It was a long time ago and I had been impressed with their Infallible range plus I had this $2 off coupon on any L'Oreal item, so I decided to try one again.
Unfortunately, it turned out the quality was just as I remembered.
Nowadays drugstore eyeshadows are so much better quality, but this isn't.
I usually don't blog about things that I am not too crazy about unless I feel it is my beauty-bloggerly duty to let the world know (as if). I don't feel that dutiful about this, either.
But this one is weird, I tell you. Really weird.
L'Oreal Wear Infinité Studio Secrets Pro EyeShadow Single
The name of the product is quite mouthful. It is misleading, too.
It doesn't wear "infinitely" nor seems there is any "studio secrets" behind it. "Pro"? Give me a break.
The color part is appropriate, though. This neutral shimmery taupe does resemble "brushed suede".
Again, the quality is subpar at best.
The powder feels chalky with little pigmentation, and there are so much fallouts that I am tempted to buy a mini dustpan.
I can get a little more color if I use the sponge applicator, but that is only for a little while even with the help of a good eyeshadow primer.
So I tossed it aside on my vanity swearing "never again".
It was one of those overslept mornings when I gave this another chance.
However, it wasn't because I wanted to. It happened to be the only eyeshadow lying around in sight in that crazy morning.
I smeared my staple L'Oreal Voluminous Smoldering liner over my lids and blended it out using Brushed Suede, and I was floored to see how easy and foolproof it was!
It took only a few minutes and I could leave the house looking decent.
This would be an example.
Not exactly a sophisticated smoky, but it is easiest one for sure.
The taupe has very little presence once it is blended out.
Brushed Suede just adds a bit of sheen and softens the whole look, and that is about it.
So naturally, I have been reaching for it every other day ever since.
Trust me. I detest the quality every single time.
It is like an ugly house-elf you're not quite fond of, so you occasionally want to kick him in the butt (Excuse me, this is my inner "Lucious Malfoy" speaking.), but you need him!
Isn't this so weird?
I don't recommend this eyeshadow to you, yet I see myself hitting the pan. :o
Have you had any similar experience like mine?
Please share with me. ;)
