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

This is absolutely phenomenal, and I'm not overstating. I've been to several salons seeking this color. Two colorists told me my hair wouldn't take that color well, due to the fact that my natural color is the darkest of dark browns. One colorist said she could attain that color on my hair, but it would take three return trips at $125 per session...not including the first trip. For over $400 I said "uhhh..NO thanks!"

Feria B-61 is *amazing*. That said, I'm seeing a lot of reviews for this product with hair that looks very red in hue...mine turned to a dark ash blonde (extremely close to the picture on the box). I have red and orange undertones in my hair...so I'm not sure what I did differently. That said, I hate red in my hair so I'm glad mine didn't do that.

I will definitely continue to get this product for as long as it's available. However...I *highly recommend* using Joico's new Blue Shampoo for dark hair in combination with this product...or any product you use to lighten your super-dark hair. Purple shampoo is **NOT** the way to go for dark brunettes...I learned that through trial and error, and there aren't many blue shampoos out there.

I'm still trying to figure out how and where to enter a picture, but will add one if I can figure it out.

...and I saved $395 to boot.

Edited to Add: Please do *not* write whiny complaints about this hair dye if you haven't even let your hair grow out from the last box-job you did. I'm reading a lot of complaint-reviews from people who *frequently* color their hair. It's fine to be a color-addict, but it's not okay to write diss-reviews on products, when they all clearly state that you shouldn't be using the product on hair that's been recently colored. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that *natural blue* and *natural yellow* make green. If you start throwing colors on your hair when it already has a color added...you'll end up with split pea soup; that's no product's fault - it's yours.

I love this mascara. It reminds me of Too Faced’s better than sex mascara. With two coats my lashes are dark and full and they don’t fall flat. It doesn’t smudge throughout the day and washes off so easy.

Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Liquid Foundation (All)

This is my - by far - my ride or die drugstore foundation. It stays in place and gives a matte flawless finish. I have combination skin with dry areas and some redness, sometimes a few pimples

I have worn this with and without primer (big no no, but I'm late sometimes) and both works but of course with is better.

I smear it on with my fingers and blend with a Beaty blender and then I set with a sheer transparent powder.

I uploaded a picture above after 9 hours work and it still looks good. Perfect shade and a wide range of shades. I wear golden ivory.


The only downside is the pump which gets a bit messy after a while.

Flakey flakey flakey. I put some on in the AM and had numerous flakes under my eyes and on my cheekbones a mere two hours later. This rarely happens to me with other mascaras.

I have used this foundation for years. The shade 145 Classic Ivory is a perfect match for my fair and very cool complexion. I love this fdn so much I wore it for my wedding in 2015. Wears well on its own but really works best with a primer, especially Hourglass veil mineral primer or NYX angel veil primer. This keeps the formula of the fdn from creasing in my smile lines. Wears like a second skin with no mask like feeling. This stuff does transfer a bit, but I use a light dusting of setting powder and a spritz of UD all nighter and that solves that issue. The only thing that I consider a con with this product is the glass jar packaging. I once dropped my makeup kit on a tile floor and the bottle broke, and I had to clean fdn off of all my makeup and tools and replace the train case, because it wasn't going to come off. Wish it came in a tube like the Infallible fdn line. That being said, I will buy this over and over again and will cry if they ever discontinue it.

I have this in the non-water proof formula. I never buy waterproof mascaras, and I mean NEVER! I prefer to keep the lashes I have. This reminds me so much of Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. The brush is similar, the color of the tube also. I'm not a fan of the brush in either of them, I prefer a thinner brush but I like this better than Too Faced. I can't deal with all the fall out from Too Faced and they are so similar why pay 23.00 when you can pay 9.99 and get the same result with less fall out? I do think 9.99 is too expensive for this drugstore mascara and I got it half off (5.00) at Walgreens when I bought L'oreal Telescopic Intense Looking Lengthening Mascara which I love, one of my favorites. I prefer a more natural look for everyday and my all time favorite is still Lancome Definicils. I've used it consistently for over 10 years, still love it. It's so easy on my lashes but for more thickening and lengthening I do like this one. My main complaint is the fat brush. I repurchase if it's on sale. I go through a lot of mascara because i kind of stick to the throw it out after 6-8 weeks rule but I confess I don't do that with my Lancome unless I had a cold or something.

Not a fan - sort of a “see thru” black and the round tip makes it difficult to apply in a steady line.

I like the brush shape but I found this to give similar effects as CG clumpcrusher it was just clumpier. Length and volume were fine but not worth the added effort of getting rid of the clumps. Would not repurchase.

I really love this foundation. It has a smooth very matte finish but also has a bit of "play time" between application and blending unlike the high end matte foundations I've bought. there is one complaint I have, it kinda burns my skin upon application which I don't understand why so i just ignore it?? call me crazy but besides that I love it!

I wanted to like this so badly that I bought it twice after a bad first experience with it, thinking that I might have gotten a particularly old or dried out one.
Unfortunately both were exactly the same--it dried out my lashes terribly and it took forever to build up.
Two lippies because it didn't transfer, smudge or clump and it separated my lashes pretty well, which I think is a great achievement for a drugstore mascara, but unfortunately it was much too dry for me to ever want to try it again.

I rarely review a product straight away unless it is super incredible or a total garbage. The Infallible Lip Paint Matte in ''Babe-In'' is, unfortunately, the latter - a total DUD.
Where do I begin...from the first application I was struck by how drying this product is, it sucked all the moisture out of my lips, I had to take it off because the more it stayed, the worse it got (and yes, I do realize matte formulas are in no way nourishing, but it is not the case that all matte liquid lips are utterly unbearable like this one!).
It did not dry down, it smeared and bled out of the lines of my lips and did not last even a decent time at all! On top of that, it created this nasty inner rim on my lips, and the cheap plasticky, flowery scent is too overpowering.
I don't consider the price a plus, because for the same amount you can get Maybelline's matte regular lipsticks or even a Milani liquid lippie, both of which are way better!

Mascara -L'Oreal - Telescopic Carbon Black

Wow, ok I have naturally long curly dark lashes. All mascara's seem to work the same on me and don't really affect my lashes or if they do it becomes super clumped together! Iv'e owned lots of mascara's. (Lancome hypnose, lancome big monsier, too faced better than sex, makeup forever, nars, maybelline, etc.....)

But one day I saw some girl in a store with literally perfect seperated lashes so I had to ask what she used. She told me only one coat of the telescopic. I thought she probably is just lucky and has real nice lashes, but I bought this out of sheer curiosity expecting it to be the same as all the other mascara's I tried. Nothing special.

BUT BOY WAS I WRONG. This shit literally seperated each one of my lashes, and gave them an extremely beautiful dolly falsified effect! I have never seen a mascara perform like this before. So if you want perfect fake dolly looking lashes (or natural with one coat) Seriously get this now!! The price is a steal too. Forever changed my lashes!! <3333 you won't ever pry this from my dead cold hands hehe

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

I’ve worn this for a full day, so wanted to write an initial review. I may edit if anything changes, but so far my thoughts are very positive.

About my skin: late 30’s, Classic combination with a very oily t-zone but dry cheeks, slight hyperpigmentation and enlarged pores around my nose. Otherwise, skin is quite clear with minimal texture and no wrinkles.

I am light-medium with neutral to very slightly-golden undertones. I was initially eyeing color 205, but ended up getting 204. 204 blended in quite well - it did have a slightly peach cast in certain lighting, but didn’t look too off.

I prepped my skin with Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream and her Wonderglow, and then applied this foundation with a damp knock-off beauty blender sponge. I used maybe 3 pea-sized squeezes to cover my entire face. I stippled and rolled the sponge to apply. The Concealer that I used with it was Maybelline Age Rewind. Then, I took a big brush and gently rolled the Pro-Glow powder on top to set, but you could probably also use any powder.

The finish is quite luminous - reminds me a bit of Armani Maestro Glow. Coverage is about medium. I would say if you have a lot of texture or blemishes this might not cover everything. As others have mentioned, the texture of the foundation is runny, so be sure to apply in portions of your face and work quickly, and not set the foundation tube on its side while open.

Anyway, I do quite like Pro Glow. It wore decently through the day, and even though I have a cold and kept blowing my nose, it did not rub off too much. I hope it won’t give me the breakouts that other ladies have experienced.

For a drugstore foundation, I am pretty impressed and would recommend.

This is the best hair dye ever! I'm 60 so I've been through a few! No drips , no smell, no mess, easy application ,even application and it does the job. Just perfection. Due to circumstances I had not dyed my hair for over 4 months so it was a mess. I used the dark brown(it is very dark) and the result is excellent. Not a grey in sight.My hair is long.yes i'm 60, but I'm like Demi Moore , I aint cutting it. This left my long hair in excellent condition.soft and healthy.As long as this is avaiable I will never use another hair dye.Love it.

i got a sample of this in a drugstore when they were giving them out . I got spicy blush , its a nude color .
I don't like the color it washes me out . The sent is a berry plastic kind of sent .
It glides on smoothley , but does not last too long it came off a bit with a sip of water , i thought it as going to dry completly matte but it doesn't . It tranfers as it as an averdge lipstick.
