Another lip crayon I’ve tested in the last time. Actually, I wanted to review it looong time ago, but then I decided to review some skincare products first, because back then I was only reviewing lip products XD. This review will be about Too Cool For School’s Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Crayon No. 2 called “Lost in Hawaii”.
As you can see, it has a very special product design. I absolutely love the creativity of the packaging. The crayon is packed inside a paper roll with super nice illustrations all over. And it continues inside the paper roll as well. ♥
The TCFS Dinoplatz Lost Identity Lip Crayons are available in three shades. A pink shade called “Lost in You”, an orange shade called “Lost in Hawaii” (This is what I bought) and a mint colored one called “Lost in Dinoplatz”, which is a color changing lip crayon. You can look up the ingredients and the promotional pictures on TCFS’s web page >>here<<.
The lip crayon has a transparent plastic cap and works by twist-up mechanism. This is the most convenient way for lip crayons in my opinion, because you don’t need an extra sharpener. The design of the crayon shows the same illustrations as the paper packaging.
When swatched on the hand, you’ll see, that the color of the crayon is not as pigmented as the crayon itself looks like. It gives a nice orange glow and has a smooth feeling, comparable to a lip balm. If you are looking for a highly pigmented crayon these crayons won’t satisfy your needs, but if you are looking for a natural hint of color these might suit you. Since my lips are quite “dark” the color doesn’t show on my lips like in the promotional pictures. It just gives a hint of orange, which is nice nevertheless. I couldn’t capture the color on my lips unfortunately, so I will only show you a swatch on my hand:
It really glides smoothly on the skin and you can see the shine it provides. This is a very pleasant light crayon in my eyes. It has a very light fruity-citrus scent, but I could only smell it, if holding the crayon directly under my nose. The pros for this crayon are definitively the design, packaging and the natural look it creates. I love to use it when I’m in a hurry and I just want a tiny bit of orange color on my lips :D But unfortunately it also comes with one downside: Since the color is brighter than most of our lips naturally are, it will show off any dry patches or flakes on your lips, so you have to exfoliate your lips regularly, or live with that fact.
Btw: Thank you all for participating in my First Bloganniversary Giveaway! Congratulations to June again!
