Stick It To Me, Baby

I’ve been wondering, what is the huge fascination of lip crayons, jumbo lip pencils, chubby sticks or whatever they are called? If you think about it, what do these offer that your regular lipstick don’t?

– They both come in a variety of shades and finishes

– They can be formulated as sheer stains to highly pigmented products

– Both products usually twist up and have a lid

– Both are found in high end and drug-stores brands

Either of them seem pretty comparable. However, lip crayons are usually bulkier than lipsticks.

So what’s with all the hype?
I don’t truly know why, but I prefer these lip crayons too.
It might be due to its playful shape that resembles the crayons we use to play with in kindergarten, there’s just something about lip crayons that comes across more casual and youthful than the classic lipstick.

What are your thoughts? Are you a fan of the jumbo lip crayons, or do you prefer to pretty up your lips with the traditional lipstick?
