I have been reading IMBB reviews on cosmetics for a pretty long time now and have most certainly benefited a lot from them in terms of buying products good for our Indian skin tones. This is my first review ever; I hope it turns out useful to everyone. After reading reviews about the L’Oreal Infaillible collection of eye shadows, I knew I needed them. For now, I bought two beauties, Hourglass Beige and Forever Pink. Today, I will be doing a review on Hourglass Beige.
Ultra concentrated color eye shadow – 24 Hr hold.
Rs. 450/- for 3.5 gm.
It comes in a small transparent container through which the color looks beautiful. When you open the top round cap, a black lid appears on which its written “a conserver, keep me.” This conserver is to keep the pressed powder pigment in place and pressed. The packaging is overall good and travel-friendly due to the conserver. I would like to add that my product was a little cracked when I opened it, but do not panic, its okay as long as the conserver keeps it in place.
When you see the color inside the pot, you find it to be very shimmery, but trust me, it’s not the type of shimmer that looks too much on you. Hourglass Beige is a cool beige color with very good pigmentation. It can be used as a single eye shadow or in the crease area clubbed with other shadows. I personally bought this one to use as a highlighter. If you have slightly pigmented eye lids, you will have to use a nude eye shadow base beneath the color.
It is very good in terms of pigmentation, one swipe and you get a good amount of color on your eyelid. As compared to other colors of the Infaillable range, this one is slightly less pigmented, but that does justice to the shade. It has a metallic finish as well.
The texture is very smooth and lovely. It comes on the finger or the shadow brush easily and blends beautifully. It is very easy to use, even for starters.
As the name suggests, these shadows will not fail you in terms of staying power. They are truly Infaillable. Hourglass Beige stayed on my eyelids as a single shadow without a primer for a good 5 hours without creasing. It does not cause fall outs either.
My Experience with L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eyeshadow in Hourglass Beige:
I simply love this product. For me, it is a multi-tasking product. I personally like to apply this product with my fingers if used as an overall lid eye shadow. I dip my finger in the pan and swirl it two times to get a good pigmented application. To apply on the crease, I find my brush useful. For applying in the tear-duct area, again the handy small shadow brush is required. For applying as a highlighter, I used my fingers. It also blends very easily with a blending brush. Believe me, it is a very good addition to your kit. It did not budge for a good 5 hours with a very slight fading. I had done a very simple eye look with it along with winged eyeliner and a bold lip color. For me, it looked elegant and classy.
