L’oreal Color Infaillible Eyeshadows are pretty damn good. I’ve reviewed the shade Burning Black before. However, this particular shade was only released in the US. It’s worth getting your hands on it though!
These are a bit like loose pigment quality eyeshadows but in pressed form. It’s very tightly packed and so there’s no mess!
The shade Amber Rush is a cross between a copper and rose gold shade. It’s so flattering on all skintones, it’s perfect for festive or wedding kind of makeup. I really love how intense it looks on the lid.
In comparison, Amber Rush to be is like a cross between Urban Decay Trick (Naked 3 palette) and Sidecar (Naked 1 palette). But the swatches are also to show how crazy pigmented it is without a primer. As good, if not better than Urban Decay and miles better than Mac All That Glitters.
It’s insanely pigmented, you probably don’t even need a primer! The shimmer is just so reflective and densely packed, it gives a very bright foil like effect.
One slight issue I face is picking up a bit of chunky product on the brush. It isn’t very loose like normal eyeshadows but you do need to tap off the excess product. I find that the best way to apply them this to tap on the lid to pack on the colour and then move it around in strokes rather than swiping it across. It can look a bit uneven with the later.
There’s no fallout or creasing. These last for absolute ages, well over 8 hours and look as pigmented even at the end of the day. They don’t budge and slip in heat. Sometimes with eyeshadows they move around the corners and that definitely doesn’t happen with these.
The packaging is quite unique and very well made. You get a stopper and it’s a convenient way to use the product. So much easier to use than loose pigments since it’s all packed together.
This range is so worth it, definitely try them out at the counter if you get a chance. You get 3.5g of product for around Rs. 400 which is a steal for the quality you get in return.
