I can’t express how disappointed I am. As a dark skinned woman, the hunt for the perfect pink lip colour is tiresome and incredibly frustrating. Most shades are too pale or too loud. I purchased L.A. Girl’s matte gloss in the colour, Rebel as it looked like the perfect pink. In its package, the colour looks rich and warming against my skin tone. However, I was left feeling rather underwhelmed after applying the matte gloss to my lips. The photos I have taken do not capture it but this lip colour is much brighter than it looks and it’s also slightly ashy.
Once the solution had dried matte, I was left with chalky pink lips and there is nothing as hideous as chalky lip colours against darker skin tones. It’s not only the colour that left me feeling disappointed. This gloss is extremely tacky. When applied to your lips it feels sticky and will feel no better throughout the day. I’ve noticed this is an issue with many matte glosses but this was by far my worst experience. I can’t recommend this product, as it is awful! However, it does look gorgeous in photos so I might only use it when I am taking selfies; I have no intentions of leaving my house with this on.
