If you know anything about me then you probably already know that I love anything sparkly. That includes all things metallic! Lucky for me, metallics are all over the place in the makeup world lately. I have heard that in the coming months the metallic makeup trend is going to just keep getting bigger and more popular. This is great news for me as I surely am participating in the trend. I am
so ecstatic about it that when I saw the L’Oreal Infallible Paints Metallics EyeshadowI just had to pick them up and give them a try. Today I will let you know what I think about this new product.
Currently, there are only 5 shades available in this new release. The colors are beautiful but I loved them so much that I hope they come out with some new shades! Maybe in a nice rose gold shade…The eyeshadow arrives in a plastic square container with a see through top. My problem, though it is a small one, is that the name of the shade is on a piece of tape that helps close the lid. If you rip that like I did you have no way of knowing the name of the color. Now how am I supposed to remember the name? It would be a better choice to have the name of the color on the actual container. The eyeshadow themselves are a pretty big size for the price. Currently, they are $7.99 at Target where I bought mine, but at Ulta, they are $8.99. However, at Ulta, they are buy one, get one, half off. You can use these eyeshadows in multiple ways such as with your finger or with a shader brush. They can also be used either dry, or if you prefer a more metallic look, wet.
When I was at Target I picked up two of these shades. I had wanted to pick up the silver shade too but unfortunately, they were sold out. When using this product for the first time I fell in love with the texture. The eyeshadows are a power but when used with your fingers they have a very creamy feel and application. They are beyond pigmented. I only needed one swipe to get a completely opaque look. I at first applied with my figure but after decided I wanted a more metallic look. While the shadow was beautiful it looked more glittery than metallic. To increase the metal look of the shadow I decided to go in with a wet shader brush for a second coat. When I went in with the wet shader brush the eyeshadow became extremely metallic with an almost foiled look.
For the most part, I had no problems with the shadow. However, I will say that this shadow did have some fall out even with applying eye shadow primer as a base. I did not notice this problem at first but after a few hours of wear I did have some creasing and fall out. In the future, I would love to try out how it wears with a different eyeshadow primer. Overall, I believe it is definitely worth it to buy this shadows to add to your collection so go out and pick one up!
