L’Oréal’s Infallible Le Rouge Lipstick in Charismatic Coral (421)

Definitely a very red “coral” shade. To my eyes, this is more of a warm bright red than a cool deep orange-red. It's right on the borderline of shades that I can easily wear, though - I have to watch that I'm not wearing any other reds, especially the cooler reds and maroons I tend to have in my wardrobe. I can deepen this color by putting a lip gloss over it, though I still have to watch out for the dreaded Color Clash.

This lipstick applies very very smoothly, feels great going on, and stays in place well. I do have to touch this up after a few hours, because it's a deeper shade and it shows wear and fading a bit more than the pinks and mauves that I have from this line.
