L'Oréal Paris® The One Sweep™ Eye Shadow and Double Extend™ Eye Illuminator Mascara Review

That’s probably my longest post title EVER!

L'Oreal I was given the opportunity to review the L'Oréal Paris® Double Extend™ Eye Illuminator Mascara. What I didn’t know was the The One Sweep™ Eye Shadow would be coming with it. Hello BONUS!IMG_5685 IMG_5686

The L'Oréal Paris® The One Sweep™ Eye Shadow is so cool. The applicator is wide and shaped to transfer the eye shadow from the palette to your eye. It does it with the colors being the right width and in the correct spot! I usually swipe twice. I’m still getting used to it.

When it comes to the L'Oréal Paris® Double Extend™ Eye Illuminator Mascara it makes my eyes POP! I even had a guy at my work comment about my eye, in a very non “come-on” way. It was really a boost that I’m doing something right.

This is available in four shades:

  • Black Copper for Blue Eyes
  • Black Bronze for Green/Hazel Eyes
  • Black Quartz for Brown Eyes
  • Black Crystal for All Eyes

I’m still trying to figure out if I can see a difference with the Illuminating Topcoat. The Basecoat definitely added intensity to my lashes. I’ve used the Topcoat a couple times and haven’t noticed the pearlescent accent.

I can definitely tell a difference in how my eyes look. For years I’ve gone make-up “less” and have recently been trying to spice things up a bit in my dull colorless world. I have to admit, it’s been really fun. I do love being natural, and do that more days than not, but it’s been so nice to have options, especially when I’m going to an event.

My first photo is with my bare eye. The second photo is with them dressed up. Yah, I know, I need to get my brows done. We’re not talking about those this time. =)






I was able to try these out because I’m a BzzAgent and received free samples from them. The opinions expressed are mine and never influenced by the company.
