Hey guys! Since lippies are one of my favorite makeup products, I couldn’t wait for this collab! First, when else would I ever own anything from Balmain lol. (One day but for now these will do lol). Second, I had to do a Balmain X L’Oreal Lipstick Collaboration Review for you guys! If you guys did not already know, Balmain the luxury clothing brand and L’oreal the makeup powerhouse collaborated on a lipstick collection. I was able to get my hands of 6 of the 12 shades they were able to create. Unfortunately the shade I really did want, Fever, was not available when I made my pre-order purchase! Weird right? Honestly, I do not know if the color was ever released.
Let’s get to the nitty gritty lol! Because a designer brand and drug tore makeup company were collaborating, I knew the price point would be affordable. These retail for $14 each. So are these lippies worth it? I would say yes! Not every one I purchased is a must have, but the ones I love are amazing! First things first, the colors I have are Legend, Power, Confidence, Confession, Domination, and Balmain Instinct. My favorite color has to be Domination and Power! These lippies are very creamy and pigmented. When applying them, my lips were not dry at all.No tugging at all. Another plus for me is the smell. For some reason, I love it lol!
Surprisingly, the colors I thought I would love, I do not. Balmain Instinct and Confidence have to be my least favorite. These two shades has tiny pieces gold glittery which I think impacts the formula affecting the pigmentation. All the other shades apply perfectly and with ease.
In conclusion, I am here for this Balmain X L’Oreal collab! The colors were unique and not like any other colors I have in my lippie collection. Both Domination and Power will be in heavy rotation this fall and winter!
