L'Oreal Eyeshadow Review

Hello My Lovelies,

I've had this gorgeous L'Oreal eyeshadow for over a month now and it's a colour I keep using most days, so I knew it was a shade that I had to share with you all.

This is the first ever L'oreal eyeshadow that I have ever bought and tried before- I've only ever had mascara from L'oreal so when I was in Boots and I had swatched it I knew I had to give it a go!

The colour name is Opalescent (number 600) and comes from the Color Riche range, they have a couple of other colours in the collection that are all darker but this one looked my kind of tone- especially as I don't think deep colours look too great on my eyes.
This eyeshadow works best using a finger to apply, on a brush you just don't get the full effect of the shimmer and the pigmentation can be a bit wishy washy. Also using a finger means that the eyeshadow doesn't crumble which happens when I used a brush.
The longevity of this eyeshadow is great too and can last at least 5 to 6 hours which for a drugstore isn't too shabby.

The L'Oreal eyeshadow retails for £4.99 and is a light but beautiful colour & definatley a range that I will be checking out again next time I'm in Boots.

Do you own any of these eye shadows, let me know in the comments!

Till next time,
