 L'Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear 2-Step Lipsticks Review

I've always struggled to find the perfect liquid lipstick for me - too drying, smudges all the time, doesn't last very long - I've never been able to find one that I adore and works well for me. That is, however, until I discovered the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear 2-Step Lipsticks, which have revolutionised the liquid lipstick game for me! I've honestly fallen head over heels for this product and so I thought it was only right to review it for you guys, so keep reading to hear more about my current favourite lip product!

I've always tended to avoid matte lipsticks whenever possible, as I just find them incredibly difficult to manage and they end up looking crusty and patchy after a few hours of wear. This is especially true with liquid lipsticks, which seem to excessively dry out my lips. However, I've found the exact opposite with the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear Lipsticks, as they apply smooth and even to the lips without clinging to any dry patches.

The balm side helps to add a layer of moisture and keep the lipstick looking refreshed. It's also nice to be given the choice to wear this product either matte or glossy depending on your preference and what look you want to create. I personally prefer the high-shine finish and find that this makes it much more comfortable to wear for hours at a time, although wearing the liquid lipstick alone is equally as stunning.

Another thing that I love about this product is that it's completely transfer-proof and doesn't fade or bleed at all, meaning I'm not faced with the embarrassment of having lipstick on my teeth all day without realising, or constantly staining the edge of a glass whilst drinking. They genuinely lock into place all day and don't budge unless you use a balm or oil cleanser for removal (you may need to do some scrubbing if you're relying on a makeup wipe!), living up to L'Oreal's long-wearing claims. I've applied one of these liquid lipsticks before going out for a meal or on a night out clubbing, and let me tell you that my lipstick was exactly in place at the end of it, which is actually unbelievable! Products like this are perfect for me, as I find it difficult to maintain an intense lipstick and reapply it every couple of hours.

This product comes in 16 different shades varying in matte and shimmery finishes, although I have to admit that the shade range isn't the best and a few of the colours do look a bit peculiar on my skin tone. I originally picked up 'Wandering Wildberry' which is a mauvey berry shade that'll be perfect as we approach autumn, and I also own 'Beige To Stay' which is a brown-toned nude, although I'd like to try one of the pink ones as well. These are both matte shades, and I've heard that the shimmers are gorgeous on application yet quickly fade to a semi-matte finish after a short while, so this might be something to consider before purchasing them.

When applying the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Longwear Lipsticks, I find that a lip liner isn't needed, although you can apply one for some extra precision. Due to the tapered edge of the brush, it's really easy to apply these lipsticks accurately, and that is coming from someone who finds it difficult to achieve an even shape and application with bold lipsticks. Only one layer is needed for an intensely pigmented look, and although it's buildable I really wouldn't say that multiple layers are necessary. I then let the lipstick dry for a few minutes until the wetness becomes more of a tackiness before applying the balm, to ensure that it doesn't wipe away any of the lipstick underneath.

If you would like to buy these products then you can do so here, and be quick as L'Oreal are currently offering 3 for 2 on L'Oreal products. (This is an affiliate link, but all opinions are entirely my own)

Overall, I really love these L'Oreal Paris liquid lipsticks and I'm so glad that I discovered them! If you've also tried them or have any other liquid lipstick recommendations, let me know in the comments!
