L'Oréal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm 103 As If Review & Swatches

By Tuesday, August 16, 2016 , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing the newly launched L'Oréal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm. Sexy Balms comes in two finishes sheer and bold. Sheer range has 5 shades in it (102 Goosip, 103 As If, 104 Break the rules, 109 Such a babe, 111 Go pretty or go home) and the Bold range has three shades (202 Adventure, 203 Yala Yolo, 204 Never Stop). I usually gravitate towards nude shades so I picked up 103 As If from the sheer range. Let’s see how this one fared out.

Product Description: L'Oréal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm - Highly pigmented and moisturising lipstick for every occasion. Bring it with you wherever you go, once you've tested it there's no going back! Enriched with a moisturising gel balm, it keeps your lips soft and smooth for up to 12 hours, and with amazing colour! For soft and beautiful lips, anytime, anywhere.

  • Highly pigmented and moisturising.
  • Moisturises for up to 12 hours.
  • No sticky feeling

Price: 8 USD/ 6.99€

Packaging: It comes in a twist up black plastic body with a colour coded transparent plastic cap.

Performance: L'Oréal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm 103 As If is a perfect pinky nude shade with slight brown undertone. It is from the sheer range but still the colour payoff is pretty good. Really creamy and buttery smooth in texture and applies like a dream on your lips. Finish of this is very glossy and makes your lip looks very juicy and hydrated. It instantly smoothen your lips no matter how dry or flaky they are and it doesn't settle into the lip lines or accentuate them. Is very moisturising on the lips and the best part is it doesn’t feel heavy on the lips and is not at all sticky. Staying power is around 2-3 hours, glossy effect starts to fade off after an hour or so but the moisturising effect lasts even after the colour wears off. It cannot withstand a meal and wears of a bit while drinking. These are scented so if you do not like fragrance in your lipsticks then this might not be for you.

The Good:
  • Available in 8 shades
  • Easy to use
  • Creamy and smooth
  • Very Moisturising
  • Lovely shade
  • Doesn't settle into fine lines.
  • Non sticky
  • Affordable
The Bad:
  • Fragrance might be a concern for some.
Sheer range is great for daily wear. Just slap it on and you are good to go. These are very moisturising and doesn’t feel heavy or sticky. You have to reapply it throughout the day so if you don’t mind that then you should definitely try these out. I really like it and would pick up more shades from this range.

Hope you liked this post!!
