I'm not a massive lipstick girl, much prefer sheer lip glosses as they are not as high maintenance as bright lipsticks. But every now and then I like to put on a nice lippy and best if it lasts a decent amount of time instead of disappearing with the first drink I have. Lately I've been using for special days/nights out this bright pink L'Oreal Infallible 24H Lip Colour in Flawless Fuchsia which I received in my latest You Beauty box.
It's a two step lip product, firstly you need to apply the colour to your lips, let it dry and then moisturise the lips with the balm on the other side of the lipstick. The colour applicator is fantastic, just the right size and you can really precisely apply the colour. The shade I'm using is bright fuchsia pink with tiny bit of shimmer. Gorgeous colour for Summer!
With this lip product the right application is a key to perfectly looking and long lasting lip colour. Firstly you have to apply the lip stain to bare, dry lips, any lip balm residue will make the product go patchy. Let it dry for about a minute without touching or smacking your lips together, it will get sticky while drying and semi matte. After it has dried apply the balm on top to moisturise your lips and make them look glossy.
And voilà! You have beautifully looking lips that will survive all the eating and drinking and occasional smooch too:)
I was really impressed with the lasting power of this L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24H Lip Colour, on that particular day I applied it around 2.30pm, went to BBQ party, ate and drink most of the time, came back home around 9pm and my lips were still looking the same. I only reapplied the balm a couple of times as I was feeling my lips a bit dry but the product didn't dry them out. Also the lipstick doesn't leave marks on glasses etc. which is another plus.
To clean your lips you have to use a really good make up remover as the lip colour really doesn't want budge. It's a perfect lipstick for any busy day when you don't have time for re-applying your lip colour and ideal for any parties when you want to look your best no matter how much you're eating or drinking. If you want to try it for yourself you can get it in Boots, it retails for £9.99 and there are 8 shades to choose from.
