It's here!

Pretty in my Pocket is thrilled to announce that Perks (aka discounts!) are now redeemable for NYC Primpers.  L'Oréal  Paris Perks are live on Pretty in my Pocket from July 19th, 2013 - October 19th, 2013 at participating New York City Walgreens & Duane Reade locations. (Check the list of locations here.   L'Oréal Paris is offering 5 Looks associated with 5 Perks. Now you can re-create that red-hot Look at a discount! You can peruse through PRIMP's Looks feed to discover blogger, user, & brand created Looks - tagged with the EXACT products used. Everything you could possibly need to make an educated beauty decision is now at your fingertips - no more circling the drugstore beauty department for hours on end. 

I am a Power Primper with Pretty in my Pocket which means that PRIMP features me as an expert beauty blogger (woohoo!)!  It's super easy to find me & follow me on the app for all of my thoughts and reviews about beauty products.  I tested out some of the makeup products that L'Oréal Paris has in their Looks & Perks.  Here are my thoughts: 

LÓreal Color Riche Eyeshadows
++I was skeptical at first for the color combo, bit this quad is actually amazing!  You definitely need to pair with a base - the color payoff is great, but sticking power not so much.  To get the most out of the shimmery colors use a dense, flat brush in pressing motions.

LÓreal Voluminous Mascara
++This is one of my fave drugstore mascaras - it gives a soft fluffy lash and doesn't feel hard or clumpy.  It's easily build able and can go from subtle to dramatic with just a few coats.  I only wish it held a curl better and would wear better in heat & humidity.

LÓreal Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner
++This isn't the best wearing pencil, but I still love it.  I use it as a base to layer shimmery or iridescent eyeshadows a smokey twist.  It's great for a grungy smokey eye or liner, but not so much for a clean crisp look.  The color payoff is great and easily blend able as an eyeshadow

You can also find all my reviews on the PRIMP app.  Make sure you are following me on PRIMP for on-the-go Reviews, Looks, & more!  You can even check out my virtual beauty Bag for my must-have products.  

I created this Look with L'Oréal Paris (pictured above) products that are all available at a discount when using a PRIMP Perk.  

Take a peek at the Perks offered by downloading Pretty in my Pocket in the App Store (Android coming soon!), registering & creating a Profile, and then tapping "Perks" on the bottom navigation. PRIMP will display the closest Perks to you at your local Walgreens or Duane Reade stores!
