the color was perfect for inner corner highlighting but the formula was very chunky! not sure if i got a bad one or its just THIS particular color. my emerald one was fine, this one was very chunky and "wet" like, difficult to spread...
Total dud for me. Not pearly at all, no sparkle, no depth, appears chalky and flat. I expect better quality from the Infallibles, several of which I use often. This one's a waste of time.
Perfect for a quick and easy highlight for the inner eye corners and browbone. Just use your fingers! If youre looking for a very pigmented shadow for the lid, i dont think youll get that with this. But for a foolproof and subtle inner corner and browbone highlight, this is my go-to product. Minimal fallout, finely milled, buttery texture- love.
This is just an average eyeshadow, but it is better than most drugstore eyeshadows. Endless Pearl doesn't seem to have as much staying power as the other Infallible shadows I have tried do, even when I use primer.
I love using this to even out my eyelids. I hate looking really "made-up" so I'm not big on eyeshadow, especially when I use a really pigmented blush/bronzer/highlighter/lip color. But I have the vein-iest eyelids and I'm always on the lookout for something that will even them out without creasing. When I first tried this I didn't like it because it looked chalky and dry. But when applied wet (with fingers or a damp concealer brush), it goes on like a dream!! It's super creamy and easy to blend and makes me look so fresh eyed and awake. I use this on top of a primer, and it stays on all day with no creasing. It also makes a great base for other shadows. My only issue with all the Infallibles is the packaging. It's cute but the stopper thing is pretty annoying when I'm in a hurry. I'm willing to deal with it though because it's perfect in every other way.
This eyeshadow is...weird. I honestly don't know if I'd repurchase. I'd give this 3.5 lippies in reality because I do actually like it, but it takes some fiddling to get a good result.
In the pot it looks like a matte beige color that would be a perfect brow highlight, and that's why I bought it. It's very pigmented, but the texture is...chunky, somehow. You really have to gouge it to get some on your brush, and then when you first apply, it is VERY chalky. Seriously, the first time I used this my face fell and I was like 'Oh god, this is so chalky, what am I going to do?!?!' I make it work by brushing the hell out of it. I don't get any more product, I just keep going over and over it with the same brush. This smoothes out the chalkiness very nicely. Brushing it vigorously also reveals that this is not a flat matte, it has just the tiniest bit of satiny sheen to it. When I apply it in this way it is a lovely browbone highlight! It just looks beautiful, and it's so pigmented it evens out my blotchy eyelids.
I'm torn, there are a ton of matte beiges out there that are much easier to work with, but this is really pretty once you smooth it out...
This is hands-down the absolute best product I have for blending out the edges of my eyeshadow. It gives that seamlessly blurred fade out that can sometimes be trick to achieve without messing up or changing the color of the darker shade you are blending. This is truly HG status for me and I will be stocking up!
I'm surprised this one doesn't have better reviews. I really like using this as an every day kind of shadow. I use this on top of primer, and then usually use other shadows on top. This is a great base color, depending on your skin tone. I'm nc20-25, and this does a nice job of evening and brightening my skin tone. I like that this is not too yellow or too orange in tone for a neutral light color. For those with eyelid discoloration like me, this does a great job of helping out either as a quick color for the day or a base for other colors. I always apply these shadows with my finger. They really do stay on all day and don't really wear or wash away during the day. I wasn't quick to believe the hype on these, but they really are great!
This is probably the most boring Infallible, but I digress: this baby is one of my favorites! It's that perfect 'wakey wakey' base shadow to brighten up my tired, sleep-deprived eyes. I find that I can't use this with a brush like I can with my other Infallibles. This particular one MUST be applied with fingers, and I seriously think it has something to do with the warmth of the skin, and the formula of the matte shadow. When applied that way, it just makes for a much smoother application, but applied with any brush, it looks very chalky and my eyelids look like they aged about 50 years. Not pretty.
This is a cream ivory shade that is just a hair lighter than MAC's Brule/ WnW Brulee. This is better than a Paint Pot, because this can double as a primer, bonds itself to the skin like nobody's business, and does not BUDGE, or crease, for the entire day. I seriously think there's magical fairy dust hidden in the depths of this eyeshadow, or SOMETHING, because this stuff is the bomb-diggity! Ok, when I use this as a base under my other shadows, I come home 10 hours later, and my eye makeup still looks hot off the press, and freshly applied. And I can count on that every time I use this! I can't even 100% rely on UDPP to do that! And I've only ever used my $1 e.l.f. Eyelid primer under this (which I know for a fact is the crappiest primer on the market).
Endless Pearl is a hidden drugstore gem, and I can't believe this fabulous product doesn't have more reviews! I know for a fact that I will NEVER be without this.
I purchased this instead of MAC's Painterly Paint Pot. I went to the MAC store to sample Painterly and there was a hair stuck to it. I left the store w/o trying it. I bought this the next day on a whim. The "pearl" in the name worried me that this would be shimmery. It's not. I find it accomplishes what I was hoping Painterly would: a skin color primer to use under other shadows and to be used all by itself. I applied it with both a cheap eye shadow brush and my fingers with no problems. It's pigmented, doesn't crease, and it lasted all day on me (8 hours) in 91 degree heat. (I was outside at the park in the beating sun with the kids and then I painted my living room) It stayed put!
I agree with the other reviewer, I wish the other shades were matte-ish like this one.
