I'm surprised and disappointed at all of the negative reviews regarding this foundation. I actually look forward to getting up in the morning and looking in the mirror after I have applied this foundation, I had not felt that way in years!. Finally I found a foundation I love and yet I fear with all the negative reviews this product will be discontinued, hence I'm going to load up on this product, a lifetimes worth, lol

I love glycolic acid pads so I was excited to give these a try. I used them everyday for a couple weeks and I noticed a big improvement in my skin. I my pores were completely clean and any clogged pores came out super easily. I do think that using them everyday was a bit harsh for me; after a few weeks my skin felt like it was burned. I stopped using them and started back with the Nip + Fab pads, which have a lower percentage of gycolic, and my skin is looking a bit less irritated. I will try these again if I start noticing dullness in my skin but only a few times a week instead of everyday.


Blush -L'Oreal -Touch On Color

This is such an older product now, I am not sure you can get it in store any longer.

I did see it on ebay which was a relief because I just started using it again after having it sit in my make up drawer for literally a few years.
The reason being was initial disappointment with the shade GO GO Gold just really not performing any miracles in terms of visibility especially for the price point. Which is basically the reason I never threw it out to begin with... that or due to my liking the packaging/ thinking it was cool and cute looking (because I do think I actually got it on sale for maybe $5.00 as opposed to the $15.00 they are now trying to tout it at online) - & well still, even at $5.00, I was kind of peeved to think I had to throw it away because it wasn't returnable at that point.
No one was going to want it if I offered to give it away, because literally, it was doing the very limit of next to nothing in terms of being able to be seen on your face. At all. Like. It was ridiculous how badly you could not see this product at all after applying it.

I am sure that was the worst case of it I had ever seen. ESPECIALLY with a name like " GOGO GOLD" (??) I mean... I was just really expecting a Heck of a lot more out of it then what it gave. WAY more.

That said: Now in the NEW age of forgivable "BUILDABLE" products then I am supposing we can put it in THAT category and give it a retry.SO- I LAAAYERED this product on my highlight points TO NO TOMORROW, and guess what ?
I am Suddenly now in love with this color.
Yes, it's got this kind of weird powdery texture - not a cream, not a powder - but if you SLATHER it on layer over layer - it WILL actually START to come through for you.

*There should have been a disclaimer previously when it first time out, which of course there was NOT & many other reviews I have seen were also dogging it into the ground for the same reason I was - because THEN we were not expecting to HAVE to do more, in particular with a $10.00 or above product (RIGHT?!). I can't imagine the # of people who probably just threw it out or returned it at that time, if they could, lol.smh.
Anyway. The pan is a (decent) circular 'mini' compact style, with a clear top, mirror that clicks down from the bottom of the gold colored plastic container with you can stick a sponge in I forget now if there was one, or what might have happened to what ever it had come with originally, if anything, but there is a mirror from the bottom, even though it makes it a little bit awkward to notice/ remember that it is even there- BUT, there IS a mirror on the bottom of it so if you remember that in a jam and have it in your purse with you when you're out or if you have no compact mirror, right.

Then, at least that little bit of "back up" mirror is an option there, again, depending on how you use it, and if you remember that it is there. I forget because I use my fingers to apply, but anyway. It is there.

That all said, wear time for me has so far been about honestly, a good 5-7 hours so far, so that is why I say "if " you carry it on you. If you put enough on to begin with (which you HAVE to in order to see it at all/ get any point or benefit out of it), then you really don't need too many or (any) touch ups as far as I'm concerned, but that could depend on what you're doing at the same time.

I just ran errands & hit an appointment in it - disclaimer: I did NOT go to the bar or clubbing in it. SO. Depending on the individual, I couldn't give a "sweat test" report or anything necessarily come to think of it, but for me, for everyday highlighter use, I genuinely enjoy the color it is giving me (very complimentary on my skin tone of fair to medium (Ie: former NC 30 MAC under-eye concealer/ or studio fix powder foundation girl here, if that helps anyone-) & the right tones/ formulas are sometimes hard to nail) .

For me, it really allows me to use no foundation in keeping with today's trend, but brings me to life in the face in this winter times.
This might sound a bit wack, but I literally have tried it on my entire face and liked the outcome, with a mix of other products on top over it. Like a primer nearly.

I do not know how much more quickly I might go through the pan now in light of that, because while the packaging itself is like an inch thick, again there is a mirror on the bottom taking up half that space so I am not sure how deep exactly it is - checking the grams might help & jack me back into thinking that way again since mac days, but the writing is EXTREMEMLY small on the back, so I doubt it & if really if in this particular case, the way I myself use it, find out if that is really going to matter or not.
Ok- no, I can't see for looking how many grams on the bottom.
Hm. Maybe online will know. Just sec.
Ok. It says 0.11 ounces ( so, just under one ounce), 2,2 grams or so. Hm.

That said - I'm worried now that I like the tone as much as I do ( not garish, but a nice brightening glow (imo/ to me/ for me) the pick me up look it gives when I thought I was looking kind of tired, because, though I just found it for DIRT cheap, the shipping ALONE is nearly $20-!!!! like... 6 TIMES THE COST OF THE PRODUCT ITSELF !!! S.M.H..

I'm trying not laugh right now, because if I'm honest, I actually don't really find it funny (sigh/eyeroll) considering you DON'T get as much product in it as you would in a similar cost product, maybe even from actual MAC itself, which, if you ask my honest opinion, is an actual industry brand that (sort of) has more rights imo to charge that way a bit more than L'Oréal does(/?), just for that reason alone, regardless of how long L'Oréal has been a "mainstay" brand for a super long time, they (are)still just basically at the regular drug store aisle in truth, & DO offer certain things at more affordable price(s) (generally-ish).
Well. We'll have to see now by how long this lasts if I have to keep searching a

I'm a late 60's woman with mostly normal, pale skin, with a slightly oily T-zone. I do have some lines around my mouth and large pores on my cheeks. I find this product erases my pores and gives me a matter, porcelain appearance. It didn't take care office my wrinkles, but I didn't expect it to. I'd buy it again in a blink.

Don't understand the youtube hype about this product.... It is good enough, however I experience some fall out, smudging and clumping which got worse after a few days of opening the tube. It dried quite quickly, also. Not the worse mascara I have, but also not my favourite. Average...

I have long but very straight Asian lashes and was so excited to try this mascara that is raved about by YouTube influencers.

The brush was a lot bigger than I was expecting and unfortunatley within 10 seconds of applying this to my curled lashes the curl completely dropped and my lashes were basically like I hadn’t curled them at all. To be fair to this mascara I find this happens a lot for me with non Asian mascara (Heroine Kiss Me is my HG) but I really had high hopes for this.

After recurling my lashes the curl did last all day and didn’t give me panda eyes even though I went to the gym. However it wasn’t worth the effort waiting for it to dry and having to recurl, will not repurchase.

Just bought this product, was super excited after watching several youtube videos to be sure i was investing smartly and in all videos it looked great! i really would have loved it if it had worked for me but unfortunately, i got home went straight to my mirror and after washing and drying my face i applied the bb cream in the lightest shade. i started massaging it into my skin gently and it turned bright orange, like a tangerine or those cones u see in the street. yeah... i tried again later and still bright orange. My skin is quite pale right now and fair so i am not sure why this bb cream appears as tho i have the same spray tan as donald trump. Really disappointed because i was so excited to have such a great new product! :(

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous in Carbon Black

I'm always looking for a good drugstore mascara (guess the hunt never stops) and because this was on sale at the drugstore, I decided to give it a try and it was such a failure. I've been using the Voluminous Million Lashes for years and the Lash Paradise is just so good that I didn't expect the Carbon Black to be a disappointment. It gave me racoon eyes and no matter how many coats I put on, it's just not black enough. I always buy the waterproof one and the blackest mascara available but this is just a total fail.

At first I really enjoyed using this product as it did seem to give volume to my lashes. However, This quickly faded as the product is extremely thick and clumps on the brush. It brings out far too much product. It gathers around the opening. It has dried out far to quickly and this was about £12. I prefer my £6 Mascara from Rimmel. This product needs to be redesigned.

Hi!
In the photo(my shade) is 3D/W-Golden Beige.I thought that my skin needs,for winter,a darker shade,but this one is fine.For summer I want to try 5D/5W-Golden Sand.
Simple packaging,but sturdy(thick glass).Colorless so you can see how much of the product is left in the bottle.1 press of the botton will release enough product to cover the face.Apply with a wet sponge,by dabbing.Medium to maximum coverage(depends on what are you trying to cover).
For me this foundation did the trick.Didn't oxidize.It lasted 8-9 hours on my face.With a primer,of course.I haven't tried to wear it longer,but I'm sure it would last.
I recommend to try it on the jawbone not the hand.The skin is diffrent so you got more chances on finding the right shade.
If you got the right shade is definitely Accord Parfait(=perfect match;yes I got the Frech product).

I really want to like this foundation but I think it has caused a crop of tiny blackheads below my mouth on either side of my chin. I don't usually get blackheads, and as this is the only thing I have changed up, I suspect this is the culprit. Apart from that, I loved the way this looked on me. I should have known better than to trust a drugstore foundation. I've never had any luck with them.

This will turn your hair brassy. The packaging is also low quality - even if you squeeze the dye gently it will explode out the other end and make a mess. Cheap product, not worth your time.

This review is for the non-waterproof version of this mascara, not yet a product that can be reviewed separately.

I ADORE the black primer. It is a new HG primer as it does not leave a white cast on the tips of my lashes that can be hard to cover. I can see people using this alone for a natural look, but I do prefer to use it under mascaras. The mascara side of this product is just ok. Not terrible and looks nice but I do get some fallout from the fibers and not really a fan of a curved brush but I can totally see others loving this makeup!!! I will continue to buy this product from the primer and I could see just bringing this as a mascara/primer while traveling to pair down the products that I pack but I have other more HG mascaras that I prefer. My favorite thing is to apply a tubing mascara like from Revlon or Loreal over my other mascaras to incapsulate the products together into tubes that don't smear or flake all this combined is my HG look and although it sounds like a lot, it does not look or feel like too much on the eyes and is easy to remove with water.

I hope Loreal starts packaging this primer separately as they do their white primer. It will be a HUGE hit for them!!!!!!!
