Here at Byrdie HQ, we've been eagerly awaiting the L'Oréal Paris x Isabel Marant makeup collection for a few months now. Teased back in June, the Parisian powerhouse designer announced her plans to launch a collection of chic day-to-night makeup essentials on 27 September, the same day as her Paris Fashion Week runway show.
And now, the collection has launched exclusively onto Feelunique.com meaning you can get your hands on the five Parisian cool-girl products first.
We've already had a sneak peek at the collection, and we're not going to lie—it's every bit as glamorous as we'd hoped. Housed in chunky black packaging, the coveted makeup line combines Isabel's trademark rugged style with French sophistication.
So what's in the collection, you ask? There's the best-selling L'Oréal Color Riche Matte Lipstick, which has been newly made over by Marant. There are seven timeless matte shades to choose from—each designed to suit every skin tone. There are two neutral lipstick shades, two plum shades and three iconic Parisian reds that'll transform you into a French girl in one quick swipe.
There's also a transparent Wanted mascara designed to amp up your lashes and comb through your brows, giving you an easy minimal makeup look on the go.
But our favourite item in the collection has to be the Shine Skin Beautifier, a gorgeous little pot of radiance that blurs, highlights and enhances the skin. It has a universal peach tone that adds glow, warming up paler skin tones and popping against darker complexions.
Warm it up with your fingertips, and dab it onto the high points of your face to give your skin a dose of je ne sais quoi.
A handy two-in-one lip and cheek gloss.
The seven über-chic matte lip colours. There's one for every day of the week.
A super-easy smoky-eye palette.
For wet-look lashes and killer brows.
Speaking about the collab, Marant said, "This makeup collection has been designed in the same way I design my ready-to-wear collections: wearable anytime, anywhere. It has been a dream to get really involved with makeup technology and to produce this collection of day-to-night and natural-to-smoky essentials that I have always wanted."

We've got to give it to her: Marant knows the Parisian cool-girl look like no other. The L'Oréal Paris x Isabel Marant collection really does offer everything you need to throw in your handbag and touch up your look throughout the day.
