Pump up the volume with L’Oreal Elnett Volume Excess Hairspray!
Monday, January 5th, 2015

The holiday season can be one of excess, but there’s one thing we’re not ready to give up, and that’s excessive volume! L’Oreal’s Elnett Volume Excess Hairspray creates volume from the roots by texturising the hair. When the day is done, it disappears at the stroke of a brush.

Take your hair to new heights whilst still keeping it safe for work with these tutorials from top stylist Stéphane Lancien.

Keep hair healthy this party season…

party hair

Whenever we’re having a good hair day here at Latest in Beauty, you can be sure it’s not because we just woke up like that. Looking good takes effort, and most of the time takes its toll on your hair too. That’s why we’re always on the hunt for the best way to keep damage to a minimum, especially with the teased and structured do’s that we all opt for during party season. Luckily, we’ve found the perfect tag team!

Styling is always best done on hair that hasn’t been freshly washed, but oily roots isn’t exactly ideal either. If you’re planning for a big night out, then only wash it the day before with a regime that will cleanse your scalp without stripping it. Shampoo that’s too harsh will cause your scalp to over produce oil. Keep it balanced by using the Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Shampoo followed by the Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Conditioner. This gentle duo leave hair feeling clean and infused with moisture – not an easy combination to come by! Also, the inclusion of wheat protein in the formula is ideal for pre-styling, as it makes the hair stronger and more manageable.

The most essential piece of party hair kit (beyond your straighteners and curling tongs) is hairspray, but finding the best one is another matter. It’s easy to overdo it – your hair can quickly start to feel more on the crispy side without the right spray. Not only can this damage your hair, but it’s a nightmare to fix once it’s happened. With the L’Oreal Elnett Satin Volume Excess hairspray, you can keep your style firmly in place without making it rock hard. The nozzle disperses a fine spray, giving you much more control over how much you need to apply. Even once it’s been sprayed on, it’s easy to manipulate without having to rewash and pull a detangling comb through your hair. Simply keep a bristle brush to hand to gently brush through it during styling or at the end of the night. The cherry on top is that the Volume Excess edition gives the hair a lifted backcomb effect so you can avoid backcombing altogether – we all know how bad that habit is for our hair! No wonder this Elnett Satin hairsprays are a cult classic!

Top tip: The Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Conditioner can also be used as a hair mask! Perfect for some post-party treatment.

You can pick up all three of these products in our NEW Glamour Party Beauty Edit, along with a box full of plenty party treats.

And the new face of L’Oreal is…

Bianca L'Oreal

It feels like there hasn’t been a bona fide model as the face of a beauty brand for ages. Whilst I bow to Beyonce and am partial to the Geordie twang of Chezza, its refreshingly nice to see a fully-paid up member of the model society front a campaign – step forward the stunningly beautiful Bianca Balti. Not only is an international model both on and off the catwalks, she is also a Victoria’s Secret angel, mother, a muse to Karl Lagerfeld and stars in the 2011 Pirelli Calendar. Plus she is described as being “completely genuine, funny and spontaneous”. AND she has a darn good pout too. Some people have all the luck…

Tried & Tested: L’Oreal Glam Shine 6h lipgloss
Thursday, May 19th, 2011

I’ll start this review on a pedantic note. The colour of Glam Shine 6h lipgloss I tried was labelled ‘Oriental Fuschia’. It was part of a gift set that came with a £15 spend in on L’Oreal products in Boots just before Christmas, and I assume this particular colour was included because L’Oreal realised they’d spelled ‘Fuchsia’ wrong (ha!) and needed to shift the stock, as it’s not available any more. Always Pink is probably the closest dupe.

But onto the gloss itself. You may recognise the Glam Shine range as it’s currently being hawked by ‘national treasure’ Cheryl Cole in every prime-time ad break. It has a very distinctive applicator – L’Oreal say it’s heart-shaped, but I have taken to thinking of this as the ‘vulva’ lipgloss. Yep, try to get that image out of your head now!

Jokes aside, I actually really rate the applicator. It’s soft and spongy and covers the lips quickly and neatly, and is so well-shaped you can probably touch-up without using a mirror (a la Angelina Jolie at the Golden Globes).


Editor’s Secrets: L’Oreal Paris Colour Intensity Shadow
Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Metallic neutrals are my go-to eyeshadow shades for daytime. Give me any old taupe, golden khaki, rose gold or metallic beige, and I’m set. So I’m absolutely loving L’Oreal Paris Color Appeal Chrome Intensity shadows, which offer pretty, shimmery shades in a really rich, almost creamy formula that lasts all day.

Golden Rose 165 is my shade of choice, a pretty pinkish beige/gold that builds up really well without ever looking too heavy or over the top. This is one of the few shadows I apply using the cheapo sponge applicator provided. For some reason, it does a much better job than a brush, which never picks up enough product for my liking (I think because the shadows have a strange creamy feel that doesn’t work so well with the bristles but is perfect on a sponge).

It’s often difficult to find the right gold shade to perfectly suit your skintone, but this is a nice compromise for me as it works beautifully on pink-toned skin where more ‘true’ yellow golds may not. The look is more of a wash of colour than a dramatic, gilded finish, which for daytime is lovely.
