L’Oreal Colour Riche L’Ombre Pure Mono Eyeshadows

I have been swatching these L’Oreal Colour Riche L’Ombre Pure Eyeshadows every time I go into Superdrug and although I have plenty of similar colours in my collection these were just too gorgeous not to have. I did limit myself to 2 colours, I think there are 20 in total and I could have bought so many more. The two I bought are typical of the colours I gravitate towards, I like to play it safe when it comes to eyeshadows and I try to buy colours that I will reach for often so that means I have a drawer full of very similar neutral colours (I’m an addict I will admit it).


So I bought 201 Cafe Saint Germain and 204 Golden Nude, both are gorgeous. They have a butter soft texture to them and feel almost wet to the touch. The colour payoff is beautiful and vivid, you can really build these up to an intense colour. These are essentially like a pressed pigment and they apply an intense wash of colour without having to pack on the shadow, there is no fall out with these and look beautiful worn alone all over the lid. Thats how I like to wear them, effortless to apply and they look stunning.

These both have a metallic like finish and are gel infused which means they feel very buttery and apply so smooth. You can apply these with a brush or just as easily with your finger and they blend out like a dream. If you have tried the L’Oreal Infallible shadows these are very similar to those, but these don’t have that crumbly texture these are so smooth.

The black and gold packaging looks luxurious and pretty it also feels sleek and they’re quite compact which is always good for travel. They feel quite sturdy and like they will last you well. I hate flimsy packaging that falls apart after a few uses.

Golden Nude is exactly that – a really lovely golden colour the finish is like velvet and is the perfect summer shade. I have been wearing this all over the lid with a touch of brown eyeliner. It stays vibrant all day long. This colour reminds me of Amber Lights from Mac.

Cafe Saint Germain – this is the perfect pinky taupe colour and some lights it looks rose gold its just beautiful. Again like the other colour it is pigmented and has that same shimmery finish – not glittery but these have an almost frost like finish to them. I can’t get enough of this colour and think its been my eyeshadow of choice for a few weeks.

These L’Oreal Colour Riche L’Ombre Pure Eyeshadows come in a range of finishes and there is something for everyone Matte, Nude, Smoky, Lumiere and Chameleon. If you haven’t already you need to swatch these in store, you won’t be disappointed. Let me know if you have bought any of these & if so what colours you love.

    These shades look absolutely beautiful! Do they have more Matte shades in the line as well? I love the shimmery shades, but I prefer to use for matte shadows on an everyday basis!
