L'Oreal L'Or Electric Collection

Came across the L'Oreal L'Or Electric collection yesterday in France. This is a limited edition collection done to coincide with the Cannes film festival. L'Oreal is the official Makeup Artist for Cannes.

The version released in France is a smaller collection than what is available on FeelUnique.com. There were only two Color Infallibles in #37 Metallic Lilac (right) and #40 Cosmic Black (left). These didn't swatch well, coming off patchy and dry but I'm not sure if that is because the testers were not capped.

Two nailpolishes in coral pink and bright lime.

The Color Riche lipsticks in #406 Neonic Orange and #407 Metallic Coral impressed me with their good payoff and smooth texture. Made in France, these have a bit of a sheen without looking frosty. They have a faint scent that remind me of baby powder. The gold case is slightly cheap-looking as all the units have a tiny dent/nick on one side and the shade number is printed on top of the cap while there is another product number printed on the side.

The pics below show #407 Metallic Coral.


Below is #406 Neonic Orange.



Compared with the other orange lipsticks in my stash, Neonic Orange is clearly the most pure orange-toned while Metallic Coral is slightly more pink than Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate #12 and not as sheer as RMK Irresistible Lips C #27 Orange. The Dior Addict Ultra Gloss #542 Orange Pareo is from the new summer collection. Neonic Orange, Metallic Coral and the Rimmel lipstick left faint stains on my arm after wiping the swatches off with tissue.

I am absolutely DYING to get my hands on the Cosmic Black Eyeshadow! I wish they would release it here in the UK =(

The lipsticks look great from your swatches too =)

I swatched the eyeshadows yesterday, Metallic Lilac was enic, quite pigmented and smooth, kind of like the silver shade but with a hint of purple, but Cosmic Black was a disappointing mess, the black doesn't show up at all except in gritty flakes, only the golden glitter stayed :/
