L’Oreal Liquid Diamond Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Liquid Diamond Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) silvery-gray with a purple tint and a frosted finish. When it’s dry, it’s rather sheer, and when you apply it wet, the finish becomes more metallic and the color payoff is much improved. MAC Hold That Pose! is browner. Guerlain Les Ombres de Nuit is less metallic, browner. MAC Idol Eyes is somewhat similar, but the payoff is so terrible, it’s hard to be sure! What I liked about this shade was that it doesn’t seem to be readily dupeable (at least nothing I could think of). It’s a much more nuanced shade than much of the rest of the color range.

Clarins Enchanted Summer Color Quartet & Liner Palette

Clarins Enchanted Summer Color Quartet & Liner Palette ($40.00 for 0.17 oz.) contains four eyeshadows and one eyeliner shade. Each eyeshadow has a subtle design on top, which does disappear with the first use. There are two dual-ended sponge-tipped applicators. The entire palette is encased in a “gold” plastic compact–it looks more luxe than it feels as a result. There is a full-sized mirror on the interior.

L’Oreal Glistening Garnet Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Glistening Garnet Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.12 oz.) is a berry-tinted pink with a soft, frosted finish. When applied dry, it has a slightly more subdued, redder appearance–it’s not quite opaque. When applied damp, it takes on a pinker hue and the frosted finish is more pronounced, and the color itself is opaque. At a glance, you’d think it was similar to MAC Cranberry, but it’s not at all–Cranberry is much, much darker, more of a burgundy (so it has more brown in it than pink). MAC Moon Rose is pinker. Milani Pink Twice is pinker as well.
