L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge

L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick gets a repromote in the L’Oreal 2015 Red Carpet Makeup Collection that’s popping up now at drugstores!

For once in my life I’m actually hate that the Red Carpet Collection repromoted shades versus bringing out new ones because it managed to introduce me to some great colors I don’t own. For example, I picked up Refined Ruby and I LOVE it!

Take a look!

I picked up L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge in Refined Ruby and it was kinda life changing. This formula rivals any high end lipstick you can get out there at the moment but it does have one major flaw that I experienced but I’ll tell you more about that in a second.

Refined Ruby is ridiculously pigmented. The color pay off is fully opaque, rich, vibrant and gorgeous on the first application. The pigment is just very, very dramatic for a drugstore lipstick and it’s absolutely swoon worthy. The formula is gorgeous as well. It’s a very creamy easy to apply texture. This doesn’t drag, it hydrating but it isn’t drying either, they have a smooth, even finish with a light sheen finish! I find the formula wears for a solid six hours with very minor fading at hour seven. The color doesn’t migrate, doesn’t smear, nor does it flake during the wear.

Needless to say this is an outstanding lipstick!

Granted, I haven’t tried the other shades in this collection but if all of them perform as amazing as Refined Ruby I’d say this lipstick would fall under one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of using in my makeup life.

Now the problem….

For some reason, the barrel was tricky for me. I swirled the lipstick up to take a photo but when I swirled it down chunks of it were taken up as the lipstick hit the side of the barrel as it slid down. Not sure if this is a fluke but I HOPE that this isn’t a common thing for all the tubes because I’d likely not purchase more since this was very messy for me.

L’Oreal Infallible Le Rouge totally wowed me with a killer formula! Excellent pigmentation, a creamy texture, and a long wear makes for an outstanding lipstick! I can’t even believe I brought this at the drugstore!

Refined Ruby, might I add, is a must have red!

    Look at you rockin that red! Gorgeous! Thanks for the review. I never knew this color existed and the formula sounds awesome. Sure hope that tube thing was a fluke because that is a tragic loss of makeup. Hope it doesn’t shave any more off.

  • brenda

  • Heidi

    I have this one and love it. It’s a gorgeous color. I haven’t had any problem with the lipstick swirling up and down the tube, fortunately.

    • Isabella Muse

    • Isabella Muse

  • Jen

    That color is gorgeous! If I can find it here, I’ll buy one and let you know if I experience the same issue.

  • Lacy

    I’ll totally be grabbing this asap, Ive been on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick and have yet to master it. They’re either too pink once I get them home and on or too orangey or the red just doesn’t suit my skin tone. This looks like it could be it!

  • Genevieve

    A great looking lipstick – really suits you Isabella. I think I might have to investigate this one.

    I guess I wasn’t paying attention because I just noticed these last week. I bought one.. a beautiful warm brown, and was astonished how nice it was and how well it wore. I’m a “long wear lippie only” girl so I have high standards for wear, and especially transfer. It performed with flying colors and even better didn’t dry my lips out in the slightest. I picked up another in peach which is a warm nude yesterday and am even more impressed.. it has the same staying power which IME is so rare with a light shade, the darker shades usually stain a bit which helps them out but the paler shades don’t have that to help them out… this one stayed put all day with one touch up after I ate a full meal.
