L.A. Girl Matte Pigment Gloss in Dreamy

As a lipstick addict, I must say that I don't own a huge number of lip products (ok, I have to define what I mean by huge number).  And yes, I envy the girls who do. And yes, I want to have a big collection of makeup products but let's get real, I know that with a minimum wage and the fact that I am not going to use all these products, my purchases have reduced.  Also, I tend to buy affordable products and I am very pleased with the quality of some affordable brands like the L.A. Girl Cosmetics.

The L.A. Girl Matte Pigment Gloss in Dreamy is not a gloss; it's a thick liquid lipstick so pigmented I have never seen this thickness in a product before. This product is supposed to deliver a rich and intense colour to the lips, and it does.  It is long lasting, lasts up to 6 hours (at least on my lips).  I love the colour which is a brownish orange shade and although I am not a huge fan of orange lips, this one looks lovely on me.  

But sadly, this liquid product must be the driest thing I have ever used on my lips. OMG, I have never experienced such a discomfort.  As soon as you apply the product and it is still liquid, everything is ok.  But minutes later, nightmare! My lips were extremely dry, I used to lick them every 5 seconds to moisten them and I wanted this thing off my lips as soon as possible. 

But for the sake of testing this product out, I left it to see it's performance.  As I said above, it lasted 6 hours on my lips but in the meantime, it started flaking so bad. Also, it was extremely hard to remove, and I notice that when I I swatched it at the back of my hand, I tried to remove it with a makeup removing wipe and it was not easy.

This lip product is a huge disappointment! Have you tried any of these?


  1. I was thinking of getting this but not anymore. Thank for sharing.

  2. YES in fact I bought all the shades like an idiot and they all ended up being a streaky nightmare! I threw them all away.

    1. Oh such a pity, thankfully I ordered only this one.

  3. I haven't tried this but I always thought they would be quite good as the concealers are pretty popular! Such a shame!

  11. Thank you for your honest review! It doesn't really matter how great the staying power is if it makes your lips look flaky! Thanks for sharing.

  14. The color looks lovely! Bummer that the formulation was super drying! Thanks for letting us know!

  15. Great review! :)

  16. I am hoping one day I will have a huge lipstick collection *daydreaming* haha :) 6 hours lasting is pretty good, however it is shame that it is really drying, I hate drying formulas, so I will definitely skip it!

  22. Oh gosh, that does not sound very good! You can't get LA girl products in the UK anyway though!

  23. The shade looks really good, it's a shame that this product was so disappointing. I haven't tried these lipsticks and now I don't think I will xx


  24. What a pity, I've heard so many mentions of flaking for matte glosses since they've become so popular - massive shame as some shades that flake are SO gorgeous, like this one for example!! Have a fab weekend :)


  25. I'm currently addicted to matte lipsticks. I started having three and now my cousins give me more. Haha :) I like the color of yours.


  26. I've never tried their lip products before but I do like their HD Concealer! xx

  28. Aww such a shame it's not the best product as it is a lovely colour! I worry most matte shades would be too drying.
