L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Les Macarons Liquid Lipstick is a new macaroon scented long-wearing liquid lipstick that launched in six shades for Summer 2019. These are pretty much a follow up to the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick that launched last year. I found that shade range really difficult to wear but I think that the Les Macarons shades might prove a lot better! I only purchased one shade which was Mon Caramel which is a really lovely dusky nude pink! This shade convinced me I might need to try a few more in this collection.

Here’s my review and swatches!

Last year, scented makeup at the drugstore was all the rage. I wonder if we’ll see some more of that for Summer 2019! I have my doubts as I think we are going to see a lot of neon everywhere. I was a found fan of the scented stuff though from the Covergirl Peaches & Chocolate Collection to L’Oreal’s own Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette. I don’t think everyone loves the novelty of scented makeup but I thought it was pretty fun.

This formula is actually fairly comfortable. It glides on lips easily, it’s super thin, very lightweight, and it sets to a matte finish that wears for six to seven hours without absolutely no feathering or movement. I had issues with the color falling into my natural lip lines when I tried the Les Chocolats shade range but the Les Macarons formula is a lot more smoother and even on my lips

The formula is quite lightweight and not as drying as other liquid lipsticks and not sticky nor tacky. It’s pigmented and provides the opaque color any lipstick would but isn’t as easily removed as a standard lipstick and does require an oil-based makeup remover to get completely off. It’s not moisturizing but it isn’t super drying either.

Sadly, unlike the Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick this scent and flavor isn’t as strong. It has a faint vanilla fragrance and I didn’t really notice a flavor at all when I applied it which should be a relief to sensitive users.

This formula and texture is very nice and wears comfortably on my lips and the shade range is a lot better this time around which makes L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Les Macarons Liquid Lipstick worth exploring!

Anyone try these?
