♥ La Colors Purple Lipstick Review

La Colors Purple Lipstick Review

Today I just wanted to do a quick review of this LA Colors lipstick that I bought a while ago when I was out shopping with Nicole from Nicole's Beauty. I had been searching for a proper purple lipstick, that doesn't look like a plum shade for quite a while so when I found this for only £1, I thought why not?

The lipstick itself has that nice vanilla scent, a bit like MAC lipsticks. The ingredients are listed on the side, unfortunately I don't have a picture of the ingredient list but it does contain mineral oil and parabens too I am sure. However, I think that is justifiable for a £1 product.

Application? As you can see in the picture above, even though the lipstick itself if pretty pigmented, it applies quite unevenly. It has that waxy feel that sometimes doesn't want to stick to your lips.

I would definitely buy more of these lipsticks anyway because I think the result is great and it looks like any other £1+ lipstick. I believe they had loads of shades so I'll definitely go back to get more.

La Colors is available in most afro hair care stores, but they mostly sell the nail polishes only. Thr makeup is available at Beauty Base at Westfield.

  1. My macbook charger is almost broken too! smh. I wish the port was anything but magnetic.
    The lipstick looks gorgeous on you. I only have a couple of nail polish from L.A colours. Will definitely look into their lipsticks. xx

  2. I haven't tried the brand, but it's a nice colour! :)

  3. Love the lip color!

  4. I have seen the brand before but I have never tried it, it looks great on you and you can't go wrong with that price right :)

  5. I absolutely love that colour on you! Really suits you. I wish I could pull of bright colours, but my skin just can't handle it. The photos look great too.

  6. Nice shade, that brand is new to me, but after seeing it on you, I might even try it :) xo ♥

  7. The colour look lovely on you!

  8. I've tried this brand in eyeshadows and nail polishes but have never tried their lipstick. For the price it doesn't seem that bad, either!
