Foundations -L'Oreal -Infallible Total Coverage

Current favorite foundation- this is great. The coverage when applied with the Real Techniques buffing brush, is flawless. This doesn’t make me break out, or oily. In fact, it’s comfortable and lasts all day. The nice thing is, it doesn’t settle into the pores on my nose. The packaging is awesome, as I squeeze the desired amount directly onto the brush. It does not get messy! It blends so well, has great packaging, and lasts all day. This is a winner for me!

packaging is great, love the applicator, i have the shade nudist i was on the hunt for these when they first launched sometime in the summer/fall the formula is smooth on application but after 2 hours or so of wear, my lips were very dry. yes i know its a liquid lipstick and matte, and it’s typical of these products, but i have others that aren’t as drying as these are. side note, i prefer the gloss version of these, the pro matte gloss, and for me that fornula lasts almost as long as this one does

Initially I really liked this product; the wand, formula and packaging were spot on! However I noticed quickly that the product became clumpy. I find that I frequently have to wipe the product off the wand, and it seems to waste a lot of product. I’m disappointed because initially I was a fan.

Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal -Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base

I heard many say this product is a dupe for many high-end primers. I had to try it. The price is right. The jar is quite small but you really don't need alot of product. The smell is very light and almost no smell.

The product is thick when applied. It is very moisturizing and appeared to full in fine lines and pores, but after less than 6 hours this separated on my face and cake up at the same time! So weird. It really exaggerated my pores and I couldn't wait to take my makeup off.

Lips -L'Oreal -La Palette/Lip

This review is for Nude. I really liked the idea - I need a nude lipstick and love contouring my lips, so this palette seemed like a win-win. However, the shade range is pretty terrible. I have medium-ish, warm-toned skin and these shades didn't really work for me. They either disappeared against my skin or looked more pink than nude. Maybe someone lighter could carry it off, but I wouldn't recommend it for most skin tones. Also, they didn't stay on at all. After about an hour (maybe even less), the colour completely disappeared. I didn't eat or drink or do anything that would normally mess up lipstick, it just faded off somehow.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

This is a Good Mascara for volume! As for lengthening, it could be better. I'll repurchase because I liked the volume and the waterproof formula is very good. Very Easy to remove with oil based eye makeup remover. The original voluminous is my favorite.

This has quickly become my HG drugstore mascara (after one use)! I have non-existent lashes, and this mascara provides length and volume. I am also able to use it for my lower lashes. It does not smear or smudge and does not weigh down the curl of my lashes. I mostly use one coat sometimes 2 at the most and it does not make my lashes look spidery. I use the waterproof only. I cannot attest to the non waterproof version. To me personally I cannot say this product is a dupe for the TF Better than Sex mascara. I did not like the TF mascara at all.


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

Okay, I really truly enjoy this foundation......with a couple of caveats... I've tried so many foundations/BB/CC etc in my 50 plus years and for the past 10 or so have been a die-hard fan of Illuminare's Moisturizing BB Mineral Cream - it's great. But then it started being just a bit too yellow on my skin and I was having to mix with other colors so I started looking around... the list is a long one but includes Guerlain (nope), Shiseido Syncro Glo (yup - but still a smidge yellow), Chanel (no), IT Cosmetics CC Cream (no - and I've tried making it work so many times - just shows every dry patch I have - does not look good on me at all), No. 7 Lift and Luminate AND their other one, can't remember the name, Stay Perfect maybe? (no to both), Armani Luminous Silk (maybe? I might have wrong color...I don't hate it though), Josie Maran (very moisturizing, but just doesn't stay put or meld into my skin), Face Atelier (another good one) and the list goes on... there is something about this foundation that ticks all the boxes and every time I wear it, I'm happy with the results...it's a beautiful (albeit watery) liquid that blends nicely and quickly....does it last 24 hours? Who knows, I'd never keep it on that long.. but it does not oxidize on my normal to dry (more dry) skin, it's lightweight, doesn't look masky, and does NOT emphasize dry patches or wrinkles. For those who have a reaction to Bismouth - the ingredients say it "may" contain it, and as one who is very reactive to it - I've had no angry, itchy skin from it. So, ya, I dig this foundation... the caveats... I can not wear for more than 3-4 days at a time because I think the alcohol in it starts to dry out my skin - so here is where I will switch to Shiseido, Armani, or Face Atelier... and I have noticed the occasional blemish - not all the time, but it's definitely after using ProGlo for a few days.... while higher end and lower end foundations have ended up in the foundation graveyard, this one will stay front and center. If you're still awake after reading this novel, I would encourage you to give it a try!

I liked the idea of this but when I put it on it feels tacky and drying, and the fragrance is quite strong. I really really wanted to like it because of the pump packaging, but I guess I'll have to keep looking!


Tinted Moisturizer -L'Oreal -Age Perfect Rosy Tone Moisturizer

L'Oreal, can we talk? In the year 2018, Paraffinum/Mineral oil is one of your top ingredients? Really? Are we still in the uninformed 1970s? Can we now come to a collective conclusion that mineral oil just...isn't the best for us, at all? Coconut oil is a better moisturizing component, and we all know this, because many brands have long since opted out of putting mineral oil in their products and replaced it with coconut oil, as it provides nutrients and doesn't block the skin. We're well informed now, so we don't fall for these marketing ploys as easily and your 'LHA and Imperial Peony!' nonsense you're spouting for this product. Squalane, the second ingredient, is known for being an antioxidant and emollient. However, when combibed with an ingredient (liberal oil) that wont let toxins leave the body, I just really dont see the point of squalabe beibg present in this formula, unless the chemical compound makes it work and balance out to where it DOES help tge skin as an antioxidant.

So, phew, this is going to be a long one. I'm a skincare/makeup blogger (though I'm NOT an expert), so I have just a bit of knowledge of what skin needs and doesn't need, and would just like to put in my 2 cents to just try to inform. Ok, getting off my soapbox: First off, I got a sample of this Cell Renewal Rosy Tone cr*p from Ulta (L'Oreal was the only brand of skincare samples they were sending out for online orders, which was disappointing, and I didn't know at the time, and I've long since stopped purchasing from L'Oreal and other non-cruelty-free brands) and after testing it out for a couple days this week (again, knowing I won't purchase it, as L'Oreal does not yet have a cruelty-free stance), I have to say that although this cream glides across the skin effortlessly (with the help of none other than good ol' antiquated mineral oil, the cheapest, crappiest moisturizing ingredient a company could possibly use, which no self-respecting cosmetic company should have listed as a top ingredient in ANY of their skincare or body products in the year 2018), this moisturizer is marketed towards mature, dull skin. Keep that in mind!

Now, I'm 26, with somewhat smooth skin with minimal acne scarring and larger pores in the area bridging my nose and cheeks, and although my skin can be chronically dry in the winter months, I know how to keep my skin hydrated and healthy, and use products that balance my cells and oil production and not thwart them or suffocate them completely. The use of Mineral oil, over time, actually HINDERS cell renewal, and if used in a higher concentration in products. It doesn't let your skin BREATHE. Mineral oil actually traps and clogs your skin and just blocks the toxins inside that our bodies take in everyday that, naturally, NEED to be released through our pores, so it prevents your facial skin (or wherever you put it) from detoxing. So, Although it appears to moisturize it on the surface, it does more harm than good. And, this L'Oreal cream has this mineral oil listed as the 8th ingredient, on the very first line, and there are probably 55-60 ingredients total in this. Recipe for nopeville!

What's more, The 'rosy tones' that L'Oreal is claiming this moisturizing cream to have, blend out to show up as straight up GLITTER on my face. I'm wondering if anyone else has noticed this? I've noticed it BOTH times I've worn it. And I applied this moisturizer DIRECTLY after I washed my face with my TonyMoly cleanser, applied and cleansed further with my toner, and THEN applied this L'Oreal cream. So I know it's not makeup residue. The sparkle in this cream accentuated my pores and made those areas look HORRIBLE. And this stuff is catered to mature skin? Uh, no, I find that extremely hard to believe, unless you have perfectly smooth mature skin, sans lines or wrinkles (goodness forbid you have a couple of pores showing and a dark spot here or there) and you don't like glitter in your skincare products, then stay faaaarrrr away from this stuff. Just...stay far away from this stuff PERIOD, no matter what your age, if you really want to treat your skin right.

After 2 uses, I will go ahead and throw the rest of my sample out, because I haven't used a product with such a high concentration of mineral oil in quite a while, so don't know how my skin will react, and I don't want to put my skin through that, just for the sake of review. I just know the harmful effects of it, and I'm just smarter than that. Oh! Also, The scent is kind of a chemical floral, and it has this underlying pungent odor that is a bit akin to ammonia? Just...not a fan. There are so many other better options out there.


Styling Products -L'Oreal -Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse

This stuff is great!
I swore off mousses for awhile because of how dirty my hair would look+feel after only 2 days of no washing, presumably due to build up of product (I've discovered I can go 4-5 days without washing when I don't have mousse in my hair) but my mom had this sitting in her washroom and I decided to give it a whirl.
This mousse defines my curls like no other I've found before. Like the reviewer below, it actually defines some of my normally wavy locks into ringlets! Something I haven't seen for a very, very long time. This mousse does not give me the issue of weighed down looking hair after a few days no matter how much I apply, which is great.
It smells really good and keeps my hair super soft and touchable for days which is a huge thing for me, I hate crunchy feeling hair. I've been wearing my hair heat free natural much more because this mousse is so great at frizz control and curl definition (thanks mom!!).
I will definitely be buying my own bottle.

I have both the shampoo and conditioner. I really like them both. I have an oily scalp and fine, curly hair that is very porous, can get frizzy, and drier ends. This has a light scent...very nice. Cleans well without being drying. I do have to use a tiny bit of serum (l'oreal extraordinary oil) after towel drying (my hair tangles so easily but I don't need much with these products) and some styling product. After using this shampoo and conditioner, my hair does have more lift/volume and my hair tends to hold up more throughout the day. I really this and L'Oreal's clay shampoo and conditioner.

This product broke me out like never before. After a couple of uses my face began getting cystic acne so I guess this is not the product for you if your skin is acne prone

I received a sample of this quite recently and although I’m not a fan of L’Oréal moisturizers, I was immediately intrigued by the ‘rosy tint’ factor. I liked it enough to order the full size jar which I’ve been wearing daily for the past week or so. It’s quite a rich moisturizer which I prefer in the cold winter months, and since I dislike wearing foundation during the day, I like to wear this since the subtle rosy tint really does breathe some life into my sallow winter complexion and gives me a healthy, fresh glow. It does have quite a strong scent, which ordinarily would put me off, but it’s a pleasant scent, so I don’t mind too much. I’ll continue to use this over winter, but I don’t see me wearing it in the warmer months.
