Beauty news alert! The brand new L'Oréal Paris x Elie Saab limited edition bridal make-up collection is here and, spoilers, it looks seriously beautiful.
Inspired by Elie Saab's signature "beige rosé" shade, the four-piece line is a super affordable one, with all of the products coming in way below the £20 mark. Even better news, they're currently on sale at Lookfantastic, so there's never been a better time to refresh your make-up kit.
"I love the nude theme of this collection because it’s designed for everyone; it’s all about letting your natural beauty shine through," says Val Garland, BBC Glow Up judge and Global Make-up Artist for L'Oréal Paris. "My favourite must-have is the eye shadow palette. The pale pink, handcrafted leather cover is so soft and luxurious; it’s like a collector’s item."
"There are nine colors in the palette from a classic shimmering nude and rusty copper brown to a rich burgundy and forest green. The eye shadows are creamy in texture and incredibly pigmented; you can create any look with this palette, the choice is endless." Ding dong, you might say.

L'Oréal Paris x Elie Saab Limited Edition Paradise Mascara,
was £12.99 now £10.35 | Lookfantastic
The original Paradise Mascara is fortified with castor oil to strengthen lashes and has been reviewed thousands of times online. Perfect for sensitive eyes, it's perfect for potentially weepy brides (and mothers of the bride!).
"I wanted the collection to stay true to the essence of the ELIE SAAB Maison; femininity, grace and elegance, and to translate the codes of couture into the language of cosmetics for a new way to wear the brand," Elie Saab himself adds. "Makeup enables women to access a slice of magic every day, emphasizing their natural beauty and helping them to feel more attractive, sensual and confident."
Although the line is technically a bridal collection—Saab started out in bridal couture and has designed more than one royal wedding dress—obviously anybody can use these lovely products.
At those prices, the beauty collector in us is definitely excited. Race you to the checkouts!
