NOTD: L'Oreal Brit Invasion

I couldn't resist L'Oreal's Brit Invasion as soon as I started seeing swatches of it pop up online... it's the perfect fall shade, a purpley-greige with tons of gold shimmer and a subtle iridescent microshimmer. I don't know if it quite lives up to my expectation of it, but it is lovely.

Brit Invasion is part of a limited edition nail polish collection from L'Oreal for the fall. The Colour Riche line of nail polishes run around $5.99 for .39 ounces, but you can find them for less and on sale pretty frequently.  I found Brit Invasion easy to apply; I didn't have any issues with it, and it was opaque in two coats.

Have a look-see:

I think that the color looks a bit warmer/ plummier in real life, but not much. You can see the shimmer on my nail really well in the second picture if you want to enlarge it.

Like I said, this is a really pretty shade, but I am not as head-over-heels for it as I thought I would be. I am glad I ended up purchasing it, though (and during a BOGO1/2 sale, no less).

Do any of you guys have this color? What do you think of it?


  1. Yup, I love it! Its such a great fall color!

  2. I got this one too,and the first time I wore it I was like meh.... BUT then I layered it on top of an opaque gray creme and it was much prettier,it looked like it had more depth to it,and looked exactly like the color in the bottle.When I wore it without anything underneath it,I was disappointed that it wasn't as pretty as the color in the bottle.

  3. That's pretty! I like how something 'Brit' is of course grey - weather inspired, I presume.

    1. Haha, I know! I guess that must have been the inspiration!

    1. Hopefully you can get it! I've been seeing it around, shouldn't be too hard to find if you keep your eyes open :)
