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).

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.

Bottomless Java

L’Oreal Bottomless Java Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep brown with subtle, warm reddish undertones and very fine copper and bronze micro-shimmer. It had more of a satin-to-pearl finish–more of a sheen than a frosted shimmer. It had opaque coverage applied dry as well as damp, but the dampened application made the color appear deeper and richer. The eyeshadow felt slightly thinner and firmer in the pot compared to the more shimmery shades, but it was easy to apply to the lid and blend out. The color started to crease slightly on me after 14 hours of wear.

Bronzed Taupe

L’Oreal Bronzed Taupe Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was intensely pigmented regardless of application method (dry or damp), and the consistency was soft, smooth, and blendable while still having that hybrid loose-pressed texture that the formula is famous for. The eyeshadow blended out beautifully on the lid and lasted for 16 hours with minimal signs of wear.

Continuous Cocoa

L’Oreal Continuous Cocoa Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a sooty, blackened brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. There was a touch of micro-shimmer in the pot, and I could see the effect faintly swatched, but on the lid, it performed and acted a lot like a matte finish eyehadow. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage (up to mostly opaque) with a slightly dusty texture in the pot. It was fairly blendable but could have been easier to diffuse along the edges. It wore well for nine and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Endless Pearl

L’Oreal Endless Pearl Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft beige with warm, yellow undertones and a semi-matte finish. There seemed to be the slightest amount of sheen to the product, though it performed and looked more like a typical matte eyeshadow on the lid. It had good color coverage applied dry or damp, but the softer, looser consistency in the pot made it easy to adjust pressure and brush type for sheerer, buildable coverage if desired. This shade seemed to wear for a solid 10 hours before starting to fade, and it still had minimal fading after 16 hours of wear.

Iced Latte

L’Oreal Iced Latte Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a very light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good pigmentation applied dry, though it was just shy of being opaque unless applied with a dampened brush. The eyeshadow felt soft, loosely packed in the pot but still felt more like a pressed eyeshadow to me. It applied evenly, blended out well, and stayed in place for 12 hours before starting to fade a bit, and after 16 hours of wear, it was still mostly intact for me.
