L.A. Girl makes 2 items I love.
1. A true black creme lipstick which has a beautiful sheen and is surprisingly flattering (though I wouldn't wear it to work)
2. One of my favorite creme nail polish colors in the world, #329 Robin Blue Creme lacquer
#329 Robin blue is not really a robin's egg blue. I think someone needs to do some research before naming these shades.This has lavender undertones, not green.
It's a gorgeous muted Orchid tone, that elusive hybrid between grey-blue-lavender, which is lovely on most skins. It's not a fully opaque polish, by the way, so you will need at least 3 coats to make it even. But I wear this to work all the time with no problem. It's surprisingly neutral and muted, flattering on the skin, and does not look too outlandish for a corporate environment.
At the same time, it's an interesting color to look at.
I haven't been able to find a shade quite like it from any other brand, and I love that it's cheap and comes in a big bottle.
It doesn't last as well as Sally Hansen or O.P.I., etc. But then it's not expensive, so I can live with that.
