L'Oreal Pretty Precious Infallible Lipgloss
L’Oreal Pretty Precious Infallible Lipgloss

A Sparkling Beige Best for Layering

L’Oreal Pretty Precious Infallible Lipgloss ($9.99 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a soft pink-beige with white and silver shimmer and sparkle. Bobbi Brown Firefly has pink iridescence. NARS Albatross/ has gold shimmer instead of silver. MAC Jana has gold sparkle.

It’s a rather subtle gloss on, and while it can be worn alone, it is a nice way to add a layer of sparkle to your favorite lip color. It will work well with berries and pinks. On my lips, it’s semi-sheer; it lightens my natural lip color by adding a ton of white/silver shimmer. Pretty Precious┬álasted four and a half hours on my lips when I wore it, which was above average for a gloss in this kind of color/sheerness–just keep in mind that L’Oreal says you’ll get eight-hour wear.

The Infallible Lipgloss formula is thin, tacky, and a little drying. The way the sparkles catch the light is what makes these glosses really lovely to look at, though I’m not a fan of the overall way they feel and wear. The thinner texture means the sparkle feels gritty on the lips. I wish the scent was more pleasing; it’s a medicinal but sweet, fruity aroma that does linger a bit.

I think these look spectacular on; the way the shimmer sparkles and catches the light is really lovely. The wear isn't as long as advertised, but it wears longer than most glosses. The grit of the sparkle, combined with the thin, sticky, and slightly drying texture, make it hard to love.

    Guh, another Loreal gloss I would want if not for the lame formula.

    I know what you mean about the texture! These are easily one of the most uncomfortable glosses I’ve ever worn. I don’t mind tackiness if the gloss has a thicker texture, like MAC’s lipglasses, because that seems to make them feel a bit cushier. But thin and sticky? No thanks!

    It’s really too bad, because they’re SO pretty :( But when it comes down to it, I’d really rather just spend the extra money on a MAC Dazzleglass or Bobbi Brown High Shimmer gloss for the added comfort.

      I can’t stand the texture either. Not worth 9 dollars.. the Covergirl wetslicks crystals are incredibly smooth and smell like vanilla cupcakes <3

  3. I’ve always been curious about these, still not too sure about the wand though

  4. Lizz

    This is so pretty, I need to pick a few of these up :D

  5. Doesn’t leave me hot or cold, really. But maybe that’s because I just tried this super fab lipstick today! *mysterious grin* :-)

    I just realized these are an 8-hour formula, as opposed to the 6-hour ones I have, which can be the reason for the “medicinal” scent. This shade is too similar to Petal, which is one of my favorite, so I’ll pass for now.

  7. This just makes me want to go buy a Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipgloss! Similar effect, more comfortable wear :)

  8. Meh. This is just too subtle for me. I feel like I need more to complete a look, even if it’s just a light makeup for something casual, I’d rather just choose a muted rose lipstick. This is almost a naked lip to me, lol.
