L.A. Girl Matte Flat Velvet – Reds

L.A. Girl Matte Flat Velvet – Reds

Red lipstick is such a weakness of mine, even though I tend towards the nude lipsticks in my day to day work look, you can never beat a beautiful red lipstick. A huge portion of my lipstick collection is still reds.

L.A.Girl Matte Flat Lipsticks really impressed me with their quality and they have quite the range of colours. The last time I stopped by a L.A.Girl stand I picked up three more…they were all some type of red XD.

So today I wanted to share with you Relentless, Runway and Gossip.LAGIrl Matte Reds Tubes

L.A. Girl Inspiring Brow Kit Light

L.A. Girl Inspiring Brow Kit Light

Who would have known that brows would day be so important to me and my makeup routine? XD Once I started filling in my brows, there was no way I could ever stop. I have used different brow products over the years and pomade has been my favourite for a while now, but it was time to lighten the colour I used again. I’m growing out my natural hair colour and it is very light compared to what I once had, so I have been able to try a few different brands and shades while I am trying to get my hair colour settle on one shade. I saw that L.A. Girl had launched their own series of brow kits and thought I would give them a go while I was on the hunt for a new shade. I purchased the lightest kit in the Inspiring Brow Kit series and was quite pleased to see it came with two shades.

Good Morning,

Today’s post is about L.A. Girl’s HD Pro Setting Matte Finish Spray. I have been quite fond of L.A. Girl lately, they have good quality products with even better price tags. I have never used a setting spray before in my makeup routine and there are so many out there, that I thought it a good idea to start off with one that would not break the bank it I didn’t like it.

So let’s have a look and see how well it did.

L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss Next Six

Hello!

How is your week going! I finally have for you today six more swatches of the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Glosses. It always seems to take forever to swatch matte drying lipsticks, because they last so long, they take quite a bit to get off and when you are trying to get on a swatching roll it can really slow you down. So here they other finally!IMG_8151edited

I am always amazed at the size of these tubes for the little price you pay ^_^ :3 If only I had better luck photographing them, believe all not this is the fourth product set up photos I took and I am still not happy with T_T live and learn I guess.

Bazaar and Fleur are great everyday colours, they wear really well and don’t look too bad if the middle fades a little. Rebel and Frisky are my fierce colours for work and look super glam on. Backstage and Blackcurrant were also a little patchy and did not wear as well as the others. They are gorgeous colours, but always surprise me with just how dark they are, so do not get pulled out to wear as much as I should.

Overall, they are all pretty good quality and colour pay off. Lunch time rocks round and they are all pretty much still in place, with no bleeding or colour fade. If anything I fight at the end of the day to get it all off. I found facial oil helps a bit to get it off.

I am quite happy with my collection of ten colours from this set, I don’t feel like I need to get all of them, but they have been great to try out. I would love for L.A. Girl to bring out some more pinks and even some greens and blues for their flat mattes collection:3

Do you have any of the L.A. Girl Flat Mattes?

L.A. Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipstick

Good Morning,

Hows it going? I have new photography light bulbs and have been taken a heap of pictures. I finally feel as though I am making headway with my pile of to be swatched, now if only I stopped adding to it 😉

Tonight fresh from Mount Tobeswatched is my collection of L.A. Girl Matte Flat Velvets. These exploded all over the internet a wee while back, but only recently made their way into NZ stores. I am so glad, because they have such a great range of colours!

I am quite impressed with the packaging of these, not too cheap looking despite the pretty price tag of $10.00 NZD

LAGIRLFlat Velvets BaseseditedLeft to Right: Blue Valentine, Hush, Manic, Poetic, Love Triangle and Giggle

I love the little bit of colour on the bottom so that you know what lipstick shade you are picking out of the drawer :3

My one teeny tiny little gripe is that they are flat top and when you go to apply to your lips, if you have it ever so slightly at the wrong angle the tube rolls back down -_- It took me a few tries before I got it right. Other than that they are pretty damn awesome, just keep it in mind when applying them.

So a note about these swatches, they have me such a hard time and were done over and over again. Blue Valentine is as close as I could get it to real life, but not as accurate. For some reason the lipstick swatches are pretty colour accurate, but my skin tone is whack in all of them XD One day I will learn how to fix that.

Hush

Manic

Poetic

Love Triangle

Giggle

I felt so proud of myself fro grabbing Poetic and Blue Valentine. I found my self reaching for the old pink, nude and red, but when I saw the blue and grey I thought no wait! Lets try something else, I really wanna go back for the black and burgundy :3

Overall, these are great! Fantastic colours, with 26 shades in total and wonderful colour pay off! Fully opaque almost straight away. I had no bleeding with any of these and they tended to stay in place until lunch time. As I mentioned earlier I am not too fond of the flat top and the way they can sometimes wind themselves down a tad, but they are $10.00 NZD each and are great in every other way, I can live.

Have you purchased any Flat Velvet lipsticks yet? What do you think of grey and blue lipstick?
