L'Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Matte lip gloss review

loreal-infallible-lip-gloss-matte-review
As I’ve read a lot of reviews about the L’Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss lip glosses on Latvian blogs, I decided to visit my local drugstore and buy a few of the items, especially the matte ones. I recently wrote a review post about the NYX matte lip creams, so I got to say that it was very interesting to compare the two L’Oreal and NYX products keeping in mind that both of them are made for the same purpose.

LV
Tā kā par jaunajiem L'Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss lūpu spīdumiem biju lasījusi ļoti daudzas atsauksmes pašmāju blogos, tad es  nolēmu doties uz Drogām un nopirkt pāris L'Oreal lūpu spīdumus tieši matētajos toņos! Jāsaka, ka tā kā nesen biju uzrakstījusi atsauksmju rakstu NYX matētajiem lūpu krēmiem, tad bija interesanti salīdzināt L'Oreal un NYX  ņemot vērā, ka abu zīmolu produkti ir paredzēti vienam mērķim un viena matēta efekta sasniegšanai!

I have to be honest and say that I still prefer the NYX lip creams, because they have a much lighter consistency, their scent is amazing (a very important factor - for me at least, haha) and also the matte effect can be achieved in a very short amount of time! Even though, I enjoy the NYX products more, the positive things about the L’Oreal ones cannot go unmentioned. There were a few things that made me happy about the purchase instead of regretting it!

+++
+ A thick and creamy texture that is easy to apply and blend
+ The applicator is very comfortable, so it makes the application a lot easier
+ The longevity of the product is pretty good, it can stay on your lips for about 8 hours with minimal eating and drinking
+ The price: on sale in a Latvian drugstore it cost about five and a half euros

---
- The lip gloss doesn’t completely dry up, so the matte effect cannot be fully achieved ( though you can achieve almost a matte effect by slightly pushing your lips to the tissue after the application process)
- The gloss is a bit synthetic scent
- A small and inconvenient handle
- Limited collection (the drugstore where I bought mine, only had three matte shades left)

Jāatzīst, ka kopumā es vēl joprojām priekšroku dotu tieši NYX lūpu krēmiem, jo tiem ir vieglāka konsistence, patīkamāka smarža ( hehe, man ļoti svarīgs faktors), kā arī matēto lūpu efektu var iegūt ļoti īsā laikā! Bet kaut arī priekšroku es dodu NYX lūpu krēmiem, noteikti ir jāpiemin arī L'Oreal pozitīvās īpašības, kas man lika priecāties par izdarīto pirkumu, nevis to nožēlot!

+++
+ Bieza un krēmīga tekstūra, kas viegli klājas un pludinās
+ Ļoti ērts aplikators, atvieglo lūpu spīduma uzklāšanu
+ Ilga noturība, savas astoņas stundas ( ar minimālu ēšanu un dzeršanu) noturēsies savā vietā
+ Cena: uz atlaidēm Drogās maksāja aptuveni piecarpus eiro

---
- lūpu spīdums līdz galam nenožūst un matētu efektu nevar līdz galam iegūt ( jāpiebilst, ka matēto efektu var iegūt lūpas viegli nosusinot ar salveti!)
- nedaudz sintētiska smarža
- mazs un nedaudz neparocīgs rokturis
- limitēta kolekcijā ( GC Drogās bija palikuši tikai trīs matētie toņi)

L'Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Matte in shade 405 ( The bigger the better)

A bright and juicy pink color, that, in my opinion, looks great in the warmer months! I’m very pleased with the color and the brightness. I recommend it!

Koša un sulīga rozā krāsa, kas, manuprāt, it sevišķi lieliski izskatās gada siltajos mēnešos! Esmu ļoti apmierināta ar krāsu un tās spilgtumu! Iesaku!

L'Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Matte in shade 407 ( Smoke me up)

From the way the lip gloss looked like in the packaging, I would have expected a darker and deeper color that would be more on the purple side. After applying it on my lips, I gathered that the tone of this lip gloss was very similar to the before mentioned (405 one), but the color was a smidge darker and a bit more down-to-earth. Of course, it isn’t worth worrying about it that much because the color is truly beautiful, but I was still expecting something else. I can’t say that I’m too disappointed, but I wouldn’t recommend buying the two glosses at once, because they are alike. Instead of buying both of these, you can always try one of the red shades!

Pēc tā kā lūpu spīdums izskatījās iepakojumā biju gaidījusi nedaudz tumšāku un piesātinātāku toni, kas vairāk atbilstu violetai nokrāsai! Pēc uzklāšanas secināju, ka tonis ir ļoti līdzīgs jau iepriekš pieminētajam 405 tonim, tikai nedaudz tumšākā un piezemētākā nokrāsā! Protams, tas nav nekas slikts, jo krāsa ir patiešām ļoti skaista, vienīgai biju gaidījusi kaut ko savādāku. Bet nevarētu teikt arī ka esmu vīlusies, vienīgais Jums es varbūt neieteiktu pirkt abus spīdumus, jo tie ir ļoti līdzīgi, bet gan drīzāk izmēģināt kādu sarkano toni!

Overall, I am quite happy with the purchase and certainly command L'Oreal for making such a great and affordable product! Would love to try out other shades as well! 

Kopumā, varētu teikt, ka es esmu apmierināta ar šo pirkumu un noteikti apsveicu L'Oreal ar šiem lūpu spīdumiem, kas ir gan kvalitatīvi, gan arī par pievilcīgu cenu! Es noteikti vēlētos izmēģināt arī citus toņus!

~With love~

  7. The both shades look lovely on you... I love those deep red/purple shades alaso so I would probably go for the same ones. Still, I 'm not a huge fan of lip glosses... I realy can't say why so I will probably skip these! :) However, thank you for the review, I always enjoy reading them! xo

    1. Thank you Ivana! I don't quite like glosses either, but I do love how easy it is to apply them - I typically don't use glossy glosses, only the ones that have a matte effect!

    1. These ones are a bit creamier than the NYX ones, therefore, the application process is easier! Even though, I do prefer NYX ones over these ones, I still think these lip glosses are worth the money and the hype!
