NEW! Eye Makeup from L'OREAL That You Need in Your Life!



Hi there, my darlings! TGIF! This has been a weird week, weather-wise--alternately cold and rainy. Despite the almost overwhelming need to just curl up and nap, I've been quite productive! I've tested and swatched and waxed eloquent about some fabulous products this week. I guess it's the true sign of a beauty obsessed blogger when she resists the urge to nap and plays with makeup instead! It has definitely helped that I've had the opportunity to review and share some really great new products with you all! And we really should end the week strong with some new goodies for eyes from one of my favorite brands, L’Oréal! Take a look at what I've been testing recently!



COLOUR RICHE® Pocket Palette Eye Shadow
($9.99)

Multi-finish. Multi-color. Infinite Eye Looks.

Create your color obsession with L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche® Pocket Palette, our first multi-color, multi-finish eyeshadow quad. Create sophisticated looks and make your color statement with specially curated shade families and finishes that range from shimmery to matte. Blends smoothly for easy application.


Available in 8 sets, I have 2 to share with you today: Violet Amour (left) and Haute Hazel.




 Haute Hazel is a gorgeous, pigmented quartet in shades of shimmery burnt gold, shimmery bright blue, shimmery gunmetal gray and matte midnight blue. Personally, all four shades I would wear, either individually or combined so this is a great little palette for me!




Violet Amour lives up to its name with shades including a shimmery light lavender, a matte violet with a touch of sparkle, a shimmery lilac and a deep, dark mauve/eggplant so intense that it's almost black. I love purples for the eyes so another hit for me! Especially that dark mauve--perfect for a Fall smokey eye!




I'm a huge, huge fan of L’Oréal's mascaras and almost use them exclusively. While I've discovered a couple of other drugstore brands that work well, nothing beats L’Oréal when it comes to mascaras! I'll go so far as to say that they rival, if not outperform my pricey MAC mascara--with the price difference, I usually stick to my L’Oréal mascaras! So, I was really excited to try out a couple of new mascaras, along with an old favorite!


What's New:

*VOLUMINOUS® Lash Primer ($7.99)

Instantly Thicker, Longer Lashes. Mascara Amplifier. Conditions lashes over time.

Before, we get started here's a look at how my natural lashes look on a regular day. I know, nothing to write home about!




When I first opened the tube, I have to say I wasn't very impressed with the brush of the Voluminous Feline mascara. I mean, what good could those short, stubby little plastic bristles do?! But this is a good case of "Don't judge the mascara by the brush". That unassuming brush packs a pretty powerful punch!




I wore this out to dinner last night and first of all, let me just say that I was running out the door and applied all my makeup on the subway! Even so, my results are pretty good! This mascara does give you volume--perhaps not as much as its sisters as you'll soon see but you can't complain. While the length of my lashes were only somewhat increased, it does fan your lashes out in a very appealing way! Oh and when they say "waterproof", you better believe they mean it. Dinner, then a walk in the rain, followed by a subway ride home and it did NOT budge! Plus, I really had to work to get it off--4 baby wipes, my regular cleanser plus coconut oil and then I was finally able to get it all off. You know those interminable work days or those special events that go on forever? Grab this mascara for those days!




I was really excited right off the bat about this primer! I've used L’Oréal's dual-ended mascaras, where one side is a primer and the other is the mascara, in the past and loved it! The brush of this primer is absolutely lush--full and thick and oh-so-soft. Let's say I went into this with high expectations!




And it did not disappoint! Just look at the volume and length achieved just with the Primer! It's safe to say I'm totally in love!




Finally, what can I say about the OG Voluminous mascara, except that it works! And how! You'll get dramatic length AND volume with this baby! Plus, the brush is very easy to use and the formula very gentle on the eyes. Believe me, I wear contacts and you know how the slightest thing can throw those into a tizzy! I can comfortable wear this mascara for hours, with no irritation whatsoever.




And I'll let the picture do all the talking! Isn't that just amazing!? Lashes for DAYS!




So there you have it, my darlings! L’Oréal products are available at fine retailers and mass merchandisers nationwide, such as Rite Aid and CVS, across the US as well as your local Ulta. To find a retailer near you, please visit L’Oréal's website HERE.
