L’Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lip gloss promises that the gloss will last for 6 hours. So, I decided to put that to the test.
L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss Review
I’m not the biggest fan of long wearing products. For more on those, see my previous comparison of a variety of long lasting lip product where I did not believe that any were particularly worth purchasing. You can read a previous article on that here: Long Lasting Lip Products Review. Long wearing products have a tendency to be drying on the lips and I never seem to be a big fan of the shades that are available. They also very rarely last anywhere close to the time that is promised. But L’Oreal’s Infallible Gloss is a bit of an exception it seems, I do like this one and overall can recommend it. But don’t expect 6 hours from it.
I bought a L’Oreal Infallible Lip Gloss in Red. The color is an attractive deep red and it quite wearable. the gloss does have its sticky moments while you wait for it to set, which is true of every long wearing product I have ever tried. However, once it was set, it was not drying in the same way a lot of other long wear products are, it kept a glossy appearance, and it wore pretty darn well. I managed to drink and eat and keep it on. But after 4 hours or so it began to look dull and at five hours it wasn’t looking real good, so I removed what was left of it.
Overall, as far as long wear products go, the L’Oreal Infallible gloss is pretty good. It really does have staying power and the colors are not too bad either. If you expect less than the 6 hours promised, you will likely be happy with it.
L’Oreal also makes a lip pencil in the infallible line. I haven’t tried it, but it couldn’t hurt to pair it up with a gloss for longer wear.
