My experience with LA Girl Flat Matte Velvet Lipstick Gossip
The packaging is very simple. It comes in a metallic black packaging with an LA Girl Flat Matte Velvet Lipstick written on it in gold. The shade name is written on the body of the lipstick. The bottom of the lipstick is color coded very similar to the makeup revolution amazing lipsticks and the NYX extra creamy round lipsticks.
Directions to use:
Start by prepping your lips using a moisturizer. This is recommended as the lipstick is a little bit drying at the time of application although it has a velvet matte finish. Then start applying the lipstick from the middle of the lips and move towards the end. You can also apply it using a lip brush.
Shade and Texture:
The texture is a bit drying at first but is velvety upon application and does not dry the lips. During the application, it feels a bit drying and tugging at the lips. These lipsticks are quite pigmented and one swipe gives you an amazing color payoff. This shade is a true neutral tone red and would suit the warm-toned beauties as well as the cool-toned beauties perfectly. This is a must-have for every red lip lover. Using a red or neutral lip liner will give best results making the color of the lipstick show up really well and also securing it from any possible feathering. The edge of the flat lipstick can also double up as a lip liner to be as close as possible to the filling lip color.
Overall Performance of LA Girl Flat Matte Velvet Lipstick Gossip
This lipstick range is a highly pigmented but matte range and gives a velvety texture and feel to your lips and make you party ready anytime. There are 26 shades in this range and have all types of colors from peaches, reds, pinks, browns to purples. It is one of the boldest lipstick ranges that I have tried. This will be given a tough competition by the newly launched Maybelline Color Sensational the Loaded Bold Lipsticks range. All of the shades from the LA Girl Flat Matte Velvet range naturally brighten up the face courtesy their bright pigmentation and high color payoff. These lipsticks all by themselves give a loud and beautiful look and I swear by them for parties. They do not need any extra makeup other than a nice coat of mascara as your bold lips would do all the talking. If you want to add more drama, line your upper lash line subtly and lower lash line half way through from the outer corner to the inner corner with jet black Kohl Kajal. To finish this look flick your upper lash line Kajal to form a wing using black fine tip pen eyeliner and you are good to go!
The staying power is very good for this lipstick. It lasts for almost 6 hours without smudging. If you eat or drink something heavy, it will transfer a little. However, it leaves a beautiful stain on the lips. It took me quite an effort to remove it using a makeup remover while doing the swatches for this review. Using a lip balm after the lipstick leaves a stain makes it very elegant and helps keep the lips still colorful. It is very important to use a lip balm before application to prep your looks and make them healthy.
Would I recommend it?
Oh Ya! I will definitely recommend these lipsticks for their velvety matte finish and beautiful color pays off. But they are quite pricey and I would not recommend it for daily use. Instead, the Maybelline Colorshow Matte lipsticks and the Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks would be a reasonable option if you are not actually looking for the bold shades and want to go for Reds, Pinks, and Browns.
As it is said that girls cannot stop with one lipstick, go ahead and try the shades Hot Stuff, Frisky, Bliss, Electric and Arm Candy as well from this range and do comment on this post with your experience.
Stay happy stay beautiful <3
