L'oreal L'or Electric

Inspired by Cannes Film Festival L'Oreal release it's new L'Or Electric Collection (clearly my post is a tad late!) The collection is made up of two Infallible shadows, three lipsticks and three polishes although I am sure the shades vary in different countries. The first thing I realised is that come of the colours aren't really overly wearable an orangey shadows isn't usually what I'd go for and the shimmer in the lipsticks just isn't my cup of tea but lets take a closer look...
The two Infallible eyeshadows are in Metalic Lilac and Metalic Coral, they are basically pressed eyeshadows but it really works well. The pigmentation and texture is fantastic but I don't think I will use the coral colour very much but it might be worth a look if you have blue eyes, on the other hand the silver/lilac shade is perfect for easy smokey eyes.
I have no swatches of the lipstick yet but I will feature them in Nail of the Day posts very soon. the colours available in the Color Riche Nail Polishes part of this collection are 811: Magic Croisette, 809: Mystic Blue and 810: Mythical Carpet. The think that caught my attention about this product is that it apparently doesn't need base coat or top coat. Even out these the polish is suppose to be long wearing and not stain your nails, I experienced some tip wear after a day or so therefore I am not convinced about not needing a top coat. However when I removed my nail polish my nails weren't stained.
There are three lipsticks in Electric Fuchsia, Metallic Coral and  Prismatic Pink- all the colours are slightly sheer and shimmery. At first I was very excited about Prismatic Pink it looks like a pretty pale pink but really its a sheer shimmery colour which adds very little. The Electric Fushia is probably my favourite the colour is pretty and the shimmer is quite as obvious, I also don't mind Metallic Coral but the shimmer is just a little too much for me.
Excuse the mess, clearly my lipstick applying isn't up to scratch. Electiric Fushia: Above. Metalic Coral: Below.
This collection is already out and worth a look if you are on hunt for some summery bright colours and like shimmer. Available from Boots, Feel Unique and other L'Oreal retailers.

What do you think of the collection, have you tried anything?

  2. The only thing which I'm really tempted by is the dark blue nail polish, is it just me or does it all seem a bit heavy for a summer collection? x

  3. i saw these in boots yesterday but i decided not to purchase any regardless of how beautiful the colours are. I think i am more into lighter softer pastels for this summer :) The products are lovely and pigmented though and really great quality from L'oreal~
    Thanks for sharing~x

  10. I really like the look of those eyeshadows, especially the coral one it's very pretty, but I agree that it is a little unwearable. Maybe as a pop of colour with a tan? Great post, thanks :)
