What: Robin puts L’Oreal HIP Cream Shadow Paint, $11.99, to the test.
The Lowdown: When I first came across L’Oreal’s new HIP Shadow Paints, they immediately reminded me of M.A.C.‘s paints in the little metal tubes, which I’ve always been a fan of, despite their mess factor. What’s so genius about these is that they come with a little paint brush and are housed in a compact container with a mini custom application well that you can disperse the cream shadow in while you perfect your eye palette. Lofty is a neutral beige color with tons of gold shimmer and suitable for any skin tone—the perfect everyday shade. And for anyone who always seems to have trouble applying shadow (okay, maybe, it’s just me), this one is idiot proof. You just apply a bit to the brush and swipe it over your entire eyelid area. I got all day gold shimmer with no creases and no rub off issues.
Yea or Nay: Yay. This is must-have for any makeup maven’s beauty arsenal.
