Liquid -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

Shade selection was terrible. Found one too dark and one too light but no shade in between. Price point is a bit pricey for drugstore. Packaging is good, squeeze tube is equivalent to pump. The fact that I had to buy two to blend the colours to find a match was kind of a rip off, but besides that, finish is awesome. I don't need to set with powder, best matte drugstore foundation I've found.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Butterfly

I don’t like this. I have long lashes, and the mascara does lengthen them greatly but it weighs them down and undoes even the slightest curl. It looks great when I first apply it, but it looks awful after only two hours. It also tends to shed and smear a bit around my eyes. To top it off, it is not cheap either. Just overall not a good product.

Misc Beauty Tools -L'Oreal -Infallible Blending Sponge

I almost gave this a not-so-positive review a week ago. It's different than the original Beauty Blender. So after reading reviews that this was being rated highly as a dupe, I was originally disappointed.
It's a little bigger, and the material/consistency feels a little different as well. It's firmer (but not rock-hard-firm like some of the alleged dupes that are terrible). It takes a little longer for me to clean (probably due to size), so also takes longer to dry. And if I don't squeeze all the water out, it gets weird dents in it until I do (hard to explain...)
BUT, after another week of playing around with it - I think I actually like it better than my Beauty Blenders *gasp!*
On the days I use my L'Oreal sponge, my makeup and skin look noticeably better - less cakey, less dry patches/flakes, more airbrushed... just overall better.
I've been using BB's since 2013. I don't even know how many I've gone through... 8, maybe? I've tossed out several that aged, and currently have 3 in my bathroom. (With one that's so beat up it needs to hit the trash can!) Anyway, beauty blenders are $20 a pop, unless I can get them during a sale - even then, with 10-20% off, still very pricey for someone who goes through quite a few, using and washing daily (Yes, I wash mine daily - either right after, or right before every use. My skin is breakout prone, I can't risk it).
The L'Oreal sponge is ranging in price from $6-9, depending on where you buy - I got it on sale online from Walgreens for like $5 and change. It's maybe a half inch larger (round about?) in length as well as width, and the top isn't as rounded - so that "bouncy" motion that we do with beauty blenders caused me to have a little learning curve with the L'Oreal sponge. I still bounce it around, but it's different (not in a bad way, just different).
But my learning curve was short lived, and I've come to love it. For the price, it is absolutely worth a try. I've washed it a bunch of times, and it looks the same as day 1. Plan to phase the beauty blenders off my bathroom shelf and replace with L'Oreal sponges. They're not dupes (IMO, FWIW), but they are awesome and on my skin, outperform beauty blenders!

Lipstick -L'Oreal -Colour Riche Shine Lipstick

Oh man, I'm in love. I only have one color, Burnished Blush, a kind of nude-pink-mauve hue, but I see myself getting more.

Julalg describes these as the spiritual successors to Revlon's lip butters, and I'd say that's about right. These, however, have much nicer packaging, and I like the formula a lot more. As much as I do love matte lipsticks (albeit not liquid matte lipsticks), I'm happy to see a pigmented glossy lipstick hitting drugstore shelves again. The lip butters from Revlon had great pigmentation, but they quickly got a bit too smeary for me. This L'Oreal formula is a bit lighter in texture but seems to have as good a color payoff, and a bit more shine.

They feel comfy, and I notice no major scent -- though it is the tiniest bit fruity, but very subtle, especially for L'Oréal lipsticks -- and no flavor. Wear time is decent. It's a shiny formula with some slip, so it's not going to last, but the Burnished Blush is on the sheer side (but it has enough pigment where it definitely appears on lips). I like these as much, and maybe more, than my most recent lip love, which are the Urban Decay Vice lipstick sheers. Those are slightly tackier with a bit better staying power, but the L'Oréal is more subtle while on the lips while lending a nice juicy look. Overall, I really love this.

The packaging is lovely, too, with that clear, sheer plastic segmented casing that is also nice and sturdy.

My one complaint: I wish it didn't cost $9 or $10 a bullet, mainly because I know I'm going to be itching to buy more of them.

Its an "OK" mascara, i prefer TooFaced Better Than Sex.
I find you need 3 coats to give decent volume, and its a nightmare to remove. I always wake up with dark smudges under my eyes,no matter how well i think I've done at removing it all.. this never normally happens!
Unimpressed.
