L’Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Fight For It Shade 109 Review, Swatches: Hey there you lovelies!! I am very rarely a lip gloss person. But I am a woman, and prone to using shopping as a mood enhancer. So, over a weekend trip to get over a bad film I saw, I ended up buying a lot of things – reviews of which you shall read over the next few days. But I must let you know about L’Oreal‘s new offering – the Infallible Mega Gloss – considering a lot of us could be getting all excited about it. I go weak-kneed about a lip gloss ONLY if it is a cream finish. And this one has a good texture. So should you or shouldn’t you pick this up? Read on to decide…

How to Use
• Fill – Fill the applicator with the Mega Gloss Infallible Texture.
• Apply – Apply the lip gloss firstly onto the lower lip, from the centre to the corners. Repeat this on your upper lip, paying extra attention to your cupids bow. This way you will achieve a perfectly shaded effect, leaving the middle of your lips looking more intense and shinier in colour.
• Layer – For an even glossier effect, apply Infallible Lip Top Coat.

In Detail L’Oreal Infallible Mega Gloss Fight For It Shade 109 Review, Swatches and My Experience
The Infallible Mega Gloss looks very classy in its sleek transparent structured tube. The glosses are handy hence can be easily carried around in clutch/handbag. But the best surprise is when you open the wand – for at its end is an applicator with a truly unusual shape.The applicator has a tilted zig-zag shape which ensures proper application and also defines the shape of the lips.
The shade “Fight for it” is a subtle peachy pink bubblegum-like shade which looks gorgeous. It is a perfect mixture of gloss and colour. Lips will dazzle in glossy shine with a good colour pay-off. The shade is very feminine, subtle and great for day-time wear. It adds a very feminine touch to the entire make-up look and is the ideal colour for the summer. It is light enough to be great for a natural/no makeup look or days where you don’t want to wear a bold colour or a lipstick. But because it is a light shade, it won’t cover pigmented lips completely. That being said, it will compliment almost all Indian skin-tones as it won’t wash any complexion out.
The consistency is thick yet buttery and creamy – so it makes the lips appear fuller. It stays true to its claims. It is a bit thick so you need to keep your hair away from it. But despite its creamy texture, it won’t moisturise chapped lips completely although it does give a lot of hydration till the time it stays. It might settle a bit in fine lines since the colour is light but that isn’t really visible.
The gloss does not stay for a really long time, so the ‘infallible’ claim isn’t true! I had expected it to stay longer since the price is higher than other branded glosses – but it stayed for just about 2-3 hours. It gets ripped off partially. So a little disappointing when it comes to the staying power – I think we can get glosses with same benefits at lower prices!
How I Use it
I found I had to blot it once applied but once I did that it stayed put for several hours, even after snacking.
These glosses are comfortable and hydrating, despite being light weight and give semi-opaque colour to the lips. I personally would highly recommend this shade – Fight For It or 109 for daily wear, it is a natural colour for Indian skin.
