Crayon-style lipsticks have been around for a while, and you and I know that. But it doesn’t stop me from craning my neck at the next new one to hit the counters, because I happen to quite enjoy using these sort of lip products. I’m less enamoured with the ones I have to sharpen than I am with retractable crayon versions.
I read about the Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur lipsticks months before they became available here in Malaysia. When I first enquired, I was told that strangely, we were only getting ours later in the year as opposed to other countries who got theirs earlier. So there are many many posts out about it now, if you want to read a different viewpoint!
Now, you can say that Chanel is a little late to the party. Crayon lipsticks have been done over and over ad nauseum from department store brands to pharmacy/drugstore brands. But release one they did, anyway! I like that – it’s like Chanel just said, “Hey, we know this is something that’s done to death, but let’s just do it anyway!”
To be fair to them, they did do a pretty good job of the Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur lipsticks. But there were one or two things I felt might have made these excellent as opposed to just good 🙂
