Please bear with me as this moment I’m too caught up with work. YES. WORK. So I’ve been absent from blogging for about a month now? SO SOWWYY! ><
Moving on.. Following to the hype of Colourpop products, I’ve been intrigued by their eyes & cheeks products as they’re cream-based products which is in my opinion, most time-efficient product for times when you’re in a rush and just wanna slap on some makeup. I have to say, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the super shock cheek products (blushes/highlighters/bronzers) as they’re long-lasting, pigmented and most importantly, affordable. It’s only RM 43/pop (when Ringgit Malaysia was still at 3.50). However, their eyeshadow, I’m not too crazy about them. Most people said that the eyeshadows are in some kind of a moussy-gel like form, which is interesting. And most of their eyeshadows are glittery/shimmery, but even then, I found that some of the glittery eyeshadow texture is a bit rough and doesn’t apply so smoothly as there are chunks of glitter in it. But the color payoff is amazeballs!
Makeup trend nowadays are all about liquid lipsticks that dries matte. So many cosmetics companies are making this product, be it from high-end brands such as Anastasia Beverly Hills, Too Faced and Kat Von D to drugstore brands like Rimmel, LA Girl and Colourpop. The idea of liquid lipsticks basically just, well, lipstick formula liquified. Most of the liquid lipsticks out there have matte finishes just because matte formulas lasts longer throughout the day so less touch-ups are needed, however there are also metallic and satin finishes like the Melted Lipsticks from Too Faced.
But today, I’m gonna be talking about drugstore brand everyone in Instagram have been raving about, LA Girl. This brand was famed for their HD Concealer which some claims a dupe for MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer. I’ve zero ideas why they put the word ‘matte’ and ‘gloss’ in one sentence, coz to me it doesn’t sound logical. How could you be a lip ‘gloss’ when you have a matte finish? Someone enlighten me that their definition of lip gloss might be that it glides on smoothly on the lips. Oh well then that does makes a little bit more sense. Carry on.
