In a clear move to copycat the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, LA Girl recently came out with the Glazed Lip Paints. These are super-pigmented liquid glosses that are bold and bright and in your face. Instead of paying $21/lipstick like you will for the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, these will set you back just $15 for all 6 of these if you buy them on Amazon.
I haven't actually tried any of the Too Faced lipsticks, so I don't know how these compare, but I can tell you that these are very liquidy, slightly tough to work with (because of how slippery and glossy they are) but the color pay off is amazing. They're formulated with Vitamin E and peppermint oil to nourish the lips while also providing a cooling effect. Here's what they look like... (sorry the lighting was all over the place while I was taking these - hence the differences in these photos!)

|LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Pin-Up (deep blue-toned red)|
|LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Bombshell (deep pink)|
|LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Babydoll (light neon pink)|
|LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Blushing (deep mauve)|
|LA Girl Glazed Lip Paint in Coy (purple)|
My favorite shades of the bunch are Blushing and Pin-Up, and I will probably NEVER wear Coy or Babydoll (save for a Halloween costume) but I think these are a fun alternative if you're on a budget and can't or don't want to spend the money on the Too Faced alternative.
Have you tried these LA Girl lip paints? Let me know what you think!
