Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today, I will be reviewing an eyeshadow from L’Oreal and it is from their “Infaillible” range. After reading amazing reviews about these, I decided to try them, but it became really difficult for me to select a particular color as all of them were so pretty. I finally ended up buying 4 of these (I know it’s a little too much, but I wasn’t able to select any one or two). The color I will be reviewing today is called “Pebble Grey” and this was the first one I picked up.
Rs. 475 for 3.5 gm.
The shadow comes in a transparent square-shaped tub with a round screw open cap. The transparent tub makes the color visible which really saves a lot of time in selecting the desired color. The shadow is pressed with a black stopper which also helps to prevent the product from drying up.

The colour adheres to the eyelid as durably and comfortably as a second skin and does not run into fine lines around the eyes.
My Take on L’Oreal Infaillible Matte Finish Eyeshadow – Pebble Grey:
Color: Pebble Grey as the name says is a shade of grey, it is somewhat between the black and silver from this collection. The color has minute sized silver particles in it which is really difficult to see until very keenly observed. As these are so minute, they do not look overdone for any occasion, in fact these help the color to give a beautiful pearly shine to the lids. Pebble Grey is not a usual grey, I do have two more grey shadows, but this one is a little different. To me, it seems to be a grey with blue undertones.
Pigmentation: Superb! This is the only word I can use for the pigmentation. One swipe and it’s done, one swipe is sufficient to get the desired color. Fortunately, the color is buildable too and so it can easily be used to get a deeper smoky eye look. It is a perfect color to get the smoky effect without looking too bold.
Texture: The first time I used it was with a brush, and I found the texture to be fine, nothing to go crazy about, but when I tried applying it with my fingers, I came to know the exact reason why people love it so much. It is so smooth, that it almost felt like I have my fingers on silk. I loved the feeling of touching the product so much that I took the color 3-4 times, which resulted in a more dramatic look. I didn’t have the intention of getting an intense look, but I could not help myself. The color is super easy to blend, and once blended completely, it gives a metallic look.
Staying Power: The Company says that the color can stay for 24 hours and is waterproof too. I am not sure about the waterproof claim as I didn’t put it to test, but I can surely comment on the staying power of the shadow. I was wearing this color for almost 6 hours and after 6 hours, it had the same intensity as in the morning. The color did not crease at all, did not settle in fine lines. I have oily lids, and I did not apply a shadow primer before applying this color, so the color faded a bit, but still it stayed pretty well. This forces me to believe that the color has a super staying power of at least 10 hours if not 24.
Pros of L’Oreal Infaillible Matte Finish Eyeshadow – Pebble Grey:
