Product Rave & Review | L’oreal Infallible Eyeshadow

Hello lovelies!

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. My 6 month old has decided that sleep is overrated so we have been quite worthless around here on most days. I think his reflux was bothering him quite a bit so we have him on some new medication and fingers crossed that it helps.

Today, I have a rave/review on a L’oreal Infallible eyeshadow. These are single eyeshadows from the drugstore for about $8 so, they are a little more expensive than a typical single eyeshadow from the drugstore. However, the quality is great. The consistency is quite different than anything I have ever tried before. L’Oreal describes it as a “powder-cream” texture. It is almost a loose pigment that has been pressed but isn’t as solid as a regular pressed shadow. Very interesting, and quite hard to explain. Get ya hands on one girl, you won’t be disappointed. I recommend Bronzed Taupe for your first shade to try out. It’s a great eyeshadow that you can use to create a one shadow look. Because of the shimmer, almost metallic finish of it, and how the light catches it, it looks like you have used two shadows vs only one. I like to pack it all over the lid and then use a fluffy brush to blend it into the crease.

Here are a few pictures of the product and a swatch. Notice the little stopper. Don’t throw it away! It keeps the product in place, I’m guessing. But, it actually says on the stopper “Do not discard.”

Review: Revlon Lash Potion Mascara

20130622-233127.jpg

I picked this up a couple of weeks ago at CVS. It is a new mascara from Revlon that comes in 3 shades: Blackest Black, Black, and Brown. The pretty packaging pulled me in and so did the claims…

What it claims to do: Spellbinding Volume. Supernatural Length.
Magically transform lashes to lush, long and lustrous. A potion with strengthening proteins drenches lashes for volume. Triple-groove wand combs through for clump-free length.

Now first off, it isn’t clump free. So that was a huge disappointment. Second, it doesn’t lengthen as much as I hoped and isn’t as buildable as I want because of the clumping. If you do two light coats you can get away with little to minimal clumping as seen in the photo on my right eye. But, I really like to wiggle the mascara brush into my lashes with each coat and if I do that with this mascara, it starts to clump. I would say it isn’t the worst but isn’t the best I have tried either. I would give it an above average grade of a B+. I prefer my Maybelline The Rocket over this.

Bottom line: I probably won’t purchase this again.
