L'Oreal First Impressions

Hello Lovelies,
If you saw my recent post on a Boots Haul that I did, you will have noticed that I picked up some make up items, no surprise there.
To mix things up a bit I thought I would do a 'first impressions' on the L'Oreal products I purchased which were; Infallible Foundation, Julianne nude lipstick, miss manga mascara.

Infallible Foundation - Shade 200 Golden Sand
Packaging is nice, I like the 'squared' bottle foundations, it has a pump which does feel slightly cheap when you are pumping out the foundation but hey it does the job.

Fairly thick consistency and gives a good medium coverage which is buildable without going cakey, the shade I bought myself is probably a shade too dark which is such a shame. It lasted me well all throughout the day, slight fading on the chin but that usually happens to me as I can't stop touching my face!

Overall I would give this a 7/10 (I still love my True Match!)

Miss Manga Mascara
Great packaging, I love the purple metallic lid to it and I love how the lid clicks when it's closed all the way (yeah, things like that please me) The brush is really good too, it's thick at the base and gradually gets slimmer to the end which is great for your inner corner lashes.
Application was ok, I had to work with it quite a bit to separate my lashes but then I usually do with new mascara's. I feel they are too wet if that even makes sense? I like it when the mascara has slightly dried out a little as it doesn't make my lashes clog together. I think once I have used this a few times I will love it

I would give this a 7.5 out of 10
Julianne Nude Lipstick
Love this packaging! It feels extremely luxurious and expensive, I love the gold detail around it and just everything about it!

This glides on really well and is so easy to apply, it is quite a creamy consistency so wont last you too long throughout the day, I have to wear this with a lip liner to get maximum wear out of it. The shade is just a perfect pinky nude shade and it is now one of my all time faves!

I will give this a 9/10

Let me know if you have tried, or will now try any of these products in the comments below.
