How are you doing today? I am here to share the review of another metallic shimmery gloss from my last mini haul. I am amazed to see how it gives a perfect shimmery finish on my lips without looking frosty. Though it does feel sticky after a while, I am becoming a fan of this lovely metallic orange-red gloss, and I look forward to wear it throughout spring and summer. So let’s read more about L’Oreal Paris Infallible 8 HR Pro Gloss Fiery!

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Infallible 8 HR Pro Gloss Fiery:
Fiery comes in the usual transparent plastic tube packaging with a leaf shaped applicator attached to the twist over cap. Unlike Pro Matte, the cap of Pro Gloss range appears glossy black. Overall, I find it pretty user friendly and travel friendly, packaging wise.
The shade, Fiery, appears to be a burning metallic lava orange in the tube, but it appears as a bit soft and metallic orange on my lips with reddish hue. I am really amazed to see the vibrant array of color it delivers on my lips from different angles and under different lights. I have never seen this color in my stash and I am getting addicted to this color and to its lip hugging finish. Oh yes, I love how the gloss hugs my lips nicely without highlighting my lip lines and minor dry patches; but it seems like sitting in the lip lines after several hours.
I see that it does not provide any high-shine or glossy finish, but settles down to a soft toned sheen on lips which resembles more like a liquid lipstick than a gloss. I say so because usually glosses are meant to provide creamy, wet and glossy finish with a bit sticky texture on the lips, but this shade seems a bit different in this aspect. It might feel sticky for initial say 1-2 minutes with high glossy color but after that it sets into a softer, non-sticky & lip-hugging finish. Impressive, huh!
However it again starts to feel a bit sticky after few hours once the glossiness completely turns into a subtle sheen, which can be a deal breaker for many people. It might also be tricky for dry and parched lips. Though it is forgiving enough to let go of my minor lip flaws, but I usually wear it over well scrubbed & hydrated lips. It also provides nearly complete coverage in just 2 swipes; I do need a second swipe for even finish. Surprisingly, despite being a shimmery metallic gloss, it comes up evenly on the lips and is pigmented enough.
This tells its versatile usage for every beauty including with normal-dry lips and medium-light pigmented lips as well. I don’t miss my lip balm or glossy coat as long as the shade stays on my lips; it does not emphasize or aggravate further dryness on my lips, thankfully. I see that it stays on for decent 4-5 hours on my lips with moderate transferring and often fades in patches which requires re-application after meals and water/tea break.
I don’t see 8 hours of staying power, unless I miss my meals or frequent water/tea breaks. I would so love to get it again as I haven’t seen such a color in any brand so far. Hence for this color alone I would like to recommend it to everyone. Other than the sticky factor, I don’t think I have any major concerns with this gloss.
