Touch in Sol - One Second Vivid Lip Crayon in #4 Tulip Pink and #3 Barbie Pink, review, swatches and Asian bicolour lip trends

Adding a splash of healthy colour to my pout is easy in the morning with Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayons. Crayons for lips, exactly!
Are these Korean lip colours good enough for dry lips and busy gals? 
Let my review show you...

One Second Vivid Lip Crayons by Touch in Sol are hydrating and bright lip colours
and the ones I’ve put my lips on are #4 Tulip Pink and #3 Barbie Pink.

THE PRODUCT: packaging

Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayons come in black sleek pencils featuring a “cushion” tip and contain 1.8 grammes of product each. 
They need no sharpener thanks to the twistable end, where the swirled design is, which allows you to pull out more product as you use it.
The cushion tip is a real surprise: uncap the coloured end to find a very soft cushion tip

The tip makes blending or mixing these “Lip Crayons” easily.

Formula and texture:
Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayon contains candelilla wax and a mix of natural ingredients such as macadamia seed and rosa canina seed extracts, avocado oil and Kyounin Yu (prunus seed fixed oil), making these lip colours at the same time moisturising and creamy.
The texture is overall soft so that these lip colours glide nicely and smoothly onto the lips, the scent is hard to describe but it’s light and disappears quickly.

Shades and finish:
Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayons are available in 6 colours. The colour selection might sound short, but it's bright and fun with two shades are totally crazy (bird yellow and marine blue).
The finish is halfway glossy and tends to become satiny within some hours. Pigmentation is good and colours are buildable but the result varies on the chosen shade.

Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayon in #4 Tulip Pink is a peachy pink with a touch of orange which warms it up. Brighter than a bittersweet orange, it reminds me of Touch In Sol Technicolor Lip & Cheeks Tint in #4 Mystic Coral but it’s warmer and more long-lasting.

Touch In Sol
One Second Vivid Lip Crayon in #3 Barbie Pink is a dusty lilac or a pale pink with a grey undertone. Technically, it’s paler and colder than a super pink.
It’s a cold shade and, despite it has the same creamy, hydrating finish and texture as #4 Tulip Pink, it’s an unforgiving colour: it emphasises every and each invisible lip line and skin flake.
Even if you’re sure your lips have been well scrubbed off and hydrated, chances are your lips can look drier with Barbie Pink.

Last note: Barbie Pink is less pigmented than Tulip Pink and it has a shorter lasting power.
#4 Tulip Pink lasts for 4 hours and leaves a lovely satin stain, while #3 Barbie Pink fades quickly, after one hour, especially on the centre of the lips.

My go-to shade is #4 Tulip Pink but I’ve found both lip crayons fun to use, indeed I like mixing these two shades together for natural pink lips and when I'm in a good mood… I embrace the Asian two-toned lip trend. Two lips, two colours isn’t wrong!

Hit or miss
? In my opinion, Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayon is a very interesting lip colour, despite the results aren’t uniform. Despite Barbie Pink weak payoff, I can still make use of it, so it isn’t a total miss.

The smooth consistency and the functional packaging are two qualities I like the most; these key points make Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayon a smart product for touch ups and quick make-ups, something that comes in handy while travelling. I recommend #4 Tulip Pink for the fool-proof shade and lasting power. Let's recap...

PROS:
compact packaging (travel-friendly),
twistable end (no sharpener needed),
creamy texture,
mixable lip colours,
formula enriched with natural ingredients
bright shades,
natural finish,
light scent

CONS
:

inhomogeneous results (lasting power and pigmentation),
price (when they aren't on offer)

Touch In Sol One Second Vivid Lip Crayons are available online at Glamourflare at the regular price of 8.50£ (10,03€ or 11.03$) but know they are on sale. 
This Korean cosmetic brand is also available on Amazon.com and at Sephora e-shop with a small selection of its products but I've found Glamourflare extremely fast and convenient for me with its shipping process (7 days to Italy).
So what do you think about drawing your lips with bright lip crayons?
