 NEW L'Oreal Collection Exclusive La Vie en Rose Sheer Mattes

Thanks so much to reader @msqueenbee617 on Instagram for this one! She spotted the new L'Oreal Collection Exclusive La Vie en Rose Sheer Matte display at her local Harmon this week and kindly shared the above pic (by the way, I loooooove that song. Always makes me cry whenever I hear it, but I digress).

@msqueenbee617 mentioned that, as is often the case with L'Oreal lipsticks, the actual lipsticks don't quite match the swatches on the display. PROOF HERE. (That's @msqueenbee617's pic of the shade Eve's Pink, compared to the display swatch of Eve's Pink. Totally different.)

Also, @msqueenbee617 said that despite the description on the package that says these are sheer matte lipsticks, she found Eve's Pink to be pretty opaque. She said it was definitely matte, but not drying.

I enlarged/cropped  @msqueenbee617's pic above for a closer look:

Please note that the prices are Harmon are always a bit lower than other retailers. These should be $8.99 when they land at Ulta (that's the price of other Collection Exclusives at Ulta) and they should be the regular price that you're used to seeing at your local CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc. when it comes to L'Oreal lipsticks at those retailers.

Have you spotted this display in your area yet? Thoughts? Oh, I also want to mention that the Collection Exclusives are not usually limited edition. For example, you can still purchase the Collection Exclusive nudes and reds at Ulta, and those released quite a while ago. So there's probably no rush to get these, if you'd rather wait for a good sale.

Thanks again, @msqueenbee617, for the great pic and info. I really appreciate it!

  1. A sheer rose matte? I love the sound of that. I haven't been too into L'Oreal lipsticks lately, but maybe this will pull me back.

  2. I always look forward to your posts about new drugstore makeup collections. I really enjoy seeing the displays as the stores in my area don't get these limited edition/seasonal items.

  3. Interesting combination, never seen a specifically sheer matte lip color before. I've seen under-pigmented mattes before because they don't want to cooperate, but this looks intriguing.

  4. L'Oreal hit it out of the park. I was waiting for more shades from this line since I love the reds they released. The mattes are so good.

  5. Sheer AND matte? I've never heard of lipsticks being both sheer and matte before. I hope they come out with other sheer matte colors if they end up looking good. While pink is a great color, I've been on a brown kick lately.

    1. Oddly I'm the opposite. I'm excited that they're not brown. It's driving me crazy that so many lipsticks coming out that are "nude" shades are so brown undertones. Then again, I don't really find brown tones flattering on my skin (perhaps a rosy brown would look good). To each their own though.

    2. You do need to realize though that the color "nude" can mean brown. So it's nice as a darker skinned woman to be able to try out the nude trend that people of lighter complexions have been able to do easily for ages.

  6. I'm jazzed - I love their nudes collection.

  7. Do you have any insight as to why it's impossible to find JLo's red from collection? I love the jlo nude & was hoping for a jlo pink....but doesn't look like it's coming out.

    1. The Jlo nude polish is great too.

  8. Thank you for the info. Can't wait to find these lipsticks in my local drug store. I love it when L'oreal does these collections that are skin tone specific.

  9. I am wishing for a new lipstick to get excited about. I don't like mattes at all so I will be skipping these which is too bad because the colors are pretty!!!

  10. I keep thinking i want to collect all the Eva colors (although it might be impossible to find some of them now) but maybe I will start with this one.

  11. Sheer matte sounds like an oxymoron to me but I will wait to pass judgement until I see swatches. That said, I dislike the scent/taste of all L'oreal lipsticks so will probably pass on the entire thing. Pity because its nice to see pinks again! I too am tired of nudes, browns, etc., which all look terrible on me.
