L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eyeshadow – Purple Obsession Review

Hi Ladies!!!

Today, I am going to review L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Purple Obsession. I didn’t have any plan to get this eyeshadow because I have too many purples and I thought there’s nothing extraordinary about this eyeshadow and I should skip this, but then, I don’t know what got into me and I ordered this. I guess I was too stressed out and I ended up ordering this. p.s. I shop when I am in stress.  Read on to find out whether it is just an ordinary purple eyeshadow the way I thought it to be or it’s something much better.

My Take on L’Oreal Paris Color Infallible Eyeshadow – Purple Obsession:

Purple Obsession is a very gorgeous deep purple color with purple and pink micro shimmers in it. This is a very unique purple because it has a black base. I was very wrong about it being ordinary and I am so glad that I got this eyeshadow. The moment I swatched it, I got gaga over this eyeshadow. The purple fine micro shimmers and black base is something very extra ordinary and moreover, it gives a pearly finish. I am absolutely in love with this color. It is not very bright and can be used alone or over a black base. It can be used with darker and lighter colors and is a perfect party wear color.

The texture is very smooth and soft. It blends very easily. The shimmer is very fine and is hardly visible on the lids. I did find the pigmentation to be not as great as the other colors from this range, but still, it is quite good. It has consistency in between powder and cream eyeshadow.  It can be applied with fingers and a flat brush. There is minimal fall out and this eyeshadow stays on my oily lids for 4-5 hours without any primer. It stays all day long with a primer without any creasing.

This eyeshadow comes in a cute, little, sturdy transparent pot with a screw cap. The packaging is definitely travel friendly.

Despite being loose powder, it doesn’t create mess due to a black pan in it which keeps the powder pressed.
