Is it just me or does L'Oreal feel a bit more expensive than other brands at the drugstore? L'Oreal is one the drugstore brands that I can find something from each makeup category and love it, whether it be foundations or lipsticks. I recently picked up a few new things from them and thought what better way to share them with you guys than a good ole' brand roundup.
L'Oreal True Match Foundation | £9.99
I was never a fan of the original True Match foundation. I found it drying and cakey looking. But L'Oreal has formulated it - adding oils and skin care benefits into the mix. The Result? Is a brilliant new foundation. The formula isn't dry or cakey, it blends in well and sits beautifully on my skin. It has a satin finish and lasts around 6 hours on me. You can read my full review of this here.
L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt Contour Palette | £9,99 POST
When I heard L'Oreal was launching a contour range I was super excited. And this little cream palette did not disappoint. I have the shade 03 medium / dark, which is a perfect contouring shade for me. The darker shades sits a little on the warmer shade, but not to warm it looks silly. And the lightest shade is very light, which is perfect for creating a strong contouring look. Although, I don't tend to use the lightest shade on a day to basis, just because it's a very strong look for everyday wear. Both shades are really creamy and easy to blend.
L'Oreal Sculpt Blush | £7.99 POST
The Blushes are my favourites from the Sculpt range. They each have 3 shades that can be used separately or all together. I just use the all together. I have the shades 102 Nude Bronze, which is a lovely bronzy colour and 201 Soft Rosy, which is pink colour. Both of these are super pigmented, easy to blend and lasts all day. But what I love most is the finish - they give a beautiful soft radiance to the cheeks.
L'Oreal Colour Riche Single Eye Shadows | £5.49
I think L'Oreal eye shadows are seriously under rated. As drugstore eye shadows go these are brilliant. They're super pigmented, buttery and easy to blend! My favourites are 107 Macaron Vanille, which is a matte yellow-y beige colour. And 500 Luminere which is a stunning gold Champagne colour.
L'Oreal Super Liner Black n Scuplt | £6.99
This liner is another new launch from the Sculpt range. This is a strange liquid liner to say the least. It has a strange round tip. Making me wonder how is anyone supposed to achieve a perfect wing with it. Well having put this the test I can tell you, its not easy. Not impossible, but not easy. After several uses it is really difficult to get a small, defined wing but its easy to achieve a strong bold one. One plus to this though is it makes light work of liner the upper lash line. It's also super black and lasts all day.
L'Oreal Infalliable Matte Max Lipsticks | £6.99
This is another strange concept. This lipsticks have a foam applicator and the product is in the lid. This isn't like any convential lipsticks, it feels kind of powdery on the lips but they are not drying at all! The product applies sheer at first but it can be easily built. These are super long lasting, they didnt blend around the lips and they don't transfer. I have the shades 001 Silencio, which is a peachy nude colour and 004 Ooops I Pink It Again, which is a nice berry toned pink.
L'Oreal Infaillible Setting Spray | £7.99
Its brilliant to see drugstore brands bring brilliant alternatives to much higher priced products. And this setting in spray is exactly the same as the famous Urban Decay setting spray (see my battle of the setting spray post). I find that the Urban Decay one doesnt actually prolong my makeup wear but keeps it fresher for longer, and the offering from Loreal keeps it looking fresh for just as long, for a fraction on the price!
Have you tried any of these? What are you favourites from L'Oreal?
Until next time..
