L'Oreal Le Matte & La Lacque Full Coverage Lip Colors: Review and Swatches
For Fall 2015, L'Oreal has some lovely new lip crayons available to dazzle your lips. The La Lacque Full Coverage Lip Colors ($9.99 CAD) provide maximum shine and color and the Le Matte Full Coverage Lip Colors ($9.99 CAD) promise intense pigmentation with a velvety finish. To see some swatches of both finishes, click.......
L'Oreal Le Matte & La Lacque Full Coverage Lip Colors
Packaging:
The Le Matte & La Lacque Lip Colors come in long and thin twist-up/retractable lip crayons. These remind me a lot of the Maybelline Color Blur Matte Lip Pencils, except these don't have rubbery smudgers on the opposite end of the crayon.

Formulation:
La Lacque Full Coverage Lip Colors;
Super pigmented (they are much more opaque on the lips than they swatch on the arms) and creamy, the La Lacque lip colors have a nice and natural sheen for a finish. The biggest concern I have with the formulation is the slightly waxy and tacky finish. These colors cling nicely to the lips and last fairly well, but they don't feel very comfortable.

Le Matte Full Coverage Lip Colors:
These are matte lip crayons with a very lightweight and soft texture, almost identical to that of the Maybelline Color Blur Matte Lip Pencils. The pigmentation is very good but due to the thin texture of the product, these tend to accentuate fine lines and dry patches on the lips. Additionally, the colors don't cling to the lips very well, so they smudge and wear away easily.

201 Lacque-y Charm: Rosy brown nude, this is a very simple everyday shade.
207 Lacque-y You: Mauve-y berry rose with barely noticeable golden micro-shimmers, this one is super flattering and plumping.
106 Made for Matte: Bright true red, the pigmentation is superb but it's best used with a lip liner.
100 Matte for Me: Hot barbie pink, slightly patchy and a tad drying.
