L’Oréal Paris always comes up with really new & exciting stuff for Cannes Film Festival! In 2014 it was L’Or Lumiere & this year it’s all about Glamorous Gloss & Marvellous Matte! Recently L’Oréal Paris had a grand press conference to unveil the collection with both Sonam Kapoor & Katrina Kaif present. I was a few items from the new collection to play with & asked to come up with my best gloss look. The collection this year includes L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire liquid lipsticks, L’Oréal Paris Super Liner Gel Intenza 36H in three shades as well as the existing L’Oréal Paris Moist Mat lipsticks, some of which have been released in limited edition, luxurious packaging encrusted with Swarovski crystals.
And now for my gloss look… *dun dun dun!*
Now for a quick breakdown of my look (it’s pretty simple, really!) Normally when it comes to lip products I tend to stick to matte so it was nice to venture out of my comfort zone a bit.
For the eyes, I just used my regular black liquid liner on my lid but I tried the new L’Oréal Gel Liner in Royal Blue on my waterline & I can say without a doubt that it is the best gel liner I have EVER used! So smooth & pigmented & it didn’t budge throughout the day. I know it isn’t too visible in these photos but it’s a lovely shade of cobalt & I’ll definitely be wearing it more often. For my lips, I started with the Moist Mat lipstick in Arabian Nights (it on the right in the photo at the bottom!) The bullet does make it look sort of purple but in reality it’s a very deep, almost gothic burgundy… right up my alley. I then layered on the Color Riche Extraordinaire in Plum Quartet. On it’s own it’s a medium coverage lilac gloss but layered over Arabian Nights it created this deep, true purple lip color. I know it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but I loved wearing it, besides it matched the purple in my hair!
What do you think of my Glamorous Gloss look? Would you experiment with purple lips?
