REVIEW & SWATCHES: L’OREAL LES INFALLIBLES PRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK

It has been awhile since I review and do swatches for lipsticks. So before the year ends, let’s do this.

Thanks to Sociolla and L’Oreal Indonesia that sent me these 16 lipsticks to try. Yes, 16 pieces that will last me throughout next year, I guess.

There are 8 of INFALLIBLE PRO MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK and 8 INFALLIBLE PRO MATTES LIQUID LIPSTICK LES CHOCOLATS.

As you can see, they already different by the caps. Les Chocolates has nude shade caps and Les Chocolates label on it.

They both have the same pro-sculpt applicator, that makes them easy to sweep on lips.

How about scents? Of course, Les Chocolats smells literally like chocolate. While the black cap ones smells like fruits.

LES CHOCOLATS (swatches on natural light)
LES CHOCOLATS (swatches on natural light)

Shades? Brown toned shades (from light to dark) for Les Chocolats

INFALLIBLE PRO MATTE (swatches on natural light)
INFALLIBLE PRO MATTE (swatches on natural light)

And variable shades (mostly dark to nude) for the Infallible Pro Matte.

Formula? Being the same Infallible Pro Matte, they do have the same creamy texture. They are light weight when set to matte finish and the pigment are incredible. I only use one swipe on this pic and it already covered so well. I believe these lipsticks will be good for those who originally have darker shade of lips.

They last longer than any liquid matte lipsticks that I’ve tried and didn’t create that white flaky lines between upper and lower lips.

Tips: because they are basically matte lipsticks, and (as you might already know) they have tendencies to exaggerate natural lip lines, I recommend to apply lip balm beforehand.

#372 (PETAL POTION)

My favorite shades: 372 (seen on my lips), 842 & 848.

REVIEW: L’ORÉAL INFALLIBLE LE ROUGE

It has been a lot of gloomy days right here in Jakarta, Indonesia. Raining non-stop and the weather is just bad. When gloomy days happened, personally I love to pop some brightness on my makeup routine. And the easiest is just put on that bright lips, pronto!

Good people at L’Oréal sent me a bunch of their latest Infallible range, and these lipsticks named LE ROUGE are just a few of them. 

The packaging is slimmer than the standard lipsticks, but it’s definitely not a slim ones. Not as chubby, not as slim. Medium size, I might say.

They look matte on the tube, but once applied, they’re very creamy and shiny. 

I believe L’Oréal steps up their lipstick game with these babies. The formula really delivers bold and vivid color on the lips. Plus they added vitamin E to keep lips moist and comfortable. One swipe is enough as the shade really popped out.

They claimed this to last up to 10 hours, but after drinking and eating they might slipped and need to reapply. I recommend to use lip liner beforehand, so they won’t bleed. And to protect furthermore, just blot after applying with a piece of tissue. At these swatches below, I didn’t use any lipliner and lip balm. Please mind my dry skin around the mouth area (if you noticed, LOL).

REFINED RUBY = bright fuchsia

RAVISHING RED = coralish red

PERSISTENT PLUM = dark plum, a bit vampish (my fave!)

L’ORÉAL INFALLIBLE PARTY

Earlier this week, I attended L’Oréal Paris Infallible Party in Grand Hyatt Hotel, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Two of their brand ambassadors were there, Maudy Ayunda and Dian Sastrowardoyo, along with my fellow blogger, Hellua (aka The Lipstick Mafia). 

At the event, they discussed about their makeup enemies, as we Indonesians are dealing with sweat and humidity: biggest enemies for our makeup longevity. But worry no more, as L’Oréal Makeup Designer Paris came up with this latest makeup range, L’Oréal Paris Infallible. 

Since I received the box first from Sociolla before the launching event, I already did my review here

REVIEW: L’ORÉAL INFALLIBLE

December is a month of joy for me, indeed.
Thank you Sociolla and L’Oréal for this exclusive box, L’ORÉAL INFALLIBLE BOX,
which I received before the range was even launched in www.sociolla.com. I’m honored to be one of the chosen bloggers to review them first.

So I’ve heard a lot of good things from International Bloggers and Vloggers about the liquid foundation in this range. That’s why I’m beyond excited to unbox this red box (see my instagram @shintarosvita).

These are my thoughts about each of them:

STAY FRESH FOUNDATION

They claimed that the foundation will last until 24 hours, but seriously who wore it that long? My ordinary day with foundation on usually last from 9 AM to 9 PM at the latest, so it’s like half of what they claimed. On my super busy days, I rarely have time to touch up, so yes … I need a champion liquid foundation for my super oily skin. And this one
fits my criteria. Besides the long lasting factor (it’s not easily rub off),
the fact that it comes with pump bottle, has medium coverage, and matte but not
flat texture instantly won my heart. It gave me this fresh and natural skin
look, without getting cakey in the middle of my activity. I’ve received two in
the box, shade number 115 (Nude Beige) which is too light for me and 220 (Sand)
which is too dark. So I mixed both, and voila! I found my perfect shade.

MAKEUP EXTENDER SETTING SPRAY

Funny thing, I just watched Nikkia Joy’s YouTube about how to stop your makeup getting oily & shiny. And in the video, she sort of ‘rearrange’ makeup routine. Instead of primer first, she used setting spray first before everything else, and again at the very end. Yes,
two times of setting spray. So, I tried Nikkia’s trick with this Setting Spray.
I like the chunky matte spray bottle and the scent (which reminds me of
cinnamon), but when sprayed, the mist were a bit heavy, so be careful when you
have your clothes on. Once sprayed (shake well first), let it soak and dry,
especially if you use this at the end of your makeup routine. It did make my
blush hold for a lot longer (usually my blush will disappeared by mid-day). As
for the rest of my makeup, I still need to blot here and there, but at least my
foundation and powder stayed intact, not on the blotting paper.

PRO-CONTOUR

I guess this will work for those who want practicality on their makeup routine. Highlight & contour in one palette. For me, it’s a bit tacky to pick one up without touching the other. Since I have very light skin tone, number 813 (light) works best. The highlight shade
gave subtle sheen, and the contour is matte. Make sure you apply after
foundation before powder to make the shades more visible.

PRO-LAST LIP COLOR

These are serious lips business. I’ve tried so many lipsticks in my blogging life, but none compared to the lasting power of these babies. When I did the swatch on my hand, it took me two times of cleansing oil to erase them (don’t try to wipe them off with micellar water, it won’t work-trust me). They’re dual sided, liquid lip color on one end and clear lip
balm on the other. Liquid goes first before the balm, as the balm supposed to
lock and sets the color for their claim of 24 hours coverage. As you can see,
the liquid lip color is not matte, in fact they’re more glossy and shiny. It did
apply easily but can get a little dry on mid-day. I suggest to totally reapply
after eating, as it can get flaky if you do touch-up only. Of all six shades
I’ve received, my favorite is number 201 Everlasting Caramel (end right).

From L-R: 223,123, 211,113, 221, 201

NEVER FAIL LIPLINER

First of all, it already won me over their retractable packaging (I dislike sharpening). But be very careful as you twist, as it’s prone to breakage due to their super creamy formula. Just like the name of the product, their shade names are descriptive & super straight forward. It glides easily to frame lips and give that matte full lips look if worn alone
(always moisturize first). FYI, I have a soft spot for muted neutrals, so my
choice will be Nude and Rose.

IF YOU HAVE ISSUES WITH FILLER INJECTIONS …

…. simply because you’re afraid of the shots and the after effect, you might want to consider these latest products from L’Oréal Paris, REVITALIFT FILLER [HA].

image

[HA] stands fro Hyaluronic Acid, the so-called superstar ingredient that we actually have in our skin. [HA] has the ability to retain moisture, and very important with regard to aging. What’s more: [HA] also provides antioxidant defense against free-radical damage. Sadly, [HA] will decrease drastically once we hit 30. That’s why adding [HA] to our skincare routine, especially for women above 30 years old is highly recommended. Some opt for injections, which apparently gave instant result but we have to repeat every 6 months (not to mention that it will cost you a lot and gave bruises for some), or for safer options, apply [HA] topically. 

image

Earlier this week, me and fellow bloggers were invited to the launch of L’Oréal Paris REVITALIFT FILLER [HA] with two products in the line: Revolumizing Cushion Cream & Micro Volumizing Essence. 

image

At the event, they provide skin diagnosis, which you can do in L’Oréal Paris counters in department stores.

Well, turned out I need more hydration, even though I always felt that I applied enough moisturizer every day. As we age, our skin might not get drier per se, but they’ll definitely need more moisture. And [HA] is just the perfect ingredient for mature skin to bring back those plumpness, hydration and firm skin. 

image

Inspired by filler injections, they even created the Micro Volumizing Essence packaging to look like one. I’m impressed with the pump action packaging which allow us to distribute the right amount of product for each application. Specifically, the essence contains of 1000 mg of Pure Hyaluronic Acid, so imagine how powerful that can be! Both of them look really luxurious in terms of packaging and scent. As for the cream, it’s very smooth and kind of velvety, which left skin super soft & felt hydrated properly. I’ll check back after a month of trial.

PINK IS NOT JUST A COLOR …

…. it’s an attitude! 

As a firm believer of that quotes and as a person who literally dressed in monochrome almost every single day, I’m still a girl who believe in the power of pink. I do have a pink bag and of course, pink lipsticks.

Earlier this week, me and fellow bloggers were invited by L’Oréal Paris Indonesia for the launch of their latest lipstick collection, COLOR RICHE LA VIE EN ROSE. At the same event, they also introduced their latest Brand Ambassador, Maudy Ayunda. At only 21 years old, she scored one of her dreams to become L’Oréal Paris Brand Ambassador. 

This year, L’Oréal Paris will focus on makeup, other than skincare or haircare and they’ll name it MAKEUP DESIGNER. It’s great to know that they will make this brand accessible to customers, not professional makeup artist. Yup, they will encourage normal people like us to be our own makeup designer, because we know our face better than everyone else. 

Sharing you the pics from the event. 

Me and Maudy dressed up like Parisians. 

They pinkified the venue. 

Back to the lipstick collection….here in Indonesia, they only bring 6 out of 12 shades. They chose only the pink that most suitable for Indonesians skin tone, so the pinks won’t be too pale on our mostly yellowish skin tone. And these 6 shades were inspired by L’Oréal Paris Ambassadors, Blake Lively, Eva Longoria, Liya Kebede, Jennifer Lopez, Doutzen Kroes and Aishwarya Rai.

Last but not least, the swatch!

From left to right: Jlo (Rose Lotus), Eva (Nymphea), Doutzen (Camelia), Aishwarya (Iris), Liya (Fuchsia) and Blake (Primrose).

Matte finish with no dry feeling. That’s what I thought about these lovely pink shades. Unlike some matte finish lipstick, these felt velvety when applied and didn’t give me that one dimensional flat look. By the end of the day, they won’t cracked. Like most lipstick, the shades might vary on different skin tone. So I really suggest to try them on yourself, instead of just judging from the swatch. 

My favorite out of 6 shades? Eva Longoria’s Nymphea. Peachy pink with slightly yellow-ish pigment, perfect to complement my warm skin undertone. I believe it made my face look brighter when I wore it. Check my instagram @shintarosvita to see each swatch on my lips.

To find complete shades of L’Oréal Paris Color Riche LA VIE EN ROSE, (if you live in Jakarta), visit their counters at Matahari Department Store at Cilandak Town Square, Pejaten Village or Mall Taman Anggrek. Go find your perfect pink!
