L’Oréal’s new Colour Infallible eyeshadow hits the shelves

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

L’Oréal’s new Infallible range is just unstoppable and this month sees the launch of their new Le Couleur Infallible eye shadows.

Available in nine shades, we got three to test. Take a look at how fabulously pigmented they are. Even better, once they’re on, they refuse to budge and promise to stick around for up to 24 hours.

Personally, I can attest to this as I wore a bit of Hourglass Beige the other day for a girls night out. (They apply effortlessly with just your fingertips and have a lovely velvety texture… Also, unlike very loose pigment shadows, they don’t fly everywhere when you open the pot. In fact, the shadow’s so compressed its almost a bit ‘cake-like’. The pot also includes a little loose plastic cover that you can use to smoosh down the powder, flattening it after ease use).

Naturally, I came home in a bit of a ‘state’ and fell into bed without removing my make-up. Naughty, naughty… I know… but when I woke up a smeary mess the next morning, the only bit of my make-up that had stayed put was the Infallible eye shadow.

L’Oréal was kind enough to send us three of them. Take a look at the swatches:

Keep an eye out for them in store. Each shade will set you back R129,95.

    Lovely colours, but I’m not a big fan of the shiny eyeshadows, prefer matt
