L’Oreal Golden Grape Colour Riche Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

LOreal Golden Grape Colour Riche Lipstick

If you told me a few days ago I’d be busy purchasing a shade of lipstick entitled Golden Grape I’d have called you a liar. I’m not a fan of vampy lip colors and Golden Grape I dunno…the golden sounds appealing but the grape part not so much!

But indeed it ended up coming home with me after I saw it on a L’Oreal Parisian Display at Walgreens (although I don’t believe the shade is actually part of this collection).

Take a look!

E.L.F. Studio Eye Enhancing Eyeshadow Palette 1

E.L.F. Studio Eye Enhancing Eyeshadow Palettes
are a range six coordinating shades of eyeshadow to compliment your eye color. This isn’t a new idea at all considering Almay, Covergirl, and many other brands have released similiar products.

Personally, I’m all about wear what you want however, I guess it’s quite nice having contrasting shades that supposedly compliment your own eye color. Being the rebel that I am (ha!) I got the Blue Eyes 1 selection rather than either of the two Brown Eye Palettes. Shrug! What? I liked the shades in this the best, sue me!

Jump ahead for more.
