L'Oréal Paris Infallible 4HR Matte Foundation

Amazing Coverage!

I have been using a lot of different foundations lately. This one has stood out the most for me. It’s got a great smell and texture.

I would say that it has not got “Full Coverage” as said on the packaging. However, it can definitely be built up. I don’t feel the need to use powder because it stays MAtt all day for me.

Honestly a great experience using this foundation! My colour match is great. I would say it is a bit pricey. But it is foundation so I would be willing to spend a little extra for a good foundation.

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

Smooth and lovely

I love this primer. It’s got a thick consistently but its so smooth with you apply it to your face. I use primer every time I apply my makeup and I am so happy that I purchased this. I love the packaging! I also love that it makes my make up last long and makes my foundation look smoother on my face. I battled to find fault with this product!

Palladio Rice Paper

Bad smell but good concept

I found this product has an awful smell. It smells like chemicals. I really love the two sides where you blotch your face on the one side and touch up your powder one the other. I did find the packaging a bit flimsy and being a product for on the go usage if you had to spill water on this it would be damaged because its made from cardboard. I don’t find myself using this often because I don’t really find the need to touch up my powder because my skin is good but when I tried it out I was put off my the smell. Other than that its a good price and would be great for people on the go and in the sun! I love the concept.

Palladio Rice Powder

Smells good but average product

I must say that I really loved the smell of this product. It’s not to over powering and has a light sense on the skin. It’s got a soft feel to it but the appearance of it almost looks as if they never milled it down enough like other powders that could be because it is made from starch. It almost looks clumpy to me . Still great on the skin very smooth. I think they could have worked on the packaging more for me. The packaging probably would not have attracted me to pick it up in store. This lid also doesn’t seal as expected if you dropped it that could be half of it on the floor. I did try this on a hot day and noticed that it kept my foundation looking matt all day. I have never really used powder in a box like this but found it was hard to get the powder out to use it. I had to shake it up with the lid on and then I opened it and it would go everywhere. Overall the one thing that stood out for me was the smell. It is a good price and would recommend it still considering you get a lot in the packaging this could last a while and it does work!

Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Scrub

Lovely and refreshing

I use this every morning and it really give my face a lovely scent and leaves it feeling fresh the whole morning. This works well on my skin and the micro beads are gentle as well.


Great for winter!

I really like this product especially during the dry winter days. Its thick so it moisturizes your skin well. Is also has a smell that is not to over powering!
