review: L'Oreal HiP Color Presso Gloss

L'Oreal is one of my favorite drugstore brands for obvious reasons: they make amazing products that are affordable. their new HiP Color Presso Glosses are another line of products i really like. i will admit, there are pros and cons with these, but knowing that there are two colors that can be customized-- even mixed and matched to create new pairings!-- made them more appealing.

first off, as you can see in the above pic, there are two holes that allow as much or as little product of each color to be applied. the formula itself goes on smooth and has a pleasant vanilla scent, isn't sticky, and as they were designed to do, blend together very well.

these come in 10 color combinations, and as i mentioned before, you can interchange the colors to create new combinations...

Swanky is on the left and Trendy on the right.

flipping the tops off of both, i removed the lighter shade from Swanky...

and paired it with the lighter shade from Trendy...

then paired the bright and mauve-y pinks together.

as you may have gathered, the pros to these glosses are many, but i wouldn't be a good beauty editor if i didn't share the cons: first the tops aren't as easy to open as i would like. i can do it, of course, but it takes a small amount of effort. the other con is the price. i do factor in the fact that there are two yummy glosses you're getting, but i still feel the brand could have priced Color Presso a bit better. aside from that, i am definitely a fan!

find L'Oreal HiP Color Presso Gloss in drugstores, mass retailers and online at drugstore.com
