If you’re looking for the greatest lip crayons, you’ll find just as many possibilities as you would with lipstick. Lip crayons come in a variety of shapes and sizes—thin and pointed, broad and fat, sheer and balm-like, it goes on. So choosing the appropriate one for you will ultimately depend on your intended effect. 

We know that the first thing that comes to mind when mentioning lip crayons are the mini-sized looking Crayola. But little did you know, lip crayons are really enticing. An entire generation of women who believed lipstick was out of date are now purchasing this form of lip colour in quantity and wearing it on a regular basis. Don’t believe me? Go ahead, scroll down all the way to TikTok and you’ll find just an enormous amount of lip crayons suggestions. 

Ooh, we here at Beauty Insider diving head first into this trend. This is one of the old-school beauty trends that we’ve been waiting for to come back. And now, it looks like lip crayons are slowly making its way back to your neighbourhood.

The Hype Of Lip Crayons

Clinique was one of the first brands to advocate the lip crayon. “We expected that when we released our Chubby Sticks in 2011, its packaging and wearability would appeal to younger consumers,” says Clinique president Lynne Greene. “However, women of all ages are buying them in large quantities, even some who never used to wear bright colours—or any colour—on their lips.” 

Makeup artist Jillian Dempsey attributes the crayons’ appeal to their ease of use and sheer sheer, not to mention how soft and glide they feel on your lips: “They offer the proper amount of colour, they hydrate, and you can apply them without a mirror in the back of a cab’’. Giving that Devil wears Prada vibes. 

Why Choose Beauty Crayons? 

Beauty crayons are not new, but they are gaining popularity. Thanks to Gen Z on TikTok. Beauty crayons may appear to be just an unexpected twist, yet they are really efficient operators. Choose a colour that can be scribbled across your lids, lips, and cheeks, blended with your fingertips, then topped up with mascara to get the show started. And tadaa, you’re done. 

Byredo debuted their core Colour Sticks when it introduced its upbeat cosmetics range. “The crayons are designed to be multipurpose.  We work on eyes, lips, cheeks, brows, wherever,” makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, who co-created the brand, added. She demonstrated them with a stunning colour-clash eye that she created in roughly 12 seconds using only her fingertips.

MILK Makeup also debuted its new Colour Chalks, as well as some 90s reminiscence. The package resembles a cross between Love Hearts’ Candy Lipsticks and Lip Smackers’ Lip Balm, with the primary distinction being the colour. To reduce waste, it is wrapped in an eco-friendly peel-off wrapper. The solid colour sticks allow for experimentation, adaptability, and, most importantly, convenience. 

The OG brands like Bobbi Brown, Clinique, and NARS have all experimented with crayons. For years, Bobbi Brown’s Longwear Cream Eyeshadow Sticks have provided exquisite swipe-on eye colour. Clinique’s Chubby Sticks include contour, blush, and lip balm, while NARS’ thick Lip Pencils make drawing on a statement a breeze. You may also blend textures depending on your mood, since each offers velvety matte, shimmery, or fresh balmy finishes.

Lip Crayons Are Easy To Use

They embody everything you like about gloss. I’d recommend a sheer crayon to anyone who loves gloss. The lovely sheen they leave behind is far preferable than a sticky coating of goopy gloss. Sure, we appreciate precise, flawlessly placed lipstick, but there’s no denying that the casual, slapdash attitude of a crayon looks effortlessly great. They maintain the mouth contour soft and natural-looking. That feels more contemporary than lipstick or gloss.

But the best thing? A sharpening is not required. When the tip wears off, just twist the bottom to achieve the desired rounded, smudgy finish. A sharp point is contrary to their allure. They’re the lip equivalent of BB creams.
