Shara Shara Petit Friend Matt Lip Crayon

I recently got this Shara Shara Petit Friend Matt Lip Crayon in the Memebox X CutiePieMarzia 2 Beauty Box. I’m a fan of Shara Shara but I admit they have hit or miss products sometimes however, the Petit Friend Matt Lip Crayon is all hit!

Loves this!

The good news is the Shara Shara Petit Friend Matt Lip Crayon came in the CutiePieMarzia Memebox which is STILL available at us.memebox.com so you can grab this crayon as well as six other full size Korean beauty products for $23 (plus shipping). Or of course, you can grab the Shara Shara Petit Friend Matt Lip Crayons from E-bay or online sellers as an invidual purchase which should set you back from $6 to $10 or check the Memebox site as they do sell individual Shara Shara products!

You already know I adore chubby lip pencils and this one takes things to a new level. The formula quite reminds me of a lighter, thinner NYX Simply Red Lip Cream! The texture is lightly creamy with an easy glide across lips and opaque color on the first pass. There isn’t any balminess here, it’s a straight light lipstick formula in my opinion right down to the excellent pigmentation. They call it a “matt” lip crayon and market it as a matte finish but for me it’s a lighter satin with a slight sheen applied. It doesn’t apply like a matte, doesn’t look one, nor does it have the finish of one. Perhaps you can dub it a semi-matte as it does lack sparkle or shimmer of any kind but needless to say the formula is very comfortable on my drier lips and isn’t a traditional matte.

The pencil is a twist up so no sharpener is needed. It has one of the cute Shara Shara girls gracing the tube. The shade I tried was RD01 Real Red which is a bright cherry red. The color pigmentation is incredible and wears for around four hours before fading to a nice stain.

All in all the Shara Shara Petit Friend Matt Lip Crayon is another nice chubby lip pencil to add to my rather huge collection of them! These are available in four shades so if this isn’t your shade of choice shop around as there’s a nice pink and even an orange!
