Body Scrubs -L'Oreal -Exfotonic [DISCONTINUED]

foto

I'm almost finished with my second bottle, but I think I'm done with trying to make this stuff work as a body acne treatment. Usually it's clogged pores on my chest, you know those small bumps that don't seem to have a head, that I'm trying to treat as I don't get regular body acne very often.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Power 24H

My favourite mascara, I've been using it for years! I tried some other mascaras through out the years, but none of them worked for me like this one. I love the brush, this type works the best for me because it spreads the lashes, it makes them look longer without being too obvious and I feel like it looks that I have way more lashes. For a night out I apply two coats just because it's darker and I want them to be even more visable. I don't know how this works on short lashes though...

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

Not good a good foundation. I have dry, mature skin, and this accentuated my pores and flakes on my face (i have major texture issues from retin-a use). Color-wise, it looked almost gray on me, and i don't think i've ever had that happen with a foundation before. I'm around NC15, but for the most part i'm neutral toned, and got the color "creamy natural". It claims to give a radiant finish (didn't look very radiant on me), and is hydrating (unfortunately, i hated it right away so i didn't leave it on long enough to see if it was hydrating). It didn't seem to make me itchy like a lot of foundations do, so i guess that's a plus. It has light to medium coverage, so it has buildable coverage i'd say. Would not try or buy again.

For some reason I was not expecting much from this mascara...boy was I wrong! It was easy to apply and work with, did not smudge and gave me beautiful fanned out voluminous lashes.
Will definitely repurchase!

Mascara -L'Oreal -Telescopic Mascara

This was decent. It had a very skinny wand that you have to use carefully but I was able to get the lashes I was going for. It is a wet formulation with chances to smear if you are rushing. I have to take my time, but I do like the way my lashes look. This also darkens well. I'm not sure if I would repurchase.

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

In my constant search to find an eyeliner that can withstand my eye issues, I think I have found the one AND it doesn't cost a fortune! Albeit, I was willing to pay a fortune for eyeliner despite that I am replacing my department store makeup with drugstore. I have tried just about every long wearing eyeliner made by man. I have severe issues with eyeliners and mascaras smudging and transfering on me. I have oily skin, dry/watery eyes, and I stare at a computer screen all day. This creates the most perfect condition for a total lower eye makeup disaster for me especially at work. While this isn't 100% smudge proof on my lower lid while I'm at work, but it is easily corrected without messing up everything. Significantly WAY better than anything I have tried thus far!!! On the weekends, I have noticed my eyes are not as strained and therefore makeup actually holds much better. I have worn this swimming and in the shower, and it does NOT budge and looks almost as good as when I applied it. This eyeliner paired with L'Oreal's Double Extend tubing mascara has been a miracle for me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Mascara -L'Oreal -Double Extend Beauty Tubes

In my quest to replace all my high end with drug store equivalents, this tubing mascara is very good. I have severe issues with eyeliners and mascaras smudging/transfering on me especially. I have oily skin, dry/watery eyes, and I stare at a computer screen all day. This creates the most perfect condition for a total lower eye makeup disaster for me. I'm sure the aging process also has something to do with this and a recent autoimmune issue. This is comparable to Clinique Lash Power but for a fraction of the price. While tubing mascaras do not do a lot in terms of volume and curl hold, it definitely enhances the lashes but is more natural in appearance. It does not budge, flake, or smudge!!!!!! I have worn this in the shower and the pool and it did not come off until I took it off. I also like Revlon's Mega Multiplier.


Hair Color -L'Oreal -Casting Creme Gloss

I had Blonde Ombre and wanted to get rid of the blonde so I bought a 400 Dark Brow, left it on for 15 - 20 minutes as advised..................it is jet black! no shine, really dry, there is not a hint of brown in it, if I stand under a light its practically ebony black, doesn't resemble the colour guide on the back at all, it even turned the bleached hair jet black, do not use, will have to wash this every day for about a month to get it the colour on the box!

Lipstick -L'Oreal -Colour Riche Shine Lipstick

Love, love love! Finally, a moisturizing but pigmented lipstick, gorgeous packaging, smells great...can't say enough. Great range of colors also. I have a YSL Rouge Volupte Shine which was a splurge but one of my favorite lipsticks and the L'oreal is definitely a dupe. I am a fan of easy to wear, moisturizing, sheer-but-pigmented lip products and this product is perfect. If you're like me and are tired of all the super opaque, drying, mask-like lip products out there, this lipstick is for you. I am a cool-toned blonde. Vanished Rosewood is a beautiful MLBB. Sparkling Rose is a lovely nude on me. Gleaming Plum is quite, well, plum...but berries and plums look good on me. (I didn't find it to be patchy as one of the reviewers said the "darker" colors are.) I tried Glassy Garnet but find it a little too bright for my taste so I'll be exchanging it for another shade to try. These are excellent and cost about $10 at Walgreens but worth it. I can see myself using these up, and how many lipsticks can I say that about? :)

Thin formula, light fruit scent that goes away, glides on easy, moisturizing. This doesn't have that typical L'Oreal lipstick smell. Reminds me of a slippery version of Urban Decay's Sheer Revolution formula. The darkest colors can be patchy looking. I've had no problems with Varnished Rosewood & Dazzling Doe. I like them enough to want more colors.

Lipstick -L'Oreal -Colour Riche Shine Lipstick - Varnished Rosewood

Varnished Rosewood is a beautiful slightly darker mlbb if you like a cool tone. Not too dark at all for fair skin. Thin formula, light fruit scent that goes away, glides on easy, moisturizing. This doesn't have that typical L'Oreal lipstick smell. Reminds me of a slippery version of Urban Decay's Sheer Revolution formula. This hasn't gone into lip lines on me, but it's thin enough that I think it could if you applied layers of it.


Eyeliner -L'Oreal -The Infallible Blackbuster

I did not have the rotten experience with this liner that most seem to have had, but I certainly wouldn’t buy it again. It’s a great liner for an unsteady hand, as the sturdy, felt tip makes it easy to apply. I’m not half bad at liquid liners, however, so this wasn’t necessarily a plus for me. The color isn’t brilliant, but I didn’t find that it looks too faded. It goes on thick (in terms of width, not color), so a real inky black might be a little much. However, the thickness of the tip is an unavoidable problem when it comes to the corners of your eyes. A thick line in the inner corner looks ridiculous, so if you use this product, you’ll have to do some delicate smudging/cleanup in this area. And forget about even attempting to do a cat eye, because a fat tip can’t complete a delicate sweep, that’s for sure! The tip also becomes dull fairly quickly, so the fatness of your line will progress as time goes on. I do, however, feel this liner has good lasting power. If you want to use it for a layered, smoky, smudgy look, it could be a fine weapon in your arsenal, but you can achieve this type of look with more diverse products.


Lipstick -L'Oreal -Color Riche in Peony Pink

I really love this lipstick! It's a cream-based product, so it's not transfer proof, but for the price I don't mind carrying it around and reapplying throughout the day. This pretty pink is a shade darker shade than my natural lip, and it does leave a lovely "stain" even if you have transferred all the lipstick off (which removes easily with makeup remover). The pink is neutral, medium pink with a pretty sheen; i's definitely a "my lips but better" color!

I also love the wide range of shades from this line to choose from, and although I am sensitive to scented products, I don't mind this fragrance at all.

I've had high end lipsticks that are messier and more prone to transfer than this formula, and they are 3-5x the price of this product. I believe that if you find something that works at a drugstore price, stick to it!


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

Elvive's Citrus.CR shampoo for oily hair was my holy grail shampoo for years, until it discontinued. It had a refreshing scent, gave extra volume to my hair and really cleaned off the excess oil from my scalp. I'm really sad Elvive got rid of it. But of course I wanted to try their new shampoo for oily hair and got this, although I didn't have much hope.

I have flaking skin on my t-zone and it's on the oily side too. I use a clay mask on that area once a week. So when I saw 'clay' in this shampoo I thought it would do a good job cleaning the dandruff, just like my clay masks do on my t-zone. I wasn't wrong on that. But I also thought...clay masks don't really do anything on how oily my t-zone is. I can't generalize but for me personally imagine all the ingredients that clean off the excess oil like acidic stuff, alcohol, etc out of all, clay always did the poorest job. I would have my t-zone oil-free for MINUTES and then the oil would come back. This shampoo did exactly that on my scalp. With the Citrus.CR shampoo I could go days without washing my hair and still have volume and unless I touched my hair, my scalp wouldn't be THAT oily. With this clay shampoo the volume isn't even close to the result of Citrus.CR and the oil comes back pretty fast. I didn't like the scent either.

I expect three things in a shampoo: give volume, control the oil on my scalp as much as possible, good scent. Sadly, this shampoo didn't provide any of that.

I got this for free at a L’Oreal promo and am not a big lipstick gal. The shade I got is “802 - Matte-sterpiece”, which is like a pale nude that doesn’t really suit my lightly tanned skin. Might be better for fairer skin? I’m not a big fan of this lipstick (and most lipsticks for that matter, except for the sheerest or most high-end lipsticks) because it emphasizes the dry spots and flakes on my lips. Not a great look in the winter! I’ll be getting rid of this to make room for the other lip products in my collection...
