The L’oreal leMatte and laLaque lip crayons are limited edition, and almost gone from stores around here, though I occasionally see one or two lying are. Because this post is so late, I’m just going to post some swatches for reference without much of a review.
The first picture has one swipe on the left, built up swatch on the right. Pigmentation is excellent, but these can go slightly patchy. The new Revlon Matte Colorburst Balms have a similar texture.
These also have excellent pigmentation but texture issues – see how rough the edges of the swatch are? They sort of catch on my skin. They apply much better over a layer of balm though, and the edges can be smoothed out with a finger. The lip swatch looks a pit patchy up close, but it’s not too bad from a normal distance.
Here’s Laque-onic over balm & on bare skin, so you can see the difference – the texture looks a lot better on the left!
Also note that all of these, like most L’oreal lip products have a very strong floral-ish fragrance. It does seem to fade fairly quickly (though I don’t have a sensitive nose), but I can’t recommend them to anyone who is more sensitive to fragrance.
