L’oreal Infallible 24-hour Eyeshadow March 10, 2013

The L’oreal Infallible Shadows have quickly become my FAVORITE eye shadows of all time!  Not only do they have a wide range of shades to choose from but the formula of these beauties is amazing – they transfer SUPER-pigmented color to the lids, they blend beautifully and they last throughout the day without wearing off.  

The texture is almost buttery to the touch and almost feel creamy at first and set to a powder finish, if that makes sense!  I can, with confidence, compare them to more expensive shadows such as Urban Decay or even M.A.C.  I think they’re that great and at a much cheaper price.  

You can find these at any drugstore, though some locations have more variety of colors than others.  At my local drugstore they’re priced at $8.99 but that usually changes with store locations.  I’m not exactly sure on the amount of colors they have at my local store but it’s anywhere from 10 to 18 shades that are available at various locations. 

I have only collected four shades so far, though I plan to broaden my collection slowly!  I wear these shadows almost daily and I’ve been so happy with the outcome.

556 – Smoldering Plum 335 – Golden Emerald 892 – Amber Rush 890 {smashed!} – Bronzed Taupe

On a daily basis I apply Amber Rush all over the lid until I get to the crease and then blend Bronzed Taupe into the outer corner and into the crease.  I also take Bronzed Taupe and apply a small amount, with a small detail brush, to the lower lashline to add definition.

Here are a few looks I’ve created with these shadows.

I used Edgy Emerald all over the lid for this look.

I used Amber Rush on the lid and Bronzed Taupe lightly through the crease on this look.

As said before, these are fast becoming a staple in my own makeup bag as well as my professional kit!  I’m so happy with all aspects of this eyeshadow range and can’t wait to try more shades!

If you have tried these, please leave a comment below and let me know the color you got and how you like them – I’d love to hear your experience!

Until next time…
