Colour my lips pretty...

I'm very simplistic when it comes to the colours I wear on my lips, I like a lot of nude shades. 

However the latest trends appear to be these lovely lip crayons that I kinda wanted to try out but didn't want to end up wasting my money. Thank goodness for freebies and beauty boxes is all I can say!!

In this months Birchbox I received a Laqa & Co - Lip Lube (cheeky I know) which is a pretty bold purple shade called Menatour. This was a pleasant surprise though totally not my colour. 

I also ended up buying two Glamour Magazines this month because they had two different shades of the Clarins - Chubby Sticks, Super Strawberry and Woppin' Watermelon and I needed both, obviously. 

They all look pretty cute together and immediately my collection has tripled. What I will say is I'm actually pretty impressed and may in fact have to try more of these beauties! 

Let's start with the Laqa & Co - Lip Lube

Pretty damn purple huh? Even though this colour is too much for me, I don't hate it as much as I thought I would. It's incredibly pigmented which is a great thing. I think if I only applied a small amount it would probably be easier to wear for me but I wanted to see it's full effect. 

Moving onto Clarins - Chubby Sticks

This is gorgeous shade is Woppin' Watermelon and I think it's great! These are completely different to the Laqa & Co one because these more sheer therefore much easier to wear. I like that they add a bit of colour but they're also very much like a balm. 

Love love love it in Super Strawberry though! Can you tell by the smirk?! 

Massive fan, these Chubby Sticks are definitely going to be added to my handbag. 

Have you tried the Chubby Sticks? 

What shade of Laqa & Co did you get in your Birchbox? 


  1. I love chubby sticks! They're the best lip crayon product I've found on the market. My favourite colour has to be the Broadest Berry shade, it's delicious!

    1. I definitely agree with you! Though I must try the Broadest Berry shade, now I've tried a couple I need to try more! Thanks for your comment!xx
