TIFF Red Carpet Worthy: L’Oréal Collection Privée by Colour Riche Lipsticks Reviews, Photos, Swatches

The Toronto International Film Festival is in full swing in the city. Like oh my god you guys, Benedict Cumberbatch is breathing the same air as me! But I digress.

L’Oréal Paris is the official beauty sponsor for TIFF 2013. They have released a limited edition, luxurious collection: L’Oréal Collection Privée lipsticks ($10.99) and coordinating nail polishes ($3.99) personalized for L’Oréal’s celebrity spokesmodels.

Canada gets four shades, representing Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Doutzen Kroes and Jennifer Lopez. Each shade is nude, with undertones to complement that of the spokesmodels’.

Freida’s Nude is a mauve nude with silver pearl. This cool shade works well for those with pink undertones to their skin. On myself, I feel that it clashes with my warm  skin tone.

Eva’s Nude is a medium peach with subtle golden pearl. Great shade for warm, medium-to-dark skin tones (hey, that’s me!). This peachy shade is the most opaque of the bunch, so it’s more difficult to pull off if you have fair pink skin.

Doutzen’s Nude is a frosted baby pink. This surprisingly works for my skin tone, even though it is the lightest of the bunch. It applies the most sheer out of the four, and it just lightens my natural lip colour a touch for a more dressed up look.

J Lo’s Nude is a a neutral pink nude. In other words: perfection. I think we have a winner here. Perfectly complementing that infamous J Lo glow, this nude shade has the perfect balance of warm and cool tones to make a universally flattering shade. Love!

Each shade is easy to wear because it’s on the sheer side, but this can also be built up to a medium coverage with 3-4 swipes straight from the tube. The lipsticks have a subtle fruity scent that isn’t noticeable after 10 seconds on the lips. If you want a full coverage nude, these aren’t for you. These pair wonderfully with a smokey eye like I did here, but they also make great everyday nude shades for a “no makeup” makeup look.

Are you heading down to TIFF this week? Make sure you stop by the L’Oréal Paris Beauty Lounge, located at David Pecaut Square (east of Roy Thomson Hall Corner King West and John Street) to get a touch up with a Collection Privée product. :)

Which Collection Privée nude lipstick is your favourite? How would you wear them on the red carpet? How lightheaded will I get if I ever get a glimpse of Benedict Cumberbatch in real life? Very. /swoons

    I’m surprised with how well these all work with a tanned skin tone. I’ve been wondering about picking one up myself but thought Eva’s would be the only colour I could pull off.

    I don’t think we’ll be getting these here. Shame, because the nudes look great!

    Love Eva’s nude, and the packaging! I don’t need any more lipsticks but… I’m tempted!

      The packaging *is* beautiful, Christine. I hope you check them out in stores. ;)

  • Icaria

    These are all so pretty but already Freida & J Lo, the ones I would have liked, are sold out in my area. :( Oh and yes, J Lo does look great on you, definitely a keeper! :)

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca/ Arianne

      Sold out? That’s too bad! I hope you find it soon.

    These all look beautiful on you! I am especially loving J LO’s Nude!!!!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca/ Arianne

      Thanks Alina! J Lo’s Nude is perfect, right?!

  • Lorraine

    Wish this line would be launched in the US. The nail polishes especially are so gorgeous! Not a fan of the nude lip on me, but I would get one, just for the luxe packaging. I like Loreal lippies.

      I hope so, too! Do you have any info Lorraine? I only have info for Canada unfortunately. I know this also launches in the UK.

    The perfect nude is so hard to find. I am in that weird skin tone shade zone… :P They all look great on you, Arianne, you crazy girl.

      Stop it Larie! :P From what I’ve seen J Lo looks awesome on everybody.
