Welcome to Me (2014)

welcometome_bornunicornThe dressing table at the tv studio where Alice Klieg (Kristen Wiig) has her Welcome to Me show is pretty busy.

lorealcolorrichelipstick_bornunicornA gold tube of L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick. Judging from the shade sticker on the bottom of the tube, it should be a dark colour.

lorealglamshine_bornunicornThere’s also an open tube of L’Oreal Glam Shine lip gloss, in a nude/beige shade.


In the back row, there’s a tube of L’Oreal Original Voluminous mascara.


The blue bottle with the white cap is another product by L’Oreal, Clean Artiste, an eye make-up remover.

The white bottle next to it is Tatcha pure one-step camellia cleansing oil.


Last but not least, there’s a pot with incorporated brush of L’Oreal True Match Naturale all-over mineral glow.

Thanks to Emily in the comments for the Tatcha id.

I’m an Albatraoz (2014)




lorealcolorriche_redlipstick_bornunicornI had never heard of AronChupa until this morning, when a Facebook friend of mine posted this video on her page. I really don’t care for the song by the Swedish dj (this type of dance music is not my cup of tea), but the video which it was launched with has an interesting detail. One of the opening scenes is set in a dressing room, where some white-clad girls are getting ready for a show. One of them uses L’Oreal Made for Me Intense lipstick in #297 Red Passion.


Pretty Little Liars S05E18 (Oh What Hard Luck Stories They All Hand Me)



500There are a tube of Maybelline Great Lash mascara and a bottle of L’Oreal Paris EverCurl Hydracharge leave-in cream on Aria’s desk.

I usually don’t write about medicines/vitamin capsules, but my friend Jennifer, who identified L’Oreal cream for me, told me the jar next to it contains Rainbow Light certified organic women’s multivitamin vegetarian capsules. I guess Aria needs them to keep up with school and all the complicated adventures in her life.

Gone Girl (2014)

gonegirl_bornunicorn (6)One of the most dramatic scenes of the movie sees the protagonist, Amy Elliott Dunne (Rosamund Pike), cutting her hair and dying it dark blonde. She uses a L’Oreal hairdye, which I first identified as being part of the Superior Preference line. The only odd detail is the cap of the color gel: it should be gold, but in the movie it’s black.

He buys some toiletries for her, including a box of L’Oreal Superior Preference hair dye in Natural Blonde. Ta-dah! My id was correct. The fact that the same hairdye appears twice makes sense to me. “I just want you to be you again,” he repeats, and going back to blonde is definitely a step in that direction.
