L’oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Tender Berry (519)

L’oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Tender Berry 519

I spent the entire last month searching for an exact mauve-berry lipstick and I was not going to sit quiet until I found it, or mix colors to get it, and thank God after multiple hours of searching online and roaming in drugstores, I finally found it and I am wearing it every single time that I am going out, he he he.

Product Description:
Take your lips to the next level with Infallible Le Rouge. This revolutionary and innovative formula delivers bold, luscious color that lasts all day long, making it the ultimate beauty indulgence. Infallible Le Rouge Lip Colour offers up to 10 hours of vivid, hi-definition colour and shine, while hydrating Vitamin E keeps your lips moist and comfortable. Discover the truest color payoff in a creamy, conditioning base.

Availability:

Drugstores and mid-range “all-in-one” stores (Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, etc.)  Comes in 30 lip colors.

Cost/Amount:
$9.99 for .09 ounces / 2.55 grams. (I got it through buy-one-get-one half off for $5 :D)

L’oreal describes it as a medium, cool, mauve-red creme lipstick. I didn’t really find anything red, but a lovely berry-mauve color that is so flattering even as an everyday lip color. The color is very pigmented too.

Packaging:
It has a transparent plastic-ky packaging. The shade color is printed and colored on the edges. It has a very tight, clicky top with a lock.  I thought I might break the tube while opening because you need to apply a little pressure.

When I read that it is a long-wear lip color and that too a 10-hour claim, my instant thought was “will it dry my lips out?”  I have used some pretty nasty lipsticks in the past claiming to be long lasting, but were extremely drying and made my lips peel with them :((.  Also, they weren’t that long-wearing and evaporated in parts making my lips look like, let’s say mauled!!!

So, I got this lipstick with me and very apprehensively, I applied it.  By the time I applied it, I was smiling already! It has the creamiest finish ever, seriously, it glides so nicely on the lips. I usually start from the middle and then glide it to the corners, it just spread like butter.

My next concern was, will it stay? What about the 10-hour claim? Well, I tested the lipstick for a whole day outdoors for it, with a meal and sips of water in between, it stayed for a good 4-5 hours and after that, I needed to re-apply a wee bit, but it stayed well. It faded evenly and was left as a pretty stain, as in, it didn’t look like leftovers.

Freshly applied it looks like:

So, summing it up:

Yay’s of L’oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Tender Berry (519):

  • The color stays true on the lips longer and fades less.
  • No flaking.
  • Doesn’t strip my lips of moisture.
  • Great opacity/full-coverage color.
  • No heavy fragrance or flavor.
  • Glides easily.
  • They have over 30 shades from reds to nudes.
  • The quality can be compared to the high-end brands.

Nays of L’oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Tender Berry (519):

  • Very creamy, so might leave residue at the edges of the tube.
  • Transfers everywhere, left a mark on my plastic juice glass and then even a tissue couldn’t remove that :(
  • I feel like I have something on the lips, not a heavy “film”-y feeling, but I feel something in there, but then, its not such a big deal.
  • Almost $10 for a drugstore lipstick is a little pinching for the pocket.

Would I Purchase Again?

: yes : In fact, I might get the Ravishing Red soonest!!! The one Gwen Stefani is wearing in the ad!
