My experience with Loreal Infallible Eye Shadow 999 Eternal Black:
Packaging: These eye shadows come in a small square based plastic pot with a twist –off cap and a inner plastic lid meant for keeping the eye shadow pressed in the pot. The packaging is wisely thought and the inner lid should not be discarded at all; It keeps the eye shadow secure.
Texture: It has a soft texture to look at similar to other shades from this range, but the texture is powdery and crumbly with silver glitters.
Shade: Eternal Black is a matte charcoal black with bright silver glitter.
Color Payoff: The eye shadow looks very dense in the pot and almost gives an illusion that it shall go opaque in a single swipe, but this not the truth. It goes sheer to semi sheer on lids, of course with very evident silver glitter.
The color payoff can be built up with multiple layering. Color pay off improves when this eye shadow is used wet.
My Take: To start with, I would say that I really had high hopes with this eye shadow considering my mind blowing experience with the other shade from this range, “Timeless Blue Spark”.
Though the shade in the pot looks like an intense black shade that any smokey makeup lover would desire to have but it settles to a semi sheer finish on the lids. I layered the eye shadow to build the color intensity in a patting motion, and yes I got opaque coverage but at the same time silver glitter got intensified too, so much so, that it was the glitter that was ruling my lid. Though I love this shade on my lids and I am even ready to ignore heavy silver glitter, but its fall outs are not worth ignoring.
This particular eye shadow has some immense fall out so do not even think to use it without a base, and blending the shade with a brush too is a bad idea, as this would only help the glitter to spread here and there. Only patting motion is advised for this particular shade.
The eye shadow stays easily for some 7-8 hours with a base, but by that time you will see a lot of glitter around eyes and near the nose, so by any means one will not wish to carry this eye shadow this long and roam like glitter ball all over.
What I Like About Loreal Infallible Eye Shadow 999 Eternal Black:
- Good packaging.
- Works well when used wet.
What I Don’t Like About Loreal Infallible Eye Shadow 999 Eternal Black:
- Poor Color Pay Off.
- Powdery Texture.
- Not easy to blend.
- Have major fall outs.
0.5 extra since it belongs to Loreal Infallible range.
Will I Recommend: Not at all.
