L’oreal Surprise Pack #2

As I mentioned in my previous post about a L’oreal box, I wasn’t completely satisfied with the contents: 3 lip products and one eye shadow. I sent a mail to the company, and they promised to send me some other products. When they arrived, there were, again, 4 products in the box! How great is that service? 😀

Without any further ado, here’s the lovely box:

L'oreal_test_2_01

Included in this box were:

  • Two HIP pigments, Showy (blues, 224) and Mischief (908)
  • Telescopic Explosion mascara in Blackest Black, waterproof (985, the one with the weird brush)
  • True Match Naturale Mineral-Enriched mascara, also in Blackest black (805)

I already had one of the HIP eyeshadow duos (Sassy), and I like it a lot! The colours blend well and are quite pigmented and buildable. The wear time is quite long, but on my oily lids, creasing is unavoidable.

These duos contain a matte and a shimmery shade, while the other (in the previous box) contained two metallicy shades. These also have a little sponge applicator and a mirror in a ‘secret’ compartment. Both shades were smooth to the touch and didn’t have much fallout, but it was very noticeable that the shimmery shades were more pigmented than the matte shades

The first swatch shows the colours after I build them up a bit, the second shows a one-finger-swipe-swatch. After I tried the shadows on my eyes and used a brush, the dark shades were much more intense (hello raccoon eyes :P) and looked great.

Now, onto the mascaras! I didn’t take proper pics of the second mascara, but it was nothing special. At least not compared to the Telescopic Explosion! I’ve never seen a brush like that..

The little brush head/ball is designed to precisely extend and separate the lashes, and to get into the corner of the eye and catch all lashes! I also like how the mascara tube comes separate from the brush, so everyone gets to appreciate the brush in all its glory 😀

Now, I’ve never made comparison pics before of my lashes, but I tried my best.. Left is without, right is with this mascara:

And from the side

I have quite black and long lashes myself, but this mascara gives a beautiful curl and adds some length. It promises a fanned-out effect on your lashes, and it delivers. No clumping, no lashes glued together. I love it!

The second mascara (I forgot to take separate pics.. oops) is the Bare Naturale Mineral-Enriched (quite a mouthful!), and apparently it’s a formula which contains aloe, vitamin E and jojoba oil. I don’t particularly care about the formula, so let’s move on to the lash shots! I do apologise in advance for my red eye. I got a little bit too excited with the cleanup and probably poked my eye or something.

The sun hide behind the clouds for the mascara shots, that’s why my pupils are dilated like mad!

I’m not very impressed by this mascara. It doesn’t do much for me, except from smudging under my eye, although I kind of have myself to blame for that because I’m super clumsy and pretty much smeared mascara all over my under eye area..

 

So, this concludes this review. I love how they sent me more products, even though I didn’t exactly ask for it! Big thumbs up for them 🙂 I was really impressed by the Telescopic Explosion mascara, and I can never have enough eye shadow!
