Laqa & Co Lil Lip Pencil | Review




Hey girlie's!!!

Last month I finally said goodbye to Glossy box and said hello to Birchbox!!! As I signed up to Birchbox during a certain time frame in October it meant that I would receive 3 little welcome gifts separately, one of the 3 gifts was the Laqa & Co Lil Lip Pencil in Ring of Fire ( yes I sniggered at the too he he), and as I love it so much I thought I'd give it a cheeky little review!!!

Laqa & Co Cosmetics aren't a brand I'm hugely familiar with, but after looking into them abit more due to the love of their Lip Pencil, I've found they specialise in lip products with a few cheeky nail polishes chucked into their range for good measure. 

The lip pencil itself is one of the chubby stick style pencils that have seemed to be everywhere this year and I must admit I do love them. Laqa & Co's offering is equally as nice as most I've tried.

 Ring of Fire looks like a cherry red shade in the packaging but actually wears on the lips as more of a juicy raspberry/fuchsia shade, the reason I say juicy as it really does feel juicy on the lips as it has a nice glossy shine but without the stickiness of a gloss, the pigmentation is  also fab, but its the staying power that really makes this little lip pencil stand out, when the shine eventually wears off you are left with what I can only explain to be a moisturising stain on the lips, it isn't drying and doesn't budge for a good 6 or so hours and that's with eating and drinking, the only downside is that when the colour eventually starts to wear off it doesn't wear off evenly therefore the contours of your lips are left with what looks like lip liner, although if my lips are quite moisturised on that particular day then its not quite as bad.

Overall I do really like Laqa & Co's Lip Pencil, I love how it's long lasting, moisturising and the colour is lovely and I'd definitely be interested in trying out some other shades in their collection too. Birchbox actually sent me the Lil Lip Pencil which is the miniature version of their Fat Lip Pencil which retails for £14.00 each.

Have you tried any lip products from Laqa & Co??? I'd love to know.

  1. Gorgeous shade, looks lovely on. I'm not so keen on the packaging if I'm honest, I'm never a fan of white packaging!

  3. The shade is so pretty! I got more of like a muted rose colour, which suits me down to the ground. Birchbox have really been the box to beat lately.
