Before I start, a word of advise to all the college pass outs who are going through the rigorous placement and interview process. Yesterday I had my interview in a B-School and I was
L’Oreal Claims: Infallible Le Rouge stays fresh and vibrant looking for up to 10 hours without feeling sticky, tacky or dry. Enriched with Vitamin E for moisture and Ceramide 5 for conditioning, Infallible Le Rouge applies evenly without flaking or fading out.
The new Infallible Le Rouge formula is based on L’Oréal’s Colour Bond Technology that features a flexible network that captures and fixes colour on lips. This is made possible by an association of adhesive polymers that allows for the longevity of the lipcolour, as well as sillicon micro spheres that ensure only the richest lipcolour will be left on a woman’s lips.
The Colour: Always Apricot is a warm orange with lustre finish. It has very fine golden shimmer particles that impart a gold lustre shine to it. It can also be described as a yellow metallic orange. Since it is sheer, you can very easily pull it off during the day. A few more swipes of it and it turns into a wonderful night time orange with golden shimmer. So it is one of those colours you can keep in your bag which can be used day and night depending on how you wear it. Since it has warm tones, it is most likely to suit medium to dark skin tones. If you are always running away from orange lipsticks then you must try this, since this is sheer you get full control over the intensity of the color and ow you build it up.
Quality, Texture and Longevity: The texture and feel is semi matte and lustre. Despite being a long lasting formula, it is non drying. You can wear a very thin layer of lip balm underneath (well this is what I do with long lasting lip colors so they don’t get dry over time) to keep away any signs of dryness which you generally get after 4-5 hours. I wore it in the day and the color was still intact when I got home…so I can safely say it stays on for around 7-8 hours on me. Also, it glides on easily without flaking up and never settles into the fine lines of lips. This is one of the best long staying lip color I’ve tried in a long time. Also, the bullet has this thin diameter which makes it very easy to apply the lipstick straight from the tube, even beginners can get it right the first time without messing up!
A few words on the packaging: The lipstick is sturdy and closes with a ‘clicckkkk’ which relieves you of it messing up in your bag but it is bulky. Also, if you have a few more of these then it gets difficult to distinguish them in your vanity without looking at the labels. At this price, I would expect a little more good-to-look-at packaging.
This s how it looks on me:
So is it for you? Yes it is a pretty orange (which by the way is the colour of the season) with metallic finish to it. The shimmer is not easily visible to the bare eye, it just imparts a lovely shine. If you are afraid of orange lipsticks then give this one a chance since it is sheer and you have full control over the intensity of the colour. The formula is top notch and stays on for 7-8 hours with meals in between and doesn’t flakes and dries your lips. It is one of those good quality long lasting lip colors available in the market.
