I have completely fallen in love with Loreal’s Infallible line!
One of my dearest friends has raved about Loreal’s infallible line for years and I always brushed it off.
Loreal and I did not get along for a LONG time, but I am happy to report that this is no longer true!
I have been converted and am now an infallible fan!
Loreal recently re-released their pro matte gloss’s and I purchased just one (I tried to be good!!)
Available in 10 shades.
I purchased mine in the shade “Rouge Envy.”
A Pro-Matte Revolution: Introducing Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss, our 1st whipped matte gloss. Intense high pigment shades create lasting matte color. Lush velvety texture feels soft for all day comfort. With the pro-sculpt applicator, shape and add dimension to lips.
It can be easy to get too much product on the wand so I always wipe away the excess before actually applying on my lips.
I think like many people, I questioned this whole matte gloss thing. Aren’t they opposites?
I think Loreal was going for something in-between a matte liquid lipstick and a gloss. Perhaps they wanted something more comfortable that wouldn’t settle into fine lines or dry out your lips.
This starts out with a gorgeous sheen and is very creamy and comfortable. But as the day wears on, the shine fades away and you are left with a truly matte finish.
Loreal wasn’t specific with how long these should last, but since it’s in the infallible line I guessed it would last at least 6 hours.
Well…I was wrong.
I was able to get about 3 hours before I noticed serious fading in the inner part of my lips. The color didn’t stand a chance against eating and drinking.
But, thankfully, it is extremely easy to re-apply and didn’t cake up or feel uncomfortable at all.
Now, since this isn’t a liquid lipstick and is more creamy in consistency, it WILL transfer so beware of that!
This does have a slight perfumy scent to it which I don’t love, but thankfully, it subsides quickly.
I seriously thought I would hate this, but I really LOVE it!
I think it’s the best compromise between a liquid lipstick and a regular gloss.
You get the comfort and pigmentation without the dryness. The only thing you sacrifice is longevity and transfer resistance.
I will definitely be purchasing more shades!
What are your thoughts? Have you tried this out? Let me know!
Wishing you a beautiful and wonderful day!
