New Giveaway! — Enter our Instagram/Twitter Contest for a Chance to Win a LAQA & CO. Fat Lip Pencil in Siren Song
Were you swooning over the red-lipped screen sirens at the Oscars or the SAG Awards? Are you hoping to find a new go-to lip shade? Then we have something for you ravishing rouge lovers! New York-based cosmetic brand LAQA & Co. just unveiled the latest shade in its family of Fat Lip Pencils: Siren Song ($18 at LAQAandco.com), a richly pigmented, decadently creamy orange-tinged red hue with a sophisticated all-over sheen. The LAQA & Co. Siren Song Fat Lip Pencil‘s allows for easy, no-fuss application thanks to the jumbo-sized, crayon-style packaging, and the retractable pencil tip makes sharpening your pout pencil obsolete for even greater convenience. The pigment itself, meanwhile, has a smooth, buttery yet non-greasy texture that glides atop lips with ease and stays in place for hours without drying out lips, creasing, or flaking.
In terms of the shade, I’d describe it as a robust and warm red, reminiscent of concentrated of red Chinese dragons, gourmet Italian tomato sauce, or even pretty ladybug shells thanks to the hue’s orange undertones, but it also boasts a slightly earthier, wine-like tint that makes it approximate this season’s “official” color: Marsala. Check out the swatches below and see for yourself:
