A quick picture post featuring a couple things I recently picked up. I’m planning to do a L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow swatchfest…sometime in the future.
- L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in Gold Imperial (407), Pink Sapphire (405) and Gleaming Bronze (408) - These colors are from the L’Oreal Summer 2012 It’s Gold or Nothing At All collection - related post on Nouveau Cheap. They were BOGO50% off and I knew that I really liked the formula of these and I had coupons and the awesome cosmetics specialist had coupons so…I got the colors that I didn’t already own. The fallout is the only downside of these shadows in my opinion, but these seriously do not come off and they’re so pretty.
- Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo 24Hr Eyeshadow in Pomegranate Punk (30) | link - …there isn’t really an explanation for this. One of my friends recommended this color to me and I was like well I already have four colors what’s another one and I got it for two dollars.
- Revlon ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow Quad in Inspired (540) | link - When these were launched, this quad caught my eye because it was green/teal/blue and I love that color combination. I had a great coupon from Target so it ended up being $2.99. …admittedly I haven’t had the best experience with Revlon shadows, like the quads they discontinued that these are replacing, but I’m hoping that they retooled their formula.
- Revlon Eyelash Curler | link - I am officially on the hunt for a new lash curler and I have decided to try every single drugstore curler I can find before looking into mid to high-end curlers. I would rather not spend a lot on at least one part of my beauty routine for once haha.
And as for the eye look in this post, I decided to use the Revlon quad to test out the quality and such…and for the most part I’m impressed! Using the sponge applicator provided in the quad, I used the upper right color (light blue) as my all over lid color (with the bottom left color - pale green - patted on top), the bottom right color (deep blue) as the crease/outer corner color and the upper left color (off-white) as the inner corner color and dragged it slightly down onto the bottom waterline.
Full disclosure - I used the NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base as my primer. With that said, I took these pictures at around 7:30 pm and I first did my makeup (no retouches) at 10:30 am. *slow nod* I’m liking the wear on these. And just a quick note, used L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara in Black and Tarina Tarantino Hyperliner in Glamorous Thief.
