L'Oreal Lovin'

Hi everyone, hope you're doing well! I've being a bit absent from the blogosphere for the past couple of weeks due to having no laptop and lots of exams! But here I am with an AMAZING new laptop writing a post! :D As you may know I'm a lover of high street make-up, but I also love the odd bit of luxury. I feel that L'Oreal make-up gives you something in between as it's probably the most expensive brand in the 'drugstore' so I decided to do a post on my L'Oreal faves. 

L-R: 'Superliner' eyeliner, 'Nude Magique' CC Cream, Glossy Lipstain, Micellar water, Telescopic mascara (waterproof), Telescopic mascara (original) and Volume Million Lashes Mascara.

I'm sure you're aware of my love for The L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Solution if you have read my previous posts, as I've featured it in a couple of 'recent purchases' and done a review here. It's just as good as bioderma and for a fiver, you can't really go wrong. (however I'd love it if an even cheaper brand came out with one!)

Next, is the L'Oreal Paris Glamshine Stain Splash which I have in 'Juliet'. It is a great stain that makes your lips looks nice and glossy and it stays on for-everrrrrr. It's the longest lasting lip product I have come across, anyway.

The L'Oreal Superliner is my favourite eye liner as it is in the form of a felt tip pen. It gives precise application which is perfect for me, as full-on liquid liners don't agree with my often shakey hands!

Lastly, is the Nude Magique CC Cream that I plan to take on holiday to wear during the day. It gives some colour to the face and has SPF 12 in it. I don't like putting a high SPF on my face as I like to get quite a bit of colour there, however I think at the start of my holiday I'd have to use my La Roche Posay facial SPF 30 to give sufficient protection. I love the idea of a bit of coverage alongside skin benefits and protection, so this is great! I got the 'Anti Redness' one which has smart pigment capsules to make the face appear less red. This is great for me on holiday, as my face goes even more red than normal when I'm in the heat.


One thing that L'Oreal do the best out of ALL make-up brands (big statement!) is their mascaras. They are simply incredible and better than any others I've tried. The Telescopic Mascara is more of a lengthening mascara and Volume Million Lashes is more of a volumising mascara. I use Telescopic on a day to day basis as it really extends my lashes but doesn't make them look clumpy or over-done. I have recently bought the waterproof version so that I can take it on my jolly hols to wear poolside. The Volume Million Lashes mascara makes my lashes look great and thick, so it's perfect for going out on a night time.

So there are some of my favourite L'Oreal bits. I also love their shampoo's especially the Elvive Repair Shampoo (forgot to include it!) I would love to try more L'Oreal products, in particular their infallible eyeshadows and their lipsticks. 

Let me know what your faves are from the brand or even what your favourite beauty band is!!
