This is the worst mascarea applicator i have ever used. It clumps on the brush. I really don't know if the product works because I won't buy it again.



Highlighters -L'Oreal -True Match Lumi Glotion natural glow enhancer

I bought this on a whim in the colour 902/Light Glow (not sure if that's the lightest or 2nd lightest shade). I don't find this imparts much in the way of an all-over glow, which disappointed me. I was hoping it would give similar results to my Becca Backlight Priming Filter but at a lower cost. Sadly, this doesn't really deliver much glow at all unless I apply it so heavily that I'm left with a greasy face. Once summer is over and I'm wearing foundation on a daily basis, I might try mixing this in with my foundation to see if I like how it works when used like that. As things stand, though, I wouldn't repurchase as this just doesn't deliver for me.

The color is beautiful but if you are looking for a low cost dupe try Yves Rocher eyeshadow in Loose Pearls-Intense illuminating effect. It’s identical.


Hair Color -L'Oreal -Color Zap

on 8/12/2018 1:05:00 AM

My go-to for color removal is One n Only Colorfix, since it's mainly sulfur and damage free. Sulfur just shrinks the dye molecule, leaving the hair's structure unchanged. Bleach on the other hand...bleaches out the color, damaging the keratin.

However unfortunately Sally Beauty seems to either be running low on supply, or it's been discontinued. Because they didn't have a single box within a 50 mile radius.So I opted for Loreal ColorZap, fully expecting to be disappointed.

While standing in line I noted the ingredients seemed to be those similar to a bleach and developer combo. I know ingredients pretty well. But I told myself there's no way they'd advertise it differently and jack up the price so much. A company wouldn't possibly be *that* shady, right? I see sulfur derivatives on the list... but those are also often found in powder lightener. It's the ammonia/peroxide that grabbed my attention.

Welp, long story short this isn't just a bleach/developer. It's basically a bleach bath. That's right, you're paying for added shampoo to make it foam. I could never understand why reviewers were so pissy about being left with orange hair, as that's typically done by the haircolor process itself. And the Colorzap box notes that! But now that I've given it a go, I totally see why everyone blames this for taking out the underlying pigment.

This isn't a damage free option. Even with olaplex, my hair felt like this was another round of bleaching. It's likely less damaging than traditional bleach... but that's only because they added in the shampoo and likely a very low developer. Some of you might not notice any damage, but I can't get on board.

I could have just used the powder lightener I had at home and mixed with warm water to get the same results. Hell... even the directions on ColorZap note you can use warm water instead of the "activator".

Solely sulfur based color removers do a lot better job for me than bleach baths. There's no reason for me to ever repurchase this product. The base I was left with, wasn't nearly as even as advertised.

Foundations -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro-Glow 24HR Foundation

I really wanted to love this foundation. Great long lasting coverage, not too dry looking. However, it completely messed up my skin. Cystic pimples, large and painful. I rarely used it, but I had a weekend that was spent in humid, hot conditions and I wanted to use something that wouldn’t melt off in 10 minutes. It sure did last. But the aftermath is horrible and I decided to pitch the product. I couldn’t find my exact match so I used two different shades and blended them together before applying. I’ve no idea how this stuff would fair out for someone with no skin issues but if you’re prone to even the smallest of breakouts? I’d stay away from this product. My skin is still trying to clear up and I used it last weekend.
