New Shadows From L’Oreal


I’ve had some of these new Colour Riche Mono Shadows from L’Oreal for quite some time but something put me off posting about them.. probably the fact the shade I originally picked up looked so blah (always neutrals) and another crumbled when I dropped it so I didn’t think I had anything amazing to say about them until 2 others arrived courtesy of L’Oreal. One shade in particular won me over and I felt I would be remiss if I didn’t talk about it.

IMG_2582L-R – Escape In Bordeaux, Mauvie Star

Escape In Bordeaux is the winner here, absolutely BEAUTIFUL in colour and texture and so very season appropriate. Mauvie Star is far more blue toned than I’d like and opalescent.. not something I think I’m going to get much wear from in truth but a lovely colour for the right colouring.

IMG_2544Here’s the other I picked up.. how amazing does this look in the pan? I could be wrong but I believe there are 6 finishes in this line –  Nude, Matte, Lumiere, Smoky, Cameleon and Pop. There are 24 shades in these various categories which all look different but I think it’s a given that the Lumiere’s are the prettiest in the pan..

IMG_0585Apparently they’re infused with gel which is what makes them so beautifully creamy and pigmented to swatch, it’s a new one on me but hey, whatever works!

IMG_0598IMG_0589They are compact and providing you only need a couple they’re handy for on the go/travel etc but some of them appear to be set in to the plastic packaging directly rather than in a metal pan so if you were thinking you could depot and make a palette I’m not sure that’s going to be that easy. Also they’re pretty pricey, £5.49 for a single eyeshadow is a lot when you consider L’Oreal do a quad for £7.99. It’s unlikely you’re ever going to buy just ONE eyeshadow so for me unless you can get them on 3 for 2 I’d pass.. nice as they are individually packaged shadows are just a bit of a pain.

    Oh, wow, these look lovely!! I don’t know why but I always kind of pass on most of L’Oreal stuff… They don’t have the same pizzazz as other drugstore brands!

    Try the Mauvie Star over a dark base. It looks a lot like MACs Stars n Rockets and that looks really pretty over the top of black eyeliner. Escape in Bordeaux looks amazing!

    Escape in Bordeaux is such a unique and rich colour. I hope they bring these to Australia soon!

    These are really beautiful looking. I don’t know why I haven’t seen them before? Hmmm. I will make a special point to find them next time I’m at the drugstore!

    Escape in Bordeaux is gorgeous! Definitely going to have a peek at these – although I fear if I buy I’ll never use as I’m so lazy I always reach for one palette/quad over singles?
