I have followed Tati for years and trust and respect her, so I was eager to try items from her line. I purchased the two non-nude lip colors, and they have been decent for me; but I wish I had done the math ahead of purchase - their content is one-fifth to one-seventh the weight of most regular-size lipsticks and chubby lipstick pencils!
Multiplying out the cost of these, which are comparable in texture, color, pigmentation, and wear to better drugstore offerings, they are simply not good values - they're more costly per ounce than most high-end lipsticks. (The eye shadow sticks are better in terms of value - those I actually checked ounces on before purchase; and I thought the lips would be similar, nope.)
Nice shades but...
All the shades look wonderful and pigmented and the quality is great but I'm really disappointed Tati hasn't talked about the size and the amount product you're actually getting like she usually does. I feel like the eyeshadow sticks come with a little product at 0.05 oz but it's not as bad as the lipstick which I think barely has any product at 0.02 oz . A typical listick is about .15 oz. They remind me of colorpop in the sense that the products are great and you don't get that much product, colourpop's lippie stix are only.0352 oz but colourpop is cheaper and you still get a little more. I wish the price reflected the less product this contains even if it is travel size. A mac lipstick is more expensive but is .10 oz for reference.
Very little product for the money
Beautiful color, lasts all day but the applicator tip made me feel like I was using a crayon or pencil to do my entire lip. If you have larger lips don't even bother! Then $8 for 0.02 oz of product. The average sized lipstick is between 0.1-0.15 so conservatively at 0.1 this would cost about $40.... $8 for all three maybe but definitely not for a single. Can buy high end brands (Mac, lorac, lancome, nars) for the same or less when it comes to price/product ratio... So while beautiful and decent quality it simply isn't worth it! The price should reflect the amount of product given or I hope future products are average size lipsticks.
LOVE THIS COLOR
I just tried this lipstick for the first time, and I am obsessed with the color. It's the perfect wine shade with a slight pink/purple undertone. It's not too dark for during the day but definitely dramatic enough for evening!
To say I love a good red lipstick is an understatement, but this new one from LOC has become my favorite. It's not only the perfect color, but also the formulation is amazing. Easy to apply, doesn't feel chalky, but still has that great matte look. It's my new go to!
