Beautiful, perfect champagne color. I do have so many shades like this now though. But these shadows are gorgeous and apply like a dream. The only down side for some might be that it is shimmery (not glittery, but not matte).
This is the prettiest eyeshadow I've ever come across!! I was originally going to buy Maybelline's Eye Tattoo in Barely Beige which is a similar champagne color, and I've heard and read so many good things about it - it's a part of their fall limited editions colors - I went to three different stores, and none of them had it. I was bummed out, so I went to the L'oreal section because I knew they had a similar product that I've never checked out before - and I saw this color. I swatched it on my hand, and it is soooo gorgeous, it's such a frosted illuminated color, I adore it. It's very creamy and smooth in it's consistency, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to buy it or not. The second I stepped outside (it's a gorgeous warm sunny day in Seattle) my hand was glistening under the sunlight, I've never seen such a pretty color in my life! I immediately turned around and went back inside of the store to purchase it. I love this color! It's very similar to Urban Decay's "Sin", or "Booty Call" but with a lot more shimmer - A LOT. My new favorite eyeshadow! This is perfect with naked in the crease, or a light brown color, some winged eyeliner, and a red lip! I loooove this. I'm so happy I tried it out. I'm def gonna try out some more colors now - they have a really wide range of colors. It's like a pressed powder and super dense, which is different for a "24 hour" lasting shadow and I like it a lot.
Love putting this on my lid then naked all over the lid and crease! The product is so neat and I definitely want more colors!
I just purchased this and I LOVE it as an inner corner highlight. I'm very pale, so a lot of the lighter colors that often get recommended as highlight shades just don't show up on my skin with the same "umph" as on people with more color. However, this may be my holy grail inner corner highlight color. I tried using a pencil brush to apply, but poking it in the powder didn't pick up much product. I found the best way to use this was actually to just use a finger and pat it on my inner corner and then blend with a pencil brush that had a bit more product on it. I also tried using both a synthetic shader brush and a dense dome shaped brush to pick up product to use under my brow bone and ran into trouble with the powder almost packing down and not being loose enough to pick up. When pressed down on, mine almost felt... I don't know, wet? Clumpy? Like it almost had a mousse or cream consistancy. Very strange. It's very very hot and humid (been raining cats and dogs all day) so that may be why the powder is clumping a bit. Has anyone else run into this problem or did I just get a weird one?
NC25 for reference. This is a frosty champagne/beigey highlighting shade. When I first did an FOTD with this shade I used a eye shadow brush and it went on lightly and not very pigmented. It was appropriate for a day time look I think. When I tried my FOTDs after that using my finger to pat it on it went on much, much heavier. Better for an evening look in my opinion. It deposited more pigment and had a heavy sheen like Stila Kitten & MAC Nylon. I nabbed my shadow up for a mere $4.16 after using a $1 coupon. Im so glad I tried this because now I dont need to hyperventilate when I run out of Stila Kitten or MAC Nylon as they are harder for me to come by anymore. This is my first time using these Infalliable eye shadows and now I want to collect them all! I actually dont mind the odd packaging with the press?? type contraption. continued >>
thank u fellow makeup alley reviewers!! i wud not have tried this if not foor ur positive reviews seriously! in th past to brighten and add glow i have used stila kitten mac nylon or vanilla elizabeth arden sherbert nyx revlon peach sorbet wnw brulee ...none of which gave me the brightening effect i wanted either faded pinky making my eyes look tired or too light and cool\chalky making them look more swollen or puffy too matte too glittery clubby looking...this is perfect!!! ill admit it takes lil practice appying to get a smooth effect. i have found a memory type foam smudger tip type applicator does the trick for my corners and under eye and a flat brush mixed with my revlon matte single peach sorbet for the entire lid and above my eyebrow makes my eyes pop!!! luv it and more then half the price of higher end brands with lesser results...try it
My favorite eyeshadow to date. Not only is it a great product but the price is reasonable and it's very convenient to buy since it's sold in all drug stores. The lasting power is great. It lasts me hours and hours without creasing or running even though I have oily skin. I love this color in particular. It looks good on most skin tones and works perfect to brighten and highlight eyes. A little goes a long way.
Oh. My. Goodness.
This stuff goes on with your finger, and be careful, you only need the teeeeniest amount for a bit of color, and it's gorgeous, and it lasts, and it's sparkles and gorgeous eeep! Will buy again, but with this color payoff, I'll never run out.

I am happy with this color as either an eyelid highlight color or an over lid wash color. This color is very similar to MAC Phloof. This is a frosty champagne color that has a slightly cool/pink/silver tone to it. 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 a light, white-champagne shimmery color. I love using this as an inner corner highlight as well as a wash over the lids. It makes me look awake and bright-eyed. I can wear this shadow on its own and it will last all day, which says alot, considering my eyelids tend to be very oily. I purchased this for around 6.99 at Wal-Mart, and feel the price is good considering the quality you get. I wouldn't recommend this for a browbone highlight, since it is very frosty.
