When lip crayons started to become really popular i wasn't all that interested; of course, i was curious to try them but not so much that actively went out and bought one - i don't know why but i just wasn't all that bothered about them and then i picked up one of the Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayons and since then i just can't get enough. Whilst browsing what was left of the Boxing Day Sales in my local Boots - it was pretty poor, my local Boots is quite small compared to others so there wasn't as big a selection and come boxing day there isn't always much of the good things left. I did originally want to get my hands on the Ted Baker Lip Crayon set but of course they didn't have it, then i came across the Seventeen Lip Crayon Kit. A lot of the colours in there were quite similar to the ones in the Ted Baker set and at £5 i just couldn't put it back so it came home with me!

In this set you get 4 lip crayons; a mauvy pink, red, orange and purple fushcia type shade - my main gripe with this is the lack of names for the shades - it really winds me up. Other than that these are actually pretty damn good, they actually took me by surprise at how good they are. Ive tried a couple of them out and they apply quite sheer but they have really good colour pay off (seriously, my swatches don't do them justice) so you still get the effect of a bright colour just without it being really bold and in your face - i often prefer a more sheer application as it's a more comfortable way for me to wear brighter shades without feeling too on show.

They are easy to apply and just glide along the lips and they last for a good few hours too - i think this is a brilliant little kit because not only is it super affordable and the lip crayons good products, the range of shades you get are really versatile and there is something for all seasons - although that's not an essential reason for the items i just think its great that they've selected such a range of shades.

I'm really impressed with this little kit and would honestly recommend it, if you can still get your hands on it as they are brilliant lip crayons and it works out at about £1.25 per lip crayon, which is pretty good if you ask me!

Now before some of you comment with; what happened to your 'kind of ban' it is still going to happen but i had a seriously shoddy Christmas eve and i wanted a little bit of retail therapy (and i couldn't miss out on the sales) so it will start properly for the New Year!

Have you tried the Seventeen Lip Crayons? What goodies did you pick up in the sales?
