When I first heard about the lip pens from L'Oreal, I was sad I missed it. So when they brought it back, I had to grab some.

I bought one from each line, Le Matte and La Lacque.
Here are the lip pens I bought. The first one I will review is from the La Lacque.

Thoughts: When I first saw this at the drugstore, I was extremely excited. I've heard great things about this line. I've heard it's one of the best lip pencils people have tried. What more can I ask for!
Here's how the pencil looks when you take the top off. I like that the product isn't sticking out and can get damaged from opening and closing the top.
Here's how the product looks when you twist the packaging. The color doesn't seem to match the packaging, but it does in person. I don't know what happened to the picture.
Here's a swatch of the color on my hand.
Here's how Choco-Lacque looks on me.
Here's an overall look on me.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it smells like every L'Oreal lip products. For that reason, I tend to avoid lip products from L'Oreal. This isn't as bad. It has the same distinct smell which I'm not a fan of, but it doesn't last that long. I would say I can smell it for couple of minutes. Then it disappears. For that reason, I can deal with this product. Secondly, this product is extremely creamy and goes on smoothly. I love how easily you can apply the product, and no matter what you cannot make a mistake. It's one of those lip products that's easy to apply without a lip liner and you don't have to worry about the edges. It looks perfectly applied. Third, I got the lightest color from the La Lacque line. If this color is opaque, I can imagine the others being really pigmented. Plus, it also doesn't have sparkles or glitters. It's a glossy, sleek color. Fourth, I love the color! It's one of those colors you can wear in daily basis that will look great with everything. Lastly, it lasted until I ate/drank.

Pros:
* Comes in a pen/cil form.
* Automatic.
* Smell doesn't linger.
* Creamy consistency and texture.
* Doesn't tug on the lips.
* Goes on easily.
* Cannot make a mistake applying.
* Opaque.
* No sparkles/glitters.
* Glossy.
* Lasted until I ate/drank.

Cons:
* Typical L'Oreal lip scent.

Would repurchase: Yes!
