LAQA & CO Lil' Lip Review

Hey everyone!
I have a review on a product that I got in my June Birchbox. It is the LAQA & CO Lil' Lip. It is a jumbo lip pencil (I guess this is a "big thing" now) and let me just start by saying that I have very limited information about this and I do not know the shade (it doesn't say it anywhere on the packaging!) and I do not know if this is full sized or not. But despite that, let's get started!

The packaging looks like a pencil and it comes with a clear lid, which is great because it allows you to see the shade without opening it! This is a twist up product, which is good because it minimizes sharpening, but is also bad because it will get dull and the tip will make it less precise. It has no noticeable scent and taste. 

The shade itself (sorry, I don't know the name) is a blue based medium pink. It is bright and vibrant and a good thing about a shade like this, is that it will make your teeth look brighter (because of the strong blue undertones). It is pretty opaque and the swatch shown is one swipe.  

When applied, it has a smooth, creamy texture that feels very comfortable. It is also slightly moisturizing, although it is not marketed as a moisturizing product. It applies with a bit of shine and glossyness, but once that wears down, your left with the pigment. This shade stains a little bit after you've worn it for a few hours. It has good staying power and although you'll need to reapply after eating, it'll last for a good 4-5 hours. 

Overall, I would recommend this product if you are looking for a jumbo lip pencil. But keep in mind that this is a higher end product and you can probably find a dupe for this shade (either in a lip pencil or in a lipstick) at your local drugstore if you don't want to spend the money.
Hope this review was helpful!
