I received this fabulous Rimmel London Lip Velvet – 307 Meteoric Matte lip stain in a beauty box subscription and I thought I’d share. I’ve been using it for the past couple of weeks to test how long it lasts and I must say that the vibrancy of the color does last for up to 8 hours. Naturally, there will be some fading but in my opinion even with the little fading it was still popping.
I am very satisfied with the finish of this product on my lips as well. It’s not sticky or gunky and has a velvety finish. I did however, experience some dryness but that’s because of the matte finish. Nothing a little lip balm before application can’t fix. You can go about with your normal day eating and drinking and not having to reapply for up to eight hours.
This is also a perfect lip stain just in time for Thanksgiving and the holidays for those who are not yet comfortable flaunting bold red lips. This is a perfect substitution color that universally flatters every skin tone.
L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro-Last Lipcolor is a lip stain that is similar to the Covergirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor that I’ve used in the past with it’s two step application. It has two sides, the lip color on one end and a hydrating lip balm on the other end.
I bought this in the shade Incessant Russet 219 and is sort of a reddish brownish color on my lips. It’s a vibrant color that can easily transition from sultry daytime to sexy night time. In my opinion, I do prefer Covergirl’s Outlast Lip Color to this one because the color seemed to last a lot longer throughout the day as I ate and drank. With L’Oreal’s Pro-Last, the color faded quickly especially in the center of my lips. I also found myself having to re-apply the lip color and the lip balm a few times because the color fades and it’s not as intense. It also had a tendency to get very dry and flaky, which was also true for the Covergirl outlast, but this one seemed to happen faster.
I guess it would last 24 hours if we excluded activities such as eating and drinking, but if you feel like you wouldn’t be annoyed with re-applying the lip color and lip balm then you might wanna give it a try because the color is fantastic. D, however, exfoliate your lips before applying which would decrease the flaking and give you a longer wear. What’s your favorite L’Oreal Lip Stain?. Post your comments and pics. Puckers to you xoxo.
If you’re looking for that one lip color to revamp your lipstick collection then Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in shade Napa Vineyard will do the trick. Burgundy colored lipsticks have lately become my new fave and is a shade that I find myself wearing more often to work and even dinner. It is the perfect shade to transition from day to night which is a must have for every woman.
It’s 100% natural and went on very smoothly on my lips. I did prep my lips before with my brown sugar and olive oil mixture and then put a very thin layer of my Carmex Lip Balm to lock in the moisture. This lip crayon stayed on during my entire time at work, even through lunch and some snacks in between. I paid around $9 for the stick but it’s definitely worth it. Try it out and let me know what you think. Puckers to you xoxo.
