L’Oreal La Palette Lip are now available in two new shades of La Plum and La Pink. The original lip palettes launched earlier this year for Spring 2016 and honestly, I thought they were a one off. None the less I hauled both and actually really, really liked them. I’m not a fond lip palette girl as I find them messy but both were quite nice!
So sure, I’m excited about the launch of two new ones! The original palettes were $11.99 each at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and included five shades each. One was a nude selection and the other was a plum selection. As with many drugstore items lately, L’Oreal does raise the price alarmingly on these new version at $16.99 for eight shades. They are currently offered as Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off at Ulta.com but I have to admit I still winced at the price tag. Revlon recently priced their Eyes, Lips, + Cheek Palette at $17.99 each which I felt was a bit absurd. Seems like you really have to aim for sales and clip coupons to get a good deal at the drugstore lately! Maybelline’s Lip Palette which launched last year for $11.99 that turned out to be limited edition was a deal in comparison as it too, contained eight shades but was $11.99. It just boggles my mind a little bit how drugstore prices continue to rise.
But I’ll digress from my ranting and give you a few more deets on these palettes. Both palettes contains mix and match shades in three finishes that include creams, mattes, and highlighting/sheerer shades and each follows a pink or plum color scheme with the plum looking like it contains the more deeper shades!
I’m not sure I’m yet willing to dish out near $20 on a lip palette from L’Oreal but having tried the original ones maybe they can convince me.
What do you think of the new La Palette Lip shades?
