Review // Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon - Peach On The Beach

As I mentioned in my post about the newest in bronzing makeup technology here, Bourjois are coming out with some amazing products of late. They are, as I write, my current go to brand for nigh on everything, and for that, Bourjois, take a bow and pat yourselves on the back because in the highly competitive cosmetics world that's a pretty high achievement in my books!

I'd heard rumours in the blogosphere that Bourjois were bringing out a lip crayon to rival the other big contenders on the market, Revlon I'm looking at you. Again I was excited for these but couldn't see them on shelves anywhere, until I ended up on the weekly shop in Tesco and promptly swatched the four available shades, Peach On The Beach, Orange Punch, Red Sunrise, and Fuschia Libre priced at £7.99 a piece. 

Clearly the market for crayon like lip products has not yet fizzled out and I for one am loving them!

What do I love?
Although I can only speak for one colour of the quartet, I have to say that this lip crayon is by far the best of all that I've tried.

 The packaging is akin to most others, with a twistable bottom part to reveal more product and the colour of the outer casing aiming to match the inner colour of the product, which in this case is a soft coral peach. In terms of application this applies like a dream, it feels incredibly nourishing, almost like a soft lip balm and has a brilliantly vivd pigmentation that can be built up in multiple layers to gain a gorgeous pop of colour, or scaled down with a simple sweep of a finger on the lips to wear it as more of a tinted balm. 

The finish is glossy, more so than any other crayon style lip colour I've tried, and I like this a lot. It's a subtle sheen that makes your lips look healthy and nourished, not sticky like a gloss, and the lip crayon itself contains SPF 15, something important for the coming summer months (I know I always forget to use sun protection on my lips, so thanks Bourjois for doing this for me!).

What do I dislike?
Due to the incredibly creamy nature of the product itself you have to make sure you're really careful when reapplying the lid because any slight knock puts a big dent in the side of the bullet. I know this may seem pretty insignificant, but you know, it's all part of the aestethics of the product! Other than that I do not dislike anything, well maybe the fact that there are only 4 shades, more Bourjois, more

I've read around that these are set to launch on the 10th of July and that might explain their absence on shelves in Boots and Superdrug, however I have found them available on the Superdrug website, and do check out your local Tesco because I've had mine for at least a week and a half already. 

Are you a lip crayon fan or do you think these type of products are becoming over hyped? 


  1. I am getting a little bored of the lip crayons, but only when all the brands release pretty much the same shades. This one seems a little different though, and I always want to add more peachy lip products to my collection! xo

  2. This looks like a lovely colour, lots of the crayons are quite dark so it's really nice to see a lighter shade. I don't shop in tescos but might have to have a look just for these! x


  3. I've got all four of these lip crayons I love them, my fave is the orange one, gorge x

  4. I have been wanting to get this for a while but every times I go instore, there never seems to be any left.

  5. From a distance this looks exactly like the Revlon and MUA ones, which I have one each of already. I really like this colour and the fact it contains a SPF though xx

  6. This looks gorgeous, I am definitely going to buy one, I've been looking at lip crayons for ages but never go round to buying one, also congrats on graduating! Following you now :) xx


  7. I have brought three of these in my local Superdrug as they were 3 for 2 and even brought this shade. I love them, and love them compared to any other lip crayons, their consistency, pigment and lasting effects are so much better than any others I've tried! xo
