Review: L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadows

28 Feb

Hello everyone! Sorry for a late night post today but hey it’s something super awesome!

Description: Smooth, creamy eyeshadow that won’t fade, crease and is waterproof. The shades purchased were Hourglass Beige (yellow based beige shimmer) and Forever Pink (light frosty pink with shimmer).

Review: These have been out in Canada for a while but I finally got around to picking them up and testing them out and I’m just going to say that I am impressed. I really like these for quick makeup days and also for days I spend more time of my makeup in the morning. I got two pretty much neutral shades but they are great for an everyday look I sometimes wear Forever Pink and some liner and call it a day it’s that simple and easy. I found that brushes don’t work well with this type of formula it’s a cross between a pressed pigment and loose pigment but feels like a cream eyeshadow (yeah it’s that smooth). A sponge-tip applicator or your finger works best using this. Pigmentation just blows you out of the park it’s really pigmented and there are now matte shades available in the line. It stays on for about 6-8 hours without primer and more than 8 hours when used with a primer. I’ve tested these in the shower and they stay on but if rubbed they will come off. The only quib I have is the packaging it just feels a little awkward to carry around with the square-like base and circle cap. Overall, this is a really great drugstore product I love that drugstores are really stepping up the makeup game.

Cost: $9-13 CDN @ local drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would they work really great and stay on forever! Definately would love to pick up more shades if they weren’t so expensive…

Review: Dior Addikt Lipstick in 422 Tokyo

29 Jul

Hello everyone! Another high-end post today I think I’m on a high end makeup kick… anyways, onto the review.

Product Description: This lipstick is described as a hydrating lip color and has a hydrating and voluminzing property while giving color and high gloss shine. 422 Tokyo is described as a sheer peachy pink.

Review: First off, packaging. The packaging is pretty dense and has a heavy weight to it (the weight of luxury?) and the end opens up with a doorknob type feature at the bottom of the tube. The outside sports a nice shiny effect with multi color reflections and has Dior raised on the edge on one side. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning for lipstick packaging. The formula is a pretty good formula it does provide a nice sheen to your lips and is a pretty shade. I think the peachy pink shades work well for most skintones and it does have some micro shimmers in it. There is no scent to them and for complaints I surprisingly don’t have any (and it’s not like I don’t have any because of the brand/luxury of it). A great lipstick for those willing to spend money on it (my wallet practically died).

Cost: $28USD /$31CDN @ Sephora or Dior counters

Would I recommend this product? Yes I would totally recommend this product for those who are interested in the formula and are willing to spend a good amount of money on their lipstick. I will totally repurchase this lipsitck line whenever I find some money or win the lottery.
