Being back stateside has it's ups and it's downs. The best thing about living overseas is you can actually save money since 9 times out of 10 they don't have crap that you want. Also, they don't have our favorite place to be...Walmart!

As I strolled through the aisle, weaving in and around the million Walmartians, (the frequent Walmart shoppers who seem to own the isle and feel the need to always be in your way) I found these babies. Now, I have more than enough stuff especially foundation but how could I pass this up!

The biggest plus......the shade I snagged is the same shade as the True Match (my favorite foundation) shade they discontinued. The shade is fresh beige and it an exact match to the True Match. so if you wear Loreal then the shades seem to be the same across the brand.

It's a matte formula that for me isn't too matte. I typically don't love matte foundations but this one is great. It's a nice option to the True Match in my opinion. It seemed to last on me for over 16 hours, and I work a 12 hour day. I personally love this stuff! I really am steering clear of higher end foundations because they are always such a hit or miss for me.

 I always go back to my roots...Loreal. That's a brand that is like home for me.

The powder is good too....I do not wear the foundation and the powder together although you could. I wear it on my no makeup makeup days and it works fine. I still love my MUFE pro finish powder but this is a close second.

The Lash Sensational mascara is a winner as well! I love maybelline mascaras overall so I am bias but this one is great. I had been using the infamous 3D Mascara and this by no means is a dupe but sometimes you just don't have all that extra time for the 3D lashes....so this is my current DS fave.

Now.......the Maybelline concealer....Master conceal.....is not a winner for me. It's just O-K-A-Y. I personally like the fit me one better. I think for me this one is a bit drying if you use it under your eyes.

This is a very interesting product. I purchased it because I have fine low porosity hair and was hoping it’d make my hair stronger. I used it according to the instructions on the bottle (put it on for about 10 minutes under a plastic cap before applying my deep conditioner). Then I did my usual deep condition with my thermal hair care hot head cap. The first thing I noticed right after applying is my hair was kind of hard and stiff. Applying my deep conditioner on top wasn’t the same either; there wasn’t really the super creamy slip I always get with it. Anyway, after deep conditioning with this product underneath my deep conditioner and then rinsing my hair felt still strangely stiff and almost dehydrated. But I felt like I had thicker hair that week. I’m really interested in experimenting with it more bc more and thicker hair is what I want.

Hi Melissa, Thank you so much for the review. May I ask what deep conditioner did you use with it? The rinse builds in the hair to strengthen it over time. I do recommend using a moisturizing deep conditioner over it, if you had those results. If the one you used has protein that could be why you had those results. The rinse works great with our deep conditioners in our product line. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions.
Oily and greasy

Granted I think I used too much on my fine, low porosity curls, but this was just enormously oily in my hair. I’m going to give it another try using much less.

Hi Melissa! Thank you for taking the time to review the product. A little goes a long way for low porosity, fine hair whereas thicker textures can use a heavier hand. Try using about a dime size (or a little less)on each section if you section you hair when applying products. Please update us on how that works for you.

Bought this bundle of products a few months ago, figured now is a good time to review since I've used each a few times.

I have type 4 hair (I'd categorize it as mostly 4b and 4c) and high porosity. I've been natural for 3 years, and I've noticed over time that my hair just has a really hard time retaining moisture. These products did an awesome job moisturizing my hair. Woke up with perfect juicy curls from my twist out.

Shout out to the knot tonic That stuff alone works wonders, super soft and makes detangling a breeze. But really I think the combination is what makes everything work.

Love this product!!

The Knot Tonic is one of my favorite products. I love the way it gets the " knots out of my hair. It's AMAZING!!!

Loved it.

I went on vacation and used the growth shampoo, real nice, not heavy and not to light. Made my hair soft and very clean, love the smell also. Can’t wait to use again.
