L'Oreal Mono Riche eye shadow singles


I don't usually buy drugstore eyeshadow - not as a rule or anything, but I'm fairly loyal to the eyeshadow brands I love best, so I rarely feel the need to venture out of my comfort zone.

And then I saw these new L'Oreal Colour Riche eyeshadow singles. Beauty Youtuber Tati had purchased a bunch of these and swatched them on her channel, claiming their amazingness, so I had to give them a try. And that resulted in me doing something highly uncharacteristic - I bought the entire collection. (Luckily, these are just a few bucks each, so it's not, like, buying every single Urban Decay eyeshadow single.)

Ooh baby - these are smooth and velvety, and wonderfully pigmented. L'Oreal, have your eyeshadows always been this awesome?? Because then that means I've been missing out!

There are fifteen in total, numbered 200-214. I have them laid out below in numerical order, and I think they actually work well in these five-color groupings. The only downside is that these shadows are pressed into their plastic cases (rather than metal pans), so I can't depot these into a Z-palette.

See below for swatches and individual shade names and close-ups.



Top row: 200, 201, 202, 203, 204
Middle row: 205, 206, 207, 208, 209
Bottom row: 210, 211, 212, 213, 214
200 - Paris Beach (matte)

(When I say matte, I don't mean totally matte. There's a little bit of a satiny sheen to all the mattes, really.)
