Excuse the weird eyelid shot - do you know how difficult it is to take a photo with your eyes closed? If you have any tips, please share.
This particular L'Oreal Color Infallible shadow was pretty popular when it came out; so much so that I had a swap partner in the States ask me to pick one up for her. I resisted buying any for myself at the time but I swatched this shade in store and it was in the back of my mind for ages so I'm pleased to finally have it in my stash.
I'm sure you all know what the concept behind these shadows are; they're a loose powder that's been made...er...less loose by being pressed into a little jar. But they're not pressed shadows either; they feel much creamier. I know some of us talk about 'buttery' pressed shadows but these are even more buttery than the creamiest pressed shadow, in my opinion.
I find these work best when applied with my finger which makes doing a lid/crease/highlight eyeshadow combination a bit more difficult if you're using three Color Infallible shadows but I like to use this shade all over the lid with just a teeny bit of powder highlight applied with a brush. It's a pretty good lazy-day shadow that requires very little effort. Sahara Treasure in particular is a great neutral golden shade with a reasonable amount of shimmer. It looks good by itself and I really appreciate that.
All in all, I think it's a lovely product and a great shade. If you're wanting to pick one of these up, I'd definitely recommend this shade to start with. The price was what had been putting me off; at £7.99 they're not cheap for a drugstore product, especially when you consider that you could buy a MAC pan shadow for just £2 more. I'd suggest looking out for 3 for 2 offers in Boots or Superdrug and buying this then (possibly along with a Rouge Caresee lipstick or Colour Riche polish, I highly recommend both!)
