Makeup lovers, I think we all need to take a minute to remember that there are quality products in the drugstore.
I feel as though we get so lost in the world of Sephora that we tend to forget that there are other brands that are more affordable. There’s this stigma with drugstore products that just because it’s affordable, it can’t be good, but that truly isn’t the case. A lot of drugstore brands are coming out products that give flawless results.
With that being said, I want to talk about a major find from the drugstore.
These are the L’Oreal Infallible 8 HR Pro Glosses in Dulce De Leche (Right) and Suede (Left). I’m really surprised that no one is talking about them.
I’ve been on the hunt for some everyday glosses. Something that wasn’t too pigmented, but gave a little something to make my lips pop. These did just the trick.
Here are the swatches with Suede on top and Dulce de Leche on the bottom:
Honestly, the pictures don’t do the actual product justice.
The packaging is beautiful, though I’m a bit annoyed that the name off the product is wearing off even though I’ve had it just under a month.
L’Oreal describes the applicator as a “Petit Coeur” applicator which is a pointed brush with a hole in the center. I love the shape of the brush because the point allows me to easily outline my lips. The hole in the center lets the brush pick up more of the product than it would without one.
The product itself is beautiful. It’s smooth, not too thick and non-sticky. I love that because I’m not worried about my hair getting caught on my lips throughout the day. With that being said, it lasts a fairly long time. I don’t think I can honestly say that it last eight full hours on me since I’m constantly eating and drinking, but with a fair amount of product on the lips, it can last several hours without budging.
Dulce de Leche is a brown-undertone lip gloss. It has flecks of gold glitter, which I thought would look atrocious, but it doesn’t come off as glittery as you would think. It works beautifully to tone down lips that may be a little too nude. It’s one of those colors that you can always keep in your bag to just apply by itself as an everyday gloss.
Suede is a pink gloss with a gold shift. It’s nice to apply overtop nude lipsticks with pink or peach undertones. It gives off a gold highlight in the light and it’s probably my favorite of the two. Unlike Dulce de Leche, this doesn’t have much, if any glitter flecks, which makes me love it just a bit more. Alone, it just gives your lips a gold shine and works for just about any look.
All-in-all, these lip glosses are a must have. I rate them 8 out of 10. If you find them in your local drugstore, definitely go pick them up. You won’t be sorry.
Let me know if you’ve tried them because I’d definitely love to know how they worked out for you. Catch you guys on the next one.
