L'Oreal Paris Exclusive Nudes

I reviewed Blake's Red back in December which really impressed me as perhaps one of the best lipsticks available on the High Street, so obviously I had to try L'Oreal Paris' Exclusive Nudes- a collection I had high expectations for. In this post, I have four shades from the collection: Liya, Eva, Julianne, and Frieda. Thankfully, they didn't disappoint.

The shades aren't your average nudes- but are nudes with a pop of colour and shimmer to them, which is why I think these lipsticks are great. Particularly as the shades are individually aimed at various skin tones. The colour payoff for each are quite sheer at first but are build-able, and all of them offer a pearlescent finish without being overwhelmingly glittery (and annoying).


Nude Magique Blur Cream by L'Oreal Paris

I've heard a lot about L'Oreal Paris' Nude Magique Blue Cream and I had a go of it myself. I don't usually don't wear foundation but I'm constantly on the lookout for products that are lightweight and reduces the appearance of pores, so I'm glad that I came across this.

The Blur Cream is essentially a primer that smoothes out the skin and makes the pores less visible by filling them in. It can be worn alone or under make-up, but I use it on it's own. It's also available in two shades: light to medium skin, and medium to dark skin.


Festive Favourites | 'Blake's Pure Red' by L'Oreal Paris

It takes a lot for a lipstick to impress me and I can safely say that L'Oreal Paris have amazed me with their new Exclusive Reds Lipstick collection. In my absolute honest opinion, these lipsticks are the best I have ever tried, and they put a lot of premium branded, overpriced lipsticks to shame. In this post, I'll be talking about Blake's Pure Red shade, which is one of my ultimate favourites for the festive season.

Bags of Beauty Blog: Upcoming Launch- L'Oreal Colour Riche Nail Polish in Sky Fits Heaven

Susmi Patel
I was lucky enough to be sent a few of the new Colour Riche nail polishes from L'Oreal. I think they're being released next month but I'll double check that for you if you leave a comment below.

These nail polishes are quite small in size- I'd see that as a disadvantage, but then again at least you can carry a few of these in your handbag without feeling like your lifting a heavy sack! The small bottles kind of look elegant too with its gold bottle top.

When I first opened the nail polish, the first thing I noticed was the wide brush. It's not really that wide, but because the bottle is quite small, it's a shocker! I'm not a fan of maxi-brushes, but this polish surprisingly painted my nails well and I managed to get the corners (which is usually difficult with a maxi-brush!).

The colour of the nail polish is a sky blue, but not a light blue. The colour on your nails reflects a lot of light, so they tend to look really shiny too! This colour will be so perfect to wear in the summer...


Bags of Beauty Blog: L'Oreal Colour Infallible Eyeshadows

I love these eye-shadows! They're amazingly pigmented and sparkly and the colour lasts for a really long time when applied.

This particular shade is 27- 'Goldmine', and will look lovely as part of a sultry, smoky eye look as the product is very glittery.

Sometimes eyeshadows are so sheer that it can be quite difficult to apply with your fingers, but these Colour Infallible eyeshadows can be applied using your fingers due to its burst of golden colour! 

At first, I thought the eyeshadow was of a matte consistency, but it's actually creamy and super smooth so it's sooo easy to apply

This may sound pretty weird and super-observant, but the official high-res image of the product isn't as sparkly and pretty as it is in real life- the product is a real shocker! I will definitely be buying loads of these as they're the best eyeshadows I've ever tried! Silver is definitely more my colour, but I'm not sure if there's a silver shade of this product...

Here's a quick snap of the product's contents (sorry about the not-so-good quality images, I found it difficult to get a good snap without the lighting getting in the way as I wanted to show you the trueness in the sparkle and colour of the product!):

And here's a little swatch on the back of my hand (No camera flash- it looks amazing doesn't it?)

Have you tried this eyeshadows? What do you think of them?

These eyeshadows retail at £6.99, and can be purchased at Boots and Superdrug stores.
