L’Oreal Paris So Couture Look

I’ve been testing quite a few L’Oreal Paris bits and bobs and you know, there’s no better way of incorporating a little ‘show and tell’ than slappin’ all that make-up over my face. I’ve created a rather simple make-up look which is something I reckon you’re already accustomed to. The base is rather natural and even though I don’t usually go for strong eyes and lips – this time I’ve gone all out in that department. L’Oreal Paris So Couture Look demonstrates a juicy red lip, a fab matte eye shadow ideal for contouring, mascara that is quickly shooting up my top three list and an eyeliner which makes cat eye reachable, even for us clumsy gals. Oh, I shouldn’t forget mentioning a very special pair of falsies I’ve used for this look – its center piece, if you will. You’ll have a chance to learn more about them in the following post. Let’s start from the beginning – let’s start from the base. I’ve applied my HG foundation, the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat (B50) all over and paid special attention to dark under-eye circles with a careful dab of the Bourjois Happy Light creamy concealer in Beige Dore (23). I’ve finished my base off with a light dusting of Revelique Soft Compact Powder in Beige (20) and that’s where I stopped as far as my base goes. I’ve only added a quick dab of the subtle and charming NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam on the tops of my cheekbones. Eyebrows were filled in with Revelique Eyebrow Pencil in Brown (20), as always. I haven’t used any eyeshadow base and have just added a touch of the NYX’s Sunbeam illuminator at the center of my eyelids.

U posljednje vrijeme testiram prilican broj L’Oreal Paris proizvoda i, kao sto znate, nema boljeg nacina da vam docaram kakve performanse odredjeni kozmeticki komadi pruzaju od dobre, stare demonstracije. U tu svrhu sam kreirala relativno jednostavan make-up look, nesto na sto ste vjerujem do sada i navikle od mene. Baza je prilicno prirodna te, iako obicno ne naglasavam oci i usne istovremeno – ovaj put sam sebi dala oduska. L’Oreal Paris So Couture Look se sastoji od socnih crvenkastih usana, fantasticne mat sjene za oci koja je izvrsna za definiranje pregiba oka, maskare koja se ubrzano priblizava mojim favoritima te tusa za oci koji ‘mackaste’ okice cini dostiznim i nama, malo manje vjestima na ovom polju. I naravno, ne bih smjela zaboraviti spomenuti veoma poseban par trepavica koje su na svoj nacin i zvijezda ovog look-a. Imati cete priliku da se poblize upoznate sa njima u narednom postu a sada, krenimo od samog pocetka. Nanijela sam svoju HG tecnu podlogu preko cijelog lica i radi se o kome drugom nego o YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat tecnoj podlozi (B50). Posebnu paznju sam obratila na tamne kolutove oko ociju koje sam ublazila uz pomoc Bourjois Happy Light kremastog korektora u nijansi Beige Dore (23). Fiksirala sam i djelimicno matirala ten koristeci se Revelique Soft Compact puderom u nijansi Beige (20) i tu sam otprilike zavrsila vecinu posla oko baze. Samo sam jos cistim jagodicama prstica dodala malo NYX Born To Glow tecnog iluminatora u nijansi Sunbeam na vrhove jagodica. Obrve su, kao i obicno, popunjene sa Revelique olovkom u nijansi Brown (20). Nisam koristila bazu za sjenu a samo sam na sredinu kapka utapkala jos malo NYX Sunbeam iluminatora.

Than I’ve packed my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush with L’Oreal Paris Matte L’Ombre Pure eyeshadow in Breaking Nude (106). These eyeshadows are really interesting as the texture is buttery smooth and pigmentation is amazing – not crumbly at all, despite this particular eyeshadow having a matte finish. This cocoa brown with a cool undertone is perfect for defining the eye socket and that’s exactly what I did here. I’ve curled my eyelashes and added a lick of L’Oreal Paris So Couture Volume Million Lashes Mascara. Since this look features falsies, it doesn’t do justice to this mascara which is seriously amazing. Everyone asks if I’m actually wearing falsies when I’m not and it’s down to this little miracle worker. Will give it a separate review soon. I’ve gently applied my Ardell Black Tie eyelashes which are stunning. They’re very special in shape and the way added shiny stones sparkle on the light. I’ve filled the gaps and seamed the eyelash line with the help of L’Oreal Paris So Couture Super Liner. This guy has a long, very thin nib and gives precise application. This one actually can make thin and thick lines equally well and it’s longevity is spot on. I’m not sure if I’d swap my Bourjois Liner Pinceau liner for it but it’s up there. Finally, lips were prepped with softening Korres Jasmine Lip Butter than adorned with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Intense Lipstick in Deep Raspberry (375). It is true what they say about L’Oreal Paris lipsticks – they do have that classic, powdery lipstick smell but (oddly enough) it doesn’t bother me. This reddish/berry shade has a beautiful texture which is hydrating but doesn’t slide off my lips after few minutes. It does have a shine which isn’t over the top and is very creamy. The ‘Deep Raspberry’ shade is especially beautiful and warms up my complexion instantly. I hope you will like the look and these mini ‘flash’ reviews. I’ve warmed up to L’Oreal Paris as a brand – mascara is awaiting to be reviewed so keep your eyes peeled.

Potom sam vrhom Real Techniques Base Shadow kista pokupila sloj L’Oreal Paris Matte L’Ombre Pure sjene za oci u nijansi Breaking Nude (106) i nanijela je u pregib oka. Ova linija sjena za oci mi se cini interesantnom posto im je tekstura puterasta  a pigmentacija prilicno dobra – npr.sjena koju posjedujem, iako je mat finisa, uopste se ne rasipa. Ova kakao smedja nijansa hladnijeg podtona je idealna za definiranje pregiba oka i upravo sam je iskoristila u tu svrhu. Trepavice sam uvila i preko njih nanijela samo jedan sloj L’Oreal Paris So Couture Volume Million Lashes maskare. Sa obzirom na to da sam za ovaj look koristila lazne trepavice, maskara zaista i nije u centru paznje koju itekako zasluzuje. Zato cu ovu maskaru poblize recenzirati u zasebnom postu. Samo cu reci da mi se iskazala kao favorit iz razloga sto me dosta osoba upitalo da li nosim lazne trepavice kada sam samo nju nosila. Prilicno je posebnog efekta. Nakon priprema, pazljivo sam nanijela Ardell Black Tie trepavice koje su naprosto prekrasne. Jedinstvenog su oblika a crni kamencici koji svjetlucaju im daju poseban sarm. Popunila sam dijelove duz trepavica gdje se vidjela koza i uopsteno ‘zagladila’ rub trepavica sa L’Oreal Paris So Couture Super Liner tusem. Ovaj malisan je vrsta tusa u obliku flomastera i njegov vrh je izuzetno tanak i duguljast. Sa njim sam bez bilo kakvih problema iscrtala tanke ali i deblje linije a takodjer mu je trajnost izuzetno pohvalna (cijeli radni dan). Jos uvijek nisam sigurna da li bih svog miljenika, Bourjois Liner Pinceau, mogla u potpunosti zamijeniti L’Oreal tusem ali – jako mu je blizu po ucinkovitosti. Napokon, usne sam pripremila omeksavajucim Korres Jasmine butterom za usne a potom sam ih namazala sa L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Intense ruzem za usne u nijansi Deep Raspberry (375). Istina je sto kazu za L’Oreal Paris ruzeve da posjeduju onaj klasicni, pudrasti miris sminke. Uopste mi nije neprijatan, cak mi se i dopada taj retro mirisni stih. Crvenkasta nijansa bobicastog voca je krasne teksture koja je hidratantna no ne sklizne sa usana nakon par minuta. Njeznog je sjaja, no ne i isuvise upadnog te je divno kremasta. Nijansa ‘Deep Raspberry’ je narocito lijepa i ‘utopli’ ten za cas posla. Nadam se da ce vam se look i mini recenzije dopasti. Moram priznati da me kao brend, L’Oreal Paris pocinje osvajati – maskara ceka na svoju recenziju, stoga drzite MB blog na oku ukoliko vas zanima.
