Sunday Swatches: L'Oreal Infallible Matte Max Lip Pens

Sunday, 14 February 2016

Following the last Sunday Swatches post (here), I thought I'd show you the Matte Max Lip Pens/Pencils; they actually look like they're eyeshadows as the packaging and sponge applicator tip with powdery product looks very eyeshadow-esque.

I actually quite like the texture and feel of these pens; probably the most comfortable feeling matte lip product I've tried!

Packaging: As aforementioned, the packaging would make you think this was an eyeshadow product, however it's quite a clever design for the intention of an ombre lip function and works well to softly add colour.
Colour & Pigmentation: It's quite a sheer colour payoff, but you can build up to however opaque you need.
Texture: A very odd texture, these are almost like powdery texture but with enough moisture/oil to not feel like you've just powdered your lips. Feels like nothing is on almost.
Longevity: The more vibrant of the bunch (Oops I Pink It Again, Disturbia, Say My Name and I Gotta Feeling) leave a slight stain which helps with longevity.
Price: £6.99 at Boots (currently 2 for £12).

FrootiFactor: I actually love that I can't feel the product on my lips, although they do need topping up after eating. Silencio despite being the lightest shade and not my usual colour of choice, is actually my favourite. I Gotta Feeling and Virgin seemed a bit patchier than the others. Aside from this, I'd still give the lippies a 4 out of 5 because of the comfortability and surprisingly good pigmentation for a powdery lippie 

The full L'Oreal Infallible Sculpt Collection is available from February/March this year, the Contouring Palette is already available at Boots and Superdrug seem to stock most of the range already.
