L'Oreal Infallible 6HR Never Fail Lipgloss review

I've had these waiting for a review for awhile and am just finally getting to them! L'Oreal Infallible 6 hour Never Fail Lipgloss has been out a little while but I only recently decided to give it a try. I picked up 3 shades: Plumped Pink, Posy and Rebel Red.

Now the first thing I have to point out is that to me the thought of a 6 hour lip gloss is a little absurd. Gloss is known for wearing off and needing reapplied and I'm not gonna lie, I don't mind.

Now when I pull the wand out of the tube this is what I'm greeted with:
Maybe I'm pervy or it really does resemble...nope...gonna keep my mouth shut lol! (but my husband just came up behind me and agreed without me saying anything!) This applicator is kinda large and clumsy. Not such a big deal for the pale shades for the for the red? What a pain. These also have two formulas supposedly, the normal one (Posy and Rebel Red) and a red cap one (Plumped Pink) which is supposedly a plumping formula but I can tell no difference in anything but the packaging. Also, the caps are supposed to have a "mirror" at the top but it's just a shiny cap and too small to really see in anyways.

The texture of these is disgusting. When first applied it isn't so bad, just sticky. Not like a MAC lipglass (which I also dislike but is standable) but just...sticky. The shine is pretty good, nothing grand but for everyday wear it is perfect. Once it "sets" though it is worse, sticky and "gummy" My lips stick together and the shine dulls down very quickly. I feel like when you blow a bubble in your gum and it pops and sticks to your lips. Ugh, gross.

As for 6 hour wear...what a bunch of bull. This is gross and gummy within 5 minutes, the longest it lasts is about an hour if I can stand it. If you try to wipe these off after application with something like a tissue be prepared for it to stick horribly to your lips. Also, with Rebel Red the shade you see in the swatch is when it is first applied, if it only looked that good after 5 minutes. The shade doesn't just sheer down it becomes uneven and blotchy (and don't forget the shine disappears!). Blech, big disappointment.

Here are my swatches, these are all freshly applied. Don't let their looks deceive you: stay away from these! They sell for around $10 in drugstores and for that price you can find wayyyy better drug store glosses or for a couple dollars go for a high end gloss. I never use these because I feel like I have to reapply more than usual to keep from the gummy texture and they just aren't worth the trouble.

Yep. Female genitalia! And to further the uncouth comments: are we surprised that what comes out of it is sticky and gets stickier with time?

looks like a lancome applicator too.

Darn, I was even going to go out and buy one of these...not anymore.

@ Skulda- lmao, I wonder if they've thought of that in the marketing department!

@Justine- I've never used Lancome, I'll have to check it out.

@Jo- At least I'm saving you some cash on this one, they are so pricey but I still wish I liked them :(
