Eternal Black

L’Oreal Eternal Black Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark black with neutral undertones and a silver sparkle strewn throughout. The consistency was smooth, not too powdery nor too firmly packed into the pot, but it had a tendency to work best built up rather than packed on. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was buildable to nearly opaque coverage, but I was only able to achieve a really rich, opaque lid color with a dampened brush or over an eyeshadow primer. This shade wore well for 12.5 hours before there was slight fading.

The formula is supposed to have “24 hour” wear with “intense, maximized color” and a “powder-cream texture.” They are absolutely long-wearing, but testing for 24 hours is more than I’m happy to do more than very, very occasionally, though most showed some sign of wear between 12 and 14 hours of wear, so I used that to help determine an approximate wear time. The majority of the shades in the range are semi-opaque to opaque, buildable when not fully opaque, and soft, blendable, and easy to work with. The more shimmery shades tended to be the best and easiest to use while more matte and satin finish shades were not as consistent. You can view swatches of all shades here. I have applied them dry (left) and damp (right) as well.

P.S. — I have reviewed most of these in the past, but it was years ago, and I felt like as one of the better drugstore powder eyeshadows on the market, it was time to repurchase them (to get the latest and greatest versions), re-photograph and swatch, retest, and re-review.

Amber Rush

L’Oreal Amber Rush Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry and more opaque coverage damp. The consistency was soft, loosely packed in the jar but more like a pressed eyeshadow than a loose one overall. It applied evenly to bare skin, blended easily along the edges, and stayed in place for 10.5 hours on me before starting to fade, though there was minimal fading from that point to 16 hours (when I removed it).

Early Bird

Pretty Vulgar Early Bird Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.55 oz.) contains 12 eyeshadows in an arrangement of soft, neutral shades with a peach/pink leaning. The palette is made out of sturdy cardboard and has a large mirror underneath the lid. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth, color-rich, blendable” that is “long-wearing” and “supremely creamy.” I was less impressed with this palette compared to the Prettie Birdie palette. This one had several shades that had more medium to semi-opaque pigmentation with only a handful that were truly pigmented. Many of the eyeshadows in this palette were powdery or dusty, which led to shorter wear and more difficult application.

Pretty Birdie

Pretty Vulgar Pretty Birdie Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00 for 0.55 oz.) contains 12 eyeshadows in an arrangement of brighter, more colorful hues in a variety of finishes. The palette is made out of sturdy cardboard and has a large mirror underneath the lid. The eyeshadow formula is supposed to be “ultra-smooth, color-rich, blendable” that is “long-wearing” and “supremely creamy.” The palette was fairly good–not perfect but surprisingly workable without a primer–with semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, slightly dusty textures, and six to eight-hour wear. If you normally wear eyeshadow primer, a lot of the issues iron themselves out.

ColourPop Chic-y Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($18.00 for 0.21 oz.) is one of two, limited edition palettes from the collaboration with iluvsarahii. I really feel like ColourPop has improved their powder eyeshadow formula from its initial launch, as their mattes are still very blendable and pigmented but seem smoother and less messy/powdery. While more basic in overall color scheme, the colors came together well and were of good quality, so if you’re in need of a warm-toned, neutral eyeshadow “quad,” this might be one to check out.

Talpa (14)

Chanel Talpa (14) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was finely-milled, soft, and lightly dusty in the pan, but it adhered well to bare skin when patted on. I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges. It had great pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

The formula is described as a “richly-pigmented” and “longwearing.” There are 16 shades available, and I’ve tried eight of them and have found that most are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with soft, blendable textures that are often on the dustier side. Some shades were prone to sheering out on the lid and applied best by layering and building up the color than trying to pack it on. They lasted between six and seven and a half hours on me, which was below average. I think Chanel’s formula in their quads is better overall, as they are not as dusty but still are blendable. I think the quad formula also sat better on the lids.
