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.
