L'oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss
L'oreal Paris' new Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss is the latest addition to the Infallible Pro-Matte line (of which I am already a huge fan of). The glosses offer a combination of liquid lipstick and lipgloss in an all in one formula that lasts.
Liquid lipsticks are all the rage right now, but they usually dry to a stiff finish that can and will dry out your lips like mad. If you dare add a gloss over it chances are it will break down fast, plus your might not want the glossy look. Two process long lasting lipsticks are great too, but they don't give the same glossy effect. These babies are thick and rich in pigmentation like a liquid lipstick but don't dry like they do. They stay on the lips like a long lasting gloss but are super pigmented. They also don't have a real shine to them like a gloss. The result, a pigmented lip with colour that stays put and won't feather.
They also have a pretty darn neat precision tip applicator that makes messing up very hard to do.
The colours are so pigmented that after about 10 minutes of wear they will stain your lips pretty darn well. Which I actually like because it means it really lasts on your lips even if the gloss part wears off.
They also come in some pretty amazing shades, 12 in total. From the extremely vibrant Fuchsia Amnesia to the more subdue Nude Allure, they all pop! I think this is because of how pigmented and opaque they are.
They feel soft and creamy on the lips, I also find that they don't dry out my lips half as bad as a liquid lipstick.
So overall I find these balms, rich, creamy, soft and extremely pigmented. They last quite a long time on your lips and even stain them to a degree. I love their look and texture so I would definitely recommend them to anyone to try out.
