L'Oreal Fall Collection 2011

I reviewed Owl's Night, which in my opinion, is the most interesting of their offerings this time around here.

The others I picked up are:

Owl's Lust - this is a great brick creme. Good application. Two coats for even coverage.

Amazon's Flare - this one is hard for me (and my serious lack of photography skills) to capture, but it's actually a deep flamingo pink jelly.

Amazon's Flash - this is a bright, brassy gold foil that reminds me of those old blown glass Christmas ornaments. Not my favorite, probably because of my skin tone. Great one-coat application though!

Cockatoo's Mystery - This is another easy application creme in a light taupe that's on the grey side. It's like a mix of Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic and cement. My second favorite of the collection, but not unique.

Cockatoo's Wisdom - Another great creme, easy application.  This is a dark taupy/mushroom in the same vein of OPI's You Don't Know Jacques. Again, great color, but not unique.

Raven's Strength - Slightly greyed steely black with very subtle silver/blue/green/pink shimmer.  It went on a little like a frost, but without the "frost streaking." A little dark for me, but more interesting than a straight black.

The others just didn't suit me at all, including one that was a pale pastel pink.

But I did pick up a few more from what I assume is their regular collection - they were white capped rather than silver capped.

Whimsical - This is a peachy colored foil - great application, hard to photograph.

Mystery - This one really is a mystery - very aptly named! Hard to decide what color this one really is. After some sleuthing, it turns out to be a deep forest green creme, but you can't even see the green on the bottle top as you pull the brush out as you can on some of the dark colors.  So I did a THIN swipe on a piece of paper to tell.  LOL!

Valiant - This is a graphite color, but NOT a Chanel Graphite dupe by any stretch. Again, good application and coverage, but not terribly unique.

That's all for tonight!  Wishing all of you a great evening!
