During the past few months or so I've been slowly coming to an awareness of my own shopping habits and today it hit me, that I'm a true hardcore Pennywise shopper, for everything from toiletries too makeup, hair products nails etc. and though I venture into the occasional variety stores it really has been my main cosmetic store of choice, but lately it took me awhile to realise that I've finally submitted to the local craze of shopping at Wonderful World.
So stepping away from my usual view of Wonderful World as a bra and accessories store with the occasional makeup I am only now paying attention to their variety of "affordable" cosmetic brands. As my mom used to say, if you have to start at the bottom try and build yourself a good base.

So this is my intro to LA Girl creme lipstick so i thought I would try at least two.. Pure Ecstasy LC545 and Infatuated LC 547 both lip sticks do glide on smoothly to the lips, but though they are creamy, for me its just not as pigmented as my NYX lip smackers, but like NYX they also have a relatively noticeable sweet scent.

As for longevity, they are not going to last as long as a matte lipstick, which is what I usually go for, but at least its not as drying. I also purchased their retractable lip liner in Nectar, on the liner it states that its a "L.A,Girl endless Semi-permanent auto lip liner; long lasting everyday wear" it really did last well throughout my day and I did uses it to especially give life to my lips as the paler shade of Pure Ecstasy gave my lips a washed out look, but a touch of concealer and the liner made it a good match to my skin tone so the liner is a definite "fav". I did enjoy trying something different and I would definitely purchase other colours in their range again.
