Because I’m doing 7 of these shadows in one post, I’m breaking them down into two parts for sanity’s sake.

The first three are 892 Amber Rush, 800 Bottomless Java, and 556 Smoldering Plum.

Amber Rush

Amber Rush comes off just a bit lighter than a shiny, brand new copper penny. I’ve been wearing this one alone on the lid with a molten black liner such as Urban Decay Perversion.

Bottomless Java

Bottomless Java is a chocolate bronze laced with golden bronze shimmers. It’s drool-worthy. If you’re a neutral or bronze eye lover, you need this.

Smoldering Plum

Smoldering Plum is a rich, frosty purple with burgundy shimmer. A lovely jewel tone that will be amazing this Fall!

The next four are 996 Liquid Diamond, 557 Glistening Garnet, 335 Golden Emerald, and 337 Endless Sea.

Liquid Diamond

Liquid Diamond is a frosty greyed lilac with silver shimmers. This shade will work well with Purples, Greys and Taupes!

Glistening Garnet

Glistening Garnet is a frosty berry with what looks to be a tint of fuchsia shimmer.

Golden Emerald

Golden Emerald is just absolutely stunning. A golden olive green packed with gold shimmer.

Endless Sea

Endless Sea is the exact shade of the Caribbean, if the Caribbean would become an eye shadow. So beautiful that you won’t be able to catch your breath if you look at it too long.

Previously I tested the wear of the Infallible Eye Shadows & they are everything they say they are and more. If you find that they aren’t as intense as you’d like, try using them wet (though, IMO you don’t need to). I’ve reviewed eight others here and here (EEK, I just noticed Amber Rush is a repeat lol sorry)!

I’ve found it is better to apply these with the finger, rather than a brush (like the Armani’s). It just gives off an easier, smoother application, and is nicer to blend that way. The feel of the L’Oreal shadows is a little more powdery than the Armani, but they work just as well and are a fourth of the price (I paid $7.99 each at Rite-Aid).

L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadows retail for $9.95 (MSRP) but pricing will vary based off of where you buy them. Usually at least one store will also have a deal where they are buy one get one half off, so be sure and check your ads and your Sunday paper for coupons. These can be found at your local drugstore as well as at Ulta and drugstore.com.
