“How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot, Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned.”
Love the movie and the eye shadow too. Confused?!!
Let me see what I can do to get you rid of all the confusions..!!
I love golden eye shadows on my eye lids, be it matte or shimmery. I feel it is a very festive color and can rock any occassion. I have two eyeshadow monos from Loreal Infallible range, and i have been planning to buy this golden one since long. So, when I saw this little beauty amonst the other gifts from Anamika, i was utterly happy. Our Santa can read mind as well
So, today’s review for the “BLAST FROM THE PAST” series is on L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible eyeshadow Eternal Sunshine (997). And yes, the quote above is beacause of the name of the shade.
About L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eyeshadow:
L’Oreal’s Infallible Eye shadows contain ultra concentrated colour pigments, for an intense colour finish. Additional binders (oils) coat and magnify the colour pigments revealing beautiful shimmer and maximized colour. The colour adheres to the eyelid as durably and comfortably as a second skin and lasts for up to 24hrs. With a formulation that lies between the comfort of a cream and the ease of application of a powder, infallible eye shadow melts gently from the fingertips to the eye lid on application. The result is a luxurious, velvety texture. Infallible Eye shadow provides sweat proof, waterproof, crease resistant wear with velvet-soft texture that blends easily, providing luminous colour with a smooth, even finish.
PRICE:- 450 for 3.5gm
My experience with L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eyeshadow Eternal Sunshine:
PACKAGING:- The product comes in a little, flat, square jar, which is clear at the bottom and the shade is thus easily visible from outside. The shade name is written on the top of the cap which twists open, and there is a golden stopper with handle inside. The stopper keeps the eye shadow underneath pressed and well in place.
SHADE:- It is a bold, very gorgeous, intense dirty gold with shimmers. In the pan it seems to be a beautiful sunshine gold, but when blended on lid it is an equally beautiful gold with hints of green. I love to wear it alone, and sometimes mix and match with other shades too. I use it as an inner corner highlight too and it is great. It is a neutral yellowish gold shade, so I feel it would suit both warm and cool toned skin and varied complexions too.
TEXTURE:- I love the way it looks on the tub. The texture is soft and applies smooth even with the chunky shimmers. The shimmers though feels chunky, spreads easily and smoothly to give a gorgeous metallic sheen. But there are some fall outs when you try to pat or layer the eye shadow.
PIGMENTATION:- It has a great color payoff. Two swipes are enough to achieve opacity. It can be used both wet and dry, and it is more intense when wet.
STAYING POWER :- It has an awesome staying power. Company claims it to be as long staying as 24+ hours. Keeping an eye makeup for 24+ hours at a stretch is a little too much. But for experimental purpose I did wear it for 15hours at a stretch and it stayed without any fading or creasing. IMPRESSED !!!
Summing up the “Likes” and “dislikes”:-
What I like about L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eyeshadow Eternal Sunshine (997):-
- Scintillating gold color.
- Impeccable staying power.
- Perfect silky texture.
- Settles into a metallic-satin finish. (aaa !! I hope I made it clear enough)
- Blends nicely.
- Doesn’t crease.
- Well pigmented.
- Can be used both wet and dry.
- Nice, sturdy, easy to carry tub.
- Easily available.
What I donot like about L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible eyeshadow Eternal Sunshine (997):-
- Slightly higher side of the price spectrum for a single shadow.
- Falls out a little.
Final Thoughts:- There is always a love-hate relationship with me regarding the L’Oreal infallible mono eye shadows. I think they are GORGEOUS, but not all are up to par on pigment and texture. I have two from this range, and both are just “so so”, nothing great. As per this, gold is one of my favorite colors of eye shadows, the texture and pigmentation are nice and staying power is brilliant. The little fall outs can be easily forgiven because there are sooo many other things to love about this shade. I am very happy and would definitely recommend. Swirl your brush on this beauty, dust on the pigment for a subtle effect or pat on progressively more for greater intensity. Wear it alone or complement with other shades, wear it as a highlighter or add a stroke of it on lower lash line; you would love it.
P.S : Don’t get afraid of my eye make-up. All through the day sitting at home with everything prohibited has taken its toll on me. I have turned into mad-hubani.
