I received the L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick VoxBox from Influenster for free, and it included 2 lipsticks in the shades Cowboy and Milk and Cookies.
First off, I normally do not purchase products from L’Oréal because they are not cruelty-free, but I will still share my honest opinion about these lipsticks if you are interested in purchasing them.
Cowboy is a reddish-brown shade, and Milk and Cookies is a mauve shade. However, the shades look darker when swatched and on the lips than in the tube. I also found the shades a bit too dark for my skin tone, but I do think they would be good for the Fall. Both lipsticks have great pigment, and I only need to use 1 layer. The applicator is teardrop shaped, and I found it easy to use to apply the lipsticks evenly. However, the lipsticks are really sticky after applying them, and after 15 minutes when the lipsticks mostly dry, my lips are still a little sticky. I recommend using a translucent powder on top of the lipsticks to make your lips free of stickiness. Since the lipsticks do not dry completely, they are not drying like most liquid lipsticks, and they also do not have a matte finish (I would say they have more of a semi-matte finish because the lipsticks appear a little glossy). I would still recommend using a lip scrub and moisturizer before applying these lipsticks. The lipsticks are also not completely transfer-proof because they fade a little on the inner lip after eating and drinking. However, the lipsticks are long-lasting, and they lasted through lunch and dinner with only the slight fading on the inner lip. Since these lipsticks are long-lasting, they are difficult to remove with just water or a regular makeup remover. To remove the lipsticks, you need to use a waterproof makeup remover, coconut oil, or another oil based makeup remover. As far as the price goes, I think these lipsticks are affordable and worth the $10 since they are long-lasting and mostly transfer-proof. There are 12 shades available including reds, pinks, and purples, but I will not purchase another shade mainly because L’Oréal is not cruelty-free.
Overall, the L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipsticks are long-lasting and mostly transfer-proof, but they feel sticky on the lips and do not dry completely.
