Bright lipstick can feel like one of the most daunting beauty products. Not only does it draw extra attention to your face, but one false swipe or unflattering color choice and it seems like your whole look is ruined. That potential for beauty disaster is enough to keep even the most adventurous of makeup lovers (myself included) away from bold lips.
Somehow Laqa & Co. must have heard our lipstick woes when they partnered with us to develop this duo of easy-to-use Lil’ Lip fat lip pencils. These twist-up, mini pencils glide on effortlessly and provide a bright punch of color that amazingly looks great on everyone. And soon you’ll be able to try them for yourselves because some of you will be receiving one of these pencils in your June Birchbox!
To see just how great these colors really looked, we asked 50 Birchbox staffers to test out the shades themselves one day during lunch.We photographed all of them wearing both Lambchop (hot pink and a Birchbox exclusive) and Pink Man (sheer fuchsia). What impressed us the most in our trials was that even ladies who had never worn a bold lip before were loving the look—and ended up rocking it all day long. (You literally couldn’t walk more than a few steps through the office without catching a glimpse of pretty pink lips.) Don’t believe me? Just check out the pics below!

Another great find from our color-testing experiment was discovering that these lip colors are seriously long-lasting. Multiple staffers came up at the end of the day to inform us that the shades lasted through eating, drinking and a full day of chatting with colleagues.
Plus, from now through the end of August, you’ll be able to find Laqa & Co’s Lil’ Lip Duo exclusively in the Birchbox Shop! Which color are you most excited to try?
