L’Oreal Gold Mirage Shimmering Eyeshadow and Lipgloss for Summer 2020

L’Oreal Gold Mirage Shimmering Eyeshadow and Gold Mirage Crushed Quartz Lipgloss is available today exclusively for Platinum Members at ulta.com. These kind of remind of that exclusive Walmart Collection from last year and the fact that the eyeshadows appear to have a slurry formula they also remind me of the L’Oreal x Camila Cabello Havana Collection! I’m still a little salty I missed hauling those eyeshadows! I got like one shade and loved it but never got my hands on the others!

I will say I’m always happy when L’Oreal embraced a slurry formula. I tend to enjoy this formula. It’s soft, creamy, and has a hybrid-like texture that’s powder but creamy as well much like Japanese eyeshadows.

Sadly, the shade range of the L’Oreal Gold Mirage Shimmering Eyeshadow is a bit lacking as they went with shades I wouldn’t necessarily haul as they lean on the lighter gold and bronze side of the fence. I like something a bit deeper as shades like this tend to drown me out a little bit. The pink does look lovely! There are four shades total.

Along with the eyeshadows there’s a new Gold Mirage Crushed Quartz Lip Gloss in four shades. The molten quartz inspired gloss give lips a sheer shimmering finish for a nude bronzed look!

The L’Oreal Gold Mirage Collection is exclusive to Ulta and includes these lipglosses and eyeshadows along with a Face & Body Luminizer, and a Bronzing Palette that’s not yet available.

Are you loving any of these glosses or eyeshadows?

They went with a more nude bronze look here that might appear a bit pastel on tanned skin if that makes sense. That could be why I’m not into it. I tend to go for more brassy golds versus the very light one in this collection. These shades aren’t quite what I’d reach for when it comes to a bronze-y look! I’d likely love the formula of the eyeshadows but the shades I’m not particularly in love with.

How about you?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Would totally buy the Pink quartz shadow but I’m not Platinum. Hopefully they will release to rest of us soon.

    I don’t like buying cosmetics online if I don’t know what the color and texture (and ingredients for eye shadows) look like. The Ulta stores around me have put TAPE over all their testers (so all the tester lipsticks are in the rack with the labels facing up so you can’t even see the colors IRL). Ulta has become the most unsatisfying place to shop for me for something new. I would like to get some new stuff but buying now is sight-unseen since they did this wacko thing with all their testers. They even taped the eye shadow palettes shut so you can’t open them to see the actual colors. THEN WHY HAVE TESTERS OUT AT ALL? There’s absolutely no point to testers if you can’t even SEE them.

    Way to phone it in L’Oreal! I long for the days of their killer summer LE collections…This is extremely underwhelming, imo…
