As mentioned previously I had a lot of unopened boxes from PR that are a little late from when I took my break but hey, better late then never right? and buying, moving into, your new house takes some time! But with that said I’ve never seen such a stunning or more expensive collaboration between a company and famous person but we will get into that later, this morning was the first time I woke up and kissed my fiancé before going into my office / studio to write and it was so cold I had to turn the heat on! long story short its amazing! oh and typically anything marked TARTE I will always open first! BUT – lets get started.

Since the original launch or VICTORIA BECKHAM x ESTEE LAUDER went so amazingly well they came out with the most popular places in the world and went off Victoria’s experiences there!

I was sent five (5) single pieces which are, matte lipstick 03 black cassis, eye foil 01 burnt anise, eye kajal 01 black saffron / vanilla, eye matte 02 blue electrique / nude and of course since I am a man, and don’t wear much makeup (all makeup is set tested and approved) skin perfecting powder!

I was also set a really nice box set from a company not Estee Launder so who ever sent me that, thank you! there was no call back or email to connect, I’m assuming it came from L’Oréal though! Every product is packaged beautifully and is extremely heavy and feels very, very luxury like Victoria Beckham.

DID YOU KNOW ⭐ the compact designed for the skin perfecting powder was designed after a vintage cigarette case Victoria found in the Burlington Arcade in Mayfair, London.

This powder creates an airbrushed finish, minimizes the look of imperfection, and sets makeup. It is luxuriously soft, lightweight, and comfortable. The soft yellow undertone visibly brightens all skin tones – and its so wonderful applied to the skin, it doesn’t come with a puff so you’d have to use a travel brush with it but its completely worth it as the beautiful design will catch the eyes of both men and woman alike. The powder is a pale yellow-toned beige and is meant to be a universally flattering and mattifying powder. The powder is indeed invisible on the skin and can work for all skin tones. The powder does mattify but it does not make the skin look flat or powdery. It provides a very natural, skin-like finish. It is a very fine powder that sits weightlessly on the skin and sets it, without sinking into lines or emphasizing texture. While it doesn’t emphasize lines or texture, it doesn’t blur them either. It keeps your makeup on a reasonable amount of time, like many powders, and does a pretty good job of mattifying. I love that the finish is very natural and I don’t really see or feel the powder.

Hey guys.

I’m actually so excited to write this and I’ve been waiting for some time because I’ve been working closely with a couple different departments of L’Oréal and I will say of all of the companies I have had the pleasure of working work L’Oréal takes the cake with dedication – fearless and love for it’s creators.
IF you’ve had the pleasure of working with L’Oréal or L’Oréal luxe
you will understand when I say how amazing of a company they are.

Whether you need your everyday routine or you’re getting ready for a fabulous red-carpet night out, explore our make up range to find your match

Alright, I know, I know what you’re all here for – first I want to talk about makeup from L’Oréal and how much it’s stepped up it’s game – complexion (1) Infallible Colour Correcting Kit vs. MAKE UP FOREVER five (5) Camouflage Cream Palette I truly thought from using MAKE UP FOREVER cream palette that it would be such a winner but it didn’t even come close to L’Oréal and I’m not sure if its because L’Oréal made theirs after so the formula is better and pigmentation is more secure – honestly to compare the price of one (1) too another its really a no brainer, if you want color correction and coverage you would find L’Oréal in my kit over MAKE UP FOREVER in this case.

NEXT ➡️ L’Oréal Infallible PRO-MATTE 24h Foundation I love just as so many other influencers do, the Infallible line from L’Oréal offers so many foundations for so many skin needs, skin types, coverage levels and so much more. L’Oréal is full to medium coverage, but it feels extremely light, In other words, it doesn’t feel cakey on the skin, it is a 24-hour foundation but I will say it doesn’t last 24-hours, but it comes very close.
I apply this foundation with my Beauty Blender because I feel it leaves it smoother and more even on my face, rather than with the typical foundation brush. Another thing I liked a lot was that, with drugstore foundations it’s common that they don’t come in many shades but L’Oréal  has one for almost every skin color – also L’Oréal is one of the only drugstore brands to carry foundations and products for every skin tone.

I put this foundation against Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder as it has amazing matte properties to the product along with many, many other benefits and this is where it became fun too me! I created mini heat wave on two different models and L’Oréal outlasted CT but not by that much : then I created a little caught in the rain moment and L’Oréal beat CT by a long, long, looooooong shot.

What I found, CT claims to be only 18-hour wear that is very untrue, you will be lucky to get even 5-hours. L’Oréal claims to be 24-hour, which I don’t want to say isn’t true because you will get almost 20-hours from this product.

None of the caused breakout when worn overnight but we all know you shouldn’t ever sleep with your makeup on.

PRO TIP ➡️ USING A TESTER APPLY STRIP LINE OF THE FOUNDATION DOWN THE BACK OF YOUR HAND WAIT 60 SECONDS TO SEE IF THE AIR (OXIDIZATION) WILL HAVE AN EFFECT OF THE COLOR PAYOFF AND SHADE AND PICK ONE SHADE LIGHTER.

SIDE NOTE ➡️ PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS IN NO WAY A BASH AT ANY OF THE OTHER BRANDS THAT I PUT AGAIST THE BRAND!
