LAQA & Co. Fat Lip Pencil [In Our Makeup Bag]
What It Is:
LAQA & Co. Fat Lip Pencil in Wolfman and Lambchop
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
I’m been loving lip pencils lately, especially ones with twist-up bottoms! No sharpening! They are easy to toss in your bag and are often creamier than lipsticks.
LAQA & Co. is a company that originally started producing nail polish pens and have now moved into lip products. This lip pencil is supposed to have a “smooth buttery texture [that] coats lips in stunning, glossy color.”
How To Use It:
This product is fairly idiot-proof, in that you simply swipe on the color, smack your lips together and go!

The LAQA & Co. Lip Pencils deliver on pretty much all promises: they’re smooth and glossy and deposit a huge amount of color! The only place they fell slightly short on the “buttery” texture; I found these to tug a bit when I applied them. However, this isn’t a huge inconvenience. The shade range is also pretty comprehensive considering the small number of colors. They’ve got all your standards, and they are all extremely easy to wear. Wolfman is a lovely, baby pink, and Lambchop is the perfect, everyday blue-based pink!
I love the twist-up style tube these come in. Sharpening any pencil product, especially chubby ones, is a huge pain that I would rather avoid. I’ve actually had such difficulty with sharpening lip pencils in the past, that I’ve simply thrown them out after they become too dull to use. With the twist-up function, I can get every last bit of product out!
If you like the look of these LAQA & Co. Lip Pencils, you can pick them up at Anthroplogie for $20 a piece.
