Earlier today I swatched some of the L’oreal Made for Me Intense colours, now I have 3 of the naturals – once again divided up into Blondes, Light Brunettes and Brunettes:
Even though there are these guidelines (which kinda make sense) rules are made to be broken!
The naturals range is a set of pale pinks and corals…
Tender Rose for blondes is a very pale frosty light pink.
Sensual Rose is a sheer orange based shimmery rose.
Luminous Coral is a orangey shimmery lipstick.
Tender Rose is definitely too pale for me! In this case I do recommend it for fair ladies since this is a bit too retro for those with olive skintones. However – it could be quite dramatic for a smokey eye.
Sensual Rose is on the shimmery side so leaves a glossy look behind. It’s more orangey than rosey on me but it does have a slight lip plumping effect which I like.
Luminous Coral for Brunettes is the most pigmented of the three and it’s a warm coral shade which is very pretty and wearable for spring.
Overall I prefer the intense shades as they made my lips look healthier – the nudes make my lips look drier although they’re more wearable for every day looks.
