It’s a happy launch day today! The L’Oréal Paris La Vie en Rose 2016 Collection Exclusive lands on counter today. Right now. Along with six lipsticks, it includes six matching, limited-edition nail polishes.
The newest L'Oréal Paris Collection Exclusive range of celebrity-ambassador shades is all about pink, as you can see. Each pink colour is associated with a specific L'Oréal Paris beauty: Eva Longoria's is soft Peach Pink; Julianne Moore's is bright Nude Pink; Liya Kebede's is vivid Grenadian Pink; Blake Lively's is pale Orangey Pink; Doutzen Kroes' is Fuchsia Pink; and Jennifer Lopez's is deep Magenta Pink.
According to the press sheet, the formula is "infused with micro-fragments of mother-of-pearl" and is made with "velvety pigments." Let's look.

L’Oreal Paris Julianne’s Pink 701 – La Vie en Rose Collection 2016 (above).
L’Oreal Paris Eva’s Pink 703 – La Vie en Rose Collection 2016 (above).
There are a couple of things you should know about this collection. The formulas kick ass and the shades are varied enough in their pinkness that I think you can justify buying not just one, but all.
L’Oreal Paris Jennifer’s Pink 705 – La Vie en Rose Collection 2016 (above). Watch your cuticles with this one when you remove it, k?
L’Oreal Paris Doutzen’s Pink 707 – La Vie en Rose Collection 2016 (above).
Each shade went on to opaque in two painless coats. The coverage, level and shine for all of 'em is exceptional. When I say stuff like that, you know I mean it, right?
L’Oreal Paris Liya’s Pink 709 – La Vie en Rose Collection 2016 (above). I must also mention (thanks for the reminder, Cat!) that the front labels on the bottles somewhat obscure the shades. If you look at the bottle sides, you get a much more accurate picture of what the shade really looks like. It must have something to do with the label goo. When you go to the store, turn the bottle and look at it from the sides to get an accurate read on colour.
L’Oreal Paris Blake’s Pink 711 – La Vie en Rose Collection 2016 (above).
It’s not often I find love for entire collections but all six bottles from the L’Oréal Paris La Vie en Rose nail polish collection have me all kinds of #GrabbyHands. J’Lo’s pink is now my pink. So is Blake’s, Doutzen’s, Julianne’s…. well, you get the idea.
The L’Oréal Paris La Vie en Rose limited-edition nail polishes are $7.50 CAd each and $5.99 USd at drugstores now.
Which ones you gonna get? All? Cuz' you should get all.
