Packaging of Loreal Paris lip paint:

It comes in color coded tube packaging and it has a black cap with a doe-foot applicator. The applicator brush does not serve the purpose well as the consistency of the product is very thick. No extra outer box or thin film for this lip paint.

2 different variants are  available with the same Tube packaging.
1) LIP PAINT/Matte
2) LIP PAINT/Lacquer

L'Oreal Paris, LIP PAINT Matte King Pink 202 lip application


Quite disappointed with the thick texture, but it is smooth.


It is a bit difficult due to its thick consistency. And the applicator also cannot serve the purpose well because of its thickness.

What is my opinion about L’Oreal Paris, LIP PAINT/Matte King Pink 202?

I had high expectations from Infallible range because the infallible range never disappointed me. For example the infallible foundation is simply awsome. But I did not like the lip paints from this range. Firstly because of its consistency, secondly because it gives a tingling sensation to the lips. Personally, I do not like the product which gives tingling sensation. To sum up following are the pros and cons.


  • Firstly, I only liked the pink shade because it is bright and vibrant.
  • Secondly it makes your lips look plumper.
  • Extremley pigmented lipstick.
  • Stays for 4 to 5 hours on the lips.
  • Leaves a beautiful stain after removal.
  • Gives a smooth creamy finish and full coverage.


  • Disappointed due to its thick texture.
  • It gives a tingling sensation, which some of us might find irritating, It gives the tingling sensation for good 10 – 15 mins.
  • It transfers a lot. Literally transfers on anything and everything that comes in contact with your lips for instance the glasses, cups, etc. And it leaves a thick layer. You can also see in the image below. It is not transfer-proof at all.L'Oreal Paris, LIP PAINT Matte King Pink 202 transfers
  • It is drying on the lips.
  • Heavy on the lips.
  • It might not suit all the skin tones.
  • Not comfortable at all on the lips, the lipstick claim fails here.
  • As mentioned on the lipsticks as matte, they are not at all matte. They have a creamy finish.


It is an average product for me. I would not buy any shades from this range. Because I do not like lip products which give a tingling sensation. I liked the NYX Suede cream lipstick more, then this one. The NYX shade is Pink L*st,  is almost the same but the texture, consistency and lasting power are much better than this.
