let’s kick off the week with something extra pretty, shall we?
you might remember these pens of awesomeness by laqa & co. and the brand has recently released their latest launch, a foursome of fat lip pencils. unlike most of the lip pencils we’ve seen, these take on far less the personality of a balm or stain and behave more like a moisturizing matte lipstick. they go on creamy and opaque in wearable shades, each able to be built up for a deeper color application. they come in the cutest twist-bottom plastic casing with a clear top making very handbag-friendly – which is a good thing because you’ll want to keep them handy.
my favorite shade is lambchop, a nearly neon that falls somewhere between a baby pink and a bright fuchsia. i like the way it lightens things up and gives me a polished lip look in a couple of swipes of the ‘stick. i’d imagine the three other shades are dynamite as well!
perhaps the icing on the cake for these beauties is their packaging, which is too pretty to even consider throwing away. (just look at that box!) each box features the artwork of a young artist who receives royalities from the sale of every product. believe me when i tell you their work is gorgeous.
if you’ve got to get your hands on one of these four buttery shades, anthropologie has the whole bunch for $20 each.
