L’Oreal Paris Infallible Le Gloss in Red Fatale

10 Dec

I know I’ve already reviewed L’Oreal’s Infallible Le Gloss, but this stuff is so good that I had to snatch up more colors. Which lead me to discovering my new favorite long wearing red lip color. Just in time for the Holidays.

Red Fatale is a true red, neutral and opaque, that works with every skintone. In fact, it’s a Gwen Stefani red and she knows her reds. Now, I must confess. I tend to get lazy about wearing bright colors because I hate having to touch them up all day. But this gloss is not only super long-wearing, resisting fading and feathering, it’s also hydrating. But my favorite quality is that L’Oreal has nailed the perfect tone, the perfect hue. It actually makes your skin look brighter, more rested, more radiant. This gloss is truly glow worthy.

But don’t despair if this red seems overwhelming. Try Cherry Flash (340) for a softer less opaque shade of red. I just couldn’t resist. I had to have both!

Tip: Line your pucker first to get a more defined shape. And don’t rub your lips together when applying. It’ll prevent pushing the color to the edges. Just coat the lips with a layer or two and that’s it. You are good to go for hours!

L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss

1 Nov

The future in lip gloss is here with the L’Oreal Infallible collection. This long-wearing lip gloss lives up to its name. Lasting for hours while retaining the gloss in lip gloss. Most long-wearing products fail to live up to their claims or to maintain their glossiness. They end up dry, patchy, faded and gummy.

L’Oreal’s Infallible beats them to a pulp, with zero dryness, high shine, and relentless longevity! A feat in lip technology. Not only that but both the original and the plumping version have a plumping effect. And you only need one coat. Lips look defined, full, and lustrous for hours on end. It’s no wonder it was Allure’s 2012 Readers Choice Award Winner!

May favorite colors: Infallible Lip Glos in Bloom and Infallible Plumped Lip Gloss in Plumped Coral.

One con: The 8 hour claims seems like a bit of an exaggeration in my opinion. 3-5 is the wear I give. But I certainly haven’t tried anything that comes that close before.

From the site:

The proof is in the wear.

  • Available in 20 Infallible(TM) shades.
  • Formulated with a Shine-fix Complex, which combines color and shine for wear that lasts longer.

Infallible® 8HR Gloss has an improved hydrating formula that keeps lips softer, smoother, more colorful and glossier for eight shining hours. The patented Petit Couer applicator contours lips precisely, giving you a smooth, even, flawless finish every time. Available in a range of 20 sheer, luminous shades that stay true without changing, fading or dulling. Use it together with Infallible™ Never Fail Makeup for a perfectly polished, long-lasting look. No top coats. No feathering. No fading. It has to be Infallible™.

Glowy Skin is a Highlighter Away!

27 Aug

There is almost nothing I love more than glowy skin! It emanates health, vitality, and well-being! Besides honoring the all-important hydration quotient and diligent sun-blocking, a great highlighter can be your skin’s best friend! The light will catch those highlighted points beautifully,  imparting dimension to the skin and a luminous sheen!

A subtle but effective highlighter is the iconic YSL Touche Éclat. You can use it to emphasize favorite features or conceal shadows. Skin goes from looking tired and sallow to radiant and energized.

Key Highlighting points:
Draw a line down the bridge of your nose (but not the tip), brow bone (eye lift illusion), tear ducts (bigger brighter, more-wellrested eyes), underneath the eye (banish those dark circles), across the top of your cheekbones (cheekbone enhancement, face lift illusion), and around the center of the outer top lip and the outer bottom lip (for a fuller pout). Then gently pat pat pat until they are well-blended. The line down the bridge of the nose is also a great trick to make your nose look straighter and more narrow. Highlighter is best saved as the last part of your makeup regiment, except for the under-eyes, which should be done before your concealer.
