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.

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

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.

Mascara -L'Oreal -Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

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.

This is the world's most PERFECT foundation. I'm completely obsessed. I have tried EVERY SINGLE FOUNDATION ON THE MARKET, from 10 dollars to 150 dollars. I am 48 and have dryer skin, and am very fair. I can't even believe this foundation....it is SO natural and gorgeous and lasts ALL DAY. I want to wear this forever, but since I love it so much I'm sure L'Oreal will discontinue it. Ugh. Anyway, this is the HOLY GRAIL of foundation.

I really like this conditioner paired with the shampoo from this line. Both work well on my oily scalp and dry ends hair. Do I have frizz issues? Yes but I do no matter what I use esp when I blow dry. I use other products to deal with smoothing. I love that this keeps my scalp oil free longer than many shampoo/conditioners out there and doesn't aggravate my hair. I love the smell and I love the price. When I have time, I also use the mask, which is outstanding for my oily scalp.

Where have you been all my life?!? My scalp is oily but my hair ends to be a bit dry due to the chemical processing and blow drying, etc. My scalp is totally oil free for nearly two days when I use this line. It does not make my ends feel drier. I do have frizz issues regardless of what I use (curly, fine hair). I can deal/combat frizz with other products but I hate using a shampoo or conditioner that makes me oilier or worse...greasy. This has been a God send. When I have time, I also use the mask in this line.

As a makeup junkie, I must tell you that this is a hidden gem in the world of drugstore makeup.

For one, I am someone who suffers from old acne scars (i.e. pit scars, box and rolling scars) and used to buy the Clarins Instant Smooth Primer and would pay $ 38.00 per jar. Mind you, it lasted me for so long but having to spend that money on a primer was just too much for me considering I have dupe from the drugstore.

The secret of this primer is the way it makes all of my textures a little less textured. Yes, it can get oily. However you will need to do the following steps to apply this:

Application: Don't apply this primer like your lotion type primers by massaging it to your skin - this is a BIG NO!!!!!!!

You have to pat this primer on to your skin. I repeat "pat" on to your skin. Wait for at least 2 minutes before you apply your foundation and you'll thank me for it.

Also, a little goes a long way. Start with a tiny amount and add as needed.

I hope that L'Oreal will never stop making this. It is truly an amazing primer!
