L’Oreal recently launched new Color Riche La Lacque and Le Matte Lip pens. I also picked up a few shades from these ranges and today I am reviewing the La Lacque pen in the shade Lacque-y You. Read on to find out more.
$9.99; Prices vary from store to store.
Product Description :
Introducing Colour Riche Le Matte & La Lacque, the newest format in lipcolor. The sleek, sophisticated pen offers highly pigmented color that glides on effortlessly in one precise stroke. Available in 2 iconic finishes, creamy Matte & smooth Lacquer. Use it anywhere, anytime – it’s the newest makeup designer must-have.
My experience with L’Oreal Lacque-y You Color Riche La Laque Pen:
Packaging: The lip pen comes in a slender plastic pen format. It is retractable and you don’t need to bother about a sharpener. The packaging is bright and coincides with the color of the lip pen.
The tip of the lip pen is oval shaped and that makes the application precise.
Shade / Pigmentation: Lacque-y You is a gorgeous red shade with slightly brown undertones. This is a beautiful shade which adds just the right amount of pop to the face. It does not look over the top at all and is a red which I am sure anyone can rock. The lip pen is decently pigmented and covers the lips in a single swipe. Swiping it multiple times does not make the look cake-y.
Texture / Finish / Lasting Power:
The formula is creamy but still the lip pen tugs slightly on the lips. But it is not something too bad. The finish is glossy and imparts a nice shine to the lips.
The finish of the lip stick is a bit weird. It feels little sticky and clings to the lips. But, it is not too uncomfortable. It does not dry out the lips. The lipstick has a strong vanilla smell and those of you who do not like fragrance in their cosmetics will not like it. The staying power of the lipstick is quite good at around 5-6 hours. It survives light meals and snacking. It leaves behind a nice stain on the lips.
Pros of L’Oreal Lacque-y You Color Riche La Laque Pen:
• Beautiful red shade
• Gorgeous glossy finish
• Oval shaped tip makes application easy
• Strong pigmentation
• Good staying power
• Does not dry out lips
• Attractive and travel friendly packaging
Cons of L’Oreal Lacque-y You Color Riche La Laque Pen :
• Tugs slightly on the lips
• Feels a bit sticky on the lips
• Strong vanilla fragrance might be a put off for some
