I broke down and bought a new concealer, like I really needed another one, I know! When I was in the drugstore I saw the new L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Crayon Concealer and I just had to try it. My first thought was “that will go great in my purse makeup bag”. See, it was a necessary purchase:)
Thanks for joining me for my January 2013 Favorites!
After a year of trying this and that from the drugstore I am ready to render my opinions on the Best of Beauty 2012: Drugstore Edition! Drugstore makeup has really stepped it up. There were some very exciting releases and some long time favorites as well. Check out what I found to be the best in drugstore beauty!!

L’Oreal has really shocked me, in a good way, with one of their new releases. Its the L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain. I was at Ulta and was very intrigued when I saw the new display. I grabbed 2 colors to give it a try.
When I got to the car I noticed 2 things. The first thing I noticed was that the applicator was virtually the same as the YSL Glossy Stains. The second thing I noticed was that they smelled virtually the same too. Continue reading Review: L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain
I’m not going to lie, I laughed a little when I read about the Diorshow New Look mascara ad being banned in the
UK because Natalie Portman’s eyelashes were too long. Who would have thought it?
The UK Advertising Standard’s Authority ruled on October 24th that the Dior ad “must not appear again in its current form”. They found that there were post production techniques used that might mislead consumers about the efficacy of the mascara. Portman’s lashes were enhanced using Photoshop CS5.1. You might wonder why the ASA investigated this particular ad, well I have the answer. The investigation arose out of a complaint filed by L’oreal. Continue reading Dior Ad Banned In The UK! Those Eyelashes Are Too Long to Girl!!
Good news, Loreal has a great new formula in their new gel eyeliner. I picked up one of the new Loreal Infallible 24 hour Lacquer Liners to give it a test drive. I had high expectations and was not disappointed.
This is what Loreal says about them:
“L’Oreal Infallible Lacquer Liner 24H for eye design that is simply sophisticated. 24 hours of flawless, fade-free color with a unique lacquered finish. Mistake-proof application plus the ability to customize your line with a smooth-gliding brush. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. ”
These gel liners do have some shine, but if you don’t like that you can always put a matte shadow of the same color over them. They last all day without budging or fading. We will never know if they last 24 hours because I don’t leave my makeup on for 24 hours, not even in the interest of science. LOL It comes with a brush that is okay. Its not my favorite, but I don’t hate it. It doesn’t come to a fine tip, so its a little “different”. Its not mistake proof, no gel eyeliner is. I’m not sure why Loreal says that the liner is mistake proof. Perhaps its because they never met me. I made a mistake with the brush on my first attempt trying to figure out how best to use it. The formula glides on smoothly and is very pigmented. It did not bother my sensitive eyes.
I’ll pick these up in the future instead of the Mac Fluidlines and Bobbie Brown gel eyeliners because I believe they preform just as well. Of course, if Mac or Bobbie Brown have a cool color I’ll pick that up too, but for the basic black, brown bronze, etc, Loreal has my vote.
The Laquer Liner retails for $9.99 at Ulta. It comes with the eyeliner brush. You can also get them at any drugstore, but the price may vary, as is the way with drugstore items. Different drugstores charge different amounts.
So have you tried these? I’d love to hear your view on them!
I purchased these items and was not compensated for this review. As always, these are my own, honest opinions.
