Balmain X L’Oreal: Confidence

It’s no secret that the Balmain aesthetic is illustrious and coveted. As one of my favorite brands, I long to get my hands on an iconic jacket or dress. The price tag, however, assures that for now those pieces will remain dreams. But have no fear! Today, I have a little piece of the Balmain aesthetic in my hands and it’s only $14 a tube!

This newest collaboration brings 12 bold shades that emulate the “Balmain girl” and a price range more accessible to every girl. As soon as I saw the campaign shades released, I knew Confidence was the one I wanted. A shimmery nude rose gold, this color is gorgeous and perfect if you’re a rose gold addict like I am. The formula is creamy and I appreciate that the glitter isn’t gritty feeling. The smell is quite strong but not unpleasant, it kind of reminds me of baby oil gel so just be aware. Other than the shade, the packaging is my favorite feature. The tube isn’t quite rectangular, the interesting angles and the sleek black and gold give a glamorous feel. The closure has a groove the fit the top and bottom together and the “Balmain” across the tube is spelled out in the iconic font. It’s details like these that make me whole heartedly recommend this lipstick

Stay fly,

  1. Hey Akilah, I tried reaching you some time ago about a collab but never heard anything back to you. Thought I’d try again via the comments as my mail perhaps didn’t reach you. If you’re open for collabs I’d love to get in touch with you. Feel free to write directly to my email if you’re interested. Thanks 🙂
