L’Oreal Paris Holiday Party & Spring 2013 Preview Event

A few weeks ago Alicia for Funny Face Beauty, her super sweet sister Krista and I headed to Toronto for the L’Oreal Paris Holiday Party & Spring 2013 Preview Event. It was held at the gorgeous Trump Tower and although I’m not a fan of Mr. Trump himself I cannot lie in saying the hotel wasn’t breath-taking, cause it was. 

It was so much fun seeing some familiar faces including some amazing beauty bloggers, beautiful PR ladies and some of the fabulous L’Oreal family. We all got to experiment with 80+ new products coming out for 2013, have some photo’s taken, drink some yummy holiday cocktails and we can’t forget the oh so yummy chocolate bar.

As if learning about the 80+ new products that L’Oreal Paris has to offer coming up in 2013 they also have a new interactive IPhone App that’s now available for FREE on ITunes called Color Genius. 

This app is pretty darn amazing, I’m kinda hooked on it, it helps you accessorize your makeup to your outfit of the day. You just take a picture of what you’re wearing that day, select the mood your in… ie for day or evening and then choose if you want to clash, match or blend your makeup to your outfit. It will then find your perfect lipstick, nail polish and eyeshadow to compliment your mood and your outfit. 

Everyone has to check this app out, I know you’re going to love it as much as I do!


You can’t have a holiday party without sweets, I was on a sugar high for about 4 days after this event as we all were able to take a goodie bag home of all these amazing chocolates.
