Since 1997, L'Oreal has been committed to the fight against ovarian cancer, and has raised more than $19 million for the cause. Each year, they release a Limited Edition Color of Hope Collection to help raise awareness and funding for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. $1.00 from each and every item sold from this collection goes to the OCRF. You can view all of products in the collection at the above link, and here's a look at the the items I picked up.
There are two palettes available, and I selected Sentimental Splendor. There are a total of four polish shades, and I picked up two of them, Whimsical and Valiant. The collection also offers two lip sticks and a lip gloss.
Whimsical is a subtle sandy pink shade, filled with tiny not-so-subtle matching foil glitter, giving it a somewhat metallic finish. This is a nice neutral shade that's dressed up with the sparkly glitter. The formula was very good, and I used two coats.
Valiant is a medium grey shade that also has matching tiny glitter, but it's a bit less sparkly than Whimsical. The formula on this was excellent, and required just one coat.
I picked up the Sentimental Splendor palette because I was drawn to the shades...primarily the green one, because it's a duo chrome. It looks like a deep green in the palette, but it flashes from a reddish brown to green, and it's far more obvious than I was able to capture in my photos. These shades aren't too pigmented dry, so I've been applying them with a spritz of Reviva Labs Rosewater Facial Spray on my brush first, for a deeper color. All of them except the green shade seem a bit chalky dry, so the wet method seems to work best for me.
I always like to support a good cause, and when there's nail polish and make up involved, all the better! Each year I always see some shades of products that I like from this collection, and I'm planning on using some of that green eye shadow shade to mix into a nail polish. Did you pick anything up from this collection?
