L’Oréal Paris: Gold Obsession Collection Review (5 min read)

Hi guys!

Firstly, are you all caught up with my latest posts?

  1. DREAM OF FLAWLESS EYELASHES? LADY BURGUNDY AND I GOT YOU GIRL! (5 min read)
  2. DISCOUNT CODE: LADY BURGUNDY (EYELASHES & BEAUTY) (1 min read)
  3. KYLIE JENNER LIQUID LIPSTICKS: THREE DRUGSTORE DUPES (5 min read)

Cool, now get back to this one 🙂

Lately i became addicted to L’oréal Paris make-up after i realised how high quality it is … plus it has such an affordable price! Two main retailers in the UK that sell this brand are Boots and Superdrug for anyone wondering. My main advice is that sometimes Boots has different products out to Superdrug, so to make the most by visiting both!

Gold Obsession is their latest collection launched at beginning of October as far as i’m aware. I really hope that i manage to grab all the remaining cosmetics in this range, you’ll soon see why i’m so obsessed! Although there is one product i’m very disappointed in…

Enjoy xox


Lets start with two lipsticks. Is there ever a time when i don’t buy a new lip? I don’t think so! I picked out these two shades for now.

The packaging is very pretty – goes with the theme perfectly and in fact, they are divided into two categories – all gold for the base colour and gold&black ombre for creating a little twist to your look. £6.99 each. Click here to buy the gold or here to buy the red.

The shades i picked up were 228 VIP (matte) and Pure Gold.

228 is the perfect matte red for a classic look, very sophisticated and build able. It’s also the first ever red lipstick to add to my collection – it was always a colour i thought i can’t rock but i’m giving it a go!

Pure Gold is self-explanatory, it’s a gold, sparkly shade that i had never come across before! I’m in love, once i wore it to work and majority of my customers complemented the look!

I feel that autumn is the one time of the year when you can full on play around with your make-up the most.

And here are some swatches! On the top you can see 228 (very, very pigmented), Pure Gold in the middle (that needs a few layers before you can build up the intensity) and the two shades mixed together in the heart.

Of course, lets not forget about a lip liner. Lip liner is so important when applying darker lipsticks and every line has to be neat. I saw this one being recommended beside the lipsticks and i was intrigued to see that it’s clear?!

Sounds confusing, but it is fantastic – once you neatly line your lips, magically the lipstick you go on to apply will glide on in the shape you created. How? It states that it is a contour perfector and a colour blocker. It solves the issue of buying many liners for different lip shades, this one does it all! You need to check it out. £3.99, click here to buy it.

Highlighter … yes, if i could i would apply this daily all over my face and become a glow goddess. However, this trend has not gotten here yet so lets get on with the review haha!

I always look to find a good drugstore highlighter, so when i saw this limited edition one i was over the moon.

It says that it’s a powder highlighter but it does not apply with a fan brush. When i swatched it, i realised that it had a wet feel to it, almost like a dense paste, really weird consistency considering the fact it says “Powder”. I then tried out applying the product with my fingers and it is the most pigmented highlighter i have ever seen! Usually £6.99 but it’s on an offer for only £4.99, click here to buy.

I have been hard core dedicated to my ABH Brow Pomade, so picking this Brow Artist Shaper Pencil myst have been an impulsive decision while shopping. Oh, it’s in the shade 03 Brunette; with a wax side and a pigment side also as a little brush. I’m not a major fan of brow pencils, because of how sharp the brows turn out, but i think that i will use this to draw precise hair like lines in any additional sparse areas of my brows after shading them in. £4.99, click here to buy.

Lastly, the product which i’m most disappointed with. I never give negative reviews to products but i actually have nothing nice to say about it. It let me down as i wanted to love it!

It is the Super Liner Ultra Precision Eyeliner in Gold. The whole idea is to have the intensity of a classic black eyeliner with a shimmer of gold coming through. However, when i wanted to create a look with it, no colour would apply on my eyelids! All that would show was some shimmer of gold and very faded black after various attempts of application. Not a good look.  Then i decided to see if maybe the colour will apply on my hand, still with no luck.

As a final trial i drew some lines on paper – the top line was with a single coat, as you can see it fades so soon. Second line shows you 7 applications – the colour only just showed up.  I think that this product is store exclusive to Superdrug as i cannot find a link to it! It was around £4.99.

I have no idea whether i maybe just picked up a faulty liner, or if it’s like that to everyone?

Updated Eyebrow Routine: Even More On Fleek (3 min read)

Hi!

Eyebrows still seem to have a major impact in the world of beauty at the moment and my routine has slightly changed since my last post on this topic. To refresh your mind on it click here or simply carry on reading my updated eyebrow routine.


I use five products daily:
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer in “Dark Brown”

I use this product at the very start of the whole routine, it is two sided: one side has the product and the other has a special spooly. I use that spooly to brush my hairs in the direction of my forehead and this makes them look more voluminous once filled in.

I first use the thinner side of the product to draw hair like strokes at the front of my eyebrows and fill in any sparce gaps. Here, you want to stick to a natural look and it is yet not the right time to make them dramatic. Then I go on to use the thicker side of the product to draw a line on the bottom of both eyebrows. This acts as a guild line for the next few steps.

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade in “Dark Brown”

This is a miracle worker. It is very buildable and allows you to play around with it more than a powder would. It is almost of a clay texture and very pigmented, so be very careful on the amount that you put onto your angled brush. You want to make your brows dark at the tail, lighter in the middle and almost faded at the front. I know that every person has a different brow preference, but I like to keep them natural. Make the strokes of your brush stronger from the line that you drew with the ABH Brow Definer and go in an upwards motion. Avoid making a bold line on top of your brow if you to aim for a more natural look. Once I get the desired colour I brush through my brows with the ABH Brow Definer spooly once again to blend everything in. Don’t worry if the brows look messy – the next two products will help us tidy it all up.


3. M.A.C Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer in “NC20”

I then pick up a clean angled brush and apply some of this product onto it. I draw a line directly below the bottom of your brows to create that tidy look. It’s good to use a light shade of concealer or foundation under your brows  because it uplifts them and gives an illusion of gorgeous brow bones.


4. M.A.C Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in “NC 20”

Similar application to what we did with the M.A.C Cosmetics Pro Longwear concealer but this time we apply the foundation on top of your eyebrows. This once again tidies your brows and creates a sleek look. At this point feel free to add any more colour to your brows if you went over too much hairs with the foundation.


5. Maybelline Brow This Way Gel in “004 Clear”

Use any clear gel to set your brows and tah dah you are finished!
