Lipstick crayons seemed to be the product to have last year, and it's fair to say that I jumped on the bandwagon in a big way. With so many brands releasing different formulas and shades, it felt like I needed to add lots to my collection, not to mention the fact that they're really handbag friendly - they became a really must have product.

The one I have been reaching for recently has been the L'Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in 'Dare The Dragonfruit'. This does exactly what it says on the tin... It's glossy, opaque, hydrating and super pretty, it applies like a balm and acts as a pigmented gloss on the lips.
It's the perfect pinky purple shade, which is completely on trend at the moment, and the fact that it is so moisturising is great for my not so soft lips this time of year - what more could a girl want for her lips?!

This really is a pleasure to wear, it applies smoothly and is creamy and light on the lips. Due to the fact that these are technically a balm, they don't have the strongest or longest staying power, but they're so quick and easy to reapply, it's really not an issue.

I'll definitely be picking up more of the brights from this range for the Summer!
