L’Oreal x Balmain – A Match Made In Beauty Heaven

Nothing makes a girl feel quite as posh as a handbag filled with gorgeous beauty treats. And while sometimes, these can require a little saving before one can splash her cash, this September, the one update to my Autumn / Winter makeup bag is both, surprisingly affordable but decadent at the same time.

I’m talking, of course, about the new limited edition range of L’Oreal Color Riche lipsticks created in collaboration with Balmain, one of the world’s edgiest fashion houses, and sold exclusively at Harvey Nichols stores in London, Manchester and Liverpool.

The lipsticks, which are gloriously matte but wonderfully creamy at the same time, come in twelve mild to wild shades (including totally out there navies, greens, greys and browns) and represent three tribes of femininity – Safari, Rock and Couture.

I absolutely love how the campaign sends the message of beauty in diversity and female empowerment with models of a vast array of ethnic backgrounds being chosen to wear the shades and represent their powerful message.

My three favourite shades are Domination – a bold, brick red which is my signature in the Autumn / Winter months, Fever – a fiery orange that reminds me of Autumn leaves and Confession – a sweet peachy pink perfect for the daytime. I believe those three are the most wearable on a daily basis, but at £12.99 a pop, there’s nothing to stop you from experimenting with all the sultry jewel tones the line has to offer, which would be perfect for a glam night out.

Which shade are you most likely to get? Share your answer with me in the comment box below or via social media – I’m @mascaraeverysat on Twitter and @mascaraeverysaturday on Instagram. See you at the next post! xx
