Summer is just around the corner and there’s something about the color coral that I love and associate with summer. I got a lip color sample from my latest Birchbox I wanted to share with you all. (Subscribe to Birchbox here!)
As you can see in the swatch, this lip color is sheer and light. Many coral lip colors are either too light on the lips to show up as seen in the tube/packaging, or are so pigmented that it’s almost borderline orange.
The lip color on my lips above is very neutral. It blends all right, however is not the best coral lip color I’ve worn. I absolutely love this “crayon” type of applicator, but the lip color itself doesn’t go on as smooth as I’d like. I’m not sure if this is because of the consistency or color itself. This product works best when a lip balm or lip primer is worn before using this lip color. There’s a slight minty/menthol-like feel when I swipe this color over my lips.
Overall, I’d still use this lip color. If I were to purchase another LAQA & Co. Lip Lube, I’d try a different color for sure. Coral lip color is tricky to purchase. I’ve tried several different brands and am still looking for the perfect one.
