After spending some time revamping my blog (it still needs some work) I have come to realise that I buy an awful lot of L’Oréal. Well shock, I have bought some more and have yet another review for you. You can thank me later.
I don’t know about any of you but when I think of the festive season, other than the obvious red and green, my mind immediately thinks of all things gold and glittery. Well L’Oréal have provided us with just that. Their brand new Gold collection is everything you would want to slap on your face for this festive season.
Naturally, I picked up as much as I could from the collection and have been putting it to the test ever since. Thoughts and opinions? It’s one of their best collections yet. Now obviously the collection as a whole is extremely limited but what it does consist of is near enough perfection.
From the collection, I managed to come home with gold highlighter, gold lipstick and yup you guessed it, gold eyeliner.
Now I’m sure that you are questioning how a gold lipstick can be perfect? It’s not exactly appropriate for that everyday natural look. Well don’t judge a book by its cover because it makes the perfect topcoat to give that extra plump look. Believe it or not, everything that I have tested is perfectly suitable for a day-to-day look.
The highlight is by far one of the best drug-store highlighters I own. Its creamy texture allows it to glide onto the skin with a perfect consistency that leaves a subtle golden glow. It’s also great for eye shadow; gotta love those multi-uses.
Now onto the eyeliner, despite what you might think, it is actually black eyeliner with a golden shimmer. So now you know you can trust me when I say there is nothing extreme about this collection. However, if you are a fan of your perfectly pigmented winged liner then this may not be the one. It is perfect for lining the eye to give definition with a golden twist, however it’s not going to act as a knife leading up to your brow bone.
If I had to pick one from the bunch? The highlighter, without question. It’s not often you come across a highlighter from the drug store that is on point. This is in my own personal opinion, but for me, I feel that the drug store is a little behind when it comes to highlighter, especially those of a cream consistency. So to find one that’s near perfection is not something to ignore.
If you are looking for something that’s a little out of the box but is still perfectly appropriate for the festive season then I would certainly try this collection out. At this time of year you can always pick up deals in the drug store so it’s the perfect time to go and pick it up!!
