LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints - Review

Ello Lovelies!

There is something about USA makeup that gets my heart all aflutter. Any beauty addict will know the feeling of seeing something raved about online and not being to get your hands on it in your country. The LA Glazed Lip Paints were no exception. After seeing countless rave reviews about these i just knew i had to get my paws on them, so a quick google search later i managed to pick up the entire set! These do range quite a bit in price on eBay depending where you get them from and average between £4-£6 each which isn't too bad. I paid £17 for the entire set including delivery (sorry i can't seem to find the same listing now!) so i was pretty darn chuffed!

With 6 shades to choose from there really is something for nearly everyone in this range, although a nude or two would be a great addition to the collection. They've been compared a lot to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks but sadly other than their packaging their similarities end there. These remind me more of OCC Lip Tars as the scents are near enough dead on, although the LA Girl offering packs ever so slightly less of a punch in pigmentation. To me these are more like extremely pigmented, long wearing glosses. The applicator is a plastic tip and honestly is pretty useless for the product so i like to use a lip brush to make application a lot less messy!

Wear time i get around 4 hours of wear before i feel the need to touch up but they are very comfortable on the lips. I tend to use a clear lip liner with these too just the seal the edges to prevent feathering but that's something i now do with most of my lip products. We all know that I'm a huge fusspot when it comes to glosses and they aren't something i tend to reach for often. But so far these have been my most reached for lippies for the last few weeks. I think I'm well and truly off my matte kick for now and am thoroughly enjoying a plumper, glossier looking lip like these beauties give.

All six colours are absolutely stunning and its a near impossible task to pick a favourite. But for sheer ease of wear I've been reaching for Babydoll the most out of the 6 with my boring ol' winged liner looks that tend to do often. I've not worn the gorgeous orange Hot Mess as of yet but to me it looks like the perfect orange shade, lets just hope it doesn't make my teeth look gross like most oranges do on me. Oh and Coy, all you purple lovers can lust after this one. It is an absolutely stunning purple and one I've actually been brave enough to wear a few times lately. I'm pretty much in love with this range!

Overall these beauties have pretty much converted me to a more glossy finished lip. The colours are beautiful and the formula is spot on considering their price point at just $4 in the USA. Another plus is that LA Girl are completely cruelty free. These are now up there with some of my favourite drugstore lip products I'm enjoying them that much!
Have you tried any of the LA Girl Glazed Lip Paints?

  1. If they were matte I would instantly order a bunch but not too sure about shiny finish.

  2. These are so pretty! I would've loved to see a nude shade in the collection. I can see myself buying a few of those pink colours though!

  4. Oh wow. So bright! I quite like that they last about 4 hours, that's a quick bathroom break for me!
