Hope you all having a wonderful day! Today, I am reviewing a lip product from the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint range. The shade is “Pin Up” and the shade number is GLG785.
Making their much anticipated debut, Glazed Lip Paints give the intensely pigmented appearance of a lipstick, with the ease and glossy finish of a lipgloss. Glazed Collection includes 18 of the most sought-after, trendsetting colors this season while providing long lasting, hyper glossy, ultra rich color to lips. This proven iconic product offers shades that range from nudes to brights to deep berries. Cool and nourish your lips with the added benefits of vitamin E and peppermint oil. The Glazed Lip Collection is an instant must-have that accurately portrays the color trends expected to be seen on the runway. A precision tip applicator is provided to facilitate application.
How To Use:
Using the tip applicator or a lip brush apply the formula directly in the center of lips and then blend to the sides.
CAD $6.99 (price varies across stores) for 12 ml.
My Experience with LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint – Pin Up:
Packaging: The L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint comes in a squeezy tube with a golden cap. The tube is in the same color as the lip paint, which makes it very convenient to locate it in your stash. The outer packaging looks very similar to the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, but the Glazed Lip Paints are nothing like the melted lipsticks. They are also considered similar to the OCC lip tars. They are quite close but I feel the Glazed Lip Paints are much more high maintenance products as compared to the lip tars, but like with the lip tars, you can mix up different shades of the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints and create your own unique colors. The tube has a slanted tip for application. Applying directly from the tube is definitely a bad idea as it does not apply evenly nor can you get precise edges around the lips. The best way to apply it is with a lip brush if you want the complete intensity or just smudged with your finger, if you want a soft stain. Make sure you are careful when you squeeze the tube. It is very easy to squeeze out too much!
Color: “Pin-up” is a beautiful pinkish-red which would look awesome on all skin tones. This is a shade which brightens up the face immediately. As shown in the lip swatch, you can wear it at its full intensity or just as a stain for everyday wear, even in an office environment.
Pigmentation: As L.A. Girl claims, this product is indeed intensely pigmented. You need a very small amount to cover the entire lip area with a soft stain. You can add a bit more to build the color up to its full intensity.
Texture: The texture of the Glazed Lip Paint is neither too thick nor too thin. It has the right consistency to spread easily on the lips but still maintaining the opaque color. It does not feel greasy or sticky on the lips. This product contains vitamin E and peppermint oil and it feels very comfortable on the lips. It does not dry out the lips. You might feel a slight tingling sensation when you apply it, due to the peppermint oil.
Finish: The glazed Lip Paints have a very high shine glossy finish, when worn at the full intensity. This makes the lips look much fuller. When worn as a stain, there is a slight sheen, but nothing overly shiny.
Scent: Because of the peppermint oil, the Glazed Lip Paint has a strong minty smell. I quite like this scent.
Longevity: The glazed lip paint has a decent lasting power, for being so glossy. It lasts for atleast 3 to 4 hours on my lips, by the end of which I am left with a soft stain. When worn at its full intensity, it transfers a lot due to the glossiness. Drinking/snacking will not remove the product completely from your lips, but you will lose the intense glossy finish and will be left with the stain. If you are wearing it at its full intensity, make sure you use a lip liner, because this product is prone to bleeding and feathering.

Do I Recommend LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint – Pin Up?
The L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint is a very highly pigmented lip gloss, rather than a liquid lipstick. While the glossy finish it provides is very pretty and feels quite comfortable on the lips, it is a high maintenance product. It is not a product that can be worn in a second before you dash out the door! You also need to remember that you have such a glossy product on your lips to prevent smudging when you are wearing this. They are worth trying for the intense pigmentation, though. “Pin-up” is one of the most beautiful shades in this range. If you are planning to check out this range, do not miss out on “Pin-up!”
