Lip Lacquers are a highly pigmented, extremely moisturizing high gloss color. They are a cross between a lipstick and lip gloss with difference being that a gloss does not deposit color and a lip lacquer does. A lipstick does not provide the gloss factor that a lip lacquer does. Therefore you get the best of both worlds. While there is transfer when kissing or drinking you will retain the color deposits making the need for reapplication unnecessary unless you want to replace the gloss effect. Our lacquers are come in jars or "pots" with a total weight of 5 grams. A typical lipstick is usually about 3.5 grams to give you a comparison. We have chosen to house our lacquers in pots verses a tube to give the wearer more control of the application. While they do not come with applicators we do offer a retractable lip brush that pairs perfectly with our lacquers. A very small amount goes a long way and the coverage is buildable. Most colors last on average of 4 to 6 hours , often longer depending on circumstances. Colors can be blended to create you own unique look or worn together in ombre effect. As you may have seen on Instagram it is a favorite of lip artists because of flexibility the lacquers allow you to "paint" up to the most detailed effects. In addition to being a stand alone product they also wear famously over your favorite matte colors!
