L'Oreal Miss Candy Collection

Lovers of sugary shades and pretty pastels will be like kids in a candy shop with this latest collection from L’Oreal. Fans of an understated, minimal look might not be quite as taken with it – Miss Candy is colourful, girly and fun, described as a ‘mouth-watering, sugar sweet selection of swirls, sparkles and shimmering shades’.

L'Oreal Miss Candy Collection

Different shades have been released for different markets but in Ireland and the UK, the line includes 6 Glam Shine Lip Glosses, 3 new Colour Infallible Eye Shadows and a whopping 10 new shades of Colour Riche Le Vernis Nail Varnish.

L'Oreal Miss Candy Collection Lip Gloss

I’ve got three of the glosses here in #703 Tart Lollipop, #709 Miss Candy and #712, Dolce Pralina. Swirling together an iridescent shimmer and a cream, these are actually nicely wearable. What you get is a pretty wash of shine, with subtle shimmer and a hint of a tint – perfect for creating the illusion of a plumped up pout.

The heart shaped applicator is flexible and easy to use, transferring just the right amount of product. They’re not sticky or gritty but feel light and smooth on the lips – if you’re a gloss gal, these are definitely worth a goo. They’re €11.29.

L'Oreal Miss Candy Collection Colour Infallible Eyeshadows

The eyeshadows are Innocent Turquoise, Naughty Strawberry and Sassy Marshmallow and happily they all have that soft, creamy texture that we’ve come to expect from the Colour Infallible range. They’re long lasting, crease resistant and waterproof, but in a classic case of the grass being always greener, I can’t help hankering for the Tender Caramel and Pepsy Coral shades being introduced in other markets. If you’re in France or the US over the summer, be a love and bring me one back, would ya? €10.79’s the damage here.

L'Oreal Miss Candy Collection Nail Polish

I have no such reservations when it comes to the shades on offer for nails. These three are gorgeous – I’m especially loving French Riviera, that beautiful blue. And with 10 colours to choose from, from pastels through to brights, I’m sure there’s something for everyone. At €7.55 they’re a few euro more expensive than I’d like, but they’re a dream to apply and they wear pretty nicely too.

The collection launches next month. What do you reckon, craving candy, or are ya sweet enough?

    I love L’Oreal eyeshadows, but when i wear pink it always makes me look like ive been punched in the face … YUMMMMM flying saucers

  • Chloe says:

    The eyeshadows are gorgeous, but I never wear pinks or blues so they’d be wasted on me! The nail polishes look fabulous though.

  • Aisling says:

    Emma I LOVE the sweets in the pics – flying saucers! Does anyone remember the sweet paper you used to be able to get? Is that still around?

  • le smurf says:

    Aisling – yeah it is. You can buy it in sheets for 10cent or something. My sister works in one of those old sweet shop retro places…. Nom Milk Teeth!

  • LoCo says:

    Nail polishes look fab.
    But in the first pick sour dummies- god I love sour dummies. I was addicted to them in school, dummies and Freddo’s. Is it too early to go to the shop?? :)

  • I’m a sour jelly girl myself. I remember buying that sweet paper from the shop in Celbridge Aisling! It was actually disgusting now I think of it, used to stick to the roof of my mouth like communion wafers but it didn’t stop me buying it for some reason…

  • littlesis says:

    I was a sour jellies girl too, Emma!
    Nice looking collection, in reality, I’d probably only wear the nail polishes enough to buy.

  • Aisling says:

    Emma – yes it was like sickly Communion! Haha!

  • stregalice says:

    I can’t believe those nail polishes are that expensive! I’ve seen them in France and here in Italy and they are in the 4/5€ range! That’s so unfair for you :(
    But here the collection had only three shades of eye shadow and polish…

  • Robyn says:

    Ooh, the tart lollipop gloss and the nail polishes look amazing, as do the sour jellies ;-)

    I may be trying some of these, and the sweets too.

  • Ms Jelly says:

    I love these colours, but I’m another who can’t wear candy or pastel colours. I’m with vonfluffy on the pink eyeshadow – it makes me look like I’ve a nasty eye infection.

    That sweet paper was horrid, we must have been the novelty of being able to eat paper! Can’t beat the fizzy cola bottles though :)

  • LynnieDoll says:

    Not a pastel person at all, shame colours look lovely. That coral nailpolish definitely looks worth a look. What is it with me and coral nail polishes!! I have 4 so far!!!!

  • Annette M. says:

    Any chance any of these are coming to the US?
