L'Oreal L'Or Electric Collection For Cannes International Film Festival 2012

This year the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival is being held from 16th May to the 27th May 2012. 2012 is especially significant to us as L’Oreal Paris is celebrating a 15 year partnership with the Film Festival as its official Make Up artiste. For the last 15 years, many talented makeup artistes of the Brand have created glamorous looks for a wide range of celebrities that have walked the red carpet. 
To celebrate this year's Festival, which has been dubbed “Cannes electric”, L’Oréal Paris will electrify the event with its new "L'Or" range of makeup, entitled "L’Or Electric". This collection has been specially created for the Cannes Film Festival, and will enable L'Oréal Paris' make-up artists to create the most daring and glamorous looks on the Croisette. Eyes, lips and nails will be full of bold colour. Celebrities will sport the Glam Team's inspired creations on the red carpet throughout the 12 days of the Festival.
This collection, which is all set to electrify the red carpet, has been inspired by the extravagance of the 80s: post-modernism, neon, Studio.54, day-glo, new wave and the beginnings of electronic music. Three Indian faces- Freida Pinto, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Sonam A Kapoor, will sport this electrifying look on the red carpet. 

Old Colorbar Blushes- Discontinued?

I was at the Colorbar store at Select City Walk the other day, and was shocked to see none of those Rs.250/375 blushes. You know, like: Peachy Rose, Just Earth, Cinnabar, etc. At first, I thought they just revamped the packaging, but then I saw the different shade names. I asked the SA, and she told me:
"We don't have those anymore.", she grinned, like it's good news she's telling me.
Huh?
Have they replaced them with those new Cheekillusion blushes with the new packaging which are priced at Rs.575? The shades are not even similar to the original ones. There's this one shade 'Coral Pink' which is NOT like Peachy Rose.

The old blushes are 'Out Of Stock' in the online stores I checked at. Even in the website, they are only selling 3 shades of the old blushes.

If they really are discontinued, I can imagine how many loyal customers they will lose. I, for one, was thinking about buying a few Peachy Rose blushes for a giveaway....and I ain't buying Cheekillusion.

I see what Colorbar is trying to be (read: copy)- INGLOT.

Colorbar Lip Pots = Inglot Lip Paints
Colorbar Take Me I Am Lip Pencils, Rs.699 = Inglot Lip Crayons, Rs.680 (Yeah, right)


Keep in mind INGLOT products are Paraben-free & Cruelty-free.

But whatever. Copy whoever. I just feel they shouldn't chuck something that made them 'popular' in the first place.


Can somebody confirm this? In case I'm wrong, you can go pull the SA's hair for wrong/disturbing information.
