L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Powder & Concealer | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

I have super dry skin so I couldn’t wait for these to come out. I have been putting these to the test for two weeks now. Keep reading to see how I liked them.

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Powder

 

 

Review:

I bought mine in the color 24 Natural Beige. The color is perfect for me. It’s not to yellow and not too pink, it’s the perfect neutral shade for my skin tone. 

When I saw this I thought it was just going to be a normal powder that is suitable for dry skin. But I was wrong, this is just a nice silky powder that has a slight sheen to it. Half of the powder looks like a highlighter and the other half is just powder. When I first saw that it was a turnoff, but I actually like it now.

The powder is silky and smooth and when you swirl your brush in the two it really just gives your face a beautiful glow. It isn’t glittery or shimmery, it’s just a nice glow. I love using it as a finishing powder after my foundation and concealer is done.

I think the only downfall is the price. I think it should be priced more around the $8.99 mark. If you use your ULTA $3.50 coupon then it’s definitely worth it. 

 

L’ORÉAL Infallible Pro Glow Concealer

 

 

Review:

I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this!! Concealer can be tricky if you have dry skin and finding a drugstore concealer is a little more tricky. 

I bought three shades: 02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, and 04 Natural Beige

This concealer definitely isn’t a true full coverage concealer. It’s lightweight and a thinner consistency. You can build it up a bit but it looks better with one coat. 

It doesn’t cling to dry patches and looks nice and hydrating under the eyes. It isn’t glowy or shimmery in anyway, I would say it’s just hydrating.

I personally like more coverage in a concealer but it’s nice on natural days or light makeup days. 

The concealer blends out really nicely and looks good throughout the day.

I was ,however, disappointed in the shade selection, I got three and they still seem too dark. They also have a really yellow tone. I like mine to be a little more pink or neutral.

I like the packaging and the doe foot applicator. 

It’s a pretty good concealer for the drugstore I just wish it was a little more full coverage and I think they need to come out with more shades. 

Swatches:

02 Creamy Natural, 03 Nude Beige, 04 Natural Beige

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter | Review & Swatches

Affiliate

 

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter

What it is: 
A heart-shaped highlighter with a silky smooth texture that allows for a buildable pearl radiance.

What it does: 
Using an exclusive liquid-to-powder formula, Love Light takes the best of powder, liquid, baked and cream formulas to create unparalleled color payoff for a pearl radiance and silky smooth texture. It features a luminosity boosting agent and high pearl consistency that instantly brightens. It delivers gorgeous color payoff with a pearl, radiant finish in universal shades that impart a flattering glow and an eye-catching, metallic shine.

What else you need to know: 
Too Faced Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Jerrod Blandino was inspired to capture that ethereal glow that occurs only when a woman is in love, so he went to Italy to discover an exclusive, liquid-to-powder formula that enables the light reflecting pigments to float in the powder. Unlike traditional pressed powders that crush the pearls during the pressing process, Too Faced’s innovative technology keeps the pearls spherical so they’re able to reflect light from any angle.

 

 

 

REVIEW:

These highlighters are so beautiful! I was immediately drawn by the packaging and the geometric shape inside. I didn’t even want to use these because they are so beautiful. They would be so beautiful to keep on display.

Just like the packing the actually highlighter are beautiful themselves. They have the perfect amount of pigment and look beautiful on the skin. They are nicely pigmented and blend into the skin really nicely. I really wish they would have come out with more colors, and maybe they will in the future.

You can use these on your face or as eyeshadows. I personally love the champagne shade – Blinded By The Light. They are all so beautiful and there is a shade for everyone.

There are two different formulas – the top row is shimmer/satin and the bottom row is matte. I personally love matte blushed more and these matte blushes are amazing! All of the blushes are amazing, they are so soft and so pigmented!! They really glide not the face so nicely and blend really well.

REVIEW:

So far I really like this palette. I was nervous because of the colors. They seem really bright and vibrant and I just didn’t know it would look on my skin. I can say that this palette is really pretty!! I think it will be perfect for the summer. I think that in the winter, they aren’t as wearable.

I really like that this palette isn’t like the typical neutral rose toned blush palette. I think they definitely thought out of the box and did an awesome job. I wish that they had other blush palette shades to choose from besides this one only. I think it they did have a mauve palette, a deep plum palette, and maybe a bright pink palette that they would be a hit.

The formula is really nice and so soft and creamy. They are so pigmented, blend well and last all day! I think that $16.99 is a little pricey but if you can get it on sale pick it up!!
