New L'Oreal eyeshadows - headed to the US soon?

L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Palettes in Hidden Gems and Nude Lingerie

A little while ago, reader Abigail shaded this link to the new L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad Collection that is currently available in Europe. Check out this post for more pics and swatches. You can also view all eight quads on the L'Oreal UK website here.

Gorgeous, right?

As Abigail noted, the current L'Oreal eyeshadow quads are on clearance at Walgreens right now, so it's no stretch to conclude that they might be making room for these. My best guess for us seeing these in the US is early 2013 or possible Spring 2013, but that's only a guess, of course.

Keep reading for another L'Oreal eyeshadow line that (hopefully) will hit the US soon...

Here's another L'Oreal eyeshadow line that is currently only available in Europe and Australia (and maybe other countries--I'm not sure):

 L'Oreal Color Appeal Chrome Intensity Eyeshadow Cacao Mania

There are three shades in this range (Cacao Mania, Timeless Green and Blue Jean) in the UK and you can view all three shades on the L'Oreal UK website here. Also, check out this review, with swatches, of Blue Jean.

In Australia, there seem to be two shades of Chrome Intensity Eyeshadows: Aquadisiac and Purple  Obsession.

Also in Australia (and possibly elsewhere) there are two other lines in the L'Oreal Color Appeal family: Chrome Shine Eyeshadows and Trio Pro Eyeshadows.

I obviously have no idea if or when these will ever hit the US, but I think I can speak for some of us when I say that I hope they show up here very soon (early 2013 to be exact).

Once again, if you like the older L'Oreal quads, stock up on them while you can since they're on clearance at Walgreens.

Thanks again for the heads-up on the new Colour Riche Quads, Abigail!


  1. They are so chic looking ! I would love to have one of these in my makeup bag!

  2. o wow those look gorgeous, i can't wait!

  3. Oh, wow, I don't think I've ever seen such pretty palettes from a drugstore line! Seems they took inspiration from their higher-end brands like Lancome. I hope these come to Canada too!

  4. I like the sleek packaging of those new eyeshadow palettes but I don't like the design or how the eyeshadows are placed in the palette. I prefer eyeshadow palettes to have an even amount of each eyeshadow in a pan. lol IDK it's just a preference. However those Chrome Eyeshadows look amazing and I hope they bring those Trio Pro Eyeshadows to the US!

  5. I love the Nude Lingerie color palette!! So gorgeous :) xo

  6. Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want all the shadows!

  7. Wow, I will be buying that. They're gorgeous.

  8. I'd love to see the chrome intensity shadows stateside over the next year! I love the packaging. :)

  9. These look really nice! And yeah, I noticed they were clearing out the L'Oreal quads. Figures that the one I wanted to pick up (Neutrals) was already all gone.

  10. I don't think you guys in the States are getting the Chrome or Color Appeal as these lines of product have been recently discontinnued along with the Studio Secrets line, or at least they are where I live.
    The Chrome line was on for several years, and it had sub-lines like Chrome Shine, Chrome Intensity, Chrome Holographic and Chrome Platinum with some good 2 dozen shades -maybe more- in single and duo form scattered through different regions. It's sad L'Oreal pulled the plug on this line because it was decent/good in my opinion.

    As for the new Color Riche line, I'd say I'm not convinced... although I do like the packaging. And feels surprisingly light!
