Review: L’Oreal Infallible Foundations Comparisons: Pro-Matte vs. Pro-Glow // jessiepink1028

Hey y’all! I was going to write this post a while ago when the Pro-Glow first launched a few months ago, but I never got around to it until now. I’m really sorry! But here are my thoughts and opinion about both the L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte and theL’oreal Infallible Pro-Glow foundations.

I have created a table that basically summarizes each foundation. I divided the foundation comparison into 7 categories: price, packaging, shade selection, application, coverage, finish, wear time/test. If you want to read more details or my additional thoughts and tips on each foundation, you can scroll past the table and continue reading. I hope this post will provide some insight to those who have yet to try any of these foundations and are wondering which one they should try and to those wondering if they should add any of these to their collection of foundations.


Comparison Chart

Pro Matte Pro Glow
Price Both foundations cost $12.99 for 1 oz
Packaging Both foundations come in a squeeze tube
Shade Selection Both foundations have 12 shades

The shade names may match between the foundations but the actual shade color does not match

Pro Matte shades are 101-112, Pro Glow shades are 201-212

Application Both foundations apply more evenly with a makeup sponge
Coverage Medium-Full Light-Medium
Finish Matte Glowy or Natural, if set with powder
Wear Time/Test Claims to last 24 hours, but only lasted ~10 hours on my skin Claims to last 24 hours, but only lasted ~5 hours on my skin

Shade Selection

I didn’t buy all 12 shades of both foundations to swatch, but I mentioned in the comparison chart that the shade names and numbers may correlate between all three but despite that, the shades may not actually match between the foundations.

Additional Thoughts…

Of both the foundations, Pro Matte looks and feels the best on my skin. I have very oily skin and the Pro Matte sits well on my skin keeping me matte longer than other foundations in my collection, but I wish that the shade selection was better. Yes, there are 12 shades in the range; which is decent for a drugstore foundation, but it’s nowhere as much as some of the other drugstore foundations like the Maybelline Fit Me or the Nyx Total Control. I find that most of the shades in the Pro Matte line have yellow/warm undertones. Also, the progression from the first shade (101) to the last (112) isn’t gradual enough – as in the first two shades are for fair and fair/light skin and then the third shade, 103, is for medium skin. Where did light and light/medium go? I need a shade for medium skin tones, but the foundation is a little too yellow for me, this sucks because I have tried shades 106-108 and can’t find a shade that’s close enough to match me. The best shade match for me was 108 when I’m self-tanned. But, when it dries, it would oxidize and be orange. I could use the medium skin tone shades, but I wish it would have a little more pink undertones…*sigh*

Have you tried any of these foundations? If you have, which one is your favorite?

I would love to know if any of you have tried any of these foundations and if you’re experiencing the same issue that I am with shade selection. If you have any tips for longer wear time, please let me know! I usually don’t wear makeup longer than 12 hrs in a day but it would still be nice if I could get these foundations to last closer to the amount of time it claims to last. I hope this review/comparison was helpful and I’ll talk to y’all later~

Review: Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Foundation // jessiepink1028

Hey y’all!!! As this is being my first blog review on a product, I’m super excited to be reviewing Rihanna’s new foundation from her line, Fenty Beauty. RiRi has been working on this line for 2 years and it has finally launched! After watching and reading about this foundation, I wanted to see if the foundation was worth the hype myself. I walked into Sephora and saw that there were 40 SHADES in the foundation and most of the shades were sold out! This impressed me, so I knew I had to try it. Here are my thoughts on the foundation, “Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation.”


This foundation retails for $34 at Sephora. I also got free shipping through Sephora because they were out of my shade completely.



After shaking the bottle to mix it up, apply it with a brush, and then blend the rest in with a dampened makeup sponge or your fingers. I like applying with a dampened beauty sponge because it blends the foundation seamlessly. It doesn’t have the best coverage though, if you have a lot of acne scars or hyperpigmentation, I would recommend using a dense kabuki brush and then blend the rest in with a beauty blender. This foundation also builds nicely to full coverage with a second layer.


It takes a minute for it to dry and set all the way. Just like the name states, the finish is soft and matte like a super subtle satin. It’s not a pearl, and it doesn’t shimmer, but it does have more oomph than a regular matte. I think it makes the skin look like it was just washed, dried and kissed by a magical makeup angel, #blessed.


Would I recommend it?


Basically, Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation is the shit! I can’t recommend it enough.

My Morning Routine

6:45 am Turn off alarm

Every morning my alarm goes off at 6:45 am. Like most people I use my phone as an alarm clock. So the first thing I do is turn it off and then cuddle with my boyfriend (yes, I do live with my boyfriend– blog post coming soon about that!). At this point we are on our phones and talk about what we’re going to do for that day.

7:30 am Get up and walk Spirit

By 7:30 my boyfriend and I get up and go outside to get my dog, Spirit and take him out to the dog park near our home. We stay there for about an hour. Spirit enjoys going out and playing with other dogs to get all his puppy energy out. He loves rough housing with other big dogs and is very friendly with people as well as other dogs. At first my boyfriend and I didn’t know how well he was going to react to other dogs because it was his first time at a dog park, but he does really well and has fun! That’s the important thing!

8:30 am Go home and take a shower

By the time Spirit, Kevin, and I all get home from the dog park, my mom is up and making Kevin (my boyfriend) and I breakfast. As she’s making breakfast we go upstairs and take a nice shower after we play with Spirit.

9:00 am Get ready for the day

Around 9:00 I get out of the shower and towel myself off. After I towel myself off, I wrap my hair in the towel and I figure out what to wear for that day. Once I figure out what to wear I put the clothes on and start doing my hair and makeup. My shirt is from Forever 21, my dark purple bralette is from Kohl’s, my pants are also from Forever 21, My necklace and hoop earrings are from Icing. My shoes are from Target from the kids section because I have really small feet hahaha. I use the Garnier Fructis Style Smooth Air Dry Anti-Frizz Cream and then blow dry my hair straight. After I blow dry it, it’s still a little frizzy that I run a straightening iron through my hair to help with the frizziness. With my makeup I like to keep it simple. I do my eyebrows first with my Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Ebony. Then I use my Maybelline FaceStuidio Master Conceal in Light/Medium to clean up my eyebrows. Then I do my winged eyeliner using my Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner. I then put on a few coats of Benefit Roller Lash mascara and L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara both in black. I use my Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation which gives me a nice demi-matte finish and to top it all off highlighter and lipstick! I use the Becca x Jaclyn Hill highlighting palette in the color Champagne Pop on the cheeks and nose and cupids bow and inner corner of my eye. In this picture I decided to wear my EBIN 24 hour Liquid Lipstick in the color Hollipop. Spray a matte setting spray and voila!

Processed with MOLDIV

Between 9-11 (Mondays and Wednesdays) I finish up any last minute homework, print stuff out etc. 

(Mondays/ Wednesdays) 11;10-12:30 Go to school

I go to a community college and I have my English class on Mondays and Wednesdays. Right now we’re on a grammar review and we have a test next week. Got to prepare for that soon!

2:00 pm Work

My boyfriend and I go to work at 2:00. Luckily, we work together so it’s not so bad. On Fridays and Saturdays we open and close the store.

GRWM: Date Night

Processed with MOLDIV

Hi Loves,

Today I thought I’d share my Glam / Date night kind of look. I went on a date last night with my boyfriend, so I thought I’d share with you the typical kind of thing I’d wear for this kind of occasion.

Base– Benefit POREfessional and Benefit POREfessional Matte Rescue
Foundation- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Concealer– Maybelline Master Conceal by Face Studio

Powder– NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat

Bronzer– Rimmel Natural Braonzer

Highlighter– Becca x Jaclyn Hill Prosecco Pop

Brows– Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony

Eyeliner– Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner

Mascara– Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

Lips– EBIN Matte Liquid Lipstick



I did an egg and coconut oil hair mask and then shampooed and conditioned my hair with Pantene shampoo and conditioner. I then used some leave in conditioner by it’s a 10 and blow dried and straightened my hair. I then used Gorilla Snot Gel and sleeked my hair back into a simple high ponytail. Topped it off with my denim looking fry hat.



Because our date was just going to walk around downtown I decided to go with something casual. I’m wearing my Hollywood tank top from Forever 21 and some flower printed black jeggings from Walmart. Over the tank top because I didn’t know if the restaurant we were going to was going to be cold or not, I decided to wear an army green color jacket from American Eagle. I then paired it my black and white converses. For jewelry accessories I’m wearing some gold hoops that says “Babe” on it and a gold circle chocker


And that is my completed look for an ideal date night/ going out glam look. I’d love to know your thoughts and what you think. Also if you have any tips for me!

Storytime: Why I dropped out of high school and going to community college

Weather you know me in person or you know me through the internet. You know me, but you don’t know my story. Yes, I’m an Asian American with strict, Asian, tiger parents. So, you can imagine, my conversations with my parents wanting to drop out of high school was difficult. Now, I don’t want to sound like a hypocrite, but if you are currently in high school, try not to drop out. I did try. I didn’t want to drop out, but my circumstances made me drop out. I don’t want to say the word “made me” because obviously it was a choice, but I did everything I could to stay. But dropping out didn’t mean I didn’t care about my education. I already made plans to take my GED the moment I drop out. I got my GED in March of 2017 and now I’m currently attending a community college in my town. It was the best decision I have ever made. My path may be different than everyone’s but my goal is the same and that is to go to community college, transfer to a 4 year university and get my degree.

Dropping out of high school was a difficult decision for me. No, it wasn’t because I hated school because who doesn’t hate school? I’ve been bullied since my 6th grade year. Yes, I know everyone get’s bullied, I should suck it up blah blah blah. And I did, I even transferred every year of my high school career. My junior year, I did not realize I had depression until my senior/junior year. I failed English my junior year so I got held back, that’s why I said my “senior/junior” year. In the middle of my senior year, or so I thought,  during Homecoming week the administrators called me into the office and told me I was getting held back. I cried and asked if I could skip Homecoming week and stay at home. They all agreed and told me that was fine. I also got diagnosed with depression while all of this was going on. In December of 2016 I got admitted into a mental/behavior institution. I missed so much school that it was hard for me to catch up. I realized maybe God is telling me this wasn’t the right time to be going to high school. So I talked to my mom about it and she agreed that because I missed too much school and that I might have to get held back again that I should drop out, but I had to promise her that I will get my GED right away or at least try. So I did. Now 9 months later, I got my GED and I’m going to community college. I thought of every possibility and every outcome for every decision I was about to make. Make sure if you are thinking about dropping out to see if it’s in your best interest and you are not dropping out because you hate school. I care about my education and I believe everyone should strive to be the best person they can be and get their education.

P.S. Make sure your mental health comes first. That’s what ultimately helped me decide on whether I should drop out or not.

I don’t understand why you lied.

Why did you lie?

All the pills you’ve taken, the cigarettes you were smoking, the alcohol you were drinking

Were you ever sober when you were with me?

I would taste alcohol on your breath, but I didn’t care.

All the things you’ve said, were they true?

“You’re the cutest, sweetest thing.” That’s what you said.

You said you had a crush on me. You kissed me in a way I’ve never been kissed before

The way you touched me, the way you reassured me about that night.

You kissed me so passionately and kissed my forehead. You saved me that night or so I thought.

I can’t thank you enough for that. But was that all an act? Did you ever really care about me?

I pray to God you don’t become like your father. I pray that you will get help one day. I pray that the right girl will come along and help you. I wish very much that I could be that girl, but I can’t. I’m sorry. It hurts me seeing you like this.

I’m sorry if I hurt you by not being able to stay, but God was telling me I shouldn’t because I will be even more hurt than I am now.

I pray that one day, you will be real with yourself and admit your problems.

I caught feels for you. I never thought I would EVER catch feelings for anyone. But I did.

I would never admit it to anyone, but I caught feelings for you.

If you didn’t lie to me, maybe this would be different. You keep denying and denying that you don’t do any of those things.

But why am I hearing other things. Why do I hear,

“He is an addict.”

“He pops pills all the time.”

“He will hurt you and manipulate you and lie to you”

You said “I guess this is what nice guys get, right?”

No. You did it to yourself. You lost me because you lied to me.

Maybe. JUST maybe. It would’ve been different if you could tell me the truth.

I asked MULTIPLE times if you still take pills, if you still smoke cigarettes. You continuously said no.

And I believed you. Those brown eyes just staring at me. Making me feel lost and entranced.

You made me look like a dumbass bitch. I believed everything you said.

How could you lie so easily? How could you look at me the way you did and tell me straight in the eyes you don’t do anything? How was it so easy for you? Did you ever mean what you said?

After I broke up with you, how did you move on so easily. Like as if nothing happened and I don’t exist.

“*Austin is throwing a party and hella bitches are coming!”

Did that make you feel more like a man?

Did that make you feel better? Was I ever in your mind during the party?

Were you seeing other girls behind my back? You asked me if I was seeing other guys and I said no. You said cool I’m not seeing anyone either. If you were seeing other girls, why is that okay, but not okay if I see other guys.

The memories of our adventures and your touch still lingers. I want it to go away, but it won’t.

What about you? Do I even exist in your mind anymore? or am I just one of the girls you fucked?

I’m sorry if me leaving you hurt you. But it was for the best. For both of us.

I understand I’ll never understand why or if you ever were sober when we were together. It’s been eating me alive, but I’m finally going to let go of this pain I feel.

My head is all over the place. I can’t think straight. I don’t want to eat. I just want to sleep. You hurt me.

CJ showed me that anger is a secondary emotion. I was VERY angry the night I found out about the party and the lies you told.

Anger derives from being hurt, threatened, and fear.

I feel hurt and threatened because I was vulnerable with you. I told you EVERYTHING about me. I opened up to you and now I feel stupid. I don’t know what your intentions were when you got with me, but I pray that it was good. I know you are a good guy, *Austin, but you lied and hurt me. And I believe it was because you are afraid to be like your father. But *Austin, you are NOTHING like your father. But if you continue the path you are on, you will be. You are your own person. You are not your father. I hope you get help, babe. You are worth so much more than all the pills you’re taking. I care so much about you. You talked to me EVERYDAY! We talked until 3 am and opened up to each other. I thought you were different, but I guess I was wrong.

*this is not his real name! I changed it for security reasons!


To my “not ex boyfriend”? Thank you.

Thank you for showing me that underneath all the thorns and shields I built over my heart, that I have the ability to love.

Thank you for showing me that I have feelings and my heart is soft and full of love.

Thank you for the time we had together and the memories we made.

Thank you for putting a smile on my face.

Although this “not relationship” didn’t last long at all, I’m glad it happened. I’m thankful I found out who you really were in the early stages. This “not relationship” crashed and burned very quickly and I’m sorry. I did cause it, however, you did put it on yourself. The truth caught on. A little earlier than you thought, but it caught on.

Thank you, _____________________ (I had his full name here, for confidential reasons I erased it). Thank you for everything– the good, the bad and the ugly.
