The fanciest drugstore packaging award goes to none other than the new limited edition L'OREAL Privee Collection.
I made a quick pit stop at CVS to restock my Kiss falsies stash when I ran into these babies. The display was near the front where limited edition and seasonal products are normally found. I'm sure you can guess what caught my eyes about these… of course, it was the packaging. Not only is the trim gold but the texture of the black encasing has the same smooth velvety feel and look that Nars cosmetics is known for.
I had a bunch of coupons and extra care rewards that were about to expire so I got the entire collection, why not. I figured if I'm going to swatch one for y'all might as well do them all! As for the Kiss lashes…I still need to restock my stash…
There is a total of 6 lipsticks all in the Nude family. Each nude color is designed to enhance your features based on your complexion.
I wouldn't exactly consider all of these colors to be "Nude" but rather shades that are easy to wear everyday when you use the one designated for your skin tone.
The colors are based on a shade that complements each ambassador's skin tone.
Ambassadors and Corresponding Color From Left To Right:
Doutzen Kroes - 600 - Fair-Light
Julianne Moore - 620 - Fair-Light
Jennifer Lopez - 370 Light - Medium
Eva Longoria - 610 - LIght-Medium
Freida Pinto - 350 - Medium-Warm
Liya Kebede - 630 - Medium-Warm
I found mine at CVS and I believe you can also find them at Walgreens but I haven't seen them anywhere else yet.
They Range from $5.99 all the way up to $9.99
I am a fan of L'OREAL Colour Riche lipsticks in general because of their creamy non drying formula. The scent is quite strong but surprisingly it doesn't bother me because I don't feel it lingers. I haven't really decided which color is my favorite but based on the ambassadors my perfect nude should be either Freida's Nude or Eva's Nude which are actually part of the 3 that I like the best! I also like Jennifer's Nude.
I will do another post showing swatches on my lips and maybe a video to go along with it :D
What do you guys think of this collection? Have you tried any of these yet?
