Today, I am going to review my absolute favorite eyeshadow range in the world. This is the L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow in Amber Rush. I adore this range because the shadows are of great quality and very easy to work with. These shadows can usually be used alone to create a pretty look. I have a bunch of other shades from this too. Let’s begin with this one!
For the 1st time ever, L’Oréal Paris introduces an ultra intense eye shadow that lasts from day until dawn—a full 24 hours. This revolutionary formula fuses the ease of a powder with the velvety caress of a cream to create a unique hybrid that glides on effortlessly. And with its unique technology, your eyes are enhanced with pure, magnified pigment. Make a lasting impression without batting an eye.

My Experience with L’Oreal Amber Rush Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow:
The eyeshadow comes in a little pot with a tight silver cap. On opening the cap you have another little covering on top that is to prevent the pigment from fallout, I guess. The bottom is transparent and you can clearly see the shade you’re picking up. It is quite sturdy and you can just throw it in your pouch without worrying about it.
This is a pigment-like texture, but is in a pressed shadow form. In that sense, it is very unique and is unlike any other product that I have ever seen. It is very frosty and metallic. It glides like butter on my fingers and there’s a lot of shimmer. It is not exactly the chunky kind shimmer, it’s more like particles with a lot of sheen.
The color is a coppery rose gold shade. It is warm with subtle orange to it. It is highly metallic and reflective and will look like you crushed a copper penny on your eyelid. It is also very pigmented with just two swipes. If I am doing an Indian eye makeup look, it is a no brainer with this shadow. I can use this along with some gold and it works with most outfits. I even wear it with non-Indian outfits, with some black or brown liner and I am good to go. It is a very versatile colour and can be incorporated into a lot of looks.
This lasts all day( 8 hours) on my extremely oily lids without primer. I don’t think I will ever wear makeup longer than that. It starts to fade after that. I know the claim says 24 hours, but I have never worn makeup for that long, so I have no idea. But as long as I want it there, it lasts without budging. And for Indian festive makeup, this is a good quality to have.
I used this product first with a brush, but I feel it gives only half of the depth with that. For best results, use it with a finger or a damp brush if you don’t like using your finger. This application gives the best pigmentation in my opinion and makes it look absolutely gorgeous. This has been touted as a dupe for Mac’s Tan Pigment. I don’t own that, so I can’t do a comparison swatch.
In the swatches and pictures, it doesn’t look quite so coppery and pretty, but looks way better in real life. Also in the swatch, you can notice how my liner has faded, but the shadow had full intensity. That’s how good it is!
Pros of L’Oreal Amber Rush Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow:
• Good packaging.
• Lovely shade for Indian outfits.
• Lasts a really long time without creasing or fading.
• Pigmentation is really good.
• Glides well and applies smoothly.
• The glitter is not chunky.
• Can be applied with just fingers.
Cons of L’Oreal Amber Rush Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow:
• I seriously can’t think of anything!!
I am in love with this shadow. It is a formula that is above excellent and this shade is to die for! If I just have this one shadow, I can be sure that my look will be put together. It is a must-have in my opinion.
