Hi lovelies! If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen the photo I shared of this beauty the other day. It's one of the new Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons in the shade 'Peach On The Beach' (cutest name). To be honest, up until just recently, Bourjois had always been a brand I'd slightly overlooked, despite the rave reviews about several of their products (including the chocolate bronzer, which I finally purchased - review up soon!). But a few weeks ago before I went away, I picked up their Bronzing BB cream and loved it, so I decided to give them another try! So, while in Boots, I saw these lip crayons and despite generally being very unadventurous with my lip colour choices (nude, nude pink, light peachy pink...) this colour really stood out to me and I figured hey, it's summer, perfect time to be a bit more daring!

So, as you may be able to tell from the photos, I couldn't wait to give this a go and was a bad blogger and used it before taking pictures! The consistency is gorgeous, it goes on smoothing and glides over the lips, leaving a semi sheer wash of colour. It's very pigmented, but not totally opaque, which I love as it gives a bold colour on its own, but can also be even bolder, or more muted with another lip colour worn underneath.This claims to be waterproof and to last ten hours, Now it's definitely not waterproof as far as the glossiness goes, particularly with eating and drinking! However, I do find it stains your lips with the colour, so the colour does last a long time when you look at it that way, 10 hours though? Not sure.

As I said, I'm usually not very brave with lip colours at all, but there's something so flattering about the colour and consistency of this! I definitely want to try some other shades and have got my eye on the orange one at the moment. If you're anything like me and feel a bit shy wearing brighter shades, but fancy something a bit different for the summer, then these will be perfect for you.

What do you think? Have you tried the Color Boost Crayons?



  1. These Boujois Color Boost lip pencils look amazing. I am dying to get my hands on this shade and the bright pink one. Hardly any lip product can last that long so saying it lasts 10 hours is definitely optimistic ha! A trip to Boots or Superdrug is on the cards this week


  2. I have heard that these are better than the Revlon one. Have you tried those? What do you reckon? :) x

  16. I have this in 01 Red Sunrise, which I love - I have pale skin so, no matter how much I love them, the peachier shades can wash me out. I tested the colour over a 12hr shift and while the glossiness didn't last, my lips definitely looked more vibrant and perky after work, which for me, is the ultimate test! I have 3 of the revlon jbkbs which I love, but I feel that the formula of the bourjois offering is slightly better - the shade range needs to catch up!In my eyes, they are quite similar brands, with better quality drugstore/highstreet products, but you do pay a bit more for them.

  17. Such a gorgeous colour! I've always wanted to try Bourjois' color boost! (:

  18. wowww.. the colour is showed up well.. i really want to try bourjois, unfortunately, it's not sold in my country :(
