Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I promised myself I’d be faithful to Urban Decay Perversion, but I am a serial adulteress when it comes to mascara. I just can’t help wondering if there’s something better out there - if there really is such a thing as The One. I have kissed a lot of frogs and found a few...barons and earls and such, if not actually a prince (after Estée Lauder killed my true love in the 90s). This isn’t a frog. I can’t remember how it came to my attention, but it was on offer for about £5 and I thought the packaging was cute. The tube is super light and excellent for travelling (one lives in my handbag for emergencies). The brush is soft and brushy, not a horrid scratchy plastic thing, and separates my lashes really nicely. The formula itself is great to apply, suitably black, slightly on the drier side, and gives a feathery look that’s still natural(ish). I don’t know what would happen if you started slapping hundreds of coats on, because I’m still partially trapped in 1990 (come on, Violator, if nothing else) and get twitchy about more than one coat for daytime. It’s a brilliant work mascara, almost weightless to wear and doesn’t smudge or flake. My only criticism would be that a tube doesn’t last me very long - I’m guessing it’s light cos it’s half empty.

Eyeliner -L'Oreal -super liner silkissime waterproof eyeliner 24H

I have this in black and it is very nice. I love black eyeliner, my gateway drug into this makeup life was eyeliner and mascara. This applies and wears like a $20 eyeliner and it isn’t. I use this to tightline mostly but have used it on the upper lash line and it does not smudge in either place. This past week I have been doing my favorite everyday look which is a full matte base but no eyeshadow. Then I put on lashes and tightline with this for those mysterious eyes. Wears like iron on me and comes off pretty easy. Gives more playtime than the Milani one before it sets but the Milani is my love as well. Will continue to purchase.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Million Lashes

HG product! Basically the only mascara I've used for a few years now (waterproof version). I've found that other mascaras tend to fall throughout the day giving me a raccoon look but this one stays in place all day and gives me a very natural but noticeable look. Yes, it is a little more expensive than other drug store mascaras but if you compare that to higher end mascaras this is a steal

I had really high hopes for this mascara. Sadly it didn't give me either good length or volume as I thought it would. I have really long lashes and felt that it didn't do anything as it is said to do. I would not buy this again.


Concealers -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

I've been using this concealer since I first discovered it this past summer, and it's quickly become my favourite every day concealer. The coverage is a bit sheer so sometimes I have to layer it with another concealer or a color corrector underneath if my dark circles are particularly bad that day. It's lightweight, blends beautifully, and holds up really well. Never cakes or accentuates fine lines, just really flattering light coverage that brightens up under the eyes. Love it. It may be worth mentioning, however, that around the time this concealer launched, I watched tons of reviews on this concealer, and there were a few beauty gurus who claimed this burned under their eyes. I did not experience anything of the sort....apparently there is alcohol in the formula which is probably what causes the irritation for some people...so if you have sensitive skin or eyes that's something you should be aware of. Another thing worth mentioning is the color range is really lame. I use the fair shade and it's pretty dark. I strongly suggest you use one shade lighter than you normally would....and if you're super fair-sorry there's nothing here for you...😢

Eyeliner -L'Oreal -Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner

I think finally L'Oreal has gotten their Infallible 24HR eyeliner formula right. This is a long-wearing gel liner in a pencil form. The color is highly dense in pigment like kohl, goes on amazingly smooth and sets within 10 secs. It does not smudge or wear off throughout the day. There are six colors all matte(black/brown/dark grey/bright pastel blue/pastel purple/beige). I used the beige in my waterline and it did stay on, wished they had a more of a greyish beige color instead. I accidently smudged the tip across my lashes one day while I was tightlining my upper lashline and it coated my lashes like I had like used with my waterproof Voluminous mascara--the pigment is that dense! One concern I do have is it is tough after you sharpen the pencil to get the same type of sharp tip and I think pencils are kind of a pain to maintain and waste of product. These are on the pricey side too, so get it when it is on sale. IMO, this beats all long-wear pencil liners out there on the market, if there are any others that claim they are 24HR hehe.

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

I really like this foundation. I wear 120 in Maybelline Fit Me matte and pore less and 520 light in CG matte B.B. cream. Shade 102 shell beige in this works well for my skin tone once this foundation sets for about 15 minutes. I was a little scared because when first applied the shade appeared a little too light and the foundation looked mask like! But as I said before after about 15 minutes or so the mask look goes away and the color blends in perfectly. I’d say this is medium full coverage on me. Definitely provides a lot more coverage than the CG B.B. cream and a bit more than the Fit me. I like all three foundations pretty much equally well and continue to purchase them. I did however discover I can NOT use this on my eye area because it makes it look horrible enhancing every fine line I have which most likely is from this products mattifying effects. I use concealer only on my eye are and will use a bit more of this to spot conceal any spots or scars I have going on. It doesn’t keep me matte all day but neither does anything else I use. I like how I can wear this multiple ways...lighter for daily wear and build it up for the times I dress up. I don’t generally use powder over anything I wear because I am lazy but I don’t think most would need to with this since it dries with a powdery finish. I haven’t tried to wear it 24 hours however it wears well throughout the day. Of course it doesn’t look fresh like I just applied at the end of the day but it wears off evenly and doesn’t get patchy.

I love this concealer. Its a natural, non cakey, long lasting concealer. My skin is combo dry. Slighlty oily t-zone. Its very lightweight natural. Not full coverage. I love it. I just wish there were more colors. The lightest one is very pink and fair. The next one matches my skin tone so theres a big gap. Overall i reccomend it if you can find a good shade.


Brows -L'Oreal -Brow Artist Plumper

Obsessed with this stuff. Got it to try instead of gimme brow which was my holy grail for years and now I would never go back to benefit! The lightest shade of this seems to have a coppery metallic tone so I avoided it and went for the darker shade. I have dark blonde brows but it's not too dark for them as the consistency is thin and just coats the hairs to slightly darken them. Lasts all day without smudging. Personally I don't find this too crunchy feeling but it will definitely add texture to your brows, something to be aware of if you prefer a softer powder finish.
Price and amount of product is fantastic, absolutely in love with this product, can't recommend it enough. I apply on top of a clear brow gel so I can just use this for darkening my very blonde hairs instead of using this to control the direction of the hairs as that may be too much product.
Overall 10/10 in love! X

Decent mascara but has the ability to clump. I find applying at the base lash and wiggling for volume and then using your last stroke to add length works best for me because I hate clumpy lashes

I am basically a beginner at makeup despite decades of wearing it. So much new stuff & steps have evolved and I am overwhelmed!
Thought I'd try to buy quality and not the cheapest products on the shelf for a change.
Started watching Youtube vids for the first time ever and reading reviews.
So many people say they like this mascara!
Spent way way too long at the store trying to decide, and had something else in hand when I saw Lash Paradise, and on sale.
Figured thousands of other women must be on to something, right?
WRONG.
This stuff is goopy and clumpy and does nothing to improve the look of my lashes.
I have to scrape off most of it before I start.
I prefer a more natural look and this ain't it!
I think I need to stick w mascaras with the rubber nubby wands rather than bristles like LP has.
Overall fail for me.
Very disappointing since I tried so hard to get it right. Now I'm back at zero.

Moisturizers -L'Oreal -Youth Code Dark Spot SPF 30 Day Cream Moisturizer

My HG moisturizer for sure! I'm so into this, I'm on my second jar. I actually use it at night instead, and the results are amazing. This has definitely helped to fade my post-acne marks and redness. Even if I get a new pimple, this is really good at helping it to clear up in a matter of days. I've also noticed that my skin looks a bit more even after using this. The only cons are that the price is pretty high up there, but I don't mind paying extra since it works so well for me. And the other con is that it has a pretty strong sunscreen smell, but since I'm asleep while it works its magic, the smell doesn't bother me so much. It can look a little greasy at first, as it says its "luminous", but if you use this in the night like me, it's not a problem, and your face won't be greasy in the morning. I will definitely continue to repurchase this as it does such a wonderful job on my skin!

I was a bit sceptical to try this mascara, but my favourite YouTube beauty guru (Tati) loves it so much and raves about it all the time, so I decided to give it try. I ended up jumping on board the bandwagon with this one! Totally understand why it gets so much hype now. This stuff is really great! Doesn't flake, doesn't smudge, lasts all day, and the packaging is super cute. It gives length, lots of volume, and doesn't clump (which I really love). I love for my lashes to look full, feathery and fanned out, and this mascara does it all. It's great at separating the lashes and giving that flared, flirty effect. Definitely one of my faves!

This foundation is kind of gross! It is thick and goopy and just looks so heavy on the skin. It does not last, and it oxidizes terribly on me. Would NOT buy again.

This foundation isn't too bad. It looks great when you first put it on, it just doesn't stay that way....I find it settles into every tiny little line and crease, even with a primer. The coverage is medium and not very buildable.
