So, here we are again! The end of another Monday and the chance I get to sit down and share with you all the lipstick that has got me through the first day of my working week. Today, in honour of the sun well and truly coming out I decided to try my new L’Oreal Infallible Matte Max Lipstick in Like a Virgin – a lovely summary pink shade. This new concept of lipstick really excited me when I was browsing the shelves of my local Boots. I love my matte lipsticks for longevity so couldn’t help but buy one to try out!
Like a Virgin 002 is a pretty pink that goes on much lighter than it appears. They contain micro-oils that leave your lips feeling velvety soft. Before using the lipstick, I apply a thin layer of concealer over my lips. This gives the colour something to ‘grip’ to and makes the colour a little more intense. The applicator has a lovely soft sponge tip, and I lightly tap all over my lips building up the colour to my desired finish. Creating ombre lips would also be easy with this product, and I would be interested in buying another colour to try mixing them.
Now to the important part. Yes, it gives a very pretty delicate finish but unfortunately it just doesn’t last very long! This is a real shame as everything else about this product is fantastic! That said, I would still purchase again but I would recommend buying a darker or brighter shade than you want – to ensure the colour stays put or at least fades to still leave a hint of the colour it once was!
You can purchase the L’Oreal Infallible Matte Max Lipstick for £6.99 from L’Oreal stockists.
