Collaborations are always exciting. They tend to bring out unique, often once-in-a-lifetime products that later become collector's items.
I am excited to say that I been able to try the new collection that is coming out from L'oreal and Fashion powerhouse Balmain. It only seems fitting that two French powerhouses would come together in this way.
I was able to test out three lip colors and it's hard to say which one is my favorite. The packaging in this collection really has a sophisticated, elegant, retro feel. That alone made me want to learn more about this collection. Each color tube has several colors, so this collection seems pretty much endless. There's a color for everyone! I chose a color from each tube collection. There are 12 colors right now.
It is important to note that the red color (in the black tube) is called Domination. Of the three in the photo here, it has the strongest payoff. Next to that is the green is named Balmain Instinct. The blue-tubed lipstick, appropriately named Freedom, is a bold purple color. For some reason, purple is one of my favorite lipcolors. While I like the color, I do find that I need to spend a little more time making sure this color is bold enough for my liking. A light hand with the purple can cause it to fade. It's still a great color and for the price point, it definitely works.
Overall, I would suggest that you check these out if you are lipstick lover. The collection is well put together and provides a great amount of color options for nude lips and bold colors for a more daring lip.
The price point at Ulta is about $14 per tube. The collection will first debut at online at www.ulta.com on Saturday, November 11, 2017 and then in stores on Saturday, January 27, 2018.
