Swatches from the previous HAUL post and a quick EOTD

Hi guys

I have swatches from my haul in the previous post.

I got the L'oreal lipsticks for a total bargain and I love both the shades. L'oreal Colour Riche in Pink Lady is a muted pink shade, perfect for day wear and I like to top this up with the L'oreal Lip Gloss in Always Pink. L'oreal Color Riche in After Glow, to me is a perfect MLBB shade. This is a very pretty peachy brown shade and I see myself getting good use of it. I am not sure if these shades are now sold or not in the regular Colour Riche range, as I got these from DFO (as mentioned in my previous post). I got Revlon Color Burst in Peony and Orchid.

I was always a pink girl and was never into peaches, but now I have this sudden fancy over everything peach and hence the need to buy Revlon Peony (gloss) and BYS Coral (blush) is totally justified. Both of them are pretty peachy, while Revlon Peony is a sheer peach with subtle golden shimmer, BYS Coral is a super pigmented peach blush though I dislike the sweet smell it has. Revlon Orchid is a pinky lilac shade. So now the swatches, enjoy !!

L'oreal Infallible Forever Pink, Flashback Silver & Hourglass Beige (L to R)

BYS Coral Blush swipe & blended in (L to R)

Quick EOTD using Flashback Silver on my lids and Hourgalss Beige as a highlight

The EOTD was actually a very quick one, without primer, mascara and concealer or you can say I just slathered the color on to my lids ha ha :) I was rushing for a dinner date .. and these pics are around 3 hours after applying the makeup. This was applied with fingers. The Lovely Lilit from Makeup and Macroons had done a detailed post on these along with a fab EOTD have a look here .

Have you guys tried L'oreal Colour Riche or Revlon Corlor Burst ? What do you think of them ? Have you bought any of the L'oreal Infallible eyeshadows ? Which are your favorite colors ?
