Reviewing Two New L'Oreal Products

Colour Riche Shine lipstick

I love this lipstick! I got it in the shade 904 "Varnished Rosewood." It's a really "my lips, but better" shade, which is exactly what I was looking for when I found it! I'd say this color is best described as a warm rose with a hint of brown that gives it that expensive appearance. It's got a really nice glossy shine, too!...Shine isn't usually something I seek out in lip products, but this is perfect for a fresh every day look! I do think I'm going to get more of these in different shades at some point, but I couldn't be more pleased with the one I picked. If this sounds like something up your street I'd definitely give it a go!

Lumi Glow Amour

This product is just okay. I'm sad to say I'm not blown away by it. I thought it'd be a good substitute for higher end illuminating drops - it's not that it isn't, it's just not that mind-blowing either.

As you can see in this picture this is how it looks on the skin before you rub it in, but unfortunately once you do it wipes right off and becomes sheer. This would make it ideal to use as a base for powder highlighter, but I was looking for more than a base. I really hoped this would be a liquid highlighter that mirrors the appearance of a solid and this just misses the mark for me. However, if you want to add some irredescence to your foundation or put it on your eyelids (I've done this a few times) then it does have it's uses. Daybreak is very pearlescent and glowing with a sort-of champagne-like tone. Perhaps I'll try adding it to a moisturizer for an added sparkle! If I come up with any more groundbreaking uses for it I'll be sure to come back with an update! Otherwise, I feel it was a bit of a waste at $11.99.
