You ever have that moment at the drugstores or anywhere really where you’d just like to try a certain skincare product before you buy it. I’m not talking about a smallish sample! I’m talking about a decent amount of product that might last you a week or even two so you can decide if you really want to indulge in the larger size?
Well apparently Try before you buy sizes are becoming more common at the drugstore! Recently, Covergirl started offering their Tru Magic Perfector Mattifier in a mini size. I honestly thought this was the most amazing thing since that sliced bread. It’s just so great to be able to score a deluxe size of a product and give a test drive before indulging in a massive one that might not work out for me.
More and more L’Oreal is also offering MANY of their popular skincare products in Try Before You Buy Sizes as well! I ran across their newest products recently at CVS offered in sample sizes.
Take a look!
Butter Balm is currently a trending at the drugstore. Everyone from Maybelline to Almay has some sort of liquid balm slash lipgloss hybrid formula at the moment.
So here’s a little this and that beauty featuring Ulta Butter Balm!
Now that I finally reviewed all the shades in the L’Oreal Collection Privee Collection for you I thought I’d share some final thoughts!
As you know the L’Oreal Collection Privee is a selection of high end looking L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipsticks (there’s also a Privee Nail Polish Collection available) that come housed in a matte black casing with gold accents. Each shade is inspired by the skin tone of a past or present L’Oreal model or brand ambassador. The shades a range of non traditional nudes for creating a natural lip look.
The celebrities included in the collection are Eva Longoria, Freida Pinto, Jennifer Lopez, Julianne Moore, Doutzen Kroes, and Liya Kebede. This collection actually got an earlier launch in the UK but it’s now popping up here in drugstores. Unfortunately it is a limited edition launch so if you love these shades you’ll have to be sure to pick them up as soon as see them as they will likely disappear fast.
L’Oreal Doutzen’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is the very last shade I picked up from the limited edition Collection Privee that launched for Spring 2014.
This is actually the very lightest shade in the collection as well.
Each shade of the new Collection Privee Lipsticks is inspired by a L’Oreal model or celebrity face from the past few years. The shades are supposedly flattering for that celebrity/model’s skin tone to create a perfect “nude” shade. These aren’t traditional nude shades which can be very interesting as some of the colors are quite lovely! Doutzen’s Nude is dutch model Doutzen Kroes’s shade.
Each lipstick comes housed in a matte lipstick tube with gold accents and the signature of the model or celebrity who inspired the shade in gold on the packaging.

L’Oreal Freida’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick is another of the new limited edition L’Oreal Lipsticks that launched with the Collection Privee.
Each Collection Privee Lipstick is inspired by a past or present celebrity model and ambassador for L’Oreal and is a flattering shade of nude for that model’s skin tone.
L’Oreal Freida’s Nude Colour Riche Lipstick was inspired by actress and model Freida Pinto. Her shade is a very interesting color that will look fabulous on medium, tan, and caramel tones. Of course, you aren’t limited to those skin tones! If you like the shade I say buy and use it
