L'oreal Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation {Review + Demo}


I started using the L’oreal Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation when I received it in a media package from L’oreal. I had not been looking for a new foundation, but I am always keen to try new products so I did just that. To my surprise I fell in love with this product & it is now my holy grail foundation. I have already re-purchased it once, & will have to do so for a 3rd time very soon. I use the 250 Radiant Sand which suits my complexion perfectly.

Watch the video below to see my demo, & don't forget to read all the details in my review below :)



Application: 
I apply this foundation using a beauty sponge which has been dampened with some water. I also like to mix in my Forever21 Beauty Luminiser, however for the purpose of the demo, I chose to just use the foundation. I find the application to be easy, & the product does dry fairly fast which I love. It really does go on smoothly.

Coverage: 
Coverage is medium to full. To achieve full coverage, you will have to build the foundation. Having a good primer or base will make this easier. I have to also tell you that for me, at full coverage it did feel a little heavy on my skin. However, I am not used to wearing full coverage foundation so that may be why. The product does claim “no visible imperfections” which for me is quite accurate - but my skin (other than my dark circles & a few freckles) is fairly clear & smooth, just very uneven. If you have many imperfections on your face, then I am not sure how you will find this aspect of the foundation. I honestly do still use concealer on my dark circles, but other than that it does a great job. I love that the foundation gives me a dewy look, but for those of you with oily skin, you may want to use a powder in conjunction with it.

Colour Range:
As far as I am aware, this foundation doesn’t have a wide range of colours, so you may have to mix 2 colours to get the correct shade. From the shades I have seen, they are yellow-based for the most part. But yellow-based foundations can be used by many complexions. 

Price:
This foundation retails for approximately R209.95 (depends on where you’re purchasing from, so don’t quote me.). I think this is a great price for a foundation. The last foundation I purchased was on a trip to USA, & cost me $40. 

Overall:
I really do love this foundation & would absolutely recommend it :)

"I Woke Up Like This" {Giveaway + OOTD}

"I woke up like this" Tee (The Hub) | Shorts & Bag (H&M) | Sunglasses (Levi's Eyewear) | Jacket (Cotton On) | Heels (Steve Madden)

I'm back with a new outfit, which means I have sorted my VPN issue here in China. If you're a keen follower, you will notice that this look was shot a few weeks ago by my LEGO Henry Holland nails. Unfortunately I am only getting to post this now because I have been crazy busy with work. It was New York & now China, & soon home - YAY!

Anyway, because it's taken so long to get it out, I thought I would make up for it with a giveaway for you guys. I have x4 "I woke up like this" Tees & x1 R500 voucher from The Hub to give away. Sound good? I think so.

I love this Tee - I wear it more than I should. And while I know that many people find the term "I woke up like this" to be vain.  For me it's got more to do with empowerment than it has to do with ones physical appearance. It's like saying "This is who I am am! Im here." We have so many more opportunities than those before us, & this statement represents that. You can be whoever, & whatever you want to be.

Enough rabbling - if you would like to enter the giveaway, please see below. I will choose 4 winners to win the Tees, & 1 winner to win the R500 voucher. There are 3 ways to enter, all listed below, & you can enter on all social media.

Floral Fun {OOTD}

Dress / Clutch / Heels (Truworths) | Sunglasses (Chloe Eyewear) / Earrings (Zuri - old) 


It feels like its been years since I last posted. Yes I said years. My last outfit was posted in August - 2 weeks ago. And while I have worn many great outfits since then - I unfortunately don't get the opportunity to photograph these great outfits. Life has been hectic of late. And one would think that I would learn. I know when my busy work months are, but I still don't prepare well enough in terms of blog content. Although in my defence, right now I have x2 review videos waiting to be edited; x1 Get Ready With Me / Make-up tutorial also waiting to be edited; & x1 outfit post/giveaway that needs to be posted. Ok so when I look at it like that I actually do have some content for the next 2 weeks when I am in China - yes I am off again. Will I have time to edit all this? Yes that's the million dollar question.  

I hope you guys can understand that for me, while I love my blog - I have to prioritise my time, & often that means putting my work first. The RAG trade isn't always easy but I love it in ways I could never explain. 

Just a side note, I will try to get a post or 2 up while I am in China, but last time I have VPN issues which stopped me from posting. But let's be positive :)
