Topshop Makeup | Lipstick Crayons/Pencils

                  Top to bottom: Powder Room, Clueless, Hedonist
Topshop Lipstick Crayons £7*

Next up in the Topshop Makeup "series", is the Lipstick Crayons/Pencils or however else you'd like to name them. I don't see these talked about as much as the actual lipsticks, and I guess that could be because lipsticks are more likely to be favoured over them. Unlike the lipsticks in the Topshop makeup range, these offer a matte finish. I enjoy applying these, as the longer, slimmer packaging allows you to get more precision, almost like you are colouring in your lips with a chubby pencil. They are long lasting and have great pigmentation. If you prefer to wear matte colours on your lips as opposed to something a little more moisturising or frosty, these will be perfect for you. I don't often opt for a matte lip as I much prefer something a little more moisturising on my lips as they are quite dry but sometimes matte lips can look much more effective, and tend to last a lot longer. Although they are matte, they are still very creamy and go on like a dream. Let's also not forget the cute packaging! I absolutely love Topshop packaging, and these are so nifty just to throw in your handbag/clutch and be on your way. 

The only thing about these that I don't like, is that you have to sharpen them in order to get more product once it's worn down. Although i'm sure it's not a major fault for most of you, it's just one less thing you really want to do when you could just grab a lipstick and twist it up, no hassle. It certainly won't stop me using them, as I love to pop a little bit of lipgloss on top to give them a much shinier finish, and be on my way. I'm a particular fan of the orange one (Hedonist) but then does that really surprise you? ;)

Do you own any of these? What do you think of lip crayons in general?

  2. i haven't tried these yet as i was a bit worried about them clinging to dry patches but as it's no longer winter (although it hardly seems like summer is here) i might give them a try

    ibought infrared lipstick on your recommendation and loved it so i might give hedonist a go!

    love your reviews

  4. I like the sound of these as they are more matte, and sometimes I really like that look on myself. I always have been impressed with the Topshop make-up so I think im going to give these a go :)

  5. "but then does that really surprise you?" that's the first thing I noticed when I saw the pictures.

    I love these, they look great. PLUS I love matte lipstick :)

    I hate that when you sharpen ANYTHING (lip/eye liner, jumbo pencil) you are throwing product away, that's why I'd rather go for a retractile liner, or lipstick in this case...

  6. I've never tried a lip crayon but have always thought the colours looked really lovely every time I went into Topshop! I think the only thing that would put me off is that fact that they are more drying, however I think I can look past that purely for the pretty colours!x

    ReplyDelete
  7. Ooh I really like the orange one! Whenever I see these in Topshop they only have like one or two colours on display, which is weird. Might go pick one of these up if I can find them :)! xxx

  8. These sound wonderful and I really love the colours. I must try these and other Topshop make-up soon!

  9. All three shades look gorgeous! I've only ever tried the Topshop Nail Polishes so these are defo on my wish list! But I have tried lip crayons before from other brands. I found one lip crayon from a particular brand very difficult to sharpen so I never purchased it again.

    Thanks for another great post Zoe! xx

  10. The colours you have are beautiful :)
    I was never even curious about Topshop makeup until you started this series of blog posts and now I can feel my purse calling me!

  12. I've never tried lip crayons before, but I've always liked the look of the TopShop ones. This post was really helpful and I'll think I'll definitely be trying some now :) What brand of pencil sharpener do you use for them? xx

  13. These look lovely! I'm always pretty boring and stick to either red lipstick or my trusty vaseline! Think I need to branch out and start trying some of these pretty colours!

  16. I haven't tried these yet, I keep wanting to order some of these and the lipsticks online but with their colours they tend to look very different once you've actually applied them so I'm counting down the days until I'm back in the UK to head to TopShop. Your review has convinced me that I need to try the orange one out the most (orange lipsticks are my Achilles hell).

  17. I have one of these in Coy, I was so excited to try it but it turned out to look really dry on my lips and came off quite quickly!

    I am definitely more of a creamy lipstick girl.

  18. i adore Topshop makeup line. I wanted to try their lipsticks for a while but not sure what holds me back. :p I hate sharpening any jumbo pencil, always ended up melting them down into a pot.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm always scared to try lipsticks beacause my lips seem to react badly to anything I use that's not Vaseline or Carmex! However, I do like to add a little color so I think I might give one of these a go, "Powder Room" is not too bright and seeing as I'm not brave enough to go for anything too bold I think that will be the one I buy. I have prom next week and have been on the look out for a pretty pink lipstick so this may be the perfect shade. Great post and review, thanks :)

  29. Yeah, sharpening is a hassle but I think I'd definitely still try one of these out! Packaging is so cute and the colors are great. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. The hedonist one looks lovely! These are quite similar to Clinique chubby sticks except not with the hefty price tag! :) x

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really love Topshop's makeup packaging. I do love the colours too. It's such a shame that the only Topshop store in Australia is in Melbourne, which inconveniently is not where I live! Love this post!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great review, i love each colour that you picked out! Hedonist is my favourite out of the selection you purchased though, it's stunning. I am still yet to try the topshop makeup, i just wish the store nearby had a wider selection! I'm pretty sure all they sell is the nail varnishes :/

    Lots of Love, Ana

  86. I tried one of these in store a little while back on the back of my hand and it was so creamy and easy to apply. I was only there to pick up an eyeliner though so I left it, but I think I need to go back! I agree with the sharpening though, that could potentially be annoying. great post. x

  87. I hate that my local topshop doesn't stock their make-up line :(
    It means I have to travel 45minutes just so I can lust after these pencils, as well as everything else!

  124. I really LOVE these!!
    I went to London in august and as I am from the Netherlands and we don't have a Topshop there, my friend and I went completely NUTS at Topshop!
    We lost it, over it's make-up and especially the lip crayons/lipsticks!
    I will deffinetly come back for these baby's!

    p.s. good thing to know that it is possible to sharpen them. (had a small heart attack when I thought I could never use them again.. silly me) :)|

    really enjoy reading your blog Zoe! It's one of the things I look forward reading or watching every week!
