I have had my eye on the LA Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks for a really long time, I’ve seen American youtubers swatching them and I just had to get my hands on them too.
I’m a huge fan of the LA Girl Matte Lipglosses and I’ve been using those almost every day. I just love how long lasting they are even though they are super drying, being that drying on the lips have put off so many ladies from actually wanting them – that’s why it’s great that LA Girl released a lipstick for those who didn’t like the drying feel that the glosses gave.
I only picked up three Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks (honestly don’t know where LA Girl gets these long ass names from) gave my dry mouth just saying that long name. To be honest there just aren’t that many lip shades that I really liked but they do have a large array of different colour choices from purples to deep reds. I picked up two different red shades and one nude because I wear nude lipstick everyday for work and find that it’s just easier to wear.
The shades that I got are Snuggle, Gossip and Bite Me.
Now let’s talk about the formula… I found that these lipsticks are really smooth to apply, they do consist of shea butter which is probably why they felt comfortable and not drying at all. I love the fact that these are animal cruelty free which really is important in this day of age. The colours are absolutely gorgeous they definitely are super pigmented which means you only need to apply once to get the colour you are after. The colour on the caps make it easy for me to organize my lipsticks and the colour on the caps does depict the true shade that is actually found inside the lipstick.
I am really impressed with the colour payoff the only thing that really bothers me about these Matte Flat Velvet Lipsticks are that they aren’t long lasting – so if you were expecting these to be like the long lasting glossed then you would be really bummed out that these in fact aren’t they do last a good 4 hours which will last till lunch time before a touch up is needed just don’t go eating oily foods.
Besides the long wear these are a great buy! For only R59 I’d say they are worth getting great shades, great formula for the price you definitely can’t go wrong.0
