L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Blushing: Swatch and Review

While I was at PHAMExpo, I came across these L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints at Lady Moss's booth. They've been getting so much love (in part due to their striking similarity to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks) coupled with the $3.25 price tag at the show, I picked one up. I was waffling on which color to purchase until I also saw Alyson/The Gloss Menagerie and another person swatching Blushing, a bright pink mauve. All three of us had very different skin tones (Alyson being paler and the other person being much tanner than I was) yet the color was so so flattering on each. That cinched it for me so I picked up Blushing.

Where to Purchase: L.A Girl, ikatehouse, Lady Moss,

Price: $2.99-$4.00 for .40 oz/12mL of product (price varies depending on the vendor)
Do they test on animals?: The company does not.
Packaging: The Glazed Lip Paint comes in a small squeeze tube with a plastic slant tip applicator.

Swatch:


As always, the swatch photos were taken in natural daylight with no flash. I applied one coat of the Glazed Lip Paint using a doefoot applicator.

Formula/Comparison:

The Glazed Lip Paints are a shiny pigmented gloss. These apply best with a doe foot applicator since it can really work the product into your lips. Using a lip brush made it apply a little too unevenly, especially around the edges of my lips. This didn't dry out my lips.


Although these keep getting compared to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, the comparison isn't apt. The Too Faced Melted Lipsticks are creamier, more like a liquid creamy lipstick. These have been compared to the OCC Lip Tars too but while they share similarities, the formulas aren't the same either. Despite the similar liquidy texture and peppermint scent, the Lip tars are more pigmented and dry down matte (which gives a longer wear time) whereas the Glazed Lip Paints stay fairly glossy. 


Wear Time:


I can get about 3 hours of good wear and after that it started fading from my inner lip outward.


Conclusion:


I like the colors in the line and how it didn't dry out my lips but I do wish the packaging was different since the slanted applicator applies too much from the tube. I wholeheartedly recommend applying it with a doefoot applicator. The wear time is also typical for a lipgloss/glossy product like this. I really love the shade Blushing because I do believe it's a universal color that anyone can wear. I'd say it's worth trying one out since it's so inexpensive but just don't forget the doe foot applicator.

  12. I wish they'd package it with the applicator that works best, but they were probably trying to save money. I love this color. Girl, you can wear any color. Your lips are perfect!

  21. This looks beautiful! I love the color and the glossy finish but I would prefer the finish of the lip tar because I want something much more long wearing so that it wouldn't be an issue reapplying!
