Product Review: L'Oréal Infallible 24 Hr Eyeshadow

The battle of the 24 hr Cream Shadows continue with L'Oréal's Infallible 24 Hr Eyeshadow

I picked up shade 998 Sultry Smoke as I am always on the hunt for grey shadows and thought I'd give this one a try.

The product comes in its jar with a plastic lid insert to protect the shadow and I assume to also prevent drying out.

The texture of this product is very different from what one would expect from a cream shadow. It's almost a dry mousse type texture, which sounds weird but it's definitely not creamy, I actually experienced a bit of fall out when using a brush.

I also tried to apply it with a primer but it didn't make much of a difference with coverage, also when layered thickly the texture of the product gets weird and almost scale like.

The shadows blends easily and I used both a finger and stiff brush for the application and though both worked well I think the brush gives a more pigmented application.

I quite like the shade also, however it isn't the grey that I was hoping for (the hunt for true grey continues) it's a blue based grey and the finish is a satiny matte look.

 I'm not super excited about this product, especially as a cream shadow, cream shadows are unique because of the texture they give once dried and I find that this is so close to a powder shadow, that you'd might as well just use a powder shadow.

What They Say
"For the 1st time ever, L'Oréal Paris introduces an ultra intense eye shadow that lasts from day until dawn-a full 24 hours. This revolutionary formula fuses the ease of a powder with the velvety caress of a cream to create a unique hybrid that glides on effortlessly. And with its unique technology, your eyes are enhanced with pure, magnified pigment. Make a lasting impression without batting an eye."

  1. I actually really liked this product...minus the clunky package and have even used the pink and beige shades on a couple of my brides last year. Here's some blog posts talking about the shadows -

  2. Thanks for sharing! I took a look and some of the colours are super pretty! but I def am not a fan of the texture, even looking at the pics of your swatches I'm seeing fall out and that rough-ish texture?

    I may just revisit a few more shades to see if I feel differently

  3. The texture was better when used w/ a damp firm bristle brush I will admit. I totally get what you mean about the texture...esp. for a "cream shadow".
