Product Review & Swatch: L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow

Do you guys remember when I used to be all over loose mineral pigments and actually made an effort to press them since despite being so fabulous, they're quite a pain in the ass to use?

Well, apparently drugstores offer something similar to that. Only, they were hyped after Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill. They are pretty much a long-wearing pressed pigments in a jar. I was able to swatch most of them in the stores and ended up buying 2 of the colors I like use the most, Amber Rush and Continuous Cocoa.

Consistency: smooth, dry, densely packed
Finish: varied (matte, satin, shimmery)
Pigmentation: 5/5
Blendability: 4/5
Staying power: 3.5/5 (On oily lids, eye-primer is highly suggested)
Price: 4/5 (Range within $7-$8)

The ones I picked up:
Amber Rush is such a gorgeous coppery bronze which looks so pretty on tan skin. I usually wear this as a lid color and it gives a healthy beach bronze look without even trying. Continuous Cocoa is a deep brown with no shimmer at all, I like to use it as a crease color and today I just found out that Continuous Cocoa can also be used as an eyeliner. I hardly come across a dark brown liner that is not too red so this is perfect!

I think L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows are very versatile since you can use it as a base too if you like (use a primer before hand to prevent creasing) and the color pigmentation is just amazing. Let me know which color is your favorite :) Thanks for reading!!!
