Hot Or Not Wednesday - L'Oreal Infallible Matte Max Lipstick

Hi everyone,
It's Wednesday, which means another hot or not! If you read my haul that went up the other day (linked here) you will know that I bought a few things from L'Oreal. Since the L'Oreal infallible matte max lipsticks had just been released, I wanted to pick one up and give you a mini review before you consider buying it. Enjoy!

The original price of this is £6.99, which I think is pretty good because you get the product and an applicator in one with sturdy packaging.

First impression:
When I first applied it, I thought it was very easy to apply and it felt like nothing on my lips.

I really like the packaging! I like how the colour of the lip colour is displayed on the out side and it is not too big either. It is very sleek and looks very high end when really it isn't

How do you use it?
When you open the product you just dip the taped sponge into the product held in the lid and put it straight onto your lips like any other lipstick.

What does it do?
This is meant to be a super matte lip colour and if you have a few shades you can also create an ombre lip.

Which are my favorites?
Since I only have one shade I can't really give a fair answer but this was the only nude colour I could find but they also had some pinks, reds and maybe a purple.

What are the negatives?
- Not as long lasting as others
- Quit drying

What are the positives?
- Affordable
- Easy to apply
- Shades to suit everyone
- Super matte finish
- Light weight
- Pigmented

Would I recommend it? And to who?
I would recommend this to everyone. If you like matte lips and you can find a shade you like, then why not? They are super easy to apply so even a beginner could use this.

Hot or Not?
Hot! There is another shade I have my eye which I will probably pick up soon, but I love this product. I think it is so perfect for on the go and even though it might not last through a meal, for everyday it works great.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Comment below whether this would be something you would try. Have a great day!

  1. I really want to try out some of the new L'Oreal range as it looks and sounds amazing!

    1. Same! I only really picked up this from the new range but I will have to try more out!

  2. These do look great!

  3. I love matte lips but the thing that put me off about it was on the loreal instagram it looked really shiney.

    1. That's strange because they are super matte. I find them to look a lot more matte than the Mac lipsticks as I find that they can sometimes have a sheen to them.

  4. These look so nice, tempted to pick some up when I go shopping! x

  6. I have the same one too, in Silencio. I do find it quite drying, yet I always apply lip balm and sometimes lip primer before lipstick :)
