Brand Focus: L'Oréal

Ain't gonna lie, it took me by surprise to know how little acquainted I was with L'Oréal, I've always known what they had to offer but just never really gravitated towards it. That all changed in the past three months when I finally bought my first L'Oréal product, which lead to my second... and now I have accumulated quite a few products that I really think deserve a mention! I'll talk you through my favourites...

The L'Oréal Infallible Primer Matte Base (£7.99/35ml) was one of the first few products that I purchased, and this is a silicone feeling primer, that leaves your skin smooth and ready for make-up. For me and my massive pores, this is a must! If I had to compare it, I would describe it as a mix between The Body Shop's Instablur and the Make Up Forever Step 1 Mattifying primer, it's more smooth than the former and more thcker than the latter! On the other end of the spectrum the L'Oréal Infallible Fixing Mist (£7.99/120g) is a recent addition to my collection, and I have to say I've been loving it so far! This does actually set and hold your make-up, and I have noticed that my make-up is fresher for longer and my face is less oiler throughout the day. One tip I want to share is that you shake the product properly before using it so that the powder in the bottom gets distributed in the solution!

A new product that I have been testing out is the L'Oréal Brow Artiste Genius Kit (£9.99) in the shade 'Medium to Dark' and I have been blown away by this, it's a duo that contains a wax and powder, and the colour match is pretty great for my eyebrows, as my eyebrows are a cool-toned ash brown shade The wax controls my eyebrow shape pretty nicely, and then it's easy to just fill in the gaps with the powder! Also it comes with a tweezer and a brush and spooly so you are pretty much set! After filling in my brows I set them with the L'Oréal Brow Artist Plumper (£5.99/7ml), which helps tint the eyebrows slightly and set everything in place, I love using just this product on my lazy days as it just makes everything in the eyebrow department look a lot better.

Moving onto eye's, I've mentioned the L'Oréal Volume Million Lashes Waterproof (£9.99/2ml) in a previous blog, and I am still loving this! It's great at lengthening and fanning out the eyelashes and has a great hold! On day's where I want more Oomph however, I reach for my L'Oréal Superliner (£6.99), I love how black it is! It's got a flexible nib so it's great at getting close into the lash line. I need more practice with this though! I haven't used a liquid liner in months which makes me feel like a beginner again, on the plus side, if you do make mistakes this isn't such a hassle to wipe off!

I think you can see what kinds of products I go for in this post, I love long lasting make-up and I think L'Oréal has done really well with all of these products! I really want to try their new sculpt range, so if you have any recommendations let me know in the comments!

  1. I picked up the Brow Artist Plumper too, it's so quick and easy to use. I really wish I'd paid more attention to the Genius Kit now after your review! And I've been so curious about the Fixing Mist too, you're making me want to go back to Boots and buy everything. I think I'm the same as you were, I've always looked at the L'Oreal Counter but I've never really purchased much from the brand! Great post Anjna! :)


    1. Haha the eyebrow products are amazing. If you like using a powder to fill them in then this is the one! It's not overly pigmented so you don't really make mistakes, but you can build the colour up :) I was shocked at how good the fixing mist really was! I tried the Urban Decay Deslick and this is way better at making my makeup last longer and controlling the oil! When L'Oreal is on offer then you should strike!

  2. ooh the Infallible fixing mist sounds nice; I have been looking for a product like this xo

    1. It is lovely! I literally wear it everyday because it just helps control my oils. I find that I rely less on my powders too!

  3. You guys are so lucky to have an amazing range of Loreal products in England. Were so limited in Japan, i cry. Love this post!

    1. Aw, I have to say you are right, L'Oreal is crazy big here! Most of their products are spot on, they are a tad more expensive than other highstreet brands but they usually do deliver great products!
