Ever since L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows were released, my blogger friends and I'm sure most of the beauty blogger world, have been going crazy over them and trying get various colors. They were first released in the UK and Canada and it wasn't until some months later that it was released in some parts of Asia and finally the US.
I was fortunate to have been gifted with half of my collection. The rest I have purchased.
I was gifted Time Resist White, Forever Pink, Goldmine and Amber Rush. I purchased Perpetual Purple. Midnight Blue, Sultry Smoke and Eternal Black. I recently discovered that Time Resist White is released only in UK and Canada while Forever Pink is a Canada only release. I'm so grateful to my friends who gifted me with these colors.
Justine of Sakura Lovely probably has one of the most comprehensive collection and listing of the Infallibles here. If you get a chance, please check out not only that post but her whole blog. I'm just amazed by her colleciton. Another lovely blogger, Vicky of Vanity-Fashionista also wrote a blog post about her Infallible collection. She also graphed out the colors, other names they are known by (some of the different country releases have different names although they are the same color). She also graphed out which countries they were released in. That post is here. Again, please check out Vicky's blog too. Both of these women are so sweet and I'm fortunate to have become friends with them.
I recently did an EOTD using the Infallibles,
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Forever Pink, Perpetual Purple and Midnight Blue
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Forever Pink in in the inner 1/3 of the eye, Perpetual Purple in the middle 1/3 and Midnight Blue at the outer 1/3.
Lined my upper lashline and outer lower lashline with K-Palette.
I really love the colors. I only wish that Perpetual Purple came out a little bit more brilliant because you can't really tell it's purple in this EOTD. I like to blend my eye shadows but I find that blending the Infallibles isn't easy. Normally I work going from lighter to darker colors but I think that I will need to go from darker to lighter to achieve the blending that I want. I also think that it's best to use an eyeshadow primer to help bring out and hold the color.
I have heard that Infallibles are comparable to Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill but I can't comment on that as I haven't seen or tried Giorgio Armani. I will say that these are really nice shadows to have. They do last all day long and I had no fall out problems. The shimmer in the shadows did not travel down to my cheeks or around my face through out the day. For the price, it is worth trying them out. There is probably only one other color that I'm really interested in getting and then I think I'm good, unless there is a release of more colors.
