L’Oreal HiP FOTD with Midnight Blue Cream Liner

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I was feeling a little blue this morning (literally) so I decided to do a fun blue and gold FOTD.

I didn’t do a full on blue eye since I tend to get a little messy if I don’t have enough time to spend on my makeup.  So I reached for my shu uemura Secret Luscious Rose palette and opted for an olive green all over my lid, then applied a little bit of the navy blue in the outer corners and into my crease.

Then for the Pièce de Résistance of my look, a bold electric blue liner using L’Oreal HiP Color Truth Cream Liner.  I got these at the drugstore during a BOGO event – the best times to shop for makeup!

I love my Bobbi Brown Gel Liners, but I wanted to give these a try so that I could add more color to my repertoire without having to spend what I would have at the counter.  These L’Oreal HiP shades are also more vibrant than what Bobbi Brown currently offers.

Colors

I picked up Eggplant, a deep metallic purple, and Midnight Blue, a vibrant electric blue that’s thankfully not to “midnight”.  You can actually see the blue show up nicely.

Texture

The formula on Color Truth Cream Liners are not as dense as the Bobbi Brown Gel Liner and are much more creamy as the name suggests.  It took a few minutes for me to get used to the texture and find a steady hand.  If you’re not careful you might not get a smooth line and smudge.  But once you get through that, it dries up and won’t budge all day long.

Overall, I love the vibrant colors – would you expect anything less from the HiP line?  But the application takes a little bit of getting used to.

What do you think?  Have you tried these out yet?  Let’s Dish!!
