Purchase Review L'Oreal Infallible Butterfly Collection

Sorry for the lack of posts! The last three months have been extremely busy for me, with me not living at home much for most of January. At the end of January, I was wandering around KMart for work and happened to spy a display with the new L'Oreal Infallible Butterfly collection.

6 new permanent colors: 756 Always Pearly Pink, 757 Silver Sky, 760 Timeless Blue Spark, 755 Gilded Envy, 758 Purple Priority, 759 Burst Into Bloom 

I was actually quite surprised by how pricey it was so I ended up getting only 4 colors for myself. I did pick up all 6 for someone else, just in case, not realizing that it was going to be part of the permanent line. I will be returning them since she hopes that she'll be able to get them for much less than I did.

I kept Silver Sky, Always Pearly Pink, Burst Into Bloom and Timeless Blue Spark. I swatched it over primer.

As you can see, Silver Sky and Always Pearly Pink are quite light and is what you'd expect from a Spring collection. I really like Timeless Blue Spark and have been using it frequently.

In my opinion, these Infallible are not quite up to par with the other Infallible shadows in my collection. These have fine micro glitters that I find on other parts of my face as the day goes on. I also think that because there are these glitters in the shadow, the texture is very slightly gritty and not silky smooth.

The Butterfly collection looks very beautiful but I was quite disappointed by the two lighter colors coming out very light. I think that they will be good as highlighting colors. The star of the 4 colors that I have is Timeless Blue Spark. It is a nice shade of blue with great pigmentation.

That's disappointing that the quality of these aren't as good as the other ones! I hate it when companies can't get it consistent.

@Sheila--Yes, it's a bit disappointing but I think it's because the micro glitter is added in to this formulation. Personally I would like to see what it would look like without the micro glitters included. I think that I still would like the blue shadow very much--in fact, much better because I wouldn't have a glittery nose or cheek, etc.
