L'Oreal Infaillible La Couleur Iridescent Finish in Permanent Kaki, Flashback Silver, Innocent Turquoise, and Tender Caramel Review and Swatches



When my mom asked me what i wanted for Christmas i instantly had a light bulb go off. While i love my higher end cosmetics, i have a few favorites from the drugstore. Some cosmetics by big brands like L'Oreal and Maybelline offer different items in Canada, where my mom lives, than they do in America (where i live). So i asked if she could pick me up some L'Oreal Infallible shadows since i already owned all of the American ones. This is my review on the shades she picked up for me.



For someone that has no real concept of cosmetics and what goes together she did a great job of picking out some pretty shades. The formula of these shades is exactly like the American version. Each container has a small press to keep the pigments down and the shadows apply mostly opaque. There is a lot of pigmentation in these and according to their label are supposed to have a nice Iridescent Finish. These shadows are meant to last 24 hours on the eye. I got about 13 hours before i had to shower and they were still in tact but i did use a primer. I did not find these sheer without one i just use one out of habit. Since they are somewhat like a loose pigment, just pressed, there was a little bit of fallout but nothing to really complain about. Just tap your brush on the package before applying to the eye.

Overall i really liked these shades and how well they applied. Even though they were iridescent they had high pigmentation and applied smoothly. I did find Flashback Silver to be more of a greyed purple and found both Tender Caramel and Permanent Kaki to be just a little bit duo chrome in some lights.
