L'oreal Spring 2013 launches

Hello my gorgeous beauty stalkers!!! As I had mentioned in a past post, there are some fabulous launches happening at your local drugstore in the beauty section. Brands are launching their fabulous new products, formulas and color ranges in various areas of their lines. With everything from concealer to hair, you are sure to find something new. With that I mind, I bring you to L'oreal Paris and their new launches that are truly amazing. When covering the looks done at the Golden Globes this year, one of the most talked about was Jennifer Lopez's flawless look of luminous skin and healthy looking hair.

Her entire look was done by L'oreal Paris. Some of the products used are actually going to be mentioned in this post as one of the new launches. So without further delay, let's see what's new:

Everstrong Sulfate Free Thickening Collection

 This collection of thickening shampoo, conditioner and scalp treatment have an impeccable formulation that feels amazing on the hair. Infused with mint and juniper fragrance, it is light and fresh and leaves hair nourished and gorgeous!

L'oreal Paris Excellence Cream 
Hair Color with triple protection and nourishing ingredients leave hair vibrant and hydrated with the perfect shine. They are also available in new Richesse intense shades that are bold and beautiful.

Ideal Clean and Moisture Collection

A skincare collection catering to every skin type that is formulated with a back to basics approach to leaving skin clean and hydrated with minimal chemicals to be gentle on the skin. It is also formulated to work for teens as well. I can honestly say that the moisturizers feel light and clean on the skin and the wipes are great in taking off all traces of makeup and dirt on the skin without leaving it dry or tight. I am really loving this skincare line. :)

Colour Caresse Shine Stain

 This moisturizing, water based formula is hydrating on the lips with long lasting color. It has a beautiful gloss that looks and feels amazing. It stains the lips just right for that flush that lasts all day! Comparable to the YSL glossy stains, these are amazing and come in a variety of shades! Must have product. :)

L'oreal Visible Lift Blush
 This was the blush used on Jlo for the Globes. It is a somewhat cream to powder blush that is luminous on the skin and feels amazing. It is one of the most advanced anti-aging makeup and is now expanding with this range of lovely blushes. Infused with brightening minerals that reawaken the skin, it illuminates and hydrates all in one. Truly a fabulous must try blush. 

L'oreal True Match Blendable Crayon Concealer

 True Match is already one of the best collections in the L'oreal line. This concealer crayon is one of the creamiest products I have tried and one I am most excited about. It blends flawlessly on the skin and gives the under eye area the perfect amount of product. A little goes a long way with this creaseless long lasting formula. I have tried all types of correctors, concealers and brighteners and this is honestly becoming a holy grail product for me. It's available in a ton of shades just like the foundation and powder.

L'oreal Telescopic shocking extensions mascara

A new addition to the already popular telescopic line, this mascara is flawless in delivering volume and amazing length. It doesn't flake or smudge and the lash hugging brush is phenomenal in delivering intense lashes that are shocking. 

L'oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother

One of the products used on Jlo's flawless look for the Globes. It is the finishing product in your skincare routine meant to blur imperfections in the skin in 30 seconds of application. It smoothes the skin to allow for better makeup application. It also has SPF 30 and light diffusing properties that make for a silky smooth look. This is also set to be another Holy Grail product.

L'oreal Voluminous Power Volume 24hr Black Smoke Mascara

 The newest addition in the Voluminous line adds Black Smoke offering gorgeous length in and intense black. The perfect addition to a smokey eye, it gives lashes that long, luxurious length that is a statement. It is long lasting and doesn't flake or smudge. Great formula!

L'oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quads

The newest palettes to be launched in the Colour Riche eyeshadow line allow for bold shades, buttery shadows and amazing color payoff. The texture is silky and soft while gliding beautifully on the lid. Plus they come in an extensive ranges of combos that go from neutral to brights.

L'oreal Colour Riche Nail Color Spring 2013 Shades

The same amazing Colour Riche formula in new brights for spring. Truly gorgeous shades that are bound to impact!

L'oreal Colour Riche Nail Lingerie

 With the latest in nail trends being the all so popular nail wraps, L'oreal brings us these gorgeous Nail Lingerie wraps. They can be worn on plain nails or over a shade for accent, they have everything from lace, sparkles and textures to dress up your manicure. They come in a variety of styles and look so pretty. You must try these... :)

So this is just a sneak peek into all that is amazing and launching from one of my all time favorite brands.
