Hey everyone ! I know this is like a past holiday set , and I probably should’ve review it the year I got it. But it took me forever to try all these colors and finishes . I have since thrown the box away but at least I took these pictures before. And yeah this is going to be a super picture heavy post.
So sadly they don’t really lable the shades or really give any info on them aside from the ingredients. I was pleasently surprised with some of the colors. They’re quite pigmented and have pretty decent wear time .
And I could not get a decent picture that didn’t reflect. But here’s all the colors on my desk.
There’s kind of nice assortment of everyday colors. My favorites being the coral, peach, pinks and one of the plums. Also a few of these were dupes for Fenty Cupcakin’ and Too Faced Melted Chihuahua .
So I did some swatches, they weren’t the best in my opinion, as some were kind of sheer . They honestly look better on the lips .
The shimmers were definitely more sheer, the coral pink is actually really nice though, it has really bright shimmer. I’ll show you what that looks on the lips later.
The solid glosses swatched alot better , I was surprised with how pigmented the plum, cherry and coral were. The Coral and peach being my favorite shades that I quite a bit. A bit about the formula , it’s got a gel like consistency, and depending on the color can either be full coverage or a bit sheer, plus some shades appear patchy but once they set on the lips they kind of balance out. It’s a pretty interesting formula. And the brighter or darker shades do leave a slight stain. Some of the shimmer glosses had to be applied more often. Mainly the lightest white pink shade.
This one works well as a really nice sheer , look . It’s a bit streaky but not too bad from far away.
Sandy sheer shade
This one in my opinion worked a bit better as a sheer shade than the light pink . It’s a bit more natural and reflects better.
The next one I really liked is a sort of pastel bubblegum shade .
Here it kind of shows lip lines but nothing too extreme .
Plus it goes nice with glam eyes ! I really like using this shade .
Now on the the super sheer pink . I was surprised as the tube is a lot darker, but it’s not as pigmented as the bubblegum pink.
I held up the tube to show what I mean . It just kind of blends in with my natural lip color .
I don’t even remember which shade this was . It was pink but not sure which one . And it’s very sheer, up close and with the full face pics . So perfect for when you just want shine.
Another random shimmer ! This one is a bit more shimmery than the rest though.
You can kind of see the small glitter on my lips here .
Here’s my favorite of the shimmer glosses :
This one up close you can hot pink and orange glitter , it’s a pretty nice effect . Plus it reflects color really nice
And finally the last shimmer shade :
This one is actually really nice , it’s one of the more glitter shades . Not as bright as the last but still really shiny.
And sadly all my progress for my post was deleted , so I had to start over again. So I’ll try to keep this quick as there are 8 more shades to go through. So I’ll start with my favorites.
This one is more pale pink but it shows up nice and has decent coverage.
It’s a pretty nice subtle shade.
And One of my favorites ! This is nice coral bubblegum shade .
This one may be favorite out of the whole set.
Here’s the more cool toned cupcake pink.
And now for the light peach shade.
I was surprised at how well these cover and reflect light.
Now for the bolder shades:
The first being the red cherry shade
This is a pretty nice color. i don’t have to many lip colors this shade either. Mainly because I like wearing them with blonde or silver hair.
It looks more red here than close up.
And now lets check out the bright magenta shade. this one surprised me as it looks more red in the tube.
I may start wearing this one more often.
And another surprise is this brown shade. Well it was more brown in the tube but on the lips it’s more of a pink toned color. It reminds me of Too Faced Melted Chihuahua. I wonder if that shade is still available.
Also again really good coverage.
And finally this nice plum shade .
This one is really nice and it’s a bit goopy , but thats okay. It’s super bright.
Also I forgot to mention these are scent really nice. they smell like a mix of chocolate or vanilla. can’t really decide which one I smell more.
Well let me know what you think. Someone gave these to me for Christmas , like a year ago and I forgot about reviewing them . I think you can find L. A Colors at either CVS or Walgreens , just not the ones where I’m at sadly. I wanted to try and find some individual shades that I really liked , but sadly no luck. I do like the formula though. Let me know what some of your favorite gloss formulas are , have a great week!
