I've got my very first L.A Colors product last September when my best friend came back from UK. The lipgloss is impressive for the price! and I am pretty sure all of you know that L.A Colors gives you a decent quality of products at a cheaper price.
L.A Colors Sheer Tube Lipgloss spoils you with 12 choices of shades. As the title says, I unfortunately only have one to show you.
This is what they say on the website:
A moisturizing sheer lipgloss with a touch of color for an irresistible shine. Squeezable tube with felt tip applicator provides smooth and easy application.
So here is a short review on the L.A Lipgloss.
The lipgloss comes in a squeeze tube packaging with attached felt tip.
I personally don't fancy this kind of applicator mainly because it is not hygienic at all. Comparing this to the normal doe foot or brush applicator that is separable from the packaging itself, this has to be the last in my list. Plus I don't really like squeeze tube packaging. Mainly because the only 2 squeeze tube lip product I have (this and OCC Lip Tar) , both leaked! They leave such a mess. Screwing the cap tight won't even help.
Enough on the negative side, putting aside the awful packaging, I love the shade! I am actually pretty confused, the lipgloss is under their Sheer Tube Lipgloss but my Brown Sugar is no where near sheer. Not that I complain..just saying.
Love the shade.
The texture of the lipgloss is a bit sticky but it is not the type where, whenever the wind blows your lips will definitely catch a strand of hair. The scent is yummy too. It has sweet candy scent to it. Like sugar syrup but Tasteless (if you are curious..hehehe).
the staying power is pretty decent tho. However it won't last through a meal.
Another point to remember, do exfoliate your lips prior application. Make sure they are in the most plumplicious and well moisturized state. This lipgloss will definitely highlight dry and chapped lips.
Last a decent amount of time of your lips (without meal)
Not a good packaging
Highlight chapped lips
Not hygienic applicator (felt tip)
A friend of mine bought this for £1 which is considerably cheap after conversion but if you are getting this through spree I bet it will cost more. Comparing this to Nyx and Elf, I would definitely go for Elf lipgloss even though both won't stay as long as L.A Lipgloss. Do remember the swatches of shades they have up on their website is no where near what you gonna get!!
See my Brown Sugar(LG840) for yourself. lol
Here is what my friend got for me ;)
