Along with the recent release of the L’Oreal HIP Studio Secrets Professional Crystal Shadow Duos I recently reviewed, a brand new collection of liners were introduced.
Jump ahead to hear about them!
First off these are a whooping $9.99 each….9..9..9…as in 10 bucks. Dude, whoa. Honestly, that’s a bit much for a drugstore eyeliner, ouchie. No worries, worthy of your buckage, promise.
From what I’ve seen three colors of L’Oreal HIP Studio Secrets Professional Color Crystal Eyeliner have been released, which stinks as they are awesome. Here’s the deal I only hauled one like an idiot because at first glance they reminded me a bit too much of L’Oreal HIP Color Chrome Eyeliners. They had three shades, two of which looked similar to shades from the chrome releases, one was a silver and one a purple. Honestly, having the chrome version already I didn’t think I needed the silver nor the purple. Wrong, I need them.
Here’s the deal.
Where as the Chrome sport a metallic, liquid metal finish, these sport a sequin finish. Doesn’t really sound all that different in my humblest but one swatch and I was in lust. The shade I got was Bronze Shimmer and it’s a lovely brown but the kicker is the slightly golden sparkle that comes out in the shade. It really does have a sparkly, sequin finish. So indeed they are quite different from the chrome liners. I may have to haul butt back and get the purple and silver.
Comparable in formula to Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliners, if not better, they are creamy, dreamy, and beautifully easy to use and blend out if you so desire. The formula simply melts across the lash line and leaves behind a smooth, even finish with plenty of pigment and just a touch of shimmer.
If you hauled the chromes and loved ’em, I highly suggest snagging the new L’Oreal HIP Studio Secrets Professional Color Crystal Eyeliner, you won’t wanna miss ’em.
My only rant? Why three shades? Why not match up shades to go along with the Crystal Shadow Duos?
Aside from that, loves ’em! Muse Approval for purchase.
Have you hauled any?
