I have been obsessed with the L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows for quite some time now. If you haven’t heard of them or tried them, I suggest buying one immediately. Seriously.
They are (in my opinion) the BEST drugstore eyeshadows, and I would even go so far as to say that they trump even some of the most expensive and prestigious eyeshadows. I will be doing a full review on these soon, but as I’ve been utterly obsessed with this colour I thought I should do a quick post on it!
I had this colour for quite some time before I finally used it. It looks a bit too intense of a reddish/bronzey copper in the container, and I think that’s perhaps why I never really played around with it. Then, a couple of months ago, I decided to go through my makeup collection and try something new!
I am SO glad that I did, as it instantly became my new favourite. I have been absolutely obsessed with it all summer!
It is so unbelievably gorgeous, and is so much prettier on the skin than in the container. On the skin, it’s a gorgeous copper-toned bronze with ultra-fine shimmer. It catches the light beautifully and shows as a soft-metallic.
Over the natural colour of the eyelids, it’s much more subtle than you would expect, yet is still wonderfully pigmented. It adds such a nice pop of warmth and the shimmer reflects light to really brighten the eyes. This colour is absolutely perfect for summer, and looks great with peach lips, or even a red lip for a bolder look.
The texture of these shadows is much like a pressed pigment, so I find that they apply the best with your fingers as opposed to a brush. A brush just doesn’t pick up enough of the pigment to do it justice.
The best thing about these eyeshadows is that they genuinely last all day long! I have oily eyelids, and they last for at least 10 hours with virtually no creasing or fading. I have yet to find an eyeshadow that is as long-wearing and pigmented as these. My phone camera does it no justice!
Seriously, if you have not yet tried these, you are missing out. They are an absolutely wonderful addition to every makeup-lover’s kit.
