Around boxing day sales time, I picked this up from boots at the bargain price of £5. The full price was £10 which is fantastic value within itself considering one lip crayon retails for £4.99. I believe the colours in this set were limited edition but the normal range which you can buy from Boots, has a selection of 5 colours. Seventeen is currently on 3 for 2 so if you like the look of these, now is the time to grab them.
The only negative I have about the product is the lid. It is so loose that it barely stays on which can be a big problem if you want to put it in your make up bag.
|I just thought this looked cool once I'd wiped off the lip swatches.|
As you can see with the lip swatches, it sure packs some colour. I use the nude colour (for my skintone anyway) nearly everyday. On my lips, it just gives a nice sheen (although I can build it up) but I imagine it would be a very pretty colour on fairer skin/less pigmented lips.
If you'd like to see swatches of the colours available in store, a year ago I did a 'swatching session' post and here you can see the whole range. Funnily enough I actually forgot about this till I googled swatches and my link came up in the results!
Overall, I think these lip crayons are a great option on the high street, that's if you're not sick of the jumbo lip pencil craze.
Till next time...Toodles! :)
