L’Oreal Paris Red Carpet Styles! Looks like I’m the last person to post about this!

 

No flashy title needed because the pictures are going to speak volumes.   I’m all kinds of excited for what L’Oreal Paris has up their sleeves!   I’ll also post some photos from the Red Carpet Styles Event I attended in early September.  Take a peek:

Loreal’s  1st Self Adjusting BB Cream cream in Canada, Magic Skin Beautifier, with Beautifying Beads that instantly self-adjust to your perfect shade for a flawless nude look. It delivers multiple beautifying actions: hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects. 

Experience 5 complexion-perfecting benefits in one simple step. The Youth Code™ BB Cream Illuminator instantly evens, illuminates, perfects, moisturizes and protects skin. In one week, tone and texture are improved and skin is healthier looking. Contains broad-spectrum SPF 15. Available in 2 shades.

Make way for the new generation of sensual colour – Colour Caresse by Colour Riche in 12 luminous shades. Formulated with 50% less wax than traditional lipstick, the revolutionary Lightfeel System delivers a feather-light finish that’s never sticky or heavy. No one caresses your lips like this.

The future of eye shadow is here! La Couleur Infallible reinvents eye shadow with enhanced color intensity, a new velvety feel, and 24 hour long-lasting hold.

This lightweight cream helps transform the look of aging skin by working both the skin’s surface and the upper layers of the skin to repair, re-densify and re-firm the look of skin.

Elnett Satin Lumiere Hairspray delivers brilliant shine with a new ultra strong hold formula.  Loreal’s patented light micro-reflectors create an invisible veil at the surface of the hair to capture the surrounding light.

Hair Expertise Nutri-Sleek Precious Oils nourishes the hair fiber and helps to protect it against daily aggressors such as over-washing and over-styling with heat appliances. 

Superior Preference’s new packaging features a new couture look along with consumer-friendly packaging and easy-to-follow instructions for haircolor!
