Bdellium Tools Lip Crayons | Review + Swatches | New

I am so excited to share this post. As you may know by now, I'm a big fan of Bdellium Tools. I have purchased their brushes at various shows (The Makeup Show and IMATS) and I've even chosen to work with them on reviews because I love their products so much. You can see previous Bdellium Tools posts here

So when the brand reached out to me again to tell me they were releasing a new line of lip crayons, I was instantly interested. I know they take good care to bring quality products that are also affordable and was psyched that they are branching out into makeup. 

Of course I wanted to take the new lippies out for a test run! C'mon, that's a no brainer. 

I received four of the seven available shades: Helen of Troy (dusty rose), In the Nude (peachy-nude), Sinister Rouge (vampy burgundy) and Kadooment (orange-red). 

I love a nice lip crayon because they are easy to swipe on and carry around. These have a nice slim (not chubby like the Revlon or Clinique variety) casing and a simple glossy black metal packaging.  At first glance they seem pretty unassuming. The colors I received are pretty simple to wear. Nothing too wild. They range from easy every day shades (Helen of Troy and In the Nude) to bright (Kadooment) and vampy (Sinister Rouge).  

BUT! Once you swipe these on, they're far from ho-hum. They give you everything you want for only $10 each (1.5 g):
  • Moisture for days: They're made with shea butter so they are buttery smooth and keep your lips soft and hydrated. 
  • Lip balm feel, high impact color: These may feel like a buttery lip balm but they deliver lots of pigment. No sheer, hiding-in-plain-sight colors here. Nope. Think high end color quality. 
Besides looking and feeling awesome there lip crayons don't require a sharpener (just twist the bottom like you would a lipstick tube) and they are paraben and fragrance free.  

I've been wearing Helen of Troy and Sinister Rouge on heavy rotation for the past 3 weeks. One of the two colors is always in my purse.  You know, in case you have trouble deciding which of the seven shades you want, those are just my suggestions (wink, wink!).
