L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paint #review
Happy Louis Riel Day, Family Day, Heritage Day, President's Day! I hope everyone had fun productive day today. I ran a few errands and did some grocery shopping. Not an especially fun day but necessary.
Today I am sharing my thoughts on the new L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paints. Particularly Spicy Blush. I managed to snag this in a recent Shoppers Drug Mart redemption event so my cost was nothing but these normally retail at $11.49 at SDM. This week, they are on sale for $10.99.
Don't they seem a little pricey for a drugstore lip product? Are they worth the bumped up price tag?
Packaged in a squeezy tube like the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks, the Infallible Lip Paints come with a doe foot applicator instead of sponge applicator. The doe foot has a little dip built into the end to 'scoop' up more product. And they smell like a fruity jube jubes!
Advertised as a Glossy Lipstick, this Infallible Lip Paint came across more as a super creamy lip gloss.
As I mentioned, I picked up Spicy Blush for my test subject. Spicy Blush is really pretty light mauve pink. The colour is beautiful mauve pink. Initially, Spicy Blush reminded me of Too Faced Melted lipstick in Peony but Peony is slightly bluer.

The formula is very creamy and opaque. The formula is light weight but I could tell there was something on my lips. It applied beautifully but it TRANSFERRED like crazy everywhere. If my lips had to touch it, there was some Spicy Blush in my wake. On my coffee cup, water bottle, Pepper's head. Even after blotting (which meant you didn't have the full vivacity), it still transferred.
The wear time was typical of a lip gloss. You will need to reapply after eating or drinking. I only got a few hours wear time out of it at any given time.
There are 13 shades available in Canada and 14 in the US. At Shoppers Drug Mart, there were only 8 shades displayed.
I was really looking for the shade Nude Star but it wasn't on display. I don't think I will be tracking it down in any haste. The Lip Paints were okay - just sort of Meh for me and really not worth the $11.49 price tag. The sheer amount this product transferred means I probably won't be reaching for Spicy Blush on a daily basis.
