L'oreal Hip Kohl Eyeliner and Color Presso Review and Swatches

So I received my first beauty products for review from total beauty today and I am so excited to do a review on these. And the best thing is: they're free! The catch: I have to do a review on my blog and do reviews on them on Not too shabby! Go HERE to see the requirements and submit your blog.

Onto the reviews!
Here's the first up: L'oreal Hip Kohl Eyeliner in Navy Kohl on the left and Gold Kohl on the right. To be honest, I put on Navy Kohl and I thought it was black- it's really dark.

Here are the 'brushes'. They're not really brushes they are like a bend-y stick, which does kinda make it easy to apply. But as you can see below, when they go on they are a bit flakey. Shimmery, but flakey. So the 'navy' one kinda flaked onto the lower part of my eye. I think I will like the gold one better just because I heard that gold goes better with blue eyes.

Up next: L'oreal Hip Color Presso Trendy on the right and Swanky on the left

The colors were great, but check out the applicators:



Just to push out both of these at the same time is kinda hard. I know that you can use either or but I like the combination of the both. Then getting it on your lips while pushing the lipglosses out is hard, too.

The swatches:Up top: Swanky
Bottom: Trendy

Overall I like the both of these a lot. I like the bend-y applicator for the eyeliners and I like the colors of the lipglosses.

What do you ladies think? Have you tried these before?

I have some of the kohl's and I agree with you, they're very messy and flaky. Which is too bad, because I loved the colors. The lip gloss does look a bit awkward, but I like the colors. I've sent in a couple requests to review for Total Beauty, but have never heard back :/

You have to be an active blogger for 3 months. It seemed like it took me forever to get there! Have you gotten to your 3 months yet? I know that you have gotten to your 100th post and you have soo many followers!

Oooh lucky you!

Some people depot those Kohl liners.
And I also heard those duo lippies are like the ones they have out already.

I know that I have seen both of these around before. I had contemplated buying the eyeliners and now I'm kinda glad I didn't!
