Something strange has happened to me. All these years I have steered clear of anything shiny, shimmery or glittery on my lips. Mattes have been an all time favorite but things are slowly changing. Or maybe it is just a phase who knows but I see myself getting drawn towards shimmer lip colors! When I went to the L’Oreal counter to check out the new Infallible Mega Gloss range, I did not even look at the cream finish glosses! My eyes were stuck on the Dazzle range and I picked up a beautiful glittery dark purple berry shade called Gloss Me I’m Gorgeous. The Infallible Mega Gloss range is part of L’Oreal’s Cannes 2016 collection and priced at Rs 850 each (Please learn from them Revlon!)
I’ve never been a fan of lip gloss because I like a bright and bold opaque lip and I hate the stickiness that comes with a gloss. However, last year’s MAC Vamplify range made me rethink my opinion about lip gloss. This year, the Infallible Mega Gloss range has done the same. I’ve not tried any of the Cream finishes but the one I have is pretty good. The texture is light, creamy, moisturizing, the glitter does not feel grainy on the lips, it is not sticky at all and gives a lovely shine. It gives semi-opaque color to the lips and lasts for around 2-3 hours on me before reapplying. The applicator has a very interesting bent curved shape that really helps to pick up the right amount of product and reach every nook and corner for an even application.
This is what the color looks like on its own.
Overall, a pretty good formula for a gloss. I would have liked it to be a bit more pigmented and have a better staying power but in terms of texture, excellent! And I’m glad that L’Oreal did not release these with a ridiculous price. I will probably get one in a cream finish as well. Any shade you recommend?
