It’s safe to say I have a major addiction to the L’Oreal 24 Hour Infallible Eye Shadows. There is a pull in my gut to purchase every single one and love them like children. They’re the perfect base, a vivid eye shadow, and super affordable. What’s not to love?
Some new shades graced the shelves this Summer, and I picked up 7 from the display – 892 Amber Rush, 800 Bottomless Java, 556 Smoldering Plum, 996 Liquid Diamond, 557 Glistening Garnet, 335 Golden Emerald, and 337 Endless Sea.
What the L’Oreal website has to say about 24 Hour Infallible Eye Shadows:
For the first time ever, L’Oreal Paris introduces an ultra intense eye shadow that lasts from day until dawn – a full 24 hours. This revolutionary formula fuses the ease of a powder with the velvety caress of a cream to create a unique hybrid that glides on effortlessly. And with it’s unique technology, your eyes are enhanced with pure, magnificent pigment. Make a lasting impression without batting an eye.
- Intense, maximized color
- Luxurious powder-cream texture
- 24-hour long-lasting hold
- Waterproof, crease resistant, fade resistant
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 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.
The next four are 996 Liquid Diamond, 557 Glistening Garnet, 335 Golden Emerald, and 337 Endless Sea.
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.
