Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

Meh. It's not bad but really not that great either. I'm not a fan of the brush. It seems to pile too much on and makes it hard to comb it out the clumps. The formula is thick. Maybe if it were thinner it might work a little better. It seemed to have a mind of its own. Some days it would apply nicely, other days clumpy. If you wanted to coat the top side of your lashes, you really had no idea what you were going to get (though it was usually too much product.) I kept it around for a while but it wasn't my main squeeze. If I wanted to amp up the volume in my mascara for the day, I'd gingerly apply it so as to not get a uni-lash. it dried out pretty quickly too. If it were the last mascara one earth, I'd make a way for it to work, but since there are better mascaras out there, I would not rebuy.

Foundations -L'Oreal -Infallible Total Cover Foundation

After using the L'Oreal Pro Matte Infallible and liking it a lot, I decided to give this a try. I have fairly even skin with a little bit of redness around my nose, and a couple sun spots and this stuff does a nice job of evening up my skin. I use a large round 'toothbrush' style foundation brush to apply it, and it does a great job of applying it evenly and completely. I wouldn't call it FULL coverage, but it is a Medium-Full. I've used it on blemishes and it's made them invisible, but won't completely cover a dark freckle on my cheek. A little goes a long way, (I use a bit more than a pea size on the back of my hand and it does my entire face, and blends down to my neck. The texture (with the brush) seems a little too airy to provide total coverage, but it does fine for my purposes. I've worn it in the heat of summer and while doing a bit of work at volunteer events and it doesn't seem to move.

The shades I've used (303-304-305) seem to complement my skin tone extremely well, with no demarcation due to oxidation. It stays on very well all day (I do use a powder to set it. Infallible pro matte) and aside from an after lunch touch up of powder, (I do still get shiny in my T zone, although the foundation stays put) I'm good all day. I don't notice a whole lot of transfer onto my coat collar or otherwise (except for the powder, if I'm honest) and it does not seem to irritate my skin at all. At the end of the day, it comes off cleanly with a microfiber cloth and cetaphil, or if I'm feeling lazy a micellar water wipe or two. (I also do liquid lipstick and eyeliner so I need at least two wipes to clean it all off)

I would say, it does seem that the three shades I've worn for the seasons run cool, so it may be a little to flat to those with warmer or rosy skin tones. (At least for the palest shades) For me it works amazingly well, as most foundations tend to oxidize warm on me giving me an orange glow that isn't at all like my normal tone. And it's definitely not too pinky, which is another challenge with the paler skin tones out there.

Oxidizes like there's no tomorrow. Yes it is matte but so what. I have combo skin and this foundation makes my skin looks dry! I mean really dry. Not for me.

I'm NC50 (chocolate brown skin)tone. This lipstick is perfect combined with another shade such as Volcanic 410 for out skin. Alone it washes out the lips. It's highly pigmented by unless you wear it with a darker pencil is a little too light colored

Lipstick -L'Oreal -Colour Riche Lipstick -- Volcanic

L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick, Volcanic 410.
As others have said, it's an orange-red tone. I am an NC50 shade (milk chocolate). One Swype on my shade of skin will give you a semi sheer natural tone that doesn't need any more moisturising. More than one will give you a very pigmented vibrant look and make your lips more plump looking/feeling. For drier lips it's better than MAC lipsticks in similar shades. It's also incredibly long lasting and mixes well with other Colours Riche shades.


Conditioner -L'Oreal -Advanced Haircare - Total Repair 5 Conditioner

At first I was pretty disappointed with this. I was trying to save money on Kerastase and Oribe and I remembered my hairstylist once told me that L'Oreal products in general are good - and that nutrition is more important than product anyway. So, at first I was disappointed with this because unlike with my Kerastase or Oribe conditioners my hair was super frizzy after using this (with my Kerastase Elixir Ultime Shampoo, which I feel is pretty non-drying) and much drier. I was afraid it was going to break if I kept using it. It felt like more of a shampoo than a conditioner really, albeit slightly moisturizing.

So, so as not to waste it, I decided to try it as a co-wash/shampoo+conditioner type deal since it felt more like a shampoo anyways. I think as a conditioner after a shampoo it's too drying for me. It's an OK level of moisture if you have fine, oily hair - like I do - but not if it's also pretty delicate and breaks easily, like mine does. You can't strip away so much of your natural oils.

Using this alone I end up with the perfect level of cleanliness, moisture, volume, and bounciness. Maybe even better than with Oribe and Kerastase, which sometimes do weigh my waves down too much. Perfect fix - and now I save money on conditioner and shampoo : )

Oh and it smells coconut-y, which I love.


Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I love this stuff. Total dupe for Two Faced Better Than Sex. It doesn't flake, lasts all day, and makes my lashes fluffy and plush. It's not too watery, and not too dry, however the wand picks up a lot of product on the end so I will usually tissue off the tip before applying. I tend to lean toward drugstore mascaras simply because I go through them so much that it makes more sense financially, but also on my no makeup/ light makeup days I prefer a more natural looking black-brown mascara with my light skin and high-end mascaras never come in black-brown. But honestly even if this were a high-end mascara I would still buy it. I have it in blackest black, black-brown and waterproof. I haven't loved a mascara this much since maybelline great lash with the big brush, which has been my ride or die for basically my entire career.

Moisturizers -L'Oreal -Revitalift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer

I received a nice sample pack with enough product for 14 days and nights which was very generous and perfect for testing a product out! I wish more companies would do this. Each day worth of product was individually sealed and one packet was enough for morning and night. It did have a scent but was not overwhelming and dissipated quickly.
That being said I did use it both night and day for the entire 14-day trial.

You do not need much product to cover your whole face. I was able to cover my face and bring it down my neck slightly and use the rest on the back of my hands. I did not continue use all the way down my neck because it did cause me to break out here and I did not feel like it sank into the skin well in this area.
On my face, it sank in rather quickly and left my skin well moisturized without feeling too greasy or uncomfortable. During the night it was perfect but for daytime use is did cause me to become more shiny than normal and caused my eye makeup to smudge onto my undereye area. It also did not have SPF so personally, I would not reach for a moisturizer and a separate SPF product for the day.
I enjoyed it much better as a night cream even better than that it worked well as a moisturizer for under the eye when used in a light layer.
I did not notice any significant firming, smoothing of any roughness, or anti-wrinkle benefits but what I did notice was my skin was moisturized and plumper, however, not really any younger looking or firmer. It did work best at helping my dry, crepey, fine lines in my undereye area that had been left over from using another product. It did not eliminate it completely but thankfully it is much better than before. Another good sidenote was the skin on the back of my hands looks lovely!
When I initially began using it did cause me to break out and I even got a painful breakout under my eye in the dark circle area which I had never had before. It did heal quickly but I did break out a few more times with large red, round, and painful blemishes on the surface of my skin around my chin, cheeks near my nose, outer eye area, and above my brows too. With continued use, it did calm down a little after the first week when my skin seemed to become more used to the product.
Due to no real benefit to my skin as far as helping with discoloration, firming, etc. and because it caused breakouts I would not purchase this product.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Telescopic Mascara

I can't even give a decent review of the formula, because after only a few uses the brush tip bent so far to the side that it became a job just to reinsert it into the tube. I didn't like the brush itself, the bristles are hard plastic and managed to get product all over my lash line but not necessarily on my lashes (which are short, thin and sparse, and not the easiest to work with). The formula is on the wet side which made messes worse. So, nope, will not purchase again. Whoever engineered the tube opening needs to go back to the drawing board - it's too narrow to accommodate a flexible brush end.

Eye Shadow -L'Oreal -Infallible - Amber Rush

I think this might be one of the most universally flattering shimmery eyeshadow you can get at a drugstore - so glad I bought it. For reference my skin tone is NC30-35 with yellow undertone.

I have heard about the hype surrounding MAC's Tan pigment and how this is the exact dupe for it and only about 1/3 of the price, so when I got it I was very impressed. First of all the pan is deceptively huge - you get 3.5g when a regular eyeshadow runs about half the size of less. Secondly the color - it really is beautiful. It is a gorgeous pinky bronze color that I can see how everyone would like it. One Youtuber mentioned that sometimes she will wear it by itself but I have yet to try that. I still would add a bit of a dark brown and my outer corner to add some depth. I found this to be best applied with your finger - I tried brush and it just doesn't give the same color payoff. Something to think about. It also stays on all day with the primer - I love it.

To sum it up this is the perfect lazy day/5 minute makeup eyeshadow for me. I won't hesitate to recommend this to anyone and now it got me interested in other shades from this line.

Overhyped and oxidizes like crazy.

I am around MAC NC30 with moderately oily skin. I bought this in 106. Seemed like the perfect match at first until people started commenting how dark my face is throughout the day. That's when I realized it oxidized on me. So I bought 104 next and it still oxidized on me. I've never had other foundations oxidize on me so this was rather odd.

The formula is quite interesting since it feels like it was powdered once it sets on the skin. However, I found it hard to blend since it dries really quick. It also cakes if you put on too much or when you sweat.

Pigmentation is ok. I still needed to use concealer on my darker spots after.

If you are super oily and prefer really matte looks then you might like this. Just keep in mind that it's not the best foundation ever like youtube gurus promote. I personally prefer the true match foundation shade-wise and formula-wise.

Hair -L'Oreal -Feria Haircolor Hi-Lift Browns

About 2 years ago I grew my hair out. Completely stopped coloring to let my grays come through. Fast forward to today, and I am sick of it. Soooo I ordered this color Feria 61 Downtown Brown through Prime Now and decided to color my hair again. I have to say, it looks amazing. My silver hair (mostly in the front) was actually beginning to glow it was so white/silver. This color helps it to blend better while letting the gray shine through. It also evened up the rest of my hair and lightened it to an ashy medium brown (started out with dark brown). It looks SO MUCH BETTER I was worried when I read the other reviews. Make sure you are using this on virgin hair and process as directed. I may want something with more deposit in the future (this basically lifts and tones) but for the next couple of months this will do nicely.

This is my favorite mascara. It makes my lashes thick with just one coat; additional coats add thickness and length. I use my fingers to pinch off any clumps on the ends and comb through to separate the lashes. This mascara does not flake and really makes my lashes look nice and full. I also have the Better Than Sex Mascara which I like, but not as much as Lash Paradise. The only negative that I have about the Lash Paradise is that it dries out fairly quick, but that's not a big deal considering it's price.
