Bold, longlasting and magnificent colour, these are three things that I love about the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Lipgloss. Today I share this gorgeous shade with you and tell you a little bit more about it.
I love a bold dark lip and that’s what drew me to this shade in the L.A. Girl Matte Lipgloss range. I’ve seen a lot of people using these and I really wanted to try one out for myself and see what the hype was about.
I really couldn’t wait to try this lipgloss out, but I am always cautious when I buy matt lip products as my lips are always dry and I didn’t want to end up with a product that I would end up hating. I was lucky to get this beauty on sale at Dischem for R34 and excited to start testing it.
This range from L.A. Girl has quite a few shades that you can choose from so you will most likely find a shade that matches your skin tone or just your favourite colour. There was a few to choose from that were on special and I decided to go with this beautiful dark shade Rebel.
Let me start of by saying the colour is absolutely gorgeous and it is going to be perfect for winter. It is such a deep, dark plum tone and will go perfectly with my winter wardrobe.
The application of the lipgloss I got is smooth and applies with ease. I’ve read that a few people have issues with some of the shades being streaky, but I did not experience this at all. I found that it is best to only apply one layer, else it feels slightly sticky on the lips, but this colour is perfect if you apply it like that.
When you’re using this lipgloss it’s important to wait for it to dry (which is quite quick) before you let your lips touch. If your lips touch before it’s completely dry, they will stick together and it will ruin your perfect lip.
After the lipgloss is dry it stays on, and I mean it really stays on! That is probably the only issue I have with this lipgloss, is to get it off at the end of the day. On the plus side it stays on for really long and I can eat and drink with it on without a worry.
