As a beauty blogger, sometimes I contact brands to request products I would like to try or products readers have requested that I review. But sometimes, products that I never knew existed – and are a million times better than anything I could’ve asked for – just show up on my doorstep. Today was that kind of day.
I returned from a long day at work to be greeted by a goody box from L’Oreal Paris. Inside was their brand new New York Nudes Collection, a sophisticated limited-edition range that includes six flesh-toned shades of Colour Riche Nail and coordinating Colour Riche Le Gloss. These modern shades – from soft ivory to rich ebony – beautifully complement the unique tonalities of women of all skin tones – creating a flawless nude look.
How gorgeous are these colors?!? With every new product debut, I fall deeper and deeper in love with L’Oreal Paris – and this particular collection is no exception. In fact, when I opened up the package, I was positively giddy. As a brown beauty blogger who has seen/tried hundreds of “nude” cosmetics that look nothing like my complexion, these lippies and lacquers were a welcome gift.
I haven’t tried the polishes yet (check back soon), but the glosses look decadent on the lips and taste delish too! It’s very fitting that this collection of vanilla, caramel, praline and chocolate glosses are flavored like a sweet treat.
Colour Riche Nail ($5.99) and Colour Riche Le Gloss ($7.95) are available now at chain drug, food and mass market retailers. I suggest you get to the store and stockpile these babies because I predict they will be flying off shelves faster than a New York minute.
Which shades are your faves? Tell me in the comments.
