Lise Watier Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss Pencil in Tender Pink and Melon Twist

Why This Should Be in Your Bag:

Every girl I know loves lip products. They are fun, often smell and taste great (don’t eat them though!) and can instantly transform your look. Seriously, look at yourself before and after applying your fave lippie; you get a glow!

Lise Watier is a niche brand from Quebec, Canada, specializing in high-quality cosmetics and skincare. Their Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss pencil is one of my favorite products from the brand and I’m excited to share it with you!

How To Use It:
Even though most lip products are fairly no-brainer (swipe and smush lips together, you’re good to go!), this one is even more so. It’s gloss housed in pencil form, which isn’t really unique anymore, but makes application a breeze. I can safely say I apply these without a mirror often, and I never end up with clown lips.

Tender Pink is gorgeous, light pink that barely lightens my pigmented lips. I love it; it looks perfect with every eye look! Melon Twist is a very light peachy-coral that I found myself constantly wearing in the summer. It tints your lips slightly more orange and looks great with a tan.

CC Rating: B-

I like the Lise Watier Lip Kiss Crayon Gloss pencils. The formula is wonderful: moisturizing and shiny, almost more like a tinted balm than a true gloss. It’s totally non-sticky, but adheres to my lips and gives me about two hours of wear. It’s a comfortable lip product and I find myself reaching for it as a “default,” because these two shades always look good.

My only complaints are the price and the design. For $18, you’re getting .10oz of lip product. That’s very, very little. I also find that I go through these quite quickly, because the formula is soft and requires several swipes for pigmentation. They’re not the best for babes on a budget. Also, I would much prefer if the pencils were twist up (like tarte Lipsurgences). If you don’t already have a larger-sized sharpener, you will need to get one for these. Lipgloss is messy and a pain to sharpen, with lots of product wasted.

Like I said, I like these. But I certainly don’t love them. If Lise Watier added a bit more product, in a twist-up tube, I think these could jump into the As instead of hovering in low Bs. They’re available at Lise Watier’s website and some specialty drugstores.
