I've always been a fan of drugstore makeup, and these are no exception. L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadows are priced at $7.99 for .12oz, which is rather standard for drugstore prices, but can be had for much cheaper during the weekly sales. I don't really know how to describe the texture of this product, it's very smooth, soft, and creamy, but it's also a pressed powder. It literally squishes down a little when you press them, which is weird, but cool. They're very easy to use with your fingers, and unlike most shadows, these don't necessarily require a brush for better application. I'm probably going to reach for these on my lazy days.

On first glance, I thought that I would like "340 Dive Right In" more, it looked like such a beautiful aqua with a slight purple-ish shift, but unfortunately, it applied very sheer and frosty and didn't have as strong of a duochrome that I thought it would. "343 Cherie Merie" however, pretty much knocked my socks off. It's a beautiful smooth orange color with really nice pigmentation. Oh Cherie Merie, where were you when I was looking for orange eyeshadow last year?

As you can see in the swatches, "Dive Right In" is very sheer, in the flash picture, you can see where the NYX milk was. The funny thing though, is that these colors seemed to blend with NYX milk instead of sitting on top of them, which can be useful if you wanted a frosty white with slight blue tones or a paler orange. These shadows, especially "Cherie Merie", are also pretty long lasting, I had trouble getting it off with water and paper towel and had to reach for my makeup remover. Gold star.

Have you tried these shadows before? What are your favorite colors? Thanks for joining me today!
