Pop Beauty Coral Crush Pouty Pop Lip Crayon Review

 Pop Beauty's new Pouty Pop Crayons are "extra nourishing balms that gently bounce onto lips, creating a plumped and pillowy pout  and leaves them with luscious, long lasting colour in a super smooth texture." These freshly released lip crayons are not sold individually at this time, but in a set of six 3 gram (.1 oz) crayons. This set sells for $25 USD (£18). I received a full sized Pouty Pop Crayon in the shade Coral Crush in my July Ipsy Bag. Pop Beauty products can be bought at Ulta, Duane Reade, and Asos in America, and Debenhams in England, this brand's home country. I cannot find information on where this lip product was made or whether or not Pop Beauty tests on animals.

 Packaging for Pop Beauty's Pouty Pop Crayon is quite cute. This pencil style lip product comes in a color matched plastic tube. The product and brand names are printed on the tube in black lettering, along with several black flowers. The base of this crayon twists to scroll the product up and down. A clear cap tops off Pop's lip crayon. Cute and functional, Pop Beauty's packaging is pleasing. 
I was excited when I received this lip crayon. Initially, I didn't love the Pouty Pop Crayon, but it grew on me. It seems as though Pop Beauty was trying to mimic Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, right down to the flavor. This lip crayon feels like a lightweight lipstick, its quite moist and comfortable, but it doesn't feel like a balm by any means. Pop's Pouty Pop Lip Crayon glides on to the lips, application is completely foolproof. I was really surprised by how much color is laid down in one stroke, when working with what's claimed to be a balm I expect sheer color payoff, but Pop Beauty's crayon goes on just about opaque in one swipe. Wear isn't impressive though, I only get about an hour of wear. The Pouty Pop Crayon transfers onto almost anything, luckily there's a nice residual stain that lasts another hour or so. The Pouty Pop Crayon has a slight minty scent and flavor. 
 Coral Crush is intense! This is a bright, almost hot pink with a coral undertone. I love all corals, but I tend to prefer more orange based corals, so Coral Crush takes me a little out of my comfort zone. What I really love about Coral Crush is the pretty satin finish, the sheen is very subtle, it can pass for matte in some lights. This shade doesn't have a speck of shimmer in it.
I really like Pop Beauty's Pouty Pop Lip Crayon. This isn't a perfect product, the wear time is pretty short, but I don't mind reapplication that much. I really appreciate the comfort of this lip product, especially considering how much color payoff it has. Coral Crush is gorgeous, a super bright pink coral. I hope Pop Beauty eventually releases these individually, but I think the set is worth buying if you're a lipstick junkie. You get a decent shade selection and the price is right (6/$25 = $4.16 per lip crayon). Pop Beauty's Pouty Pop Lip Crayon has helped me get over my awful first impression of the brand, I look forward to trying more of their products.
