LOreal Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation Review

L’Oreal Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation Review

I got very excited when I saw L’Oreal Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation (Shade 150 Radiant Beige) at Watsons (P700). It’s rare to find a matte super yellow olive-toned drugstore foundation locally. I liked this foundation the first few times I used it. But I was applying it sheer and buffered with sunblock. It doesn’t look bad as a wash of color-type of base. It can even out my skin tone but it doesn’t do much for skin texture problems. I guess I initially liked it because it’s yellow AF. As for the claims…   No Transfer: Not True It’s…

Toss or Keep: L’Oreal True Match Super-Blendable Foundation Review + Comparison Swatches

Project Toss or Keep — where I would use one foundation for most of the month and decide if I would toss or keep it. I was looking to replace my L’Oreal Lucent Magique when I first saw the True Match Super-Blendable line. Unfortunately, I didn’t match with any of their “W” colors. The sales assistant (SA) almost forced me to settle with W4 instead. To be fair, it was a good recommendation since W4 was indeed the closest match out of all available shades. However, I’m really particular about getting the right undertone when it comes to foundations. Color A few weeks after…

Toss or Keep: BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Review + Other Foundations I’m Keeping

Project Toss or Keep — where I would use one foundation for most of the month and decide if I would toss or keep it. I kind of cheated when I chose BECCA to kick off this series. I started with something easy for motivation. I already tried letting go of this foundation last year just because of the scent–like old school makeup. I decided to hold on to it again and found a way to make it work by setting it with a heavily scented finishing powder that I like. Based on reviews, most people don’t seem to be bothered by the scent at all,…

Kick-off: The Toss or Keep Series

Before anything else, let me clarify that when I say “toss”, I mean, either sell or give away — not literally toss in the trash, unless the thing is expired. Last May, I did a foundation inventory.  I had 10 face bases at the time and at some point I was able to bring the number down to 5. Now I’m back up to 13 (Shiseido Sun Protection Stick Foundation not in the photo): I thought of doing the project pan strategy where I would deliberately use just one product until I use it all up. But then, I thought, that would…

Hard Truths: 20 Days of Foundation Challenge (Update for Weeks 3 & 4)

I did it! It was a struggle for me to finish this. There were days when I didn’t feel like wearing any makeup. I found out a few interesting things about myself because of this challenge. I realized that I like wearing makeup when I’m angry. E likened it to war painting. It made sense to me now why I made sure I had makeup on when I raised a complaint at the bank (after finding out that something went wrong with my online account.) Another thing I realized is that I don’t have the motivation to wear makeup when I’m sad. Hence, the struggle. WEEK 3:…

Kick off: 20 Days of Foundation Challenge

I’ve been enjoying the installments of Carina’s 20 days of lipsticks so much that I decided to do something similar: with face bases. If you’ve read my previous posts, you would know that I’m not a daily foundation wearer (includes other face bases e.g. bb creams and tinted moisturizers). Don’t ask why I have 7 ‘foundations’.
