L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows.

Happy Shadow Sunday! I'm here with a drugstore pick this week: L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. These things rock. They are firstly super pigmented. Like true to what you see in the pan, one swipe and you've got it right, wash all over the lid pigmented. They also have the most beautiful finishes-- either metallic or a pretty satin from what I've encountered. As for the infallible claim, I have to use a base with them, but I do have quite possibly the oiliest eyelids in the world. Despite my need for a base, they don't crease or fade more than any other high quality shadow I've used. That gets an A+ in my book. All in all, the line is a great drugstore pick (probably in my top 3) and should absolutely be in your collection.

As for colors, I have three. Burst Into Bloom, left, was I believe limited edition but you should totally look for it in your drugstore anyway. It is a fantastic purple-- much lighter and brighter than others in my collections. That makes it an awesome one shadow look for spring and is a look I need to wear again soon. It's foolproof! Purple Priority, top right, is my most recent acquisition. It is a smokey purple with a serious blue-y duochrome and therefore bea.u.tiful. It is an awesome outer corner color for any plummy smokey eye, but I've also been loving it as a smokey liner in my more neutral looks. If you were feeling quite punk I'm sure it would be an awesome lid color. Bottom line: necessity. Lastly, Bronzed Taupe, bottom right, was my first purchase in this line. This has basically become a drugstore classic. It's that perfect bronze-y taupe-y copper-y color that we see so frequently in higher end brands-- and this is just as good. It is so easy to just sweep all over the lid, blend a little, and call it a day. For those of you who find yourselves in a bit of a rush in the mornings, you need this. It's neutral enough to wear to the office but unique enough to feel special. Smudge in some black liner after work and you're ready to hit the town. Done and done.

These shadows are just awesome. By far one of my favorite drugstore shadows and absolutely essential in anyone's collection-- n00b or otherwise.
