L’Oreal Crushed Foils Metallic Lipstick ($9.97) is a new metallic lipstick that launched with the L’Oreal Crushed Foil Collection available exclusively at Walmart. I’m not a terribly big fan of metallic anything as I find the finish is too frosty on me but I have to admit to falling in love with a few of the shades in this collection so I am guilty of indulging but overindulging as I only grabbed one shade.
L’Oreal Crushed Foils Metallic Lipstick (0.15 oz) arrive in rather frustrating packaging that feature a zip lock seal-like cap and a twist bottom. The shape and size will prove irritating if you like your lipsticks to be all one informed style/size. I’m actually a little surprised these are $10 each as I expected them to be a little cheaper at Walmart!
Don’t quote me but I believe L’Oreal offers these in three shades and I purchased the shade Copper. Cooper is pretty much your standard metallic orange-y copper shade with silver shimmer in the mix. It’s a really gorgeous shade but I’m not so keen on how it looks on me. I just can’t pull off metallics unfortunately! This formula sinks into my natural lip lines and gives me that dry look.
I thought the texture was nice with a slightly slick-feel that was thin and glided easily onto my drier lips without any flavor or fragrance. I get a four hour wear but as the color fades it leaves behind a bit of weird frostiness that has to be wiped away. The color didn’t migrate or feather but as I mentioned above it does settle into my natural lip lines right after application.
All in all, L’Oreal Crushed Foils Metallic Lipstick wasn’t really for me. The formula seems nice enough but I don’t really like how it looks on my lips! I can doctor it up with clear gloss and that helps but that takes away a little from the highly reflective metallic finish.
