L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss | My Notes and Lip Swatches

Image
//sent for consideration// L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss  is new for Spring and Summer. L'Oreal says that this hybrid formula offers high impact colour, a velvet matte finish and all day comfortable wear. Available in ten shades, I have five to share with you, today. 302 Fuchsia Amnesia is a bright, blue based pink.  304 Rebel Rose is a delicate medium rose pink. 308 Shanghai Scarlet is a bright, clear red. 310 Forbidden Kiss is a rich berry. 312 Rouge Envy is a soft, muted rose red.  L'Oreal describes this formula as an intense, high pigment whipped matte gloss. And... That is where they lose me a little. Matte. Gloss. Huh? Don't get me wrong, the formula is actually quite lovely and the colours are gorgeous and wearable but this liquid lippie is not really matte nor is it truly a gloss.   Packaged in a slim, hourglass shaped tube, there is 0.21 fl oz. of product and it retails for about $10.00 give or take, depending on where you purchase. 

Juvi Mask Hydrating Facial Sheets | My Notes

Image
//sent for consideration// I love a good sheet mask. They are hydrating, refreshing, relaxing and satisfyingly creepy looking when I catch a glimpse of my paper/fabric covered face in a looking glass. A sheet mask I recently received an opportunity to try is  Juvi Mask  Hydrating Facial Sheets with coconut water and aloe vera. Just what is  Juvi Mask ? From their website: I'm a 100% silk-based sheet mask that hydrates your skin & helps you get rid of that tired look. I'm bathed in gentle ingredients like coconut water, aloe vera, rice extract, and willow bark extract.   coconut water helps to naturally hydrate your skin aloe vera soothes and moisturizes rice extract is rich in vitamin E & antioxidants  willow bark extract works as a natural exfoliant to visually minimize your pores. Paraben free, mineral oil free, & with no added pigments, so you can use me whenever you need a quick refresher. Juvi Mask takes care of you, so you can take care of b

#allofthecolours Too Faced Love Flush Blush Wardrobe | My Notes and Swatches

Image
//affiliate link in use// You know how when you buy a really fantastic limited edition makeup item and you think, "I can't wait to show this off on my blog!" Then you leave it lying around and by the time you get to it, it is long sold out and actually showing it on your blog would be a jerk move but you decide to do it, anyway?  Well, guess what? One of my favorite makeup releases is the Too Faced Love Flush Long Lasting 16 Hour Blush . These beautiful, pigmented, easy wearing blushes stole my heart with their beautiful packaging and flower garland and bunny embossed powders. After trying the two I bought, I knew that I wanted all of the colours but at $26.00 each, buying all six wasn't in my budget. Damned budget, anyway. Then, Too Faced released the Love Flush Wardrobe. I bought it as soon as I could afford it then promptly set it aside and admired it until it was too late to feature it. What kind of blogger does that, anyway? This kind. Apparent

Pur Minerals Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation | My Notes

Image
//sent for consideration// From  Pur Minerals , the Complexion Authority comes a foundation that you have to experience to appreciate.  Pur Hydra Fluid Water Serum Foundation  has an encapsulated water complex that drops Swiss Alps water into the skin while the lightweight, silky formula offers light to medium coverage that evens skin tone and imparts a youthful radiance. Packaged in an elegant brushed silver squeeze tube with a polished silver cap to keep the product fresh and offer sanitary dispensing, there is a window that shows the shade so you can see just what you are getting. This foundation applies and blends out easily and smoothly. My preferred method, as with any light, dewy foundation is to use a dampened beauty sponge. The  Cameo Contour Blending Sponge  does a very nice job. Five shades are available. Sadly, Light is a bit too dark for me, right now. I always get a little colour in the Summer and I think that this foundation will work for me, then and
