I was not too impressed with this product. I bought it because i read so many positive reviews about it but to me, this eyeshadow palette is just too ordinary for its price. the colors are nice, but nothing spectacular for $50 price tag. I can do same exact look with a cheaper $10 pallete from nyx and other drugstore eyeshadows such as maybelline, and loreal shadows which also has same colors. This was my first expensive eyeshadow purchase ( all other eyeshadows I own are from drugstores). i find no difference in quality whatsoever. the lasting quality is okay, no better than any of my cheaper shadows. for the same price, you can stock up on alot more eyeshadows at cvs, walgreens or walmart. I would not purchase it again and my advise is to look for dupes for the colors as the quality is the same as drugstore shadows.
My first nude lipstick ever! i never really do nude lips because on my skin tone, most nude lipsticks look too opaque and unnatural. However, this one looks pretty decent especially if i layer a clear gloss over it. Not too matte either which is good. however, it can be a bit drying so applying clear gloss will look good. and also, nude lips always look better with gloss in my opinion. (my skin tone NC40-42)
LOVE this color. one of my favorites. it can go with even heavy eye makeup without looking too crazy. great color for all seasons
love this color for the summer time. its a pretty pinkish coralish color. bright (not neonish) and fun. suits my skintone and lips very well (nc42). stays on all day as long as i dont eat or kiss lol
I like these lipsticks, I have it in toasted almond and tickled pink. both are nice colors. toasted almond is brownish pinkish color, and tickled pink is a shimmery pink color. both are great, i use them alot. i dont like drugstore lipsticks too much, I mainly use MAC lipsticks but I like loreal color riche lipsticks. they have nice color selection and texture is good too. i will be buying more of these. however, i donot think these lipsticks are as nice as MAC lipsticks, i still find MAC lipsticks to be the best in terms of pigmentation, texture and color pay off.
i absolutely love this correcter/concealer. i have it in dark peach. i love how it totally cancels out the darkness under the eyes. it blends so well with my skin and does not crease. the texture is creamy which is great for under eyes. without this correcter, concealer looks very ashy, no matter what concealer I use. its defiantly a must have. it does seem pricey but it lasts a very long time. I bought it over a year ago and i use it almost every single day. a little dab goes a long way. i still have almost 1/4 of the jar left and i think it will still last me for few months at least. So don't get discouraged by the price of this product.
Very good concealer for face ( i dont use it for undereyes). this is the only drugstore concealer that comes in my shade, Deep. (nc42). its great to cover up blemish, acne, and other marks. I dont use it for under eyes because i prefer using liquid concealers for that area. i like that it comes in a stick form so its easy to apply and the texture is also very good.
did not like this concealer at all. defintly not good for under eyes at all because its not creamy and feels dry. i bought it to cover blemish and scars but didnt blend well with my skin
love this blush. very affordable. i love the texture, does not look too shimmery. the color is gorgeous, pinky coralish color, great for any kind of makeup. its not too bright either. I also have this blush in Sandalwood and Blushing rose but i like Coral Sandy beach the best. it looks great on my skin color (indian NC42).

Very good concealer, probably the best drugstore concealer i have tried. its very smooth and does not get cakey which i really like. however, it only comes in 3 or 4 shades i think. I got medium which i feel is a bit light but works okay, honey would have been perfect for my skin tone. overall though, its a good product for price. (my skintone is around NC42).
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Powder

im surprised at the negative reviews and low rating overall of this product here. i recently purchased it and i absolutely love it. it comes in a variety of different colors and skin-tones, such as neutral, warm and cool. it lasts all day and gives a nice matte look yet not cakey at all. i always used mac mineralize pressed powder but i ran out of it and didn't have enough money to buy mac, so i tried this L'Oreal one. i feel like its better than the mac mineralize one that i have been using for ages. im using neutral n5 true beige, ( i was using mac medium dark). the color is a perfect match and its way cheaper than mac.

i love the smell and texture. it does seem expensive but the quantity is alot too compared to other lipblams so i dont feel that its that expensive. it is very moisturizing and smells good.
great shampoo. gives a nice shine and the scent is pleasant. however, the packaging is terrible. its in a tube packaging and half of it leaked out before i noticed. i had to keep it stored in another container.
Hair Color -L'Oreal - Superior Preference Hair Colour
missty86 10/22/2012 11:11:00 PM
even though the color came out good, its the most damaging hair color i have ever used. I have used many different dyes before including L'Oreal excellence but my hair texture was never affected until i use preference. my hair was super shiny before using this hair-dye and now all the shine is gone despite of regular oiling, using sulfate free gentle shampoos, never blow drying or using high heat tools,. its been over a year and my hair is still not shiny... i regret using this dye so much.
I really like this foundation. its great for daytime wear as it's light and sheer. it is buildable. i dont like wearing full coverage foundation for daytime as it looks cakey in daylight. this foundation is good for price too as you get alot of product for $35. it is prefect for daily wear for work or school as it looks natural. i like the packaging. i personally dont like the pump so much as it gets clogged sometimes and i feel like u cant get out the product when only a little bit is left towards the end. I dont like the open jar either coz its hard to take out the right amount and i usually endup getting too much out. the nozzle works best for me
