Review: L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss.

Hi everyone!!! It certainly has been a while! My final semester for Masters had just started two weeks ago and coursework has already started to pile up like nobody's business. One thing that I'm looking forward to though, is finishing my Master this year end.

For my blog post today, I will be talking about L.A. Girl's Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss. I just recently purchased a few shades. So let's just jump straight into it!

↬ Iconic - a baby pink shade, or the perfect Barbie shade.
↬ Stunner - an almost-neon purple shade.
↬ Black Currant - a dark, plum shade.
↬ Frisky - a classic, blue-toned red, or the perfect Marilyn Monroe red.

I had some trouble putting on Black Currant as the product tends to "move around" and might leave certain parts of the lips not as pigmented. Putting on a second layer might help with this.

These lip products are very pigmented and they do not transfer easily. I actually found it difficult to remove them on my lips, even with oil-based makeup remover. What I did was use makeup remover tissue and wiped the product off, and used oil-based remove afterwards. With this formula, I suggest not smacking your lips together to transfer the product, like you normally would with a normal lipstick. I find that doing so tends to remove the pigmentation. So just apply on your upper and lower lips separately, or the other way around, to ensure maximum coverage.

I bought Iconic, Stunner and Black Currant at TwixBN (Instagram link here!). These lip products normally cost BND14 each and BND12 when five or more are bought. but I bought mine at only BND10 each as there was a special promotion on the most recent public holiday i.e. 15th of August. The girls from TwixBN were kind enough to give me Frisky on top of my own purchase.

Their service was superb. Initially, I was going to meet them to collect my package at either Giant Rimba or Soon Lee Lambak, but they offer free delivery to your house if you stay in BSB. So I had my purchases delivered to my house the next day, as zero cost! They only carry in-stock items and accept any special requests should there be any. I know this because I wanted to order Anastasia Beverly Hills' Brow Wiz but at that time, they do not have it in-stock and I was told that I could request for it if I wanted to.

So if you're interested in buying (more!) makeup, do head over to their Instagram page! Do leave a comment down below if you have any questions at all. I hope this post has helped you in a way or two. Thank you so much for reading! Have a great remaining week ahead of you!

  1. Hi! Have you reviewed the Gerard Cosmetics lipsticks? I love love love 1995 but I saw reviews about it very drying. I've been thinking of buying 1995 since early last yr and still in doubts huhu

    1. Hello! I have four of Gerard Cosmetics' lipsticks but I have yet to blog about them! I'm actually having a giveaway on my makeup IG and 1995 is one of the items in the giveaway! My IG is @makeup.gladyator :)

  2. I can't wait for you to blog about those lipsticks, esp 1995. Where did you bought yours? May I know the price? I found someone who sells 1995 and it is priced at BND 48. That is why, knowing the price and the reviews I saw online, I have to think gazillion times whether to get it or not cos I LOVE THE SHADE HUHU. Whoop, lenghty reply hahah

    1. Whenever I make a blog post, I will always mention it on my IG! I bought the lipsticks from Gerard Cosmetics' official website! I suggest signing up as a member so you'll be sent emails that very often contain discount and promotional codes! Yeah, many a few sellers price the things they sell quite expensive. I understand your hesitation to buy because sometimes I feel the same also hehe. So try signing up as a member! No harm in doing that. Hehe hope I helped!

  3. I think Black Currant or Frisky is my favourite! I'm a sucker for dark purples and bright reds! I have to check out TwixBN now! Thank you so much! seriously, these lippies look incredible! So pigmented, I love it!

    1. Hey Bash!! Yes, Frisky is beautiful! Check out the shade Rebel too from the same line. I also like Bazaar! Maybe we should do a collab one day!! Drop me an email, WhatsApp or DM me on IG if you're ever interested!!

  4. Wow, they're so pigmented! Black current is such a neat color, and Frisky looks especially nice on you.

    Great blog, by the way. I followed. ^^

    1. Hi Gabriella! Thank you for your kind words! ☺️
