L'oreal: Love Liberté

AD - Products were gifted <3

Better late than never. Valentine’s day is now in the past and yet I am here talking about Valentine’s day collection from L’oreal Paris. The thing is, Valentine’s day makeup collections are usually wearable and relevant all year long - kisses and love hearts are safe even in the middle of August unlike Christmas symbols such as Santa. 

I must admit I usually do not celebrate Valentine’s day as mine and my partner's anniversary is exactly one week prior so we usually have a small celebration then and just ignore Valentine’s. That does not mean I do not enjoy Valentine’s day collection fun (and that applies to make-up and the chocolate lol). There are loads of Valentine's gift sets but this time I decided to build my own. Firstly, I really wanted to try this collections and secondly, the Valentine's gift box in pink colour with red hearts all over it is just too pretty to ignore. 

Anyways this post was scheduled to be posted prior to Valentine’s day but something has happened just a week before. My boyfriend proposed and I said yes. I was overwhelmed with excitement to do anything but talk about the wedding so here we are talking about Valentine's makeup after Valentine's day. This collection is, however, so beautiful that you need it in your permanent collection for all year long. 

Love Liberté Lipsticks

This year L’oreal came up with probably the most beautiful design they ever produced. The packaging is gorgeous but the design of the lipstick steals the show. The hearts all over turn the an ordinary lipstick into a peace of art. 

The lipsticks come in three shades - nude (235 Nude), pink (112 Paris Paris) and red (125 Maison Marais). All thee of them are creamy and hydrating. The red and pink ones are well pigmented. The nude one offers a lovely colour, however, the pigment belongs to the sheer side as most nude lipsticks from L'oreal do. I don't think L'oreal has a good nude lipstick formula as this is not the first nude shade from this brand I am not too impressed with. However, the pink and the red shades are amazing. They are so rich and they last long (for a classic lipstick) as they leave a stain on the lips that does not move. 

The nude shade aside (that can be the lipstick for a display lol), I am pleasantly surprised. I am usually not the biggest fan of shiny creamy lipsticks and I am always worried, cream lipstick will get smudged. I am not going to lie, there is always a possibility of such an occurance with any creamy lipstick but in this case, you do not have to worry that the lippies will travel all over your face deliberately. 

The price is right, you could not ask for prettier packaging and the colours are beautiful.

Lash Paradise Love Liberté

This is not the first time I am talking about the iconic Lash Paradise mascara. It's one of my drugstore ultimate favourites and I keep recommending it together with Sky High from Maybelline. The mascara gives my lashes length and volume of fake lashes without looking fake if that makes sence. The bristles are gentle and the mascara does not irritate my eyes.
