L’Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal The Bigger the Better Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) contains black and silver glitter suspended in a clear base.  The silver glitter appears to be in one size, while the black glitter comes in multiple sizes, which makes it look a lot like black paint splatter. It looks super, super dark in the bottle–so much so that it also looks a lot like The Queen’s Ambition, but it’s completely different. I don’t have anything like this, and the only polish that reminds me of the effect is China Glaze Tinsel Town, which is black with silver glitter.

L’Oreal The Mystic’s Fortune Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Gold Imperial Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a metallic, yellow gold. There’s a slightly subdued quality to the overall color–by a little brown–that keeps it from being a yellow/orange kind of gold. This is why it’s not the same as L’Oreal’s Eternal Sunshine,, though if you rarely wear gold, one will do; or, if you find that Eternal Sunshine turns orange-y, you might prefer Gold Imperial. Chanel Apprence is browner. Urban Decay Blitz is very similar–less metallic. MAC Sweet & Sour is yellower.

Bare Escentuals Aspire is a bit lighter. Urban Decay Blunt is close.

Beautiful Beginnings with L’Oreal

Beautiful Beginnings with L’Oreal

What was the first L’Oreal product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Now, L’Oreal and I did not get off to a good start when I started reviewing products on the blog. I was sooo not a fan – just too many misses in a row. However, I stuck with ’em, and then I discovered their Chrome Eyeliners, which are phenomenal! I’m also digging some of their glosses for their color/shimmer.
