Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow
Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow

Enduring Vert is Long on Wear, Short on Color

Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow ($24.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “satin pastel green.” It’s a muted sea foam green with a frosted, metallic finish. I thought Chanel Riviere was a dupe, but it’s a lot softer and lighter. MAC Sweet & Sour is greener. Dior Garden Pastels is similar. Lancome Fashion Forward is lighter. Giorgio Armani Green Jacquard is greener, slightly darker.

The Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow is supposed to “stray true for 24 hours without creasing” with a “powder-to-cream texture.” If they sound familiar, they should. Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows and L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows are both iterations of this type of formula, and it’s not surprising that the three have more in common than not when they’re all owned by L’Oreal (parent).

Enduring Vert is sheer when applied dry, but it’s not much more pigmented when applied damp/wet.  I was able to pack it on and get more opaque color, so it’s possible, but it took several passes of color.  The texture was a little chunky, and it looked like it on the lid.  It just didn’t have a smooth finish once on.  It did, however, wear without creasing or fading for twelve hours.  There was some minor fall out that I noticed during wear.

These kinds of greens can be versatile and flattering across skin tones, but the lack of intensity and chunkier texture make it a no-go.

    The green in Nars Habanera seems similar to this too.

  2. I heard much better things about the shade Electrifying Sparkle from this range. Probably partly because it’s supposed to be a near-dupe to the Asia/Europe exclusive Erika F.

    If I can find a better performing dupe for the mauve shade (I think UD Money would do for this colour) I am going to try the lovely look you did for these. How weird that Lancome got the badly performing version of this formula, given that it’s one of L’Oreal’s pricier brands.

  4. Emme

    Such a shame, it is otherwise a lovely color!

  5. Again, such a pretty color in the pan, yet so poor when applied!

  6. It’s not really my colorto begin with, and with a C rating, it’s definitely not something I’d get :-)

    This is so my color…too bad about the pigmentation. Maybe it can act like a similar product to UD’s Stardust though.

  8. Too bad it’s so sheer, cause I really loved the shade in the little pot…

  9. Wow, when I tested this at the BX the other day it was gorgeous and very pigmented. It’s on the top of my list. Maybe it was a bad batch? Or maybe they had a very good batch? lol

  10. Super pretty color–I actually like a soft seafoam green color but I wish this were just a TOUCH more pigmented.

  11. It’s such a pretty mint color, reminds me of icy winter snowstorms!

  12. Christian

    It looks like a sheerer version of the minty crushed metal pigments that were released like 2 years ago. I think it was a summer collection.

    Have you tried the shade Timeless Taupe from this series? I have it a think it’s quite nice, but I’m curious as to your opinion. I also have electrifying sparkle which is a glitsy green-grey, I’m wondering how this compares to other greenish greys on the market? Specifically Chanel Epatant?

  14. Maris

    The L’Oreal Infallible range has a similar color but much, much better quality. It is Innocent Turquoise, though is not for the US. And is limited edition (Miss Candy Collection).
    You guys have Endless Sea which I think is darker and greener, but it is a beatiful shade

  15. Mocha1980

    I found that it works better if you use the Lancôme eye base
