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.

L’Oreal Smoldering Plum Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Smoldering Plum Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep, dark, and wickedly intense red-toned burgundy purple with a subtle frosted sheen. It’s a more intense versino of Urban Decay Rockstar. MAC Young Punk is purpler, less burgundy. MAC Dynamic Duo 4 is reminiscent, but less red-toned and matte. MAC Indian Ink is a matte version. Giorgio Armani #2 is slightly richer, blacker, and has red and blue-violet shimmer–so it translates a bit differently. Giorgio Armani #3 has a very reflective sheen that’s more silvery–the purple is a bit grayer, less red-toned.

L’Oreal VIP Status Nail Lacquer

L’Oreal VIP Status Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a cool-toned, smoky blue-gray with hints of teal and silver shimmer in a metallic base. There was not a single color that came to mind that even resembled this in a meaningful way. Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal is a creamy, dark blue-based teal, but there’s none of the gray, smokiness or the multi-faceted shimmer. If you have a dupe in mind, I’d love to hear it!

5 Shimmering Silver Eyeshadows

5 Shimmering Silver Eyeshadows

I love a really shimmery silver on the lid with a matte gray or black eyeshadow in the crease for a very traditional, monochromatic smoky eye!
