L’Oréal Paris Miss Candy Collection (Limited Edition) Review, Photos, Swatches

I want candy!

Brand new from L’Oréal Paris, meet the Miss Candy Collection. You may already be seeing this limited edition collection in stores now, but it’s not slated for an official release until May. Enjoy these pops of colors for your eyes and nails!

Infallible Eyeshadows…

The core collection of Infallible Eyeshadows (in which some of them I’ve reviewed here) are very popular due to their rich pigment payoff, ease of use, and length of wear. While I didn’t have the time to put the wear time of these limited edition shades to the test, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were long wearing. (If there’s anyone who has tested these specific shades, please let us know in the comments!) I will still say I find they’re best applied with a finger or a sponge applicator. They can also be applied with a wet synthetic brush, resulting in a “foil” method for some of the more iridescent shades.

Just like my previous warnings, fight the urge to dig into the product—you really only need to lightly swipe across the top. Make sure not to throw away the little pressing tool piece that you’ll find inside when you open it. You’re supposed to use it to pack the shadow back down after use.

The new shades:

  • Dive Right In — iridescent aqua
  • Strawberry Blonde — iridescent cotton candy pink
  • With a Twist — iridescent violet
  • Cherie Merie — shimmering medium orange

L’Oréal Paris Miss Candy Collection Colour Riche Nail Color…

The Miss Candy Collection is home to eight Colour Riche nail colors. All of the shades are jellies—so that means you’re going to see visible nail line with most of them. If you’re not a fan of jelly polishes, these might not be for you. However, they do fit perfectly with the “candy” theme. They kind of remind me of transparent hard candies and gummy bears when they’re on my nails.

The one thing I noticed with these, is that they do take three coats before the coverage is even. At that point, they do level nicely, and cover decently. In the swatches, I used three coats for each shade, and believe it or not, I didn’t use any top coat. That’s just how glossy these are on their own! Of course, while wearing—I’m always going to suggest a base coat and a top coat so you’ll get the longest wear possible out of your mani.

Colour Riche Nail Lingerie…

Color Riche Nail Lingerie is a collection of easy to use nail decals, and you can wear them solo if you want to—but they’re really not polish. I prefer to wear them over a base shade to pop the color. One helpful hint with these, is that you MUST wait a few hours until your base polish is dry, or the decals may slightly buckle around the edges. You just line up the round corner of the decal to your your cuticle, gently smooth them out with the heat from your fingers, and file off the excess with a nail file. Easy, right?

You’ll want to keep your hands out of cleaning products while these are on, because they’ll lift the adhesive. When it’s time to remove, I gently lift them after moistening them with acetone for a few seconds. With the Nail Lingerie in the Miss Candy Collection, you’ll get more of the star-burst swirl pattern on longer nails, versus shorter nails due to the shape/size of the pattern on the decal.

Bottom Line…

I LOVE these jellies! I know they won’t be for everyone—but they’re the perfect offering for a “candy” themed collection, because the shades look like hard candies on the nails. What fun colors for summer, too!
