The Beauty Bargain #12| L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Elude

It’s definitely been a while since I’ve done one of these Beauty Bargain posts; I suppose it’s because my focus has not been on drugstore beauty and more particularly, I’ve been trying to avoid drugstore overspending – and just spending in general – so although I have a good number of unreviewed drugstore products in my collection, I have not been focused on reviewing them. However, today this is going to change. The L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint in GLG788 Elude ($4 US/ $6 CDN) was one of the many products that I purchased months and months ago as part of that lip buying binge on sale and despite multiple promises to review the purchases in entirety, they have been left in my acrylic drawer untalked about.

The neutral nudey-pink has a nice opaque and comfortable, non-sticky balmy gloss formulation and it impresses me, even with the high standards and general hatred of gloss that I have. Impressively, the formula is actually lightweight but moisturizing on the lips.It says something that the only complaints that I can type are that the subtle peppermint oil used to fragrance the gloss could potentially be unnecessarily irritating and that the comfortable formula is not as long lasting as it claims.

This product is both among the most affordable at the drugstore and easily available, here at most Lawton’s Drugs in Canada and goes on sale frequently – the reason I picked it up in the first place – and comes in a wide assortment of colours. As with my other favourite lip product, this glides over dry and flaky patches like a champ. On an ending note, please excuse how weirdly yellow my undereyes and chin look below – they certainly did not look like that in real life…

  1. You lucky duck that you have Lawton’s! I went to a Lawton’s in Halifax and I was amazed they have Milani and L.A. Girl and other brands we don’t get here in Ontario! I have not seen L.A. Girl at ALL in person here in Toronto… 😦
    This shade looks really lovely on you though, and it sounds like the formula is really good too. 🙂

    1. That sucks about the Lawton’s – I suppose the only benefit of Halifax beauty shopping is our abundance of Lawton’s and access to these brands. I would kill for being near a Holts that stocks high end brands, especially since the news about Charlotte Tilbury coming! And thanks for the compliment 🙂
