I’ve had a Rodial item in a Glossybox before, and whilst it was okay it didn’t set the world on fire for me. That was a mascara, so I’m really glad to have the opportunity to try this Suede Lips crayon from Augusts Glossybox to give the brand another chance.
My Glossybox Card Says:
“Intense. Matte. Moisturising. This perfect summer lip shade contains hydrating vitamin E and the shape makes it easy to swipe on. For precision, line lips with the soft berry shade them fill in, but for a softer look apply crayon all over lips then blur the edges slightly with your fingers.”
This is a full size 2.4g crayon in the shade Big Apple. The crayon is available from rodial.co.uk for £22 with free delivery.
The crayon is black in colour and the front has the brand and product in silver writing.
The back of the crayon has the ingredients (below), size, place of manufacture (China) and company contact information.
Removing the lid from the crayon I can see this crayon is a no sharpener required type – which I love the most. If I start to run out of crayon nib I can simply twist the end and let more out.
Before applying the crayon to my lips I decide to test it on my arm. The crayon is a berry colour and is easy to apply. I can build up the colour to be stronger in certain places by going over it, but the application isn’t flawless and leaves a grainy finish where specks of crayon have left darker areas than others. I am aware that my lips are smoother so I’m hoping this will create a more even finish.
I start by using the crayon to line my lips. It’s got quite a chunky nib and it glides around my lips easily.
I then use the crayon to fill in my lip colour. Again, the colour goes on easily and provides a subtle colour to my lips.
Overall this is a nice lip crayon which gives a subtle colour finish. I usually tend to wear lip balm or bold shade lipsticks, I don’t tend to do half measures so I’m not sure if this is something I will wear.
