Buy and Blog: L.A. Colors

Hello, my Pretties!

It's been a while since I last shared with you a "haul" post.  I decided not to call them "hauls" anymore.  Why??  Uh, just because, I suppose.  Haha.  I just wanted to be different.  The word "haul" is used a lot in the beauty community.  A lot.

Any how, I decided to treat myself the other day and look for some new fall shades to add to my collection. Even though the sweet-tart hates that I am cheap with my makeup, I don't mind at all.  L.A. Colors is probably the cheapest brand that I buy but I like it.  So if I like it and get to save money with it, I don't see the problem.  Haha.

In September, I posted my small collection of L.A. Colors nail polishes.  I only had four at the time.  And those four were better suited for spring and summer.  So that's why last week I decided to get four more nail polishes that seemed more appropriate for fall.

You can see my Nail Polish Collection: L.A. Colors post HERE.

Now let me share my new goodies with you.

I purchased all of the following products at my local Family Dollar and each individual item was only $1.00!

When I saw this polish, it SCREAMED fall to me.  It's so perfect it isn't even funny.  Copper tones for fall are a must have.

And then I saw this color and it reminded me of the leaves once they have changed colors.  Or so I've seen in photos and movies.  The trees down here in Texas tend to stay green year round.  We don't have those pretty golden leaves...

Black is a staple.  I think it's that time of year where you can bust out the darkest of the dark nail polishes and look quite put together.  I like wearing black nail polish.  For me, it's classy in a way.  I don't think of it as "goth".  Besides, Halloween is just around the corner and black is essential for those Halloween inspired nails.  Although I'm not sure I will be attempting any Halloween nail art this year.

Last but not least, I got a berry hue.  I've heard that berry shades are definitely in for fall.  I thought this one was pretty in the bottle but swatched a lot brighter than I had hoped.  It's still pretty though.

And now on to the lips!  I love buying lipstick now.  I had very few lipsticks before.  I always preferred to buy eyeshadows.  But now I have a lot of shadows so I decided to focus more on lipsticks and blushes.

Here is a pic of my pucker for you to see them in their natural state for reference.

Sticking with the berry theme for fall, I picked this one.  I had to.  Look at the name.  Perfect!

Berry Ice is very pretty but very bold as well.  I then decided to pick up another lipstick that I could and probably would, use more often.  A little more on the neutral side, shall I say.

I will say that I enjoy the L.A. Colors lipsticks.  They are creamy and feel good on my lips.  The colors are very pigmented, as you can see.  The price point doesn't get any better.  That's why I have a few of these in my collection.  Maybe I will feature those in a blog post at a later time.

And while I do love their lipsticks, I have never tried their lip glosses.  I ended up picking out two lip glosses just to try out.  There were quite a few colors that I liked and a red that was WOW.  But I decided on a very pretty neutral pink shade and something more unique.

These glosses were fantastic on the lips.  They DO feel moisturizing.  Even after I wiped them off my lips, my lips felt softer and smoother.  Love that.

In my opinion, L.A. Colors is a brand that I don't see much of on the blogging community.  I admit that they are cheap.  But I like saving money where I can.  I have purchased L.A. Colors that I just didn't like but these items here, I am happy with.

I don't think you have to spend a lot of money to have quality items.  L.A. Colors is a brand that I will definitely try and build up my collection on.

♥♥ All items mentioned in this post were purchased by me with my own money.  These are my own thoughts and honest opinions. ♥♥
