I don't know if these products are being discontinued or not, but for such a cheap price I couldn't pass them up!
The first things I purchased were the L'Oreal HIP pigments. I already had two in Progressive and Striving and love them. For only 3 dollars each, I though why not!
I got Exciting (102), Rebel (314), Valiant (534), Unashamed (544), Intrepid (914), Restless (918), and Visionary (924) in order from left to right.
I've grabbed every one that they had except for a
baby pink color, just because it's not very flattering on me.
Each pigment jar has 1.5g of product in it and each comes with a sifter on top which I think makes getting the perfect amount of product a lot easier than MAC pigments. Below I swatched all of the colors, in the opposite order :-(. One the far left the pigment is over a black cream base, in the middle it is over UDPP, and on the far right it is with no base.
Each pigment comes with a brush as pictured which actually work really great with pigments.
Next I got 4 blushes from L'Oreal, the Feel Naturale Light Softening Powder Blushes in Rustica, Mauvelous, Mocha Rose, and Au Naturel. They were each about $3.50 so a great deal!
Each blush is highly pigmented and I know they will last me forever. The packaging is quite bulky since each compact has a huge mirror on the upper portion of the compact. I may eventua
lly depot these once I get a free form palette.
Each blush is also matte except for the third once in, Mocha Rose, which has finely milled golden shimmer. They are all quite creamy and none feel powdery at all.
The blushes swatch quite easily and all show up vividly on my tanner skin tone. I think that Au Naturel will make a nice subtle contour shade as well. These are all very buildable and you get 7.2g of product in each compact.
Finally I picked up a "gift bag" of sorts. I was in need of hair ties so I had already grabbed a simple packet for 2.99 but then I saw this which included hair ties for the same price! They had multiple versions as well, but this one in particular suited my needs best. I found them in the shampoo and conditioner isle.
The only disappointment was that the hair ties had metal connecters which tend to break hair, but otherwise this is a fantastic deal!
