Review: Infallible 10HR Lipstick by L'Oréal Makeup

10 July 2016

They say nothing lasts forever. But I'm not asking for forever, just something that will last the whole day, or at least until after the event is over.

I work in PR and it's important that I look presentable especially during events, but I don't have the luxury to look in the mirror and retouch all the time. The best I can do is have faith that my makeup will last through pleasantries and conversations with our guests, quick bites and sips here and there, and air kisses. The next important thing I have to consider is budget. It's easy to find long-lasting makeup if you have the money for it, but for someone like me who has a lot of other things to prioritize when it comes to finances, affordable makeup is heaven-sent.

L'Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris heard my woes and released Infallible, a full makeup range that promises to fight makeup meltdown. They generously sent me products from the line to try, but because I am such a lipstick junkie I am sharing my thoughts on the Infallible 10HR Lipsticks first.

Bid adieu to fading and flaking and welcome sophisticated, high-impact color that lasts all day with the new INFALLIBLE 10HR LIPSTICK, the #NEVERFAIL lip color from L'Oréal Makeup Designer/Paris that stays fresh and vibrant for up to 10 hours.
The Infallible 10HR Lipstick is said to end your search for lip color that lasts from morning coffee to evening wine. They sent me five shades from this line, and I'm sharing the swatches here!

Aside from filling in my brows and patting on Maybelline Super BB Cushion, I didn't put anything else on my face in these photos.

Bold Bordeaux

Bold Bordeaux is a brownish-red, kind of like a dark mauve. It almost looks like Persistent Plum, but tamer, if that makes sense.

Everlasting Plum

It irks me that my camera couldn't quite capture the exact shade of Everlasting Plum on my lips. (The swatch at the back of my hand is more accurate.) This is a rich plum-colored lipstick that borders on purple. I have a lot of purple lipsticks but I don't think I already have something that looks like it.

Persistent Plum

Persistent Plum almost looks like Bold Bordeaux, but darker and more pigmented. This is such a #girlboss lipstick, and I can see myself wearing it on formal meetings.

Refined Ruby

Refined Ruby is such a beautiful ruby color that wasn't captured by my camera. The name and the shade remind me of Dorothy's ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz, Dita von Teese's signature red lips, and the shiny red apple that almost killed Snow White. I really like this a lot, and I think I will wear the hell out of this lipstick.

Resilient Raisin

Resilient Raisin is a rich brown shade that is like Maybelline Touch of Spice's more sophisticated older sister.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of all swatches:

I still can't choose a favorite.

I've been using these lipsticks for a week now and whilst they didn't last 10 hours on my lips (it's not their fault I am such a big eater and snack-er) what I've noticed is that they are indeed long-lasting and non-drying. Thanks to the infused vitamin E, Infallible 10HR Lipsticks are hydrating and have a creamy, easy-to-glide formula that applies evenly. One swipe is enough but the color is buildable without feeling tacky or dry. If you're looking for something matte, these are not it. They settle into a demi-matte finish but that's okay because the richness and opacity make up for it..

The Infallible 10HR Lipstick comes in an expansive range of 20 shades: from subdued neutrals to vibrant hues to bold, deep shades. I was sent the bold, deep shades but I would like to get the nudes, too. They sent all swatches to me via swatch cards and if that's not a tempting invitation to get all the colors from this line then I don't know what it is. LOL. At P500 a pop, I say these are affordable enough, especially since I don't have shades that look like these in my traincase already.

I don't wear foundation except for more formal events so I haven't put the other items from the Infallible line to the test yet, but I hope you can watch out for my review of those as well.
