I hope you all are having a great start to the summer. As we all know, Cannes Film Festival took place recently and like every other year, the iconic makeup brand, L’Oreal Paris’ brand ambassadors including our very own Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Katrina Kaif graced the red carpet. So, after seeing everyone going gaga and the internet getting flooded with the pictures of these red carpet divas, I suddenly realised that I had a new eyeshadow lying in my vanity. And, I wonder why this beauty has not been reviewed on IMBB yet! So, without any further delay, let’s get started with the review!
The future of eye shadow is here! La Couleur Infallible reinvents eye shadow with enhanced color intensity, a new velvety feel, and 24 hour long-lasting hold.
Now you can experience colour that is heightened to its highest heights! This unstoppable waterproof shadow resists blinking, creases, and rubbing!

My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Metallic Lilac La Couleur Infallible Eye Shadow:
Purple is my favorite shade when it comes to color cosmetics. I guess that is the reason which tempted me to pick this up. And, I am so glad I did that. I can’t praise it enough, guys! Right from the packaging to color payoff, it delivers more than what you expect from a drugstore eyeshadow. I have seen huge rave about the entire range of these shadows across blogosphere and some even compared them with high end shadows like Giorgio Armani and all.
The packaging looks very classy and tempting. The screw cap of the plastic container is color coded which makes it easy to locate one particular shade if you own many. Once you open the cap, you will find another black plastic stopper to protect the shadow from external pressure. The shadow itself looks interesting. In the pan, it is appears to be purple-ish silver shade with pink flecks here and there. Once applied on eyelid, it shows different color from different angle, depending on lighting and creates a 3D illusion which is absolutely beautiful! As the name suggests, it is a shimmery metallic shade, but without chunky glitters. For me, it is perfect for party or clubbing!
The texture is semi loose powder, very soft, buttery and gets applied without any hassles. On eyelids, it sets between powder and cream and does not crease for long even without primer. Due to its semi loose texture, one might experience fall outs, especially if applied with a fluffy brush. But, this kind of texture gives best color pay off when applied by finger in patting motion. Pigmentation is fantastic! The true color shows off with a single swipe itself. Multiple swipes will only make it more rich and vibrant. The shade looks amazing against my NC30 skin tone. It is a pretty good versatile shade. You can do so much with it! You can create complex eye looks as well as single wash of this color on entire eyelid looks equally good.
Now coming to the staying power, I have not tested it for 24 hours, as company claims. I guess nobody wears makeup for that long. But, on my uber oily eyelids, it stays for 6+ hours without a primer, with minimal creasing and fading which is decent enough.
Overall, this range of L’Oreal eyeshadows is awesome, budget shadows with interesting texture, good shade range, amazing color pay off and decent staying power.
