Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss Review
Hi. My name is Marilyn. And I am a lipglossaholic. I wear gloss every day, have at least three in my desk at work, and probably at least half a dozen in my purse. While some might say I’m a junkie, I prefer to think of myself as a lipgloss connoisseur.
I critically examine every aspect of a gloss: smell, texture, flavor, ease of application, packaging, pigmentation…There is no detail too small for me to scrutinize! And happily Lise Watier’s Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss holds up to the most careful of examinations.
Obviously I’m always excited to try new lipglosses, especially ones from less common brands. I’d only heard of Lise Watier once (Stef got a gorgeous Duo and Shadow Glitter combo from last year’s IMAT’s – see it here), so there was definitely a bit of intrigue around the brand.
Lise Watier was founded in Quebec in 1972, and is a mainstay in Canadian beauty. The brand is not well known in the US (yet) but can be found at specialty makeup boutiques (we found the brand at Nigel’s Beauty Emporium at IMAT’s) and online at Naimie’s Beauty Center so you won’t need a passport to get your hands on their skincare, makeup and fragrance items.
For the uninitiated, the Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss ($18) promises “lightweight, non-sticky, super-shiny lip gloss in a pencil” and to make things even better, you can “actually use and sharpen (this gloss) as easily and as precisely as a pencil!” Available in nine distinct shades, this bright lip gloss is also rich in plant extracts so it moisturizes and nourishes lips while providing a spring friendly, sheer pop of color.
I found Lise Watier’s Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss to be an absolute treat for your lips. The team tested this pencil in Tender Pink a super soft, sheer, sweet pink. The gloss applies smoothly, gives your lips just barely a hint of color and shine, and feels lightweight on your lips. This sheer formula has a candy-like grape scent, that I wasn’t wild over, but others may find fun.
The pencil-like sharpening feature of this gloss is definitely unique and will appeal to makeup obsessives allowing for precision application. But if you are away from a sharpener or keep forgetting to use it, a kind of flat and and less defined point is still perfectly usable for applying the sheer formula.
I found the best thing of all about the Lip Kiss Crayon is that it moisturizes my lips for hours, even after the gloss has worn off. That’s what really blew me away. My lips have been really dry and have even started to crack, but this gloss has really helped to heal them.
If you’re looking for a bit more pigment on your lips, follow this tip from Lise and used a Lip Kiss Crayon as a color base, it will keep lips soft while “improving the staying power of your favorite lipstick.”
• easy to apply
• REALLY moisturizing
• can be easily sharpened with a standard dual sharpener
• not sticky
• candy-ish artificial grape scent
• unlike squeeze tube glosses, wand glosses, or twist up crayons, this needs to be sharpened
