L'Oreal 2016 Collections at Bed Bath & Beyond

They're here! The new L'Oreal 2016 products that I showed you sneak peeks of a while back have landed at Bed Bath & Beyond, which means it should only be a short while before we see these at all the usual retailers (Ulta, drugstores and big box stores). 

Many thanks to reader Rachel (@rpolansky77 on Twitter) for these pics of the displays. Rachel spotted these at her local Bed Bath & Beyond this week--here's a closer look:

L'Oreal Lumi Cushion Foundation 

As you can see, the new Lumi Cushion Foundation comes in 12 shades (four cool, four neutral, four warm). Rachel said this was around $15, which is pretty much what I expected. But of course you know that we won't ever need to pay that (drugstore sales, coupons, and rewards for the win!).

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Contour Palettes
(retail: $11.49 each)

These palettes contain a contour shade and a highlight shade, and there are three different shades in the range.

L'Oreal Lés Monos by Colour Riche
(retail: $4.89 each)

I know that so many of us have been waiting for this moment. The Mono Shadows are here! These "velvet soft gel-to-powder" shadows have been in Europe for a while now (and have so many rave reviews). I haven't been this excited about a L'Oreal shadow since the first Infallible shadows came out back in 2011. Must. Get. Them. All. (OK, maybe not all, but I will be getting a few when I find them and I will certainly review them!)

Have you spotted any of these displays out in the wild yet? Thoughts?

Thanks again, Rachel, for the great sighting and pics. I really appreciate it!

  1. I was pretty excited about a drugstore cushion compact foundation, but if the lightest shade they start with is the 2s, then I already know it will be WAY too dark for my skin. >.<

    1. That is strange... Hopefully later releases in other stores will have a larger shade selection! I need lighter ones too and would love to find a DS cushion fdn that works.

  3. OMG!!! This is great! The darkest contour looks like it could work on me! Also Black Radiance has a new contour palette being sold on Target too.

  4. This is all very exciting but I am really bummed they aren't bringing out some new Infallible shadow shades and new la matte shades.

    1. I know, I'd love some more good DS mattes too! So few, if any, really good ones in drugstoreland:( especially in sets or palettes. Milani has some nice matte singles but for a palette I went back to higher end ... currently loving TF's Natural Matte eye palette. Nice smooth texture with less fallout than most mattes.

  5. Oooooo I would love to try out the contour palette, I wonder if the brush will be any good? I see a coupon on the display as well! This is so exciting! Thanks G!

  7. I find it so odd that a store that primarily sells home goods, like "Bed, Bath and Beyond", gets beauty products faster than drug stores and even Ulta. It seriously doesn't make sense to me. Anyway, I'm always stoked to see new products coming from L'oreal. I held off on buying Lancome's cushion foundation because I knew that L'oreal would have a dupe within a few months.

    1. It's technically not BBB, rather Harmon Beauty. Harmon has stores-within-stores at select BBB locations. All of these products are also showing up at freestanding Harmon Beauty stores too (located on the East Coast), so it makes sense from a distribution standpoint that if Harmon's getting these first, then the BBB stores with a Harmon inside are also getting them. :)

    2. And I belive that Harmon/BB&B are OWNED by L'Oreal, too. I could be wrong, not trying to be a know it all, here, I just think I read that somewhere. I makes me mad too, as I don't drive and I have a Wal-Mart, Wallgreens, and Target, all within a block of my house, LOL!

  8. Hey just a heads up G! All of the Revlon Lip Butters are on clearance at Walgreens, The Revlon Moisture Stains and the Revlon Shadow Links! Sorry no pics.. Manager @ Walgreens

  9. I need those shadows, I just hope the color pay off is there... Maybe I should start off with one or two and if they end up being good shadows then go back for more. Sadly they haven't shown up around the Memphis area yet. I am going to keep my eyes on the look out though! Thank you G :)!

    1. Hey Miranda! Have you seen reviews for these on European blogs? The color payoff definitely seems to be there (as least in all the swatches I've seen!). :)

    2. I need another matte brown shadow like a hole in the head, but I had a 1.00 coupon so I bought one of these new shadows yesterday at CVS. I used it today, its really nice. I'll maybe pick up a few more. They had an orangeish shade that looked different.
