I am back with another review. This one is going to be on Loreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Refined Ruby. Refined Ruby is my most worn and most loved and most favorite Red lipstick. I love it too too much.
Its priced at INR 900 and USD $9.99.
Lets get the review started.
PACKAGING: The lipstick is packaged in a clear and transparent tube and it quiet sturdy. Being transparent allows you to see the color without opening it. All the lipsticks in this range have a red color coating on the top of the lid, which doesnt make much sense to me, the packaging should be able to help identify the color of the lipstick not misguide you. Also for the price the packaging isnt up to the mark. But looks aside the packaging is secure and sturdy so the lipstick is travel friendly.
TEXTURE: I own a couple of shades of this line and can safely say that texture of the lipstick is soft and smooth. Its formula is thicker so its not buttery smooth but smooth enough. Being a red shade it is very pigmented shade and color payoff in a single swipe is exceptional. Its a creamy lipstick and it has semi matte finish so its not exactly glossy or shiny. (If you do prefer that kind look then I suggest using a lip gloss.)
COLOR AND STAYING POWER: Ooooo…where to begin.Its a darker red with blue undertones. Its not on the orange side and thus makes it all the more flattering for almost all skin colors. Its vibrant and a bold red which sure makes a statement. The staying on this lipstick is A-M-AZ-I-N-G. It is infallible literally…of course in between meals it does fade away but ever so slightly. It stays for a good 7-8 hours on the lips without having to reapply.
APPLICATION: As with any bold and bright shade ans especially with reds its best to start with a lip liner. This lipstick is very pigmented and thus for most part one swipe is sufficient. Since it is not buttery smooth it is advisable to keep your lips moisturized.
OVERALL VERDICT: I am very pleased with this lipstick right from the texture to the formula to the staying power to the color everything is bang on. Its true to its claim , its a long wear lipstick but what is surprising and wonderful is that its still easy on the lips. The lipstick doesnt dry out even after hours of application as most long hour lipsticks do, they get dry and uncomfortable on the lips they get between the lines. Not this one mam, no no no…I would definitely repurchase this particular shade, and would most definitely try out other shades in the line. I am HAPPY girl! This product is worth spending the money on…because I’m worth it! okay kinda cheeky…but what…(just writing about this stuff makes me happy).I would definitely recommend you all to try this lipstick. Even if red is not your color do check out other colors in the line, they have an awesome selection.
Good job L’Oreal keep ’em comin…..
Until next time…..
