REVIEW : LA Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss in Fleur, Bazaar & Rebel
Hello again!. Okay, quick story. The second I read Noveau Cheap's post about this LA Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment coming soon on April and I've read that it will only be $5, I was really hoping that some of the online stores here will be selling them ASAP. I mean, come on? Who can't resist that price? With tons of liquid/cream lipstick with matte finish came out already with the price not less than $8, I'm pretty sure everyone was waiting for these.
I forgot about it for awhile, and when I found out it was on sale for IDR 72K on an online shop, I've kept my eyes on Dreamy, Fleur, and Rebel. But there were not enough swatches available! The pictures shown on the LA Girl's website are not helpful at all, and only a few reviews that have been posted. I was desperate, worrying about getting the wrong shade. Luckily, some youtubers already did lip swatches, but most of them have fair skin, not medium-yellowy skin tone like me, so I still left hesitated. Until Kathleen Lights uploaded hers! I know her undertone is different that mine, but she's my favorite, any color looks good on her, and I trust her recommendation! So when she said that Fleur is her favorite shade, I was ready to put it on the cart. BUT IT WAS ALREADY OUT OF STOCK. And the other stores that sells it set the price way too high. I didn't give up yet, I kept on searching, browsing for the right price, and then I saw it on instagram selling it for only IDR 65K and all the shades were available. So I contacted the admin, and straightly order Fleur, Rebel, and Bazaar.

- Fleur = A peachy nude shade. Depending on your skin tone, it'll look kinda brown on fair skin (like Kathleen Lights), and on me it looks slightly orange. But it doesn't make me look pale.
- Bazaar = A pink shade with warm undertone. It's quite bright but still wearable on daily basis. I think this shade will look good on any skin tone!
- Rebel = A beautiful dark berry shade. And it makes me feel like Rihanna! Again, I think any skin tone will rock this shade if you brave enough.
The reason why I picked Bazaar instead of Dreamy is because I thought I have enough pinky nude lipsticks and lip liners, I definitely don't need more. I was about to pick Frisky too because it looks like the perfect Taylor Swift kinda Red, but I don't wear red lipstick that much. That's why I picked one nude, one bright, and one vampy shade, and I love each one of them to bits!!!
It is so pigmented, one swatch is enough to cover your whole lips. It's buildable, but the more you apply it, it tends to feel a bit sticky. Also the flat applicator helps you to use one side for lower lip, and the other side for the upper lip. I think it's more efficient instead of dipping the applicator on and on to get more of the products (just my random thoughts). Don't be fooled by the word gloss on it's name, it's meant to be the texture that is gloss like, it's a liquid that dries down to a matte finish. It dries real quick and I suggest you not to move your lips while it's still drying, because it will ended up looking patchy. Once it dried, it won't move.
It's super long lasting, it'll last the whole day through everything (drinks, prayers, even heavy meal). It is transfer proof, water proof, and budge proof. Maybe after a meal or two it will fade a bit, but just around the centre part of the lips and that's it. Even if you re-apply it, it will still look good. And it does not suck the life out of your lips! I mean, it's not that drying. It's pretty comfortable especially when you already put lip balm under it. One last thing, since it's waterproof, a simple water based make-up remover won't be able to get them off, you'll need an oil based one.
I think these are still hard to find because the cheaper ones are always out of stock. A lot of online stores sells them, but the price range is between IDR 55K - 100K. So you have to be careful, keep browsing. Don't end up paying more if you can get the lowest price. I can't compare them to the other brands since this is my first ever liquid matte lipsticks. How about you? Have you tried this LA Girl Matte Finish Pigment Gloss? What is your favorite shade?
