Seventeen Lip Crayon

[[I'd like to point out first that my teeth look incredibly wonky (in the photo above) and they honestly aren't that bad (well.....!!!) I have a chip in one of my teeth and one of my front two teeth slightly overlaps the other! But you can see that! I just thought I'd mention it to clear up that I am aware of how horrible my teeth are!!;)]]
Anywaayyy!! I brought this product a little while ago now and I really do love it!! I have never been brave enough to wear dark and bold lipsticks, in fact until about 9 ish months ago I wasn't really into wearing lipstick or lip gloss at all! I wanted to start wearing it to see if it suited me and this was a nice nude colour that wasn't too 'out there' or anything but it just added a tiny bit of colour to my lips!

 
 
 
 
 
It glides onto your lips nicely and it doesn't take too much pressure to get the colour out. As you can tell it isn't the darkest colour and if I'm honest it doesn't really stay on your lips that long. I don't wear a lip primer, which might help, but I just apply it to my lips after my carmex lip balm, and it probably lasts about an hour before it starts to fade. Because it is already a light colour, it appears to have completely come off after not too long.


 
I am still not too into wearing bright lipsticks, but I do have a orangey/pinky coloured lipstick which doesn't suit my skin tone. However, I often put that lipstick on and then put a bit of this 'crayon' on over the top, and then smudge the two together. This creates a nice neutral colour, but with a slightly more pink colour than just this alone. I love to wear the two together (even though I haven't explained it very well!!!) It lasts ever so slightly longer when I wear the two together but still not for ages! I might have to try a lip primer soon. Any suggestions?!

 
This product only cost me £4.99, and you can now buy all 4 colours they do in this crayon for £10. It is a lovely starting product for your lips and maybe if I wore it with a primer I would find that it would last longer, which is my only problem with this product really!
 
Thanks for reading and I love receiving your comments! Also, if you know of any lip primers that you think are worth buying then please let me know!!:)

    1. It really is! I highly suggest it if you don't normally wear lipstick because it's so subtle, but it's still there if you get me!!;)

  3. I always love nude lips like this with dramatic eyes- though admittedly i go for the bold colors more often ;) i think this a great every day shade though!

    1. I have paired this with some slightly smokey eyes before, and it kind of balances it out so that your whole makeup isn't too in your face! Thanks for reading
