L'Oreal Dazzle Me Infallible Lipgloss
L’Oreal Dazzle Me Infallible Lipgloss

A Sparkling, Shimmery Pink of a Gloss

L’Oreal Dazzle Me Infallible Lipgloss ($9.99 MSRP for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with fuchsia and silver shimmer and sparkle. Burberry Hibiscus is similar in color but has no shimmer at all. Bobbi Brown Electric Violet is lighter and has finer shimmer (and less of it). MAC Radiant Jewels is redder with less sparkle. MAC Electric Fuchsia is lighter.

The Infallible Lipgloss formula is supposed to offer eight-hour wear with sheer, luminous color. I wish they wouldn’t make such an extravagant claim, because eight-hours of shiny, glossy wear? is not something you find often, if at all. This shade wears well for five hours, but the glossiness fades after three and a half hours, though the sparkle does not travel. After eight hours, there are still a few bits of shimmer but the color is gone. The texture is thin but incredibly sticky. Dazzle Me is semi-sheer in color with enough sparkle to give lips a good shimmer and shine.

I have such a love/hate relationship with this gloss formula, because the shimmer they use sparkles beautifully, but the thin consistency means you can feel the grit of the sparkle. I noticed the grit of the sparkle less so in this shade than I have in others, and the scent was sweet and fruity but not medicinal (some of them are that way).  It comes with a tapered, angled doe-foot applicator (similar to Lancome’s Color Fever Glosses).

  1. Brrr, you can feel the glitter? That’s not very pleasant.

    I’ve been buying these, I find them to last a long time, well longer than other glosses, no taste or smell and the price right compared to Dept store. I like the applicator too.

    I stayed away from L’oreal lipsticks due to the taste of the Color Riche lipsticks.

    I like this color on you! Did you change something on the setting of your camera? Because your picture looks more amazing than ever! This glow on your cheeks – I want that!!! Is it the Neolita Blush?

  4. I love this on you! I wish it was a bit more opaque but really the sparkle is gorgeous!

  5. Love your eye makeup, Christine! Beautiful!

    Interesting. I have Hibiscus, but I thought it was darker than this, in addition to the lack of shimmer. This is really pretty though, so maybe I’ll pick it up if I see it at the drugstore.

  7. Loooove this entire look on you (also Burberry quad /chinhands). And the lipgloss looks girly without being cloyingly so – I like it.

    You skin has been looking amazing in photos lately! Is it a new skincare product or a new concealer/foundation?

    I love how it’s so bright in the tube but not so in your face on the lips! My CVS had these. I was tempted to buy the set but gained control and stuck to my list.

    I love this whole look! I think I’ll have to go through and try to find dupes for the various products you’re wearing, since I don’t own ANY of them . . . I thought about getting the MUFE Holodiam powder, but didn’t . . . Where are you wearing it? Is it over your eyeliner? Thanks for always putting together such beautiful colors :) You are such an inspiration to keep playing with makeup and colors!

    I really love the color, but I wish it was less shimmery/sparkly.

    I have one of these glosses. I wanted to love it so much, but I can’t stand the scent. The shade I have is a very beautiful mauve. It smells like they tried to cover up the chemical scent that the gloss has with a light vanilla scent. I’m not really sure if it’s vanilla, but either way, it smells awful. I’m not normally a person to complain about the scents of products.

  13. Marie

    I can’t find the limited edition shades anywhere!!

    How long do you think it would last if you wore it and then ate/drank stuff? My problem with glosses is that they get everywhere once you put your mouth on any sort of drink or food (read: beer mostly). It is such a gorgeous color but if it wipes off in 2 seconds after eating, it doesn’t seem worth it to me.

    • It’s pretty tacky – it’s not going to make it through a meal or lots of drinking (whatever your poison may be :)) 100% intact, but it will do so better than other glosses, because it is extremely tacky. For me, I wore it twice, once four and a half hours before eating/drinking, and the second time, only two hours or so before eating/drinking. The first time, just shimmer left (but it was already mostly gone by then), and the second time, just shimmer – more than before, but the color was gone.

  15. You look AMAZING in the full face shot! I mean, you always do, but dang, I can’t close the page because you look so lovely! I need to dupe that eye look! <3

    I know I'm getting BB Electric Violet for Xmas, so I'm trying hard to sit on my hands and not run out and grab this… but geeeeez, you are making it hard! :)

    That’s so pretty! I don’t own/wear a lot of lip glosses, but when I do, I just love for them to be sparkly like that. I am always skeptical when buying L’Oreal based on a lot of the animal testing they do, but I know they’ve recently made changes to that. Do you have any knowledge on how their lip glosses are tested?

    • Hi Sarah,

      I don’t know what testing they do or don’t do on specific products – it’s best to contact the brand or read through their corporate policies. I don’t think they have a break out of what exactly is tested. I would imagine, more or less, that more innovative ingredients are the ones most subject to additional testing – e.g. totally new ingredients, but I’m not sure.

    What a BEAUTIFUL picture – of YOU!
    You look so lit-from-within glowy, happy and twinkly eyed!
    Love the color of the gloss too. It kind of reminds me of Guerlain’s Extrait de Rose lipstick that I’m enamored with.

  18. Alex

    Ahhh what is that green eyeliner on your waterline??? I must have it this instant!

  19. Serena

    You look absolutely stunning in this photo, Christine! Perfect!

    A bit off topic, but I’m really excited to see you wearing Neolita on your cheeks :D How do you like it? Will there be a review soon?

    This gloss looks really beautiful on you :)

  22. too bad it’s not as vibrant as it looks in the tube.

      Lip pencil. Fill in the whole mouth. I like MAC Pro longwear because they’re indelible, and for a full on mouth at night gloss over pencil doesn’t have the monster gooiness of trying to get on top of lipstick. But still very glitter shiny!

      So the hot pink would pop this up, a pale pink would ease it down, lip pencil is a way to mic color and keep the total inventory of Stuff down. After tossing a pile of stinky lipsticks some sanity set in. That was money in the trash, I could have had three Guerlains in the hyper-fancy case for that.

  23. Maya

    This may be a huge thing to ask, but it would be really cool if you showed us how products that make claims on lasting time look after several hours. I know you sometimes to this with products that fail miserably, but I kind of wanted to see how this looked after 8 hours of wear.

  24. Lark

    I love these LE glosses. All of them! I’m hunting for backups. As a Dazzleglass girl, I find these to be a pretty good substitute/ dupe and have been living in the red one for weeks!

    My only problem is that these don’t have any sort of seal on them; In drugstores this means somebosy’s probably been in that tube and ooh gross! Even a paper sticker would avoid the plastic waste, but guarantee me fresh product. Same with Infallible eye shadows.

    Anyway, these work well for me. Everybodies different. A+ on my lips.

  25. Love it! I just ignore the outrageous claims that lip gloss can last any amount of time and make sure I take it with me. The color and shine is so pretty, it makes almost any set of lips look gorgeous.
