L’Oreal Les Monos by Color Riche for Spring 2016 are a new, permanent eyeshadow collection available in 15 shade selections that promise a smooth, high pigmented formula.
I’ve been playing around with these this week and I thought I’d give you a brief glance at some of the shades I recently picked up.
Take a look!
L’Oreal Les Monos Eyeshadows have what L’Oreal calls a soft gel-to-powder technology and formula. Personally this isn’t new or innovative texture and formula but by drugstore standards it is. To me these sorta kinda feel like Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadows. You might recognize this formula as well from the UK. L’oreal Color Riche L’Ombre Pure Mono Eyeshadows launched in 2014 in Europe and this pretty much looks like our variation of that formulation.
They actually aren’t loaded up with mega pigment but they do have this soft creamy powdery consistency! The verdict is still out and I’m still busy testing so expect a review shortly but so far they seem interesting if nothing else. I thought they were a little crumbly but I did like the texture. But we shall see! I have to test more!
Each shade is $4.89 each at Harmons but I imagine once they hit Walgreens, CVS, etc…they’ll likely set you back anywhere from $5.99 to $6.49 each. Them just be the breaks when it comes to CVS/Walgreens pricing.
I wouldn’t say these are a nod to Japanese eyeshadows or at least not the great big nod that we got from the new Covergirl TruNaked Eyeshadow Palettes. Dare I say I think I liked that formula much better than L’Oreal Les Monos but needless to say I’m always, always terribly excited to see the evolution of drugstore makeup as it unfolds and the attempts it makes to keep in touch with the latest trends happening across the board from mid and high range brands.
Anyone try the L’Oreal Les Monos by Color Riche Eyeshadows yet?
