I was recently given a couple of the new Beauty UK Posh Pout Lip Crayons to try out. Now I am a big lover of lipsticks/crayons/balms/lip glosses, and generally my rule is the bolder the better! I love wearing bright lips, particularly in the winter months when everything is so dull and drab, I just have to get some colour out there! So luckily for me, this whole range is bright and colourful and so it is completely up my street.

I picked out two crayons in ‘Corally Correct’, a lovely citrus coral shade and ‘Power to the Purple’ which is a plum/burgundy colour and both are perfect for Autumn/Winter. I did really love ‘Big Pinkin’ which is so pink and very Barbie-like, but it is similar to a Topshop Lip Crayon I already own. Also, I think ‘Would I Lilac To You’ is also a beautiful shade but I’m not sure if I could pull off that pale parma violet hue, both of these shades felt a little bit Nicki Minaj to me, so I thought it might be better to stay away!

I wore ‘Corally Correct’ when I went out to dinner last weekend, and I have to say that it is very pigmented and bold for such a budget buy. In fact when I swatched all of the colours they all had great pigment and are not at all sheer like some other lip crayons I have tried.

However I do have one criticism, and that is they are quite drying so if your lips are at all chapped I would give them a miss. I have worn the crayons over the top of a lip balm and found it much less matte and drying, so they are still very wearable!

Overall for just £2.99 I think it is a great buy, I wouldn’t expect these crayons to be amazing quality, but for such a low price, I think the boldness and amount of pigment cannot be flawed. So if you have a few pounds lying around and fancy trying out some new lip shades without financial risk I think these Posh Pout Lip Crayons are a great place to start. You can get your own from the Beauty UK stand at Superdrug or online from their website, and there six gorgeous shades to chose from. Superdrug are currently running a 3 for 2 promotion on Beauty UK cosmetics until Tuesday 24th September.

    I love the shades! I love the Bourjois colour boost sticks but they're all pretty bright, so it's nice to see a darker red! Might pick one up if I go past a Superdrug soon :-) xx

    I'm not sure I've ever tried anything from Beauty UK before but I really should do as I'm big on budget brands and products.

    These look quite good for the price but it's unfortunate they're a little drying as these type of products are supposed to be moisturising!

    Great review x

      It is very cheap which is great, I'm on a budget at the moment so it is one of my go to brands. I prefer MUA make up but Beauty UK stuff is good for the price. They do a decent BB cream too!

      The fact that they are drying bothered me, especially as Beauty UK claim that they are a moisturising balms…but as long as you use a good lip balm with them they are fine for a quick (and cheap!) splash of colour.

      Thanks for reading though Hanna, I'm glad you liked it! xx
