On Monday, affordable cosmetics brand L.A. Girl Cosmetics released 12 new shades of their popular and beloved Glazed Lip Paint. There are now a total of 18 shades, the six original shades plus the 12 new ones. I did not buy all 18 shades simply because I wanted shades I know I would wear. In total, I’m swatching 14 of the 18 shades, not too bad. To see the four swatches I’m missing, L.A. Girl just posted an Instagram post with all 18 here.
In case you have not hear of these, they have the pigmentation of lipstick, but the easy wear and shine of a lipgloss. Makeup artists and other bloggers say they’re dupes for Two Face’s Melted lipstick, but I disagree, they’re more of a dupe for OCC’s Lip Tar. But why are so many people loving these? One, because they are very similar to OCC’s Lip Tar ($18 at Sephora) and two, they’re only $4 on the L.A. Girl Cosmetics website. I agree, $4 for a lip product that gives this much pigmentation is a steal.
I do suggest using a lip liner with these because they do tend to feather. They have a wear of about four to six hours depending if you’re eating, drinking, etc. They do start to get a matte finish after about two hours, which I like. The applicator is very basic, expected for $4 and a little goes a long way, so careful when you’re squeezing the tube. I love all the purples’s and pink’s, even the nude’s. I don’t wear nudes too often as I love to wear color, but these I like. As a lipstick junkie and lover of everything lip related, I really love Glazed Lip Paint.
See my swatches below. I swatched all the new shades first, then the six original ones. You can buy the ones you like on the L.A. Girl website here.
My favorite at the moment? Seduce and Peony. ❤ Which one is your favorite?
