The Perfect Almost-Red Gloss: L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss in Plumping Red

The other day my friend Lauren was at my apartment and was perusing my makeup selection, as folks tend to do when they come over. Some people have coffee table books and snacks; I have s-loads of makeups. Anywhoodle. So she remarked that I have an incredible selection of reds and know what? She’s right.

Red lip accoutrements are my THING. I pride myself on having curated a fabulous collection of not-quite-true-red glosses and lipsticks. My type of red has to be a very specific shade: it’s a watermelon red. Do you know what I mean? It’s not exactly pink. No, dolls. It’s a light red, rather. More red than pink, but on a scale of pink (1) to red (10), it’s a 7.5.

L’Oreal has invented the Platonic ideal of watermelon reds, and they’ve called it Plumping Red*. It’s part of their Infallible selection, which I love because they last forEVER (to be said in the voice of the kid from The Sandlot. At only $10, this liquid lipcolor will punch up any outfit with which you pair it. Get involved.

    I’ve been reading for a while but have never posted — love your blog!

    Would you mind sharing some of your other favorite “watermelon reds”? We have similar coloring and I think this shade might be just what I’ve been looking for.

    I bought this a couple weeks ago in a light pink – I love it! Along with their new anti-aging lipstick. They’ve been coming out with some great stuff!

    And can I just tell you how awesome you are because you quoted Sandlot!!! 🙂
