L'Oreal Couleur Infallible (Color Infallible) Eyeshadow: Swatches & Review

L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow: 016 Coconut Shake (899-Endless Pearl), 021 Sahara Treasure (890-Bronzed Taupe ?), 024 Bronze Devine , and 027 Goldmine (997-Eternal Sunshine)

Because Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow are out of my budget (both price and shipping costs) when these came on the scene I was intrigued and tested them out in the drugstore. The sad truth is I only liked the Limited Edition ones they brought out in the Fall and Winter collections in Canada. They retail for $10.99 to $12.99 CAN in most stores so I could not wait for a sale on these as they went like hotcakes. My local Large Zehrs is where I got these.

027 Goldmine was missing it's label when I bought it.
Other Shade I've tested and were swapped away were 001 Time Resist White (shimmer white shade), 002 Hourglass Beige (888-Iced Latte), and 006 All Night Blue (889-Midnight Blue)

001 Time Resist White and 002 Hourglass Beige although looking different in the pot the shades are almost identical when applied on my skin. 006 All Night Blue was a gorgeous dark blue but I don't see myself using it that often. 

Product: I have problems figuring out what brush to use with these as my finger was fine for applying them on but a concealer style filbert brush wasn't picking up any of the product. A fluffy larger shader brush did the trick however. These have a great deal of texture to them and you will never get them to be a mirror metal finish on the lids. I like the texture of them however.

Colour: The shimmer shades are all metallic in finish, 016 Coconut Shake it a tad bit on the sheer side but makes a great highlighter and work well with other cream to powder shadow brands like Yaby Pearl Paints.

Wear: They don't crease on me but disappeared on their own after 5 to 6 hours without a base. With a primer they do last the full day.

Packaging: The tamp cover makes this one of the nicest cream products out there for thinking about trapped air dry out. The lid also closes tightly

Compare: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadow I haven't got my hot mitts on one so I can't say how it compares other then the ingredients list being similar.

I do have a Yaby Pearl Paint of the World palette which is another cream to powder product. The Yaby shadow are finer milled then the shimmer seen in the L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow and do the show less texture on the lids.

Swatches Daylight then Flash no base

Verdict: I love the formula, even if there is no way they live up to the 24hour claims being a powder to cream formula rather then a gel, the intensity lasts a full day with a primer.

Would I buy them again? Yes but only if I find a shade I can see myself using more often than not.
