Ready for a serious case of the “I Wants”? Ever since other people have started getting their hands on the 6 new shades L’Oreal released for summer from the Infallible Eyeshadow line I’ve been cursing to be without them. In person, I passed on 2/6 which were the shades Liquid Diamond & Smoldering Plum. I passed up a purple? I know I know hold your sighs & shock until the end though! The Liquid Diamond shade was a silver-y lilac type shade & I liked it but didn’t NEED it. Smoldering Plum was DARK & because I already have Perpetual Purple which is absolutely stunning, this one didn’t blow me away.
This left me with Bottomless Java, Golden Emerald, Endless Sea, & Glistening Garnet. All of these are MUST-HAVES & absolutely, incredibly, undoubtedly stunning. These have been spotted at many locations but I personally found mine on a wall display (NOT a shelf display!) at Walgreens for $7.99 each.
So, somehow beyond me, I’ve only featured Perpetual Purple from the L’Oreal Infallible line on my blog as a main post! & I did it TWICE! Once was for my Birthday Smoky Eye & the 2nd was the actual test for my husband’s military ceremony. SHAME on me! So I will go into more detail about these for those unfamiliar & do a FULL collection review when I get back. How’s that sound? Fair?
These have wonderful packaging for me personally. Although I like the normal square or circle packaging, these have a very stable base & lid. I also REALLY like being able to see the shade on both the top label & the window on the bottom. Makes finding these 110% easier. These come with a little push-down things (shown in first picture in post) that you keep inside that re-condenses the products after it becomes loose. Brilliant.
Here is the product itself in each color. First picture is in natural shade, second is with flash to bring out tones you can’t really see otherwise in the packaging.
ENDLESS SEA: An aqua shade that leans turquoise when heavily applied & in darker areas. Glimpses of blue, gold, green, & even lavender can be seen. Perfect name for this shade as it reminds me of the Greek Isles or the Caribbean.
BOTTOMLESS JAVA: A deep brown laden with bronzey shimmer. The second picture is actually way more accurate to the swatch than the first which looks creamier. This looks RICH. When swatched, I actually catch some purple/pink tones up close. Greens too. VERY complex.
GOLDEN EMERALD: A kelly green with heavy doses of gold. Gorgeous! Ultra rich & looks like the gold is glitter its so pigmented. When it catches the light, you can catch all the different shades of green that make up the shade & the gold is breathtaking.
GLISTENING GARNET: A very red based pink with a lilac flash in sunlight. This has been described as everything from a pink to a burgundy to a red in some case. People aren’t making up their minds! Check out the difference here & how gorgeous & different that purple sheen is!
For reference: NONE of the swatches have been color corrected or such edited at all other than cropping. They really are this fantabulous.
Can you tell I love them? That they’re gorgeous? That these shades are instant favorites? What do you think? Will you be searching for them? I’m NOT sure if they are Limited Edition or if they will be added to the core shades..but as soon as I find out I will let you know! Any favorites?
