Addiction By Ayako - Lip Crayon in Le Mépris

I've wanted this color for a while and finally purchased it after trying out the crayon in Day Trip color for quite some time. They feel the same on my lips but Le Mépris is more obvious if I applied unevenly.

 I've swatched it next to Le Métier de Beauté 'Colour Core' Moisture Stain Lipstick in RIVIERA (left shiny strip)

Other stuff on my face:
Shu Uemura Face Architect Illuminating Moisture Fluid Foundation - light beige 774 mixed 1:1 with RBR sea of clouds.

The lipcrayon is very pigmented and quite neon in person, for some reason it doesn't look that way in some of these shots. Personally this color is very full on but my partner approves of this color so yay.  He didn't like that Shiseido Perfect Rouge OR544 Tiger lipstick at all lol.

Other than using this as it is, I like to use it to alter less flattering colours if the formula is nice.  I can use it as blush as well if I use sunscreen (can do it on bare skin).


  1. It IS such an in your face kind of color, and so striking. I dare not try another lip crayon. Seems too drying for my lips... sad.

    1. It does feel a bit drying yet it doesn't set on me. I will probably mix this before applying vs layering something on top. I'm not going to get anymore colours or even think about repurchasing in the near future because my ageing lips are being fickle.
