TIFF: L'Oréal Paris Collection Privée by Colour Riche

Do you smell it? The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is in the air.
Right now Toronto is full of celebrities, movies and great parties!

This TIFF L'Oréal Paris has launched their Collection Privée by Colour Riche.
This collection features four nail polishes ($3.99) with corresponding lipsticks ($10.99). 
Each set is inspired by lovely ladies such as Jennifer Lopez, Doutzen Kroes, Freida Pinto and Eva Longoria.

I will admit these colours are not the ideal nudes for my skin tone (that I am comfortable wearing).
 They would definitely suit someone who is light to medium tone in my opinion.

Now these are something I can get into! 
Great formula and consistency. The perfect neutral palette of Fall tones.
Freida is my favourite!

What do you think of  L'Oréal Paris Collection Privée by Colour Riche?

Is it me or have you seen a lot of brands coming out with new lip products within the past 6 months! L'oreal Colour Caresse by Colour Riche was one of my favourite products of 2012!

I was asked on twitter if I could swatch some of the other colours.
Let me know which one is your favourite!
Suggested retail for each lipstick is around $12.99. Look out for my Color Riche Caresse Shine Stain Lip Colors swatches later this month.

L'Oreal Paris and TIFF Festival

A few weeks ago, L'Oreal held a cocktail party to celebrate the opening of TIFF. A few Canadian Beauty Bloggers and I had the opportunity to attend. The venue was the Panorama Lounge in the Manulife Centre. Definitely a place that you should attend if you have the chance. 
The view there is gorgeous!

We were joined by a special guest Johnny Lavoy. 
He's the Consulting Hair Artist for L'Oreal Paris and Lead Hair Stylist on Project Runway 10.
Honestly, he's one of the funniest people ever! I'll get more into that after.
The event highlighted red carpet looks and the upcoming trends in hair.

After the presentation was done, I visited the "Get the Look" stations featuring celebrities with L'oreal hair and beauty products. Each look incorporated one of the new hair products coming out in Fall. 
Frieda's look suggested using the Hair Expertise Nutrisleek Precious Oil. 
Perfect product to add to your hair regimen. Especially if you use a lot of heat on your tresses. 

I had to share this picture because it's hilarious! 
Johnny and I were going to take a picture but we couldn't decide who should be on the left. Since we both like taking pictures on the left side, he decided that we should do a prom picture.
This totally caught me off guard and I started to laugh really hard.. this picture of taken in the process.

Thanks L'oreal for the invite!

Garnier Nutrisse Mousse- Nurishing Color Foam (Guest Post)

I was recently sent the new Garnier Nutrisse Mousse to try out.
I don't dye my hair so I ventured out into the bloggersphere to find a candidate.
 Check out Anna's review on the Nurishing Color Foam.
This coloring foam is enriched with triple fruit oils: avocado, olive, and shea.
It's said to nourish while coloring and I really believe that, keep reading!

It's a no stress/no mess application process and extremely easy to use.

This coloring kit includes:
a liquid to foam developer (A)
a liquid to foam Colorant (B)
Avocado, Olive & Shea Oil Conditioner (C)
a Foaming Pump (D)
and PVC-free gloves (E)

I was very surprised at how easy the foam is to use!
I like the pump better than the brush and mixing bowl application, because it's less messy and easier to handle.
The other benefit is that in 25 short minutes, you have fully colored hair. Just a couple of weeks ago, I was at the salon for 3hrs coloring and cutting my hair! I sat under the blower for 45 minutes!!

Another pro about the Garnier Nutrisse Mousse is that it doesn't stain your skin! You should have seen my mothers face during the application process, brown foam was everywhere (my fault, of course)! But it came off with such ease. I didn't need to use baby oil, or makeup remover, or any other product. The color came off just with water!

I really love the smell of the conditioner, it's so delicious and left my mothers rather dry hair quite soft and silky. As I was rinsing my moms hair of the color, I could feel a difference in the texture of her hair. As far as I'm concerned, this coloring foam really nourishes the hair.
All in all, this was a very good experience. Mom isn't one to dye her hair at home either, but now she's asking me to use this foam on her roots when the time comes. We'll see, Mom!

So beauties, tell me! Do you use at home box coloring? I'd love to hear stories, the good and the bad!
