My Newest Obsession: Face Of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons

Wednesday, 27 June 2012




Hi Lovelies,


Now I've had these precious lip crayons since they first released them at the start of the month but am ONLY just getting around to blogging about them (and nope, I'm not trying to keep you all in the dark so I can buy them all!!). The day I bought them I became sick, and me being the germaphobe I am, I couldn't use them until I was better. Well this week I have been feeling good, and it may have something to do with these gems! (Aren't they pretty!)


If you're a fan of Chubby Sticks from Clinique, but aren't a fan of the huge price tag, then you NEED these in your life. And I mean NEED! 




They sell them in a pack and it contains 3 different colours. There is Macaron which is a gorgeous berry colour. Cupcake is a pretty pink and Sundae is a soft nudey brown. 


Top To Bottom: Macaron, Cupcake, Sundae


Originally I thought I would love Macaron because I'm having a love affair with reds and berry colours at the moment. But I really love Cupcake. It reminds me of Barbie. I feel so girly in it. I didn't expect to like Sundae as I don't ever use browns (besides on my eyes) but it is actually really nice for a understated look.

They are sooooooo incredibly soft and silky. I wish I could reach through the computer and swatch them on your arm so you can feel just how soft they really are. They glide on and are so easy to use. Even though they seem a bit chunky, because of the finer tip, it's still easy to stay inside your lip line. 




While they look like a big pencil, you just wind them up so you don't need to sharpen them. They have a beautiful cakey/vanilla smell that just makes it even more delightful to put on. 


I've left the best part to last. While these bad boys are only limited edition, they only cost $14.95 for the pack. Yep! $14.95 for all 3! I've seen on twitter and on blogs that the masses are having trouble finding them. I found mine at Big W on the 3rd of June. Only this week have I seen them in my local Priceline stores. 


Good luck finding them! You might need to try a few stores, but trust me when I say they are worth the effort!


Have you tried them yet? What did you think about them?
XO

  2. These look fab! I haven't bought them simply because I cannot justify new lip purchases ever again seeing as my collection is bulging as it is. Everyone is raving about them though, loves it X

    1. You should get them sooner rather than later since they are limited edition. :)

  3. Macaron looks lovely. I like that they're wind up, I always buy these sorts of things without thinking about how I'll sharpen them.

  5. Right...I do like this, I managed to find and swatch them before they were officially released (my Priceline had a stack in a corner) but I refrained as I have the same problem Ingrid has!!!

    I also find them a slightly more...creamy consistency than my Clinique Chubby Sticks, which mean they tend to move more on my lips than the Chubby Sticks do! Having said that though, I'd probably have bought it if I weren't overflowing with lip products. :P

    I think Sundae was my favourite colour. :)
