Review & Swatches: L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in “Golden Sage”

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Golden Sage

Availability: ULTA, Walgreens, Beauty.com, Drugstores
Price: $8.00 (Approx.)

Company’s Description

L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadows 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 eyeshadow melts gently from the fingertips to the eye lid on application. The result is a luxurious, velvety texture. Infallible Eyeshadow provides sweatproof, waterproof, crease resistant wear with velvet-soft texture that blends easily, providing luminous color with a smooth, even finish.

L’Oreal’s Infallible Eyeshadows are now available in over 2 dozen shades. L’Oreal claims that this eyeshadow will be intense, sweatproof, waterproof, crease resistant, and will last 24 hours. This review is for the shade Golden Sage–a silvery pistachio color.
