GEMs Of Beauty: Crayon Creativity


GEMs Of Beauty:
Crayon Creativity

One of the most indelible scent memories of my childhood is Eau de Crayola—that pungent, waxy smell that wafted out of the box as soon as you thrillingly opened it to marvel at the goodies inside. I’m old enough to remember what a big deal it was to get a box of 64 crayons with a built-in sharpener—those were the days, right? And who hasn’t been delighted by the masterpieces created by our kids, especially when they gave us a few blessed minutes of silence as they hunched over a drawing blazing with color?

Crayons aren’t just for kids, fortunately. They’re a great addition to your makeup bag, especially for lips and eyes. Because crayons are usually thick and with a soft, forgiving texture, they let you do your lips in no time at all. They also make eye-lining a breeze, or you can smudge and blend them for your own makeup masterpieces.

Here are some of my favorites:


1. Clinique Chubby Stick Intense

These moisturizing lip colors aren’t just brilliantly hued, but they have enough nourishing goodies—mango butter, shea butter, and vitamin E--in them to replace your regular lip balm. They go on soft and smooth and yummy. Available in 16 shades, from Whole Lotta Honey to Supreme Sorbet.
