L’Oréal Luxe #LUXMAS

Before Christmas even hit L’Oréal LUXE hosted a fabulous event showcasing new products that would be coming out just in time for Christmas. These included some of my favourite lines like Biotherm, Clarisonic, Giorgio Armani, Kiehl’s, Lancome, Shu Uemura, Urban Decay and YSL. I can bet that if you are a beauty lover, you got something from at least one of these brands for Christmas. The event was perfectly laid out with a section dedicated to each brand making it easy to check everything out.



Since its creation in 1998, Aquasource has become the lifetime moisturizer for millions of women. Thanks to its still-innovative gel-cream texture and its uniquely smoothing formula, enhanced to deliver even deep, long-lasting hydration, yesterday’s skincare revolutionary today enjoys cult status. It starts with the very first touch: Aquasource’s intriguing gel-cream texture glides coolly onto the face with an imperceptible watery gel lightness. fresh, but not greasy. weightless, yet moisturizing. never oily. she’s impressed. By evening, she’s smitten: with a texture lightness that belies its ability to lock in moisture all-day – and beyond, by evening she marvels at her skin’s quality, its softness, the smoothness. everything she’d heard is true. They’ll never be parted again: every day, millions of fresh cells surface her skin. smoothed and deeply moisturized, her skin reveals a new glow. she’s a little bit in love… In 2014, Biotherm celebrates this unique Aquasource love story with a new campaign fronted by ambassadress Leighton Meester, as Biotherm’s new global face.

With two new variations of red (pure red and burgundy) for LIP MAESTRO, ROUGE ECSTASY and NAIL LACQUER, the lips and nails can be mixed and matched to create any look. For the lips: a contrast in finish. The shine of ROUGE ECSTASY, the “CC” lipstick that combines lip care, comfort and the vibrant colour, plays off the velvety look of LIP MAESTRO, an incredibly soft red in a dense, matte and luminous shade.The nails in bright red and crimson NAIL LACQUER burst with shine. These intense lacquers featuring the unique Giorgio Armani Beauty gel-fluid texture enhance the expression of the hands for ultimate femininity. Giorgio Armani Beauty’s very first ultra-shiny TOP COAT shade 0, protects the nails and boosts the hold of the polish.
