You may have noticed that L'Oreal debuted their midsummer collection a few weeks ago, Made For Me Pinks, pink lipsticks, glosses, and nail polish ranging from pale ballet pink to bright magenta. This polish line spoke to my classic-loving heart more than the summer jellies but they didn't feel very unique, except for one. This is Rosy Macaron.
First off, I have to give L'Oreal props for getting their cookie right this time. A polish in this spring's Versailles Romance collection was named Macaroon Me Madly, and, as was pointed out here by Pushing Polish, a macaroon and a macaron are decidedly different, and only one is French.
Rosy Macaron is a vibrant ever-so-slightly salmon leaning rosy pink with a silver shimmer laced through it that translates as pearly on the fingertips. The color is gorgeous and makes me feel to very timelessly chic and-- dare I say it-- French, like I should be sipping coffee and nibbling pastries, wearing sky high heels and all black at some cozy little pâtisserie. The lovely feeling and imagery this polish conjures up for me truly makes the not so great formula worth the trouble. I used three coats for full opacity, and, like most L'Oreal polishes, this does need it. It's a little brushstrokey but it is self-leveling; it's thick and tends to pool. The brush, which I'm usually very fond of in L'Oreal colors, was oddly cut on the bias. I don't know if I got lucky and grabbed a wonky one or if this is how they're doing things now... either way, I don't like it.
... but like I said, I adore this color.
The L'Oreal Made For Me Pinks polish collection is available wherever L'Oreal products are sold for $5.99. I got mine at Fred Meyer.
One more thing, because it made me happy-- when I have early shifts, aka banking hours, I like to go run the bleachers at the local high school when I get off work. Yesterday, there was some sort of parent meeting on said bleachers so I had to adjust my course a little bit. There were also a lot of kids around, and at some point, a group of three little girls decided what I was doing looked like a lot of fun, so they ran bleachers with me for a while :) Cool, no?
Thanks for reading and have a lovely day! ♥
