Haute Couture Lipsticks: L'Oreal X Balmain


Hi Friends, I was really lucky to be invited to the Australian launch of the L'Oreal X Balmain lipstick collection a few weeks back. This collection has been extremely successful overseas and is selling out as fast as they can stock them!

So here they are, all in glory. THE L'OREAL X BALMAIN LIPSTICKS!! (*me screaming with joy).


But first, a little about the backstory to this collection.

L'Oreal is the Official Sponsor for Paris Fashion Week and who else would they have chosen for this collaboration but the hottest fashion designer at the moment but Olivier Rousteing, the head designer for French Fashion House Balmain,

The fashion house of Balmain was founded by Pierre Balmain in 1946. Read more by clicking here.

这些口红是“L'oreal Paris | 巴黎欧莱雅”和法国时尚品牌“Balmain | 巴尔曼”之间的合作项目。 它们非常特别。 这些口红是限量版。 系列中有12支口红。包装看起来像大理石。

  • 第一批口红(蓝色包装)被称为“Rock | 摇滚系列”。 这些旨在将“Balmain”的独特设计转化为哑光口红。

  • 第二组口红(黑色包装)被称为“Couture | 时装系列”。 这个团队庆祝“巴尔曼”的时装起源。

  • 第三组口红(绿色包装)被称为“Safari | 苹果浏览器收藏” - “唤醒所有女性的激烈”。 我最喜欢这些。

这些口红耐用,不会让你的嘴唇感觉干燥。 如果你不喜欢太多颜色,你可以轻轻地拍在你的嘴唇上。 发布会非常豪华。 我非常喜欢。 您可以在下面看到照片。 我感到非常幸运。 感谢“欧莱雅”给我这些口红和邀请我参加派对。

Overall performance and Swatches

The lipsticks have that nice L'Oreal lipstick texture and also scent. They do not have much of a taste to them which is great.

They are extremely pigmented. I would recommend just applying one coat with a lip brush and setting it with a translucent powder.

As this is a collaboration with Balmain's head designer Olivier Rousteing (man who has made Balmain cool again), the shades are unusual and "high octane". Some are wearable for the day/office. The collection of 12 limited edition lipsticks is divided into 3 groups and reflect the history and current style of the House of Balmain

The Rock Collection (blue marble) are matte and "meant to transform the signature edge of Balmain into Matte Lipsticks.

The Couture Collection (black) are satin shades which "celebrate the couture origins of Balmain".

The Safari Collection (green marble) "awakens a fierceness in all women".


The ROCK COLLECTION

The COUTURE COLLECTION

From left to right: Confession; Liberation; Confidence; Domination.

This are satin-like shades. The nudes are wearable for day/office and the red too (you can dab it on your lips for a more sheer coverage.

The SAFARI COLLECTION

(my personal favourite group from this collection)

From left to right: Glamazon; Fever; Balmain Instinct; Urban Safari.

I REALLY LOVE "Balmain Instinct" , on me, it just complements my olive skin tone. It also is speckled with micro gold glitter.

These are what you might describe as "metallics"; but I think that these have much more, due to the micro gold glitter.

"Balmain Instinct" is Balmain's current signature colour.

How cool is the packaging?? That jade marble. Gasp!

Disclaimer: I was very sick with the flu when I did these photographs, Very sorry about that. So my lips were very dry to begin with. I also did not use a lip pencil (could not find one handy at the time I did these). These lipsticks look much better in real life :)

The Launch Event | 约会的照片。


The event was held on May 10th, 2018 at Bar Machiavelli. We were treated to the most delicious hors-d'œuvres and there were specially-created cocktails. Each guest left with a small gift bag containing one lipstick from each of the three groups. I had so much fun that night!

You can watch more of the event on my Instagram @teacupofmakeup saved under the Highlights "EVENTS".
