L’OREAL INFALLIBLE LIP PAINT/MATTE

Hey lovelies, how are you all doing?

L’Oreal has been one of my favourite brands since I have started using makeup. Today I am going to review a lip product from the brand, the L’oreal Infallible lip paint/matte. This has been launched some few months back but found this just recently in UAE. I actually wanted to try a few shades but they had no testers for most of the shades so ended up with just one. If I will be purchasing more shades or not, read further to know more.

My review of the L’Oreal Infallible lip paint/matte

thebeautymascot/l oreal infalliable lip paint

The L’oreal Infallible lip paint comes in a convenient squeeze tube packaging. Easy to carry and travel friendly. Comes with a doe-foot applicator. Now, this applicator is nothing special, just like any other applicator. The applicator saturates well with the colour and applies smoothly,so not a bad thing at all. The formula is light-weight and long lasting. While purchasing I thought this was matte because obviously it says matte, but it isn’t really. This is slightly glossy. It has a slightly mousse like consistency. Starts off glossy but through wear dries down a bit. But does not dry down completely and for that reason definitely transfers onto everything.

The L’Oreal infallible lip paint is really pigmented and glides on smooth and evenly on the lips. As it claims one stroke is just enough for an opaque finish. The lip paint does not settle into fine lines. As I mentioned earlier does not fully dry so your lips does not feel dry at all and is very comfortable on the lips. This stays on the lips for about 5 hours after which it fades but still leaves a stain behind. Now this five hours is when you decide not to eat, drink, kiss or whatever because this transfers. Touching up is easy so I wouldn’t mind that.

I wish more shade options were available. The only shade I am interested to try is peach pit, others I am not really interested even this shade that I own. The shade I own is called stripped brown. This shade is a brown. Stripped brown is from their latest Nudist collection, which are nude shades.

Overall

In love with:

  • The light-weight, super comfortable formula.
  • Feels hydrating.
  • Colour is rich and deep.
  • Comes with a doe foot applicator which i quite decent.
  • Wears pretty evenly.
  • Stays for about 5 hours and leaves a stain behind.
  • Doesn’t settle into fine lines.

Not in love with:

  • Transfers onto everything.
  • Only few shades are available.
  • Claims to be matte but is slightly glossy.

Overall I think the L’Oreal Infallible lip paint/matte is a good lipstick if you like any particular shades. Love how comfortable and hydrating it feels on the lips. Though claims to be matte, this is slightly glossy. I don’t mind that since I think I own too many mattes, but still the claim is not true. If i would repurchase or not, maybe I will get the shade peach pit, but no other shades seem to impress me. I think considering the price and the performance, I would say not bad at all. I rate it 3.5/5

INGLOT AQUASTIC CREAM EYESHADOW REVIEW

Hey beautiful people! How are you guys doing?

If you remember my previous post which was the first impression and swatches post of the Inglot Aquastics cream eyeshadow and the diamond lip tints, I have already mentioned that this post is going to be a review of the cream eyeshadow. And here I am up with the review.

Launching in 10 shades, ranging from silvers and golds to rose, blue and green.

Even though long lasting, thanks to its water-based formulation, the product is easy to remove, even with plain water.

Price and Availability

My review of the Inglot Aquastic cream eyeshadow

thebeautymascot/inglot aquastic eyeshadow

The Inglot Aquastic cream eyeshadows comes in a transparent tube packaging. The packaging is so convenient, you can carry it wherever you want. Hence travel-friendly.Comes with an applicator you can use the applicator and place the product on your eyelid. But the right way is to place the eyeshadow on the back of your hand and then using a brush apply it to your eyelid. But remember to work fast as it might dry out if you take too much time. There will be ample time to use it and blend it but once it dries it wont move.

The consistency of the eyeshadow is somewhere between liquid and cream. Which makes it an awesome choice to double up as an eyeliner. Has a beautiful shimmer. The eyeshadow is really pigmented. You can also layer it and build up the colour and the shimmer, if you prefer. If you don’t want to use this as an eyeshadow, it also works as a great base under any other eyeshadows. Looks so beautiful, acting as a great base and add a little bit of shimmer. You can also use a sheer wash of colour and shimmer for a less dramatic look too. Has no fragrance.

I actually love how beautiful it looks on the eyelid. Perfect to add a pop of colour too. I own two shades,20 and 15. Shade 20 is a beautiful green shade, while 15 is a beautiful copper shade . This lasts for 8 hours. The shades 15 creases a bit after that and both the shades begin to fade. Otherwise these does not smudge or crease. One of the greatest disadvantage of these eyeshadows is that if you have so many wrinkles on your eyes, then this might make it look more obvious.

Even though it feels so hard to remove, it really is so easy and that I love about it.This is not water-proof. So if you prefer water-proof makeup then you might not want it.This is water-based and removes easily with water, only by rubbing gently. The quantity is also great and I think there will not be any need for re-purchase any time soon.

Summing up everything for those who hate to read

In love with:

  • Beautiful shades available.
  • Comes with an applicator.
  • Easy to carry and travel-friendly.
  • Does not crease or smudge for 8 hours.
  • Can be layered to build up colour and shimmer.
  • Easy to remove.
  • Quantity for the price.
  • Has no fragrance.

Not in love with:

  • May accentuate the wrinkles on the eyes.

Overall, I think the Inglot Aquastic cream eyeshadow is not something that wows me but still I think it is nice to own a few shades, if you spot the shades you love. Definitely not a wrong choice, but not a must-have either. I give it 4/5 considering the quality of the product and I think it’s worth trying.
