Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous False Fiber Lashes

I must admit, I was in a BOGO mood at Walgreens a few days ago, yet only select L'Oreal mascaras were on sale, really shaping the purchases made. I knew nothing of this mascara in terms of reviews which is unlike so it is a happy surprise that I can say how well Voluminous False Fiber Lashes solves my needs.

Be aware that I use this product over L'Oreal's lash primer, really using it to stretch my lashes. Although this does make my lashes white I have no problems with covering this as one applies this mascara. I typically have more hate than love with different formulas but I found this mascara really easy to apply from lash to tip. The Brush does not look like anything special but it leaves me with long, think, defined and clump free lashes. It is worth explaining that I have dry skin that I add beauty oil that may get on my lashes leading all mascaras to smear and flake and look horrible after a short while. Because of this, I now seal mascara with L'Oreal's tubing mascara which make the entire lash basically bullet-proof. No smearing or flaking and I don't break off tubes and loose them as fallout, an issue I have with other tubing mascaras. This combination gives me hyper-natural looking and I give all the credit to Voluminous False Fiber Lashes, not the tubes I add over it as the tubes have no volumizing powers of it's own, and don't look great on their own.

The only thing I would change is that the top of the tube which I hold in my hand during application pokes me uncomfortably. I would love the design of the top to be changed as the poking is really distracting, to the point that I tried a disposable mascara wand but the I prefer the included brush better, as it really makes me look like I have feathery, fanned out lashes so I will get over the poking, but makes me wonder if anybody actually held it in their hand while designing this mascara tube.

I totally recommend this mascara, I hope it does not fail anybody in the longevity department, and if so maybe try the tubing mascara over it and see what happens.

PLEASE TRY THIS !

Mascara -L'Oreal -Miss Baby Roll

It’s an okay product.
I already found my HG mascara (Maybelline Lash Sensational, this stuff is so good), no other mascara can come close enough. This one didn’t, but it’s not a major disappointment either.
First and foremost, no raccoon eyes! I have deep set eyes and 8 out of 10 mascaras smudge on my lower and upper lid within an hour. So for that alone this mascara deserves two lippies. I add another for working nice on lower lashes- doesn’t make them look clumpy. The formula is wet (which I like) but not too wet. I like plastic bristle wands, though this one is a bit spikey, so it’s not my fave.
On my upper lashes, I still have to layer it with my LS. Also, it’s not as intensely black as LS.
I won’t repurchase- I’ll stick to Maybelline.

Eyeliner -L'Oreal -Voluminous Liner Noir

Kat Von’s eyeliner failed on me so I refuged to Target. This was recommended by one of the beauty consultants at Target. I cannot say it is the best thing that happened to me but I can say that it stays better and longer time on me than Kat Von’s eyeliner at twice of the price. So I wear this on my upper eye lid and over MAC Painterly. Over all, it is something that I can live without but it is good to have.

This is a great foundation from the drugstore that you can make light, medium and full coverage. I like that it has a pump as the True Match in a small bottle does not. They have many shades to choose from as well.

I like this thin foundation, you can make it light, medium for full coverage. And it is much cheaper than department store foundations that deliver the same look.

I'm NC25 - NC30 and this color looks terrible on me. The packaging is nice. The formula is nice. The scent and taste is less than preferred by me.

I was going to give this mascara five stars (lippies?). It makes my lashes huge, voluminous, separates them perfectly and does not flake. It's also easily removed.
Then one day something got into my eye, I tear up juuust a little bit and this thing started smudging like crazy. I mean, I know it does not claim to be waterproof, in fact, I only use non-waterproof mascaras because they are not as difficult to remove. Still, I have never seen anything like this with any other mascara. It just starts running like crazy at the slightest impact with water. Like, it is snowing right now and a snowflake got on my lashes and it smudged immediately. From A SNOWFLAKE! Come on!
I am mad. This would have been the perfect mascara, I love what it does to my lashes, but I can't walk around fearing the tiniest of rain drops could turn me into a raccoon.


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

I love this foundation and I have oily skin. When it says it is Infallible 24hrs it really is, depending on how hectic your day is and how oily your skin gets (for me I just blot in the middle of the day and I'm good from morning until night). The strange thing about this one is that although it provides a glowy healthy looking finish, it is not oily at all. It dries down to the touch completely about five minutes after application but it looks very natural and radiant, like real skin.
The consistency is super watery and thin, hence why I would prefer this came in a bottle with pump dispenser packaging. The coverage is medium to full and it does oxidize about a shade darker as you wear it but it doesn't look strange on me because I have warm undertones. I highly recommend it! But wait for a sale as this foundation is kinda pricey for drugstore (as most L'Oreal products are). I bought mine on Black Friday for $5

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

I absolutely love this foundation. I've tried high-end foundations across the board, and they still seem to fall short of this amazing formula L'Oreal has put together.

Sure, it's not perfect. No foundation ever is. It doesn't go well with a number of powders, but hey...you have to test combinations until you find your perfect one. (Mine so happens to be NARS Translucent Powder, which never worked with any other foundations I had before this one.)

Wearing this foundation on a Saturday night in a hot bar with lots of drunk and sweaty college students, I was sure my face would be absolutely ruined by the time I made it home at 1 AM. BOY WAS I WRONG. Looking in the mirror when I arrived home, I had to do a double-take. It looked like I had just applied it one hour before, not six! I was almost sad to take apart my masterpiece before going to sleep.

Let's just leave this review right where I started it: if you want an amazing bang-for-your-buck foundation, this just might be it!

Love the squeeze tube. I have this in shade 103. Initially, I did not care for this but after giving it another go, it is actually very good for oily skin. Lessons learned: Skin must be exfoliated and well hydrated, must have a good color match, it can look cakey and chalky if too much is applied, careful what you layer this with or it looks like...well...layers. Very good, medium to full coverage. It holds up quite well all day. Doesn't separate or float around!!! Keeps skin matte. I have the world's oiliest nose and I only have to blot. I don't really have to powder. Negatives: A bit of oxidation. It looks great after I apply it, then gets a bit too dark and slightly orange for a short amount of time, and then looks great again. Clings pretty bad to dry areas. All in all, I do recommend this foundation for oily skin. At the moment, I’m done with high end since I have been disappointed especially for the price tag and I have been pleasantly surprised and happy by drugstore makeup.

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

The best find at the drugstore - this eyeliner earned 5 lippies because of its ease of application, it lasted for about 14 hours (not 24 hours as claimed but I didn't believe it anyway) on my oily/hooded eyelids, looked like a much more expensive pencil does on the eyes, sharpens well, and it was easy to remove. It's better than the Maybelline Lasting Drama Pencil Eyeliner.

Moisturizers -L'Oreal -Hydra Genius (Normal/Dry Skin)

I purchased the Hydra Genius for extra dry skin. I agree with others, the smell is overpowering, I find this true with other L’Oreal products I’ve tried. It didn’t absorb into the skin and was sticky and not at all hydrating. Very disappointed. L’Oreal, quit making such smelly products, we are not purchasing perfume!
