L’Oreal has been dropping some really good launches in India lately. I have been stopping myself from buying everything and making sensible decisions only hehe. L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm were launched last month in 10 shades. To be honest I am not much into glossy lip products since they have short staying power and I hardly get time to retouch when I am out and about. However being a beauty blogger I had to test new launches and share my thoughts so after looking at few swatches online, I picked 3 shades – Adventurous, Yala Yolo, Wasted.
Introducing Infallible Sexy Balm: The first no compromise life-proof balm, enriched with moisturizing gel balm, provides your delicate lips with 12 hours of irresistible moisture. Formulated in Sheer and Bold finishes to fit every mood and occasion, this uber hydrating gel balm comes in a weightless velvet texture and vibrant pigments for a true kick of colour. No stickiness, just a ton of moisture. Available in sheer and bold profiles.
Packaging – L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm comes in fat crayon packaging which is retractable. The cap represents the color of the shade hence making it easier to spot the shade if you have more than one of these. Bold balms have metallic opaque caps, sheer has translucent colored caps.
Shades – I have picked 3 shades , all 3 are suitable for all skin tones.-
Adventurous – A bright fuchsia
Yale Yolo – Pure Red
Texture & Formula – These balms are of course balmy, very smooth non sticky formula that feels absolutely moisturising on the lips. I love how they glide on effortlessly and feel comfortable. However because of slippery texture , keeping them within the lip lines is a task, best is to use a matching lip liner.
Pigmentation – These Infallible Sexy Balms are extremely pigmented and one swipe is all you need. Finish is even in one stroke and color covers darkness on the lips very well.
Staying Power – This is the only downside. The sexy lip balm doesn’t stay for more than 3 hours on me. Some of the shades do stain your lips.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Sexy Balm is priced at Rs 499, available online
Like the brand has mentioned you can choose from the two ranges – sheer wash of color or bold opaque finish. I love opaque finish since my upper lip is quite dark. The Infallible Sexy Balm offers smooth glossy lips and comfortable formula.
