Continuing with the lip liners from the Infallible Neverfail range, here are my thoughts on the shade Mauve. This was the first shade I noticed in the range and was pretty excited about it, read on to know how this fared for me.
Price – Rs 650/-

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Mauve 6HR Infallible Neverfail Lipliner:
The lip liner comes in a twist-up packaging; thankfully it twists back. The body is color coded and made of plastic with the shade name and other details mentioned on the body in silver fonts. It comes with an in-built tip sharpener, which comes in handy if you like sharp tip for doing a precise outline. Unlike most lip liners with twist-up mechanism, this one doesn’t break easily; definitely with extra pressure it will break but it is not that fragile.
The texture of the lip liner is quite creamy and it applies without any tugging or pulling. If you have dry chapped lips, exfoliation is definitely recommended. The pigmentation is good; one swipe gives the desired results. Due to the creaminess of the lip liner it gets used up super fast. Considering the price and the quantity, I would not really call it a wise purchase.
Mauve is not mauve, blah! It is a mix or coral and pink which is pretty shade no doubt, but the name is a misfit. It looks fresh and is ideal for the summers. The shade brightens up the face really well and would look good on various skin tones. I like to pair it with blue on the eyes and fresh pink blush. You can top it off with a clear gloss and look fabulous without much effort.
The staying power ranges from 3-4 hours depending on the food/fluid intake. It is definitely not going to stay for 6 hours. The area of concern is the dryness that follows if you wear it alone like a lip color. After an hour or so the lips start feeling stretched and parched which is not at all comfortable; applying a lip balm is must. It does not feather or peel but it starts fading unevenly from the centre of the lips.
I like this particular shade but again, considering the other variables, I find this to be over priced.
