So I have been on the hunt for a hydrating, coral/peach lipstick in a matte finish for weeks. I am fair skinned with auburn hair, so finding a tone that matches my skin AND has the matte finish I so desperatly crave without leaving my lips dry has been exhausting. Every time I find a color I like, it has a glitter/shimmer to it, and the matte finish ones are either too dry or the wrong color. I had given up hope.
Then, today, as if you fabulous people know me better than I know myself, I opened my May BirchBox to find a coral/peach color of the Laqa & Co. Lip Lube, and I am in heaven. Its the right color, a clean matte finish but also the texture is perfect. The lipstick goes on smoothly, and feels almost like a light weight chapstick. It isn't sticky or cakey and it has stayed just fine thru lunch at my desk without reapplication.
Bonus: The crayon-like shape is very unique, and works well for me. I love the packaging and the sample size is quite large.
Love this color! Sadly, the sample doesn't list the name of the color. I'm hoping I will be able to track it down so I can order it when my sample is gone!
