Budget Lip Crayon Favorites

I'm not going to lie...I'm pretty sick of the lip crayon obsession in the beauty world. It started with Clinique Chubby Sticks, and now it seems like everyone and their mom has a new lip crayon formulation. However, there are a few lip crayons that I think are actually worth a mention. So here we go, my 4 favorite budget lip crayon formulations...

1. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. I know these have been out for ages, but they legitimately are one of the best formulations out there. These go on very balmy but do actually leave a stain on the lips that lasts for hours-through eating, drinking, and even swimming (tested it out, looked great even after I'd been in a chlorinated pool for hours!). My personal favorite shade is Honey, as it's the best "your lips but better" shade for me.

2. ELF Matte Lip Color. These were my first venture into a matte lip look, and I have been really loving them! The brighter shades look the best, but all of the shades have a creamy texture that has decent lasting power and doesn't sink into my lip lines. These are also ridiculously inexpensive at $3.

3. NYC City Proof Lip Crayons. These are mega-glossy, super hydrating lip crayons that are so inexpensive I picked up all of the colors. These are perfect to keep in your bag for when you want a hint of color without having to look in the mirror. 

4. ELF Jumbo Gloss Stick is my last pick. These are the glossiest of them all, and also incredibly hydrating. They feel amazing on the lips and are pretty pigmented! I love a natural lip, and these are great for giving shine and making your lips look much fuller! 

All done! Do you have any budget lip crayon favorites I should know about?
