I'm always looking for High Street alternatives to some of my favourite slightly higher end products and that's exactly what I've found here. If like me, you're always lusting after the NARS satin lip pencils but don't really want to fork out £20 a pop, you must take a trip to your local drugstore to check out these fantastic brand new lip crayons from Sleek.
I'm a big fan of lips crayons, mainly for the fact that they're precise enough to line your lips but equally thick enough to quickly apply colour all over. At just £5.49 (basically a quarter of the price of the NARS lip pencils), you really can afford to try more than one. Even better if there's a 3 for 2 deal, which there almost always is at some stage in either Boots or Superdrug. Despite the price, the quality really is much higher than you would expect to get for just over £5. And in addition to what NARS have to offer up, these also work at plumping your lips whilst adding a slick of colour to your lips at the same time.
There is a noticeable tingle, one that lasts for around 15 minutes each time you apply but it's not like some of the other lip plumping products on the market that make your lips feel like they've been stung by nettles or something along those lines.
The range of shades are all incredibly wearable and ones that would work well for a broad range of skin tones and colours too. I also really adore the satin finish of these Power Plump lip crayons*.
Additionally, if you feel like trying one or even a couple of these lip crayons, Boots currently have an introductory offer on where they're just £4.49 each (instead of £5.49) and they're also on 3 for 2! Now that's the kind of offer that's quite honestly too good to miss. The introductory offer is on until next Wednesday, the 3rd of August.
What do you think of these lip crayons? Are you a fan of lip plumping products? Can you handle the stinging or tingling feeling that many of these products have? Will you be taking advantage of the introductory offer? And which shade is your favourite?
