Having tried (and loved) the L'Oreal Color Riche lipsticks, I picked the L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge lipstick in Everlasting Plum hoping my luck with L'Oreal continues.  These come packaged in a transparent plastic and silver packaging which in all honesty I really did not like - at the risk of sounding too snobbish, I felt it looked a bit cheap.  The colours looked just too tempting, though, and I caved in and decided to buy one and try.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Everlasting Plum - Review

The shade Everlasting Plum is a dark plum lipstick with just a hint of brown to it.  While I don't really like browns in lipsticks, a hint of it mixed with the plum takes this shade from a scary plum to a very wearable yet bold plum.  The lipstick is an almost matte finish, and the colour payoff is truly amazing.  As for the staying power, it stays on and on right through a meal and almost until the end of the day.  Sure, the colour reduces in intensity towards the end of the day, but it never disappears completely.  It is not a moisturizing lipstick, but amazingly (unlike my experience with any other matte lip product), this does not dry out my lips at all.

And that's me wearing the L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Everlasting Plum
I am in LOVE with this lipstick - an easy to wear darker colour that doesn't dry out my lips and stays put the whole day!  As for the packaging, well, I learned my lesson of not judging a lipstick by it's casing.  I would probably buy this one even if L'Oreal decided to sell it wrapped up in banana leaves :D :D
