LAQA & Co.

Birchbox Breakdown

Now and then, we come across a product that’s so darn cute, it makes us want to squeee (but since we’re adults, we restrain ourselves). LAQA & Co.’s lip pencils are one such discovery. They deliver concentrated, high-sheen pigment and come in a wealth of bold shades. Get five of their travel-friendly Lil’ Lip Pencils in this kit. Now that’s the kind of coloring box we can get behind.

How it Works

Formulated with a blend of oils and healing vitamin E, the pencil provides lasting moisture in addition to a glossy finish. The kit includes five high-impact shades: Wolfman (a pale pink), Fairyblood (a polished pink), Lampchop (a neon fuchsia), Pinkman (a hot pink), and Ring of Fire (a bright red).

How to Use

Starting at the center of your top lip, sweep outward in each direction. Repeat on bottom lip. No need to sharpen: As the pencil wears down, simply twist the bottom to release more.

Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, ethylhexyl hydroxystearate microcrystalline wax, paraffin, vegetable oil, cera alba, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax, isostearyl palmitate, cetyl alcohol, vitamin E, sucrose acetate isobuterate, phenoxyethanol, mentha piperita. May contain: lron oxides (Cl 77491, Cl 77492, Cl 77499), titanium dioxide, ultramarines mica.

LOVE LAQA!

I first tried laqa products in my birchbox. I absolutely love how low maintenance the lip stains are. Every shade is gorgeous.

Love these lip pencils. They remind me of crayons but they are so easy to apply and I love the bold, fun colors that work great on any skin tone!

Stays on long!

I went to a dinner thing that lasted about 3hours and I didn't ever have to reapply this color! Lasted through eating and drinking!

Lovely
Purchased

I bought this sample pack because I could not decide which color I liked best. Well now I'm up a creek because I love all of them. The hot pink is perfect for hot summer nights out but beware it is BRIGHT. The neutrals are great also but the lightest shade really washes me out because I'm practically albino (I just need more color). The two reds are my favorite and I plan to get them in the full sizes.

Pretty terrible
Purchased

Since I really like the LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil, I decided to get this set to try out the colors. It's horrible in comparison. It doesn't stay and comes off on everything. Terrible old lipstick smell instead of fresh mint like the sheer lip lube pencil. It does have brilliant color but looks a bit like heavy clown makeup once on since the colors are so heavy.

Bright!

I'm not usually into such bold colors but these are so fun! I got the purple colored one and it was great! Lasted long too. The only thing I didn't love is the chalky feeling it had. Definitely liked though!

Not quite what I was hoping for
Purchased

I got a sample of the lip lube in the June 2014 box and loved it, so I took the plunge and purchased this sample of 5 colors. I received them today and tried each of them on. Wolfman, which is the pale pink on my light to medium olive skin tone made me look sickly. Fairyblood, the shimmery pink, broke in half when I applied it and was shimmery and probably would work well if mixed with other colors. Lambchop which is a neon fuchsia made me look like a clown but it was entertaining to think of wearing this shade in public. Pinkman, the hot pink is by far my favorite of the five, its fun and flirty and perfect for a night out with friends or a date just a punch of color if you want to have some color stand out in an overall look. Ring of Fire isn't as bad as I thought, with my skin tone it came off a little more orange than red but after a while it suited the tone (or I got used to it). I give a 5/5 on texture and creaminess, 3/5 on product applicator (since the lip color snapped in half on first swipe), 2/5 on colors that fits a general array of skin tones...thus the overall rating of 3/5 stars.

Perhaps I will grow to like and manipulate the colors over time but if one isn't willing to be that creative go with a color you know suits you and pick that one from the full sized version because the lasting color and high pigment is worth the purchase but only in the right color.

Great texture and layerer

I received a sample of a Lip Lube and the texture (and flavor) is wonderful. It isn't greasy and thick - in fact, you can't even feel that it's on...even lipstick-haters would love this. My only complaint is that the color is a weird bluish-magenta, which may be fine for layering, which is what I've been doing with it. I can't imagine anyone looking attractive in this color by itself. But now that I see it comes in more colors, I'm buying the set.

lip stick

I love it, it looks great on and doesn't come off as quickly as other lip sticks. I got a berry color and it is not a color i would bye but i LOVED it on and i have not stooped using it.
