Birchbox Breakdown

We try to steer clear of looking to matchy-matchy, but this deep rust red hue of this lip and nail duo from the beauty pros at NYC-based LAQA & Co. has us wanting to wear it from head to toe. (And we're not the only ones: This duo is the same ultrafashionable shade as Marsala, 2015's "It" color.)

How to Use

A blend of oils and nourishing vitamin E in the lip pencil soothe, soften, and leave a glossy finish, while the twist-up applicator makes it easy to achieve a flawless lip. The long-lasting nail color stays chip-free noticeably longer than many other lacquers. Plus, it eschews toxic ingredients like formaldehyde, toluene, and DHP.

Lip Pencil: 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.

Good products!

I like these products a lot. The fat lip pencil is easy to apply, vibrant, and a really nice shade of red with an orange undertone. The nail polish is also easy to apply. It can be a little globby coming out of the tube (due to the shape), but it is nothing that couldn't be fixed by wiping it off on the sides. It definitely looked like my nails were done professionally - no excess dripping - and a great hue after two coats. It doesn't have the staying power of some other brands, but I don't mind touching up to have it last longer.

The one complaint (and the reason for the four stars) is that these colors are NOT marsala! I was excited to have some products in the Pantone color of the year, but these colors are way more orange than marsala (which is more muddy and brickish). The nail polish especially is a lighter orange/red which is nice, but not as advertised.

Not the same Marsala

The lipstick Pencil is more bright orange red and had to tone it down with some wine lip gloss. An didn't last long.

I liked nail polish more it's more brick color, the color goes on thin and smoothly ( I had to use less then I thought I need). Used a gel top coat and had not problems chipping or bubbling even after doing a bunch of house cleaning.

Just okay....

I was really excited about this, but oh well. The polish is a great color and goes on nicely, but the shape of the bottle and the extra long brush make application an even more delicate process than it needs to be. As far as the lip pencil goes, the color is completely different from the color of the polish. When applied, the lip pencil goes on bright red. It's a nice red -- almost the same as my go-to Chanel red, but it doesn't have the same longevity. If I hadn't thrown away the packaging for this duo I would definitely be returning it.

Love the color and lipstick consistency

First off, I love the color of the lipstick, though it’s a little rust-tinged which some people may not be able to pull off. It is perfect for the fall though, and the lipstick goes on perfectly and smoothly. Also long-wearing.

This is really nice!

This is really nice lipstick but nothing out of ordinary. If you're looking for a nice red lipstick I would recommend.
