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
Left 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.
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?
