Moisturizers -L'Oreal -Revitalift Cicacream

I use this occasionally, when my skin is looking a little blah, and I do like it. I do not LOVE it, but I will at least use up what I have. I wish it was more moisturizing, but layered with other products it works pretty well. I haven't seen any huge changes in the overall appearance of the minimal fine lines I have or anything like that, but I do think that the small amount of retinol and tiger grass that this product delivers works pretty well as maintenance for the stronger products that I use. It does have a slight scent, but it is minimal and I don't believe it has really negatively affected my sensitive skin. The packaging is nice in that it is opaque and not in a jar, and the product also feels pretty nice going onto the skin. Is it a miracle product that will undo any kind of damage to your facial skin? No. I do wish it had more of the tiger grass extract, which is very low on the ingredients list, but barring that it is a perfectly okay product that is widely available.

Misc Beauty Tools -L'Oreal -Infallible Blending Sponge

I really liked this sponge and bought several. I used them over and over and it was after a couple of washes that I noticed that they turned into rocks. They may be cheap but they're not that cheap when you factor in that you only get about 10 uses out of them before they are done. I've been using a couple of Beauty Blenders for 10 years and they are still going strong. I won't buy them again. Instead I bought another Beauty Blender.

Lips -L'Oreal -Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick

on 6/4/2018 3:33:00 PM

I got the color Box o chocolate. Thr color on me is a perfect brownish nude. It is very flattering, but some of the colors can be dark. find swatches online before purchasing. I small plastic frosty container is quite pretty and lightweight. I love the applicator, really makes applying easy. Make sure to clean up any mistakes quickly.

This is very sticky, but becomes matte as it dries down. It can takes 5 minutes to dry. It does have chocolate smell from my childhood, very nostalgic.

I really like this liquid lip and does not feel drying like other liquid lips.

But on me once this dried, my lips started to burn. I will not repurchase, but will return.

This is also very hard to remove.

Conditioner -L'Oreal -L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil - Nourishing Conditioner for Dull, Dry Hair

on 6/3/2018 9:32:00 PM

foto

This conditioner is thick and luscious, and I expected it to moisturize and detangle my hair, but alas it does not. In the shower my hair will feel slick, but then once my hair dries it’s knotted and frizzy. Only redeeming quality is it smells really good.

I’m going to use it up and then not repurchase.


Shampoo -L'Oreal -Elvive Extraordinary Oil - Nourishing Shampoo for Dull, Dry Hair

I really needed something nourishing for my dry, knotty hair. This just did not deliver. I was expecting it to make my hair slick and smoothed out, but it made my hair more knotty, even when I used the corresponding conditioner. It wasn’t until I used the oil that comes with the line that my hair is detangled and smoothed a bit. I had better luck with this Garnier Smooth shampoo, it made my hair too smooth.

Only redeeming factor is that this smells amazing! I’m going to use it up and then try something else.


Hair Styling Tools -L'Oreal -Steampod

on 6/3/2018 8:17:00 AM

I bought the black Mightnight in Paris Steam Pod in the beginning of January and have been using it twice a week for the last five months without fail. Can't live without it now.

I have naturally curly hair and prefer soft waves, just looks the most flattering on me. Steam pod helps me achieve voluminous bouncy waves without tugging and with minimal damage.

I just wash and condition them, apply heat protectant, let them dry naturally or with the help of hair dried and separate in sections. Firstly I brush, glide along the strand to straighten and go back again while bending the wrist to form the wave. There are plenty of tutorials on YouTube. About 30' need instead of my usual 60'+

I get super glossy hair and since there is not much friction and abuse I don't get much fallout. I'm convinced it's much more kind to the hair than traditional straighteners. Using distilled water is not much of an issue either, a huge 4L amount cost me about 2 euros and not even half has been finished yet.

Why not 5 stars then?

First of all it's too bulky to travel with, sadly. Because I'm addicted not and can't style my hair the way I want otherwise.

Secondly because of the size I can't grab firmly the very roots which is the curliest part and therefore have to use a small straightener with narrow plates to finish off the look or else it looks sloppy. Takes only 2' but having to use a separate tool is a bummer. Also if I want more defined curls in some spots I'll still use a curling iron too.

Overall it's not the hair device to end of all hair devices because I still need others for perfect hair but none can do its job so fast and so good.

Lastly the price. Frankly it's absurd. Also skip the patching hair products, they're nothing special. You're better off using your favourite heat protectant and finishing serum.

I would definitely buy again.

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

on 6/2/2018 4:33:00 PM

I have medium-long, straight, fine, unprocessed hair. This product appealed to me as: -I like to try to keep my hair as free of heat damage as is possible; thus, I really only break out my hairdryer for use when the weather is very cold, special occasions (to help give my fine hair extra body & bounce), etc. -My hair is pretty low-maintenance & un-fussy. After I wash & condition it, I usually put it up in a med/high ponytail to dry. When it’s appx. 75-80% dry, I take it down; it’s still straight & has some body at the roots. Although this mousse is specifically marketed for air-drying hair, I *have* used it in a pinch with a blow-dryer and the results were still excellent! It is a nearly perfect hair styling product for me! Inexpensive, smells lovely, lasting results that really deliver. I was unsure before first using if it might make my naturally straight hair look “kinked” or “wrinkled” once dry as the bottles states it “Enhance hairs’ natural shape without leaving residue behind. A rich lightweight foam builds body, enhances waves and curls and provides hold.” — And I should have focused on the “enhances hairs’ NATURAL shape” rather than the waves/curls bit. It is such a true description of this product though because I have never noticed any residue with this, it’s very lightweight, keeps frizz at bay, never feels crunchy—hair only looks & feels naturally enhanced! A HG product for this picky chick.

Highlighters -L'Oreal -Crushed Foil Metallic Highlighter - Rose Quartz

on 5/31/2018 11:56:00 PM

foto

These seemed to be very limited in release and I only happened to stumble upon one in a clearance bin at London Drugs. It seemed to fly right under the radar of most social media. Not much info out there on these at all. IF you like blingy shiny metallic highlighters, you need this. Of all my highlighters, I find this one the brightest of them all. I barely have to apply any for it to really show up. You only need the smallest amount! Although the name is "Rose Quartz", it's really not that rosy. Maybe a hint of rose in a neutral gold base but my oh my, it's still one gorgeous highlighter! When I want to be seen from Mars, this is what I'll be using. This was originally $18.99 Cdn, marked down to $11.99. I would have been hard pressed to buy it full price, but it does feel very similar to the Lancome Dual Finish highlighters ($52 Cdn!) so in that respect, I guess it could be said that the L'Oreal is a bargain. It's a creamy, almost wet feeling powder with a lot of colour payoff. It doesn't feel dry or powdery like some other d/s highlighters and when you buff it into the skin, it seems to brighten the shine instead of blending it away if that makes sense. I'm pretty impressed with this one - enough to track down a back up. especially since they're were being cleared out, which is a shame. I wish L'Oreal would make this permanent like Maybelline did with their Master Chrome highlighters. It's kind of sad how quietly this came and went already!

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

I have an oily T-zone, especially in the summer and this foundation has been my favorite for more than 3 years. This gives me a demi-matte finish and keeps the oils at bay. I would say it is medium coverage coz it doesn't fully cover my occasional pimples and pimple marks. Other than that, I am completely satisfied with this foundation.

LOVE this mousse! I have tried SO many hair products...mostly from high end brands. Kerastase, Aveda, bumble and bumble you get the picture. Not sure how/why I purchased this when I was at Walmart, but it was the best $5 I’ve ever spent! I have fine, mostly wavy, curly hair and I don’t like to take a lot of time styling. Air dry? Yes, please. I spritz a dollap in my hand and rub it until it’s just liquid, no white visible. I scrunch it in my towel dried hair and then do my makeup. After around 15 minutes, I diffuse for a few minutes. My hair is still damp when I’m driving to work. Your hair will look crunchy...but after it dries, you can continue scrunching. I get volume and soft, moisturized hair. I keep trying my more expensive products, but none of them deliver curls like this one does.

Liquid -L'Oreal -Lumi Foundation

on 5/30/2018 7:13:00 PM

I honestly can’t believe how incredible this drugstore foundation is! After years of using tinted moisturizers, I feel like now that I’m in my mid-30’s I really need a bit more coverage to hide some light age spots and even out my skin tone. The thing is, it’s such a fine line between the natural look I want and ending up with a crackly mask that looks really unflattering. Anything matte is just an absolute no-go for me. The regular True Match formula clung to lines I didn’t even know I had, looked dry and powdery even without powder ever being applied, and just generally did not make me look better for having used it. But this Lumi version is PERFECT for me. It’s definitely more coverage than my tinted moisturizers, but still looks so natural! It makes my skin look dewy and radiant, never shiny or glittery. It plays well and stays put with any other products I use on top (my various under eye concealers, Laura Mercer setting powder, both cream and powder blushes, etc.) It also really stays put on me for most of the day. Even as it starts to wear off, it doesn’t cling to dry patches or look bad, it just kind of sheers out and the coverage is less, but still looks pretty darn good! And the color stays true on me- NO OXIDIZING/turning orange or dark later in the day. AND it has a pump! I feel like this fantastic product is such a steal at this price point! I was considering trying some much more expensive foundations and really only bought this on a whim at Target. As you can probably tell, I couldn’t be happier with this product, and I really hope they never discontinue it.

Hair -L'Oreal -Excellence Creme Haircolor

Rather than write a great big long review.....please see my written comments as to Clairol Nice 'N' Easy....

Suffice to say that I am so,so pleased to have discovered this lovely formula which I would never have even considered trying if Clairol hadn't "updated" their formula.

I was so concerned I'd never find anything to match what I'd used for so many years but desperation forced me into giving something else a chance.

This beautiful Excellence Crème formula is my new,permanent find and I'm just keeping my fingers crossed this one stays true for years ahead yet!

Very very good foundation. Specialy compared to other high end products, and I’ve used many ;). It’s a bit drying but stays put all day, I just moisturize properly and spray a bit of fix+ afterwards. Will definitely buy again

Primer/ Corrector -L'Oreal -Nude Magique CC Cream Anti-Dullness

on 5/30/2018 6:42:00 AM

This didn't really work for me as a colour corrector - I bought it as I thought it would give me that brightening backlit look you get from lavender-coloured primers and make-up bases and I'd heard good things about this from a friend of mine. When first applied it was a pale lilac colour, but after a few seconds on the skin it changed to a peachy flesh-toned colour that was too dark for me. So I didn't get any brightening or correction of dull yellow tones from this whatsoever.

In fairness, the formula is pretty lightweight and doesn't feel like you're wearing makeup, so if it matched my skin tone, I might have liked it as a tinted moisturiser type of product. But as a CC cream? Absolutely not.

I really love this product. It may be placebo affect but I really felt it smoother my skin. The downside is it has no spf. It’s a significant drawback but one can always use sunscreen over it
