L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadow - Sahara Treasure

I have seen several blog posts about the L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadows and the majority have raved about them, so whilst in my local boots I decided to pick one up and see what all the hype was about.  There are 12 colours available, good for you if you live near a Boots store that has all 12 in stock.  My Boots had a choice of 4 colours and I eventually decided on Sahara Treasure.



It's very difficult to describe this colour, in the pot it's a dirty gold/bronze/khaki colour, I can tell I'm really selling it to you with that description!

The texture is quite bizarre too, although it is a loose powder it has more of a cream/gel feel to it.


Application for me has been an absolute nightmare.  First of all I tried my usual brush, it looked an absolute mess, it applied in patches and looked caked and uneven.  Next I tried to apply with my finger, although it looked a little better I found that this method caused lots of fall out.  Finally after lots of experimenting I used ELF lid primer, MAC Paint Pot in Painterly and then I used a sponge applicator to apply the shadow, it applied like a dream.  You can build this eye shadow but I prefer to use it as a wash of colour that gives a beautiful sheen.  After a 12 hour shift this eye shadow had not budged at all, there was no creasing and it looked as fresh as it did when I first applied it.

I will definitely be picking up a few more of these now that I have sorted the application method out.

These eye shadows retails at £6.99 but Boots currently have a 3 for 2 offer on L'Oreal products
