So “Lip Crayons” have been all the rage for quiet some time now. 1. Probably because most of them are pretty nourishing. 2. They are fool proof, almost all of the ones I own can be put on without using a mirror. and 3. The color payoff is on point. Stick around to see which brand I think is the best. Lip Crayon Throwdown here we go…
*Disclaimer: I haven’t tried every brand of lip crayon out there. This is merely just a competition between the ones I own. I’m sure there are even better brands than this.
Revlon Colorbust Matte Balm in Standout | I love a good matte lipstick because they last much longer, this is no exception. This can last for hours, even after you eat. The color pigmentation is crazy good being very opaque. And these go on so smooth, just like butter. What you see in the tube is what you get. This has a slight minty scent to it, but I find it refreshing. Most of the time matte lipsticks can be really drying, but not this one it is packed with moisture. | $8.99 at Ulta
Flower Lip Suede Velvet Lip Chubby in Life’s a Peach | I love this color! I had been looking for a color like this for a while, it’s like a neon peach color. It does feel very velvety on the lips which is a nice feeling. It last for a decent amount of time, but just be prepared to apply it again. I found it was a kind of hard to get this to be opaque, I had to use several coats and you can still kind of see my lips through it. | $7.98 at Walmart
Wet N Wild Megaslicks Balm Stain in A Stiff Pink | This is a really great balm stain, because it does actually stain the lips. I had a hard time getting it off, but really that’s worth it to me if it’s going to stay on all day. The color is a really good every day pink, that is opaque. This formula is moisturizing. The only problem I have with this is the lid always falls off and can sometimes create a mess, but I may have just gotten a faulty one. | $2.99 at drugstores
Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt | Out of all the lip crayons I own, this is probably my least favorite. I don’t feel like it’s very special, but it is a pretty color. There is nothing wrong with this, I just don’t gravitate towards using this one. It’s not super long lasting, but it is nourishing. | This color is only sold individually on Amazon for $5.49 or you can buy a kit at Ulta with 6 colors in it for $25.00
Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Crayon in Hot Damn | I love how rich this color is and it feels very smooth on the lips. But for the price, I think there are other great lip crayons that are even better. I do love how sleek the packaging is though. | $14 from Be A Bombshell Cosmetics.
Moment of Truth
So who in my opinion wins the Lip Crayon Throwdown? Revlon Colorburst Lip Crayon. These are so pigmented, last forever, and are a great price. I have several of these in different colors and they are just my go-to lip crayons. So if you are looking for a good lip crayon you have to check these out! They come in so many colors so you will definitely find something you like.
.Have you tried any lip crayons? Which one is your favorite?
Jade @ Jonesin' For Taste
Apparently I live under a rock because I didn’t even know these existed. I’ve recently started wearing lipstick but these look like a more practical every day solution than lipstick, especially with 2 little kids who needs lots of kisses throughout the day. :)
Love this post!! Will have to look into lip crayons :))
So I’m a lip stick with gloss over top kind of girl. Would these be too dry for me? Which are the most nourishin gin your opinion?
There are definitely ones that are more moisturizing than others! I would definitely start with the original Revlon Kissable Balm Stains, they are really nourishing plus great color payoff and they stay on for a long time! Those are absolutely my go to’s! Let me know if you try them! :)
Love this post! I NEVER wear lipstick but have wanted to start experimenting with a stain so this is perfect! Thanks for sharing your opinions!
Dana @ The Closet Confessional
Absolutely! If you never wear lipstick then these are great! They are just like a chapstick, with actual color payoff. There are tons of neutral colors too, I just love the bold bright ones! :)
You know – I kinda of looking forward now to each new post of yours :)
This is a great one, and I’m definitely going to look for these Revlon’s creyons
Aww thank you so much! That’s super sweet!
Great review I adore the Revlon too :)
Great choice! They are so great!
Actually my current favourite lip crayon is a Revlon one – it is my go too red :) Thanks for sharing
Absolutely! Do you use the same color I do? Love it!
This is great. I haven’t worn lipstick (even once) since I got pregnant three years ago. (Crazy right?!) This motivates me to dive back in.
Oh great! Since you haven’t worn it in a while, start out with a color that’s kind of like your lips but better, and you’ll be able to get used to it better. Me on the other hand, I like very bold, bright colors! :)
I’m a huge fan of the lip crayons and the Revlon kissables are the best. I also love the Wet n Wild ones because they are cheap and they do last all day. I’m with you on the POP. I have one and its nothing to write home about.
Glad we agree and have the same tastes! Yea as you can read, I love the Revlon ones, but the Wet n Wild came in as a close second, because they are so great for such a great price!
Mine it’s the e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color (Rich Red)
Oh I’ve never tried that one! I definitely need to!
Aubrey @ 53 Weeks
I have yet to try a lip crayon…but I have serious lips drying out issues, so maybe this is a good option to try! I need the moisture!!
Yea definitely try one the word “balm” in the title. Like the original Revlon lip crayons are called Kissable Balm Stains, the balm makes them much more moisturizing. Not all lip crayons are.
Kristen @ Your Beauty Fix
Love this idea! I’m a lip crayon junkie haha ;)
Kristen @ Your Beauty Fix
As you can tell, I am too! I have several more I didn’t even blog about, but they are all Revlon ones! Go figure! :)
amazing post hun:))
Thanks so much! :)
I haven’t tried them yet, but I think I will. I need a change of pace. Enjoyed my visit!
Yea definitely give them a try, and let me know what you think!
Lauren at Oh, Honestly!
I never use anything except for chapstick, but lately I’ve been thinking I need a little color on my lips, so this is helpful. Thanks for the info!
Absolutely! Even if you just start out with something light, and kind of like your lips but better! It’s kind of like an enhanced chapstick, if you will!

I want to try the Revlon ones for so long, but unfortunately Revlon is not available where I live, so I might need to take the plunge and order off ebay. Thank you for sharing on Wake Up Wednesday Linky party :)
Aww such a bummer! Yea maybe you can find a good deal on Ebay and purchase a few colors! Thanks for stopping by! :)
I’ve never tried any lip crayons but I agree that the Revlon looked really good on you. I also liked the pink shade by wet and wild, it looked really good with your complexion.
Thank you so much! I like to wear a lot of different colors! Luckily my skin tone goes with a lot!
So apparently I need to take a shot at one of these. I really need to make sure I have one that doesn’t smudge and leave prints because of kisses on a certain 6 year old boy’s cheek before he gets on the bus in the morning.
Aww that’s cute!! I would probably try one of the Revlon Matte shades like I mentioned! Because they are matte they will stay on and not smudge. They come in more colors too, so you wouldn’t have to pick a bright red if you didn’t want to! :)
I have read really great reviews about the Revlon lip crayons, so I’m not surprised those won! I read another blog which said Jordana lip crayons are really good. I got the shade recommended by the blogger, but it looked kind of garish on me. That just goes to show not every product works on every body!
That is true! Even the ones I showed today may not look right on other people. I like to try a lot of colors. I’m definitely a bold kind of lipstick girl. I may have to try out the Jordana one though, I know that brand can be pretty inexpensive!
