Budget Beauty - mark Cosmetics Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon

*Back to School Pick! 
mark Cosmetics really got the concept of a "lipstick in a pencil" right with Make It Rich Lip Color Crayon. 

I loved how smooth, lightweight and creamy the color was - it was like applying a lipstick out of a tube. Yet, because it's in a pencil format, I had a lot of control over the application of the color. 

One of my favorite shades is the Hot Sauce (seen on the far right of the product shot). This is a RED lover's red lipstick shade, super pigmented and it's a true red with some slight blue undertones. 

The finish semi-matte, and does work with gloss if you desire more shine. I also loved Hey Honey for a "neutral/nude" lip for a more relaxed lip look. This is a very pretty pinky-golden-medium brown and will work with most skin tones.

All of these also make great lip pencils as well, for use with glosses, other lip products, or used with filling in your lips with the pencil as well. 

The wear is very good with all the colors - they do seem to have a slight "staining" effect, so that even after eating, drinking, etc. there is a significant amount of color that is left behind. Equally as important, the formula is hydrating and never made my lips dry or flaky. 

They're perfect for travel and the gym, and if you're heading to college/back to school, these are also going to be perfect to add to your school bag as well since they're also a great bargain (only $11)! - RLB
