Ever since I first began using makeup, L’Oréal has been my favorite drugstore beauty brand due to their innovative androids  universal products, high quality formulas, and affordable prices. Today, I will be sharing my five favorite makeup items from their brand.






My favorite base product for everyday is the L’Oréal True Match Lumi Foundation, which has light to medium coverage and a very dewy finish. I love how lightweight this feels, how beautifully it blends, and how natural it looks, and I highly recommend it if you have dry skin, but still want a luminous, fresh finish. One of things I appreciate the most about the True Match collection is their wide range of shades and undertones — I wear ‘W5 – Sand Beige’.

Another one of my favorites from L’Oréal is the Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation. This is very similar to my True Match Lumi, but has medium to full coverage and lasts even longer, making it ideal for more formal events and photos. I really like how well this covers up my blemishes and how it sets itself instead of remaining tacky. It makes my skin look so polished and radiant, and performs on a level of luxury. For reference, my shade is ‘205 – Natural Beige’.

The L’Oréal Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray is a wonderful alternative to more expensive products on the market because it effectively lengthens the wear time of your makeup. The mist is fine and gentle, melting powder products into the skin while ensuring that face and cheek makeup does not fade or break down throughout the day.

The L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Eyeshadows are one of my all-time favorite formulas; they are intensely pigmented, easily blendable, and very long-lasting. ‘Amber Rush’, a stunning rose gold, is definitely the most used and loved shadow in my collection but I also own and love ‘Bronzed Taupe’ and ‘Continous Cocoa’. If you are looking for a rich metallic shadow, this one is the best, regardless of the price!

L’Oréal never fails to impress me with all of their amazing mascaras and after recently purchasing their newest Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara, I think it is their best one yet! It gives a soft and fluttery false lash effect with maximum length and volume. It does not make my lashes clumpy or stiff and I love the way it defines my eyes in person and in photos. Next time you are repurchasing your favorite high-end mascara, consider giving this one and try and see how you like it — I know I did!
