Happy Friday! The weather is miserable and cold here, but at least I have some gorgeous new L’Oreal lippies to show you today 🙂 This is the beautiful new La Vie En Rose collection, which literally translates to Life in Pink!
The La Vie En Rose collection contains five new lipstick shades, of which I have four. This is L’Oreal’s latest lipstick collection inspired by world famous celebrities and film stars.
So let’s take a look at the shades –
- Blake – a bright mid coral pink shade, perfect for cooler fair complexions.
- Eva – a deeper mauve pink shade, that works well on darker skin with warm undertones.
- Naomi – a light muted peach pink, that brightens up fair to very fair complexions.
- Helen – a sheer nude iridescent pink shade, perfect for fair skin tones.
I love that these lipsticks have been created specifically with different skin tones and colourings in mind – if you’re not sure which you are, and which shade would suit you the best, I’d recommend looking at the above celebrities and seeing who your skin tone is most similar to.
The lipsticks come in a fantastic range of shades, from a very light iridescent shimmer (Helen) to a bright coral pink (Blake). They have a lovely creamy satin finish, which is comfortable to wear without drying the lips. The pigmentation isn’t the most intense that I’ve ever seen, but I think that makes these lipsticks perfect for every day wear as they’re not too intense. I managed to get a good three hours wear out of Blake (my favourite shade) and that included eating a biscuit and drinking a brew!
Now I know packaging doesn’t actually mean anything in terms of how well a product performs, but I wanted to mention the packaging because it really is top quality for a high street brand. The cases are matte black, with each celebrities’ signature printed on in gold, and the lipsticks have gold bullet casings (is that the right word?) with L’Oreal embossed into the side. The beautiful packaging really does make these lipsticks extra special!
So overall I’m really impressed with this collection, from the idea of the range, to the packaging and of course the actual lipsticks. These lipsticks are perfect for every day wear, and affordable enough so you can pick up a couple without and makeup buying ‘guilt’! (You know what I mean, we’ve all had it!)
The L’Oréal Paris Exclusive Pinks collection is available now from Boots, at £6.99 each.
