LA Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipstick in Snuggle

Had this ever happened to you ?

You are very ill and already been bitten by the lipstick junkie bug a bit too hard. You have to visit the doctor and he is quite cute. But you are worried which shade of lipstick to wear so that the doctor don't think you are actually crazy and refer you to psychiatrist.
That's me !



Had this ever happened to you ?

You are in the middle of cooking and noticed you are out of onions. You have to go to the local sabzi-mandi. Then you remembered, last time when you had that orange lipstick on while you were buying vegetables, the sabziwala was giving a strange look and asked you quite inquisitively, ' Didiaapne subah subah kitna orange ice stick kha lia hai" ( Sister, how many orange ice lollies you had this morning ). This is so me !

Had this ever happened to you ?

You have to attend a Shraadh function of a close relative an your husband comes and says, " Remember where we are going, not a wedding! " And you reply him gnarly, while managing to hide the bright fuchsia lipstick tube in your hand, "I know, and I am not wearing any bright lipstick".
This is very very me !

Had this ever happened to you ?

Your Mom calls and says, "Beta, your fifth cousin's mother-in-law had passed away at 90, and we ought to attend the funeral". The first thing that comes in your mind, man I cannot wear Ruby Woo with white kurta, it would look too glamorous for the occasion. But then again, cannot be damned to be seen with pigmented lips when there is a cute guy in their family expected to attend the funeral too.
This is not me, do not have any fifth cousin, then again what are odds !

Yes, I did end up in many funny incidents due to my lipstick fever. I would not be seen dead without one on, sounds way too intense? Ask any of my friends and family, and they will tell you how crazy I can get over a tube of lipstick. To save myself from many such embarrassing turn of events, I got myself a shade which is like the prefect "My lips but better (MLBB)"

That's the L.A Girl Matte Flat velvet Lipstick in the shade Snuggle.
Available in Nykaa and retails for Rs 550

This is how my lips looks without any lipstick on, you can tell the top lip is quite pigmented.

This pic is with the lipstick. Doesn't it gives the impression that I have not put on any lipstick, but still pigmentation is covered!

The lipstick applies smoothly without any pull or tug and has a sheen to it while applying. After a while it settles down to a velvety matte finish almost a little powdery. Without any eating and drinking the lipstick does lasts for 2-3 hours. With meals, it fades off, but evenly. Reapplication does not look patchy. I have lot of lip lines and when the lipstick has a good amount of stay on my lips, I had noticed it to settle into my lip lines. It has a very hydrating formula and is indeed very comfortable on lips. I enjoy wearing this a lot.

Now, this shade in particular is not for everyone. Girls till NC40 skin tone would have that perfect my lips but better shade with this. But beyond that, on deeper skin tones, the shade will wash you out. I am NC40 - NC42. At time I do feel that the shade is a bit paler. In many occasions I did topped it off with sheer lip gloss to add a little shine to my lips.

It's not very expensive, affordable and is of good quality. If this shade in particular is not your cup of tea then there are plenty to choose from, 26 of them ! I am sure you would find something which would suit your need perfectly. Truly, as a lipstick, this is one of best lipsticks I have tried at such an affordable price. I do highly recommend this.
