Collection Cosmetics Urbanista Lip Crayon

Red versus pink lipsticks. Which one do you prefer? Previously I would have chosen pink but this year it is all about reds for me. Is this a sign I am ageing? Haha!

Name: Collection Cosmetics Urbanista Lip Crayon
Price: RM 24.90 for 1.5 g
Made in: China

Lip crayons offer precise application without the hassle of sharpening (that is if the shape can be maintained). The formula starts out quite creamy and finishes glossy. As a result they don't come off too drying on the lips, making them the perfect makeup pouch accompaniment.

6 Dashing Diva is a face brightening crimson red and is surprisingly pigmented. This shade bears a strong resemblance to Etude House's Princess Etoinette Crystal Shine Lips in PRD302.

The colour payoff for 7 Weekend Wild - a blue toned pink - is weaker compared to Dashing Diva. It also settles into lip lines; a fault overlooked by Dashing Diva.

Wear time is pretty impressive as long as I don't go near food - we all know that is impossible because of my need to munch on something every 5 minutes. These lip crayons can withstand light snacking but not a full on meal. Even when they fade off, they leave behind a pretty stain.
