L’Oreal Paris – Special Offers


Did we all survive the holidays? We’ve got one last one coming up, but I consider New Year’s Eve the day of rest, so to speak. It is a night for dinner, dancing, drinking – whatever it is you want to do. You do it for yourself.

lorealHere’s another little thing for you too. L’Oreal’s Special Offers page, giving you printable coupons and info on newspaper coupons (a bit of a shock). Take advantage and peruse before you hit the stores. You may shave a few dollars off of that coveted product you want – like the highly touted Telescopic explosion mascara!

I Spy: OPI Alice In Wonderland

L to R: Thanks So Muchness; Mad As A Hatter; Absolutely Alice; Off With Her Red

I didn’t have my camera set to a high enough resolution, BUT you can see these are pretty amazing. Both reds could be replaced, but Thanks is gorgeous to the point of looking like racing car paint. Off With Her Red is a creme we have seen a million times before and can be skipped completely . However, Mad As A Hatter and Absolutely Alice are brilliant glitters.

OPI’s Alice In Wonderland releases everywhere in January.

Orly Metal Chic Collection


Get your hands on Orly’s early, limited release: Matte Metallic collection. Dubbed Metal Chic, the 3 new colors consist of a gunmetal (Iron Butterfly), matte gold (Solid Gold) and matte Copper (Glam Rock).

Even though this collection is small, it now brings Orly’s matte count to 6 (see previous post on fall release here). I’m appreciating that Orly is taking the matte trend slowly and producing some very pretty colors. Matte Metallic is flat out gorgeous IRL, with Iron Butterfly suitable for men or women.

If you are in the Milwaukee area, bottles have been spotted in Sally Beauty on the East Side. Orly recommends using the Orly Bonder Basecoat with no topcoat, although I have had very good wear with previous mattes.

If you linger too long, you’ll have to wait until February 2010, when the collection becomes available everywhere Orly is sold. Better not pout!
