Soft Smokey Eyes With #MattevsGloss Looks Ft. L’Oreal Paris #YouCannes 2015
As you might know it already, L’Oreal Paris recently launched their new Cannes Collection for 2015 with some amazing Gloss & Matte lipsticks and Gel Eyeliners. I was also a part of their launch event in #TeamMarvellousMatte where I got an opportunity to meet the lovely Kartina Kaif and Sonam Kapoor. You can read more about the event here. I was sent a couple of products from the new collection and I thought of creating a look for you guys.
Initially, I wanted to create two different looks using the Matte and the Gloss collection but I changed my mind later. Instead, I decided to show you guys the difference by just changing the lip color texture from Matte to Gloss with the same makeup look.
Since I was playing with light colors, I decided to go for a subtle everyday smokey eyes look with just a hint of blush. I used the new L’Oreal Paris 36 Hours Gel Intenza Eye Liner in Diamond black and smudge it to create that soft smokey eyes look. The Gel Intenza liner slides on effortlessly and once settled, it doesn’t smudge or transfer which makes it perfect for such looks. It also has very fine shimmer particles that adds a hint of glamour to the overall eye makeup look.
For the Matte Look, I opted for the beautiful L’Oreal Paris Moist Matte Limited Edition Swarovski Studded Lipstick in Cherry Crush. It is a soft, pastel pink lip color that goes amazingly well with the smokey eyes. Apart from the glamorous swarovski studded packaging, the lipstick is intensely pigmented and has a velvety texture which lasts for good 5 hours.
For the Gloss Look, I decided to stick with the same color family of pink and opted for the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in Rose Symphony. I have been a fan of L’Oreal Paris Liquid Lipstick and this doesn’t disappoint me either. Rose Symphony is a bit brighter that Cherry Crush and the gloss finish instantly brightens up the entire look. It is a perfect everyday wear with medium coverage and high hydration. The non-sticky formula and the amazing texture makes it a winner for me.
I hope you liked the looks I have created. Are you Team Matte or Gloss? Also, do let me know your favorite look in the comments below. 🙂
