L'Oreal Infallible Le Rouge in Unending Kiss

Hello Beauties!

I'm bringing you a review of L'Oreal's Infallible Le Rouge in Unending Kiss. I reviewed this lipstick in Brazen Bronze last month right here, and have been wanting to try a second color ever since, I was so impressed with the formula. I've been wanting an everyday pink for awhile now, so I thought I'd try one from this line! So far, I'm really happy with Unending Kiss; it's a very wearable pink; it's not too bright or dark, nor is it frosted, NOR does it read "nude" rather than pink. Like Brazen Bronze, this is part of the long-wearing Infallible line, though I didn't find it particularly long-wearing (I get about 3-4 hours of wear from it; average for me). However, its creamy (though this shade wasn't as creamy as Brazen Bronze) without feeling thick or heavy on the lips. I actually find it to be a very comfortable formula. It has a faint "makeup" scent, but no discernible flavor.  I don't find it moisturizing or drying; if you have extremely dry lips, you may want to wear lip balm under it, but otherwise you shouldn't have to worry about your lips getting dry. It is also a very opaque formula; one pass is all I need to get a nice saturation of color. I got my tube of Unending Kiss from Target for $8.99, though the official price is $9.99 for .09 ounces of product.

Unending Kiss is a pale pink with a faint gold microshimmer. It almost looks like a cream at first glance, but the shimmer keeps it looking a little fresher. The packaging is fine; better than a lot of the drugstore lipstick tubes. However, the twist-up portion of the tube operates differently than most twist-ups, with less rotations per turn. I smushed the tip of Brazen Bronze because of this non-standard twisting the first time I tried to screw it down and put the cap back on; the lipstick bullet has to basically be all the way beneath the metal tube before you put the cap back on. Just to warn you. Because I did it. And felt real dumb when I did.

The lipstick! 
 Here's the product itself; it almost looks like a matte lipstick in the bullet, though it doesn't apply like that.

I have been very pleased with this lipstick formula! I wish they'd make more colors that I want, though; so many of them look very "senior" as they are frosted neutrals. I certainly think that younger generations can pull these off, but they're not up my alley. This being said, the formula is great, and the colors I have bought have been gorgeous. Unending Kiss is a great everyday pink to wear when you want a pretty lip to compliment a bolder eye or cheek. Sure, this formula isn't as wonderful to work with as some higher-end lipsticks (like NARS or Aveda), nor does it have the luxurious scent or feel of these, but it's very comfortable and wears very nicely. I don't know that you can do better for the price; as far as drugstore lipsticks go, this is a great choice. Hopefully L'Oreal will get the hint and expand this collection to include more colors!


  1. "so many of them look very "senior" as they are frosted neutrals"......hahaa I laughed when I read that! Next time I'm looking at makeup when I see old lady colours I will think of them as being "very senior".
