LA Girl product reviews {Part 2}

Last week we got into some of the products available from LA Girl, and today we conclude this mini review.

For lips we have the Glazed lip paint in ‘blushing’. This colour is very much outside of my comfort zone, a medium mauve colour that’s a bit brighter than I usually wear.  It’s supposed to be like a lipstick with a super high gloss finish, which I think it is. It’s very comfortable on the lips and it’s really pigmented. I literally dab a drop of this on and spread it on my lips. I noticed this tingles a bit on my lips and I just realised it’s due to the slight minty scent it’s got. Nothing overpowering. A good buy and there are an array of colours.

RSP – R49,95

Next up is the LA Girl lipstick in Rendevous and I’ve already chatted about it in my Top 5 lipstick post here.


This is the LA Girl High-Definition setting powder. So a setting powder is essentially a powder to set your foundation and concealer. I also find if you have oily skin, this may help to keep the oil at bay for a while…not all day, but it helps. This is a translucent one so it is suitable for all skin tones.

For weeks I’ve been so annoyed as the pressed powder I’ve been using to set my under eye concealer has been causing awful creasing. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong. I changed my concealer, mixed my concealers, made sure I moisturised…nothing helped. I did a makeup sorting session recently and found this pot of white dust hidden amongst everything. I decided to try using it instead of my pressed powder (from another brand) and this made a world of difference. I still crease a bit by mid day, but at least for the first part of the morning I don’t look as bad as previously.

For the price, it’s a decent powder. Really lightweight and it makes my skin feel sooooo silky smooth.  A negative though is that when you open this pot, the powder literally goes EVERYWHERE. There’s a lot of wastage. I usually don’t even lift that cotton puff off the pot, I just dab my brush on top of it.

RSP – Around R59,95. I can’t remember exactly what I paid for it.


Ladies, honestly….we don’t need to talk about this palette. JUST. GO. AND. GET. IT. NOW. Fabulous price, fabulous pigment, fabulous quality. I’ve spoken about this Nude palette before…we don’t even need to go there again. <3

Lastly I have the LA Girl glide Gel Liner in ‘very black’. This is a great eye liner. It’s really black and literally glides on. There are quite a few colours available and I keep meaning to go and buy a few more shades, but I swear I’m like Dory once I get into Dischem…LA Girl…oh look….Catrice….Morgan Taylor…..Essie…..Revlon….LA Girl….*what was I looking for again?*. Story of my life…..

The only negative with this liner is that it does transfer to my lower lash line or I find it smudges a bit in the corners after a few hours.

RSP – R54,95

I hope you enjoyed this mini LA Girl review. Let me know if you’ve tried their products and  also if there’s something I have to try that I haven’t.
