Visiting the L'Oreal Red Carpet Beauty Lounge – TIFF 2013 CollectionPrivée

L’Oreal generously provided VIP treatment to Beauty Bloggers this past weekend with an invitation to the Red Carpet Beauty Lounge followed by tickets to a TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) screening.

With L’Oreal’s Hugo Thibault, MomsMakeupStash, LinerGlitterGloss, and NelleCreations

The VIP Beauty Lounge featured products from L’Oreal’s Collection Privée – a limited edition set of lipsticks and nailpolishes inspired by four red carpet beauties: Doutzen Kroes, Jennifer Lopez, Freida Pinto and Eva Longoria.

L'Oreal Collection Privee Lipsticks

The sheer lipsticks come in varying shades of nude with pink, golden, greige and violet undertones. The polishes are packaged in sleek mini-bottles with curved professional brushes which make application super-easy.

As part of our VIP treatment, we were invited to swatch and pick out our own lipsticks and nailpolishes – I opted for Eva’s golden lipstick and Freida’s parma nailpolish. (I later received JLo’s greige nailpolish from the manicure station).

Downstairs, the L’Oreal Beauty Lounge is open to the public, with a lipstick touch-up bar, express manicure station and a ponytail bar.

After your beauty treatment, there’s a fun photobooth to capture your red carpet look!

Glamming it up with Rica

The TIFF screening we viewed was Supermensch, directed by Mike Myers. Despite being a documentary, Mike Myers’ hilarious interviews and edgy editing had us laughing through the whole film – it was definitely a memorable experience!

If you’re downtown this week – you should definitely head over to the L’Oreal Beauty Lounge for some pampering and the chance to test out Collection Privée products!

    You go to the most fabulous events Ella! I'm so envious! I love the lipsticks in the collection, although I'm more into color over nudes these days, they all look pretty. You looked great!
