The Scarlet Season: L’Oreal Plumped Red Infallible Plumping Lipgloss

L’Oreal Plumped Red #306 Infallible Plumping Lipgloss ($9.99) is a sheer, lightly tinted orange-based red lipgloss with “plumping power.” It lightly plumps up lips with just a touch of a tingle, which I didn’t find too bothersome (and I’d say I’m particularly sensitive to lip plumpers and find the majority overwhelming). I wish the color was bolder and more opaque, because it is rather subtle and sheer. It does, however, significantly tint and add redness to my lips, and it wears well, because it has a tendency to stain a little rather than sit on top of lips like a typical gloss. It has the faintest bit of shimmer, but it’s hardly noticeable on lips.

What about you? Would you wear this red?

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

Honestly, after the Le Metier de Beaute raspberry gloss, I’m having a hard time liking any other red glosses. FRAMBOISE CREME is backordered on neimanmarcus.com *cries*. This looks okay for people who wanted to look very natural and subtle but I’d personally go nude for that look.

I actually quite like it. I prefer subtle colours to very opaque, simply because I usually like to reapply my lip products almost every hour (from habit) and I also like to apply different products throughout the day.

Is the colour buildable though? I find that most of my sheerer glosses can be more opaque when applied in a few layers.

Ive found the formula for infallible glosses to be a bit strange, it starts off smooth but sets to a very tacky finish that clumps pretty bad along the inside of my lips. 🙁 I really like the color I have too, its a pretty, shimmery mauve.
