L'oréal Pin-up collection
It's been the 68th annual Cannes film festival and as the official makeup sponsors of the event L'oréal have launched their pin-up collection.
We have two of the eye shadows in pin up pink 507 and French Riviera 505.
Shimmering finish pearl eye shadows with good colour pay off and no drop down. Shades lay down and blend easily providing sheer washes of colour. The eye shadows are £5.49 each.
Also for the eyes is L'oréal's first flexible tip liner pen in jet black.
The tip creates a really nice finish. Firm enough to apply colour and reach into the inner corners but flexible enough to move with the shape of the eye. Not too wet either so you don't get the product in your lashes. Ink dries off quickly too which helps prevent transfer. The superstar liner is £6.99.
Another mascara has joined the already vast L'oréal mascara line up. It is a dual ended mascara. One end coats the lashes in white micro fibres to build volume and separate the lashes. The other end is a curved, bristly brush which provides the intense black to the lashes. The mascara is very black and the slightly curved brush makes application easy. Gives a very spiky, separated finish but helps to curl the lashes well. The false lash superstar mascara is £10.99.
For the lips there is just the one colour in the collection called My sky is the limit 504. Extremely glossy, sticky texture but the colour doesn't translate as vibrant as you may expect. It's quite a translucent pink. To get the pink as bold as the image you would need a lipstick underneath also for sure. The gloss is £6.99.
The nail varnish in this collection although very pretty, feels a little disjointed. All of the colours seem to be more clashing rather than working in harmony. The nail varnish is called Dating coral 305. A rich coral with a sheen finish. Perfect on toes and fingers for the Summer. The nail varnish is £4.99.
Really nice products individually but not really a collection we would purchase to wear all together.
Available mid May.
