The rest of the world was black and white but we were screaming in colour

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I really fell head-over-heels for my L'Oreal Infallible lipstick.. so much so that I ran out to Target and bought three more! Not only did I pick up the shade that I had my eye on (Perpetual Apricot), but I also grabbed Cherry Noir and Teaberry.

The Infallible line seems to have gotten a make-over. Instead of the small, lighter-shaped packaging, these 2-step lip colours now come in a slim, double-ended tube.

One end contains the lip colour with a large doe foot applicator, and the other side is a twist up balm with a pull off cap.

Cherry Noir is a bit misleading in the name. It's more of a dark plum as opposed to a dark red. It's a great vampy fall colour regardless. 

Continual Crimson is a great basic blue-based red. 

Teaberry is a MLBB (My Lips But Better) kind of shade. It's a neutral pink that leans more on the mauve side with very subtle shimmer.

Perpetual Apricot is a wearable orange. It has this amazing gold shimmer that gives it a sort of metallic finish.

 From L to R: Continual Crimson (taken after eating!), Teaberry, Perpetual Apricot, Cherry Noir

I wasn't joking about the lasting power on these babies. The inner part did fade (more like flake off.. I don't think I applied enough balm!) after devouring a greasy brunch and coffee, but it wasn't noticeable unless you pouted.. and honestly, who walks around like that anyway?

Some tips on these liquid lipsticks:
1. It can apply a bit streaky, so I would suggest redipping back in the pot to do your upper lip.
2. Don't smoosh your lips together right after you apply! I really can't stress this enough. It gets tacky fairly quickly and if you don't let it fully dry before you smack your lips together, it will get blotchy.
3. Be verrry generous with the balm and make sure to reapply it throughout the day as I find this really 'locks in' the colour. Don't miss the inner part of your lips!
4. You NEED an oil-based remover to take this off.

These lipsticks are $11.99 at your local Walmart, but if you hurry, you can grab some at 30% off at your nearest Target liquidation sale!
