Mood [Bewildered]
Currently Playing [None]


With my favourite season just around the corner, it means new launches from one of my favourite drugstore brands, L’Oreal. For Fall, the company has a few new face products that I am very excited to test out. Keep scrolling down below to see my initial thoughts of the new items. (Full reviews of each products will come later)
 

Magic BB Anti-Redness & Magic BB Anti-Fatigue (For All Skin Tones)
Being a huge fan of the L’Oreal Magicc BB Cream (reviewed here), it is no wonder that I’m so exited about these two new products from the same line. They are both formulated with Beautifying Beads, encapsulated, color-transforming pigments that counteract signs of fatigue or redness.
 

I should tell you that these two products are not meant to be foundations nor do they really provide much coverage. I treat them more of a really good base for evening, hydrating and perfecting skin tones. I would then still need to put a little bit of concealer to cover up my imperfections. Both products’ suggested retail price is $16.99 CAD
 

Colour Riche Luminous Ombres Eyeshadow
A pre-harmonized palette of colour. Colour Riche introduces new Luminous Ombrés™, a collection of sensually rich colours that can be used dry or wet, for even more intensity.
 

Initial thoughts are not too positive regarding these eyeshadows. The colour payoff is minimal and I find that there’s more shimmer than actual colour. Some of the lighter shades of the palette doesn’t even show up on my skin. I haven’t tried the wet method yet, so maybe that will make a difference? Suggested Retail Price $11.99 CAD
 

Visible Lift Blur Foundation
Discover instantly ageless skin. Visible Lift Blur™ features Opti-Blur™ technology with a cushiony soft texture that glides on to blur the look of lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone in seconds. Skin looks flawlessly smooth, instantly perfected.
 

So far, I love the texture of this foundation. Without a doubt, it goes on really smooth and makes my skin look so incredibly flawless. It is a very watery foundation so if you like thicker texture, then this is not for you. The only downside is that I was given the shade Creamy Natural, which was too pink and light for my skin-tone. I think Natural Buff or Natural or Natural Beige would have been more fitting.
 

Colour Riche Eye Primer
For an eye look that’s supremely riche, L’Oréal Paris introduces new Colour Riche® Eye Primer. Use it alone to even the skin tone around the eyes or underneath your favourite eye shadow for an even richer colour impact and flawless wear. Not the worst eyeshadow primer in the market but does not replace my HG Urban Decay Potion Primer. What I really like about this primer is that it does have a hint of colour to it. (Swatch on the bottom of this post) Thus, it can be used as a concealer as well. Plus, it really does help the shadow lash throughout the day. The downside of this primer is that I find it to be a bit too drying. So sometimes it may look patchy around some area of the eye. Suggested Retail Price $9.99 CAD
 

Colour Riche Pop Balm
Indulge your lips with Pop Balm from L’Oréal Paris. This tinted lip balm provides a hint of luscious, kissable colour, smoothing lips for a full 8 hours of continuous hydration. Lips are softer and suppler all day long—and keeps conditioning even after it has been removed. Love the pigmentation of this lip-balm, which is much better than the original Balm. (Swatch on the bottom of this post) Lips feel smooth after use; high recommend. Suggested Retail Price $9.99 CAD
 

Super Liner Mat-Matic Eyeliner
Discover ultimate perfection, dressed in a velvet matte finish. Super Liner Mat-Matic features carbon technology for a long-wearing intensely matte finish. This automatic, waterproof eyeliner offers supreme precision in an effortless stroke, for a look that is simply sophisticated.
 

Glides smoothly onto the eye and stays on all day. This is definitely a waterproof liner that I have no problem using on my waterline. (Swatch on the bottom of this post) The fact that its retractable is another advantage. I also love how it comes with a sharpener at the end so it will always be sharp when lining. Suggested Retail Price $11.99 CAD
