Gold?! For Christmas?! Mind-blowing. Hear me out…
This autumn, L’Oreal have launched “5 Iconic Color Riche shades, wrapped in 24-Carat Gold for a statement metallic look”. Gold Obsession is a range of buttery textured lipsticks with the signature L’Oreal scent (anyone else get play-doh?) but this time encompassing real gold to create a unique metallic finish.
Metallic lippies are having a real moment right now, with Kylie Jenner’s Metal Matte’s being a favourite amongst fans and bloggers alike, there’s also the Colour Pop metals range and now, on the UK High Street, we have this offering from L’Oreal.
L’Oreal have created something different in that this is a classic lipstick formula, while the others are of the ever popular liquid lipstick variety. This means that the L’Oreal ones are much more nourishing, but will of course have a shorter life span on the lips.
The formula is like other L’Oreal Colour Riche shades, one of my favourite on the high street and the product comes in a matte black to metallic gold ombre bullet – pretty luxe for £6.99. I have the Nude Gold shade because I’m predictable and love a nude lips but after seeing swatches, I’m going to need the pink one too.
Alongside the range, and sticking with the gold theme, the brand have released the L’Or Highlight which is in the most amazing creamy formula. I’m usually a massive fan of the MAC cream colour bases for a cream highlight however this, for me, has taken the top spot. It’s so much more pigmented and delivers an unrivaled metallic finish on the tops of cheekbones. Despite this, it’s not over powering and could be worn by those who prefer a subtle look. It blends like a dream and stays put all day. One for the shopping list I suggest.
Superdrug had a 3 for 2 on L’Oreal products, so I also picked up the much loved Telescopic Mascara (definitely not because of the gold packaging) and I have to admit it’s well worth the hype. It has such a small, thin brush with what looks like very few bristles, yet it somehow manages to coat every lash and add great length and volume.
Overall, a good bunch of products and I’ll definitely be back for more/ a lot of backups of that gorgeous highlight. I insist you buy it too.
