    L’oreal Infallible Freshwear 120 True Beige – FLASH REVIEW

    Too tired and lazy to write an intro. Let’s go straight to the point on my review on this product. I wish I’d gotten a shade darker. I’m acidic but L’Oreal Infallible Freshwear stays true to its color!   Photos & Swatches     Review Packaging:It comes in a glass pump bottle with a red cap. Can be heavy to lug around in your kikay kit. But who brings their entire makeup arsenal anyway? (Okay.. me lol) Texture:I usually pump my foundation on the back of my hand.

To set makeup, to make your foundation look “natural”, mimic an hour of sweat. Do make-up settings really work? Are they really more than just water? Today on the blog I’ll share with you my favorite makeup setting sprays that actually do the job and more. But first!   What is a Makeup Setting Spray? Makeup ‘setting‘ spray is formulated to be budge-proof and keep your makeup right where you left it, while ‘finishing’ sprays are typically used to moisten the skin.
