Christmas has come and gone and now the New Year will arrive. With the New Year, we also have some incredibly gorgeous makeup products to point out, one in particular having grabbed our attention and decided to help us remodel the definition of sexy in our minds. There is nothing more alluring than a beautiful red pout, particularly during the holidays, no matter which it is that you celebrate. Diwali and Christmas come to mind first in any case, just because of the bright red aspect to the red, red lip that is created through the revolution matte lip. Matte lipsticks have appeared all over the place, but it is the matte reds that have taken over the runways and every designer’s fantasies, becoming the muse needed to recreate a whole look or wardrobe. In this case, the matte lip is the rendering of the original look through the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Max Lip Pen. You heard us right! The French brand has pulled through with an end-of-the-year piece that we most certainly need to add to our makeup bags, an imaginative novelty that is both unusual and original. Why not grab one of these intriguing shades? The red is a must though. We cannot stress that one enough!
So what exactly is the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Max Lip Pen? It is a revolutionary matte lip makeup product, which is available in 6 hues:
• 001 Silencio – pale pink
• 002 Virgin – pink
• 004 OOPS! I Pink it Again – hot pink
• 006 Disturbia – orange-based coral
• 007 Say My Name – red
• 008 I Gotta Feeling – purple
While the first three range between a pale pink and a hot pink, the Virgin being a sweet almost baby pink, the latter three are of harder hues; Disturbia is of an orange-coral combination that is quite strong in of itself, Say My Name is a pinkish red that comes on as a beautiful deep color, while the final piece is pretty purple and will be looking rather vampy. We are wondering how they would look in combinations now.
These are not classical lipsticks though, nor are they in liquid form. What they look more like is eyeshadow pens, created out of a powder product texture. You press a button and the lipstick comes forward, the soft sponge at the end helping you apply it on. You get through this some intense colors and a velvety finish that you would not get with a classical tube. Furthermore, the oils in the product leave the lips hydrated for over 8 hours, soft and supple to the touch and all for only 13 Euros.
They are thankfully already on sale as of this month and we are so looking forward to the creation of some infallible ombre effects on these lips of ours. The perfect pout awaits! Now, we just need to get the intensities, saturation and contouring done right, to match our tastes and out moods. Perhaps we can get a few tutorials up soon?
