The L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Privee (£8.19) is a range ￼of custom-made nude lipsticks created in collaboration with L’Oreal spokesmodels with the idea that there is a shade to suit every skin tone.
Cheryl Cole, Frieda Pinto, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Eva Longoria and Doutzen Kroes created the shades available in the UK.
Cheryl is for honey complexions, Frieda for those with caramel tones, Julianne for pale skins, Liya for dark skinned lovelies (can’t find this shade anywhere!) Eva for golden complexions and Doutzen for fair skins.
Whatever your shade, L’Oreal have tried to create something ‘nude’ for you.
The KIKO Precision Eyebrow Pencil (£5.90) is perfect for those of us who are trying to grow out their brows. I’m not trying to emulate Cara D (her brows look great on her but would look like caterpillars on me) just trying to mask years of enthusiastic plucking. The pencil is made of hard waxes to ensure the colour stays put. The other end of the pencil is a handy brow brush so you can ensure a natural smudge and no harsh lines. A sharpener is also included.
