Finally, lightweight, non-sticky, super-shiny lip gloss in a pencil that you can actually use and sharpen as easily and as precisely as a pencil! Yes, it’s a revelation but, please, ask for it by name: Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss. Rich in plant extracts, its shimmering, creamy texture hydrates and nourishes your lips, keeping them feeling comfortable and oh, so sexy all day. Ooh la la.
Lise Watier is a Canadian makeup brand. Its line of Lip Kiss Crayon Glosses are marketed as moisturizing, pencil-form glosses and come in 9 shades. The shade in Bronze Romance is reviewed, below.
This gloss comes in pencil form and will need to be sharpened as you use up the product. It’s approximately the width of a NYX Jumbo Pencil.
Bronze Romance is a copper color with tiny, lighter copper shimmers.
The consistency of the gloss is a cross between a regular lip gloss and a lip balm. They gloss isn’t sticky, but does have some viscosity to it, so it’s not liquid-like the way glosses are. It has medium emollience, bringing moisture to the lips.
The color is translucent, but can be layered to make the finish more opaque. You need to layer evenly, though, or else you will get patches of shimmer and pigment.
The Lip Kiss Crayon Glosses have a strong, sweet smell that lingers after application. If you’re sensitive to smells or don’t prefer sweet scents, it may bother you to use this gloss.
This product isn’t very long-wearing because of the formula, so expect about 1-2 hours of wear before it fades.
Ease of Use: 9/10
The pencil form makes application very precise. The only thing you need to watch out for is uneven layering.
