L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Review

Hello beauties! I received this hair oil on my September Glossybox. It’s taken me a while to actually to around to using it became I’m so devoted to my Avon Advanced Techniques Morrocan Argan Oil. Once I get into a routine of using a product it’s hard for me to stop!

Review
There has been a lot of hype around this product. I remember reading some of the beauty blog community’s unboxing on September Glossybox and people were so excited to try it out. I already had a staple oil in my collection so I wasn’t so hyped about it to be honest. In case some of you don’t know, I have thick bleached blonde hair that passes my shoulders by a couple of inches, I tend to use straighteners only when I really need to which is mostly for the hair around my face and my fridge, so product like this are key to keeping my hair soft.
As you can see from the picture it’s your standard hair oil packaging with the pump action which is very popular. The consistency of the product is alot thinner then I’m used to. My Avon hair oil is much thicker which I’ve grown used to. The one upside to this is that i used less product in one application. I use around two pumps for my hair. I tend to split my hair in half and use one pump for each side. Although if you have thinner/shorter hair then me you will only need one.
Oils like this are only meant for the ends of your hair. This is because your ends suffer the most abuse, but also it’s because your hair gets it’s nutriment and all the good stuff from the blood. When you have longer hair, all those oils and nutriment don’t get to the end of your hair. That is the ends are usually less healthy than the top.
I use this sort of oil on towel dried hair. I’m not totally sure if that’s how this product is supposed to be used, but it’s how I’ve used all my hair oils, and it works for me. It makes my hair easier to brush too which is always great, no one likes pulling their hair out when brushing their hair! Having such thick hair, if a product makes my hair feel heavier I instantly hate it. This thankfully felt weightless in my hair. Once dried my hair feels smooth and manageable. I wash my hair twice a week because it doesn’t really go greasy with the bleach, and I don’t like to wash it too often because it makes my hair even drier, so I still need to use dry end serum between washing.

Conclusion
I’ve enjoyed using this hair oil. I am pretty loyal to my Avon argan oil, so I can’t say I’ll be swapping it for this any time soon. I think it’s because I prefer the thicker consistency of the Avon one. I know I use more of the Avon one because of this, but I think it leaves my hair in better condition then the L’Oréal one. But if Avon ever stop doing theirs, I’ll know where to look!

Review: L’Oréal Mega Volume Miss Manga Mascara

I received this in my July You Beauty Discovery Box. I chose to recieve this item after seeing adverts for it, I was curious to try it out. Before this I was using benefits They’re Real Mascara, so it’s going to be hard to follow that!

Review
The one thing I love about this mascara is that it’s flexible, so it’s easy to reach those corners, without going caghanded! You can see just below where the brush ends it dips in, which I didn’t think I would like, I was wrong! The cone shape of this brush makes it easier to get those little lashes on the corner of your eye which are usually a nightmare, and where the brush widens it sweeps the longer lashes up making them look fuller. I only needed one coat too to get a full look! Which is always good because the more coats you apply, the easier it is for your lashes to clump! Speaking of clumping, the brush does a beautiful job of separating my lashes. For a budget mascara, it really is good! The formula is quite black too, not the blackest I’ve ever used but it is a good consistency and colour.

Conclusion
If you guys get beauty boxes sent too, you know how many mascaras you get sent in them because, it’s an item most people use! Which is great but it does mean that I hardly ever actually buy a mascara for myself to use! I would recommend though to someone that does want a good mascara that will give them volume, if you don’t want to spend a lot on benefits They’re Real, this is a pretty good contender!

This is currently available at boots for £8.99

Review: L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Lip Colour

I received this in my June You Beauty Discovery Box. I picked this colour in 110 Timeless Rose. I love receiving Lipsticks in beauty boxes, especially ones with staying power.

L’Oréals 1st Lip-Duo with Hyaluronic gel. All day long lips feel smooth. All day hydration for endless replenishing comfort. All day just-applied look for colour that does not fade

Application
Apply base colour to bare lips for best colour results. Allow colour to dry. Apply conditioning balm for smooth feeling lips

Review
I love a good lipstick that has staying power, and this really does last all day. So much so, I couldn’t get it off! The colour is a lovely shimmery pink. I picked this colour because I wanted a shade I could wear day or night. The only down side to these sorts of Lipsticks is that you have to keep using the balm to hydrate your lips because they can get dry from the stain. If you don’t, the colour start to crack and your lips feel disgusting. This is probably due to me constantly rubbing my lips together too. I’m always doing it.

Conclusion
Would I buy this in other shades? I think I would. For £9.99 I think it’s a pretty good price. I’m really impressed with the staying power and looking at some of the other shades they look lovely. I have a wedding in October so I will definitely keep this in mind for when I’m picking out my make up! I just need to stop rubbing my lips together!
