Hugh Laurie Named New Face of L’Oreal

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Hugh Laurie

by Kori Ellis

House star Hugh Laurie has been named the new brand ambassador for the L’Oreal Paris Men Expert range. Dr House joked that he originally thought L’Oreal had “made a mistake” when they approached him.

Cyril Chapup, the Global Brand President of L’Oreal Paris, added: “Hugh Laurie is the perfect example of a modern man – genuine, uninhibited, strong and willing to pursue his passions to the end.

“We are very excited that he is the spokesperson for these new liberated men!”

Hugh Laurie joins female L’Oreal ambassadors Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Cheryl Cole, Gwen Stefani, Jane Fonda and Rachel Weisz, along with male ambassadors Gerard Butler and Patrick Dempsey, as faces of the L’Oreal brand.

Wash and Glow

Monday, April 18th, 2011

By: Erin Brady

If it’s chilly and not quite spring-like in your neck of the woods, don’t fret, spring will be here eventually and when it does arrive, you’ll want to be ready!  “Ready” means willing and able to shed those tights, boots, long sleeves and so on.  For me, it’s always liberating on that first sunny day when you can loose the tights and your legs can breathe again.  While self-tanner pre-Memorial Day may seem aggressive, a subtle glow never hurt anyone! http://cdn.blogs.sheknows.com/articles.lovingyou.com/2011/04/image.jpg

Enter St. Tropez Skin Illuminator, the pocket-size product that was all the rage at London Fashion Week.  It finishes the skin with a gorgeous iridescent sheen, can be worn alone or to complement a tan.  Now available in Rose Gold, Gold and Violet, each shade contours and highlights, whether you want that 70′s deep golden glow, flushed/flirty polish of rose, or the best-selling illumination magic of Violet, this collection has you covered.  Finally a product you can use both before AND after spending time in the sun, a must for sure!

Another personal favorite is L’Oreal’s Sublime Bronze One Day Tinted Gel.  This bronze colored gel provides a sheer, buildable tint of color that lasts for one day!  Maple extract and caramel are natural colorants that give a totally natural glow, so it blends well on even the palest of legs.  The color makes it easy to rub the gel on evenly and i dries in a matter of seconds without a chemical smell.  I used it recently and loved how it gave my legs the perfect glow and even though I was worried it might streak if I went to the gym that night, it did no such thing, it stayed put until I scrubbed it off in the shower.  Glowing perfection!http://cdn.blogs.sheknows.com/articles.lovingyou.com/2011/04/ADKwrmkEmcpa4ZsUM-gbEFZUReh0QcYH_DBQ5AYI4YSr6qY8S-v1ICGZdG39JkH1hYPLGbE43d0rIO2kKgyePZOWoMt5gJ5qLun79YveAYabWt6wuIt05avEvb8IcUoAzwnH7X8gbwzhWnvQCNXl0fSi.jpg


Hot Hair To Put Some Spring in Your Step

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

By: Erin Brady

Go mad this March for the latest hair care launches, sure to leave you coiffed, colored and chic in time for the first day of spring:

  • V05 Perfect Hold Styling Line: the time you’ve got in the morning with products that actually work and last without breaking the bank.  This new line from classic hair care brand VO5 has four products to deliver top styling performance, affordably.  Each product is formulated with a unique polymer bend that gives long-lasting hold and a lightweight feel.
    • Perfect Hold Styling Hairspray: lightweight aerosol hairspray formulated with a select blend of polymers, provides strong hold keeping your style in place all day (non-aerosol formula also available).
    • Perfect Hold Styling Mousse: this mousse prevents frizz and holds curls in place while providing bounce and shine.
    • Perfect Hold Styling Gel: unlike most gels, this provides hold without stiffness, even in humid weather (we tested this out down south!)
    • VO5 products are available nationwide at drugstores, food stores and mass merchandisers with a suggest retail price of just $2!  Visit www.VO5.com to learn more.
  • Get that elusive undone-yet-done hairstyle this spring with the new Bb. Texture hair(un)dressing Crème. The perfect textured look can sometimes take much longer than expected and dozens of products, but this new crème takes the best of a gel and combines it with the best of a cream for an alcohol-free blend that will create volume, texture and that desired piecey-ness that few products can achieve.  Work the crème through damp hair, start with a small amount, let sit for a minute, then loosen and ruffle hair freehand, add more crème to achieve your desired rolled out of bed look.  Use a diffuser or more volume all over.  Available in salons nationwide or at www.bumbleandbumble.com for $26.
  • Frizz-free in time for spring or warm weather getaways, you must go purchase L’Oreal’s  EverSleek Frizz Taming Crème Serum.  This serum is one of seven products in the new L’Oreal EverSleek Sulfate-Free Smoothing System of shampoos, conditioners and stylers. Free of heavy silicones and formulated with argan, sunflower and olive oils, it weightlessly smoothes hair for 48-hour frizz control.  Use 1-2 pumps on wet hair for a sleek and shiny mane, without feeling weighed down or coated.  This formula is also 100% vegan and is not tested on animals.  Get this before the temps warm up and it flies off the shelves, available at drugstores and mass retailers nationwide for $8.99.
  • Rita Hazan Root Concealer Temporary Color Touch-Up Spray:  Rita Hazan has given Hollywood’s finest the most gorgeous highlights and colors for years.  For those lucky enough to receive her services in NYC, they can attest that she constantly has new tips and tricks to meet her clients’ needs.  Her first product innovation will prove to change the way women cover up their roots in between salon visits.  The Root Concealer Temporary Color Touch-Up Spray will help solve that age-old problem.  The spray bottle has a nozzle that sprays the product directly where you want it: on top, underneath layers and even covering extra large patches of hair.  The spray will remain on until washed out, even rain won’t stand in your way.  Available in four shades: blonde, light brown, dark brown/black and red, so all hair types are covered.  Available at Sephora.com now or in Sephora stores on March 24 for $24.
