NEW Sportsgirl Pucker Up Lip Crayons

Spring Racing is just around the corner, with Derby Day (Saturday 2nd Nov), Melbourne Cup (Tuesday 5th Nov) and Oaks Day (Thursday 7th Nov) drawing near, now is the time to have your dress, shoes, fascinator/headpiece and beauty essentials all ready for the exciting festivities! As a beauty enthusiast, choosing a lip colour to suit your dress is super important and choosing one that is of low maintenance and has good staying power is one that you should definitely consider! 

Australia fashion house Sportsgirl recently unveiled their new Pucker Up Lip Crayon (A$8.95/2g) to ensure your lips look bold, bright and beautiful for this current Spring season trend! The Pucker Up Lip Crayons are composed of Carnauba wax, Bees wax, Ceresin, Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter, and are 'tested on Sportsgirls NOT animals'!

Sportsgirl Pucker Up Lip Crayon is available in three chic shades: Beauty Queen, Fruit Tingle and Bombshell.

Sportsgirl Pucker Up Lip Crayon in Beauty Queen
Beauty Queen - a pale pink shade for an elegant soft look that would compliment pastel and/or lace dresses. I honestly found this shade quite difficult to wear because I've never really worn pastel pink shades on my lips before. Instead of wearing this shade alone, I found that blotting my lips with a tissue to tone down the colour intensity and applying gloss makes my lips look a lot better and more elegant.

Sportsgirl Pucker Up Lip Crayon in Fruit Tingle
Fruit Tingle - a neon coral/pink salmon shade to suit bright and vibrant floral dresses or even bold one-tone dresses. Fruit Tingle is quite a striking shade which gives a soft matte finish. I love wearing coral shades because it brightens my light complexion. Fruit Tingle is quite a unique shade in my collection and I could easily wear this with most of outfits.
Sportsgirl Pucker Up Lip Crayon in Bombshell
Bombshell - a beautiful intense bright red shade that would be perfect for the black and white dress code on Derby day. Bombshell is my favourite of the 3, because it looks bold, loud and daring on my lips! The formula of Bombshell is very similar to your typical lipstick, because it applies on smoothly, feels uber moisturising (surprising for a lip crayon!) and is extremely pigmented with a satin shine finish.

I love that these crayons are slightly rounded but pointed at the tip so that you could accurately apply on the go and create a super sexy cupids bow to your upper lip. The formula stays put very well and doesn't smudge, bleed nor slide. Just make sure that you apply neatly and carefully, otherwise it would be difficult to tidy-up due to the high affinity of the formula to the lip. Although these Pucker Up Lip Crayons in Beauty Queen and Fruit Tingle are matte, the texture was incredibly creamy and they glide on smoothly thanks to the Shea Butter ingredient. Just like most matte lip products out there, these crayons do not provide moisture and hydration to the lips like most lipsticks would, so that explains why it is a little drying to the lips. I would suggest applying lip balm, just to avoid dry lips. The only exception is with the shade Bombshell, which I found was totally moisturising! Despite the drying factor, the pigmentation of these creamy matte crayons is exquisite and uber beautiful! This is why I love the look of matte lips! Even though these lip crayons provide nothing but a burst of long lasting colour to the lips, they sure do last a good 3 hours before fading to a soft flush of colour. 

Pucker Up Lip Crayons are available at Sportsgirl stores and online
