Helen E – Lip Crayon in Candy Floss
This post may contain affiliate links.
Helen E is a relatively new UK makeup brand, founded by owner Helen Elowe in 1999. I purchased a couple of their lip crayons a few months ago but haven’t tried them out until now, the first lip crayon I have been trying out is Candy Floss, a sweet sugary pink colour.
The Helen E Lip Crayon applies fairly nicely and easily to the lips and is quite soft. As this lip colour is in a pencil format there is no need for lip liners and it is really easy to draw the colour around the edge of the lip to give a straight edge. Unfortunately the consistency of the lip crayon lets this product down, it is not creamy and glossy like a lot of the other chubby lip crayons available on the market today and it gives a chalky matt finish which gathers in the creases of the lips. It also has an unpleasant sweet fragrance/taste, but on the plus side there is no feathering or bleeding around the edge of the lip with this lip crayon. The Candy Floss colour itself is peachy pink, you can see from the image above that it is rather pale.
Helen E’s simple packaging doesn’t give off an image of premium beauty and the lid of the lip crayon feels a little bit cheap. Having said that Helen E is a low-mid price range beauty brand – prices start at £10 for lipgloss, £8 for concealer sticks and £8 for eye pencils – so the products are all affordable. I probably won’t be using this particular Candy Floss Helen E Lip Crayon again, but I do have another Helen E Lip Crayon to review in another colour – that will be coming soon on Beauty Best Friend.
Helen E Lip Crayons are priced at £8 and can be purchased from Helen E. Helen E cosmetics can also be purchased from selected salons and Helen E makeup parties.
