Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Makeup

foto

Oh Lumi...where do I start? So, right off the bat I'm going to tell you that this is probably my favorite drugstore foundation and it actually just might be my favorite foundation across the board. I bought it when it first came out and loved it so much that I finished another 4 bottles of it or something and tbh I hadn't used it in quite awhile (about a year or so).
I've been going through a foundation crisis lately, trying this and that and overall disliking everything I've tried while spending a fortune. I decided to pick up a new bottle of this stuff remembering how much I liked it and omg, why didn't I go back to this sooner?!

This foundation gives me the perfect amount of coverage for my combination skin. I have fine lines (I'm 34), larger pores on and around my nose and I get the occasional breakout. I find it covers redness really well even though it's more of a Medium coverage. I can even get away with skipping concealer altogether with this foundation.

This foundation not only gives me a really natural lit from within glow, but it evens out my skin tone beautifully, does not pool, crease or accentuate my pores which is miraculous, it doesn't cling to dry patches, it doesn't look cakey or heavy and it doesn't break me out (which is weird because every other L'Oreal foundation does....especially my arch nemesis Infallible and it doesn't matter which one). It looks natural and beautiful in every light which is a huge deal for me. It is buildable without becoming too heavy looking.
Honestly, I get more compliments on my skin when I wear Lumi than any other foundation I've ever used. I just used it for the first time in ages, went out shopping and had TWO ladies ask me what I use for skincare. I told them it was this foundation and they looked at me like I was on crack (no offense to crack users).

This foundation blends beautifully into my skin. I use a beauty blender primarily but I've had good results from brushes as well (just picked up the Kevyn Aucoin foundation brush and the KVD lock it edge foundation brush and can't wait to try them with it). This foundation sets with more of a satin finish once it's dried down and isn't as dewy as you'd expect even though your skin looks luminous and dewy. It doesn't make my oily areas look more oily and for the most part my skin doesn't feel more oily than it typically does. I do have to blot a few times throughout the day but that is typical for me, especially in TX heat and humidity.
I will say it is not transfer proof, but seriously, what is?

I don't find it oxidizes at all on me. I use the shade N1-2 and it matches my skin peeeeerfectly! Seriously nothing has really matched my skin this well and I've tried a ton of foundations recently. I love how extensive the shade range is for this foundation. If you're not sure if you're cool or warm, the neutral range might be your best bet. I lean toward yellow undertones but I also have a slight pink undertone as well. Warm foundations typically make me look too orange and cool undertones can wash me out. The neutral really works well for me.

All in all this is a fabulous foundation imo. Everyone is different and has different reactions to different products and what works for some may not work for everyone. For me, it's a total win and definitely gets a HG status. I don't really plan on changing up my foundation game anytime soon now that I've been reunited with my Lumi.

I would definitely recommend it for those that want a good Medium coverage that don't want or need a full coverage, especially if you find that full coverage tends to look too heavy or cakey or powdery on your skin. I'd also recommend it to those that like luminous products without looking like you're just wearing glitter. If you're a matte gal or guy, you may not like it.

Since I have combo skin and it works well for me, I'd recommend it for combo skin. I could maybe see an issue if you're oily all around as far as wear but perhaps with a good primer and setting powder it may be just fine. For dry skin I think this would be pretty hydrating, as it doesn't cake or accentuate my drier areas or any dry patches from breakouts.

I'm really glad L'Oreal chose to keep the Lumi line. Obviously it sells well enough that they've made it part of their permanent line, and with good reason. It's definitely a keeper in my book.

Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Infallible Paints Eyeshadow Metallics

on 7/25/2017 5:16:00 PM

Meh. I got this on Saturday in the shade "Rose chrome" because I saw a youtuber saw it was a really pretty peachy color and she even used it as a highlighter. I've been in the market for a peach highlighter and actually picked up Laura Geller peach glow highlighter the same day. I looked at both and noticed they looked similar but wanted to try both, especially since this is marketed as an eyeshadow and not a highlighter. I don't like this. For starters, $9 for a single shadow? Damn, some drugstore stuff is getting up there in price these days. At least this brand you can use coupons on at Ulta. Secondly, this product is hard. I expected it to be soft and maybe creamy but it's hard. I used a stiff brush and had to kind of dig it against the product to pick anything up. It's sheer. It's a light peachy pinky rose gold color. I'm sure you could wet your brush and make it more intense, but I don't want the extra work. I didn't really like it as a highlight, either. It reminded me a bit of the LG peach glow, pinky and light, which isn't what I was going for. This is pretty as a sheer wash but honestly, i'd rather have my money back instead of keep this in my collection. I can find something better/cheaper or I already might even have something. I know I have a rose gold pigment from WNW, it may look similar if I sheer it out. Oh well, i'm glad I tried it but it goes back tomorrow. There is a taupe color I think and I MIGHT try it in the future but i'm not positive.

Mascara -L'Oreal - Miss Manga Rock waterproof mascara

I have heard bad things about this mascara but for me I really like it. I think most of the negativity comes from it being a little bit hard to use, as if you don't have a light hand it can give you spider lashes. For me this is one of the best waterproof mascaras I have tried. It doesn't flake or smudge, it stays all day long but it can be a little hard to take off. I use cold cream to take of my makeup and I do have to go in a second time on my eyes just to make sure I get all of it off. That being said; my eyelashes have never looked better, I get long lashes with very few spaces in between. I don't mind having a little space between my lashes but it can go overboard very easily with this wand. Overall I really enjoy this mascara.


Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof

I've been using this for 2 months now, and the tube shows no sign of drying out. I'm really happy that this still is not flaking on me. This lengthens my lashes, and adds volume. It doesn't curl your lashes by itself, but it holds a curl very well. It gives this fanned out look I love.

Everytime I use this mascara I wipe it off on a tissue several times before applying to my lashes. I never go past 2 coats, because then my lashes will start to stick together. I don't mind this because the results I get are great.

This has not irritated my eyes. I can tell this will become my go to mascara in rainy or hot weather because it does not smudge. It really is waterproof, but is not difficult to remove at night.

This lengthens, adds volumes, and holds a curl. It's important to wipe off extra mascara before you apply. Usually when I do this I can apply multiple coats, but with this mascara formula it isn't a good idea to go past two coats.

+ 2 coats lashes will start to look unnatural, and stick together. The first coat they look pretty good.

In a Wayne Goss video he suggested curling the lashes, applying one thin coat of waterproof mascara, then regular mascara. I see myself using this method with this mascara.

I have sensitive eyes and this hasn't irritate them. No smudging or flaking

Moisturizers -L'Oreal - Hydra Genius (Normal/Dry Skin)

I got a sample of this for free from their site.

My skin is dehydrated. It loves hydration and being moisturized. So of course I was going to see if this works.

What I like: the consistency and pump bottle.

What I dislike: the cost and the acne it gave me.

I had clear skin. I thought I'd add this to my routine. It was the only thing I changed. I woke up with about 6 acne spots the next day. Which for me is rare. But it's a tell tale sign that my skin does not like this product.

I also do not like that my chin was flake today. I'm not sure what was going on with that. I've never had that problem before with any other skincare.
