Beauty Review: L’Oreal Infallible Matte Lip Paint

A beautiful, bright beauty review for you today from the beautiful and bright Cara Fay!


It’s no secret that matte lips are all the rage – almost every brand has their own version out, but I always appreciate when a brand takes the trend and makes their own unique formula.

L’Oreal is a key example of this, they did it with their sponge tip infallible matte fx range that was a powdery lip formula. Again L’oreal has gone and done it with these L’Oreal Infallible Matte Lip Paints (R180).

These have a hybrid moussey/gel formula that gives the lips a uniform stain without being sticky or drying.

The L’Oreal Matte Lip Paints are available in a variety of shades from your classic burgundy, red to some out there purple/pink shades plus a gorgeous nude shade that is definitely on my list – it’s called Hollywood Beige.

The packaging of these lip paints is as unique as the formula they’re made out of a squishy plastic into the shape of a tube so immediately I though these would be a squeezy product but they actually have an applicator that is a curved doe-foot that allows the product to glide onto the lips fairly easily and without the need of a lip liner.

My personal favourite of the 4 I tried was 205 Apocalypse Red which left a gorgeous berry stain on my lips, it lasted all day and just faded away as the day went on without leaving any streaks or lip outline.

Second favourite is a very different shade for me… PURPLE shade 207 Wuthering Purple which is a subtle neon purple shade, it can also be down played if you aren’t for a full intense colour just apply a little and dab it into the lips with your finger that way you get the shade and the stain.

Here I have swatches of shades 205, 207, 202 and 204

Overall if you are looking for a no fuss kind of lip product that doesn’t require maintenance during the day then the L’Oreal Infallible Matte lip paints are exactly what you’re looking for and priced at only R180 they’re a real deal!
