My Opinion on the L’Oreal Infallible Sheer Sexy Balm

Crayons crayons and crayons, I use to love them since childhood in the drawing class and now at the dressing table. Bad Joke. Lip Crayons are not only fancy, but handy and easy to use. Recently when L’Oreal got the Infallible Sexy Balms, I was intrigued. L’Oreal and Maybelline are my favorite brands and I don’t leave any chance to not test or use them. Well most of them.
Previously in my Tint Caresses post too I showed you the lovely array of colors. This post is also about different shades of the Sheer Sexy Balm range.


Did you notice the price tag for a L’Oreal Lip Product, under 500? So in order to bring it closer to the mass, the packaging is kept minimal. It is a black glossy body with a color coded see through cap. The cap doesn’t shut with a click lock. <<Alarm, be cautious if you carry it in the bag>> The shade name and range is mentioned on a color coded sticker stuck to the base.


As the name suggests its balm like  soft and sheer. The formula is comfortable buttery everyday lip balm like. Best suited for daily wear. The pigment doesn’t stay for long. The lips appear healthy and plump. Mine are thin lips, so the volume and plump it gives is what I adore.


101 We wear Pink – this hade is almost transparent. It is best used for adding gloss to the natural bare lips. It can also be used over a lipstick to make it matte.
103 As if I-This is an out and out nude shade with hints of rosy pink. I like this shade a lot for daily wear.
106 Clueless- This has hints of neon pink but quite sheer.
109 Such a Babe- an orange shade, makes the lips juicy. The shade is attractive and appears perfect for changing the otherwise monotonous pink lips look. The second most pigmented shade.
111 Go Pretty or Go Home- A mauvy pink decently pigmented. Definitely the most pigmented shade out of the lot.


The shades are moderately pigmented just like a tinted lip balm. It would be wrong to call them lipsticks. The shades are sheer, but you can layer them upp 2-3 swipes to build the color. Layering doesn’t lead to smudging, but it should be to a limit.
The L’Oreal Infallible Sheer Sexy Balm stays on my lips for a maximum of 2 hours. It is quite understood and known that it wont last long. I reapply it as it feels like a lip balm. Best for the casual laidback days. The lips feel hydrated and just a tint of color to take away the dullness out of the face. I carry it on the go and re-apply it when needed. It color gets easily transferred.
