EOTD, Review - L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Sultry Smoke

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas! :)

I want to do EOTDs and FOTDs (if possible) using my recently purchased L'Oreal Infallible shadows.
I am planning to use just single shade with eyeliner and mascara, so it would be like swatching on eyelids.

L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Sultry Smoke

(Yes, I am recycling my pics. ;) )

I thought this shade was matte since other shades I bought look so shimmery and glittery, but it turns out this one is also very slightly shimmery. However, the shimmer in this is so subtle it would pass as a matte shade.
This is probably the creamiest in consistency and it is very easy to work with. I used a stiff eyeshadow brush and it applied evenly with minimum fallout.
You can customize the color intensity depends on how you use it as well. 
I got a sheer coverage with sweeping motion and more color by pecking it carefully.

sorry about the eyeliner misapplication and the white cast. I initially tried to wear falsies but I failed miserably. T,.T
These mistakes were not so visible in real life, really. ;p

I am wearing 
L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Sultry Smoke
Maybelline Master Drama eyeliner in Coal Commander
L'Oreal Voluminus False Fiber Lashes Waterproof mascara in Black
NEO Monet contacts in Blue

I did not use any eyeshadow primer this time, but it lasted all day without changing color.

  2. Pretty colour! ^^. And I just tagged you in my recent post! :D Take a loooook. Hehehe. http://xiaoqingqiang.blogspot.com/2011/12/11-questions-tag.html

  3. i can see that the color is very pigmented just from the photo itself :D

  4. pretty color!!!

  5. you are right!
    colors usually don't show up vivid if i take pictures under natural lighting. this time it showed up pretty well. ;)
    i am excited to try other colors on.

  6. thanks Aki!
    i will go read your post.
    i might pass it on if it is similar to the one i did a couple months ago, though. cool? :)
    (thanks for tagging me, btw! ^-^)

  7. there are different shimmer beige gold taupe shades available. they would look so good on you, i can see! :)

  8. It looks really pretty on :)

  9. the color is lovely...and it doesn't remind me of dirty pigeon anymore..hehe..;P
    Hope you can also do an EOTD for the bronzed taupe..because the shade is just so pretty!!!

  10. when applied, it is gray with blue tinge which i like a lot.
    of course, EOTD for bronzed taupe is in order. :)

  11. It applies surprisingly blue, I like it! I was actually more drawn to the shimmer eyeshadow shades from your previous post, now I'm convinced otherwise. Great EOTD!

    How pretty! The color is really nice. It's hard to find smokey shadow colors without looking filthy. I love reading your posts on drugstore brands. They're really helpful, considering the fact that I can't test them before purchasing them

  13. i am glad you find this helpful! :)
    i think drugstore brands are nice if you just know what to buy. on the other hand you could waste suprising amount of money sometimes. lol

  14. thank you Stacey. ;)
    it might be showing a little bluer than what it is, but certainly it is not a dirty looking.
    i just noticed they come in 3 different kinds of shimmer. luckily i happened to include all of them in my purchase. ^-^

    the smokey look looks fab, love the blending of the eyeshadow in this look. hope you had a great Christmas!!

  16. hey! :) hope you had nice one, too.
    i like that i just need to use one color. it is so simple when i am busy and running out the door in the morning. :)

  17. This looks really good on you! I love how you lined your lower lash line!

  18. I haven't tried any loreal eye shadows yet :O maybe I should


  19. i hardly considered L'Oreal for eyeshadow purchase, so this is a surprise for me, too.
    give it a try. so far i like them a lot. :)

  20. thanks :)
    i wish i could put something on my lower waterline, but i can't find anything that stays.
    and i usually skip mascara on lower lashes so lining like that works for me. ;)

  21. it looks like with the infallible line, all the colors come out more sheer than it actually looks. nevertheless, it looks amazing on you!

  22. thanks, Jas.
    i just found out that sponge tip applicator works really well for these.
    it makes 200% difference. i am very happy! :)

  23. it looks pretty on u Lena !!
