Bollywood inspired Retro Look with the L'Oreal L'Or Sunset Collection


Bollywood, as an industry, completed 100 years of its existence. And this occasion is being celebrated at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival. L’Oreal Paris and Cannes Film Festival are long time associates and to make the 100 years mark of Bollywood even more special, a few bloggers have been sent a L’Oreal Paris Goodie bag with lots of awesome stuff from the newly launched L’Or Sunset Collection. The Collection for Cannes 2013 is already creating a hullabaloo around the blogosphere. I received a few of their products too. And I am in love with each and every product.



 We were asked to create a couple of looks inspired by Bollywood with the help of the products sent to us. The obvious choice for me was a nice ‘retro’winged liner look with lots of shine on the face, dark lips and a sleek updo. The products I used for my look are…



I also had to use a ton of things for my base but nothing other than the items in the pic are from L’Oreal so didn’t picture them !!

And my look…



The quad I received is called Eau De Rose, shimmery pinks, peach and a burgundy. The eye shadows are a little sheer but very shimmery so they still do shine on the eyes. I applied them with a wet brush here. The Super Liner gives a good glossy finish and is quite easy to apply !! That's a lot coming from me haha as I need the easiest of technologies for applying eye liners :p


I finally have the much coveted Volume Million Lashes Mascara too. Quite liking it ;)

The blue eye pencil in shade 108 Portofino Blue. This one is veryyy soft. I can’t wait to try this on my waterline. It should be safe since there’s no shimmer/glitter in it.

The lipstick is Forever Brown from the Color Riche Range. Insane on golden shimmer but doesn’t look tacky for a moment. I can see myself using this in a blotted version. MIL is in love with it haha ;)

My mother in law was super excited because I was doing something she is a pro at ( the winged eye liner) and happily agreed to do my hair. Of course, we couldn't achieve a very professional look with our limited supply of natural hair (lol), hair pins and all the other necessities. But I still liked what she managed to do...poor thing kept mt father in law waiting for dinner while she was busy doing my 'hairstyle' :D



She also picked these earrings for me to wear. These were originally hers. She gave them to me some 8 years back and I had carelessly tossed them somewhere, after which they had been my daughter’s playthings. Never had dreamt that they’d come in useful to me J

While my liner went all wonky, I am still happi at the outcome. How about you ?? How you managed to snag anything from the new collection ?? Psssp…I have ordered some more things from the collection online too…sshhh ;)
