L.A Girl Matte Pigment Gloss | Fleur & Black Currant

la girl matte flat finish gloss fleur black currant review

I'll admit, I've lost faith in liquid lipsticks. It's just that most of them are so drying and uncomfortable on the lips that I no longer see the appeal of them. Why do we hate regular lipsticks all of a sudden?

I visited my local beauty supply store that I had been planning on going to for the past 2 years but kept putting off. They have a large selection of makeup and when I saw their L.A Girl section, I almost fan-girled. That's when you know you have an obsession with drug store makeup.

I settled for 2 shades from the L.A Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss range just in case I didn't like them although all the bold shades were calling my name. I settled for Fleur (dark peachy nude shade) and Black Currant (dark vampy purple).

L.A Girl Matte Pigment Gloss are described to be a cross between a lipstick and a lip gloss. Ignore the name. It's a liquid lipstick with a matte finish. L.A Girl claims that it is a long wearing formula and with a velvet finish. They retail for only $5 so they're promising a lot for less than most liquid lipsticks on the market. They have a flat rectangular applicator that surprisingly applies lipstick well.

Fleur is a dark peachy nude color that is a beautiful everyday nude for WOC. This is my favorite nude at the moment.

Black Currant is a gorgeous dark vampy purple. This reminds me a lot of that dark purple lipstick that was photoshopped on Rihanna.

Both colors are very pigmented- you only need two coats max. This liquid lipstick doesn't dry fast like Colourpop Ultra Matte Lipsticks so it gives you time to work with it. If you apply more than 2 coats then it can feel uncomfortable on the lips but you don't need more than 2 coats. They aren't very drying but as always make sure you moisturize and exfoliate those crusty lips. I get about 5 hours of wear with them and keep in mind it isn't transfer-proof so you have to reapply after eating.

I'm in love with these lipsticks- I love these two colors and the formula. For $5, you can't beat it. I definitely plan on getting more of these shades. These lipsticks are a definite must try if you want a good quality liquid lipstick for cheap. Oh, and L.A Girl is cruelty-free.
