The L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints have been getting a lot of hype lately and I can see why! I finally got my hands on a few of them and I think they’re pretty cool. I was the most curious about Babydoll but Coy ended up taking my breath away. It’s such a beautiful color!

Coy looks like a mid-tone blue violet when swatched but it’s considerably lighter on the lips. It’s actually more of a light cool, blue toned lavender that’s pretty unique. The closest dupe I have in my stash is NYX Violet Macaron Lipstick which is lighter and tiny bit more pink. Coy comes in a purple plastic tube with gold accents and a gold cap. The packaging is simple and cute but a little difficult for the formula. It’s very easy to squeeze out too much and waste product.  You definitely want to be careful and press lightly!

Coy is intensely pigmented and has a thin, runny texture. A little goes a very long way so you don’t have to pile this baby on! The formula slips around a little bit so you might want to wear a lip liner. It still wears pretty well though. I found Coy to be very dry lip friendly. The formula is lightly moisturizing and it doesn’t emphasize dry spots or settle into lip lines. It wears for around 3-4 hours before fading away into a light stain.

Some people compare the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paints to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks but I haven’t tried the Melted Lipsticks yet. So I can’t help you too much there. Sorry! I did read that the formulas are quite different though and that the OCC Lip Tars seem to be a closer dupe. I’ve tried a couple of Lip Tars before and I do find the Glazed Lip Paint formula to be very similar. It’s a pretty great affordable alternative ($18 vs $4). So if you’ve been meaning to try an OCC Lip Tar or you already love them I think you’ll like Coy a lot!
