Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss

You may love lipgloss. But your lipgloss don’t love you back. You know how it goes. She’s like that flighty girlfriend who shows up at the party, makes a glossy but brief appearance – and before you know it, she’s gone without a trace.

infallible Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip GlossL’Oreal knows the drill…which is why they created Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss, the first longwearing gloss in one step. No touch ups, no top coats, no feathering and no fading – for six hours. No kidding!

I swear it’s not an urban legend because I’ve personally witnessed the miracle. The color clings to lips for hours, never falling flat. Yesterday, my friend gave me a totally unsolicited compliment three hours after I applied Infallible Lip Gloss in Bloom.

The patented ‘Petite Coeur’ applicator allows for precise, flawless application – so you don’t have to worry about going outside of the lines, which can be an issue with the more pigmented of the 16 shades. Besides Bloom, I’m also a big fan of Rebel Red, a gorgeous scarlet that I imagine will flatter a variety of skin tones. And because it’s infallible, the crimson color stays exactly where you put it – meaning you don’t end up with red smeared across your face à la Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?

L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip Gloss is available at a drugstore near you, and costs less than an Alexander Hamilton.

Creme-a-licious!

cremesheen Creme a licious!
When they release a new collection, the kind folks at MAC usually send me a sampling of goodies. The care package whets my appetite, and then I head to the MAC store/counter to pick up more beauty treats. But I was so jonesing for the new Cremesheen collection, I couldn’t help myself. I totally jumped the gun and bought myself Speak Louder (clean poppy blue pink) to satisfy my craving.

speak+louder+cremesheen Creme a licious!
Lustre used to be my favorite MAC lipstick finish. Today, Cremesheen might just have taken the title. Like Lustre, Cremesheen is somewhat sheer with a beautiful sheen…but the consistency is creamier (hence the name) and the color is more amplified.

Robin, the wonderfully helpful makeup artist at Macy’s midtown Philadelphia store, suggested that I top Speak Louder with Lustreglass in Pinkarat (soft-toned pink with gold pearl).

pinkarat Creme a licious!
I have to admit, it was an impulse buy. But seeing how delicious Pinkarat looks on its own proved to me that an impulse purchase can be a sound investment.
