LA Colors Desert Dune NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 26 - 2012

I love a good rusty orange, and before you jump on the it’s too Autumnal thing (I saw you making me feel completely off-trend with Minger!), I’m sticking two fingers up at trends.  Well, that and the fact that I bought this last Autumn.  Busted.

I see brushstrokes, does that make this a frost?  Does anyone else struggle a little bit telling the difference between all the various finishes?  I’m gonna call this a frost.  Go on, you can correct me if I’m wrong – I’m wearing my big girl’s pants.  I’m always wearing big girl’s pants :(

Desert Dune is a great shade for Autumn Spring, it’s rich… velvety and a looks non too shabby on a pale skintone.  Application with this one was trouble-free, with a few coats covering the nail bed to a good opacity.

LA Colours is available to buy in BeautyBase in both of London’s Westfields.  I picked this up from Whiteleys Shopping Centre on Queensway last time I was in London.  I think it was 99p?  I might have made that up.

What is your favourite LA Colors shade?

    Yep, they’re 99p in Beauty Base. I have about 30 of these, oh dear!

    no you’re right they were 99p! I couldn’t believe my eyes when i was at Westfield and saw them in the display window -(& their quality is not so shabby either! score!)

    There is notihng wrong with big pants, Wonder Woman wore big pants :)

  4. Ha, I love the lack of commitment on the price there! Okay, it ain’t a classic Spring shade, but it’s actually really, really pretty – the tones in it remind me of velvet for some reason. Must have some memory of velvet this colour lodged away somewhere. Anyway, I like it. Hope you’re having a lovely holiday. x
