The liquid matte trend is here to stay! I’ve seen a lot of amazing liquid mattes on the internet, but a lot of those aren’t sold here in the Netherlands, and that makes it a little too expensive for me.( I’m still hoping those Anastasia liquid lipsticks will eventually come to the make up stores here in the Netherlands.)
Today I’m reviewing the budget friendly version, the”Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss” by L.A. Girl Cosmetics. I love a matte lip and was dying to try these out. It’s a matte gloss that comes in sixteen colors. L.A Girl Cosmetics describes it as an ”Intense color in a flat finish for all day wear. The long wearing formula goes on as a high pigmented liquid and dries to a flat matte finish leaving lips colored in gorgeous velvety perfection that last and lasts.”
Sounds great right! Curious to see which colors I picked ?
- ”Fleur” : Brown/Peachy Pink
- ”Playful” : Bubblegum Bright Pink
- ”Instinct” : Bright Orange Red
- ”Secret” : Deep Red
They feel surprisingly comfortable, I really didn’t expect that. Most matte lipsticks tend to feel sticky or tight and dry out the lips. These feel great, even when they dry matte.
This has quickly become my favorite lipgloss! Love the color, the pigmentation is great and it’s easy to apply.
Love the pink color, but this one was a nightmare to apply. It looks patchy and can’t seem to get an even coat on, so it leaves weird lines across my lips. Maybe something just went wrong with this one?
A bright orange red color, is something that I hardly ever wear. That’s something that will definitely change now! So easy to apply, doesn’t come off after a few drinks and looks amazing.
A lovely dark plum red, easy to apply, doesn’t dry out and stays put, even after dinner and drinks.The matte pigment gloss didn’t come off until I removed it with waterproof make up remover.
Final Thoughts: These Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss are great! I love wearing bold colors, but hate it when they end up all over my face, especially when I’m singing and performing. I can’t begin to explain how great it feels to perform, drink water and come off stage with my lipcolor still fully intact, and not all over my microphone. I will definitely be ordering more colors!
I ordered mine at Boozyshop for €5,99 a piece.
