For summer I want something on my lips that’s sheer and easy-to wear with a nice dewy sheen. I am definitely not a lip gloss person as I hate the gloopy feel of them on my lips, the way my hair always seems to get stuck in it… So the Soap & Glory Gloss Sticks (£8 each) are pretty much my perfect alternative.
I have two gorgeous shades to show you: Nudist* and Raplumzel, which are both pretty much as advertised! Nudist is a lovely, subtle warm nude shade whereas Raplumzel is a sort of bitten redcurrant colour. Whilst they are sheer they do offer a nice level of colour pay-off for the Summer glossy lip look.
The obvious thing to compare these twist-up lip crayons to are the Clinique Chubby Sticks, however I definitely think the formula of these is a little different. These are definitely more of a high-shine gloss as opposed to simply being a balm-like sheer lip colour. I actually find they last quite nicely on the lips. You won’t get the full-on glossiness for more than a couple of hours (especially when eating and drinking) however the colour stays behind quite nicely for another hour or two. Overall though it’s the kind of product I expect to reapply throughout the day and generally I don’t mind this as the crayon form of this product makes it effortless.
I really like this product and will definitely be getting my hands on a few more shades as I think they’re the perfect minimal effort subtle lip colour for on holiday.
