My sister texted me the other day. She was all "LOL OMG U have G2G to Walgreen's and buy some makeup". Okay, maybe she didn't put it that way exactly, but we do the texting like the young kids.
Anyway, she told me the new L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows were at Walgreen's. I had been out hunting for them the previous day, but I didn't make it far.
I accepted my new mission, and I did what any good mother would do........I promised the children a special treat if they would ride along to another store and be good for just five minutes while mommy picks out her new eyeshadows. Totally worth it! These little babies are gorgeous.
We will start with Golden Sage, which has been on the permanent display of Infallibles.
Golden Sage is less golden, more minty. It is gorgeously rich and shimmery. Periwinkle Cardinal is lighter and slightly more blue. Nouveau Monde is more olive colored.
Gold Imperial (yes I screwed it up in the pictures) is a lovely bright gold.
It is more of a white gold compared to Eternal Sunshine. Half Baked is more reddish. At the last minute, I decided to pull out Chanel Topkapi to compare. It is close, but Topkapi has more yellow in it.
Gleaming Bronze is a gorgeous antique bronze that I couldn't resist!
Lastly is the unique Pink Sapphire. In some lights it looks almost iridescent.
In the shadow it looks warmer. I don't have much in the way of pink eyeshadow to compare, but I think this could be close to MAC Rose pigment without the strong golden shimmer.
These all were very pigmented in one or two swipes without fallout. I haven't tested them on my eyes yet, but they seem to have the same smooth texture and rich color payoff of my other Infallible eyeshadows. I would highly recommend stopping by your local drugstore if you already love these potted pigments.
