Foundations -L'Oreal - Infallible Total Coverage

I was very surprised that a drugstore foundation who claimed to be full coverage was actually FULL coverage! It covered all my dark spots and stayed matte but I wish the darker shades had more undertones than just red. I uploaded a video comparing the Total Cover foundation to the pro matte foundation and was very pleased with the results. Full review is on my YouTube: Mary LeMuse





Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I bought this mascara and for the first week it was the BEST mascara I've ever used. I was obsessed. But after the first week it dried and clumped up and was no longer usable. I bought another one when it was on sale because I thought it might have been just the one but it happened again :'( the packaging is also cheap and fades quickly. if you can afford to buy a new mascara every week then this mascara is for you

Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal - Infallible Mattifying Base

I like this! I use this with the pro matte foundation and it helps to make it look more like skin, less dry/cakey.

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

I never really found a drugstore foundation that I love, but this is a different story. Using this with the pro matte primer gives me a flawless finish that stays on for hours. I also use the Tarte timeless smooth primer (the one in a jar) on my cheeks to make this look poreless.
This has become my every day foundation, even tho I own multiple high end foundations (double wear, teint idole, the new YSL)
This gives me a smoother surface, the foundation becomes one with the skin and gives that nice soft focus.


Without the pro matte primer this foundation can look a little cakey(dry?) on me, so if you have issues with this you should try pairing this with the loreal primer.

This Mascara was a big mistake for me.
First off, it goes on very clumpy, so it's hard to apply it evenly.
It left me with the worst spider leg eyes.
I accidentally bought the waterproof version and let me tell you, removing this (even with waterproof remover) seemed almost impossible.
Oh well........

This was another mascara failure for me, once again went & bought due to the reviews. The first time I applied one eye looked great, the lashes were fanned, full & soft, but the other eye was clumpy with lashes stuck together. So inconsistent application even though I was careful to use the same method for both eyes.
I didn't want to give up too soon & for the next few days kept trying to get the fanned full lash effect again but the mascara's consistency & application got worse day by day. It clumped, flaked badly & created unruly lashes with uneven application. Too much mascara comes out on the wand creating a clumpy mess on the brush & the neck of the tube. Total waste of money.
Too Faced Better Than Sex is much better & does not create any problems like this for me. Actually, BTS wears better as the day/night goes on.


Conditioner -L'Oreal - Total Repair Extreme Conditioner

on 10/3/2017 12:56:00 AM

This formula is different from the Total Repair 5 shampoo and conditioner,
The Total Repair Extreme formula contains lactic acid and ceramides Total Repair 5 contains ceramides and almond protein.

I did not care for this formula but I would not say it is bad.
For me, I was not impressed.
The scent was not the worst but not on my favs list that's for sure.
This shampoo made my scalp a tad itchy.
As for detangling the conditioner was just ok.
It was nice and thick but really did not give much slip nor did my hair ever look healthier.
In fact, my hair looked dryer by the time I used up the bottles.
I would not repurchase.

Info from the website
Total Repair Extreme -Penetrates Layers Deep.The new Total Repair Extreme collection contains powerful ceramide to help repair broken hair fibers. This luxurious formula instantly penetrates into the fiber to deeply renew extremely damaged and over-processed hair.

The regular formula states the following
Total Repair 5 -5 problems. 1 solution. Hair feels strong, healthy.
Total Repair 5 helps repair the five visible signs of damaged hair. The results? 1) Rebuilt fibers 2) Strength 3) Vitality 4) Silkiness and 5) Shine.

Got it on sale for around 5€, the version for me dry/sensitive fluid(pink label). Using it after a toner/essence as a starter or booster before serum is the way I use it. I didn't notice any negative reactions on my skin and I don't mind the extra hydration. Overall, I think it gets the job done.

Meh, I purchased a tub from Target and had higher expectations. Got better results from my "It's a 10" regular conditioner.

L'Oreal, ever the fake out, issued this same product under it's salon line called Absolue. I have been using it for years - it's very good but now discontinued. But wait .... here it shows up as Total Repair and a fraction of the cost. It's good but who wouldn't be annoyed with them for the games they play with consumers. And this is not the only product - compare the Lancôme mascaras to the L'Oreal.mascaras.

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

Beautiful cream, softens lines and gives a hint of pink. No need for a lot of foundation or blush. I tie my hair back, put this on, and start painting my pictures in my studio.
The colour in the jar is very pink, this doesn't translate to the face. I purchased two, one for the cottage, one for home.

Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Hydra Genius Mattifying Water Gel (Normal/Oily)

I decided to purchase this yesterday. I had ran out of my mary Kay and needed a replacement. After some research online and listening to some suggestions From here I decided to try this brand. I purchased it at CVS for roughly 20USD.
Packaging - This comes in a nice heavy glass bottle. A lot classier looking than a plastic tube. I like the pump on and it's easy to get the amount you want. Some pumps it's all or nothing.
This gel feels really nice when applying and it sinks in just about immediately. I didn't feel any residue. That smell tho. It's rather strong but doesn't upset my stomach. After awhile you don't smell it anymore. I have to say I am pleasantly surprised at the mattifier. This really helped keep my oil production down and I am usually a slick very shortly after cleansing. Even when I wake up in the morning I could ring out my face and cook a basket of fries but this morning my face was minimally oily.

I'll keep this post updated as I use the product.

UPDATE: The next morning when I awoke my chin was totally broken out. I know it's a reaction because of the type of breakout I got. Had to discontinue use. Grrr the search continues. I'm not sure if it was the high alcohol content or the stuff they used for that heavy fragrance :-(

I gave this product one more chance the next day. Why do I do this to myself? It was a big mistake. Five days later and my skin is still healing. I returned this to the store where I purchased.

Mascara -L'Oreal - Volume million lashes fatale

on 10/1/2017 4:16:00 AM

The brush makes me think about le Volume de Chanel. The results however are very poor: bit of length, no volume, no separation, little bit of curl that does not last all day.

I tend to like this mascara. One of the few drugstore mascara's that actually works for me: it gives nice volume, decent length, great separation, it holds the curl, and it lasts all day.
I am impressed - this one can stand the test among many high end mascara's.
