review: l’oreal infallible pro-matte gloss

Our next product on our liquid lipstick train stops at the l’oreal infallible pro-matte gloss. Although this product doesn’t directly name itself a liquid lip, the product description claims it is as matte as a liquid lip without drying your lips out, hence the “gloss” aspect. There are 10 varying shades in the range.

prices range from:

$7.99 at target.com

$7.99 at walmart.com

$9.99 at walgreens.com

$9.99 at ulta.com

$9.99 at lorealparisusa.com

I bought all ten shades (& accidentally 2 of nude allude, so please excuse the extra swatch). I decided to test out forbidden kiss for a sunday at work. I put it on at 11am before I walked into work. It applied kinda patchy on the first swipe so had to do another layer which made it much darker than I expected. It was very wet and didnt look the slightest bit matte. Thinking back to the revlon lipsticks, I figured it may take a little while to become matte.

Throughout the day, I would peek at a mirror and the lip was still not matte. After everything had settled down, I look a good look at the lip and it was sticky and looked as if I was wearing a very pigmented gloss. I asked my coworker what she thought of it and said it wasnt her favorite lip. When I told her it was meant to be matte, she couldnt believe it because it had been at least 6 hours and still looked like a gloss.

If you are looking for a very pigmented gloss then this would be a perfect cheap alternative. In some ways, it reminds me of the anastasia beverly hills glosses because it is so pigmented and very shiny. But all in all I was disappointed because it was marketed as matte and in actuality was nothing like how it is advertised. Im not much of a gloss girl so this one isnt for me but if you want a pop of glossy color, there are some great shades for spring and summer!

As always let me know what you’ve thought about the product if you’ve given it a try. Expect a new post next friday. Please give me any suggestions for products I should try, reviews or posts you’d like to see. Thank you for your support
