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.
