The L'Oreal Paris x Karl Lagerfeld Collection

The following products have been kindly gifted.

I always get excited when L'Oréal release a new collaboration, but even more so when I discovered it was with one of the biggest designers of our time - Karl Lagerfeld. The entire collection is absolutely stunning from the packaging (which is the epitome of Karl himself), to the luxe formulas that I know and love about L'Oréal. 

This Parisian rock-chic collection features two ultra pigmented liquid eyeliners in 'Blue Black' (matte) and 'Rose Silver' (metallic), volumising mascara, a bold yet sophisticated eyeshadow palette and my personal favourites, their dreamy lipsticks and highlighter compact.
Three words: glamorous, rock, chic. That is essentially how I would describe this bold palette and the selection of shades allows for endless, versatile looks. You get a good mix of matte and shimmers along with a couple wearable colours for the daytime. A combination of the first two shades (peachy-pink and matte tan) is your eye look practically sorted, and the coppery-rust in the center is a blue-eyed best friend in the way it makes them pop. For a bold nighttime look, the sparkly indigo shade will certainly make you standout from the crowd, finishing it off with a swipe of Kultured (nude-pink) on the lips.

There are a total of six timeless lipsticks in the collection including a deep maroon and rich pink shades to flatter every skin tone. Kontemporary is your quintessential nude-brown that will complement any makeup look and Provokative is your staple red-orange perfect for date night. If you're familiar with L'Oréal's Colour Riche Lipsticks then you know how richly pigmented, creamy and hydrating the formula is (it's all thanks to the vitamin e and argan oil). I love the lustrous satin finish and the way the shades embody that rock-chic look.

It was love at first sight and let me tell you, it is just as gorgeous on the skin as it is in the pan! The outer shade is a very pretty champagne (right up my alley) while the center shade gives your complexion a golden glow, so I like that this caters to multiple different skin tones. The powders themselves are incredibly smooth it texture and melt into the skin once applied for a luminous glow that doesn't look glittery or chunky whatsoever.

Each product is of high quality (especially the eyeshadows - wow!), which I expected nothing less from L'Oréal. A very sophisticated and well-thought-out collection from the packaging all the way down to the little details that really make this a special collaboration. We all have a touch of Karl.

Are you feeling the feminine rock-chic vibe of this collection?
