Although I am more fascinated by skincare than makeup, a new collection always gets me going and there are some recently released goodies from L’Oreal that are certainly worth a look if you like to play up your eyes.
L’Oreal Paris False Lash Butterfly Intenza Mascara
I have just finished up a tube of the original Butterfly Lash, which I really liked – so my timing to try this one was perfect.
The original delivered lovely length on me, although I found it left the lashes slightly stiff and the brush wasn’t the easiest to work with.
THIS brush on the other hand, is rather fantastic. It’s wide, but not bulky or hard to handle and it makes your lashes separated yet full – a beautiful fan of lashes. It is multi-dimensional so it can be twisted and turned in different ways to reach inner corner and outer corner without wearing it all over your eyelid – an irritation that often has occurred with silicon brushes these days.
The black is a great rich black and it does thicken slightly, but not so much that you get tarantula leg lashes. One coat of this is divine for day time wear in my opinion – although I am OTT with eye makeup. I wish it didn’t come in a big box as I cringed at the wasted paper and excessive packaging, but this is a product I would purchase for myself.
Super Liner Smokissime
allows you to create an intense smoky eye in one stroke. With the precision tip you can line your eye, whilst the rounded foam helps blend the colour across your lid. This is a pretty cool product and I have had fun playing with it. It’s easier to handle than you’d expect, so what I do is apply it and then gently smudge it around the eye with a brush – I prefer a softer finish so that does the trick. If you were more masterful with your application and loved a strong look, you could really create a defined, smokey eye. But overall, this is great for newbies and good for travel or topping up while you’re out.
L’Oreal Paris Brow Artist Genius Kit
I like this kit a lot. The powder is really good although I struggle with the angled spooley brush as I am used to a longer handle. The pigmented wax allows hold for up to 12 hours so it’s a great product for a big night out or for a look you want to last. I do love that they have thought of everything with the kit – a little mirror and a tiny pair of tweezers really does make it genius.
