I received the Laqa & Co. Fat Lip Pencil in the shade Palate Cleanser in my January Fab Bag. Before I received this lip pencil I was not even aware of this brand and so I started checking on the internet to check more.
About the Brand:

The packaging is like any lip crayon with a convenient twist-up and a transparent cap which makes it easier to see the shade. The twist-up portion also is the similar shade as the shade of the lip pencil.
I love the texture, its matte and at the same time really moisturizing on the lips. The color is intense. In one sweep you can get decent color and you can build on with the next sweep. The consistency is soft and creamy once applied and it lasts a good amount of time on the lips. It lasted for almost 5-6 hrs with eating and drinking. I feel that the good thing about lip crayons is that it’s really easy to reapply (you really don’t need a mirror).
The color is a berry with red undertones and is really vibrant a perfect color for fall – winter. The lip pencil has a minty scent to it and it also feel kind of feel a little minty on the lips (I really don’t know if it feels sense but it feels really cooling on the lips).
Overall I give it 3.5/5. I might start like it more as days go by!
