L'Oreal VS. Revlon REVIEW!!

Hey Ladies! I got a request to do a review on the L'Oreal Infallible and Covergirls Outlast Lip Color. However, when I went to Rite Aide to pick up the CG, they were out of all there colors except a color that was waay to nude.  So I decided it would be interesting to pick up the Revlon Just Bitten since it was a good $4 cheaper AND it was 40% off....  the CG was about the same price as L'Oreal.

                            Revlon Just Bitten in 'Crave'  10 minutes after applying
                                RJB 10 minutes since applying
                                        RJB one hour since applied
                                                      Lip color part
                                       Gloss is the white tip

        L'Oreal Infallible in 'Beyonce' red 10 minutes since applied
                            L'Oreal 10 minutes since applying
                                      One hour since applied

                                                      Gloss/ 2nd part

Revlon Just Bitten in ' Crave' PLUM 

  - Really nice plum color for fall/ winter
  - felt nice on my lips.. didn't feel to matte and dry like
  - does seem to stay on the LIPS and not migrate
  - The price is only $8.50 at Rite Aide 
  - Easy to apply 
  - did not start to flake


  - will leave a light shimmery mark on whatever it is that you put your lips on
  - the marker tip is easy to apply, but i almost felt like i needed to shake it or something to get more color out
  - not much gloss comes with it

L'Oreal Infallible in 'Beyonce' RED

 - Gorgeous red color, very bright
 - will last a long time if you keep applying the gloss
 - for the most part it is smudge proof/kiss proof

  -  the 1st step is so matte that it makes your lips feel very dry until you put the gloss on
  - your lips have to be completely free from any type of gloss or chapstick or it will not apply right
 - if you do not keep applying the gloss it will start to flake off and trust me.. it's not pretty! 
 - a little difficult to apply b/c it's a bright red!!  must be careful, would recommend a lip liner 1st!

All in all I think both products are good in their own way. I HATE the dry feeling L'Oreal gives, Revlon does not give me this feeling. Both do have good staying power.. I feel like you def have to touch up a little more with gloss on L'Oreal OR it WILL start to flake off. The Revlon did not flake on me like L'Oreal did. I prob favor Revlon a little more PLUS it's cheaper. Revlon was $8.50 and L'Oreal was $11.99. You can usually buy these two on sale at your local drugstore. Revlon was 40% off, L'Oreal was buy one get one for 50% off.  I also feel like Revlon has a better selection of colors. L'Oreal's colors were all very similar imo.
Almost forgot.. I also like the packaging better with Revlon. I like that you just flip it around rather than having to unscrew the red and then unscrew the gloss. 

I hope this helped you Shweta and everyone else!  Thanks so much for viewing and commenting!!  Have a great day/night! =)

Choosing the right foundation

Choosing the right foundation all starts with  knowing your skin type. Once you find out if you have dry, oily, 
normal,combination or sensitive skin you can choose the shade and type foundation.
Oily skin: works better with water based or oil control foundations. Look for words that say oil free and mattifying.
Normal skin: (the Lucky ones) they can use pretty much and foundation formula that looks good on you. A light, translucent foundation or a heavier matte foundation.

Dry skin: needs a creamy and moisturizing foundation. Powders dry out the skin while matte finishes make dry skin look dull and blah. lol

Sensitive: oil free, fragrance free and allergy tested foundation. 

Combination: foundation that is both oil free and hydrating.

  • Apply some foundation to your neck and then swipe just a little onto your jaw line or the inside of your wrist.  
  • Don't try the colors on the back of your hand because the skin there is usually several shades darker than your face.
  • Blend blend blend! Make sure you blend foundation into your skin.
  • foundation should match with your skin tone!!  If it does not match then obviously this color is not the right one for you.
  • Once you have applied the foundation go outside for "Natural Light".
  • You can also buy two color foundations and blend them together to get your desire color.
  • If you have dark skin tone then you should have red or yellow undertones.
  • If you have dark circles under your eyes or dark spots apply a yellow concealer before putting on your foundation
  • If your skin has red patches apply green concealer to even out the tone before  you put on your foundation.
  • Apply translucent powder under the eye to help set the makeup.
  • After foundation is on brush on loose powder to "set" foundation.

Do you have dry skin?

I'm sure many of us on here suffer from dry, itchy skin in the cooler months!  Here are some helpful tips to help with the problem. =)

1. Don't shower or wash hands in HOT water. The hot water takes the moisture out of your skin! 
2. Apply lotion immediately after showering and washing hands. My mom has the softest skin ever, she swears the reason she has this is b/c she never completely dries off after a shower, she mixes the lotion with the damp skin. Worth a try?! 
3. Antibacterial soap in public places can be harsh on hands too.  Also, using Olive Oil can help keep your cuticles soft!  
4. Try to use body wash instead of bar soap. 
5. Dry feet? Put on a thick lotion or whatever you got on at bedtime and layer with some heavy duty thick socks, and sleep in this over night. Your feet will feel softer in the morning! 
6. New studies show that taking Omega 3 fish oil pills may help skin stay hydrated.
