Even though I don’t wear them as much as I would want, I am a total lipstick junkie. I see a color and I need to get it, especially if it’s a pink or peach toned lipstick. So while reading the September edition of Glamour Magazine, I stubbled upon L’Oréal Paris La Lacque Lip Crayon in Choco-Lacque. I was immediately drawn to the pink lip crayon because 1) it is pink and 2) because it shown to repeat Karlie Kloss’ makeup look, and I am a bit obsessed with her at the moment. I went to the store that evening and picked up the lip product.
First of all, I love the packaging. The gold lettering goes great with the pink tube!
The color is kind of a dark baby pink (if that makes any sense.) It says it is a shiny full coverage lip color and it is full coverage but I would say it is a bit on the matte side, which I do not mind at all. This color is great for a minimal makeup look and also works great if you want your eyes to be the main attraction.
Since I have somewhat dry lip, I always put on lip balm before I put on any lipsticks. For this particular lip crayon the results of this combo is gorgeous. It makes the color shiner and a bit lighter so you get the look of a lipstick without the sticky feel. I absolutely like to wear it both ways but I love how it looks on me when I put the lip balm on first!
There are only two things I do not like about this crayon. You really have to exfoliate for lips for a smooth canvas or this lip crayon will reveal how dry your lip are, but I would say applies to most lipstick so it’s not that big of deal. The second is that the top comes off really easy so sometimes I will find it open when I reach for it in my makeup bag.
Overall this is a great color!
