L'Oreal Endless Pearl 24HR Infallible Eyeshadow
L’Oreal Endless Pearl 24HR Infallible Eyeshadow

L’Oreal Endless Pearl In 24HR Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.95 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale beige with neutral-to-warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff, but it has the kind of texture that works best dry, as it tends to crumble and stick to itself when applied wet (so it doesn’t apply as smoothly). ┬áDry, it can be somewhat powdery and may look chalky on darker complexions. ┬áThis is a shade you’ll find across brands, but it’s a great basic shade that works well as a highlighter on lighter complexions or as a neutralizing color to sweep over the lid to even out their color. Bobbi Brown Ivory, MAC Shroom (warmer, satiny), Urban Decay Walk of Shame, Wet ‘n’ Wild Drinking a Glass of Shine #5, Urban Decay Anonymous (satiny), theBalm Adagio, and MAC Brule are all rather similar.

Dive Right In is an iridescent aqua blue with a frosted, metallic sheen. It had so-so color payoff when applied dry and was semi-opaque when applied damp–it was smoother when applied damp as well. This shade creased on me noticeably after eight hours of wear (no primer). This is a limited edition shade, so you’ll likely have to find it at a local drugstore (I received this as a press sample; the other two shades I purchased myself). Giorgio Armani #10 is more silvered. Make Up For Ever #150 is bluer, less iridescent. Giorgio Armani Ecailles Black Pearl #3 is much darker.

Infinite Sky is a cool-toned, medium-dark silver-shimmered blue. Applied dry, it is sheerer, while it intensifies when applied damp–and the frosted sheen becomes more pronounced as well. MAC Dimensional Blue is a smidgen lighter. MAC Moon’s Reflection is a touch darker. Urban Decay Mary Jane is bluer.

I didn’t have any wear issues with either Endless Pearl or Infinite Sky, but Dive Right In did crease noticeably after only eight hours of wear (and these are 24-hour wear, technically). I tested all three shades for a total of fourteen hours, and the other two looked about the same as when I had applied them (no fading or creasing). The texture of the three were consistent; soft, finely-milled, and mostly smooth. Endless Pearl has such a matte finish that wet application didn’t go well compared to a lot of the shimmery shades in the range (and this wasn’t unexpected–a lot of products with matte finishes don’t turn out well if applied wet).

  1. Endless Pearl caught my eye, but it doesn’t look that exciting once it’s swatched.

    • Avatar of Amy xamyx

      Endless Pearl was one of the first I bought when these first launched, and while it isn’t the most exciting shade, I do find myself using it quite a bit. I use it either as a wash, or to blend out the edges of more intense shades, especially if I’m going for “simple” eye, with shadow only on the lid. If you catch a sale/BOGO/coupon, it may be worth picking up, but maybe not as much at full-price.

      • I was thinking that Endless Pearl was one of those shades that would be great for blending. I use a similar color for my upper crease by Lorac but it’s discounted. I love the matte finish of this shadow.

  2. Hmm… These colours aren’t doing that much for me. I think they’re kind of boring. Dive Right looks pretty, but is a little too transparent for my taste.

  3. Christina

    I have all of these (Endless Pearl and Infinite Sky have been around for awhile), but I’m wearing the new LE Dive Right In today. While it did initially apply streaky, I was able to blend it out very nicely over a cream shadow base. So far, it’s been 5 hours since I applied and it looks perfect — no creasing or fading. In fact, much of the annoying sparkle has disappeared…amen!

  4. I’m so glad to see you reviewing these shadows, they are my favorite! I don’t have any of those 3 colors, looks like I may need to pick up Endless Pearl and Infinite Sky.

  5. Neither of the shades really make me go all oooh and aaaah, but I’d still love to give then a try.

  6. Diana

    I just tried Dive Right In today, and I love it. I use a primer underneath, and none of these eyeshadows would ever make it for 24 hours on my oily lids so the 24-hour wear time promise doesn’t mean much to me. I love the sparkle, and it paired well with Kingfisher (dark teal) from Silk Naturals and the the dark blue pencil liner from Pixi.

  7. androgynes

    Endless Pearl seems like the perfect shade to use as a base or to blend other colors out
    I hope they come to Europe so i can check out the color
