L'oreal Project Runway Collection...
Hey everyone! I've received a few tweets about L'oreal's new Project Runway collection, and while I only have a few products from the line- I thought I'd share my thoughts on what I picked up! :) I found the display at my local Walgreens, and all of the products have a bird theme... kind of unusual, but whatever! The collection includes various lipsticks, blushes, nail polishes, and eyeshadow quads (there were none left that I was especially interested in, so I didn't pick up the shadow. The quality of L'oreal quads has a history of being kind of hit or miss with me).
Everything I got happens to come from the "Sultry Raven" collection. The lipstick is Sultry Raven's Pout, the blush is Sultry Raven's Blush, and the polish is Raven's Strength. The lipstick is a beautiful creamy pinky-nude, and the blush looks lighter in person than it does in the picture... but it's a very soft shimmery pink. I actually wore it on top of another blush in the picture below, since it just seemed too light worn alone... but I think it is pretty as a cheekbone highlight. And the polish is sort of a pearly black. I had it on a couple weeks ago & I think it's a nice alternative to just a flat black.
These products are a bit pricey, but I got the lipstick and blush as part of a Buy One, Get One Half-Off deal. I wouldn't repurchase the blush (not that I'd have the opportunity, since this stuff is limited edition), but the lipstick is really pretty! :) It's creamy, and has the same feel as the other Colour Riche lipsticks L'oreal sells. As you can see- with no gloss on top, it has a smooth, somewhat shiny appearance on the lips. From the moment I looked at it in the store, I felt like it was very similar to one of my favorite shades from L'oreal's permanent line called Fairest Nude. Sure enough, they are practically the same in finish and color. Sultry Raven's Pout might have the slightest bit more pink, but it's hardly something anyone could identify. So if you're interested in that limited edition lipstick but can't find it- Fairest Nude is a dupe! :)
