L'Oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Electrified and Shocked

I mentioned about L'oreal HIP coming out with new duo eyeshadows (click here to refresh your memory) in matte and metallic. I bought two metallic one this week. I decided to pass on the matte until I hear more reviews about it (since it's brand new). I already know the metallic ones are good from last years collection.

I got it in Electrified and Shocked. They were on BOGO free sale at Ulta. So I got these for $7.99.
I also got Neutrogena Body Scrub for $5 something (I can't remember the exact price). This was also on sale and plus I needed a new body scrub.

If anyone knows of a good body scrub, PLEASE tell me! :)

I need one for my rough skin! I have tiny, white bumps unfortunately. Anyways, it worked out well for me. If you spend more than $10, you can use your coupon to get $3.50 off.

Back to L'oreal HIP metallic eyeshadows...
Electrified is a gorgeous tan and purple colors.
Shocked is a peachy and olive color.
Here are the swatches on my wrist. The left two are Electrified and the right two are Shocked. They have a mixture of really metallic and not so metallic. By the way, this is taken with one swipe of color. I love the metallic line because the quality are good and pigmented.

I did two looks with these eyeshadows. I know I'm not as good as other people, but at least I try.

What I used:
My looks:

MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
L'oreal HIP in Electrified:
* tan color on the lid
MAC in Mulch on the crease
MAC in Magnetic Fields on the outer "V" and outer bottom 2/3
CG Sugar Rush as highlight
L'oreal HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black
Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Duo in Smashing Beacon on the inner corner & inner bottom 1/3 (white side)
Maybelline Lash Stiletto

What I used:
My looks:

MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
L'oreal HIP in Shocked:
* peachy color on the lid
MAC in Expensive Pink on 2/3 lid
MAC in Magnetic Fields on the crease, outer "V", and outer bottom 2/3
L'oreal HIP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner in Black
Smashbox Cream Eye Liner Duo in Smashing Beacon on the inner corner & inner bottom 1/3 (white side)

I've been into matte type nail polishes recently. I hauled two from OPI.
The last one I got is In My Back Pocket. It's such a pretty coral color. I wore this last week and it's love!!! Check out all the swatches of my OPI collection (click here).

I'm going to end my post with my haul from J-town.
This is my second time getting this lipgloss. I gave the first one away. :/ It was more expensive second time around... lol~ I got NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Beige. I don't know why it's called Beige when it's not.
I couldn't resist this bag. It's so cute. This is my new makeup bag!

I saw the new L'Oreal HiP colors at Walgreens as well. I'm wondering about the matte colors, too. Nice HK bag you got there, sister!

btw, I like your new layout.

kawaiikao said...

ooh yay for new H.I.P. duos. i love the metallic ones. i have a couple myself :]

izumi said...

oooo lemme know how that body scrub is! i've been looking for one too~ she recently had a post talking about the 18-19 best body scrubs if you wanna check it out :)

ndoodles said...

That bag is ADORABLE!! Love~ And I love your eye looks! The shadow worked pretty well then.

Askmewhats said...

first of all great buy! the bag is sooo cute!!!! :)

I love the L'oreal Hip swatches you've done and they look wonderful on your eyes :D

Blair said...

I like Shocked and your HK makeup bag! Super cute!

You must teach me how you take such beautiful pictures! Love your EOTDs!!!

I think I got a brown palette from Visee... I'm not sure I've got to go back and check hahaha

~tHiAmErE~ said...

i really heard good feedbacks from the hip duo...that they're really pigmented..& looking at your eyes..i must say that they are!

that makeup bag looks so cute!

Jo said...

i am liking that orange nail color by OPI!

Blair said...

Yes boss! It's Brilliance Forming Eyes in A-1.

Oooh, you might want to give Shiseido Integrate a try. I have an Integrate palette heeee~

Thanks for the tips! I'll try to do it your way but in my room cos my bathroom window is too high hahaha.

Blair said...

Yup, A-1 is from the summer collection released in June. You are very updated! hahaha

This is my Integrate palette. It was sort of a blind swap but I was super happy with the items that was chosen for me =D

I might be doing a FOTD, so I'll be trying out your technique very very soon! Thank you for the tips!

Blair said...

Hmmm... I think you should get those brands that aren't really available on adambeauty or imomoko or whatever, like Susie NY. I saw lots of girls using Susie NY in Japanese magazines.

Or maybe you can get items from the fall collections eg Lavshuca since you don't own any palettes from them.

Right, these are just my suggestions, feel free to ignore them! =D

gio said...

The L'Oreal shadows look really nice, esp Shocked.

Love your new makeup bag, it's sooo cute!

Blair said...

There are lots of brands out there! I just learned of them too, so don't worry ;p

Here are somemore brands that hopefully you haven't heard of: Tiffa (by Kanebo), Kiss, Gransenbon (famous for their blushers) and Canmake (quite cheap).

Blair said...

A blonde anime character? That should be Bihada Ichizoku =D Kiss's items have quite cute packaging.

Ahhh, you have quite a lot of Japanese cosmetics! =D

I think I'm going to stop buying blushers! They all look the same on my cheeks hahaha.What do you think? Is there a difference when you have them on your cheeks?

I'm going to concentrate on eyeshadow palettes and foundations because both my liquid foundations don't suit me now =[ The next time I buy foundations, I'm going to have them match my arms/hands instead of my face!

Oh btw, I'm in love with Seung Ri from Big Bang! It's your fault for introducing me to Gold Miss... from GM I noticed BB and the rest is history hahaha. Have you heard of this song?

Jo said...

thanks! yes you can never go wrong with korean goodies yummy!

Melissa said...

I love your haul, especially the Hello Kitty makeup bag & the gargantuan green grape nailpolish!

Jo said...

i haven't tried the plum flavour but i will keep an eye out for it next time i'm rummaging through the asian markets haha

Christine said...

OOO! The shadows look so pretty.

I saw beige today and totally thought of you. You're so right... it's not beige at all haha

Blair said...

Oooh, the famous Japanese market! I'm assuming it's either Marukai or Mitsuwa or something similar to that? You guys get more Japanese stuff than us in Malaysia hahaha.

Oh yes, I've been meaning to ask you! I noticed that some (most/whatever) Japanese brands release two brown palettes for each collection. One palette would be warmer than the other. Which one would you choose and why? I can't figure out which one would suit me better =[ Btw, B-1 and B-2 are super pretty! =D

I have four blushers so far haha - most of them are pinks. NARS Orgasm, MAC Well Dressed, MAC Blush of Youth and ELF Studio Blushed. I love them all except for the last one ;D

2PM has lots of members!!! Thanks for the rec, I love catchy songs =D Which group is more popular in Korea, Big Bang or 2PM?

Blair said...

I'd be surprised if you have lesser blushers than me! ;p

Yes boss! Actually, I am thinking of buying a peachy blush from Bourjois - Lune D'or =D And maybe Canmake Cheek Gradation in #4. Damn, I want a lot of blushers for someone who just said that she needs to stop buying blushers;p

Hmmm... I might get BR-2 from Kate's Diamond Cut Eyes. Reflect Mirror Eyes won't make their way here so soon since Diamond Cut Eyes appeared in the stores early this month. And I'm not too fond of the lighter brown shades in the warmer palettes, they are very very warm if that makes sense hahaha.

Are there any cute guys in 2PM? There are so many of them, I got confused hahaha. Can you rec somemore catchy songs from Big Bang?

miRaCLe said...

awww.. pretty eotds!! ^^ love both look..hehes :D
I wish I can do that to my eyes too!! :p but i'm still too lousy :/

love love love those matte opi!

the HK pouch is so CUTE!! lovely black and white HK! :D

Blair said...

Ahhh, I love blushers! But I don't have many cos my sister and mother asked me not to use them. So this is why I don't have many =[ If you're wondering why, it's because I have acne scars on my cheeks (blemished started plaguing me around 1.5 years ago. The main reason why I have so many concealers).

Oh yeah, MQ's fall collection was released yesterday and they're quite pretty! You can give one of their e/s palettes a try ;D I am eying BR365 which is a LE palette from a collaboration with Alexander Wang. It's either BR365 or 02 from Lunasol, I can't afford both hahaha. I dunno, I think MQ might turn out to be more expensive compared to Lunasol since the case is sold separately -.-

I'll put in more effort into searching for 2PM's Again and Again =D Oh gosh, I don't know any members in 2PM at all ;p I think one of them looks like Rain (I guess it's a Korean thing haha). Which 2PM/Big Bang member is your favourite?

Vanessa M. said...

such pretty eyes! i love the philosophyscrub... im actually gna do a post on it soon ;)

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

a cute HK pout!!

the eye-shadows look fab on you. the pigmentations look great!!

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

oops i mean pouch lol

Sandiebaby~ said...

that hello kitty pouch is like mine. i love mine so much!! hehehe :)

i love loreal hip duo eyeshadows but too bad they dont stock it here in sydney :( poo..

Blair said...

Nooooo I didn't try to tempt you to spend more ;p So I'm assuming you are getting a palette each from Blackish Forming Eyes and Reflect Mirror Eyes?

Tae Yang is the bald one right? Or should I say with the least amount of hair? hahaha. What? All of them are shorties?? What is their average height?

I was watching 2PM performing live on YT! Their dance and flips are choreographed perfectly! Nice! That reminds me, I need to search for Again and Again hahaha

Blair said...

Hmmm... I would say B-1 from Visee and PK-1 or PU-1 from Kate. I have a clearer picture of GY-1 from a Japanese magazine and the top left hand colour is a cool brown shade... so I don't think you'd want to go for it if you're getting B-1 from Visee. And since you don't have pinkish colours, PK-1 would be a good choice, don't you think so? PU-1 is in because I like it hahaha ^^

I kind of regret getting A-1 because I have PK760 from Integrate (hahaha I sort of forgot about it because I've never opened/used it) ;p

Do you know if the fall MQ palettes are cream or powder shadows? If they are all cream shadows like the summer ones, then I'll stick to getting BR-2 from Kate hahaha.

G-Dragon looks young - super baby faced! I don't know what Seung Ri is singing in Strong Baby, so even if GD wrote a bunch of crap, I wouldn't know it hahaha. I want to hop on a plane to Korea and marry SR hahahaha

What? Don't tell me almost all of them are shorter than me! How can guys be so short?!
