L'Oreal Infallible Lipstick - 5 Colors: Rich Topaz (822), Intensely Mauve (512), Charismatic Coral (421), Brazen Bronze (834), Tenderberry (519)

Like most of you, I was awed by the Gwen Stefani commercial showing bright red lips that transferred no color with a swipe of her finger. Well, the commercial is fake, but overall, the lipstick is decent. Decent? Yes, and here's what I mean... They have no odor or chemical taste, last a little longer than regular lipsticks and they go on smoothly without drying out one's lips. I don't have to tell you all that dry, flaky lips is a common problem with most extended-wear lipsticks that claim to stay on forever. With the L'Oreal Infallible Lipsticks, you will not need a moisturizing topcoat!

Ok, I know the big question most of you want to know is "how long will it last?!" In short, it totally depends on what you're doing while wearing the lipstick.  Eating? Kissing? It will come right off if you eat anything, easily transferring onto a napkin or glass! Darn! I was so hoping they would last through a night on the town, including dinner... Wishful thinking! So here's the deal... If you don't eat, drink, or kiss and only talk these lipsticks will last about 3 hours at most. If you plan on doing anything other than just talking, treat them like any other regular lipstick!

Now on to details about the five colors I purchased - Rich Topaz (822), Intensely Mauve (512), Charismatic Coral (421), Brazen Bronze (834), and Tenderberry (519):

RICH TOPAZ Description: Warm; highly pigmented; matte; the perfect brownish neutral but darker than nude

INTENSELY MAUVE Description: Cool; highly pigmented; matte; a true dark rosey-mauve color (not too light, not too dark); can complement most skin tones

CHARISMATIC CORAL Description: Cool; highly pigmented; matte; dark coral; perfectly between red and orange; not gaudy; not fluorescent-looking

BRAZEN BRONZE Description: Warm; lightly pigmented; shimmery; sheer; light-brown; neutral

TENDERBERRY Description: Cool; highly pigmented; light to medium mauve (lighter than "Intensely Mauve")

Hope you all find this info helpful. I will be posting more pictures soon... Stay tuned!
