Spring in Makeup – L’Oreal’s Infaillible Blush Paint

We are at the end of March; it is well known that once we enter the spring season, makeup is becoming increasingly more colorful. I updated my makeup routine, and I transitioned from the very pale, almost cold tones – with predominantly silver, blue white and gray tints – to a pastel color palette.
My personal makeup collection has enlarged with the L’Oréal Blush Infallible Paint (Longwear High-Intensity Palette) – a palette with five pink undertones, designed for long wear. Every time I open this makeup item, the sweet candy-like smell seizes my “dressing table” (meaning my office desk). The sugary smell doesn’t bother me, but it may be inconvenient for someone that prefers odorless makeup or has sensitive skin.

The five colors have two grams of product each, sufficient to inspire a new look every day. The shades that are included in this set are, from left to right:
  • Dream Ballet – pink, with satin finish
  • Despinkable Me – bright peach that contains small/ discrete particles of glitter
  • Peony Rose – medium intensity pink, more matte than Ballet Dream
  • Fuchsia Afterhours – bright pink, probably the most matte finish of them all
  • Flamingo Dance – pink-orange flamingo colored (hence the name), where we find the same little glitter particles

Quality-wise: The blush formula is a standard powder; neither too dusty nor too creamy. I can build the intensity of the color, depending on the desired makeup. It stays put at least 8 hours without any makeup base (primer). With a primer (I currently use L’Oréal’s Infallible Mattifying Base), the staying power increases up to 12 hours.

I have yet to use these blushes as eye shadows; I am curious to see the results, mainly because the shades are suitable for this season of bloom.

I chose this brand because: L’Oréal is a company that I trust in; it has never disappointed me. Its value for money is more than decent, and for a brand that caters to a wide range of social groups (“drugstore brand”), their products are – most often than not – extraordinary!

The spelling of this line’s name differs somewhat both in Europe and on other continents. For instance, products made in Italy are sometimes spelled “Infaillible”, whereas products made in France are spelled “Infallible”.

Because I’ve mentioned the “infallibility” so many times, I remembered that in college, on a Philosophy exam, having to talk about the Pope’s (the Catholic Pope) attributes, I described him being “infallible, such as L’Oréal”.
