It’s a new week and a new lip gloss has arrived at the drugstore. LOreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss has a great range of colors and finishes but best of all it has a unique applicator. There is a great range of nudes, bold colors and lightweight lip tints. The finish also varies from matte to cream and neon?! There are three colors that really stood out to me.
The Bigger The Better (405) is a vibrant and bright fuchsia color. This particular color and texture really reminds me of Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick in Ping Pong. The difference between the two is that Bourjois version goes on creamy, then it set and dryness out . This LOreal version goes on creamy and stays on creamy. I like that it feels moisturizing and does not dry out my lips. The formula has a good stain that makes the color last longer throughout the day. This particular color translates as matte . It is easy to remove which is always great since it will not affect the condition of your lips.
Speaking of bright colors Miami Vice (305) is part of the Neon sub shade category. Once on the lips the color is not as vibrant as it appear in the packaging. It is more of a tuned down, everyday pink. It has a glossy finish and smells like strawberry bubblegum. The consistency is like a lip gloss but on the lips it gives that silicon/slippery feeling. If you are into clear but lightly tinted lip glosses you are probably going to love this Neon range.
From the cream formula I picked up a trusty nude color called Protest Queen (103). This is a highly pigmented lip gloss. The color is exactly the same on the lips as it appears in the tube. On the lips it gives that muted hint of light pink and extra bit of shine. For me the nude section LOreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss range covers all bases from creamy mattes to nude shimmers.
Overall it is very impressive the wide selection of colors and finishes LOreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss range has to offer. The applicator appears to be very similar to the one used for YSL Volupte Tint In Oil which is always a plus (getting the same experience for half the price). The applicator hugs the lips and deposits just the right amount of product. The tip also works well for defining the shape of your lips. After experimenting with the colors for a while now I could say the formula of this product is more of a hybrid – something between a lip gloss and lip stain. This Mega Gloss range is ideal for bold lip and lip gloss lovers.
