An Exclusive Look at the L’Oréal Paris x Balmain Collection Shades

Fashion meets beauty in the L’Oréal x Balmain collaboration. This empowering collection includes 12 limited edition lipsticks. Each lipstick was curated by creative director of the Parisian fashion house and most followed designer on Instagram, Olivier Rousteing. The gorgeous matte lipsticks are split into three tribes and come in different coloured earthy stone tubes (green marble for the nature-inspired Glamazone, onyx for the glamourous Couture, and malachite for the edgy Rock). These lipsticks are going to look so luxurious in your handbag! Each shade name is inspired by character traits of powerful women, which is something we can get on board with! Here is an exclusive peek at all 12 beautiful shades:


Balmain certainly knows couture; so this must-have tribe celebrates the historic Parisian couture origins and is a tribute to fashion and glamour.

Confidence: This pearly nude can be worn on its own or layered over other lipsticks to illuminate the face, much like a sparkling Balmain gown.

Liberation: This irresistible deep mulberry tone brings high-edge drama to your look.

Domination: A red lip is an instant classic and this ruby hue is no exception. One swipe of this lipstick is sure to make you feel confident.

Confession: This peachy-nude is super flattering and will give your entire face a healthy glow, no matter your skin tone



The Glamazon tribe consists of four shades designed to awaken fierceness to those who wear them. These lipstick shades are inspired by tones that come from the earth and are reminiscent of the Amazon jungle.


Urban Safari: This is the ultimate nude lipstick that will flatter all skin tones.

Glamazone: This brown-tone grey shade is ideal for creating an exotic look. If you’re looking to try something a bit more daring, this is a great option for you.

Fever: This warm orange will look hot on everyone.

Balmain Instinct: No jungle collection would be complete without a khaki green. This shade is perfect for days when you’re feeling adventurous.



This tribe takes inspiration from music, breaking the rules, rebelling, and always staying true to yourself, which is really what true beauty is all about. This bold collection of shades is sure to make you feel like a rock star.


Freedom: This electric violet hue will have you turning heads with just a single coat.

Power: This dark brown shade suits all skin tones and will leave you feeling fearless
