The L’Oreal x Balmain lipsticks * were one of the most highly anticipated launches for me in 2017. I had the pleasure of announcing the launch on L’Oreal’s website, Makeup.com, so I knew a lot about the lipsticks prior to their release and the more I learned about them, the more excited I got! The packaging is stunning and the formula is the same Colour Riche formula I love so I was immediately sold. Plus, a drugstore collection this luxurious doesn’t just happen everyday!
The lipsticks were all designed by Olivier Rousteing and are broken down into three tribes (Glamazone, Couture, and Rock); each having four shades within them. Glamzone contains bold, warm toned nudes; Couture is made up of classic Parisian shades; and Rock eatures shades on the edgier side.
The lipstick collection is both edgy and powerful. Two of my favourite shades are “Urban Safari” and “Fever” from the Glamazone tribe. “Urban Safari” is my ideal nude and one I have been wearing a ton recently. It looks great with minimal makeup since it doesn’t wash me out but looks equally as nice paired with a smoky eye. “Fever” on the other hand is a bit bolder. The warm orange compliments my hair nicely and I think I’ll get a lot of use out of this in the summer too!
If you like the L’Oreal Colour Riche formula, you’ll love these since they are the same creamy, comfortable, and long-lasting formula!
I really can’t express how much I love this collection. The packaging is so luxurious, the lipsticks themselves are lovely, and the campaign is all about female empowerment. Really, what’s not to love?
If you want to get your hands on this collection and haven’t already, I recommend you do so fast! It has been out a little while now and is limited edition!
