Finally: The L'Oreal H.I.P. Eye Shadow Duos

Hi all,

I'm drop-dead exhausted and have to get up in less than four hours, so unfortunately I'm not going to take the time to adequately review these right now. However, I told a few of you I was going to post these days ago, so I didn't want to hold off on posting the pictures any longer now that they've been at least cropped and labeled. I will update this entry with a review when I have a little more time and energy (hopefully tomorrow, but I don't want to make any promises...). In the meantime, if you see any shades that strike you as potential dupes, please leave a comment with your request (i.e., "the right side of Showy 224 looks like MAC Parrot - could you post a comparison swatch of these, please?" - this is one I'm planning to do, as I've heard they're similar...) and I will accommodate you to the best of my ability! Thanks for your patience:

  4. Hmmm not seeing gilded either. Now I have more to get. In your opinion which are the must haves and avoids?

  5. Oh, wow. Ariana and weener-d, you are correct, and I am embarrassed.

    None of the metallics are on there! I just looked on the L'Oreal website and apparently there are several more I simply don't have. I thought I had them all because I got all 25 they had at Rite Aid, and that was the biggest stock I'd ever seen, so I just assumed they carried them all... I'm a doofus.

    With that said, I think I've seen some, if not all, of those metallic ones at Walgreens. I will try to pick them up one day soon and add to the list! So sorry about that.

    weener-d, I will update this entry very soon to answer your question and more :)

    Thanks, everyone!

  7. Awesome swatches! I have always wondered about these e/s and how pigmented they really are. They look great and I'm so thankful they have a bunch of neutrals too!

  12. Where were you when I was at the drugstore? :) This is great. I want to add a few more of these duos to my complexion but I'm always spooked because I can't try before I buy. Now I feel like I've tried them and I've made my list. Thanks!
