I was on the hunt for a new lip gloss that actually lasts for several hours without drying out your lips. After a little research, I decided to try out L’Oreal’s Infallible gloss. They claim it lasts a full six hours between applications and never fails. That is a lofty claim and while this lip gloss is nice, it certainly doesn’t last six hours.
It has a nice texture with a subtle shimmer but nothing too shiny. It definitly lasts longer than most glosses between applications. I’d say you could go 3 hours if you don’t eat or drink anything and an hour or two with food and drink depending on how much you consume.
I’m the queen of all lip glosses/lipsticks named coffee,mocha,latte, brownie etc. You could say I’m a creature of habit. I opted for Dulce de Leche which you guessed it, is the perfect shade of a neutral brown with a hint of shimmer. Walgreen’s had a buy one get one half off so I decided to go crazy and get a second tube in Sangria which is a nice berry shade that would complement most skin tones.
The one thing I don’t care for is the wonky applicator. it’s kind of limp and flaccid which is an unusual choice of words but really accurate. The spongy applicator is triangle-shaped with a hole in the center. Supposedly the hole is supposed to suck up extra gloss and you control how much comes out by the level of pressure you apply. Now back to the limp part, the sponge kind of hangs there so there is no real support and it kind of mops sloppily all over your lips. I’d prefer a more traditional applicator but this isn’t enough to turn me away from the product. Just make sure you check your lips after you apply. The lid is flat and metallic on all sides so you can use it as a make shift mirror in a pinch which is nice.
At $9.99 this is a solid gloss that delivers. It smells pleasant, the consistency is not too runny, thick, or sticky. And the shades are really pretty without being too bold or over the top. If it wasn’t for the lofty 6 hour claim I’d give it an A. But due to such an unrealistic promise and the weird applicator I’m going to give it a B+.
