A portrait in the nude, daring in its stripped-down sensuality with natural shades in Mineralized Skinfinishes that play up the nakedness of cheeks, lips, eyes…for a glamazon who knows the power of artifice, but has the confidence and allure to strip it all away. N Collection is naked, with coverage — it’ll be our little secret. Custom-created high-performance brushes mean no one need ever know. Seductive, and ripe for scandal.

Oh my goodness, are these not adorable?  Sigh, I wish they weren’t $90 a pop, because I would surely consider getting one otherwise.  I just don’t think I could bring myself to splurge that much on any makeup item with my student budget!  Anyone a fan of Chantecaille?

In celebration of the 2008 Golden Globe Awards, L’Oréal Paris continues its tradition of honoring Hollywood’s most talented women in film and television with an exclusive, luxury compact. Designed by Kwiat, one of Hollywood’s favorite diamond jewelry companies, the L’Oréal Paris 2008 Red Carpet Compact will be presented to the Golden Globes’ female nominees in all categories.

The L’Oréal Paris 2008 Red Carpet Compact is inspired by the glamour of awards season and the stars that make the night so special. In a beautiful, star-inspired design of Swarovski crystals set in 18K white gold on classic plated 18K yellow gold, this exclusive compact is a stunning design of beauty and brilliance. Complete with a “red-carpet” ruby crystal embedded in the push-button opening holding together two makeup mirrors on the inside, the L’Oréal Paris 2008 Red Carpet Compact is a luxurious, must-have red carpet accessory for each nominee to ensure she looks her best throughout the evening.

This stunning compact isn’t just for the stars. The L’Oréal Paris Red Carpet compact will be available to purchase at L’Oréal Paris retail stores (888-270-7743; suggested retail price $50). In keeping with L’Oréal Paris’ longstanding support of the OCRF, 20 percent of the retail sale price will benefit this vital organization.
