3 products you need to try from L'oreal

There are certain brands that just get certain things right. For example Makeup Revolution, their eyeshadows are always insane, or Mac, everyone and their mum want's a lipstick from there. But L'oreal isn't a brand I've ever really dabbled in if I'm being honest, I always classed it as the highend of the drugstore and much preferred to stick with good ol Maybelline and Rimmel.


However it's a new year and in that whole new year new me spirit I decided to expand my horizons and pick up some bits from L'oreal to try. Now I'll be honest, there were a fair few hits and a couple of oh god no's as Nikkitutorials would say, but there were three products that stood out to me from the rest and they're definitely the ones I'd recommend the most and am glad I tried out.
Firstly a foundation, I tried three from L'oreal but the one that got my vote was the Infallible 24hr in the shade 120 Vanilla. It's got an impressive coverage which is what I look for in a foundation and actually really reminded me of my favourite foundation of all time, Mac studio fix fluid. It blends out really well and last all on me without settling in to my fine lines. The only one complaint I have is that I find it oxidises quite a lot on me, luckily not so bad that it's noticeable but on fairer skins than me it may end up looking quite orange.

Another skin product that stood out to me was the L'oreal golden highlighter. This is the most satisfying texture ever, its in a pot where it feels very creamy but then once you've applied it, it dries like a powder. It's goes on without looking cloggy and reminds me of a slightly more noticeable Mary Lou-manizer. I've actually also used this on my eyes as a lid colour and it worked really well too!

The last product was the L'oreal gold obsession lipstick. I've never had a lipstick like this before but it's an incredibly unique colour- well obviously because it's gold... Although I wouldn't wear this lipstick on it's own unless maybe I was going to a festival, I started putting this over the top of my nude coloured lipsticks and it leaves a really pretty metallic sheen over the top. My favourite lipstick to pair it with is Modesty by Mac and it just adds a little something extra and is definitely a must in any makeup collection I think.

So these are my top three picks from L'oreal but I'll definitely be trying more products from them to find some more that I love. If you've got any favourite products from L'oreal then please let me know so I can try them out. Thanks for reading.
