L'Oreal Cannes Collection 2015 - L’Oreal Paris Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Coral encore, Color Riche Moist Matte Lipstick in Arabian Nights and Super Liner Gel intenza in Sapphire Blue - Review

Every year during the Cannes season, L’Oreal Cannes Collection of makeup products are something to look forward to. Last year, I adored their collection. Like so, they have launched few makeup products that will leave all us makeup-junkies drooling!

This year, in a successful attempt to make us all go weak in the knee, the theme was Gloss Vs Matte. The team glamorous gloss was led by one of their brand ambassadors Katrina Kaif and the team Marvelous Matte was led by none other than our own fashion diva Sonam Kapoor.

As a part of their promotions I got to try their gel eyeliner, a liquid lipstick and a matte lipstick. I have to admit that though I got it quite some time back, i took my own sweet time to test each of them.

REVIEW

The packing of all these products look amazing and classy. They went slightly overboard on their lipstick packing and got it all studded with swarowski crystals. Honestly, I am not a fan of it. These look (at least for me) like those rhinestones which we use in blingy nail arts.

Apart from that I completely adored the packing. The velvet case for the lippie is indeed a cherry on the cake!

Let me start with my mini review with my favourite product i.e., the lip gloss! The concept is somewhat similar to the Maybelline lip polishes. I got the shade coral encore which is a dream come true for neutral lipstick lovers. I never thought that a glossy shade could look this good on me. (I hate glossy lips). True to its name, it is a gorgeous coral shade with teeny tiny purple & silver shimmers. Despite the shimmers, it does not look tacky at all.

It stays put for around 2 hours on my lips after which the glossiness starts to fade and I am left with a pretty coral tint and an extremely unflattering residue of shimmers! Though the shimmers do not look THAT obvious for people to point out, I am not comfortable with it. So once it starts to fade, I wipe it off completely! That is much better.

The shade I got is a very vampy deep plum lipstick which leans more to the purple side. When I saw it first I thought it to be similar to the shade pure garnet from their star collection. But unlike pure garnet which is a true deep vampy plum, this shade is a very deep sober purple. Both of the shades are however completely matte and looks amazing. It brings out the diva in you without much effort on the makeup side. A true Sonam Shade! But as you all might have known by now, I am not a fan of such attention grabbing shade. After years of blogging, I just recently got Ruby Woo! This shade easily stays put for 5 hours with mild snacking in between and leaves a strong stain behind. It is not particularly drying but it is always good to slather lip balms during the course of the wear time.

I love L'Oreal’s gel liners but I have not tried any other shade apart from black. When I saw this name, I was quite sceptical. Sporting bright blue eyeliners are not my forte. But when I swatched it, I realized that this is such a beauty. It is a dark navy blue Though it is a completely matte crème, it also has that small silver specs suspended here and there. I don’t understand the reason behind the shimmer as it does not look obvious at all. It does not look OTT and is a refreshing yet subtle change from the everyday black eyeliners. The texture is buttery smooth and is a dream to work with. Be it winged or thin, it is super easy with this liner. The brush that comes with this eyeliner is the typical small flat brush that accompanies the L’Oreal and Maybelline liners.

Due to the smooth texture, this takes a lil bit more time to set and once set, it stays pretty much the whole day!

I love this year’s collection from L’Oreal though I find their liquid lipstick and lipstick little over priced for a drug store brand.
