I have always loved the L’Oreal range of eyeshadows as they’ve always provided a result that seems to surprise you in one way or another. The Chrome intensity eyeshadows are supposed to give your eyes that real intense look you can only get with highly pigmented eyeshadows.
The range is available at variable prices depending on where you shop from around £5 and Chrome intensity has a selection of 4 colours to pick from.
Blue Jean is a vibrant shiny blue that looks pretty in the packaging which made me think it’d be just as good on. The eyeshadow comes with a handy applicator brush which glides on easily with minimal powder and after only one or two applications you have a really strong colour to set off your look.
Blue Jean is probably a little ott for a day time look as it gives off a strong smokey look more suited to a glam night out (even though I wore it) but if you have neutral lips and cheeks it may be good to add a little va va voom to surprise your work mates. After a few hours unfortunately the eyeshadow does start to seperate and you can start to see your eyelid through the shadow. Not a good look. However as the colour is so strong in the first place unless you look really closely that isn’t as obvious as it might be with some eyeshadows.
Overall a strong eyeshadow that applies well but could just stay on that bit longer.
- Strong colour
- Easy to apply
- Even after losing its staying power the colour is still quite vibrant
- Can be quite pricey depending on how much you pay for your cosmetics
- Starts to rub off after a couple of hours
L’Oreal Chrome Intensity blue jean is available in all good supermarkets/beauty stores.
