I think Ted Baker's makeup range for Boots was spot on with the packaging. The ballet theme and deep purple colour is just divine. I'm keeping the crayons in the tin for now, but when I pop them in my makeup bag I'll be re-using the tin for hair accessories, or perhaps even beads. The crayons are a good size containing 1.5g of product, with a twisty end that enables you to show more of the crayon.

As you can see above I have swatched each of the shades on my wrist. It is slightly frustrating that they do not have individual names, but they really are lovely colours. I have never had a lip palette / set where all of the colours suit me, so Ted Baker's lip crayon tin really is perfect for me. I was actually expecting the shades to just come out as a tinted sheer balm, but as you can see they are more like lipsticks in terms of coverage. True to the nature of lip balms, they are very moisturising and hydrating, which I also adore. The lip crayons also unscented and have no taste, which will appeal to those who prefer unscented products - I can't say I'm fussy to be honest! I haven't found they have the longest lasting power, especially if you eat / drink whilst wearing them, but because the products are so lovely and easy to apply, I have no problem re-applying every hour or so.
Having looked on the Boots website for the link today, it appears that they have disappeared, so I am guessing they are currently sold out! I am sure they will be back though so I definitely recommend treating yourself to them in the future. The set is a more affordable alternative to Clinique and Revlon and although I cannot compare them having not tried the others, I can say that Ted Baker's lip crayons are fantastic and are definitely the best affordable lip products I have come across in a long while.
Have you tried any of the Ted Baker range at Boots? I also received the eye palette, make up brush set and vanity case (featuring bath and body products) let me know if you would like any more reviews!
