I’ve noticed that a lot of the hot beauty looks lately have all featured one similar element: a strong lip. It’s no longer just about strong, statement eyes which call for a neutral lip. From the purple lip, to the black lip, to the oranges and pinks of springtime, I love a good statement lip and I think it works for everyone. So one of the lip products I thought I’d review today is the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss.
I know that some of you girls don’t like glosses because you feel like it’s sticky and impractical if you’re eating or drinking at all while wearing it. The L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss applies like a gloss, but you get a matte velvet finish that’s soft and muted. Some matte glosses or lipsticks seem to suck the moisture out of your lips after a short period of time, but I didn’t find that with this product.
One thing to know with the Infallible Pro Matte Gloss is that a little bit will go a long way. Each shade is extremely pigmented. Speaking of colors, I’m loving the modern shades in this collection. The pinks are not too bright, making them flattering for many complexions. Lots of purple hues are on point with current color trends, and again, so flattering for so many! Lastly, a couple of deep reds are seductive and classic options to top off this collections.
When you apply one of the glosses, you’ll see a lot of opaque color that has just a little bit of shine. I promise you, the miminal amount of shine fades after a little bit of wear. The color stays strong and pigmented, and doesn’t bleed or settle into your lip lines. You also don’t have to worry about your lips drying out or feeling powdery; this gloss perfects the art of appearing matte while feeling as moisturizing as a gloss. An added bonus is that these are available at most drugstores at about $10.
Has anyone tried these? What’s your all time favorite matte lip color?
