Dispatch from Paris: Diamantissime Holiday Collection From L’Oreal Paris
We’ve been staring somewhat non-stop at this snapshot from the JolieBox team. Those lucky ducks have been playing with Diamantissime by Colour Riche products from L’Oreal Paris. While you might be familiar with the brand, don’t expect to find this diamond-themed holiday collection sitting on the shelves of your local drugstore. We already checked, and sadly, this gorgeous line of sparkly shadows, mascara, lipstick, and most importantly, nail polishes and nail wraps, doesn’t seem to be landing stateside. At least we can console ourselves with one of these gem dust polishes?
Keep up with our weekly dispatch from Paris to see what the chic JolieBox girls are getting themselves up to!
Our JolieBox team is, like us, constantly on the prowl for the newest and hottest brands. This week, they sent us a snapshot from a press presentation with the new French nail polish brand, Nailmatic. While this company is literally only a few months old, they’ve already churned out 63 incredible lacquer colors. Crazy, right?

This past week, while our community manager Rachel was showing us one of her beauty rituals (dumping all of her products in the sink while getting ready), JolieBox community manager Marie was indulging in a more relaxing beauty routine. Armed with her manicure tools, Marie spent the evening with a hot pink Essie polish and a delicious slice of cheesecake. So cute!
We love seeing what the JolieBox ladies are up to every week. To keep up with their adventures in the Parisian beauty world, check back regularly for our dispatch from Paris.
Have we mentioned how great it feels to be an international company now? This week, the JolieBox team sent us a snap of these oh-so-delightful skincare products from Swedish brand M Picaut—a beauty editor favorite. While we’d like it even better if these goodies landed on our desk, for now we’re just happy that Mathilde and Co. are keeping us ahead of the curve on all the chic new European brands!

The ladies of JolieBox certainly know how to have a good time! While we’ve been bracing ourselves for the arrival of Hurricane Sandy here in Manhattan, the JolieBox team was celebrating the opening of the new Melvita boutique with massages, manicures, and an amazing wall of honey.
Coincidentally, Melvita happens to be one of our favorite French brands! Founded by a biologist and beekeeper, Melvita is an all-organic line whose name is a compound of the French words for “honey” and “life”. Appropriate, don’t you think?
You don’t need to go all the way to the Melvita boutique in Paris to try out their amazing products! Melvita Floral Water is one of the best facial mists in the Birchbox shop!
The flirty days of spring and summer may be far behind us, but no one—least of all the Birchbox team!—seems ready to give up on the braid trend. Our friends at JolieBox obviously feel the same, as evidenced by Malvina’s crazy awesome revamped French braid below.
Mathilde says: "We love to give the traditional French braid a bit of a twist!"

On dreary days like this, the quickest way to perk up is with a generous swipe of bright lips. Our Parisian counterparts share our philosophy: look at JolieBox’s Mathilde and Malvina wearing deep berry lips. The shade? Lancôme’s L’absolu Rouge 361.
Mathilde says, “We’re falling for this season’s biggest trend: Bordeaux lips!”
