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.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

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

foto

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

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

on 12/3/2017 7:28:00 PM

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!

Flexible wand makes application difficult and irritating. Actual mascara is okay but doesn’t do a lot to volumise. Wouldn’t reccomend

Mascara -L'Oreal -Butterfly Intenza Mascara

This is the WORST mascara I have ever tried. And I have tried a fair many - from drugstore to high end. I love love the volume million lashes by Loreal, so when I ran out I bought this instead on a whim. What a mistake!
The weird flat brush doesn't do anything, its just a gimmick. The mascara did nothing! I build my mascara a lot (i like huge oomphy lashes), and usually even crappy mascaras perform under my will. But this one wont build, wont give me anything! Made my lashes look stubby in the end.
MEH! Don't waste your money!


Polishes -L'Oreal -Infallible nail polish duo

on 12/2/2017 6:36:00 PM

I’ve tried these nail polishes in 4 different shades and still don’t know what to make of them.

I found them for £1 on cosmetics fairy and thought they looked interesting, with the step 1 bottle of nail colour and the step 2 tinted top coats.

I chose 3 pastel shades in irresistible bonbon (a pale pink). Forever peppermint (mint green) and stay nue (a peachy nude colour)

The other shade I tried was a deep electric violet called iconic indigo.

The pastel shades ALL went streaky when I applied the step 2 top coat. I don’t know if I wasn’t putting down a thick enough layer of colour to start with. I I did try to apply as thick a layer as I could manage of the step 1 colour, which was difficult to begin with as these nail polishes are very runny.

I also found the depth of colour in the pastel shades left a lot to be desired so even with a thick first coat, they were translucent. I ended applying 4 layers of nail polish in all 3 cases, repeating steps 1 and 2 because the clear coat helped to set the varnish underneath and offset the streakiness in preparation for the second layer of colour.

If you’re confused by the description of how I applied this nail polish I’m not surprised. I tried all kinds of methods, with these polishes, even curing them with a UV lamp.

The dark purple on the other hand was easier to apply, as it was thicker and the colour clung to the nail better. I still managed to smudge one nail after applying the clear top coat as it takes SO LONG to dry and remains pliable and soft for a good 10 minutes after the surface of top coat has dried.

Perhaps I just wasn’t being patient enough with these nail varnish duos but you can watch me try out stay nue here:

Hair Color -L'Oreal -Mousse Absolue Permanent

I have never in my life experienced such a waste of time and money. My hair is so sticky, nothing will get this out. Not a single drop of color came off in the shower, this stuff is all stuck to my head and the gray is still visible even when wet. Now I have to dry my hair and run to the store to start all over again. Wow. How did this stuff get into production? Did anyone actually try it before it was hoisted on the public?


Styling Products -L'Oreal -LOCK IT clean style gel

on 12/2/2017 1:42:00 PM

It has a kinda off smell (seems to be a L'Oreal hair gel thing) but it goes away quickly. I like the hold. I've used it when air drying. As long at I don't use too much, it doesn't get crunchy. Will repurchase.

It is a really hyped product: At first I thought that I loved it and it was the best. And tbh it is fine, but its nothing special. Then I used other mascaras and realized this is not that spectacular.

Polishes -L'Oreal -Color Riche Nail Art stickers

on 12/2/2017 9:29:00 AM

These nail stickers were fabulous value on the cosmetics fairy website and have excellent staying power!

I bought them in the shades Gold lingerie, Gold Lamé, Gold Powder and Python, and I think they were £0.79 each.

These packs come with 18 stickers inside, which is a really generous amount once you get used to sizing them to your nails and saving the pieces you don’t use for a second or even a third round!

The instructions tell you to use a dissolvant to remove them. But if you prime your nails with a base coat of clear varnish first, then as long as you peel them off carefully it doesn’t cause damage to the nail and I have rubbish, flakey nails so I would know!

I apply my stickers over a (dry) coat of Sally Hansen Diamond strength, nail strengthening polish

Watch me chat about the joys of these stickers in Gold Lamé here:
