FOTD featuring L'Oreal Infallible 2 Step Lipstick in Resolution Red

This post is in honour of the lovely Kat from Kat's Colourings. After being one of the winners of her fabulous give away, I was given the opportunity to finally add the Resolution Red L'Oreal Infallible 2 Step Lipstick to my lipstick collection. A product that I had been coveting for some time, but had not purchased because of my make up no-buy.

For those a little intimidated by red but so want to sport this sexy shade on their lips, this red is for you! It is such a wearable red, it has a slight pinky tone, so not scary to wear at all. 
I love how the 2 step system is in the one tube. You simply apply the colour first. I found that the sponge applicator made for a precise application, which is important when wearing a brighter lip. I was surprised that this product did not apply patchy. Once dry it did feel slightly tight, the way a lip stain can feel on the lips, but there is a solution. Yes, simply slick on a little of the balm, and wow the lips feel so moisturised. It really did last on my lips throughout wear, though I did find fading after a few hours. The remains of an even stain still remained on my lips and I liked this look, too, so only reapplied the balm when my lips felt dry. 

To complete my look, I used:

Dr LeWinns anti ageing primer and foundation. Love these! I do need a darker shade now I've started to tan.
Coastal Scents Camo Quad to conceal and highlight under brows.
The All Natural Face finishing powder in Apricot Kisses Glow. This gives me just the right amount of peachy warmth to flatter my skin.
L'Oreal Blush Delice in shade 103. I have finally hit pan, yay!

Silk Naturals Chromatic Cream Eye Colour in Penthouse.
BH Cosmetics 24/7 Eyeliner. Love it!
L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes. I have been pleasantly surprised with how this mascara has preformed.

..and well, you know the lips :)

...and for a little fun, last one, I promise!

I am so happy with this lip product, how can I not purchase more?????????
