L'Oreal Collaborates with Project Runway for Its Fall Color Story.

It seems like it has been years since L'Oreal has put out anything really good in terms of a color story. I have always been a huge fan of L'Oreal as a drug store line. They had good quality and the price point was great. You should see the box of Colour Riche lipsticks I own, some of which are 10 years old and are STILL not rancid! This fall L'Oreal collaborated with Project Runway to come out with a huge color story all based around a bird theme. The last time they did a bird theme was about 13 years ago at holiday time with bright loose pigments, eyeliners and nail polish. I wish they had done that this time around too! I didn't buy everything in the collections and I wasn't able to take pictures of everything but I have some good impressions.

Cockatoo Quad and Blush

The first story is about a Cockatoo. They eye quad is called Charming Cockatoo's Gaze. It has a matte pink/peach, shimmery pinky-peach, shimmery blue gray and a matte charcoal. The blush that goes with it is a lovely shimmery peach. I also purchased the lipstick, which is a dark matte chocolate. They had nail colors and an eyeliner that went with each color story but I didn't purchase any of those from any of the stories.
Raven Quad and Blush

The next color story is about a Raven. The eye quad is called Sultry Raven's Gaze. It has a beautiful shimmery silver, slightly shimmery charcoal, a medium purple and a shimmery black. The blush that goes with it is a shimmery pink. Also, the lipstick is a medium pink nude tone.

Owl Quad and Blush
Finally, the other bird they used is an Owl. The last quad is called Watchful Owl's Gaze. It has three varying shades of shimmery gold and a shimmery khaki tone. The blush that goes with this story is a deep shimmery peach tone. I didn't purchase the lipstick that goes with this, only because they didn't have any left!

Charming Cockatoo's Pout

Raven's Sultry Pout
Revlon's Night Sky

For today's look I used the Cockatoo's Gaze quad. I used the shimmery blue in the crease. Then I took the matte charcoal and placed it along the outside of my lid and along the lower lash line. I used the matte pink on the lid and the shimmery peach under the brow. The eye looked kind of blah, so I decided to use a shimmery black shadow from Revlon that I have been wanting to use. It is called Night Sky and is their new Diamond Lust formula. I added it where I had put the matte black charcoal and it looked gorgeous there. I then added the silver from the Raven's Gaze quad under the brow. That made it look even better. So I put the shimmery peach from the Cockatoo quad on the lid now. I used Maybelline's Falsies Volume Express mascara in Black. For blush I used the Sultry Raven's Blush and the Sultry Raven's Pout lipstick. I think the look turned out very nice. I did notice a lot of fallout from the lighter shimmery shadows, I had to clean that up.

I am happy with the L'Oreal items. There aren't any surprises. I didn't really expect any. I am glad the price points aren't rising too much. I am glad that they decided to put out color stories again. I get tired of the same old thing. We all like to see new and different stuff every month or two. I bought these items at Rite-Aid, so I am assuming most of the other stores will have them soon. And they usually run their Buy one Get one 50% off discounts every other week. Hope you like my look!

I went to Ulta this afternoon and saw that there was another color story associated with this whole shebang! Yippee!!!! :) And it has gorgeous bright colors. The eye quad is called Audacious Amazon's Gaze. The four colors in it are: bright lime green, bright cantaloupe, dark shimmery peachy-orange and bright shimmery purple. The blush, Audacious Amazon's Blush, is a mid-tone bronzy peach. I didn't purchase the lipstick. It was too fuschia for my taste. I did get a nail color that is a gorgeous shimmery golden shower, called Amazon's Flash. All L'Oreal is 40% right now!!!!!!!!
