Review & Swatchfest: L'Oréal Infallible 6 HR Lip Gloss in Coral Sands

L'Oréal Infallible Lip Gloss in Coral Sands
Peach lipgloss is my kryptonite. I think my mother's fixation with finding the "perfect peach" rubbed off at an early age and, ever since, I've felt compelled to try anything with the signature hue. "But I can tell Mom about it," I justify to myself upon purchase. Doesn't change the fact that I have a dollar store basket full of peach glosses and only two lips to wear them on at a time. Still, sometimes that special peach comes along that knocks your socks off, and L'Oréal's Infallible Lip Gloss in Coral Sands is one of them. 

Coral Sands is less coral and more of an amped up nude with peach shimmer. Although the shimmer particles are indiscernable to both touch and sight, they give the gloss a lovely, almost pearlescent finish. The texture is smooth so it glides on easily and it's only slightly stickier than comparable drugstore glosses like Rimmel's Moisture Renew lip gloss or Revlon's Colorburst Lipgloss. I attribute this to the 6 hour wear claim the gloss promotes. Speaking of, the gloss didn't last 6 hours with its initial shiny finish, but the texture was still there along with a slight sheen. The color is so light that, on my somewhat pigmented lips, I didn't expect to see it past a few hours. Overall, I would say it was visibly undetectable at 4 hours. That's still pretty good for a lip gloss! 

The packaging is standard issue for drugstore glosses, but the wand is a varied doe foot applicator with a pointed tip and more flexibility. I tend to prefer this shape for the prece application it allows for in areas like the outer corners and cupid's bow. Check out the tutorial below to see it in action!

If you are explicitly looking for a lip gloss that is long wearing (specifically, 6 hours), I wouldn't say this is it. If, on the other hand, you want a lovely gloss with extended wear and a smooth, creamy texture, this is a winner! With a drugstore price tag at $8.50, I would liken the quality to the products mentioned above, but with longer wear. Overall, well worth it if you like the shade!
