L’Oreal Eva’s Red Colour Riche Lipstick Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick Eva

L’Oreal Eva’s Red Colour Riche Lipstick is a custom shade of lipstick inspired by Eva Longoria that makes an appearance in the new L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection.

L’Oreal carefully curated the Pure Reds Lipstick Collection with shades of red inspired by some of their current and past celebrity and model ambassadors. Each shade was created to flatter a different skin tone, hair, and eye color which in turn enables you to purchase your perfect shade of red lipstick.

I happen to be of the mentality that you should never limit yourself when it comes to color cosmetics! If you like, wear it! I don’t let any skin tone rules dictate whether or not I should or shouldn’t wear neon pink eyeshadow should I please. I do have exceptions to that little rule though and it comes in the form of red lipstick. Red lipstick happens to be like snowflakes, no two are a like. It’s a shade I delight in and put plenty of fear in as sometimes I feel like a clown when I’m wearing it. I do feel that some reds are better on me than others so in this case I tend to navigate to warmer shades of reds versus cooler, blue based ones. Do I limit myself here? Perhaps! But for me, red lipstick is the only exception I have when it comes to color and I tend to carefully select shades that look best on my skin tone.

This isn’t to say you should ever limit yourself! But I personally like the idea of a collection of red lipsticks with models who represent a range of different skin tones which helps me considerably when selecting my perfect shade of red!

L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Swatches

L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick

The L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection arrives in the US just time for Spring 2015. This collection features nine shades of custom red lipstick based upon L’Oreal celebrity and model ambassadors from the past and present. Each L’Oreal Colour Riche Red Lipstick shade represents a different skin tone enabling you to choose your perfect shade of red.

The collection is a follow up to last year’s Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipstick launch which was all about the perfect shade of nude lipstick. Last year, the collection only consisted of six shades so this year we are getting a good deal of more shades to try out. I don’t believe this collection is limited edition but don’t quote me. It is available right now at Walgreens which state it as “exclusively ours” but reports from reader’s state that they have seen the collection at other drugstores.

The L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipsticks did get a UK launch earlier this year but not all the shades we are seeing here in the us. The nine shades of red lipstick are inspired by Blake Lively, Liya Kebede, Freida Pinto, Julianne Moore, Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Lopez, Eva Longoria, and Zoe Saldana as well as one additional shade titled Because You’re Worth It Red.

Take a look below for swatches!

L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection Launches in the US

L'Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection

The L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection has launched in the US and is now available exclusively at Walgreens! You might recall last year L’Oreal introduced the Collection Privee Colour Riche Lipstick which consisted of six shades of nude lipsticks! This year the L’Oreal Collection Private Reds Lipstick Collection has a selection of nine shades of red.

Just like the Collection Privee Colour Collection these are nine shades of custom made red shades which are based upon L’Oreal celebrity models each of which has a different skin tone enabling you to make the perfect selection of red (although I’m of the mentality you shouldn’t limited yourself when it comes to different colors of reds! Be a rebel, try something new, you might love it!).

I believe the original L’Oreal Collection Private Pure Reds Lipstick Collection in the UK consisted of only four shades! So we are getting a considerable larger collection in the US.

L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 Review & Swatches

L'Oreal La Palette Nude Eyeshadow Palette

The L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 Eyeshadow Palette ($19.99) is one of two, new permanent 10 pan eyeshadow palettes that’s launching now at drugstores. L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 is a nod to Urban Decay’s Naked Eyeshadow Palettes, Maybelline’s the Nudes Eyeshadow Palette, etc….

Natural, nude matte shades of shadow have been hitting the mark for Spring looks but as we head into Summer I think you’re going to see a lot more of the trend! Granted we had a huge wave of eyeshadow palettes that went nude soon after Urban Decay released its original Naked Eyeshadow Palette but it’s interesting to see drugstore brands finally catching up to this trend.

The L’Oreal La Palette Nude 1 Palette actually had a release late last year in the UK so some of you may have already gotten your hands on it and tried it out. I’m happy to report it is now starting to pop up in permanent L’Oreal displays around the US.

Let’s take a look at the palette below!
