L’Oreal Paris has been busy! They have quite a few new products out in drugstores right now that are really worth taking a look at!
First there’s the the L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Sourcil Eyebrow Pencil($8.99 CDN) that comes in 2 shades: Golden Brown and Deep Brown, and the new Colour Riche Le Khol Eyeliners($8.99 CDN) that come in colourful and intense shades:
The L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Sourcil Eyebrow Pencil in Golden Brown is a bit warm for me, which is a shame as I really like it! It’s a creamy texture that dries to a suede-powder finish and that’s what I like in my eyebrow pencils. I hate waxy eyebrow pencils as my brow hairs are kind of long, so a wax makes them look like they have moustache wax on them. NOT a good look I tell ya. The spooly brush on the end is great for blending in the pencil with your brow hairs to give a natural look. If one of the colours matches you, lucky you! Check it out!
L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Le Khol Eyeliners have a cream glide technology, and you guessed it- these are creamy, smooth and vibrant eyeliners! The black is REALLY black as you can see and works great on the waterline, or smudged out on your lash lines. Since it’s a kohl pencil, it’s not bulletproof in wear, so I do suggest setting it with a bit of eyeshadow to make sure it stays in place. But truth be told, it’s pretty decent at staying put on its own-one of the better stay-put kohls I’ve tried! There are some really pretty jewel toned ones that would be perfect for fall.
L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Excess Mascara($10.99 CDN) is the first L’Oreal Mascara that I actually really like!
I know that the Voluminous Carbon Lash or whatever it’s called is a HG mascara for a lot of people, but for me it’s a bit on the dry side and smudges like crazy. L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Excess Mascara is a wetter formula, maybe even too wet at first even for me. It took about 2 weeks for it to get to the right consistency that I like and now I can’t get enough of it!
The brush is a plastic brush that’s hourglass shaped, yet comes to a rounded tip and it’s not so spiky that it hurts to put your mascara on. I usually always have to use kleenex and brush off excess mascara before going to my eye, but not with L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Excess Mascara! I can go straight to my lashes without fear of clumping, and if there are any clumps the bristles on the brush comb through them. It doesn’t smudge or flake on me and isn’t a pain to take off. I really like it!
Here’s what one coat looks like:
And here’s what it looks like with a couple of coats and the rest of my eye makeup:
L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup($18.99 CDN) features a unique blend of light oils and instantly fuses with skin to give undetectable coverage. It’s available in 12 shades:
Believe it or not, this shade Light Ivory #310 is too pale for me at the moment! I know! This has to be a day of triumph for me-the day that I finally am dark enough to wear drugstore foundations!
Light Ivory kind of matches my arm, but trust me it doesn’t match my face one bit. I’d need one shade darker for a better match, but for the winter I think this would be perfect. It’s the weirdest yet coolest feeling foundation ever and is hard to describe. It’s like a dry oil, but no oily residue at all. When you pour it out of the bottle, it almost looks like liquid sand. It leaves quite a dry, almost powdery finish to your skin. Coverage is sheer, yet buildable to about a medium coverage. As cool as L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup feels and looks-it’s just not meant for someone with dry skin, just like its sister foundation, Giorgio Armani True Match. Both of these foundations catch on my dry skin and accentuate any dry patches I have and even ones I didn’t KNOW I had. Even if I try to moisturize my skin really well before application, L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup still doesn’t work for me. But if you have oily or combination skin, then you will LOVE it. It honestly feels like there’s nothing on your face! If you’ve wanted to try Giorgio Armani True Match Foundation but haven’t because YIKES the price tag here in Canada is beyond ridiculous, then give L’Oreal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup a try!
