Swatch, Review, FOTD - L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Bronzed Taupe

I saved the best for last. :)

Bronzed Taupe (890) is my favorite out of the five shades I got from L'Oreal Infallible range.
I even think I like this as much as my holly grail shimmery taupe shade, Chanel Vega (It is a legendary taupe shade that is now sadly discontinued.).




Bronzed Taupe is very shimmery and I think it is probably the most shimmery one out of the five I have.
This shade doesn't have much of grey undertone but stays quite neutral without being too warm.
Application is buttery smooth and the color payoff is just awesome.
I used a sponge tip applicator and smoothed it out using my fingertip after, and this method works very well.
The color last for a long time without creasing or fading when paired with eyeshadow primer. (I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance Candle Light, for your reference.)





This is another great stand-alone shade and I can see this would look gorgeous when paired with dramatic lip colors.

  5. This is lovely! Definitely a shade I'd love to have if I had access to it (still don't know why L'Oreal has to release different shades in different countries)!

  6. Pretty! A very easy go-to everyday shade. Now I just have to figure out if this colour is available overseas - it's so confusing that the ones in the US are named differently!

  9. i think it is one of the few with the same name but i could be wrong.
    now i am more interested in shades released in europe. we have a limited selection here in the u.s.

  19. thank, Debi :D
    maybe i was confusing you. i meant the chanel shade was discontinued, which is why i am hoarding on it. lol
    but now i have this cheap alternative, maybe i won't have to. ;p

  20. thank you, Kim :D
    it is not so dark but just enough to create some depths, i think.
    the lip color i am wearing is tarte lipsurgence in carnation. :)

  21. It's such a pretty shade! Don't know if I need it, considering I have both versions of the Naked palette.. chock full of nudes & bronze tones haha. You look beautiful!

    ReplyDelete

    then i can justify myself even more. i don't have naked palette! kehkeh ;p
