Seems like scented makeup is becoming a thing for the Spring/Summer 2018 season as Maybelline recently launched lemonade-scented palette as well. Considering the two brands belong to the same family, Lancome, it wouldn’t surprise me if we see even more brands starting to do collections like this.
The L’Oreal Paradise Enhcnated Fruit-Scented Collection is pre-booking at amazon.com right now and arrives officially on May 15th. I’ve discussed how hard it is finding drugstore makeup lately due to the fact that much of it launches at Amazon first. If these launch May 15th on Amazon’s website I do wonder at what point when they will officially get to drugstores. The Maybelline Burgundy Bar Palette also got an early launch at Amazon as well as the Maybelline Lemonade Crazy Palette I was discussing above. I suspect that we won’t see any of these in stores until June at least. Don’t get me wrong, I’m above all else an avid online shopper but I do really like heading into the drugstore to see what’s new and I’m all disappointed that I can’t find very much at all anymore at some of my favorite stores like Harmons.
None the less, I did order this collection from Amazon and I’m curious to see how the formula turns out. The collection is an obvious nod to Too Faced’s obsession with peaches but the shades seem a little lighter in the eyeshadow palette in comparison. Hopefully the blushes turn out lovely since I wasn’t terribly impressed with the Too Faced Peach My Cheeks Melting Powder Blush.
L’Oreal Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Blush is available in four warm shade selections for $10.99 each. The shade range go from subtle peach to warmer apricots and pops of coral and pink. Each blush is infused with a fruit scent which I imagine might be peachy we’ll have to wait and see!
Along with the blushes there’s a new L’Oreal Colour Riche Paradise Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette ($11.99) that’s also scented and includes 12 shades with a guide to create four different looks on the back of the palettes. I hope I’m wrong about this but the shades do appear more lighter and subtle than those we’ve seen from Too Faced. I’m hoping for richer peachier shades but these look a bit softer.
I dunno about you but L’Oreal Paradise Enchanted Fruit-Scented Collection has me excited. I hope it surprises me with a great formula.
