L'Oreal Paris - New Makeup Releases

I was lucky to recently be sent a bag of L'Oreal Paris new makeup releases to trial and review for you.

I was so excited that of course I started using everything immediately the minute after I had unboxed and photographed them! 

Yes, I love discovering and playing with new makeup!

Here are my first impressions of the makeup items I received.

L'Oreal Paris New Release Makeup 

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks

These first items are not strictly speaking brand new to me.

The L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks were released in July this year and I reviewed them at that time as part of the beautyheaven trial team. 

Regular readers of Fabulous and Fun Life will probably remember that I also published a review of these lipsticks on this blog too. Click HERE to read my full review.

I was so excited to see three of these L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks included in the bag of goodies I received, in the shades:
  • 103 Blush In A Rush
  • 346 Scarlet Silhouette
  • 463 Plum Tuxedo.
Although I already had the first shade listed, fortunately I didn't have the other two.

L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks

These matte lipsticks contain both camellia and jojoba oils and as a result are THE most comfortable and hydrating matte lipsticks I've ever worn. 

They have a beautiful velvety smooth feel.

The pigmentation is wonderfully matter than matte, with an intense colour payoff.

The colour you see is the colour you get on your lips.

L-R: Blush In A Rush, Scarlet Sihouette, Plum Tuxedo.

These lipsticks are long lasting although I did need to reapply them after eating but this is fairly standard for me with all lipsticks.

The L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Matte Addiction Lipsticks have a recommended retail price of $21.95.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Paint

Also included in my package of new L'Oreal Paris makeup releases were two Infallible Matte Lip Paints in the shades:
  • 211 Babe-in
  • 212 Nude-ist 
L'Oreal Infallible Matte Lip Paint L-R: Babe-in & Nude-ist.

These lip paints come in two different finishes, a high gloss lacquer and a velvet matte.

Both products I received were velvet mattes. 

I found these liquid lip paints to have high impact pigmentation

L'Oreal Lip Paints L-R: 211 Babe-In, 212 Nude-ist

The lip paint glided on smoothly and easily using the slanted tear drop shaped applicator.

These lip paints also have a lovely scent that I noticed upon application.

The L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Paints have a recommended retail price of $19.95.

L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation

I love a sunkissed glowy look and the L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow delivers it!

I received all three different shades of this liquid foundation, namely the 
  • Light
  • Medium Light
  • Medium Dark
I found the Light shade to match my skin the best, although this might change as I become a bit more tanned in Summer.

L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundations

This foundation feels amazingly lightweight on yet provides a beautiful natural looking coverage. It has that 'my skin but better' look, resulting in a beautiful sunkissed glowy look!

It has added moisture and light reflecting pigments to provide for supple skin with a radiant glow.

This will definitely be a favourite foundation of mine over summer.

The L'Oreal Paris Glam Beige Healthy Glow Foundation has a recommended retail price of $24.95.

It is currently on special at Priceline for $19.95. Click HERE to check it out on the Priceline website.

L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll

I love the retro packaging of this  Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll mascara with the soft pink and blue. It reminds me of the show Happy Days.

L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll

This mascara worked well for me in lengthening my lashes and curling them. Once applied I didn't need to touch up my mascara all day.

It is easy to layer this mascara for an even more voluminous look. I tend to use one layer during the day and two at night. I experience no clumping or flaking with either one or two layers.

The L'Oreal Paris Mega Volume Miss Baby Roll has a recommended retail price of $21.95.

Click HERE to check out the other shade of this mascara available for purchase from Priceline, namely a beautiful indigo.

L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fiber

This is a two step mascara. 

Step 1 is a black primer which volumises the lashes, thickening each lash to build volume.

Step 2 lengthens the lashes with an ultra black formula enriched with 20x more fibres than the Superstar Original Mascara, for extreme length.

L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fiber Step 1: Volumises Lashes

L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fiber Step 2: Lengthens Lashes

Using this mascara my lashes appeared fuller, lifted & longer. 

My lashes curled absolutely beautifully using this mascara.

The L'Oreal Paris False Lash X-Fibre has a recommended retail price of $28.95. 

L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation

The L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral foundation range has been reformulated to offer clean coverage that actively improves skin texture with 95% pure sea mineral extracts.

It now contains the addition of Kaolin & Zinc and claims to improve the skin's complexion in just 4 weeks.

This powder claims to reduce acne and blemishes, even out your skin tone, control your oil and soften your skin texture for a radiant glow.

As I haven't yet used this product for 4 weeks I can't comment on all these claims but it definitely controlled my oil.

This mineral foundation comes in five shades ranging from 1W Ivory to 6N Rose. It also comes in a new finishing powder.

I received the following three shades:
  • 2.R/2.C      Rose Vanilla
  • 3.N            Creme Beige 
  • 4.D/4.W     Golden Natural
L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation

I like the method of dispensing this powder. There's a well in the jar which is covered with netting and you swirl your brush in the well against the netting. This dispenses the perfect amount of powder and minimises the risk of accidental spills. 

I found this powder to be comfortable to wear all day and it lasted well. On it's own it offers lightweight coverage.

I prefer to wear this powder on top of the Glam Beige Foundation for more coverage.

The L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Foundation has a recommended retail price of $34.95.

  17. So is the mineral foundation (the last one) a powder? I have problems with sweating so don't like putting stuff on my face.

    I do wear lipstick though and prefer a matte. I'm actually attending a makeup session / party soon and looking forward to getting some new lipsticks! #teamlovinlife

    1. Yes the True Match Mineral Foundation is a powder.

      Enjoy your makeup session/party. I hope you find some gorgeous matte lipsticks through the session.

  18. I love the look of that velvet matte lip paint. I love a lip paint, but don't want it to be too glossy for work. This looks perfect.

    1. these sound perfect if you don't want gloss!
