Happy Sunday, dolls. Hope you’re all having a good weekend – it goes too quickly! The lovely people from L’Oreal recently sent me their new eye collection & thought I’d review it for you all. It consists of a mascara, liquid liner & a gel liner.
False Lash Telescopic Mascara – RRP £10.99
Gel Intenza Eyeliner – RRP £8.99
Superliner Perfect Slim – RRP £6.49
False Lash Telescopic Mascara (RRP £10.99) - I’m not a huge fan of Cheryl Cole who is the face of this mascara, but big props to her and L’Oreal giving us a TRUE representation of the product in their advert!! They didn’t use ‘lash inserts’ – woohoo!
This mascara comes nicely packaged in a ‘telescope’ like silver tube. The wand is a rubber wand (if you know what I mean!) with a slight curve. In a weird way, it’s actually different to pretty much every mascara I have ever owned. Imagine, They’re Real by Benefit without the volume… Perfect for everyday wear. I have been asked if I’ve been wearing a pair of falsies when I’ve worn this. Below are some pictures of my lashes before & after wearing the product.
As you can see from the pictures, it clearly lifts, curls & lengthens my lashes. This is perfect for me as a daily wear mascara. It’s not too much & not too little. I hate wearing mascara when it doesn’t do anything to my lashes & this is far from that! I would totally buy this or recommend it to anyone looking for a daily wear mascara.
Next on to the liners…
Gel Intenza Eyeliner in black (RRP £8.99) – Love the packaging of this gel liner, black, gold & glass totally go! This gel liner is incredibly smooth & creamy. With the help of the brush it comes with (which is REALLY GOOD!) it applies like a dream for when I’m after a thin or thick lined eye. L’Oreal claim that it lasts for up to 24 hours – this for me is not true. It does last all day however it does crumble towards the end of the day if I end up touching the product. Personally, I would actually get the ‘black gold’ colour as it looks gorgeous & isn’t something which is out there in the high-street gel liner market! If you’re after a gel liner from a drugstore, I would recommend Maybelline but I HATE the brush in that. So, if you don’t mind that it can get dry towards the end of the day this would be ideal for you.
Superliner Perfect Slim (RRP £6.49) – This ‘superliner’ is probably my favourite out of the collection. This does not crumble for me at the end of the day & is great for all kinds of eye liner styles! Price wise, it doesn’t break the bank also. Usually, I don’t like the ‘felt tip’ nib but this is extremely precise & is amazing for getting my eye liner just how I want it
Below are some swatches & what the products look like on my eyes – I am also wearing the L’Oreal mascara in the pictures as well… LOVE how long it makes my lashes look!
I have used the mascara the most & the gel liner the least. Saying that, I will be getting the ‘Black Gold’ gel liner with my Boots points (as soon as I have enough!) LOL. Personally, I would recommend the mascara & super liner to those who want natural looking lashes & a precision eye liner look!
Have you tried anything from the new L’Oreal eye collection? Will you be picking anything up from it?
Have a lovely weekend, sweet peas!
