What I have to say about L’oreal infallible blush paint longwear stick Pinkabilly:
Okay, first things first.
L’oreal infallible blush paint longwear stick Pinkabilly costs less than Colorbar blush stick. L’oreal one costs Rs.999 whereas the Colorbar one costs Rs.1,200. The price difference of Rs.201 is important for anyone who always has to make a decision between food and makeup. First, the crayons and now these. Thank you, L’oreal ^_^
Now, let’s start with the colour. It’s a beautiful coral pink. If it hadn’t been for the shade, this baby wouldn’t be resting in my vanity and chilling out with others.
The packaging is pretty basic. The lid of this blush stick is colour-coded with the shade. The cap shuts down tightly after every use.
The texture of L’oreal infallible blush paint longwear stick is beautiful. It has a really creamy texture which blends out well with fingers as well as a brush. Since it does take some time to dry completely, you easily have a minute to get a streak-free application. I have to say that even though I like wearing The Body Shop lip and cheek stain, I do get a bit stressed out as it dries very quick.
To apply it, I swipe the stick in small motions on my cheeks and then, blend using either fingers or brush. I use it after foundation and then, set my face with powder.
I find the formula nicely pigmented, so there’s no need to pack on a lot. As for the finish, it’s matte. On my oily skin, it stays for 4+ hours without a primer underneath. Not bad but not awesome either.
Also, I don’t like how the formula translates on lips- making lip lines look more evident.
That said, I do like the convenience of blush sticks. You can toss them in your purse without worrying about their breakage and apply them on-the-go. If you find L’oreal infallible blush paint longwear stick Pinkabilly expensive or not worth the money, just use your lipstick as a blush in case of emergencies. I do that even on some regular days.
