LA Colors lipstick Berry Ice review & photos.

Pin It now!

Before I go on about my review, let me say this has been overdue. I have been quite ill and busy all at the same time. Not fun at all. Even when I was at my worst, I still managed to document my reviews in hopes when I felt better, I can post them. I will say I am still ill. I have a sinus infection and on top of that I work! AY AY AY.....
Sorry for my long delay and hope you find this review helpful. :)

LA Colors lipstick Berry Ice

A few weeks ago I ventured into a new Family Dollar that is located a few blocks from where I live. Quite convenient because now I can go to Dollar tree and Family Dollar without having to waste gas!!! They have a beautifully displayed La Colors cosmetics (shadows, nail polish, etc...). Of course I am a lipstick person, so I was immediately drawn to their lipsticks. I selected 4 of them (one is a gloss) and one of them was Berry Ice. I will say that I thought it would be a berry color, but I was mistaken. It is a hybrid of other beautiful "berries". Let me show you some pictures and you tell me what you think.

If you would have shown me a swatch of this color, I would be the first person to say "HELL NO...I will stay away from this color"! But you know what, I was pleasantly surprised.

Berry Ice can be best described as a creme blue toned Berry/Pink color. The pigmentation of this lipstick is phenomenal considering what I payed for them. Unbeknownst to me, they had a buy one, get one 50% off (they did not have a display letting the public know they where on sale, weird if you ask me---since they SHOULD advertise it....anyways.....). So for my 4 purchases it equaled to 3.25 including tax! So in short I payed 81 cents per item!!! 
When it comes to performance, this lipstick holds up to 3 hours with my normal drinking and snacking. It DID not dry my lips at all (their lipsticks contain aloe vera and squalane). When I blotted my lips, it gave a nice subtle look.

So who should purchase this lipsticks? A person who wants to experiment with lipstick colors without breaking the bank. Those who are on a budget. Actually just about anyone!

I understand that the brand is not "posh". But you know what, If the brand delivers great color range, great quality and is affordable: you are missing out on a great product!

This is my very first LA Color lipstick I have owned, and I am excited to try out their other goodies!!

I can honestly say this product is a Dollar Gem, Holy Grail Quality and 100% recommend it to anyone!!!
