Priceline had a deal where you buy a L'Oreal mascara and get any eyeshadow for free, so I thought I'd give these Color Infallibles a try when I bought my 4D mascara (meh, it's ok, not the best... mascara that is). Initially I only picked up Hourglass Beige but then I loved it so much that I went back and picked up four more!
They're not exactly cream, they're a weird hybrid mixture between cream and powder and the texture seems like cheaper dupes for the Chanel Illusion D'ombre and Armani Eyes To Kill range. Overall I'm extremely impressed with this range. Well done L'Oreal!
Here are the colours that I picked up. I've used flash in all pics as when I was swatching them the light wasn't that good in order to do flash-less pics. But the colours in real life are just as shimmery, even in natural light.
002 Hourglass Beige
On my skintone it looks more frosted white than beige but I don't mind that at all. This is perfect to highlight the inner corners and brow bone.
006 All Night Blue
This is a stunning frosted deep midnight blue. It's perfect worn as an eyeliner, or to deepen the crease.
015 Flashback Silver
This colour runs a bit towards a lilac silver. It's perfect worn alone all over the lid, it doesn't need a crease or a highlight colour. Perfect.
005 Purple Obsession
I love wearing this colour all over the lid for a super easy purple smokey eye. Of course it can just as well be worn in the crease or outer V, or however you wish to wear it.
009 Permanent Khaki
This is probably my favourite of the lot, it leans more towards sage green than khaki, and is perfect worn on its own. In fact all the colours are great worn all over the lid - they're very easy to either blend out for a softer look, or use a heavier hand to get a deeper colour.
These claim to last 24 hours, but I haven't put it to the test because like a good beauty blogger I wash my makeup off before going to sleep. That said, they do look freshly applied even after 14 hours of wear, as below.

There are a few other colours in this range, so I'm really tempted to go back and pick up some more.
What do you think of these eyeshadows? What's your favourite colour?
