L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paints: Review and Swatches
For Spring 2017, L'Oreal has released a series of bold, high-impact color makeup and today I am swatching up the Infallible Paints Lips ($12.99 CAD). Available in a dazzling array of bright and saturated shades, these glossy liquid lip colors promise a non-sticky finish that's free of feathering, bleeding, or fading.

Packaging:
Although the Infallible Paints Lips are housed in a squeezable tube, their caps are equipped with a doe-foot applicator built with a slight dip designed to better hug the contours of the lips. Call me old-fashioned but I actually prefer the standard doe-foot design because the little dip only works on very curved bits of the lips. So when attempting to smooth out other areas, the wand doesn't stay flush against the lips, making things much more difficult they would be with a regular doe-foot.

Formulation:
Similar to the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, the L.A. Girl Glazed Lip Paint, and the Make Up For Ever Artist Acrylips, the L'Oreal Infallible Paints Lips are pigmented liquid lipsticks with a non-setting formulation. Available in a wide array of shades, the pigmentation varies but the texture is rich and non-sticky. These aren't super heavy but you definitely won't forget that you are wearing something on your lips. Because the formulation does not set, these liquid lipsticks are not transfer-proof so I would not recommend putting them through rigorous eating and drinking. There will be some bleeding with a few of darker shades so I would recommend pairing these with one of those transparent lip liners. Overall these aren't all that innovative since there are plenty of similar products on the market, but the overall formulation is impressive for the price. See below for a breakdown of all 12 shades.

300 Lilac Lust: This is a surprisingly pigmented cool lavender that offers up a very nice coverage. Interestingly, this shade leaves behind a nice pink stain.
302 Violet Twist: A loud bright purple, Violet Twist is probably the patchiest shade out of the bunch so I really wouldn't recommend it unless you are willing to pair it with a base color. Like Lilac Lust, this will leave behind a pretty intense pink stain on your lips long after the actual product wears away.
304 Bewitching Bordeaux: This is a dark wine red. The formulation is slightly patchy and prone to bleeding.
310 Taupeless: One of the more unique shades, Taupeless is a soft taupe nude offering up a ver nice and even coverage.

312 Nude Star: This is a soft neutral nude. The formulation is on the sheer side which is very unfortunate because it is a lovely color.
314 Spicy Blush: Despite appearing like a lovely beige-rose on my arm swatches, this shade turned out to be a lot paler and a lot pinker on the lips. With that said, the pigmentation is adequate but I did have to apply a much thicker layer to ensure a flawless coverage.
316 Wild Rose: This is your quintessential Barbie pink that's very nicely pigmented. I don't find this color to be very flattering, though. It feels a little outdated and grandmotherly.
318 Fearless Fuchsia: If you love neon pinks then this is the shade for you. The pigmentation is off the charts so get ready for some retina-searing brightness.

320 Cool Coral: If orange is making another comeback this summer then this is your go-to color. This bright orange is very pigmented and rich.
322 Orange Envy: A bold mandarin orange, Orange Envy is super saturated and full-coverage.
324 DIY Red: The only shade that appears to be a true red in the tube, DIY Red wore quite a bit warmer (orange-y) than I would have liked. The formulation is A+ but I really would have liked to see a true neutral red in this collection,
326 Sultry Sangria: One of my favorites from this collection, this is a really rich marsala red. Unfortunately, the formulation is on the sheerer side but I was able to get a mostly even coverage.
