American Apparel Lip Gloss - Legalize LA
Today I have a lip gloss from American Apparel to show you. I believe that American Apparel only started selling these last year, but I had not heard much about them on the beauty blogosphere so I was quite thrilled to try one out. I picked the shade "Legalize LA" because I am a red lips fiend and will make no apologies for being one.
Legalize LA is a cherry red with very fine shimmer. It comes packaged in a very simple (and I mean that in the best way. I really love understated and nondescript packaging) and sturdy hefty plastic tube with a doefooted applicator.
This shade may look intimidating in the tube but I swear to you that it is more mild than it seems. It's a gateway red gloss, the kind that makes you wonder why you were ever scared of red lips in the first place. You can wear it by itself, sheer for a beautiful soft red. You can wear it on top of red lipstick for an intensified red pout.
American Apparel Lip Glosses are $12 each and can be found in store and on the American Apparel website. The color swatch of Legalize LA was dead on, so that gives me quite a bit of confidence in the other shades.
Check out the other shades! I have my eye on African Violet and Pasadena, they're very unusually bright shades that I don't often see with gloss.
