L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm | Swatches & Review | Indian skintone

L’Oreal recently had new launches back to back. First the Le Matte Lip Pens & then these. I went crazy and picked up 2 shades from each range. I wasn’t really expecting much from the Sexy Balms because the shade range is limited and I had no idea about the formula. I simply bought these because I was carried away! (honest confession) Let’s dive together into the review to find out more about L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm.

L'Oreal Infallible Sexy Balm

Price: Rs.499 for 3.39g.

Availability: I got mine from Nykaa. Not sure if these are available at L’Oreal counters yet.

Shades: There are total 10 shades with 5 sheer ones and 5 Bold ones. I got Never Stop (bold) & As If (sheer).

Never stop is a bright coral pink shade which looks a nice pink on my pigmented lips whereas As If is a sheer nude brown.

Packaging: These come in a twist up packaging and colour coded caps. Bold ones have opaque caps while sheer ones have see-through caps.

Texture: L’Oreal Infallible Sexy Balm has a very very creamy texture. Because of the creamy texture, it becomes a little bit difficult to get an even finish. There’s no need of even moisturizing the lips before applying these. The Sexy Balms apply very very glossy.

Up: Never Stop (bold) Down: As If (sheer)

Pigmentation: The sheer one As If is just like a tinted lip balm providing sheer coverage. Also, the shade will suit those having pinky lips. For people like me, with pigmented lips, this wouldn’t suit much. Anyhow, I still like it. The bold shade Never Stop has better pigmentation, although it doesn’t give an opaque finish. But the colour payoff is quite noticeable.

Staying power: The bold shade stays on for good 4 hours and gradually loses its shine. Also, it feels slightly drying and accentuates the dry patches when worn for long. While the sheer shade stays for hardly 3 hours and doesn’t get dry. (because it fades away before it can dry!). Both of these do transfer and fade significantly after a meal.

My verdict on L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm:

These are perfect for a day when you need a change from drying liquid lipsticks. I reach out for the Sexy Balms especially on weekends (because I prefer matte lipsticks for daily office wear). These moisturize my lips and provide a decent colour payoff. For me, these aren’t that expensive and are completely worth the price. (especially the bold ones). But I wouldn’t be purchasing more shades as I am not highly impressed with the current shade range.
