Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow
Enduring Vert is Long on Wear, Short on Color
Lancome Enduring Vert Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow ($24.50 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “satin pastel green.” It’s a muted sea foam green with a frosted, metallic finish. I thought Chanel Riviere was a dupe, but it’s a lot softer and lighter. MAC Sweet & Sour is greener. Dior Garden Pastels is similar. Lancome Fashion Forward is lighter. Giorgio Armani Green Jacquard is greener, slightly darker.
The Infinite Luminous Eyeshadow is supposed to “stray true for 24 hours without creasing” with a “powder-to-cream texture.” If they sound familiar, they should. Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Eyeshadows and L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows are both iterations of this type of formula, and it’s not surprising that the three have more in common than not when they’re all owned by L’Oreal (parent).
Enduring Vert is sheer when applied dry, but it’s not much more pigmented when applied damp/wet. I was able to pack it on and get more opaque color, so it’s possible, but it took several passes of color. The texture was a little chunky, and it looked like it on the lid. It just didn’t have a smooth finish once on. It did, however, wear without creasing or fading for twelve hours. There was some minor fall out that I noticed during wear.
