My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Paint Matte 203 Tangerine Vertigo:

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Lip Paint Matte has a total of 6 shades in the matte range. There are shades of pinks, reds, corals, purples and nudes in this collection. In this range, I picked the shade “Tangerine vertigo” as I wanted something summery and bright along with a matte finish.

Packaging: The infallible lip paint comes packed in a colour-coded tube like packaging. Thus, it becomes easier to spot the shade just by looking at the colour of the tube. There is a doe-foot shaped applicator that comes attached with the black cap of this tube. This applicator has a slanting tip which helps to line and colour the lips perfectly without any unevenness. The applicator picks decent amount of product in a single dip and I found it quite useful while applying this lipstick.

The tube has a frosted finish to it. The shade name and ingredient details are mentioned on the back of the tube neatly. Overall, the packaging is very sleek and lightweight and can be carried around easily. I am impressed with the cute and adorable packaging of this range.

Shade: The shade “203 Tangerine Vertigo” is a bright and gorgeous warm-toned deep orange shade with very slight red undertones to it. This shade is very well suited for Indian beauties. The colour is neither very dull nor very fluorescent. This will go with every skin tone perfectly. It can be worn as an everyday wear shade and also for parties/weddings. Just put on this shade and it will change your entire look. I was quite sceptical about picking this shade before as I thought this might look quite bold on me. But when I applied it, I found it quite wearable and I fell in love with it. It actually looked quite flattering on my skin tone.

Pigmentation: This lip paint is decently pigmented and offers sheer finish in 1-2 swipes. It needs multiple swipes for fully opaque coverage and to get the maximum colour payoff. On my lips, I apply 3-4 coats to even out the edges and obtain the maximum colour payoff. It will not hide lip pigmentation completely which is a drawback of this lip paint. The pigmentation is not that awesome as a ‘matte’ lipstick which has disappointed me a little bit. It could have been much better at this price point.

This lip paint smells of classic fruity flavour. However, the scent is not too strong nor too mild. After applying this lipstick, it stays for sometime after which it gradually fades away.

Texture and Finish: Coming to the texture of this lip paint, I feel that it is quite smooth and creamy which can be applied on the lips without any pulling and dragging. The finish of this lip paint is not completely matte as per the product description. It settles to a velvety matte smooth finish with subtle shine which looks gorgeous. It is non-drying kind of matte but feels quite comfortable on the lips. The formula is also lightweight and easy to wear.

The best part of this lipstick is that it works perfectly even on dry lips and you don’t have to use a lip balm underneath. It delivers a moisturising feel to the lips and makes them look hydrated and healthy. You can skip the lip exfoliation part with these lip paints. It does not highlight the fine lines of the lips unlike other liquid lipsticks.

As this shade is quite dark, it leaves a prominent stain after fading away. This lipstick is not waterproof and smudgeproof. It does have the tendency to get transferred on coming in contact with objects. This definitely is a drawback of this range. Overall, these lipsticks are not really matte, but if you want something which gives velvety matte finish with subtle shine and hydration, this will be a good range for you to splurge on.

Staying Power: The longevity of this lip paint is about 4-5 hours on my lips. It can survive normal meals with minor changes in the colour intensity. With oily meals, it gets faded off completely and has to be reapplied again. But, this is not troublesome since it is easy to work with this formulation. The wear time of these lipsticks can be increased if you do not smack your lips much and avoid food or drinks in between. You can reduce the subtle shine of this lippie and make it look more matte by putting a blotting paper on your lips and dabbing some loose powder over it. This will also enhance the longevity period.

Removal of this lipstick is also very easy. It gets removed easily using the Garnier Micellar water or any other makeup remover.

Overall: I had high hopes from this product but it failed in fulfilling that. This lip paint is a decent purchase, but it will not be a good choice for you if you are a die-hard matte lipstick lover. It will definitely not be my first choice as a matte lipstick, so I will not buy it again.
