L'Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss Lip Glosses - my new favourite glosses!

Now, L'Oreal's Infallible Mega Gloss Lip Glosses have been out for a couple of months already and I bought one when they launched but of course couldn't find it for today's post, so I'm guessing it's on my desk at work, but I'll show it to you soon!  I was sent three of the twenty shades on offer to test out a few weeks ago and the verdict is in.

The twenty shades are broken up into five categories, so if you can't find a finish you like, then you will never be happy in life.  Just kidding!  There are three creams, five dazzles, four neons, four mattes and four extreme and you can absolutely layer some on top of others for an extra bit of pizzaz.

The wand has one of those bent doe foot applications with a little well that picks up enough product to apply a decent layer on the lips and I'm able to get a nice crisp line with the very tip of the wand.  Let's do a little close up shot of the three shades and then we'll have the chats about each one.

These lip glosses are some of the most comfortable I've ever worn and as a gloss fiend, this says a lot.  They have hyaluronic acid which helps hydrate the lips and coming into the colder months, this is always high on my list when it comes up lip products.  The top two shades have fantastic shine and none of the colours are sticky or gloopy.  They're a bloody joy to wear.

Disco Ball

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Mega Gloss Lip Glosses - Disco Ball
Now Disco Ball isn't one that I'd wear too often on it's own as it's a tad too frosty for me, but over a really pigmented shade, even like The Bigger The Better which you'll see below, it adds fantastic shine.  But in the photo above, I think the 80s are calling me and I'm afraid if I listen to them that I'll end up with frosty blue eyeshadow on my lids!  It's the lightest of the five Dazzle shades and I'd be interested in checking out the darker ones, for the blog and all... Ahem...

Sayonara Sunset

Sayonara is one of the neons and it's actually less scary on the lips than in the tube.  It's a gorgeous coraly pink that's really flattering and wearable and even though it looks crazy bright, I think this is one I'll get the most wear out of!  It's totally office appropriate, is a shade I can apply when walking along the street trying not to fall and without a mirror and I love it.

The Bigger The Better

Now, The Bigger The Better absolutely terrified me to my very neutral lip loving core when I applied that first swipe, but as I continued to fill my lips in, I fell in the ultimate love with it.  Yes it's a matte shade but it's the least drying matte I've ever used and it feels like velvet on the lips.  The pigmentation is on the extreme level and it never fully dries, so be aware that it might move around on the lips, but that still hasn't stopped me from wanting to try out the nude shade, Amen, and a fab reddy orange, Rasputine Me, when I allow myself to enter the shops again!  I found that this shade started to fade around the 3-4 hour mark, presumably quicker if I was eating or drinking, but left my lips evenly stained and without highlighting any dry bits.  Fans of bright lips had better sit up and take note!

These retail at €11.99 but there are always offers on in Boots.  And you best believe if I see them on 3 for 2, I'll be picking up three more because I love em!
