The Organic Lipstick Crayon I Use 3 Different Ways

When Inika's Lipstick Crayon landed on my desk, I wasn’t sure how I felt about what appeared to be just a giant, inconveniently-sized lip liner - BUT I was instantly drawn to the colour (Deep Plum, a personal favourite). Being new at a beauty company, I’m pretty much willing to try anything and everything.

Upon first application I knew I was onto something good, and my first impressions were backed by our Beauty Editor who'd also been trialing the Lipstick Crayon over the weekend. It's without a doubt the creamiest, easiest to apply lip crayon with the most amazing colour pay off that ever did touch my Cupid's bow.

Despite my initial reaction to the chunky liner, once I discovered that is was indeed so much more than your run-of-the-mill lip pencil, it all made sense. Not only are you able to use this product for much more than a tint on your lips, but it is the perfect handbag companion.

Thanks to its compact size, it can be added to any handbag without taking up precious space, it's quick and easy to apply and you don't even need to be wearing a full face to reap its benefits. I’ve used this product to breathe life back into my face on my makeup free days or to transition my look from day to night.

How I Make The Most Out Of It:

It wasn't long before I experimented using INIKA Certified Organic Lipstick Crayon on my cheeks and eyelids. It's no surprise that the payoff was nothing short of amazing, as I'd experience on my lips.

Given that the shade range is within blushy, pink tones, they work seamlessly as a blush and eyeshadow, too. The blendable formula makes it easy to add a flush of subtle colour to your cheekbones and add dimension to your lids, whilst bringing out the natural tone of your lips. *Tick, Tick, Tick*

1. Apply your chosen shade of Inika's Lipstick Crayon directly onto your lips - there's no need for both a lip liner and lipstick as this kills two birds with one stone, and allows you to create both a diffused tint or a sharp, defined lip line.

2. Warm the crayon on the back of your hand and either use your fingers to transfer the colour onto the apples of your cheeks (my recommendation) or draw directly onto your cheeks in soft, circular motions and blend out with your finger tips.

3. Draw across your lash line of your lid to add dimension or simply blend out for an overall shadow

My Final Thoughts:

If you're the fuss-free kind of make-up lover, interested in certified organic products, or you're always on the lookout for a new lip product like me, then INIKA Certified Organic Lipstick Crayon might be for you. Not only is it a make-up bag essential with its multiple uses & handy compact size but the formula is honestly like wearing a highly pigmented lip balm.
