Liquid -L'Oreal -True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

I rarely wear foundation, I usually just use tinted day creams. I bought this because I wanted something light weight, that would not add too much moisture, which I sometimes dislike about the tinted creams.

I like this product a lot. I payed around 8 euro, and where I live it comes in a bottle with a pump, not the bottle where you have to pour the product from.
To me, the foundation seems super light weight and I don't get that cakey look or feeling. I set the product with a bit of pressed powder on the t-zone, and I'm ready to go.

The only thing I dislike is the small amount of shimmer which is in the product. It looks like small sparkles, and make my make-up looks less natural. But I would say it is good value for the money.

I have combination skin and thought this would be a good foundation since it's oil-free, but this is the worst foundation I've ever used! It separates when I try to blend it, feels greasy within a couple of hours of application, and is completely worn off by the end of the day. Another negative thing about it is if you're skin is a tiny bit dry, it grabs onto dry/flaky areas. I'll never buy this again!

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

Ugh- I'm 64 and have normal to dry skin. I use Retin-A so I have flaky skin. This has a very thin consistency and I found the coverage to be minimal when applied with a beauty blender and not much better with a brush. I tried a second layer and got somewhat better coverage but it looked caky and clung to all my flakey skin. I didn't find it particularly glowy, but caky flakey skin does not look smooth and glowy. It also oxidized and took on an orange tint. I have been trying a lot of different of foundations lately and this has to be the worst. I have read good reviews but I wouldn't recommend. There have to be better options out there.

Pressed Powders -L'Oreal -Paris Infallible Pro-Matte 16HR Powder

on 12/21/2017 12:50:00 PM

I have this in shade 300. Nice light/medium yellow toned powder. It feels more like a powder foundation than a powder. I wear shade 103 - Infallible Pro Matte foundation. I have super oily skin. It does an ok job of keeping me matte but I still get shiny and have to touch up. Ladies with true oily skin...story of our lives, right?! This powder does not settle into pores or fine lines but I am not applying a lot...just a light dusting. On the fence with this....I don't think I will repurchase.

I had heard so many good things about this foundation. Since I have been trying to find some drugstore go tos, I figured I would give it a shot. I have mine in the lightest shade and at first, I didn’t like it. I thought it looked heavy and cakey. Now that I know how to prepare my skin before using this foundation, I really enjoy it. On Black Friday I ended up having this foundation on for 24 hours. It had worn away around my nose but the rest of my face looked amazing! This has pretty good coverage and has amazing staying power. I use this currently as my “special event” foundation that I use when I want to look flawless and have above average staying power. I definitely will probably comeback to this foundation when I finish this tube up.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Miss Manga Rock

I don't know if I got the "bad batch" or not, because it seems like people are really loving this mascara. However, it didn't work for me. But there's a chance it will for you, though, because I did get it at a Marshall's. Not great for people with monolids or hooded eyes, because this wand was just NOT my friend. It picked up the product and it got deposited in the middle of the brush in such a weird way, it clumped up my eyelashes and didn't really do anything for them except add a thick layer of mascara goop to them. In addition, it smudged on my eyelids. Flaked off in a couple of hours. Not really feeling this mascara, maybe I'll repurchase somewhere else and see if anything different happens.


Hair Color -L'Oreal -HiColor High Lift Hair Color

My hair is naturally black. I was getting tired of how plain my hair looked and didn't want to spend $200 on a balayage color job when I knew that there is only one color I really like. I also didn't want to bleach my hair...I only wanted to lighten it a few shades. I purchased the HiColor Blondes in the shade Vanilla Champagne.

About every month or so, I mix this dye with 30 Volume Creme Developer, leave it in for about an hour, and rinse it out. It gives my hair a nice brownish color that looks even lighter when the light hits it. I also use John Frieda blonde highlights shampoo and conditioner to keep it lightened and looking like it has highlights. Sometimes, I speed up the dying process by wrapping my hair with a plastic bag and blow-drying to lighten it some more.

I absolutely love the results and once the color grows out, it doesn't look brassy. This dye works really well on my naturally dark hair, and I can't imagine using anything else. Each tube costs approximately $6.79 at Sally Beauty. With coupons, that is sometimes less. I have only been able to find it at my local Sally Beauty or online. I think the trouble of dying it myself is totally worth it.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Butterfly

I got the nice lashes/manly body hair gene, but I do like to pump up the volume. I bought Voluminous Butterfly in Blackest Black 868, and it's one of the better mascaras I've tried. It really lengthens and blackens, and gives volume to the extent that I keep getting distracted by the giant fringe of eyelashes lurking in my peripheral vision. The only thing I don't like is that the separation isn't great; I'm not sure if I'm using too much, or not enough, or if I just need to invest in a lash comb. I feel I might have an easier time with Voluminous Butterfly once it's dried out a bit. I don't seem to poke myself in the eye with this brush as much as I do other volumizing mascara brushes, which is a plus.

Despite being non waterproof, it stayed on through me getting caught in the rain multiple times in one afternoon. It takes ~3 micellar water soaked cotton rounds to remove completely, but I consider that a good balance between lasting power and ease of removal, for my needs.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I had heard so many people rave about this mascara and I felt that I needed to try it. I am on the hunt for some good drug store mascaras so I don’t have to keep buying my high end favorites. When I originally opened my tube, I thought it was a bit dry. Since I ordered mine on amazon, I wrote it off as possibly being and older tube. I recently found out from a YouTuber that I watch that’s just how this mascara is. I haven’t tried many L’Oreal mascaras so I didn’t really know what to expect. I actually did like this mascara. It made my lashes somewhat fluffy and soft. I didn’t have any issues with clumping. Because it’s a drier formula, I did find that it took more time to get my lashes where I wanted them. Because it’s such a dry formula, I found I could only use this for about a month before it’s too dry for me and takes too long to apply in the morning. I will repurchase this mascara but I am not calling it my holy grail.

It;s dries out too fast, really goopy, and as a result is clump city! Brush is nice. Other than that wouldn't repurchase.


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

No way. This liner smears and smudges too much. It transfers to the corner of my eyes and under eyes. This goes on very smooth but doesn't stay put. I am not a fan. I generally use a liquid liner but wanted to find something that applies faster. This did not fit the bill. The pigmentation is great, but it transfers too much.

I have been using this for the last couple of months and I have just bought my second bottle. I love this foundation because it gives me the coverage I need to get through the day. I also don't get very oily (let's face it nothing keeps me completely matte for the whole day) at the end of the day which is a miracle considering I live in a tropical country. I love also that this looks so natural because the shade is just right. I'm golden beige and it's perfect.

Also while I feel that it doesn't completely hide my pores (I'm currently exploring changes in my skin care to rectify that), I feel like it does a good job smoothing everything over. The only thing is that it is a little pricey in the department store but considering that it is shipped here from the states, I'm not mad. I also forgot but it dries down quickly so you have to be fast in blending it but when it settles, it has a nice powdery like finish that doesn't really need powdering unless you are oily like me.

Anyway, I would definitely recommend this!

Brows -L'Oreal -Brow Artiste Genius Kit

foto

It’s a decent brow palette- the reason I got it is because I have dark hair but like a more taupe/ natural brown since I already have very dark brows. Most companies offer a dark brown that would look too harsh so I picked this up. It’s not exceptional, but it’s pretty good. I use both parts of it- and it lasts decently well. Mind you the powder is pretty dark but I find the pommade doesnot last if not set. It does fade/smudge a bit during the day (I have oily skin) but I’d say it would be noticible only to me. Wouldn’t repurchase- I want something fool proof as part of wear so might try new things but this was a good one! Lasted me over a year and I used it everyday.

I've been so pleasantly surprised by this mascara. I'm usually a bit wary about products that are super hyped, but I ran out of my Roller Lash, and needed something new in a pinch. Although I've been using mascaras with plastic applicators for real, I have found that I really don't mind this brush at all, in fact, I haven't had too many issues with it clumping, which is what I've found in other mascaras I have tried. My lashes look great with one coat, and even better with a second, the few times I've tried a third, it does start to get a bit ~spidery, but that's not a big deal for me. I do usually need to clean up a bit when I apply to my bottom lashes, but that isn't something a q-tip can't fix. I haven't had any issues with it smudging or smearing, and best of all, it comes off easily at the end of the day. All in all, I'm definitely a big fan of this mascara, and play on repurchasing as soon as I'm out of my current tube.
