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.

Eternal Sunshine

L’Oreal Eternal Sunshine Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, light-medium gold with strong, warm yellow undertones and a soft, metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, blendable consistency that was finely-milled but still dense enough that it applied beautifully to bare lids. The eyeshadow lasted nicely for a solid 13 hours before it started to fade a bit, though it still looked quite good after 16 hours (when I removed it).

Gilded Envy (755)

L’Oreal Gilded Envy (755) Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a smoky, medium-dark green with warm, olive undertones and a glittery, metallic sheen. The texture was looser and had a sparklier feel–not truly gritty but not as smooth as other shades in the range. It had semi-opaque pigmentation applied dry, whereas a dampened brush applied nearly opaque coverage, but it had tendency to sheer out a bit when used dry and appear more faded/muted compared to how it looked initially. It wore well for nine hours with some fall out and light fading.

Golden Emerald

L’Oreal Golden Emerald Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a vibrant, medium-dark forest green with warmer, olive undertones and slightly cooler green and gold shimmer. It had more of a frosted finish applied dry, which was amplified to a more metallic finish when applied with a dampened brush. It had good pigmentation regardless of application method, but it was truly opaque when used with a dampened brush. The texture was smooth, blendable, and easy to work with on the lid. It wore well for 12 hours before showing a bit of fading, and it was only slightly more faded at the 16th hour of wear.

Liquid Diamond

L’Oreal Liquid Diamond Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a smoky, medium gray with cool, bluish undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation when applied dry, which intensified to mostly opaque coverage when used with a dampened brush. The texture was noticeably sparkly and looser in the pot (even when I used the included tamping device to press it down), so it was messier in the pot and to use on the lid, as it sheered out a bit. This shade lasted for 10 hours on me before it started to fade noticeably, and after 16 hours, it looked decent but not as good as other shades in the range have at the same check in time.

Silver Sky (757)

L’Oreal Silver Sky (757) Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light, bright silver with cool undertones and a sparkling finish. It had sheer coverage, which did not build up much at all, even when I tried using it with a dampened brush or over an eyeshadow primer. The consistency was dry, crumbly, and almost gritty–it did not feel at all like other shades in the same formula. It was hard to get a good handle on just how long it lasted, as there was little there and so much of it was sparkle: there was a ton of fallout within a few hours of application, and it seemed mostly gone by the six-hour mark.
