Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to an evening with L'Oreal Paris. I will admit, L'Oreal is a brand I tend to skip over being a member of the Gen Y clan, the stuff I remember of L'Oreal is my Nan using it which has had it branded as a "Granny Product".
I wasn't sure what to expect, some heavily moisturising makeup and anti-wrinkle creams mostly. Things that do not work on my aging yet still teenage break out type of skin.
There are three of their new products I need to share with you right now though.
I was excited when they announced their new Youth Code Luminosity range. This is for the 25+ age range and my skin loves it. It's a very light cream, so it's not heavy and greasy leaving my skin oily but it's still nourishing it and keeping it smooth.
I know that not all of my readers fall into my age group, so I have included a picture of both the Revitalift 35+ and Age Perfect 50+ ranges also. Take a look at whichever applies to your age and skin type. I urge you.

Basically it is a pigment corrector, so the white cream changes to match your natural pigmentation working like a light foundation! Yes, hard to believe.
The cream feels like it has real fine sand mixed through it. A bit like a microdermabrasion scrub. You only need a little bit as it spreads out a lot.
When I first put it on I was disappointed as I saw no instant results. I glanced down to pick up my mascara and when I looked up my face definitely looked a lot more evened out and softer. I actually left my makeup with just the Nude Magique, mascara and some lip gloss. Usually I need quite a bit of concealer and then a powder to hide my dark circles.
|Look at all those colours!|
Problem is, I find that my polish jars dry up before they run out at least 95% of the time. I hate spending $15+ for a bottle of nail polish when I know I won't get to use it all and so I try really hard not to buy too many so I will use them up rather than throw mostly full bottles out.
Enter L'Oreal's new Colour Riche Le Vernis.
Look at these tiny bottles and the tiny price to go with! This means I will be able to have quite a lot of colours which have a high probability to running out before they dry up.
Plus I love the application brush.
|I'll take one in every shade please.|

Do you have something that bugs you about makeup?
A huge thank you to Louisa from Brand Meets Blog and L'Oreal Paris Australia for having me along. I had a real wonderful time.
