This time I will write a review about a lip crayon from Born Pretty Store called the Hot Shop. This post should be up last year, but I didn't received my products for almost 4 months, that's why I can only write this post now. Blame the Indonesia custom, they held my package for months without any reason. sigh. Luckily Alicia from BPS is very nice. She offered me a new product to review and wait patiently for my review *thank you~*
Now, after like forever I'm waiting for my package, last week, it finally arrived with a lot of struggles *I will skip the long process because it maybe boring to read*. The one that arrived was the first package that BPS sent to me, which is this cute lip crayon.
Now let's begin the review~
Packaging: The packaging is like an automatic pencil. But this one is a huge one. The main color is mint color with black dots and stars on the lower packaging. To use it, simply twist the bottom of the pen.
Swatch: My shade is number #11. It is a red color with shimmer. Born Pretty Store has many color variants for this lipstick (12 colors) and all of them are so pretty. I even had a hard time to choose the shade when the first time they contacted me.
The texture is silky and creamy. It glides on easily on my lips and the color is quite pigmented. It doesn't has any scent and also doesn't makes my lips dry. I was very impressed with the quality.
I was quite confused with this product. It is stated as lip crayon. In my opinion, lip crayon is the same with lipstick, only the packaging is different. Because this one is on pencil packaging. But, when I use this lip crayon, I think the formula is similar to a lipbalm but with very pigmented color. And also after I try it, it feels really moisturising and lightweight on my lips. The staying power is also good for hours. But please note, this lip crayon isn't kiss-proof. When I drink my water, it transfers to the glass. This lip crayon now become one of my favourite lipstick. You know I always have a little problem with lipstick. Sometimes, I want to wear red lipstick but bold red is just to much, also I want something glossy on my lips but lip gloss feels super sticky on my lips *I own zero lipgloss FYI, because I hate the sticky things on my lips*, this is the best answer for my problem. I love the red color *the shimmers are hardly noticeable* and also the glossy effect from this "pigmented-lip-balm-in-crayon-shape". I only owned few lipstick with glossy effect *mostly my lipsticks are matte* and this one definitely a GOOD ONE! Thank you Alicia for introducing to this little baby~
