What Would It Mean To Have Adele (Or Any Other Plus-Size Woman) As The Face Of L’Oreal?

Adele has reportedly backed away from a $20 million contract with L’Oreal that she has been negotiating since March. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, sources had said the singer needed “a lot of persuasion to get her to agree” but “it looks like she’s close to landing a deal.”

Only … not.

Taming The Frizzies? It’s Not A Myth!

Once upon a time, a woman with a thick head of thin hair had a problem. This problem was that every winter, her hair frizzed up like static electricity was running through her veins. She fretted wearing hats. She fretted wearing earmuffs. Winter was quite unpleasant. Then she discovered L’Oreal Professional Mythic Nourishing Oil —…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss

I’m going to be honest: what initially drew me to L’Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss was the packaging. I’m the first to admit that I’m a sucker for advertising — I don’t even wear lip gloss. But I laid eyes on Le Gloss at a drugstore chain where I was in a rush to a)…

Freida Pinto Gets Whitewashed By L’Oreal

We all know that Freida Pinto, star of the Oscar-winning film “Slumdog Millionaire,” is a gorgeous Indian woman. So why in the hell did L’Oreal try to Photoshop her into a white lady? [ONTD]…

Behind The Scenes Of Jennifer Lopez’s L’Oreal Shoot

Jennifer Lopez sure is having a moment. She’s an “American Idol” judge and she’s shilling for L’Oreal now. I wonder what Tyra and Andre Leon Talley would say about her vogue-style of modeling. What do you think about it, and are you excited for J.Lo’s comeback?

Pretty Nails For A Good Cause

We all could use a wintry nail polish to not just carry us through the holiday season, but also to perk up our fingers and toes in the dark, cold months ahead. Burgundy is one of our fave colors: It’s as pretty as red, but not so predictable. L’Oreal Paris will donate $3 of every…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipcolour Stars Collection

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with lipstick for the last two years. I love red lipstick and apply it perfectly in the morning, even using a matching lip liner to outline and fill in my lips first. But it never fails that once I take a mouthful of yogurt at work, my spoon is wearing…

Beauty Test Drive: L’Oreal Ideal Skin Genesis Complexion Equalizer

I have extremely oily skin that is a curse (I’m always shiny) and a blessing (I won’t wrinkle easily). So for years, I’ve ignored the advice of my dermatologist and beauty professionals who said I should moisturize despite my skin type. Until recently, I hadn’t found a moisturizer that wouldn’t contribute to the oil slick…

Hair Dye That Doesn’t Make Your Eyes Tear Up

L’Oreal recently invited editors to go check out what they call a “revolution” in haircare: INOA, a new permanent dye that aims to color hair sans ammonia, long revered by colorists as the only way to get serious results. But let’s be honest here; anyone who’s ever suffered the toxic fumes and noticed strawlike hair…

L’Oréal Markets “Macho” Anti-Wrinkle Product To French Guys

In France, there’s a metrosexual common denominator—all males seem to come out of the womb in bespoke suits and are born with an encyclopedic knowledge of style and culture. But the real men use this super macho anti-wrinkle pen product from L’Oréal. That’s right, dudes get wrinkles, too, and the way they combat them i…

The End Is Near For Gray Hair

The days of dyeing your hair to hide the gray might be gone for good, thanks to L’Oreal. They’ve invested over $900 million dollars (whoa) last year alone into research regarding hair color, to most recently find that it’s quite possible gray hairs could be a thing of the past. Basically, in non-scientific terms, hair…

Hair Model Citizen: Cover Girl Perfection

Christ on a cracker, we don’t think we’ve seen more perfect hair ever. Some paparazzi yelled, “Hey Charlize, over here!” at the recent Hollywood Film Festival Awards, she snapped her head back, and boom, somebody could put this pic on a magazine cover. To get this look, you’ll need some seriously good genes, a killer…

The Hairspray That Makes Professionals All Giddy

We already told you about the official cocktail of Fashion Week, but here’s a little insider info on the unofficial behind-the-scenes hair product: L’Oreal’s Elnett hairspray.

L’Oreal Sued. Because You’re Not Worth It?

Sacre bleu! L’Oreal has been found guilty of racial discrimination. The French high court, La Cour de Cassation, slapped the make-up giant with the guilty sticker after it was revealed that L’Oreal and the recruitment agency Adecco planned on using only white women as staff to sell their Garnier Fructis Style hair care line. Evidently,…

Beyonce Looks Like Herself In New L’Oreal Ad

Although L’Oreal denied altering Beyonce’s skin and features in a Feria ad last August, the beauty care company chose to let Beyonce’s real beauty shine in a new ad. What do you all think? Did L’Oreal lighten her skin and change her nose in the August ad? Or do you think the lighting was different…
