How Professional Makeup Compares To Other Brands

Have you ever gone to your local supermarket, or drugstore and found yourself wanting to try something new in the cosmetics aisle? That’s probably a yes for everyone, but how often do you usually go for it? The quality of cosmetic brands that are found primarily in drugstores are often hit, or miss. Sometimes you’ll come across a gem and other times you may end up disappointed and ready to move on. Lately, I’ve definitely come across some keepers. Here’s a quick comparison of the top lipstick brands I’ve found recently.

L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints

I was grocery shopping a few weeks ago, and I love taking detours while shopping produce to go see what’s going on in the cosmetics aisle. Well, while I was there I saw these vibrant bottles that looked like they could only be lipgloss. They were L’Oreal’s Infallible Lip Paints. What drew me to these were the colors, and the fact that they’re actually lip paints. I was so tempted to try these, I’m usually very skeptical of lip products like these. I feel they’re usually a disappointment, because either the color wears off too quickly, it’s not as bright as advertised, or the products dries my lips, and a dry colored lip is not cute.

I opened one up, not to test it, but to look at it’s consistency. It looked gooooood, so I bought it, and guess what? It was amazing! I absolutely love this product and would definitely choose these over other brands with similar products. First of all the color choices are insane. I purchased the hot pink and lilac colored lip paints, and the results were absolutely amazing. The paint is thick, moisturizing, and the colors last way longer than I thought it would. If you’re not eating and, or drinking then this product will definitely give you coverage for some hours.

Even after you eat, or drink you’re still left with a vague stain on your lips. Reapplying is simple and easy. I also love the applicator stick the precision is perfect. I always get it right when making sure that I’ve applied the  gloss cleanly and neatly.

I’ve tried this product and I did enjoy it. Smashbox also has a great variety with their Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick. This product is matte, which is common for most lip stains, or paints. The colors show up nicely on skin tones. This brand is actually quite popular with YouTube beauty vloggers. I can see why, because they have a really pretty, dry finish. They’re definitely photoshoot ready. This is a great product and brand to compare with the L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints.

The Comparison

Comparing the two what stood out to me most was vibrancy and consistency. The L’Oreal Infallible lip paints were designed to compliment any skin tone. Having brown skin tone usually makes you worried how colors will show up on you. I can honestly say that they got it right and thought about women of color.

With the SmashBox Always On Matte Lipstick I didn’t really feel that these colors were designed for all skin tones. The colors aren’t as vibrant, and there’s really no moisture for your lips. It’s not a dry product going on, but once it dries there’s only a matter of time before it gets too dry and your lips crack. I would definitely choose the L’Oreal lip paints over the SmashBox Always On Lipsticks. I also feel that because the L’Oreal product has such a thick consistency that you use less, which in return causes you to save more of the product and your money!
