The L’Oréal Paris “Diamonds” Holiday cosmetics collection will become available in November of 2012. The products are limited edition, and they are truly outstanding. The line consists of everything from lipsticks and eyeshadows to mascaras and nail lacquers. The brand says of the collection: “Celebrate your worth with brilliance this holiday season. In honor of the brand’s iconic tagline, ‘Because You’re Worth It,’ L’Oréal Paris introduces Diamonds, a limited-edition cosmetics collection with dazzling beauty essentials for eyes, lips and nails.”
There are three color schemes within the line: Love Diamond, True Diamond and Midnight Diamond. Within each scheme there are the following products: Exclusive shades of L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Nail polish (2), Infallible Le Gloss 8HR (2), Infallible 24H Eye Shadow (1) and a new offering in nail innovation, Colour Riche Nail Lingerie (2). They are nail stickers with 3D effects that are very easy to apply. One of the classic products from L’Oréal Paris will also be released as part of the collection: Voluminous Million Lashes Black Diamond Mascara, which is a jeweled version of the product.
A number of products from the collection were reviewed. Two Le Gloss shades: Dazzle Me (464) which is a shimmery pink, and Something Shiny (461) which is a shimmery gold shade. Both are gorgeous products. They are created with a longwearing formula, intended to last for up to eight hours after application. The shades are richly pigmented, and the color payoff is also outstanding. The shades will compliment every skin tone, and they are perfect for the holiday season.
The next product reviewed was the Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds in shade 687 which is a gorgeous black shade with silver sparkle. Like the original formula, the mascara lengthens and adds volume to one’s lashes, while also providing a sparkle. This is the perfect finishing touch to any holiday look.
The final eye product reviewed is an Infallible eyeshadow in shade Gold Imperial (407). The shade is truly pigmented and with just one application, the color payoff is opaque and visually stunning. There is no fallout during application, and the shimmer is fine, not chunky.
The last products reviewed were for the nails. A nail lacquer in shade Lifetime Love (602), which is a beautiful shimmery red is a wonderful shade for everyone. Red is the quintessential shade for the holidays, and this particular shade of red is truly gorgeous and flattering once applied. One can never go wrong with a red manicure, and this shade is truly a must-have. Two of the three Colour Riche Nail Lingerie nail stickers in various patterns were reviewed in Bling Addict (701), and Statement Piece (700). Another pattern is available as well in Razzle Be Dazzle (702). The nail stickers are easily applied, and will not damage one’s nails. They can be worn on top of unpainted nails, or painted nails.
Each product is beautiful and the shades are universally flattering. These limited edition items would be perfect as gifts, or additions to one’s cosmetics collection. The collection is truly something to celebrate this holiday season.
The line of limited editions products will range from $5.99 to $9.95. They will become available to consumers in November 2012 where L’Oréal Paris products are sold. For further details on L’Oréal Paris products, please visit the official website.
