Hey doll hey. Today I review a full face of Loreal cosmetics. The only thing I didn’t purchase was a bronzer because the 2 that Loreal has are a bit too shimmery for me. I also thought I had the Loreal Makeup Setting Spray but I didn’t so I used a different setting spray. So lets get started….
Loreal Infallible Glow-Lock Illuminating Primer ($10.99 at Target): A+ You get 1 fluid ounce of product in the tube. It’s billed that it primes for makeup, perfects and illuminates while it hydrates skin for a better makeup application. This primer does not have any glitter in it but it has a shimmer to it. It felt hydrating and left my bare skin looking radiant and healthy. It does emphasize pores so you will need to go in with a pore blurring primer but foundation went on over this primer beautifully. I like this primer more than I liked the Loreal Magic Lumi Light Infusing Primer. It’s a great dupe for the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter, it’s not as shimmery as the BECCA one is but the effect under foundation comes out being almost identical.
Loreal Infallible 24-HR Fresh Wear Foundation ($11.99 at Target): A++!! You get 1 fluid ounce in this pumped bottle. It comes in 40 shades with 10 shades for deeper skin tones. This foundation is billed as being a medium-to-full buildable coverage that lasts all day and allows the skin to breathe. The formula’s three oil absorbers resist sweat, water, and transfer. The ultra-thin liquid goes on smoothly to give a fresh, healthy-looking complexion that lasts. This formula is very thin and more on the watery side of the foundation spectrum. This is a dewy foundation that blends out like a dream! It does not set down so you do need to set it with powder, but you do not need a lot of powder to lock this foundation in place. I tested this foundation on the back of my hand and i can honestly say this is not a water resistant foundation… other then that claim being debunked this foundation is amazing!! It doesn’t emphasize texture on the skin, it melts into the skin flawlessly, and it did not take a lot to blend it in. I am so going to love using this foundation. If it works this well every time I use it I will definitely be repurchasing this one.
Loreal Infallible Full Wear Concealer ($5.99 at Target): A- You get .33 fluid ounces of product with a big sized doe-foot applicator. The shade I chose was way too dark for me so I used a bit of foundation mixer to lighten it …. see the picture above for before and after with the mixer. It’s offered in 25 shades with 13 shades for deeper skin tones. It’s billed as being full coverage with a flawless matte finish and as being a multi-use formula doubling as a contour/highlight product. This formula does set down and does not settle into my fine lines, however without setting this one it did crease on me … I just patted it out and set it down with a powder and it hasn’t creased the rest of the day. This is a thick concealer and a little goes a long way. It doesn’t completely cover dark circles under the eyes so a little color correcting is needed, but it was a very pretty concealer. I may try to do some cream contouring with the shade I have since their claims are that it can be used to contour… I need a bit more time with this product to see if I will repurchase it but it seems to be a great concealer.
I used my Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte 16-HR Powder to set my face … I already have graded this powder and have done several reviews on it so I will not be including it here… spoiler … I love this powder very much.
Loreal Paradise Enchanted Palette ($11.99 at Target): A You get .25 ounces of product in this palette. This palette is scented… it’s suppose to smell like peaches but it just smells like peach candies and is not heavenly scented so if you are sensitive to scents you should be OK with this one. The shadows are very pigmented but a tiny bit chalky. The formula is finely milled. The shadows blend out easily and layer on each other well… there is no muddling or patchiness when blending one shade into another one. This is a ton of kick back with this palette and some fallout with the matte shades and tons of fallout with the shimmer shades. I always do my eyes first so that doesn’t really bother me too much as I can just clean it up with a bit of Bioderma on a cotton pad. This palette is amazing, however I scored it lower because there is glitter in the shimmers and there is a moderate amount of glitter fallout. Other then that it’s a great palette to own. I’ll continue to use it, but I think I may have to use the shimmers with a glitter glue to prevent the glitter fallout.
Loreal Infallible Longwear Eye Pencil ($7.99 at Target): A+++!!! You get .042 ounces of product in this pencil. It comes in 15 shades. This is billed as a long lasting waterproof creamy eyeliner…. and it’s a true claim. I purchased 2 shades, black and nude. Both colors gave me a hard time removing the swatches, I had to scrub pretty hard to get them off. This pencil doesn’t smudge, doesn’t bleed, doesn’t transfer, and doesn’t fade. They are so long lasting, in fact, that I haven’t even needed to reapply the nude to my waterline all day. They both went on smoothly, without skipping over the delicate skin of my lids and without tugging at the delicate skin of my waterline. I can tell this two pencils are going to be staples in my makeup routine and I will most certainly be repurchasing them when I use out.
Loreal Voluminous Base ($6.79 at Target) and Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara ($6.79 at Target): Both these items I have reviewed and mentioned numerous times so I won’t bore you …. I just will say they are A+++!!!! items for me and ones that I can not live without.
Loreal 24-HR Infallible Eye Shadow ($6.99 at Walmart): A+ You get .12 ounces of product in each pot. I have two … in the picture above I have the one on the left is Endless pearl and the one on the right is Amber Rush. This shadow comes in 21 shades. It’s billed as being a revolutionary formula that fuses the ease of a powder with the velvety caress of a cream to create a unique hybrid that glides on effortlessly. This eye shadow is a spot on dupe for the Hikari Cream Pigments. They are buttery and blend on to the lids smoothly, with a high color payoff. I really enjoyed using this product and am planing to purchase more shades.
Loreal Colour Riche Monos Eye Shadow ($2.99 at Target): A+++ You get .12 ounces of product in each compact. It comes in 20 shades. It is billed as having gel-to-powder technology. I can honestly say it is a gel to powder finish as the one I purchased came broken and all I had to do was push the product down into the pan and it healed the break. In the picture above it is the one in the middle. The shadow is highly pigmented and has no kick back or fallout. It blends and buffs in so perfectly. I am wanting more shades and I normally pass on single shadows. Great little find.
Loreal Brow Stylist Definer Ultra Fine Tip Shaping Pencil ($7.99 at Target): C+ You get .003 ounces of product in this self sharpened pencil. It comes in 7 shades. I liked the shade of this pencil, but it’s a bit of a let down. It blocked my brows perfectly but when it came time to fill in the brows it got crumbly and beaded up on the areas when my hair is sparse. The more I tried to make this pencil work the more crumbly it got. The more I tried to get it to adhere to the bald areas the more it beaded up. There were lots of gaps in the brow line, I just couldn’t get this to work for me. It made a good blocking pencil and that is the way I will use this pencil, I just wont be using it to fill in my brows anymore. I really wanted this one to work out…. it’s a pass for me after I use it up.
Loreal Brow Stylist Boost & Set Volumizing Brow Mascara ($5.29 at Target): B- You get .10 ounces of product. It comes in 4 shades. The wand on this product is bizarre. It was difficult to use but once I got going it became easier to use. The product globed up on my brow hairs and I had to use a spooly to distribute the product into the brows… it skips over the bare areas and so I used a brush to apply product there. It holds the brows in place without being too crunchy or too flaky. It was better than the pencil, but I have other brow gels that work better than this one. I’ll use it up but I wont repurchase.
CHEEK and LIP PRODUCTS:
Loreal True Match Super-Blendable Blush ($7.99 at Taget): A- You get .21 ounces of product in the compact. It comes in 10 shades. This was a beautiful blush however it has glitter in it. I guess it’s meant to be a satin but the glitter is too big to pass as a satin. It blended in beautifully and buffed on to the skin without being patchy but the glow is a bit to off putting for me. I really love the shade I chose and will continue to use it, however I will forgo highlighter on the days that I use this blush. I don’t see me purchasing other shades because of the glitter in it but I definitely will use up the blush that I purchased because it is a nice blush, I just prefer matte or demi matte blushes.
Loreal True Match Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette ($11.99 at Target): B+++ You get .26 ounces of product in this palette … mine had a mishap in the mail and the two lightest shades arrived shattered so I was only able to use the top right shade as the bottom right shade is too dark as a highlighter for me. They offer 2 color stories for this product. It’s a good highlighter but it has a ton of glitter in it… this melts into the skin once you set your face with setting spray but when you wipe it off a ton of glitter is left behind …. I’ll use this once in a while but I don’t see me reaching for it often because of the glitter it leaves behind…. see the next picture for what I mean….
Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick ($5.99 at Target): A+++ You get .13 ounce of product in the bullet. They 42 shades. This lipstick is super creamy for being a matte lipstick. The color payoff is amazing. It has that classic Loreal Lipstick scent to it that dissipates as time goes on. I did notice it’s not the longest wearing lip color I’ve tried from the Loreal line, but it did last a descent amount of time. It wears down evenly and does not feather. I forgot how much I like the Loreal lipstick line and may have to purchase a few more shades.
Loreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick ($7.99 at Target): A- You get .12 ounces of product in the bullet. It comes in 16 shades. This lipstick feels like a lip balm. It’s so creamy and so slick that alone it would not wear well, but it does layer over lipstick very well. It’s not long lasting I had to reapply at least 7 times today, but the feel of this lipstick is so good that I didn’t really mind reapplying it. It’s pretty pigmented for being as emollient as it is. Even though it’s not long lasting I am definitely purchasing other shades …. I will use them sort of the same way I use lip gloss, as a lip topper.
Well That’s all for now dolls. Stay tuned tomorrow, I’ll be doing a full face of Revolution Pro (Makeup Revolution) makeup and review. Hope your night or day is going good and remember, save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
