Upon receiving this, I thought it was a lip liner. To my surprise, it was more of a lip stain/stick/gloss in one. I got the color Ring of Fire, which is a brilliant bright red tone.
The application is smooth and precise, and is finished highly pigmented and glossy. I am not entirely a fan of gloss, because it tends to not last very long. This still stains my lips red, which is nice. Sometimes if I'm needing it to be extra vibrant for several hours, I will dab a bit of eye shadow in the same color over my lips, and found that this technique works far better with my Laqa color than with any other red lipstick I've used in the past. The color is wonderful, the application feels nice. My sample was a full size of one of these lil' lips, and it is perfect to fit in my purse and still last me a while. The only negative thing I have to say about this is that it does not work as a "quick fix lip." I honestly have to spend five minutes carefully applying it just right, otherwise I will later find it in my teeth, or smudged all over my face from when it's still glossy, but if I try to blot it, the color fades. So as a quick fix I do not approve, but if you have time to primp yourself, then this is the perfect red for that T-Swift red lip.
