NYC Gramercy Park Plum




I’m back today with a post about my new favourite lip crayon – NYC Gramercy Park Plum £2.49. Lip crayons are my favourite kind of lip product as they are fool proof and super easy to apply. I only own one other, a Rimmel offering that I can’t remember the name of as it has rubbed off the packaging. Since I bought the first one I’ve wanted to buy more but I can never find a colour I wanted enough to spend the money. However, I have been looking through Boots and Superdrug for weeks now lusting after all the berry coloured lip products and I finally gave in. With this lip crayon only costing £2.49 I knew I had to have it! I swatched it on my hand and fell in love straight away.

As soon as I got home I tried it on my lips and loved it so much I posted a photo to twitter! I wore this on a night out and I did re-apply every time I went near a mirror as although the colour was still very much there on my lips, it did fade slightly which is to be expected. Partly I think that is just me enjoying applying the product rather than the colour coming off. I was a little worried that the lid would come off in my bag as it doesn’t appear to be all that sturdy but I am happy to say it stayed on tight all night whilst being bashed around in my bag. I will definitely be wearing this more often, although I have since added the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in shade 107 to my collection which may be my favourite lipstick ever!


Have you tried any lip crayons by NYC? What shades do I need to pick up? Let me know in the comments section below!

p.s sorry for how small the swatch is! I didn't realise till it came to editing the photos.
