Love it or Leave It: LOC Matte Lipstick

I received the LOC (Love of Color) Matte Lipstick through Birchbox. To be honest, I wasn’t all that thrilled because the color looked so dark. I received the shade Glam Life, which turned out to be a pink berry color.

This is not matte. On my lips, it definitely seemed more satin than matte. That doesn’t bother me, but for someone expecting a matte lip, you may be disappointed. The color glides on easily and smoothly, and feels more like a balm than a lipstick.

These are really easy to apply, but they do come with some tricks:

  • Smudges very easily
  • Not long lasting
  • Stains skin very easily if it transfers

The product is very comfortable to wear, which I appreciate. It doesn’t dry out my lips at all.

I applied this one day before I went out to run some errands. I was gone for an hour and a half, did not eat or drink anything, and by the time I came back, the lip color was mostly gone except for the slight stain it left behind. I don’t mind reapplying, so this was no big deal to me, but I was a little surprised!

Overall, I do think this is a comfortable formula, but the product smudges so easily that I will have to say leave it in repurchase terms, but I will continue to use this one for now. 🙂
