Ever wondered about a drug store eye shadow that would last all day? Look no further as L'Oreal Paris has released a 12 color line of "24Hr Infallible" eye shadows.
These were first introduced in the UK back in the summer of 2011 (I think?). My dear blogger friend, Vicky, first posted about these and sent me "Eternal Black". At that time, I didn't think these would make it to our side of the globe, but lo' and behold, these babies appeared at the beginning of the new year in all of my local drug stores.
My temporary storage.
Aren't they beautiful? I don't have all 12 shades available here in the US, but I figured since these are permanent, I can always pick them up later. I'm missing "Endless Pearl" and "Sultry Smoke" (heh heh, Nunu...)
Packaging comparison between the US and UK versions.
They're basically the same though! The little differences do make it fun to own such an international versions.
These pressed pigments are encased within a small, screw top container with a little stopper to help contain the shadow safely, keeping application and clean up easy and clean.
On to the swatches!: All of these were swatched without a primer. Look how vibrant they are!
L-R: Perpetual Purple, Golden Sage, Iced Latte
L-R: Amber Rush, Infinite Sky, Midnight Blue
(Check out my last post using Iced Latte, Amber Rush, and Midnight Blue)
L-R: Continuous Cocoa, Eternal Sunshine, Bronzed Taupe, Eternal Black
I picked these up at my local CVS and Rite Aid during those weekly drugstore sales (BOGO 1/2 or those promos with the extra coupon cash backs) so they're now widely available in the US. They retail for around $7-$8. Definitely not a bad price for the quality of these drugstore gems. And I find it kind of fun using my fingers! It brings me back to my childhood days when "finger painting" was one of the best pastimes ever.
I've jumped on the Infallible train right along with the rest of these Infallible bloggers:
and Vanity Fashionista (check out her list of all the infallbiles and which are exclusive to which country).
Have you tried any of these shades out yet? Which are you lemming for?
Woo. First post of February. This past week has been rough due to that lovely time of the month, so I've been in pain here and there. Y'know...the usual. -sigh-. But hoping to post more frequently during this upcoming week. Hope you all are doing fantastic and having a great weekend. ♡
For all my US buds, tomorrow is Super Bowl Sunday! Bring out the chips, salsa, and guac!
