Top 6 L'Oreal Cosmetics Favourites

So, I've started a series on my blog documenting my favourites from a range of popular drugstore brands. I started with Rimmel (READ HERE), and today I have L'Oreal. I've just focused on cosmetics here, but if you want some skincare picks please let me know.

So, lets get on with the top 6: 

loreal favourites

1) Glam Shine Lipgloss 
The Glam Shine Lipgloss are some of my favourite ever. They have a really good formula, and the applicator  is great. The formula is not sticky at all, the perfect amount of glossy and it sits nicely on the lips (especially if they are dry).
I love the shade Rosewood Blush but the formula is great so if you want something other than a nude you can find something for you.  You can see it swatched here in my Lipgloss collection if you want to see the shade.

Apparently Cheryl Cole is a huge fan of these glosses, and you can read about her favourite shade here

2) GlamShine Stain Splash
The GlamShine
Stain Splashes
are one of the new crazes in makeup. The product lasts a long time on the lips, and is accompanied by a nice glossy finish.  They are very similar to the YSL Glossy Stains so if you want to try those, maybe pick there up here first to see if you like the texture and idea of a glossy stain. They last a long time, like they are meant to, don't dry out your lips to much and have a nice scent. The forumla is buildable, so you can get a sheerer or more bold finish. You can see the shade Eve featured here, but please ignore the review. I take back everything about it because it was user error that made me dislike the gloss stain, not the product itself.  

3) Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer 
The Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer  is a gorgeous offering from L'oreal. The primer isn't to silicone-y like most primers, but it does help a little with lasting power. It gives the skin a metallic quality when alone, but with a foundation or bb cream over the top it just gives the skin a gorgeous luminous quality. It is a little more on the expensive side for a drugstore primer, but it can be used as a primer, mixed in with foundation or as a highlight over foundation so you have a few products in one here, so the £9.99 is worth it. You can pick it up at Boots and Superdrug if you want to give it a go.  I featured this in my top 3 highlighters post here, if you want to give that a read. I goes into a little more detail about why I love it, so it might be worth a browse if you are thinking of picking this up.  
4) Mega  Volume Miss Manga Mascara 
The Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara  is my favourite mascara at the moment. I love the colour, I love the lasting power and I love the wand. The wand is probably the most unique thing about the mascara. It's a nice cone like brush that enables you to get all your lashes and it's really flexible. The colour is super black and it lasts all day on my lashes without flaking or smudging. It's only £8.99, which is on the cheaper side for L'Oeal Mascara and for me it's  the best one they do. You can also get other colours besides black which I really want to try. I think they have a turquoise and a purple, which are also only £8.99.  

5) Colour Infalliable 24 Hour Eyeshadow 
The Colour Infalliable 24 Hour Eyeshadow are a unique type of eyeshadow for the drugstore. They have the pigment and texture on the eye as a loose pigment but they have the convenience of a pressed shadow. They can be used wet and dry, they stay place in all day and they don't crease. They are insanely pigmented and only £6.99, but are worth so much more. You can see the shades they have here in the UK here if you fancy, but I really want to get my hands on some US shades because they look beautiful. 
I have a review of the shade Endless Chocolat if you fancy giving it a read here.  

6) Colour Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick
The Colour Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick are quite a new releases from L'oreal and everyone seems to be having a little rave about them. They are like a balm, gloss and lipstick all wrapped into one little tube. They are pigmented mixed with oils I believe making them feel lovely on the lips. The name are also really cute, and all have something to do with music. It They are £8.99 each, and you can see all the shades and pick them up here if you fancy.  

Let me know your favourite L'Oreal products in the comments! I really want to try more from the range, and I think True Match foundation might be next on my list.
