This eye shadow is FABULOUS!!! I have oily lids, but this formula stays on all day with great color payoff, which is a miracle for me. I love it so much I keep buying more colors. So far I have Bronzed Taupe, Amber Rush, Liquid Diamond, Eternal Sunshine & Golden Sage.

L'Oreal's ad says that this is "Velvety Formula. Fadeproof. Waterproof." and for once, the ad is truthful! I have gone swimming with this on and it stays put until I remove with cleanser.

I'm not a fan of the plastic stopper, so I toss it immediately. My shadow still remains in tact all the way until I hit pan.

If you are on the fence about getting one of these, just do it! They are reasonably priced and unlike any other shadow I've tried (high end OR drugstore.)

This is such a beautiful color with my blue eyes! It is a little dark if I put it all over my lid, so I prefer to use it in the crease or outer edges. I love putting it under my lower lashes, too. I also use this with a small angle brush to pat over my brown eyeliner so set the liner and to also give it a little something. The texture is very smooth and applies beautifully with your fingers as well. This is my only Infallible Eyeshadow (I'd love to get Iced Latte -- it's on my wish list) and I am pleased with the shadow. I think it will last FOREVER!

Wow, is this ever pigmented! I had this in my untrieds drawer and grabbed it yesterday to do a quick look before going out to dinner. I had a base eye color on that was a mushroom color and I wanted a little crease shading. Since I had already bathed and removed my day's makeup before hubs suggested taking me out for dinner I really didn't want to spend time and effort on a full makeup job, so I skipped the brushes and a lot of steps and wanted a natural no make up look, so I just barely touched my fingertip to this shadow and swiped it on my crease. Oh my goodness, but this has a lot of pigment. And I just barely touched it. This would be fabulous for a smoky eye look. It was a little tricky getting a natural look for me since I am fair skinned. The shadow blends beautifully! I have a dozen of these Infallible shadows now and I love them all. I do wish they had some matte ones though as my older skin tends to look crepey with the shimmers sometime. But yeah, I love this shadow and highly pigmented is always good. Preferred actually. My only real complaint with these loose shadows is I can't find a satisfactory way to apply them yet. With long nails I dislike using my fingers to dip into a pot of anything, and it can be rather ineffective if not impossible to even reach the product with long nails, but the brushes and sponge tip applicators aren't the best for this either so I don't know the answer. But I do know this is a fantastic product and I will be buying more!

Love these! I have them in: Amber Rush, Bronze Divine, Sahara Treasure, Tender Caramel, Forever Pink and Bronzed Taupe.

I am no good at describing shades so I will leave that for the experts. ;)

These are all very pigmented, easy to use and have minimal fallout. They go on sale for $6 at Superstore (Canada) which I think is a pretty good price to pay. Amber Rush is impossibl to find in Canada, so I would suggest you pick it up in the US if you have the chance. It's a beautiful colour.
They have great lasting power but I find they do crease on me w/o primer. So primer is a must. I use UDPP.

I like this better than Maybelline's Bad to the Bronze. This isn't as frosty and it is a bit darker which I like. The application is smooth (I use my ring finger) and it stayed on my eyes til I washed it off with Dove soap. Not like Maybellines' which left traces that I had to use makeup remover for. I don't mind the plastic pot. It isn't heavy, it is portable and that little stopper keeps it firm I think.

I uploaded a picture with the Bronzed Taupe alone and over 3 different eyeshadow cream bases to show you how versatile this is...but I couldn't figure out how to print words on the photo :) From Left to Right: First swatch: bronzed taupe ALONE (gorgeous!), 2nd swatch BT over Laura Mercier Metallic creme eye colour in Platinum, 3rd swatch BT over Benefit's Birthday Suit, and 4th swatch (my favorite one) BT over NYX Brightening Eyeshadow Base With Pearl. They are all so pretty and give slightly different looks (actually the Benefit makes it looks a lot different.) For reference, I am Makeup Forever HD #118, Revlon Colorstay Whipped 200Sand Beige, Dior Nude 023.
This is my favorite ds makeup..truly a gem. It is perfect alone as a wash of color and actually I think it looks better that way. Or with a cool brown like UD Tease in the crease. Even if i'm in a rush out the door with 5 minutes to get ready, I can't mess this up. It actually applies BETTER with my fingers, so I don't even have to get all my brushes out...even though playing with them never gets old:) It lasts all day long on me with little fading and zero patchiness. I LOVE it and will definitely buy again!

I used to use Mac eyeshadow but gosh it gets so expensive! I've been trying to find a substitute at drugstores for over a year now but never really liked anything as much... until this product!! The color really shows up and stays on and the sparkle is soo pretty! I'm definitely going to be buying this product in more colors and will be recommending it to my friends.

These are the absolute best shadows in the drug store in my opinion. I own several shades and enjoy them all but I use bronzed taupe the most. With a primer this shadow lasts from 6 AM until at least 6 PM which is great in my book because I have very oily eyelids. Once applied I find that the shadow appears slightly more purple than it does in the pot & I think it works nicely with my brown eyes. I prefer applying this shadow with my ring finger as it deposits more color than a brush does. It is so pigmented that you only need a bit at a time so I think one pot will last me approximately forever.
