L'Oreal Colour Infallible eyeshadow swatches part 2 and EOTD

London Drugs is currently having a buy 2 get 1 free on all L'Oreal products promotion so I picked up 3 more of the Colour Infallibles xD. This is purely a swatches and EOTD post, for my full review of the Colour Infallibles range see here.
I ended up picking Burning Black, Hourglass Beige and Flashback Silver.

Swatches from left: Burning Black, Hourglass Beige and Flashback Silver
Burning Black is a blackened aubergine and is possibly a dupe or similar in colour to the Armani Eyes to Kill in No. 2 Lust Red. Texture is buttery smooth and pigmentation as you can see is amazing.
Hourglass Beige is a light golden beige. It is very similar to Time Resist White but with much better texture, application and pigmentation.
Flashback Silver is a silver lavender that reminds me a lot of Armani Eyes to Kill in No. 4 Pulp Fiction, although Flashback Silver is much lighter. Texture, application and pigmentation were all great.
I decided to play around with the Infallibles to create this slightly bonkers bold look. Yes this is how I walk around the house on Friday nights.
Colours used from inner to outer corner of eye: Flashback Silver, Purple Obsession and Burning Black.
Cheeks: Rock & Republic Contrived blush in Tease. Lips: Make Up For Ever Lab Shine in S26.
Maniacal stare: model's own.


  1. LOVE the EOTD .. the pigmentation is amazing.. is there a lot of fallout from this though? That's what i usually see in reviews for L'Oreal eyeshadows~

  2. Amazing colours! Did you use a primer - I find that I have to use a primer with these.

  3. The stare pulls the look together :P
    anyway so cool!
    I may need to add one to my list..
    When I swatched them and played around with them...they didn't seem all that great. but im intrigued~

  4. absolutely beautiful eotd!! so sad...i can't seem to find these in the US. wonder why...these are such a great deal!!

  5. Very gorgeous!! I really love how pigmented and intense the colours are. I really like your lip colour too, we don't have make-up forever here T____T xX
