I have to say it: L’Oreal’s fall makeup collection is one to rival any department store makeup brand’s. The colours are beautiful, the products are of high-quality, and it’s all at a price that makes it worth your while to refresh your fall makeup bag.
Lets start with a staple item: lipgloss. L’Oreal Colour Juice glosses are slightly sticky but they stay on for a long time. Blushing Berry is my favourite shade and it’s great if you’re looking for a dark pink lip colour. Touch of Nude is a light coloured gloss that has the perfect amount of pigment – it won’t wash your lips out, but it’ll match your smoky eye beautifully.
Speaking of Smoky Eye, L’Oreal is introducing these new lovelies.
Scared? Don’t be! These crayons are so fun to work with and with them you can do a smoky eye so easily. These are like compacted shadows. I like using them wet. You get great pigmentation, and they stay in place without the help of a primer! My favourite colour is the first one, Bronze Foil. The colour is a dark pewter shade that’s shimmery. Since I’ve gotten it, I’ve been using it every single day to line my eyes. You can even sharpen the crayons in order to get more precise lines. If I didn’t have brown eyes, I’d get the black crayon. It will really help light eye colours pop and can even be used to help darken shadows that are too light.
You could, of course, just use the L’Oreal eyeshadows if you wanted.
I would say that these are pretty much the best quality shadows that one can get at the drugstore. They barely crease and the colours are absolutely beautiful. The palette on the very right isn’t one that I’d normally go for, but the colours are so wearable! The yellow shade is actually a golden colour and it works nicely when the darkest green is used as a liner.
Lastly, don’t forget about nail colour! The silver and gold are nice departures from the dark colours of the season. Gold is going to be huge during the holiday season, and this gold is sparkly and anything but boring. I love the blacks. There’s a Gold Patent and a Silver Patent – both are black nail polishes with gold and silver shimmer respectively. I am loving the gold one – it warms up the black and makes it pretty! The Pro Manicure line also has a high level of shine and stays on for a reasonably long time. I think that gold is going to be the colour of the season, so if you’re over the black, that is the one that I would get. You know that these products are going to be in limited numbers so pick up the line before it’s gone!
As a little extra, here are my pictures of the line. I sharpened the black crayon and you can see that the loss of product is so minimal that it’s worth it to sharpen the crayon if that makes it easier to use. You can also use a damp slanted brush to pick up the colour and use it to line your eyes or a regular brush to apply colour on the whole eyelid.
