As you might have understood, being a student on a budget, I mainly shop my makeup products at the drugstore. I find that I can find really great products (though sometimes it involves a bit of research first) to find quality products. In my opinion, l’OrÃ©al as some great quality products at a reasonable price. Their prices are a tad higher that some other brands but the products are so well-packaged and have an amazing quality-price ratio in my opinion, so it’s worth the extra euros. So I thought that today I would talk about some of my faves.
First, my beloved Infallible 24h-matte foundation. I have already talked about this one so much but to be honest, it took me almost 5 months to think about switching foundation. This product was something I was looking for for so long as it is both amazing on the skin and helps to prevent getting oily (which I get) and have to touch up. As a student, I can’t really put out my powder and brush during a class to touch up so this was a life saver when it was around 30°C in our class at the beginning of term. Plus, when talking with a friend, I realized that, while her high-end foundation lasted around 2-3 months, mine still has a good amount of product in and I bought it in early June and hers is three times the price of the l’OrÃ©al one. Amazing.
The Telescopic mascara in extra-black has been one of my favorite mascaras for so long. I love the tiny wand with the tiny plastic bristles. However, I found that the formula is a bit too wet at first, so let it dry out for around a month and it worked wonders after.
Another one of my faves is the Color Riche Le KnÃ´l eyeliner in 118 Military Green. This one my best friend bought me for my birthday years ago and it’s still going strong. I absolutely love the formula of this one as it is both easy to apply and lasts pretty much all day. I also really love the color which as a bit of metallic in it. It makes my lash line appear thicker while not being as dramatic as a black liner.
I think the Lip Liner Couture by Color Riche in 302 Bois de Rose has been the first lip liner I ever bought. I love the color of this as it’s pretty much a my-lips-but-better color and I really like the formula which makes applying the lip liner easily because it’s not too “wet” (if that makes sense) and it lasts pretty well.
The Color Riche Rouges Ã lÃ¨vres – The reds in Julianne is so great. I really like the color which is a pink nude and it smells so good it’s incredible. It gives a slight shine to the lips that makes them look more plump.
