Product Review: L'oreal De-Crease

L'oreal De-Crease

($6.92 @ Walmart, around $7 @ other drugstores)

Packaging: 4/5
(small transparent glass tube, bendable applicator)

Result: 5/5

Overall: 4.75/5

  • The wand. Why? Because it's bendable unlike udpp's, so I am able to scrap around the product inside the tube. Now that I found this out, I think that's probably why udpp product gathers on the wall of the container, I think the wand pushes the cream because the wand moves only side to side. HA !!
  • The price; not bad AT ALL for the result : )
  • The creamy-ness, but surprisingly dries up quicker than udpp, so I don't need to wait for too long. I hate waiting LOL
  • The color, it leaves an opaque base color on my lid which results the eyeshadow to appear more vibrant.
  • It doesn't crease! *doh* hehe
  • It's very blend-able and somehow I blend my pigments more easily with this.
  • The amount of product, oh well.. you got what you pay for right? besides I think it's wise for not having too much since *knock on wood* it might dry up after a while.
  • The 8 hours limit of creasing & fading prevention. Now I haven't really used them for more than 8 hours so I have no idea how bad it would be.
Inan sez:
I am PLEASED with this, I mean, I loved my udpp but this one is cheaper and one or two things about it is better than udpp. Honestly, maybe I would not have purchased this if my udpp didn't dry up on me and would continue using it until it finish, but since it DID *I'm still upset hahahaha*, I guess I'm sticking with this cheaper drugstore ones.

Once again, L'oreal came out with decent product ^_^

Would I re-purchase?
Hell yes.

thankums for the review. i don't think this will work well for my oily lids though. LOL. because katrina did a comparative review of the two and this one creased 4-5 hours later where as udpp creased 8 hours later. with udpp my shadow still creases, i have to use TWO bases. bah. LOL. :P i want to try TFSI after i finish up my UDPP... and i have ALOT of UDPP left. LOL.

Nanzy said...

yeah I saw her review just now : ) I am surprised coz I have super oily lids too but I haven't tried wearing in for too long, so I might do updates if it creases.

TFSI looks promising too..but I'm set with this for now hehehe
