So I happened upon a new display & at the front were 3 L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Primped & Precious, Blinged & Brilliant, & Gold Imperial. I wasn’t able to snag Gold Imperial when it first came out but you better believe I snapped it up this time! These 3 shades aren’t necessarily ‘holiday” shades (they were on a holiday looking display in CVS) but the gold/silver shades definitely are.
Primped & Precious: A gunmetal silver with silver shimmers. This isn’t a TRUE silver, but it is lovely & unlike any of my other shades.
Gold Imperial: A true gold with gold shimmer. I don’t have many true golds, most lean yellow or grungy or pale. This is a welcomed edition, especially for the holidays!
Blinged & Brilliant: A peach toned rose gold. If you use just a little bit, this makes a really pretty highlight.
So you can definitely see how shimmery/metallic these are right? The first photo is the most color accurate, 2nd is catching the light, & 3rd is a bit blurred to show you the dimensions of the shades. Pretty right? Each swipe is just a touch into the shadow, no primer.
If you have missed my other L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow reviews, I tend to prefer the shimmery versions. They are vibrant, ultra-pigmented, & they can also be foiled. I have some of the matte shades & although I don’t dislike them I also don’t find them as easy for me to work with. These 3 shades are clearly NOT for the matte at heart! They are pretty much all 3 metallic wonders. If you don’t usually do shimmery, consider them as a holiday touch, use the gold as a liner or the silver as an inner corner highlight for a smoky eye.
Check out my last review of the some of my favorite limited edition shades which shows you the packaging (it is different right?) & how lovely those shades are. Also, jump into some of the eye looks I’ve created using them, like this purple smoky eye I created for my husband’s graduation ceremony!
