Worst Matte Lipsticks | L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paint in 209 Nude on Fleek and 212 Nude-ist
L'Oreal Infallible Lip Paint in 209 Nude on Fleek (top) and 212 Nude-Ist (bottom) £6.99 and available from Superdrug.com
This feels weird doing a review on these lip paints after reviewing the lacquer version only a few days ago! I had such high hopes for these liquid lipsticks and was really excited to buy them. I chose two colours that I thought would look really good on me. I think 209 Nude on Fleek did a little but 212 just looked like crap. It was streaky and blotchy on me and really looked like I had dipped my lips in mud....or worse.
The formula for both of these lipsticks was bad. It felt heavy and doesn't dry down like a normal matte liquid lipstick. It kept moving around and smudging whenever I ate or had a drink. It was also quite sticky too; the lacquer lip paint was a tiny bit sticky but didn't feel heavy like this.
Here are the swatches..
Top is 212 Nude-Ist and Bottom is 209 Nude on Fleek
Nude on Fleek is actually a nice colour and really does suit me. When I applied it to my lips it looked alright at first, but like I said earlier, the formula isn't great and it tends to move about on your lips when you eat and drink, or even talk! It is a pity because it was a nice shade, but in the bin it goes!
Nude-Ist is just horrible. It looks great on the bottle but on your lips it looks watered down, icky and blotchy! My husband actually said it looked like watery poo on my lips! Sorry for that image! It just doesn't look anything like the colour on the bottle to me and the formula is like the other lipstick, sticky and heavy. I am tempted to throw this one over the back wall!
Overall I was so disappointed with these lipsticks. I had such high hopes for the mattes after trying the lacquer lip paints and loving those, oh well it serves me right for not checking reviews before buying them. That's £14 down the loo!
Have you tried these? What did you think?
