If you’re subscribed to my YouTube videos or follow my Instagram, you’re probably familiar with my preference for glossy or velvety lippies over matte. It’s partly because I’m a K-beauty fan, and partly because my experience with matte lipstick is that it can make lips look dry and crusty up close. That is, until I tried the first whipped matte liquid lipstick of L’Oreal Paris.
This pro-matte sensation is poised to change the liquid lipstick game with its 3D Matte Technology. It glides easily like lip gloss and finishes into a comfortable all-day soft matte finish that promises never to dry your lips. Looks like we can say goodbye to matte lips that only look good from afar!
L’Oreal Paris Philippines sent me this set of five high-impact shades of MLBB (my lips but better) nudes, classic red, and night-out plum, curated for Filipina skin tones. Each one has a matching 6HR Infallible Lip Liner to line the contours, define the pout, and make kissable lips last longer. Gorgeous!
L’Oreal Infallible Pro-matte Liquid Lipsticks: Swatchfest
Trivia #1: This is actually my first time to ever do swatches, for some reason. Haha! I’ve been writing beauty for magazines since 2007 and blogging about makeup since 2012 so I’m not really sure why but here y’all go:
Swatches from left to right. L’Oreal Infallible Pro-matte Liquid Lipsticks: Bare Attraction, Statement Nude, Nude Allude, Rouge Envy, and Forbidden Kiss. L’Oreal 6HR Infallible Lip Liners: Nude, Coral, Mauve, Wine, and Plum.
How it looks on my lips: Nude Allude
Trivia #2: I only started using lipsticks on the regular about three years ago. Before that, the only times I would wear anything on my lips were when someone else did my makeup, or when I had to do makeup reviews/tutorials. So if you see old-school OOTDs of me with nude lips, they’re literally nude. Haha.
Speaking of nude, the three MLBB shades of L’Oreal Infallible Pro-matte Liquid Lipsticks are so pretty! This one is Nude Allude, which I used with Mauve Liner.
Nude Allude has the perfect balance of the warm, pinkish, soft brown shade that can be a staple for your every day look.
How it looks on my lips: Statement Nude
If you want a shade that’s closer to your natural lip color, Statement Nude is a deeper shade.
I used it here with Coral Liner.
Statement Nude has a warm red hue that looks really cute! Then again, I’m partial to coral lipstick.
How it looks on my lips: Bare Attraction
Trivia #3: I’m not sure how comfortable I am with nude lippies. It’s often weird seeing it on myself! I see a lot of people pulling it off so effortlessly, but I feel like light nudes seem to make my lips even fuller than they are.
Or maybe it just takes some getting used to? I’ve said in the past that I find deep red lippies weird on myself but I like wearing berry lipstick now… Anyway, I used Bare Attraction here with Nude Liner.
All three make for lovely daytime looks! Which one’s your favorite Nude shade?
How it looks on my lips: Rouge Envy
For night-outs, the new collection of L’Oreal Infallible Pro-matte Liquid Lipsticks include two intense shades with the same non-drying, all-day soft matte finish.
Rogue Envy with Red Wine Liner. It’s a classic red shade in a cool hue.
Trivia #4: It’s because of makeup that I saw how important it is to know whether you’ve got a warm or cool undertone (mine is cool). It’s so much easier to pick which colors to wear—not just makeup but also hair, nail polish, and of course, clothes!
How it looks on my lips: Forbidden Kiss
Forbidden Kiss is a deep plum shade that’s guaranteed to make heads turn.
I used it here with Plum Liner. Such a rich, bold shade!
Trivia #5: When I’m too lazy to do full-face makeup, this is my one-step makeup hack. A shade like Forbidden Kiss makes for an instant sultry makeup look.
Bonus: Gradient lips using L’Oreal Infallible Pro-matte Liquid Lipsticks
Of course I’m gonna do a sweet makeup look in my comfort zone that is K-beauty! I used Forbidden Kiss in the center, Bare Attraction towards the outer parts of the lips, and Nude Liner, then smudged with my pinky finger.
It’s the same pair I used for my Instagram post below. Check out the unique pro-sculpt applicator on the third photo of the slideshow! It makes it easier to shape the lips for a never-fail matte lip look in a jiffy.
Winner of my #KissableWithInfallible will be announced via Instagram! Make sure you’ve turned on post notifications.
