|From clockwise: LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints in Coy, Hot Mess, Baby Doll, Bombshell|
Everyone has been raving about the LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints so I had to check them out for myself. I purchased them in four shades: Coy, Hot Mess, Babydoll and Bombshell. These lip paints are like a lipstick and lip gloss hybrid. They are full coverage with a glossy finish. Very similar to the lip tars by OCC except that the lip paints have more of a glossy finish. I also like the minty scent of the product. I hate obnoxious fruity smells with lip products so this was a nice touch.
Coy: This is a lavender color and the easiest to work out of the four. It applied easily straight from the tube and the color was really opaque. (BTW: This is a great dupe for OCC "Rollergirl")
Hot Mess: Is an orange-y/coral color. This color was kind of messy to apply straight from the tube. I used my finger to spread the product on my lips.
Babydoll: Is a light, cool-toned pink. This color is not forgiving on dryness so be sure to have those puckers exfoliated and moisturized. Otherwise it won't apply evenly.
Bombshell: Is a bright fuschia. I love bright pinks and this does not disappoint. Like Hot Mess, It is easier to apply the product with your finger or a brush.
The only thing I don't like about the lip paints is the applicator. I feel like it should have had more of a brush than just a plastic tip. I feel like it would make application easier. Or a little brush should have been included with the lip paints but for the price, I'm not really complaining. Plus, they're easy to apply with your finger. Minus Babydoll, I like the formula and the scent is nice and minty.
I purchased the LA Girl Lip Paints at ikatehouse. They were priced at $2.99 USD. I have seen them averaging between $2.99-4.50 USD.
Pros: inexpensive, clean scent, range of shades, full coverage, great pigmentation, glossy finish.
Cons: some shades apply unevenly, can be a little messy.
Final Verdict: Get em!
