Product Review: L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick

One Monday morning, I woke up to an email that I won some L’Oreal lipsticks from my bright red lips photo entry to Fabulous! I can try all ten shades from L’Oreal’s latest collection Infallible Le Rouge (About $8.99 each). Three weeks after, the Fedex package came- lo and behold! I received not ten but all of 30 shades. Sweet Jesus, my lips are elated to swatch a few.

L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge is semi-matte with a longer hour staying power- I would say a good solid five hours for me (compared to its advertising claim 16 hours or more). The texture is a little tacky at first but settles in lightly after. It is non-drying with impeccable color pay-off. It has no annoying waxy scent. Available in 30 shades, it suits every skin color and mood. The only issue is the packaging- the uncapping and recapping requires a bit of effort as it doesn’t come off easy. 

The browns (Coded in 8-series)

The pinks (coded in 1-series)

The reds (only 2 shades)

The lilacs (coded in 5-series)

The corals (coded in 4-series)

Here are swatches of some pinks I am loving at the moment:

L-R: 138 (Forever Fuschia), 121 (Perennial Pink)

L-R: 138 (Forever Fuschia), 121 (Perennial Pink)

Forever Fuschia

Perennial Pink

On to my Kissmark Analysis:

SHARE THE WINNINGS. I purposely didn’t swatch all because I want my blog readers, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube subscribers to have a chance to own these lipsticks. Stay tuned for announcement.

And in case you are wondering what was this bright red lips I was referring to, here it is…
