L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipsticks: Review and Swatches
New from L'Oreal comes an exciting range of liquid lip colors called the Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipsticks ($11.96 CAD). Promising up to 24 hours of wear and available in 12 neutral and sophisticated shades, the collection features a creamy, highly-pigmented formulation.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick
Packaging:
The L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick comes in a sleek plastic tube with a frosted translucent finish. The doe-foot applicator has a flat, paddle-shaped design and a hollowed center. It picks up plenty of lipstick and works really well at smoothing out the product.

Formulation:
With a rather thick, viscous formulation, the Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick is very pigmented and high-coverage. Once applied, the satin finish takes at least 15 minutes to completely set, which is kind of a drawback. The color won't smudge or crease while drying but I wouldn't recommend eating, drinking, or pressing your lips together during that time. Once completely dried down, the finish is 100% transfer-proof but slightly sticky when the lips are pressed together. Because the formulation is not clay-based, like most other liquid lipsticks, the Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick is flexible and non-drying on the lips. However, the finish is a bit mask-like so I am constantly aware that I have something on my lips.
This collection is similar to the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink (reviewed here) but the formulation is a lot more pigmented and the finish is also less tacky. In terms of wear, these are pretty much bullet-proof. Even with eating and drinking, they will last all day. The formulation actually only removes with a bi-phase makeup remover. Micellar waters and cleansing oils won't even make a dent.

Please Note: For the swatches below, I didn't have time to wait for the lipsticks to completely dry down. Therefore, some of them appear to have a "wet" finish. But as I've mentioned above, all these shades eventually set to a completely matte finish.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick
352 Shake Down: This is a creamy milk chocolate brown. The pigmentation is fantastic so only one swipe is needed for an even coverage.
354 Nudist: A pale beige nude, this shade is surprisingly pigmented and opaque.
356 Deeply Disturbed: A deep eggplant purple, this color is rich but slightly patchy. A second coat may be needed to attain an even coverage.
358 Cowboy: This is a rich caramel brown with a creamy and pigmented formulation.
360 Angora: This is a cool-tone gray-beige. Similar to "354 Nudist", Angora has an amazing pigmentation despite being such a light color.
