Drugstore Makeup Tutorial for Summer 2011!

LiveLoveLaughs1209 requested a drugstore makeup tutorial. At first I was like...drugstore? But I own very few drugstore products! However, I took the opportunity to get an education in affordable makeup. My naivete was short lived when the first product I purchased was a total DUD! So buyer's beware - Revlon Cream Shadow Quads are bad news bears! However, I found some really nice drugstore products that I am really starting to love! Enjoy!

L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick

There's been a lot of hype about the new L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick especially given Gwen Stefani's endorsement/advertisement of the product.  Gwen Stefani looks absolutely radiant in her add sporting this lipstick!  She has deep pigmented lipstick loaded with shine!!!  Not sure which lipstick she was wearing because I didn't really find all that pigmentation nor shine in L'Oreal's Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick.  While I don't think the product is bad, I just don't think it does what it advertises and I'm a little tired of buying product that claims to do something it really doesn't do.  

I purchased the lipsticks in three colors:  714, Blazing Sangria, 421 Charismatic Coral and 138 Forever Fuschia.  I gotta tell you, the lipstick went on very creamy and felt wonderful on initial application.  I was a little disappointed in the pigmentation.  I didn't feel it was as true to its packaging as it could have been.  What was disappointing to me was that after about 30-45 minutes of wearing the lipstick, I could feel it get substantially drier on my lips and almost sticky when I pressed my lips together.  It had lost the moist, creamy feel that it had when initially applying.

I did find the product stayed on quite a bit longer than a typical lipstick, but not the 10 hours it advertises.  I got about 5 hours out of it and its important to note, this was not 5 hours of a creamy, shine.  While the product stayed on for 5 hours, it did lose some of it's pigmentation and definitely list it's shine and creamy feel.
