The LOC Collection


Aren’t my lips just so sad without lipstick!?

If you missed it, I tried on all 3 shades of the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipsticks from Birchbox over on Birchbox’s Instagram Stories a few weeks ago! It was fun to see all the shades on my skin tone. The two other colors besides Playful are quite moody and intense, so I think it’s a good trio to give you a variety!

The finish is matte and vibrant. There’s nothing sheer about these lipsticks! They wear well, and if you prefer a shiny look you can very easily top them with gloss!

Let’s start with Playful.

It’s a rosy pink with a touch of coral! I love how easy it is to wear!

Next up is Rose to the Occasion. It’s a bit plum and dark, but I have to admit I really liked it!

Finally, we have Color Me Courtney. I think I do better in brighter reds versus a rich deep red like this, but a lot of skin tones can wear this shade and look stunning!

Have you tried any of the shades yet? If you subscribe to Birchbox using THIS link, you’ll get Playful as a free gift!

    The deep red looks really good on you, but for myself, I don’t dare go so bold! (one day!)

    That “playful” colour looks stunning! So beautiful and it suits you really well. And I really like “color me courtney” as well, that’s my kind of shade haha

    Is Playful similar to Burt’s Bees Blush Basin?
