MY TAKE ON LOREAL PARIS INFALLIBLE SEXY BALM
Packaging: The lipsticks come in a retractable crayon form with press-to-close color-coded lid. I like the fact that bold shades have an opaque shiny lid whereas sheer ones have translucent lid.
Texture: The Lipsticks are actually non-sticky lip balms with a hint of color- The bold shades are very pigmented whereas sheer ones give a lip bitten look. They glide on like butter on the lips and feels moisturizing.
Shade: There are a total of 10 shades out of which 4 are ‘Bold’ and 6 are ‘Sheer’. Below is a summary on each-
Yala Yolo (Bold)- This is a very pretty and proper red shade which is highly pigmented and shiny. Red is one such shade that goes well with all skin tones and this cannot be an exception.
Adventure (Bold)- This is a bright fuchsia shade and will suit light to medium skin tones.
Never Stop (Bold)- This is a pigmented coral-neon shade and will suit light to medium skin tones.
Wasted (Bold)- This is the darkest shade in this range! This is a highly pigmented berry shade and will suit all skin tones.
We Wear Pink (Sheer)- This is a transparent gloss just like any other transparent lip balm and shows no color at all. This is the lightest shade in this range. You can also use it as a top coat on your matte lipsticks to add a bit of shine.
As If I (Sheer)- This is a proper mauve shade but as the finish is sheer, it looks very natural on the lips. It does not show up a lot of color on medium skin tones but it makes your lips look plump and healthy. This is my favorite shade from the range.
Clueless (Sheer)- This is a baby pink shade and gives your lips a natural pink flush.
Go Pretty Or Go Home (Sheer)- This is a proper purple shade but looks sheer pink on the lips.
Cant Sit With Us (Sheer)- This is a reddish pink shade that gives your lips a just bitten look. Another favorite from the range.
Such A Babe: This is an orange shade that gives your lips a hint or orange shade.
Fragrance: All the lipsticks smell sweet and I love it!
How I use and staying power: To use, simply swipe it once on the lips if you are using the ‘Bold’ variant and multiple times if you are using ‘Sheer’ variant in order to build up some color.
I am happy with the fact that you get both ‘Bold’ and ‘sheer’ shades in this range. Bold shades are highly pigmented and feel like some pigmented lip gloss on the lips while sheer shades go on light on the lips with that subtle shine making your lips look healthy and plump. Bold shades have 100% coverage while sheer lipsticks not not have much coverage but it does cover imperfections and give your lips a healthy shine and a hint of color. The lipsticks are very moisturizing and feel super comfortable on the lips. It has no tacky sticky feeling and keeps lips soft and repairs chapped lips too just like a lip balm. The only complaint I have about these lipsticks is that they transfer readily and won’t survive even a single meal. Bold shades might bleed if you have heavy meal and fade completely from the center of your lips. In that case, sheer lipsticks is what I prefer since they don’t at least look tacky and can be reapplied quickly.
