L’OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation


Happy Monday!!!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

I have been seeing so many reviews for the L’OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, so of course I had to try it out for myself. 

 Classic Ivory

From the L’OREAL website-

Achieve a matte finish that won’t fall flat with this air-light, longwearing liquid formula. Lightweight and creamy, foundation goes on smooth with a demi-matte finish that lasts up to 24 hours—hiding imperfections for a smooth, clear complexion.

Pros-

  • Claims to last 24 hours- I’m not sure if it last that long but it did last for as long as I needed it to last.
  • Beautiful matte finish, that left my skin smooth.
  • Lightweight formula so I didn’t feel it on my skin.

Cons-

  •  I did notice oxidizing on my hand but I didn’t notice it on my face.
  • Classic ivory is still a little to dark for my skin tone. I’m very fair skinned. I wish it was a little lighter.

Final Thoughts-

  • L’OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte foundation is amazing. I had so many compliments on my complexion, which usually never happens. I’m not going to call this my holy grail just yet but it’s in the running. I do recommend this foundation and I will definitely be repurchasing this in the future.

Has anyone tried this foundation and what are your thoughts? What are your holy grail foundations?

Cover girl Colorlicious Lip Lava


  
Hey, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday. It’s pretty chilly here but the sun is shining.

In a recent haul I posted, I purchased the Covergirl Colorlicious Lip Lava. When I saw this at Rite Aide I thought it was shiny and pretty. I love anything shiny..lol So, I had to buy it..right?

From the Covergirl website

Bolder than a balm, glassier than a gloss, more lustrous than a lipstick. The hybrid formula of new Colorlicious Lip Lava combines highly pigmented shades with iridescent pearls for saturated lip color with the high shine of lacquer. Now you can get a lip look overflowing with color, shine, shimmer and glimmer with just one product.

Pros-

  • It’s lasts a long time on the lips
  • The color is gorgeous 
  • Very smooth formula, glides on effortlessly 
  • Brush applicator makes for easy application 

Cons- 

  • A little sticky but I think that’s what makes it stay on your lips for a longer time.
  • It’s transferable.. Not the best for kissing, unless the other person wants shimmering lips.
  • If you don’t like shimmering, shiny lip this isn’t for you.

Final Thoughts-

I absolutely love this lipgloss. It’s true to its claims. For only $7.99, you really can’t go wrong with this lipgloss. I will definitely be looking for other colors in this line. 

Thanks for reading my post. If you have tried the lipgloss, tell me you thought on it.

L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Redcarpet Mascara 


A couple weeks ago, I picked up the L’OREAL Voluminous Redcarpet Mascara, I never used a mascara with a primer, so I was excited to try this mascara.

On to the review!!! 

  
From the L’OREAL website-

Get camera-ready with Voluminous® Superstar Red Carpet Black mascara, our first Primer and Mascara for a show-stopping red carpet look. Super-volumizing primer builds dramatic volume on every lash and creates an ultra-smooth base to maximize mascara impact. Fiber-rich lengthening mascara extends lashes to the extreme. Now infused with light-reflecting pearls that glisten in the night. Red carpet, here you come.

Usually I would have a pro and con list but this review doesn’t need one.

I think this was the worst mascara that I have ever used. One of the problems was that it never looked black, it always had a gray tint to it. No matter how much mascara I piled on it never covered the primer completely. I also noticed that the longer I wore the mascara the shorter my lashes got, it’s like they were shrinking. It was weird. The only good thing about this mascara is that it didn’t flake off.

I definitely will not be repurchasing this mascara. Everyone’s different, so what didn’t work for me, might work for someone else.

Has anyone else tried this mascara? What did you think?

Small Haul


Yesterday after my doctors appointment, I went to Kroger to pick up my prescription and of course the pharmacy is right by the cosmetic aisle. So, had to check out some of the sales. 

 
Products-

  • L’OREAL new extraordinary oil for curly hair shampoo and conditioner. I’ve seen a lot of good reviews on this and thought I would give it a try. I haven’t had a hair cut since I found out I was pregnant and my daughter will be 1 on the 31st, so it’s been a long time and my hair is looking bad. These were on sale for $3.99 each.
  • Maybelline Volum’express the falsies flared mascara in blackest black. I’m always on the hunt for a good mascara. This was only $5.99, so I thought I would give it a try.

That’s it for my haul. I will do a review on these products.

Face Of The Day


  
I seriously take the worst “selfies”..lol 

A couple days ago I hurt my side while hanging up my husbands shirts. I have fibromyalgia and with the added pain of hurting my side, I was having a hard time picking up my daughter. So my wonderful husband stayed home from work to take care of Mattie and take me to the doctor.

Whenever I don’t feel good, I like to do my makeup because it calms me and makes me feel better, if that makes sense..lol

Products-

  • L’OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation.
  • Maybelline Fit Me concealer 
  • Maybelline Fit Me Pressed powder
  • Wet N Wild contouring palette in Dulce De Leche
  • Milani baked blush in Rose D’Oro
  • Wet n Wild setting spray
  • the Balm Mary-Lou manizer

  • Urban Decay eyeliner in Electric

Weight Loss Wednesday 


Today was my weigh in for Weight Watchers. I was a little nervous because yesterday I decided it was a good idea to eat a bag of M&M’s and not one of the small bags but a big bag. I knew if I lost weight this week it wouldn’t be a big number.

When I stepped on the scale and it said I lost a pound, I was so happy that my little M&M binge didn’t ruin my week of eating well.

I also decided that I need to set a weight loss goal. My first goal will be to lose 30 pounds by my birthday, which is July 2nd.  There is no better present to myself than to be healthy for my family.

This week -1

Total -7

I have a long way to go but I know I will get to where I want to be.

Thank you for reading my post.
