Mark Color Me In Lip Crayon Review & Swatches

Mark is right on trend with their new Color Me In Lip Crayons. Chubby lip pencils have gotten a big push for Spring/Summer and the new Mark Color Me In Lip Crayon joins the ranks in three shades.

Mark Color Me In Lip Crayons

I think Mark loses a few points as each of these are $12. Ouch. I think of Mark as a lower end brand that should have prices competitive with the drugstore or perhaps a smidge higher.

Interestingly enough it’s actually made in Korean and contains snail secretion as one of the top ingredients so you know its going to be moisturizing for those of us with drier skin!

Take a look!
