Get the make-up doo­dle bug

WHAT

Just in time for a back-to-school mood, beauty brands are chan­nelling that old pen­cil case feel­ing with a raft of new prod­ucts, in­spired by ev­ery­thing from felt­tip pens to wax crayons. Ad­dic­tively click­able, com­pact and easy-to-scrib­ble sticks will help keep those Sun­day-night blues at bay. WHEN

We first no­ticed this trend last year when Clar­ins launched its pop-up click­able multi-nib 4-Colour Pen, which is rem­i­nis­cent of a child’s mul­ti­coloured ball­point doo­dler. With its three eye pen­cils and one lip liner all housed within one handy pen to keep your make-up bag stream­lined (and fun), it was a sell­out suc­cess. So much so, the brand has is­sued an­other ver­sion, out now. WHY

With mul­ti­pur­pose prod­ucts trend­ing and con­sumers keen to lighten their load, it’s no sur­prise that when Cray­ola ap­proached Asos to cre­ate an easy-to-use make-up col­lec­tion, the re­sult­ing prod­ucts have been in high de­mand. Multi-use, yes – fun, ditto. But Asos also hopes that ‘the nos­tal­gia of us­ing a crayon will em­bolden peo­ple to colour out­side the lines – the way they did when they were young’.
