Hey everybody! I hope your week is going fantastically well. :)
Sooo...we all know Zoya has everybody in love with their Naturel collection. But did you know that L'Oreal has come out with a limited edition Collection Privee of nudes as well? I decided to give a couple of them a try! I picked up Frieda's Nude and Doutzen's Nude at Rite Aid for buy one, get one half off. ;)
As with most times I polish shop at Rite Aid, my hubby was with me. He absolutely turned his nose up at nude/natural shades. You see, there was no red in the display, and that was just plain unacceptable. :) But he did tell me that Frieda's Nude was "the only one that looked halfway decent", so I took that as his endorsement to pick it up.
Frieda's Nude is a beige-gold shimmer that leans frosty...the brushstrokes weren't too terrible though. The polish applied pretty well, and I had no cleanup issues. I'm wearing 3 coats in the photos.
This polish would look dated if not for the very strong shimmer, which is beautiful.
And before I show you Doutzen's Nude, which was my pick of the collection, I must tell you that I had just gone outside and picked ice off the central unit (during our wintry weather) and came in and stupidly took pics. So my hands were just getting warm and look like balls of flame. :/
Doutzen's Nude is a mauve-tinged creme that is really lovely. I did have some streaking issues with two coats, but a third one evened it all out.
The above photo is the best representation of the color of Doutzen's Nude...so ignore my lobster flambé phalanges and enjoy the lovely color. :D I really loved wearing this one.
So...what do you think of L'Oreal's nudes? There are 6 shades in the collection, some coral/rose-tinged, some yellow-hued. I haven't gotten a Zoya Naturel yet, so I don't know how the formula would compare. Oh, and I have no idea who Frieda and Doutzen are. So there it is. :D
I don't know...COULD red be considered a nude? I mean...look at my hands!! :P
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3
