Conditioner -L'Oreal -Elvive - Extraordinary Clay Re-Balancing Conditioner

This is basically a Garnier product in a L'Oreal bottle. L'Oreal owns Garnier, so I'm not surprised to see some dup products in their grab bag, but I am surprised they didn't change the scent. That green apple scent is a dead give away when product was meant for Garnier. I'm not a huge fan of the famous green apple scent. In this case, it has a hidden benefit though.

When I picked up this conditioner I was hoping for something along the lines of Aussie Curing Muddy, which was discontinued a long time ago and which I liked a lot. The L'Oreal edition is billed as being good for oily scalp and dry ends, which is my exact hair type - I have a naturally sebaceous scalp and I color my hair so the ends get dry. The consistency of the conditioner is nothing like the Curing Muddy, which actually tried to emulate mud. It's a light cream consistency like just about any other 'cone free conditioner in the drugstore. It is nice to be able to condition without worrying about getting it too close to my scalp for a change, I'll give it that.

What I found out this product is really useful for, kind of by accident, is second day hair. Unlike a lot of other conditioners, the scent remains strong through a second day, and it won't get that weird greasy sheen that silicone conditioners tend to get on the second day. If you need that kind of performance, give this one a try. I... don't really need that kind of performance, so I'm not going to repurchase. But I didn't feel it would be a complete review without mentioning that.



Eye Shadow -L'Oreal -Infallible Paints

on 2/25/2018 4:50:00 AM

Saw these on ULTA site and threw a couple into my cart. I honestly wasn’t expecting much but have to say these are really great. It is a double ended cream shadow with a doe foot applicator. The two I purchased were Fish Net and Cool Ivory, as I am always on the lookout for a replacement to my beloved Chanel Cream Eyeshadow that was my mainstay until discontinued about 10 years ago.

These are described as being waterproof, long wearing, etc. I cannot attest to the claim of it being waterproof, but they are sweat proof and do wear exceptionally well without budging for about 14-16 hours, until I take my make-up off.

The colors I got were neutral, and with the intention of swiping on a single color and adding eyeliner for a quick eye. I plan to try additional colors and see how they blend using more than a single color on my eyes.

As far as application, I just swiped with the applicator and blended with my finger, let it dry and then added a thick line of black liner with a slight wing on my upper lid only and a couple of coats of mascara...nice look in under 2 minutes.


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!
