L’Oreal Paris Miss Denim Glam Matte
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect spring mattes, then the L’Oreal Paris Miss Denim Glam Matte collection will probably tick that box. A collection of four vibrant colours, they’re exactly the lift in colour mood that warm days require.
Lynsey Alexander, L’Oreal Paris UK Make-Up Artist, showed me how to apply – if you see how the product goes on in the swatch – a little thick and shiny – you need to buff it into the lip to get a smudged matte effect that doesn’t look at all heavy.
See? L’Oreal Paris Miss Denim Glam Matte looks completely different once it’s had a little buff with a finger. The mattes claim a non-drying formula – but don’t they all? – I haven’t put it to the test yet (if it turns out super-drying I will flag up). I’ve swatched all the colours, but be warned, my camera went into melt-down faced with the blurring effect, so they are a little, er, blurry!
Shades from left to right are: Cherry Pop Red, Fuschia Flare, Zip It Red and Coral Denimista.
As part of the Miss Denim collection, there are also four shades of Jeans Effect nail polishes. The texture is what we would already know as sand with a rough finish. Although the colours are great, personally, I feel the texture belongs to last year (or the year before). Finally, there are two Bright Eyes Superliner Perfect Slim in a teal blue and vibrant green – I accidentally left the lid off mine (I know.. yet another #bloggerfail) and it’s dried out totally.
The L’Oreal Paris Miss Denim Glam Matte collection launches in May; Glam Mattes are £7.99, Miss Denim Nails are £4.99 and Superliners are £6.99.
