If you saw my haul post last week, you will know that I had a bit too much fun at the MAC and L'Oreal counters. Well I thought it was about time to show you one of the items that I picked up. I love the idea of crayon like item's for lips and really loved the Bourjois Color Boost range. I am a sucker for unusual colours too and when I saw this almost two-tone shade, I knew I had to have it.
Dare the Dragonfruit is a raspberry toned shade with speckles of blue and purple glitter running through it. I know that doesn't sound too appealing but the glitter seems to create the two-toned effect that intrigued me to begin with and it is a lot more of a wearable colour than I have made it sound. This was way more pigmented than I thought it would be, which was a nice surprise as some balms only tend to have a hint of colour but you can really see a change in colour with this one.
The 'Balmy Gloss' range seems to be L'Oreals take on the crayon type formula and is one of the best I have tried. I didn't find this sticky on the lips at all, it just made my lips feel nice and moisturised but not in an annoying I can feel it's there kind of way. Unlike L'Oreal lipsticks, this doesn't have a scent which I am thankful for as I'm not the biggest fan of their chemical type smell.
They do only last a few hours on the lips, but after the balm has worn the colour doesn't seem to disappear completely. I always seem to get left with a nice tint of the shade on my lips which could be a lipstick in itself ha!
I really like this style of lip colour for when I am on the go, they are so easy to apply and buildable in colour too. I have been wearing this shade a lot, it's nice a bright for a night out but not too drastic to wear in the day too! ♥
