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.

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.
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!

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!
