L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss Review & Swatches

L'Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss is a new lipgloss slash lipstick that’s launching with the L’Oreal Spring 2015 Makeup Collection. Harmons has an early preview available of L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss in six shades.

I have a feeling L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss will be available in more shades when they hit mass drugstore retailers but don’t quote me on that.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss are probably one of my favorite Spring 2015 launches of the moment. Yeah, we’ve been through the fact I dislike matte lipsticks and lipglosses but I think the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss is so well done and the formula is so incredible it is well worth raving about.

The gloss, or as I dubbed it, the liquid lipstick comes housed in the same packaging as the original Infallible Le Gloss with a larger flocked applicator for application. The formula is a creamy textured velvety matte liquid lipstick. I wouldn’t gloss it a gloss really because the full coverage and pigment is that of a liquid lipstick. The texture is thinner than liquid lipsticks I’ve used in the past but still feels creamy. Now the joy here is the fact that the formula feels like it has a built in lip primer of sorts. It applies with such an incredibly easy glide on lips and doesn’t fall into my natural lip lines. It looks so incredibly smooth and flawless! I feel like it can apply itself as the application is just so even and perfect. I have drier lips and I’m prone to flaky areas around my lips especially in the Winter and this formula looks absolutely perfect no matter how dry my lips are. They aren’t moisturizing but like some mattes they aren’t drying either. I can get a solid six hours wear without the color migrating, feathering, or stiffening up and drying up. The color applies perfectly and wears just as wonderfully. The two shades I purchased provide opaque color without building on a single layer. These do have a perfume-y fragrance and flavor but it’s a lot more subtle than the one from the original Le Gloss Collection.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss is an outstanding matte gloss (or liquid lipstick if you will). This formula wears long, applies easily, looks flawless, and provides incredible color to lips. Brands should take a note from L’Oreal here because they truly went above and beyond with this release and is as good if not better than more expensive matte lipglosses and lipsticks.

Well done L’Oreal, well done.

L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss are available now at Harmons and should be available at mass drugstores in January.

    I completety agree with you about these! I have the same colors and I love them. I found mine at Walgreens for $11.49 ea. & BOGO 50% off. I’m sure they’re cheaper everywhere else. The display says they’re limited edition, don’t know if you saw that. Thanks for the review πŸ™‚

    • Isabella Muse

      oh no just noticed that how sad! they are so lovely too! my pleasure πŸ˜‰ <3! I'm glad you love them too!

  • Katrina

    Hey Muse, these look and sound fantastic!I only wish they had updated the packaging too, this just reminds me of old 90s lipgloss packaging. Drugstore makeup deserves beautiful packaging too!

    • Isabella Muse

      thanks Katrina. I didn’t mind the packaging too much but something prettier=always welcome πŸ™‚

  • Aleena

    Wow these colors look so lovely on you dear Isabella.. I am definitely going to buy these two colors.. πŸ™‚

  • karman

    sometimes i wonder how many headbands you have to match the colour of your tops! hahhaha! on a side note, how do they compare to the nyx matte lip creams in terms of longevity?

    thanks in advance!

    • Isabella Muse

      sorry, just like to have my hair out of my face and I’m a girl that likes to match πŸ™‚ I get about three to four hours with NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams karman, these wore longer for me! Hope this helps!

  • Maria

    Isabella Muse. These colors look so pretty on you. I would love to try these lip glosses. They seem to be long lasting. Thanks for the info. πŸ˜„πŸŽ…

    • Isabella Muse

      aw thanks maria you’re too kind πŸ™‚ You should def grab some they are lovely!

  • Emme

    Thanks for showing us these, I’m DEFINITELY going to be hunting these down! Both colors suit your skin tone gorgeously β™₯

  • Nicole

    Random but why do you always wear hats in all your photos? I’m just curious πŸ™‚

    • Isabella Muse

      it’s just headband to keep my hair back from my face. I have super long hair and I like it off my face when I head to work in the morning. πŸ™‚

      • Nicole

        Makes sense! You should show off that pretty hair once in awhile though, haha. By the way, I’m a new reader and I really enjoy your blog.

        • Isabella Muse

          sorry, I get dressed in the morning so what you’re seeing is me at 5ish AM getting ready for work. I don’t really do any of my makeup work at night so that’s why it’s rare you’ll see me with it down πŸ™‚ I have a few posts with it down but it’s so rare. Apologies! πŸ™‚ WELCOME! nice to meet you and thanks! very flattered you enjoy Musings πŸ™‚ <3!

  • Farah

    Wow muse you look amazing. I got the nude at Christmas tree shops and it looks orangy on my pale yellow undertoned skin :/ did you see this as well?

    • Isabella Muse

      I didn’t get the nude, it kinda scared me farah! I wish I did though now that I know they are LE πŸ™ Maybe return for another shade?

  • Jane Parks

    I bought some of this lip gloss at Walgreen’s and went back for more…unfortunately I can’t find anymore at any Walgreen’s in my city. I can’t find it online either. Terribly sad I didn’t buy ten of them! Has anyone seen them online anywhere? Thanks!
