Lip crayons may not be a popular choice for some and I get it. When you hear the word “crayon,” the first thing that will come in your mind is probably a colored pencil or stick that is used for drawing. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I don’t associate crayons with make-up that much. But lip crayons actually make our beauty routine more simple, as it is a combination of a liner, balm, gloss, and lipstick. They also deliver the right amount of color.
I’ve rounded up the best lip crayons you can buy, from matte to balms to gloss-like lippies:
