Prior to getting this "Pink Cadillac" Auto Lip Crayon in my TMSLA Press Bag, I knew Bdellium Tools as a makeup brush company that my friend Mary form NeonChipmunk loves. I personally haven't had any experience with the brand before so I'm going into this a little blind. These Auto Lip Crayons seem to be their first foray into the makeup game, which isn't all that uncommon for brush companies.
"Pink Cadillac" is one of sever Auto Lip Crayons It's housed in a black pen with yellow script and a color coded band near the scroll-y bit. This lipstick is in a chubby lip pencil format, but doesn't come with a sharpener for the nub, which is kind of a bummer since I like a precise tip. The shade is (not surprisingly) a very vivid pink that almost pulls a little plum. This product is supposed to glide on because of the soft, creamy texture which is enriched with hydrating shea butter.
I'm personally not a fan of loud pinks, so this shade is pretty "bleh" to me. As for the formula, it delivers on it's claims - it's quite hydrating and glides on, but it's not the most glide-y lipstick ever. The pigmentation is pretty rich and has a cream finish. The pigment does transfer, but doesn't totally wear off, during drinking and eating however if will need reapplication. For a creamy lipstick it has pretty good lasting power at a few hours per application. This lipstick has no taste and has a light cosmetic scent.
Size: 1.5 g/0.05 oz
Availability: Bdellium Tools
- Great pigmentation
- Easy to apply
- 2-3 hours of wear as a cream product
- Tip will wear down and blunt with no way to sharpen
Cruelty free: Yep! The entire company is vegan as well.
Final thoughts: This is a perfectly respectable lipstick. It performs well, does what it claims, but am I wowed by it? Not particularly, shade aside. There's not anything that really sets this apart from other similar lipsticks for me, but if you're looking for a decent vegan lipstick free of fragrances and flavorants these may be worth looking into.
