A few weeks ago I picked up my first L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in a shade called Golden Emerald. I am a sucker for olive greens, so this one was calling me from the first time I saw it.
These eyeshadows are interesting. They aren't pressed, but they aren't loose. They remind me a bit of the MAC Solar Bits - kind of waxy in texture, only the L'Oreal applies a lot easier with a brush than the Solar Bits (for me at least). This particular shade, Golden Emerald, is one of the sparkliest and beautiful colors I've ever picked up from a drugstore. It actually reminds me of Fyrinnae's Dressed to Kill from their Halloween collection a few years back, although a bit darker in my opinion. I'll have to do a side by side swatch to show you guys.
Anyway, I thought I'd play around with this in a FOTD, and here is what I used:
Laura Geller Spackle
Laura Geller Real Deal Concealer in Light
Laura Geller Balance 'n Brighten Foundation
Nars Blush in Orgasm
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Fyrinnae Arcane Magic Futuristic Glamrock - inner corner / lower lashline
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow "Green Emerald" - middle of lid
MAC "She Who Dares" - outer corner into crease
The last picture really shows the sparkle in that Golden Emerald shadow - it is so pretty!
Have you tried any of these Infallible colors? What is your favorite?
