Drugstore divas gather round. L’Oreal Fall Collection 2010 should be at your local drugstores already and you probably have been privy to a majority of the release and possibly played with some of it already. But if you somehow missed out here’s the deets on what you can expect from L’Oreal this Fall!
So off the topic of makeup but have you tried Wonka Exceptionals Fruit Marvels. OMG Loves! I nicked a tin from my friend’s purse about two weeks ago and I’ve ever after been a Fruit Marvels addict. It’s fruity crack people! First off, seriously, someone should send a memo to Willy Wonka that the website stinks. After inhaling my first tin of these bad boys I proceeded to WANT more and my search around drugstores was uneventful, I came back empty handed, no delicious candy crack to be had. So like a good techy geek I logged on to the Wonka site (www.wonka.com) and they make no mention of these around (granted, I didn’t register but still!? WTH? Where’s the deets on this candy crack!?). They mention the Wonka Exceptionals Chocolates but nada about Fruit Marvels.
So far, haven’t had much lucky scoring anymore. Sad, irritated little pout but I hear they might be available in other flavors, that makes me want to put a little extra effort into my search.
Oh sorry you wanted deets what they taste like right? I got the Pomegranate ones and they are basically a hard shelled candy, kinda like a sucker of some sort, that are filled with a jelly, liquid-y center kinda Turkish Delight-like. Turkish Delight is one of my fav sweets of all times, buy me some and I’m yours, so this could be why Fruit Marvels appealed so much to me as they have the same sort of concept going on, sugary coated deliciousness.
Anyway, ’nuff ’bout candy and the likes. Let’s get on with the makeup eh?
L’Oreal has introduced the Stars Never Fail Lipcolour Compact Collection for Fall 2010 which includes personally selected shades from Beyonce, Andie MacDowell, Diane Keaton, Eva Langoria Parker, Kate del Castillo, and Linda Evangelista. L’Oreal wanted to go with a diverse group of women that represented various age groups, styles, and ethnicities. I think it’s safe to say the concept of going with such a wide range of various women is really a great idea considering makeup junkies come in sorts of shapes, sizes, ages, and colors, don’t we?
L’Oreal HIP High Drama Volumizing Mascara should be making a guest starring appearance at your drugstore. Anyone try?
I was muddling around with it today and kinda liked it.
L’Oreal is slowly fading out some of the HIP line and replacing it with what it deems the Studio Secrets Professional Collection. Many of the older HIP pieces you know and love may be gone and replaced with new items featuring the Studio Secrets label. Now this doesn’t mean HIP is gone but it just appears L’Oreal is trying to mass market the HIP line and make it more appealing to a universal consumer rather than a younger crowd.
You may remember that one of the first potted gel liners available from the HIP Collection were the Colour Truth ones. Recently, I started seeing alot less of these on drugstore shelves and most recently seen the new L’Oreal HIP Colour Truth Eyeliner Pencils. I do wonder if the gel liners will be replaced by these new pencils at a future date?
Either way if you aren’t a gel liner fan and prefer pencils, these may appeal.
L’Oreal HI Metallic Shadows have a few new shades to collect if you’re a fan. Not sure if these are an limited edition run but check out special displays at your drugstore for the newest shades releasing, I’d say it was around 6 or so new colors. I picked up two of ‘em to review.
