The collection will feature 12 matte lipsticks priced at $14 each, All ranging from nude to bold, check out the pics below and tell me which lipstick is on top of your list, in the comments belowDisclaimer: I do not own the pictures


Balmain x L’Oréal

It seems like "drugstore" Makeup lines are definitely refusing to stand in the background, after all when a girl wanted to wear makeup, she flocked to her local Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, etc right??? In recent years, brands such a Mac, Lancôme, Fashion Fair, Ester Lauder, became the "rage" among the younger makeup junkies, pushing drugstore makeup brands to the back burner, all that has been changing in recent years, Drugstore makeup brands have been stepping up their game and reformulating and repackaging causing just about every makeup artist no junkie cleaning off the shelves.
One brand that has been coming for the top spot is L'Oréal Paris. They caused a stir with their new mascara that is rivaling high end brand Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara packaging no all to now a collaboration with Balmain???!
Yes, the French Makeup brand is collaborating with the French Fashion brand to bring us 12 sassy, fashionable, bold, couture lipsticks!!! Now if you follow Balmain on their instagram and other handles as well as L'Oréal then you have seen a few sneak promo pictures, if not I have the pictures above. The pictures are not mine personally they were taken from Balmain's instagram page.
I am super excited, the collection is to drop September 17, 2017, so far not to much information has been out except there will be 12 lipsticks total. Balmain's creative director Oliver R. will most likely no, definitely have this line very couturish, the Balmain line is the most sought after line, did you see the frenzy it caused with the collaboration with H&M???
I am excited about the olive lipstick and of course the rose gold, simply because it's my favorite color!! The bluish purple will be a great addition to me because if you follow me then you know this girl love colors bold, bright on top of that!!! From the looks of it the lipstick is a dupe to Mac's "Royal Matte" I won't know for sure until I see more model makeup promo pictures.
Is anyone else excited? What are you getting? Comment and let me know!!
