Beauty News: Lea Michele is the L’Oreal Paris NEW Ambassador

L’Oréal Paris is pleased to announce award-winning actress Lea Michele as the brand’s newest ambassador. Lea’s talent took her from Broadway to the big screen where she stole the hearts of Americans on Glee as a show stopping soprano Rachel Berry.

“Growing up on stage, I was introduced to makeup at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L’Oréal Paris iconic lipstick –it was instant glamour and I’ve been hooked ever since!  I’ve been a fan of L’Oréal Paris’ products for years, but it wasn’t until I was a bit older that I fully understood the brand’s message of a woman’s worth, which I wholeheartedly agree with. L’Oréal Paris encourages women to embrace their beauty and celebrate their self-worth.  I feel very honored to be working with L’Oreal Paris to help spread that message to young women” says Lea Michele.

Lea is perhaps best known for her role in the critically-acclaimed, Fox TV television series Glee, which returned this month for its fourth season. Throughout her role as Rachel, Lea has received a People’s Choice Award, a Teen Choice Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. She has also been honored with an Emmy Award nomination and two Golden Globe nominations.

 In addition to her role on Glee, Lea has performed solo concerts to sold-out crowds in New York and Los Angeles and has lent her vocal talents to two feature films. In 2011, Lea starred in the romantic comedy New Year's Eve and in 2013, Lea will star in Summertime Entertainment's animated 3D film Dorothy of Oz, providing vocals on several original numbers. Lea’s talents span the entertainment industry, but when she is not performing she dedicates her time to supporting causes close to her heart.   

Today, Lea joins the L’Oréal Paris Spokespersons family, including Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé Knowles, Julianna Margulies, Eva Longoria, Andie MacDowell, Freida Pinto and Aimée Mullins, among others. Lea Michele will debut in TV and print advertising campaigns for the leading global beauty brand beginning in the United States in early 2013.

Review :L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil Milk for fine hair

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil Milk is ideal for fine hair, it's protein-rich milk spray strengthens and reinforces hair. It is made from Royalatin (derived from Royal Jelly, rich in antioxidant and B complex vitamins) and Passiflora Oil (rich in Vit C, Calcium and Phosphorous).

Comes with a spray dispenser

Texture : White Milky

Scent : Pleasant flowery scent

Tips to use & how it works:
Post Shampoo Detangler : Added moisture for smooth detangling

Pre-Blow Dry Condition : Delivers shine, softness and anti-frizz protection

Finishing Spritz : Added softness improves the appearance of split end

Review of L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil Milk: I started trying out this and the first thing I noticed is the lovely scent once I sprayed on my hair... it's so nice and that makes me keep spraying ! It feels extremely light on my hair like as if nothing has been applied. As much as I like the scent, I don't think it works well to de-tangle my hair after I towel dried my hair or de-frizz it after I blow dry. However the spray dispenser is quite useful and easy to use especially right after I blow dry my permed hair, for keeping my permed hair shape in place while providing a little bit moisture kick on it as a final touch up. And if you have fine & quite healthy hair, you might want to try this to maintain your hair condition! I still prefer the Rich Oil formula (click here to read review) which nourish my dry & damaged hair.

L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil - Milk is selling at RM75 for 125ml at L'oreal authorised hair salons.

p/s: I have gave this to my friend Amelia to try and will get her reviews on this too and add on if necessary

My Royal Treatment by L'oreal Professionnel at Shawn Cutler

 A while ago, I was invited by the kind people in L'oreal to enjoy the Royal Treatment by L'oreal Professionnel at Shawn Cutler. And I make an appointment to do it in the afternoon just before the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards 2011 night , so that I walked out from the salon like a QUEEN for the night!

I went there around noon on and seems like their business is doing quite well.

I was in love with their interior design and decoration.
So classy !

Speaking of the Royal Treatment, it consists of the new L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia range (which was released in Oct 2011) and Mythic Oil

L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia range is a hydrating & reconstructing range for dry hair made from the rare Hawaii Macadamia Nut Oil.

I also love the fact that L'oreal Serie Nature because it is 100% natural
Generally sulfate are the cleansing agents used in shampoos were said to pose a threat in increasing female cancers such as breast cancer and so if I have a choice I will not use stuffs that have sulfate. And here in the Riche Macadamia shampoo, the sulfates were replaced by gentler cleansing agents of plant origin: sodium methyl cocoyl taurate and sodium lauroyl glutamate. These cleaning agent also can create a rich foam and gently cleanse the hair while respecting the hair’s lipidic film. This goes the same for paraben & silicon.

Solomon my hair stylist who was pampering me that day started shampooing my hair with L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia shampoo. He then shared tips that for best result of doing home treatment at home with L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia mask would be wrapping the hair with hot towel after applying the mask. So it allows better absorption of the nutriens.

My thought on L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia shampoo and mask
I like how my hair feel light after shampooing and smell so goof from the macadamia goodness. And I was quite surprise that even after applying L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia mask, my hair still feel light eventhough I can feel that my hair smoother and easy to comb through.

After the mask, Solomon applied a pump of L'oreal Professional Mythic Oil on towel drying hair for 2 minutes before blow dry to protect hair cuticle from the heat.

Ways how to do it

Solomon decided to curl my hair and doll me up a bit for the grand night. After he was done, he applied another drop of Mythic Oil for finishing, to give a shine and enhance layering of the hair.

The final result of my royal treatment after 2 hours! Love the sexy curls and my hair was actually bouncy and light even after applying 2 pumps of Mystic Oil. I was really impressed!

My Thoughts on Mythic Oil

Suprisingly this hair oil is really light and absorb really well. I felt as if my hair does not have anything on, as it is not oily at all! Made from the extract of Avacado & Grape seed oil it deeply nourish my hair, provide me the shine and give anti-frizz protection all day long!

Me & Solomon

Me & Shawn aka the Boss of the salon :)

It was great that I gotta to bring home all the 3 products to use at home and now I can confirm that I could also achieve salon result by using this affordable products at home! Super loving it especially the Mythic Oil !

Prices of the above products
L'Oreal Professionel Serie Nature Macadamia shampoo 250ml - RM57

Review : L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 6H Lipgloss

Few months back L’Oréal Paris has introduced an improved formula for its popular Glam Shine 6H , making it even better to meet your needs for that perfect lipgloss.

This new L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 6H formula has:
Rubix Cube Polymer- This is the existing polymer for that gives these lipglosses the intense and long-lasting effect you adore.

Synamer Polymer -New ingredient! Which gives it that controlled glossy film on lips as well as a comfortable sensation.

In conclusion , this L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 6H promises to give Extra comfort, Light and non-sticky formula , Six hours wear and hold, All-day shine for that just-applied look and making touch-ups unnecessary!

So let's see how it works on me :)

Colour tested is L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 6H in Strawberry Mix colour

Texture : Not very sticky

Scent : sweet caramel fragrance , making me feel hungry!

Effect : With just one swipe, it gives me a very even, vibrant and shinny finishing. It also has this small shinny gold sparkles which gives me a luxurious feeling.

Review: I swipe one layer of L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 6H over my lips and found that its sufficient to give me the quite a good & even coverage of colour & shinning-ness on my lips that I could actually forgo my lipstick for once a while (although you cant see this clearly in the above pic). I also like the fact that it comes with very very fine sparkles that are quite long lasting in my lips even after few good hours although the colour are faded by a little bit by then. As it is not very sticky & drying, its definitely very comfortable to use on my lips.

L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine 6H can be found at all L’Oréal Paris counters nationwide for only RM35.90.

Review : L'oreal Paris Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation SPF30 PA+++

L’oreal Revitalif range was launched back in 2007. It consists of complete skincare range and today they launched L'oreal Paris Revitalif Duo Powder Foundation SPF30 PA+++ for anti-ageing protection in a makeup form. Comes with a plastic red packaging which give it a touch of luxurious and exclusivity feeling rather than the boring usual white, silver or black cover.

It was stated that this Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation which is ultra gentle in texture but tough on ageing will give your skin total anti-ageing care with its potent formula that works not only to combat ageing signs but to also give your complexion instant youth. It claimed that fine lines will be smoothed, wrinkles will be reduced and features will be illuminated, giving you a fresh and vibrant complexion.

This Revitalift duo powder foundation comes with a soft sponge! There are 2 steps to apply this

Step 1
Ultra-gentle powder foundation:
Charged with Adenosine, it smoothen fine lines and wrinkles with an instant lifting effect. With light, short strokes, apply in downward direction to even out under eyes and blend out unevenness.

Step 2
Defining highlighter: Ivory cream highlighter provides a luminous and lifted complexion for up to 8 hours. With corner of sponge, lightly pad the ivory cream highlighter on outer cheekbones, nosebridge and above eyebrow arches.

I read that the secret behind this Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation is Adenosine, an ingredient that is packed with anti-ageing properties, to focus on instantly smoothening fine lines and wrinkles, leaving behind a natural-looking complexion all day long. With Adenosine, Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation helps re-establish skin’s barrier, keeping it plump and firm. Because of its Myorelaxant property, Adenosine works almost in a Botox-like effect, except that it is more natural and gentle on skin. Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation’s ultra-fine powder texture helps penetrate Adenosine deep into our skin

My Review : I found that the powder foundation texture was surprisingly very fine and smooth. Pores looked less visible and laughing line look less obviously and most importantly it does not look cakey on my skin! Apart from that, this foundation give quite a good coverage as it is able to even up skin tone and lightening the pigmentation.

And I like the highlighter which was included in this compact as it is much more convenient to use and I use it sparingly as I do not want to look too fair on the highlighted areas. And the SPH30++ formula came as a bonus to me (when I forgot to put on my sunblock) as I would still apply sunblock whether or not I am putting on makeup.

I would think this is a good buy from drugstore/pharmacy considering it is quite a good foundation considering the price.

L'oreal Paris Revitalift Duo Powder Foundation SPF30 PA+++ (7.5g) which comes in 10 shades is available at all L’Oréal Paris counters nationwide. Priced at RM69.90.

Review : L'oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara

L'oreal first introduced its double extension mascara (i.e Ultra-Lengthening Double Extension Mascara) back in 2003 which not only lengthens our lashes by 60% but strengthen them as well. Today L'oreal Paris reformulate it and introduced a mascara that gave waterproof, ultra-lengthening, double extension mascara that comes in carbon black color. It promises to give more than 70% more length and helps to re-energises lash renewal.

This mascara contains not only nourishing Pro-Vitamin B5, Pro-peptide, it also contains Arginine (helps in the healthy grow of hair and lashes) and Madecassoside (helps with the lifespan of our lashes) which promises to reduce lash loss.

One the left side, the cap that comes in gold color is base mascara that is enriched with the exclusive L'oreal Renewal Lash Serum made up of a high tech re-activating formula.

The serum base mascara comes in white color.

Note : Because it comes in white color, it cannot be wear it alone to go out unless you going to put on it and went to bed. And the white base mascara color disappeared immediately after I put on black mascara coating.

On the right hand side, the blue color cap of the mascara is the Ultra Lengtening mascara in Black.

The formulation that comes in cream-based waxes will give a smooth texture and easy application

The black mascara comes with fine fibers. It promises to give ultra-lengthening effects that lashes will appear 80% longer instantly and designed specially for sensitive eyes and contact-lens wearer. And this mascara has waterproof and smudge proof formula.

Let's get down with the picture - a more practical comparison

I applied 2-3 coat of the black mascara , after 1 layer of mascara base.I like the fact that the fiber mascara is fine and make my eyes looks natural. And best of all it did not flake or went into the eyes after whole day application.

Although the expensive Tsuya tsuya Angel Eyes mascara might give a better effect in term of lengthening with their fiber but it flakes and went into my eyes sometimes and cause irritation.

Result : I can see significant lengthening of my lashes and slight volumizing effect on my lashes

As the fiber on the mascara are lightweight, it holds up my curled eyelashes quite nicely.

Comparison picture : Right eyes I applied L'oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara

Looked at how long my lashes are being enhanced.

Like the slogan for this mascara advert says :

Don't limit your lashes !

This mascara fiber on my lashes are easily being removed with usual Biore Cleansing Oil-in-Cotton wipes compared to the Max Factor's Fake Lash Effect mascara which is a bit difficult to be removed.

I read that for better results, we should incorporate the Renewal Lash Serum into our daily routine. Use in the morning to protect lashes from external aggressions and at night to boost lash growth and regeneration. However I just started using this , so I am not sure if this serum mascara will help in boosting up lash growth. But what I see is that, the serum base mascara helps to holds my curled lashes properly and allow the black mascara on my lashes to last longer.

Pros : Significant lengthening effect, light weight and fine fibers that looks natural and easy to be removed with makeup remover, waterproof and smudge proof mascara.

Cons : Not much of volumizing effect (after all this is a ultra-lengthening mascara)

This L'oreal Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara is available at all L’Oréal Paris cosmetic counters nationwide. The Double Extension Renewal Serum Mascara is priced at RM 49.90/each.

Aimee Mullins is the new Global Ambassador for L’Oréal Paris

Aimee Mullins is the the new global spokesperson for L’Oréal Paris which already includes Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé Knowles, Rachel Weisz, Gwen Stefani, Gerard Butler, Freida Pinto, Diane Kruger, Aishwarya Rai and Patrick Dempsey

Aimee first received worldwide media attention as an athlete. Born without fibulae in both legs, Aimee's medical prognosis was bleak; she would never walk and indeed would spend the rest of her life using a wheelchair. In an attempt for an outside chance at independent mobility, doctors amputated both her legs below the knee on her first birthday. The decision paid off. By age two, she had learned to walk on prosthetic legs, and spent her childhood doing the usual athletic activities of her peers: swimming, biking, softball, soccer, and skiing, always alongside "ablebodied" kids. Despite this challenge, today at the age of 34 she is a top-tier athlete, a fascinating model and a talented actress.

“Aimee Mullins is a truly remarkable woman. An accomplished athlete, muse, fashion model and
talented actress, yet she is so much more: a smart, confident, curious woman who will wholly
represent our philosophy, ‘Because You’re Worth It.’ We are proud to welcome her to the L’Oréal Paris family,” says Karen T. Fondu, President, L’Oréal Paris USA.

I must say she is truly an extraordinary woman. She is beautiful, charismatic, genuine and generous, with a one-of-a-kind personality and an enthusiastic, positive vision of beauty that she loves sharing with the world

In Aimee's own word, “The L’Oréal Paris icons are among the most beautiful women in the world. I am very honoured to be joining this family.The “Because I’m worth it” tagline means a lot to me. Beauty is not skin-deep; it can be a means of self-affirmation, a true indicator of personality and confidence".

Aimee has been featured in numerous prestigious magazines all over the world such as Vogue,
Harper’s Bazaar, W, Speorts Illustrated, Life, Glamour and Elle, and appears regularly on TV programmes and at conferences to share her experience with innovation, design, and her vision of beauty.

She will represent Loreal make-up products in her first upcoming campaign. So girls keep an eyes on her !

Review : L'oreal Colour Riche Serum Infused in Tropical Coral

Is this what you looking for in a lipstick ?

L'oreal Colour Riche Serum Infused leave your lips with lasting hydration, finishes off with an ultra-glam shine, and of course give you fabulous rich color that goes the mile.

Now L'oreal Paris unveils its new and improved formula for Colour Riche Serum Infused - richer, creamier and more moisturizing.

It is said to be effective because of its winning formula, one that is rich with nourishing ingredients such as the ultra-hydrating Omega 3 and conditioning Vitamin E. And the extra boost that they added in to this lipstick is the superbly moisturising Argan Oil which is known for its nutritive properly which is produced from the kernels of the Argan Tree (one of the most rare oils in the world). It is recognised by generations for women for essential nourishment and protection. Traditionally know as "liquid gold" because it has been used to cure enzema, acne treatment, prevent scars, soothe chicken pox and as moisturiser for baby!

Texture : With one swipe the color easily show, the color is somehow intense and matte without any shimmering effect. Texture is smooth when I applied on my palm.

I was given #444 Tropical Coral to try

Just with 1-2 swipe , the intensity of the color showed on my lips. It managed to cover my uneven skintone on my lips nicely and the color is quite long lasting.

Although it is stated that it's serum infused, i feel somehow it's not as moisturise as I expected. Maybe my expectation is too high.

With flash on

My whole looks with L'oreal Colour Riche Serum Infused in Tropical Coral.

Pros : Color is intense, smooth texture, long lasting, price reasonable.

Cons : Not as moisturise as expected

L'oreal Colour Riche Serum Infused Lipstick which comes in 16 shades is selling at all Loreal counters nationwide for only RM33.90 each.

Note : The above product is provided by L'oreal Malaysia for review purposes in this blog.
