Review: Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons

Face of Australia Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons hit the shops at the start of June. There has been so much hype about these lip crayons, I had to try it out for myself! In the last two weeks, I have searched high and low for these, most places were sold out!! I finally found it at Priceline on Bourke St opposite Target (if you get in quick they still had 3 more boxes left as of Sunday afternoon).

According to FOA "Lip colour has never been so fun and sweet with Face of Australia’s NEW Sheer Gloss Lip Crayons. These wind-up lip tints are smooth, moisturizing and smell like vanilla!".

These lip crayons are mega cute! They have dessert inspired names. Comes in 3 colours - Macaron, Cupcake & Sundae.
 Macaron - sheer strawberry pink
 Sundae - Sheer brown. Looks ok on but I'm not a fan of brown stuff. I feel like it doesn't do much for me. I've seen this look amazing on other girls.
 Cupcake - Sheer light pink. This is probably my favourite out of the 3. Gives your lips a nice gloss with a hint of pink.
Swatches from Left: Cupcake, Macaron & Sundae

I tried to make my swatches as neat as possible but for some reason they are always so messy. A 5yr could have swatched better than me lol

Additional info:
  • RRP $14.95 AUD
  • Made in Taiwan
  • Not tested on animals

Pros:
  • Lovely vanilla scent
  • Moisterising 
  • Light
  • Non-sticky - woo hoo no more hair sticking to my face!!
  • Glides very smoothly across the lips
  • Love the wind up applicator - good bye sharpeners!
  • Affordable

Cons:
  • NONE - it's that amazing! 

Overall: These lip crayons are fantastic, they do not disappoint!! If you haven't tried it yet, you should definitely head out and grab yourself a box, you can't go wrong with it. However, I would love to see this available as singles so you can purchase your favourite colour when they run out.

Have you tried these lip crayons? What did you think of it?

Thanks for reading!!!

  2. I've been searching for these and haven't come across them yet. :( That's probably a good thing since I definitely don't need more lip products. Great review, you're right, the light pink one looks lovely. xx

  4. It's a really exciting product for an Australian drugstore brand to come out with! I went against buying them because the only colour I'm interested in is Macaron, if only they sold them individually like you said :(

  7. I think your review just convinced me to want to get them! I've seen them around but wasn't too sure about the performance~
    I think I'll wait for a Priceline sale before I get them though :)

    1. I love how they're glossy, yet leave a subtle tint.

  10. Great review. Do they sell them individually, or as a pack only? I'm not a fan of browns either.

  16. These look amazing! and the price are not bad at all I really want to get my hands on them. Do they just work as a sheer color or do they stain at all? I just found you through BLT blog hop I'm a new follower :)
