L'Oreal Colour Riche Mono Eyeshadows

July 13, 2014

L'Oreal's eyeshadow offering has always been pretty impressive, but the new kid on the block has got my heart racing...

Lets start with the packaging - it's sleek, sturdy and generally looks a lot more 'high end' than drugstore. The pros don't stop there either as the actual product inside delivers too. The shadows buttery texture applies effortlessly and without fallout. For a vibrant impact of colour I use a flat brush like Mac's 239, or for a more subtle and blended wash of colour, the Mac 217 is your perfect companion. Add a little bit of primer underneath (Nars' Smudge proof eyeshadow base is my weapon of choice) and these shadows stay in place and vibrant all day.

Colour wise, the selection is great for a drugstore offering. My choices might look pretty similar on camera but I promise they're all different in real life!

Pigmentation, application, texture and packaging - it's all there, and for only £5.49 each (here), you really can't go wrong.

  2. These look lovely! I'll have to keep my eyes out for them. I typically don't purchase single eyeshadows as they tend to get lost in my collection but these may be an exception. xx
