Here is the review of one more shade from the “Infallible Mega Gloss” range by L’Oreal. “Flash Dance” reminds me of the good old days when I started playing with makeup and glosses generally meant the shimmery ones. Read on to know more about the shade “Flash Dance.”
Our “no compromise” gloss is here. The formula is enriched with hyaluronic acid and shine colour pigments, leaving lips hydrated with a high level of shine. Enjoy a glossy look, without stickiness. The lip shaper applicator contours and hugs lips for a perfect glossy pout, all day.
My Experience with L’Oreal Paris 208 Flash Dance Dazzle Infallible Mega Gloss:
This lip gloss comes in a regular gloss packaging, which is transparent; hence you can see the color through the tube. The smart shiny black cap adds to the simple gorgeousness of the packaging. The applicator sponge is pretty unique in shape and one dip is enough to cover the lips as the sponge has a reservoir kind of a thing in the middle where the color gets stored. The tip of the sponge is pointed; hence it is easy to reach the corners and add definition to the Cupid’s bow. Overall, the lip gloss has a smart and classy packaging.
The texture of the lip gloss is more like a lip gel, in my opinion. The good thing about this gloss is that it is absolutely non sticky and yet imparts a good dose of moisture to the lips. This shade has medium to buildable pigmentation, so if you want full coverage and longer stay, then go for a lip liner beneath.
The shade “Flash Dance” is a mix of pink and brick with loads of golden shimmer. It is definitely not a regular wear shade and would suit mature women more. I like pairing it with kohl eyes and peach blush. The shade is very gorgeous and pairs best with ethnic wear. I am not a big fan of such shimmery glosses but if you like sporting the glam look, you can go for it.
The staying power depends on the food/fluid intake and also on the base on which it is applied. Without any base, it stays on my lips for 2-3 hours after which it starts to fade and shimmer stays back, which is not cool. I hate shimmers travelling all over the face, or even sticking on the lips for that matter. For me, the shimmers should also vanish with the lip color. It is a big NO for me. At this price range, we deserve something better L’Oreal!
