L’Oreal Blinged & Brilliant Infallible Eyeshadow
Make Holiday Magic with This Blinged & Brilliant Eyeshadow
L’Oreal Blinged & Brilliant Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.49 for 0.12 oz.) is a warm peach-beige with a bright, metallic finish. Milani Champagne Toast is a bit darker. MAC Summer Haze is fairly similar–perhaps a touch lighter. MAC Sweet Satisfaction is less metallic and softer. MAC Jest is very close in color, just less metallic.
I snagged this at my local CVS last week, and I’m in love! It’s incredibly soft, finely-milled, and smooth but the finish is high-frost, high-shine. It’s also absolutely dazzling and sparkling and all things magic during the holidays. If ever there was an occasion that merited finding the most sparkly finishes on the planet, it is the holidays. The pigmentation is excellent, whether you use it wet or dry, you’ll get full coverage. If you apply it damp, you’ll find the metallic finish is more prominent, while when used dry, it’s a combination of metallic and frost. I tested this shade, and it lasted for the twelve hours I wore it without fading or creasing (no base).
To make it less metallic, pat a matte eyeshadow on top (something beige and neutral works, or something of a similar color). Also worth noting: because of the extremely metallic, frosted finish, it can emphasize dryness on the eyes.
