A Lipstick That Lasts Long - L'Oreal Infallible Lip Colour Duo in Russet

Hiya cutie pies!
How are you doing? :)

Today I’m here with the review about a wonderful lipstick duo that lasts forever – atleast until you remove it :D

Yes! I’m talking about the L'Oreal Infallible Lip Colour Duo, a handle with smartness lip color duo that works best when applied in the right way :)

What It Claims?

Two clicks away from a revolution!

Infallible Lip Duo Compact is a two-step lipcolour designed to provide maximum comfort to even the most sensitive lips without compromising the outstanding colour finish and long wear guarantee.

Step One: A base coat for extreme wear and sealed colour for 16 hours.

Infallible lip contains transfer proof technology that allows 16 hour wear with maximum comfort. On application, the pigments form a highly resistant and extremely stable network allowing them to remain in cohesion with the lips and prevent them from deteriorating. Volatile oils and spreading agents encourage smooth application while the patented sphingolipid ingredient offers nutrition and hydration to the lips.

Step Two: A conditioning and anti-flaking top coat balm for shine and comfort.

Silicone provides protection against aggressors such as food and rubbing. Additionally, emollient paste offers comfort with a light, conditioning feel while Vitamin E adds conditioning plus anti-oxidant properties.

Quantity: 2x 2.6g

Price: 11.99$

My Take on L’Oreal Infallible Lip Duo

Actually I picked this up from a blog sale held by Samannita and I can’t thank her enough for giving this to me :)

Firstly the cute silver packaging was the attraction part for me (I’m a sucker for cure and classy packaging). It comes in a duo pack of the lipstick and the lip gloss. The lipstick is not the regular bullet kind and it comes with a wand like the glosses which is very convenient for application. Weirdly, the gloss comes in a packaging like a lip balm\lipstick :P

As per the instructions on site, the lipstick needs to be applied first followed up with the gloss. Coming to the consistency, it is a liquid lipstick that glides on super smooth on your lips and at the same time dries little quickly. The lipstick flakes very easily :( it took me several times to figure out how to apply it right. Let me guide you on that :D And the gloss, oh boy it is of the awesomest kinds. You can just put the gloss on and you are ready to rock. It is super glossy and attractive. The lipstick lasts for a really long time without eating, a little sipping or snacking is totally fine with the lippy :) Without gloss it stays on for nearly the whole day and with gloss it stays for 4-5 hours and then flakes off. And yes the lipstick is super drying but feels better when layered on top of lip balm! Dry lip beauties please stay away :(

Tips on applying the lipstick:

As I told already the lipstick is drying and it could dry so quickly even while you are applying itself. So if you follow the below steps you can get it right even at the first application:

·         Apply your favourite lip balm to moisturize your lips.
·         Leave it on for atleast 5 minutes (10mins would be good enough) and start applying the lipstick really quick. Make sure you pick up the right amount required for your lips in one time on the want – not more not less.
·         Leave for a minute or two and top off with the gloss if you wish to.
You are all set now! :)


Rose Petals:

  • Classy packaging
  • Long lasting, doesn’t flake for a long time
  • A wide choice of shades
  • The gloss is awesome to be worn with any lipstick or even alone
  • Convenient wand which helps applying the lipstick smooth and even on smaller lips too


  • Bit costlier
  • One needs a lot of patience to make it work right or otherwise it flakes off easily
  • Quantity could’ve been little more
