Review: L’Oreal 24-Hr Infallible Eyeshadow

From the moment I first glimpsed the L’Oreal 24-Hr Infallible Eyeshadows, I knew I had to try them eventually!

The texture is quite rich and thick, a cream shadow with a mousse-like texture which dries to a foiled finish on the skin. It comes in 18 shades — everything from clean white to vibrant aqua to brooding plums to icy neutrals! For a drugstore eyeshadow, these shades are surprisingly complex.

I’m going to jump right into the swatches!

“Eternal Sunshine” – This color is a gorgeous canary gold, which conveys a luminous finish. A stunner on baby blues 😊

“Amber Rush” – The penultimate rose gold shadow! Perfect for all skin tones and eye colors, with dueling pink and gold undertones. Gorgeous for a one-shadow eye look, applied to the lid and blended up into the crease.

“Bronzed Taupe” – A must-have neutral — fit to rival Mac’s “Satin Taupe”! High on pigment and shine.

“Liquid Diamond” – Beautiful silver with hints of lavender and periwinkle. Quite a complex shade, a quality which the photo does not adequately portray.

“Glistening Garnet” – Shimmering maroon, with a touch of russet. Particularly flattering for green eyes.

“Smoldering Plum” – Eggplant sheen with subtle red sparkles. A sophistocated fall eyeshadow color!

These shadows do not crease and, while not living up to their 24-hour claim, hold up like champions during a long 12-hour workday. At $8 apiece, you can own quite a few of them without breaking the bank! In terms of quality, they are dupes for the lovely Chanel “D’Ombre” shadows — at a fraction of the cost. Indeed, some shades even remind me of Giorgio Armani’s famous “Eyes to Kill” shadows. The finish of the L’Oreal shadows is undoubtedly metallic (a finish I adore!), although the line does boast one or two mattes.

For stellar drugstore eyeshadows, look no further than these little jewels. Loves ’em! 😍

Final Verdict: 5/5 Stars
