Wearing L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in 812 Opulent Organza
Ironically, Lâ€™Oreal claims their new Infallible Le Rouge Lipsticks last up to 10 hours on the lips. I’ve only been getting about 6, but I think that’s still pretty great. After all, no one’s infallible. Not even L’Oreal.
Whenever I hear about a new long-wearing lipstick, I think, “Geez, I hope it’s not too thick.” It seems like a lot of them sacrifice comfort for longevity, but this time L’Oreal managed to achieve both. Not only does the lightweight, non-drying formula feel wonderful (almost like a good pair of pajama jeans!), but it doesn’t have that cloying floral fragrance the company frequently adds (they’re also unflavored).
As for how they look, I’d say it’s like a satiny matte. The colors are rich and pigmented, not flat or heavy, and they look rather polished on the lips.
Unfortunately, packaging isn’t one of their strong points. I find them awkward to use and hard to open. I actually knocked over a cup of tea trying to pry the cap from the tube yesterday, but at least the plastic feels sturdy…

On me, Infallible Le Rouge barely fades at all after meals. Definitely less than most lippies do, but after about 6 hours, the colors begin to exhibit signs of distress, settling into lip lines and looking cakey and uneven.
To say Le Rouge lasts 10 hours is a bit of a stretch, but even so, I think it’s a great drugstore product. Yeah, $10 is a lot for a drugstore lippie, but it’s also available in a slew of colors (30!).
PRICE: $10 (available in 30 colors)
AVAILABILITY: At drugstores, grocery stores, Ulta and online

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. So how was the rest of your afternoon? You doing anything fun? My tummy’s feeling a little better now, but it’s still not completely right, which means I should probably stick to crackers for dinner.
I can’t wait to show you a picture of my new hair! I got my roots done and added caramel highlights. I promise to post a pic soon, but at the moment I’m about to pass out…
