MAC Laissez-Faire & Feel Me Love Me Liquid Lipcolours Reviews & Swatches

Laissez-Faire MAC Laissez-Faire Love Me Liquid Lipcolour ($24.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a muted, medium pink with warm undertones and a cream finish.

The problem with guys (and gals too, sometimes) is that employing a self-care regimen can be daunting or seem like a lot of work. This simply doesn’t have to be the case.
