The great lip crayon experiment 2014 (updated 2/2016!)

Like Tree8Likes

I'd love to find some nice warm neutral ones that are medium in tone, at the drugstore. I thought I had found one with Jordana's lip crayon in Terra Crave, but unfortunately it turned PINK and too bright on my lips not long after I put it on I'm NOT a pink lipstick gal at all with my coloring. But over on MUA, some other people commented that the Jordana crayons, almost no matter what shade, tended to do this. Fine if one want bright pink lips though! However, the Revlon Lip Lacquer one in Coy looks promising - maybe I'll try that one.
I love pink but not a bright pink! I've also been looking for a nice pinkish terracotta color but haven't found one yet.

My favorite color of lipstick are pink and red...
OK, Jeep, have you tried the Ulta lip crayons?
I went the other day and I was able to get a 2 for 1 deal (usually $8.00 each). I think I may have found a good brown one (Sugar & Spice).
They're nice and creamy, not matte nor glossy nor shimmery. The colors don't always seem to match the outside of the crayon, but they go on well (neither too much color nor invisible).
If I can get another 2 for 1, then I need to go back and try out a couple purples.

So it's been awhile since I last updated! I've given away all the lip crayons I didn't like and have pretty much used up the ones I liked that I use almost every day. I have a couple darker shades that I don't use as often so they are still in good shape. I am down to my last 2 Wet & Wild Megaslicks, the original discontinued one that is still my favorite, so that gives me anxiety. : )

I went on ebay to order some new ones and found some Tarte Lipsurgent for decent prices and I just got them in the mail and am happy with them all! I liked this brand in my original experiment but they are pretty pricey for my taste but otherwise they were high on my list of favorites. I like all the shades and finishes that I got.
Fancy - matte berry, Alluring - matte mauve pink, and Blushing Bride - plum rose. 2 are minis, which are pretty large in this brand, and 1 is full size and all 3 were $24.87 with free shipping so not bad at all.

I've always wanted to try the Tarte ones, but I find I always think I'll use lip colors then never do and always fall right back to my Burt's Bees pomegranate lip balm. I got rid of so many lip crayons when we moved because I bought them with great intentions and never used them.

The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

Where do you ladies dispose of your unwanted makeup? I'm always looking for recipients, because I am insane and almost always fall for good packaging.

My sisters and cousins and I get together a few times a year for B1tch n Swap parties. We eat, drink, b1tch about things, and we bring anything we don't want or need and pile it all in a room and take out what we want. It's great fun

Claudine, another way we are sisters under the curls. I'm also a makeup junkie. I give a lot of my stuff to my sister.

OT: I love to watch youtube makeup tutorials. I recommend Lisa Eldridge - for her accent as well as her expertise.
