L’Oréal Paradise Enchanted Collection - Review & Swatches

This long-weekend we are celebrating a civic holiday here in Canada which means we get an extra day to relax and enjoy the warm weather. Another way to embrace the tropical vibe of the season is with pretty makeup and L’Oreal’s Enchanted Paradise Collection is perfect for creating soft, fairy-tale looks. The formula is infused with delectable fruit fragrance that smells like peach bellini and the bold liner amps-up the neutral shadows to accentuate your eyes.

The Paradise Enchanted Eye Shadow Palette ($22.99) looks subtle and unassuming but the travel-friendly size, flattering hues and velvety texture makes this little compact a makeup bag essential. The creamy mattes and gorgeous metallic shimmers blend effortlessly and create beautiful contrast with no creasing or fading. A few of the neutrals are a bit boring but there is enough variety to take your look from day-to-night with excellent pigmentation.

The blush matches the eye shadow and illuminates the face. Fantastical ($18.99) is a soft peach that looks great on all skin tones. The pigmentation is buildable so you can create a light flush or intensify the color with a few layers. I wish the texture was rich and buttery but the powder applies consistently without accentuating lines on the skin.

On my complexion Bashful ($18.99) looks more like a highlighter with a hint of radiant peach. I dust it over the coral blush to create a silky sheen.

The Liquid Eyeliner ($12.99) is available in black and rose gold with a long-wear waterproof formula that never lets you down (even on humid days). Say goodbye to raccoon eyes and hello to the perfect cat eye. The jet black lacquer dries evenly and stays put without running or smudging so you can draw any size line with ease. I love the glossy finish and the long, flexible applicator conforms to curves without skipping or dragging.

The Lash Paradise Primer ($11.99) is infused with rose oil to condition delicate hair and enhance mascara wear. Use it to help bind the pigment to your lashes for more length and thickness.

The Voluminous Lash Mascara ($11.99) has more than 200 bristles to catch every hair for dramatic extension. The smooth glide formula is designed to provide silky volume in one coat but I usually apply a few layers for a falsies effect. The deep pigment elongates and saturates my lashes without clumping, dryness or flaking and it lasts as long as my day does.

L’Oreal is available at drugstores nationwide
