REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame





Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame


Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...




Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick

It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have dropped the stick a couple of times but the stick and the product inside hasn't come to any harm per se.


Texture wise it is interesting. As a stick it looks sticky and wet. However when you swatch it is anything but. You need to dab a few dots of product to your cheek and then blend it out either in downward strokes or in a circular motion. It immediately sort of "evaporates" and leaves behind a powdery, matte texture that looks very natural and very well blended.


The product roll from this angle looks a little naughty doesn't it? :P



Once blended the product is non-transferable and has a very good staying power. It stays on me for more than 8 hours when applied over my foundation. Sadly it comes only in three shades and this was the only wearable shade that I thought would look good on me. One of the other shades is light pink that I feel would look gorgeous on lighter skintones while the other shade is an orange that too is nice color for Indian skintones.
The shade Fuchsia fame is a super flattering shade for almost all kinds of skin colors.

In addition to a blush, it can also be applied as an eye shadow and a lip color. When using it as a lippy one needs to be careful to blend the product out with one's fingers. This gives a gorgeous berry stained look and looks more flattering than applying the stick directly like one would a lipstick.

Pros
1. Packaging is sturdy and is easy to travel with
2. I love the powdery matte texture it blends out to. It gives a very natural looking flush.
3. It has no scent
4. It is very long staying
5. It did not cause any allergies or reactions on my skin

Cons
1. It is very expensive
2. They have only 3 shades in the range, at least in India
3. Packaging looks a little kiddish and tacky.

Have you tried this cute little chubby stick? Have you tried the other shades from this range? Can you share your experience with this product?

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
