Infallable, Indeed

I read somewhere that Christina Aguilera reapplied her lip gloss 30 times during dinner recently. Girlfriend obviously wasn't wearing my newest find, L'Oreal's Infallible Never Fail LipGloss. I picked up this little gem recently after hearing about Clinique's Long Last Gloss Wear, wondering how well the whole idea really worked. Now, I haven't tried out Clinique's product yet, but I have been testing L'Oreal's gloss.

First of all, the gloss itself does stay on quite a long time. I'm not getting the promised six hours out of it, but I'm certainly getting four. It lasts through light snacks, coffee, and a small amount of kissing (pull those minds up out of the gutter - children need a kiss or two while you're sending them off to summer camp, don't they?). It will come off, though, so I wouldn't call it a stain, but it's lasting power far surpasses that of any gloss I've ever used before.

The downside of the product is that it's a bit dry, in comparason to other glosses. This is to be expected, however, given the fact that it's supposed to be a long wearing product. It just takes a bit of getting used to. And the wand kind of freaks me out - it's a heart-shaped sponge wand, but it's kind of...I don't know. Floppy? It moves around a lot. I think the heart shape is great for getting the contours of your lips, but a little firmness in the sponge never hurt anyone. It just looks kind of weird and takes some time to learn to manage well.

You can find this gloss at just about every major retailer. I got mine at Target. I'm sure Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, and has it too. Amazon does not currently have it in stock.
