L'Oreal paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow Review

L'Oreal's claims
  • Intense maximized color
  • Luxurious powder-cream texture
  • 24-hour long-lasting hold
  • Waterproof, crease resistant, fade resistant
description from loreal.com

These come in 12 shades. Most are shimmery neutrals there are a few more colorful colors like blue, green and purple.

I have heard that theses are a good drugstore dupe for the Armani Eyes To kill eyeshadows, but that is probably due to the fact that they are both under the same parent company and use similar formulas. So if you were looking to try the Armani shadows but not at the $32 price this might be a better way to go.  As for what I think of the L'Oral Infallible 24 HR shadows.....

Love it or leave it? Personally I'd leave it.  As far as the claims go it doesn't hold up. It does have a nice powder-cream texture, but as fare as intense maximized color goes it swatches on the fingers nicely yet when applied from there to the skin the pigmentation doesn't show up as intense. I did also find the shadow hard to work with. It was hard to pickup onto a brush and then apply to the eye. The best way to apply it was with the fingers, even then it wasn't ideal. As far as 24 hour long lasting hold goes it couldn't even hold up for 8 hours without creasing and that was with an eyeshadow primer. 

Would I purchase other shades? No, I think that it's not worth the nearly $10 for one color that is hard to work with and does not hold up.
