L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick Review and Lip Swatches

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Scented Liquid Lipstick

On Ulta Beauty’s website, they describe the Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Liquid Lipsticks as cult-favorite Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick that’s enhanced with an indulgent chocolate aroma, Infallible Pro Matte Liquid Lipstick Les Chocolats scented provides all day full, matte coverage. They’re the long wear liquid lipstick feels light for all day comfort, never sticky. They comes with a pro-sculpt applicator, shape and add dimension to lips. Claims to be Liquid Matte Lipstick, up to 16hr of longwear, chocolate Scented lipstick, and comfortable Wear.

So far, they have came out with six difference shades: Candy Man, Sweet Tooth, Does of Cocoa, Box O Chocolate, Bitter Sweet, and 70% Yum. I have the shades Candy Man, Does of Cocoa and Box O Chocolate; below, please find hand swatches of these three shades:

They’re super pigmented and goes on smoothly with velvety matte finish; when first apply, it does feel somewhat sticky, it takes about 10 minutes to dry down. Once it’s dried down to matte finish, I don’t feel the stickiness anymore. I have tried million liquid lipsticks out there, they’re pretty much the only lip products I wear on a daily basis. These Infallible Pro Matte Les Chocolats Lipsticks are by far the longest lasting ones I’ve tried; they even lasted through my dental teeth cleaning appointment! They indeed lasted from the morning I applied, till end of the day when I removed with Makeup Cleansing Oil. That being said, they do tend to dry out my lips more than other liquid lipsticks; I have to really exfoliate my lips and put lip mask on the night before, if I’m planning on using them for the next day. I now only use them during the weekends, when I know I will be out all day; so that I don’t need to worry about touching up at all.

My favorite shade is Candy Man, here’s the lip swatch on my NC15 skin tone:

I also like how they all smell like delicious chocolate, but not overpowering; the smell goes away after application. I do wish they will come out with more shades in the future; I will be purchasing a lot more.

L’Oreal RevitaLift Intensive Moisturizer Review

Thanks to @lorealusa @LOREALSKIN for sending me this L’Oreal RevitaLift Intensive Moisturizer, Triple Powder Intensive Anti-aging Day Cream to try out. This is a triple power intensive anti-aging day cream Moisturizer that claims to improve our skin in just 14 days. The #RevitaLiftChallenge claims to hydrate the skin and  improve skim texture in 1 week, then reduce wrinkles and firming the skin in 2 weeks; it’s recommended to use day and night for 14 days after cleansing and use sunscreen during the day.

I had been using this as instructed and completed the 14 days challenge. I used it after cleansing and toning during the day, followed up with SPF50; then at night, I used it after makeup removal, cleansing, and toning. I did not use any other skincare products because I wanted to make sure that I see the result only this cream gives. Unfortunately, I did not see result in improving my pores nor skin texture, I don’t have wrinkles yet so I can’t say if it in fact improves wrinkles. As far as firming and appearance go, I did not see big difference in firming, but it did soften my skin overnight. And, it did hydrate my skin and kept it moisturized the entire night and day; perhaps I need to continue using it longer to see greater result. You only need a tiny bit for entire face, using too much might cause break-outs because it can get very heavy. It has Parfum/Fragrance as one of the ingredients, but it’s very light as it appears at the end of the list; it did not cause any allergic reaction to my skin, I also like the fresh smell of the cream. However, if you’re sensitive to Parfum/Fragrance, you might want to avoid this. I recommend this for Dry Skin Type; so far for me, it’s a nice moisturized cream for my Normal to Combo skin, when using it with thin layer.
