Pressed pigment shadows have never been something I gravitate toward. I've had some pressed glitter shadows that I love, but that's about it.
When L'oreal came out with these pressed pigments, they were too tempting not to at least try. These are the Infallible Eye Shadows.
When you open them from the back, there is a plastic shield under the top that keeps the shadow tightly compacted in place. Don't throw that piece away!
The two colors I have are Iced Latte and Perpetual Purple.
Iced Latte was calling my name. One, because it references coffee. Two, because the color is gorgeous for either all over the lid or as an inner corner highlight.
I picked up Perpetual Purple because it is the perfect true frosty purple shade, which I don't currently own.
I had high hopes for these shadows, and they did not disappoint. I will let the swatches speak for themselves. It only took one swipe for this much color and pigmentation. Remember to barely tap your brush lightly into the shadow when applying. A little can go a long way with these shadows!
I have worn each of these a few times and they do last a long time with a primer.
Great pigmentation and long lasting. So, if you've also been curious about these, I recommend that you give them a try!
There are 18 shades in this collection, and there are some matte options. If you aren't crazy about shimmery and frosty shades, there are a few matte shades to choose from.
These cost around $6.00. I recommend getting them during a Buy One, Get One 50% sale if you're interested in more than one color. Ulta is having a BOGO sale this week! And you can use the $3.50 off a $10 purchase and essentially get one for free!
