Askmewhats Version: "L'oreal Hip Sassy" look

When I did a review on my first L'oreal HIP e/s duo, Nabi , Alyssa, Lizlin commented on wanting to see how the L'oreal HIP e/s duo would look. To the sweet ladies and the rest of the readers who are interested, this one's for you :D

It is honestly difficult as I said in my review as seen here, because the colors that are together aren't that "matched" (in my opinion). I would usually use this separately with something else, something bright as using the 2 shades together is a bit too dark for me. But for the sake of review and to show the color combination of these, I've used both together and added a bit of "gold" to brighten up everything :D Hope you guys like it.


This is what L'oreal Sassy looks like



A close-up shot
L-color is used all over my lids
R-color (bluish) was applied on the outer crease going in
BLEND BLEND BLEND!
R-color (bluish) was also lined below my eyes
I pat on Milani Sun Goddess on my lids just to brighten up the overall look





And here's me saying....



Additional products used ---

Stila Smudgepots in Black
Paul & Joe Curly Mascara in Black
Revlon blush in Rose
The Face Shop Lip gloss



Want your own L'oreal HIP e/s duo?
Can't have 'em like me?
Let's all write a letter to L'oreal!!!
Beauty addicts, UNITE! *lol*

  3. Personal mention, I'm touched! I don't even remember asking about L'Oreal HiP! :P

    A friend gave me a L'Oreal HiP e/s duo in Retro, royal blue with shimmery beige (link on my name here), a better combo perhaps? It is very pigmented, but it's kinda hard to blend.

  7. Oh ate ! I like that color ! Actually, I went to the store and saw the deal buy one get one free on HIP and I got 2 HIP eyeshadow, I didn't remember what color you got at that moment (I knew that you had gold and purple though), I think I got the sassy like you did, I'm at work so I'm not really sure. I didn't even open it yet lol so...I like that part, BLEND BLEND BLEND ! I use that term alot too :D I like your smile.

  13. Spankedelic, this is my first to try teal and browns together, i guess it works huh!

    NicNic, thanks girl!

    Liz, LOL I thought I remembered you asking something like that, i guess when we were chatting at Facebook? I'm not sure, i just don't remember as well, dang! I'm getting old! quite forgetful now! lol

    Yellowfever, yes, you guys can wait for the sale as i'm sure there will be lots of sale there! I find L'oreal hip e/s duo not so cheap eh? So I guess I should ask my friend to buy me when they're on sale! You're right..BILLS BILLS! they really kill the make-up shopping! lol or is it the other way around? lol

    Alyssa, awww...smiling is definitely the best form of medicine? that's my motto! I love smiling! I just can't laugh too hard ..i'll *fart* LOL

    ebeautyblog..don't talk to me when you're telling me about the sale or buy 1 take 1 whatever :( :( :( *LOL* but you can say i have a lovely smile AGAIN AND AGAIN please? hahahaha

    Nabi, you too?? another buy 1 take 1??? Are you guys ganging up on me? (faints) Li'l sis, I got a nice smile coz my li'l sis have a great portfolio as well! *hugs*

    Prettybeautiful, thanks dear

    Sab, yeah? it works? I was a bit hesitant to use it together talaga! I felt so "dim"

    Psychoexgirlfriend, well..I have to admit, I added a bit of "gold" on that look, as I said, i felt so "dark" I wanted something to bring out the look!

    Nilla, thanks!

  22. this is such a pretty look! great job! i agree that some of the duo colors don't look like they seem to compliment each other (mainly the ones with the bolder colors), but the neutral ones look pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Looking pretty as always! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Aww that's pretty. Lovely mix of colours :)

  25. Tracy, oohh I just asked my friend to help me buy those L'oreal Hip duos for me...I honestly felt it is TOOO difficult to choose!!! And I find that I had a hard time combining both colors so I bought basically Neutrals :)

    Nessa, thanks darling! Glad you had a great trip with Anne!

    Tine...darling! Thanks, I try so hard! to make it look right! *winks*

    ReplyDelete
  26. same with you, i would have used the colors separately but the combi looked neutral with an extra oomph, still turned out great! :) i dunno if i will try L'Oreal e/s though... <<< snob! lol.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mhean!!! you SNOB! LOL i don't have problem with it's pigmentation, I don't have problem with it's lasting power, the only problem is the color itself! I find it a li'l bit too..hmm....dark? even their loud colors are too dark! You really have to combine it to something else!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow Nikki! That was absolutely beautiful. You made teal and brown match! =)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Teeyah, nice to see you here, thanks for the compliment :D

    ReplyDelete
  30. you are so pretty with amazing skin;)

    ReplyDelete
  31. lol, MAC made me like this. :D are all their selections this dark? then yeah, that is not much of a nice e/s collection. :-/ although they're very nice for clubbing, but a li'l dark for daywear.

    ReplyDelete
  32. You are too cute! :)

    I heard this duo is a great dupe for MAC Satin Taupe (and something else, but I forgot...). I do like the look you did, though!
