Now normally I wouldn’t be posting about something right after I get it. Unless it’s a new release and I want to show you swatches and up close pictures. The L’Oréal Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High-Intensity Palette, kind of falls into that category. And I will not be calling it it’s full name throughout this blogpost, it’s too bloody long 🙂

I wanted to get a post up about it quickly because well they are new. But, they are also on special in Boots at the moment. A few people were intrigued when I showed this one I got on social media. So, I thought I would rustle together a quick post showing you it in action.

There are two shade ranges in the L’Oréal Infallible Blush Paint Palettes to choose from.

A more orange, peachy toned one called ‘Amber’, that looked a little dark for me.

I picked up the ‘Pinks’ one, just because I thought it would suit my complexion more.

Obviously this can’t be a full on review, I haven’t used the product enough. But I can give you a first impression and thoughts. Off the bat, the powders, yes they are powders, the name is a little misleading. They smell like sweets. If sweet scents isn’t your thing, this could be a deal breaker. You get 5 powdered blushes within the palette, totaling up to ten grams of product.

The pans are approximately a third bigger than a standard single Mac eyeshadow. Not the easiest to get a brush into, but it is doable.

Here they are swatched on my arm from left to right:

On first swatch and application, I think the blushes are really nice. They feel soft, have good colour pay off and blend nicely into the skin too. The lighter colours need a bit mroe building then the two intense shades. I am OK with that, it means I am in control of the amount of colour I apply. And they do build up nicely. I also think I personally will get use out of all five shades in the ‘Pinks’ palette. That’s an added bonus as sometimes there is one of two that just wouldn’t float my boat. Now as you can see not all the shades are pink, there is a couple more of a peachy tone, but we won’t split hairs 🙂

At the moment the L’Oréal Infallible Blush Paint palette is available from Boots in store and online here for €10.99 and L’Oréal are on 3 for 2. That’s why I wanted to get this post up now, as this palette normally retails for €16.99. So, if you like what you see, get shopping 🙂

I was in looking for new releases in Boots recently and these caught my eye. They are the Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints.

Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints

The packaging reminded me of the lip paints Sleek had out a few years ago which I loved. Or like the Too Faced Melted lipsticks which I never tried but I know people had mixed feelings about them. Again, like the L’Orèal True Match Highlight which I spoke about last week here. The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are something I can’t get much information about online. The States are calling them Color Jolts and have had them for a while now. If you do want to see some extra info or swatches. But, I thought I would throw my Irish two cents in, just in case too 🙂

We have five shades to choose from in the range. I picked up two of them to try because they were on buy one get on half off.

They have an angled sponge tipped applicator and the product comes out of the middle. Feels nice to apply with, but it will get a bit messy after a few uses.

I went with 110 ‘Never Bare’ which is a nude pale pink colour. They also have a brown nude in the collection.

This one is 120 ‘Fight Me Fuchsia’. I chose this because for some reason this type of hot pink always draws me in. I don’t know why 🙂

Here they are swatched side by side on my arm to give you an idea of the difference and the opaqueness of the colour.

The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are to me a creamy pigmented gloss. They apply nicely and don’t feel sticky or uncomfortable on the lips. They also smell like watermelon which I quite like. But, if you are not into strong scents, that could be a deal breaker for you. As they are a gloss they do move. But, the pigment does stain, so when the gloss fades, you do have some residual colour left over.

The Maybelline Color Drama Intense Lip Paints are in Boots stores at the moment but haven’t popped up on the Irish website just yet. They are priced at €7.49. You can check out the other selection of colours on the UK website here though.

What do you think?
