Before MAC Cosmetics came into my world there was L’Oreal HIP. At one point I owned just about all of their eye shadows. You really can’t beat their prices–especially when your local drugstore is running a Buy 1, Get 1 Free sale.
Girl yes….L’Oreal HIP’s eyeshadows are the ish. Especially for my newbies out there.
L’O HIP has recently released two more lines of eye shadows: mattes and metallics. I can dig it! This means more versatility for looks. Because I already have so many bright shadows, I decided to pick up one from each line; both are safe colors but I love them just the same.
Matte Shadow Duo
Metallic Shadow Duo
I primed my eyes with this:
Yes, I LOVE L’Oreal HIP’s Cream Paint in Witty. I actually use this on top of Too Faced’s Shadow Insurance to really make my color POP.
I suggest checking out my video because I feel like the looks look A LOT better in person than they do in these photos.
I am impressed with these duos and plan on purchasing more in the near future—but not until a Buy 1, Get 1 Free sale comes along. I have a long way to go before I master the art of applying matte eye shadows but L’Oreal HIP’s seem to do good job. I didn’t get any fall-out. And the metallic shadows really are bling-tastic.
You can purchase these duos from around $8.99-$9.99 at Ulta and drugstores.
Whatcha think? Would you invest in these babies or not so much?
