Summer 2012: L'oreal

By Wednesday, June 27, 2012 , , , , , , , , , ,

Summer is here and part of my week long showcase of upcoming summer products I've decided to show off what is new and exciting from L'oreal Paris Canada.

I'm super excited about so many of these items. I was lucky enough to get to go to a summer preview hosted by the brand a few weeks back to learn, see and play with the new products. Let's just say you won't be disappointed with their summer offerings for 2012.

Colour Riche Caresse Lipcolour
"Colour Riche introduces the next generation of lipcolour – fresh and light in 12 gorgeous shades! Colour Riche Caresse offers sensually luminous colour with 50% less heavy wax than a traditional lipstick. The effect is a sultry translucent colour, weightless feel and ultra modern shine."
Shades: Cotton Pink, Pink Cashmere, Blushing Sequin, Velvety Fuchsia , Rose Taffeta, Violet Chiffon, Sunset Angora, Fiery Veil, Cardinal Plume, Cherry Tulle, Silky Java, Sheer Linen Suggested Retail Price: $12.99.
Now you may have seen my blog swatting these babies (if not they are here).  I must say the last few weeks that I have been able to try these out that I have fallen head over heals in love with them. They are soft, glossy, silky to the touch, come in amazing colours, vibrant but suitable...everything you want for the summer. I cannot say enough good things about these. As soon as they hit the shelfs you should check them out.

Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H Eyeliner
"The first gel eyeliner from L’Oréal Paris, this luxurious formula gives a unique black- lacquer effect that’s incredibly dimensional – never flat or ashy. Combined with the legendary Infallible long-wear technology and a luxurious brush for professional precision, Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H gives your eyes 24 hours of absolute perfection."
Shades: Blackest Black & Slate Suggested Retail Price: $12.99 
This black as can be liner goes on extremely rich and dark and even comes with its own brush. The brush is an added little touch that makes it even better, with the ability to draw fine lines or wider ones and holds together without fraying it sounds absolutely amazing. As I am always on the lookout for a new and better longer lasting black liner I will be trying this one out ASAP. Swatches below.

La Couleur Infallible Eyeshadow – New Dual-Pigment Shades!
"Introducing 6 new, show-stopping shades to this award-winning line of eye shadows featuring 24 hour-pigment technology that resists creasing, rubbing and 11,000 blinks. Using duo-chrome technology, each luscious new Dual-Pigment shade is actually a combination of 2 different complimentary pigments to create a dimensional, multi-faceted effect on eyes for eye shadow that’s not only infallible – it’s unforgettable."
Shades: Metallic Lilac, Magnetic Coral, Innocent Turquoise, Sassy Chamallow, Tender Caramel, Pepsy Coral Suggested Retail Price: $10.99 
You might already know this about me, but I love La Couleur infallible shadows, LOVE THEM. To hear new shades were coming out got me excited, but then to learn they are dual-pigment colours, well that got me very very excited. If you haven't tried anything from the La Couleur Infallible line out yet now is the perfect time. I have already seen a display sporting all these colours at my local Walmart, so keep your eyes peeled. In fact I have "Pepsy Coral" already (swatches below).

Visible Lift Repair Absolute Compact Foundation
"Helps to reverse the signs of aging by providing full coverage to reduce the appearance of fine lines and dark spots. Contains anti-aging ingredients Pro- Retinol A, Hyaluronic & Pro-Lastyl to brighten, revitalize and even skin tone for more youthful, radiant looking skin."
Shades: 12 shades from Soft Ivory to Classic Tan Suggested Retail Price: $18.99
Oh a foundation that helps my skin as it ages, I want. It has full spectrum SPF 16, which is amazing. This stuff feels amazing and well I have a sample but it is far too dark for me so I'll have to wait a little longer to try it out. But let us just say, it looks amazing and the anticipation is killing me.  

True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation
Guarantees luminous, shine-free and visibly healthier skin in 4 weeks. Its formula contains 40% pure water - to ensure freshness and all day hydration - combined with Vitamins C and E, SPF 20 and liquid Anderson technology that optimizes light reflection and intensifies luminosity. Imperfections are instantly minimized and in just four weeks, skin is clearer, more even toned, and more luminous. 
Shades: 14 shades from Porcelain – Light Ivory to Nut Brown – Cocoa Suggested Retail Price: $18.99
I've already seen this in my local Shoppers Drug Mart, so keep your eyes peeled. This foundation has spf 20. This foundation is meant to make you look flawless and over time help with flaws in your skin. I cannot wait to try this one out on my face. Right now I have a sample that is way too dark. I will purchase ASAP and review for you.

Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream
"The latest addition to L’Oréal Paris’ popular Magic family of cosmetics, this innovative BB cream primes, perfects, hydrates and corrects all-in-one-step. It contains L’Oréal’s exclusive new patented Beautifying Beads featuring micro-pigment capsules that instantly melt on contact with your skin to self-adjust to your skin tone. It also features Vitamin E and hydrates skin for up to 24-hours. For easy application, the product comes out of the tube white so you can see where you’ve applied it. Best of all, it creates the perfect nude look every time."
Shades: Fair, Light, Medium & Deep Suggested Retail Price: $16.99
This BB goes on white but changes to the right shade when blended. There are nifty little pigments beads coated in nutrients that melt onto the skin and create beautiful self adjusted look for your skin. I got a sample of this too, but sadly too dark, I will swatch below though. I did get to try this out on my skin when I got a makeover at the Luminato tent though and loved how my skin felt. I will buy as soon as I can and do a review.

Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator
"This new BB cream with SPF 15 evens, perfects, protects, moisturizes, illuminates and corrects skin in just one simple step. Featuring L’Oréal’s patented Micro Pearls and Light Boost Technology, the new BB Cream makes skin glow and look more radiant. The formula also features Vitamin B3, Cg and Pro-Cysteine and Recoverine to help diminish and even out pesky dark spots."
Shades: Light & Medium Suggested Retail Price: $23.99 
Being a massive fan of anything Youth Code  I must say I must HAVE this, I want it now!! With BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 15 and a beautiful texture, this BB helps get rid of dark-spots and even out skin tone while giving your skin a does of vitamins and other amazing skin nutrients.  Woohoo. I want, oh wait I said that already. 

Voluminous Power 24H Mascara
"Creates voluptuous, long-wearing volume thanks to a collagen-enriched formula, mega-brush and intense shades. Lashes are plumped and volumized for 15X lash impact that lasts for 24 hours."
Shades: Black, Blackest Black, Black Brown, Waterproof Black, Waterproof Blackest Black Suggested Retail Price: $11.99

Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Black Lacquer Mascara
"This new shade of the popular Voluminous False Fiber Lashes mascara provides vinyl-sheen, creating lashes that are ultra-black, ultra-glossy and ultra-outrageous." Suggested Retail Price: $11.99 

It sounds like with both these additions to the Voluminous line of mascaras that L'oreal has improved them even further, how exciting. The false finer on intrigues me the most, I have yet to find a Fiber mascara that I really love and high hopes for it, plus glossy lashes --yes please! The 24 hour mascara interests me because, well there are two waterproof shades. I love mascara but need a hardcore waterproof mascara. I will let you know how they hold up once I give it a try.

So that is what is new this summer at L'oreal, look out for the items at your local stores.

Personally almost everything is a must have for me. The lipsticks are amazing, the shadows are fantastic and I cannot wait to try the BB and foundations out. Oh the anticipation is killing me...
