L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss.

Matte lips continue to be one of the hottest trends so far this year. I am slowly embracing this trend. You can't argue that a great matte lippie offers beautiful long-lasting pigmentation. Brands are doing matte better than ever in new creamy formulations that are easier to wear and more gentle on the lips. L’Oréal Paris has just introduced such a formula that I am really liking in their new Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss, and it may just be my favorite matte yet.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss is a creamy liquid matte lip gloss which is sort of contradicting in name, but in finish it is not. This gloss provides a super smooth, beautiful velvet-matte finish to the lips in full-on gorgeous color — perfect for spring!

What I think I have really come to like about matte glosses like Pro-Matte Gloss, is that a liquid matte formula defines the lips. When a matte finish is combined with a gloss application, the liquid matte formula works to contour and fill the lips. I find that it makes the lips look more full and youthful, actually. This is very opposite of matte lipsticks. With the super creamy texture of the Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss, lips are almost hydrated as the gloss is applied. It simply feels very velvety and it wears comfortably all day without drying out the lips.

There are ten beautiful shades in the line-up with everything from nudes to reds.

Blushing Ambition (300)
Fuchsia Amnesia (302)
Rebel Rose (304)
Aphrodite Kiss (306)
Shanghai Scarlet (308)
Forbidden Kiss (310)
Rouge Envy (312)
Nude Allude (314)
Statement Nude (316)
Bare Attraction (318)

I got to try out five of them. My favorite by far is Blushing Ambition with Bare Attraction coming in a second. I want to pick up the other nude shade, Statement Nude.

L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss sells for $9.99 each at your favorite drugstore or mass retailer like CVS, Target or Walgreens.
