L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Primer/Base »

L’Oreal’s directions state to let this primer/base dry before applying mascara, but we found this is bad advice, as doing so causes mascara applied afterward to drag over lashes, resulting in a slightly messy-looking application. In contrast to the directions, if you apply mascara with lashes still wet from primer the results look much better, particularly for thickness and separation.

Most blushes come in more shade ranges than the two that L’Oreal offers: Cheeky Dimension and Sexy-Flush. Both are attractive and workable for most skin tones. Worth noting: The color intensity is fairly strong, so a little goes a long way if you have fair to light skin.

Regardless of format, most highlighters come in a wide variety of shades, but that’s not the case here. L’Oreal only offers two colors, Slay-in Rose and Gold is Cold, but both are sheer, attractive, and workable for most skin tones. Given that both shades offered are good, we’re not coming down too hard on L’Oreal. By every other standard, Infallible Longwear Highlighting Shaping Stick passes with flying colors!

This gel doesn’t leave brows feeling stiff or sticky, and as claimed, its waterproof and smudge-proof, holding up admirably through a full day of wear. L’Oreal promises 48 hours of wear, but we promise if you sleep with this on, the results the next day won’t look so fresh!

L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar XFiber Primer + Fiber Mascara »

Whereas false eyelashes and lash extensions can be difficult and time-consuming to remove (assuming you’re trying to be gentle and not damage your real lashes), Voluminous Superstar XFiber Primer + Fiber Mascara washes off completely with a water-soluble cleanser, no pulling, peeling, or rubbing needed.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Honey Eye Gel »

The fragrance-free gel absorbs quickly and works well worn by itself and under makeup, in either case making eye-area skin feel refreshed and lightly moisturized. There are some excellent ingredients here, among them non-fragrant plant oils including olive, jojoba, and coconut oils, plus skin-plumping sodium hyaluronate and a couple of skin-replenishing peptides.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition All-Over Honey Balm »

There are plenty of hydrating and moisturizing ingredients included, among them shea butter, apricot, sunflower, passionfruit, and rice bran oils, and the honey ingredients that play heavily into this product’s advertising (honey, beeswax, and royal jelly). All will help dry skin appear plumped and smooth, and have antioxidant benefit, too. You might say honey is the bee’s knees!

Now for the problematic part: the formula contains a high amount of drying denatured alcohol, which over time does damage to skin, particularly the delicate skin of the lips (see More Info for details). This also has a strong fragrance, and fragrance can cause skin irritation. We do wish L’Oreal would ease up on the fragrance in their makeup, as it’s not doing your skin any favors.

It wears well for the most part, with no fading at all, though it does crease slightly towards the end of its wear time, which can be buffed out. It provides SPF 25, but unfortunately that’s below the global standard of SPF 30 for optimal sun safety.

L’oreal Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Ultra-Nourishing Moisturizer »

Marjoram, orange peel, and the numerous fragrance ingredients in this moisturizer cause irritation that hurts skin's ability to heal and produce healthy collagen. Although marjoram is a natural source of the skin-lightening ingredient arbutin, it also contains volatile components that are known to cause inflammation. Check out More Info for further details on why irritation is so bad for your skin.
