Always Pearly Pink (756)

L’Oreal Always Pearly Pink (756) Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted finish. It had good pigmentation applied dry, which went on the lid evenly and smoothly and required little effort to blend out. It was able to get full coverage when I used a dampened brush, though. The eyeshadow stayed on well for 11 hours before it started to crease faintly, which led to definite, obvious creasing after 14 hours of wear.

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.

Burst Into Bloom (759)

L’Oreal Burst Into Bloom (759) Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark purple with warmer, pink undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation applied dry, whereas using a dampened brush yielded nearly opaque coverage. The consistency was soft, slightly looser in the pot (as intended/expected), and blendable. I noticed that this shade had a tendency to fade slightly after initial application, so it was not as vibrant on as it appeared in the pot. The color stayed like that for a solid 12 hours, and then I could detect more fading. Worth noting, I found the current version (purchased in 2017) to be less metallic compared to my original version from 2014.

Endless Sea

L’Oreal Endless Sea Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a brighter, medium bluish-teal with cool undertones and a metallic finish. My recent version (purchased in 2017) was so much better than the one I had originally! This version was incredibly pigmented, smooth and blendable, and easy to use. I did not feel like it needed to be used damp to achieve better results at all, as it looked nearly the same between the two application methods (dry and wet). The color lasted well for 13 hours before fading ever-so-slightly.

Glistening Garnet

L’Orea Glistening Garnet Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry with subtle, cool undertones and a frosted sheen. Applied dry, it had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that wasn’t quite as shimmery–more pearly–compared to the damp application, where the coverage was rich and opaque with a more metallic sheen. The texture was soft, looser but not powdery or messy to use, and blendable. It wore well for 14 hours before there was noticeable fading on me.

Purple Priority (758)

L’Oreal Purple Priority (758) Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a dark purple with subtle, warmer brown undertones and cooler, more violet-hued shimmer. It seemed to look deeper and cooler-toned when I used it on the lid than when I initially swatched it. It had medium, buildable color payoff when applied dry, and it was rather blendable and easy to work with as well. The eyeshadow was incredibly pigmented when used with a dampened brush. It wore well for 12 hours before starting to fade, and it was only slightly more faded after 16 hours of wear.

Smoldering Plum

L’Oreal Smoldering Plum Infallible 24-Hour Eyeshadow ($7.99 for 0.12 oz.) is a blackened plum with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was slightly dustier compared to other shades, but it was not difficult to use: it still blended out with ease and didn’t have a lot of fallout during application. It had good pigmentation applied dry, but it looked less intense and a lighter compared to applying it with a dampened brush, where it was opaque and richer in hue. The eyeshadow stayed on well for 14 hours before I noticed some subtle signs of fading.
