Flormar Colour Up Lip Crayons review, photos, swatches!

Lip crayons are great for throwing in your handbag, ready to be whipped out at a moment's notice.  Unless you're like me and have way too many lip products sitting in the bottom of your handbag, at which point you need to take a cold hard look at yourself and cop on!  So now I only keep the good stuff in my handbag and these Colour Up Lip Crayons from Flormar have taken up residence.  Well a couple of them have anyway!

They come in 7 shades and there's pretty much a bit of something for everyone.  I think they could've done with having a bright bubblegum pink or a fuschia pink to round out the collection, but that being said, they're totally not my shades at all and they'd be wasted!

Each of the shades here are rich and creamy and apply to the lips easily without any pulling or tugging.  They have a twist up mechanism which means you don't have to worry about sharpening them, but I think the more I use them and the more the tip flattens, I'd have to use a lip liner to get full precision.  Especially with the darker shades.  More about that in a second.  But out of the seven, there are a couple that I've been wearing and loving!

Time to see them on the mush!

Nude Pink is verdy pale altogether and on its own, gives me concealer lips and enhanced dry patches.  But used over one of the darker shades, patted into the middle of the bottom lip, gave the illusion of plumper lips and that's how I've been using it since.

Salmon is the most wearable of all seven shades for me.  It's a warm peachy caramel shade (I'm not a fan of fish as lip shade names!) that works with my complexion and has been in rotation in my handbag since they sent it to me.

Lovely Pink was a surprise because you know me, I'm not usually a fan of pinks, but this is muted, wearable and is the closest to a nude pink that I'll ever get.  It's gorgeous.  Perfect for spring.

Caramel is autumn in a lip shade and this is one of my favourites.  It's opaque, doesn't bleed and again, is one that's in the handbag all the time now.  It's really rich in pigment and reminds me of conkers it's that deep.  I love it!

Cranberry is out of my comfort zone being a pinky toned red and I think around Christmas it would be fab.  But it makes me nervous being so bright and pigmented!

Mauve was the one that I thought I was going to love but it disappointed me the post.  I found it patchy and I couldn't get a clean edge around the lip line, so it's one I'd have to use with a lip liner.  I tried to apply a second layer which just moved the first layer and ended up losing the rag with it!

Red Velvet is a gorgeous bright red that's so bright it makes me nervous and because I applied these in number order, I applied it right after Mauve and worried that it would be hard to get a defined line, but it applied much better than Mauve.  But I think to be on the safe side, I'd use it with a lip liner, otherwise I know me, and I'd end up like The Joker in no time!

These crayons are €5.95 each which is a bargain and my picks?  Salmon and Caramel!  I know, I'm a nude lip fan and love what I love!  There's not a huge amount of longevity with these because of their glossy finish, but it's because of said finish that makes them so comfortable to wear, so I don't mind at all about needing to reapply.
