This post features three of the six new shades L’Oreal added to the Infallible range with their Butterfly collection. As far as I know, these are new and permanent. I know Ulta has them available online, too, if you haven’t had any luck finding them locally. You can find the other three reviewed here.

Makeup Geek Mercury, Mermaid, Mocha Eyeshadows

Makeup Geek Mercury Eyeshadow ($5.99 for 0.064 oz.) is described as a “metallic medium silver.” It’s a medium-dark, gray-ish silver with cool undertones and a frosted, slightly metallic finish. The consistency was soft but noticeably powdery, so it had a tendency to sheer out some when blended on the skin. I recommend patting the color on to minimize fall out during application as well as sheering out, then blend along the edges to soften. It wore well on me for seven and a half hours before showing signs of fading. Fyrinnae Frostbytes (P, $6.80) is darker. Giorgio Armani Silver Chafer (35) (LE, $33.00) is lighter.MAC Tundra (LE) is a cream product. MAC Warm Thunder (LE, $19.50) is darker. MAC Evening Grey (LE, $19.50) is similar. Giorgio Armani #17 (LE, $33.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

L’Oreal She’s So Matte & The True Gold Nail Lacquers

L’Oreal She’s So Matte Nail Lacquer ($5.99 for 0.39 fl. oz.) is a matte black. It was opaque in two coats, and it applied so-so. Each coat dried very quickly, almost as it was being applied, so it was somewhat challenging to apply. The consistency was a bit on the thicker side. I had noticeable chipping after a day, unfortunately. If you like the matte look, I highly recommend trying a top coat (L’Oreal The Matte Velvet is one) over a black cream, as it is much more durable. Most black creams would work in place of this if a matte top coat is applied over it!

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette

Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette ($52.00 for 0.28 oz.) contains seven eyeshadows with five matte eyeshadows, one Shimmer Wash eyeshadow, and one Sparkle eyeshadow, plus a dual-ended brush all held in a glossy black palette. The matte eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and have a soft, smooth feel to them, though all of them were so soft that they had a tendency to also be somewhat powdery. The two shimmery shades were much less pigmented and had a drier, stiffer texture that made it difficult to pick up color–I really had to jab at the pan to get anything to loosen. Luckily, despite being somewhat powdery, the matte eyeshadows still wore well on the lid–they were not prone to fading as powdery eyeshadows sometimes can be. They lasted well for eight hours with very minor fading along the edges but no creasing. Unfortunately, when two of the seven eyeshadows are disappointing, it may make the whole palette a no-go. If you really love warm neutrals, though, you may still be tempted.

Laura Mercier Cobalt, Espresso, Noir Longwear Creme Eye Pencil

Laura Mercier Cobalt Longwear Eye Pencil ($24.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, navy blue–there’s just a little brightness so it’s not a full-on navy blue. If it were actually intensely pigmented, it would be really quite a rich shade of blue with a nice balance between bright and dark, so it wouldn’t read neon on the lash line but add more pop than something more muted. The consistency was still creamy, but it was sheer and hard to build up the color even when I went back and forth. It seemed to last about seven hours on the lash line, and then it looked thinner but not smudged or migrated, after eight hours. Sephora My Boyfriend’s Jeans has slight pearl and is brighter. Urban Decay Chaos is brighter. See comparison swatches.

Wet ‘n’ Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio

Wet ‘n’ Wild Your 15 Minutes Aren’t Up Color Icon Eyeshadow Trio ($2.99 for 0.12 oz.) contains a yellow, purple, and medium-dark pink eyeshadow. It’s a limited edition trio that you may still find, or you may be out of luck. I’ve asked my local stores, and they haven’t heard anything, and I haven’t seen them myself (in-stores), but I know they’ve released elsewhere and been cleaned out quickly.
