The suite was set-up so that we could not just view the products but also try out their make-up and nail lacquers. Jay, our nail professional at the L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Nail Bar, worked his magic by selecting two fun shades for my nails. He chose “Tweet Me” and “Jet Set to Paris” which matched my outfit perfectly.
That is what I love about nail lacquers, you can turn your digits into accessories that match your outfits!
Here is a tip for those of you finding some colors appear too shear on your nails. In order to get the exact shade you see in the bottle, make sure you put a white base (Jay used L’Oreal’s “I Will”). It may seem silly to some but quite a few people had no idea this was the way to achieve the perfect match!
When it came time to sit in the make-up chair, I was excited to try out L’Oreal’s Infallible Eye Shadow since my girlfriend said it lasts all day. Is there really, truly an eye shadow in existence that you don’t need to re-apply after being out in the Miami heat that maintains its rich color?
Oh yes……and according to the packaging, it lasts for 24 hours!
After we got all glammed up, the team took us to Katsuya where we received a very special recorded message from one of Mexico’s most prominent media personalities and L’Oreal’s newest spokesperson Martha Debayle! Sadly she couldn’t join us due to her busy work schedule, but we were all excited to hear that such a strong Latina had been signed on to represent the brand.
The tv/radio personality/entrepreneur is a great example to women of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds! Look for her in ads for the Excellence Crème Pro-Keratine Hair Color in September.
L’Oreal also gave us a goody bag with many of the products we saw on display in the suite to try out at home. Watch out for our reviews in the near future! Don’t forget to follow all the latest from L’Oreal Paris on Twitter and Facebook.
