floating around on the net, so if you really want one they aren't difficult to track down.

I absolutely love these crayons. I apply mine over lip balm in the morning and at lunchtime I still have a stain of colour, which is pretty amazing considering how glossy they are. They also have a lovely fragrance. I've tried glossy lipsticks (which I love), but find that the lasting power isn't very good, whereas the lasting power of Juicy Crayons is great. It's pretty rare that a lip product lasts until lunchtime on me.

Would I buy it again? Yes, I get one every time they are released.

  3. Harri, I think they were around $35 (AUD), but I've seen them here: http://www.skincaredirect.com.au/itemDetail.aspx?ProdId=76095&utm_source=getprice&utm_medium=cpc for $23.50.

    Banapple, I wish we had Sephora here!
