Top 3 L’Oreal Make-up Products

L’Oreal is one of those brands that have a great make-up range, at affordable prices, with a great selection of products. I am particularly fond of their mascaras and lip glosses.
L’Oreal Glam Shine lipgloss come in a range of fruity shades, with a fantastic heart shaped applicator. My favourite colours are 174 Sheer Peach, a peachy coral gloss with pink shimmer, 172 Sheer Watermelon, a ‘honeysuckle’ pink with pink shimmer, & 175 Sheer Papaya, a vibrant sheer orange with pink shimmer. The texture of the gloss is sheer, so colour pay off depends on how much you apply. The gloss does not feel tacky at all which is surprising as they last very well on lips. The shimmer is not gritty as the particles as so small – overall these glosses are great for giving lips a hint of colour, crystal shine, and volume all the same time. Currently they are on offer in Superdrug for 3 for 2. Bargain!
Boots are currently promoting the L’Oreal mascara range for 2 for £15.
I picked up the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara & the L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black x5 Mascara. I have been using L’Oreal Telescopic mascara for years! I love the thin high precision flexible brush as I find it can coat both the top and bottom lashes. The consistency of the product is also great – it not only provides minimal coverage for an ‘au natural’ look, but you can easily build up with this mascara to provide think voluminous lashes.
“Up to 60% longer lashes IN JUST 1 STEP”, I don’t know how this percentage was worked out, but I think it’s a slight exaggeration. I have naturally thick, long lashes anyway, so with one step they do appear A LOT longer and curlier - 60% longer though? I don’t think so!
Overall, a great mascara, that doesn’t clump, is easily buildable, and can be used for both a natural look, and a dramatic look.
L’Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black x5 Mascara is another great mascara. I feel that considering the price you pay for more high end make up products, L’Oreal mascaras are really comparable for a fraction of the cost. This particular mascara gives great volume to your lashes and really gives you that false lash effect. You have to be careful with application, as the extra volume brush is quite big so I suggest you apply your mascara before applying eye shadow, until you get used to the applicator.

What are your favourite L’Oreal products?
