New Summer 2013 Limited Edition L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Review and Swatches!

If you read my last post then you know that I have a serious problem with buying Maybelline Color Tattoos. Well that is not my only "beauty addiction"! I am also very in love with the L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. I have been obsessed with these since they first became available. When I found out that there was going to be four new Limited Edition shades for summer 2013 I knew that I had to have them. Silly me forgot to take a picture of the display so I can only show you the actual shadows. They are on a display with the new L'oreal Le Gloss and Candy Nail Decals. If you have never bought or used any of the L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadows check out this post right here to see some shades in the permanent line and how to apply them.
          From left to right: Cherie Merie, With A Twist, Strawberry Blonde, and Dive Right In.

These swatches were done without a primer. As you can see all of these shades are gorgeous. I only had to do one swipe to get the swatches above so the pigmentation is pretty good. Cherie Merie is a deep reddish orange. With A Twist is a purple with a blue undertone. Strawberry Blonde is a light frosty pink with a bit of gold and Dive Right In is a light turquoise blue. I love them all. Strawberry Blonde seemed to be a little bit softer than the others. When I went to swatch that shade it sort of broke up a bit but it is nothing to concerning since each pot comes with a little tool for pressing the powder back down.

None of these shades are like any of the others in the collection or in any other Limited Edition collections. They are all perfect colors for spring and the orange shade is unlike any shade I have seen from a drugstore eyeshadow.

I am so excited to create some new looks with these. I found these at Riteaid for about $6.99 a piece but they are worth every penny!

 This was the look I created with the purple and the pink. I used them without a base so they weren't too pigmented.


  1. These look great! Thanks so much for the review and swatches. :)

  2. For the life of me I cannot get these colors in California. I'm very frustrated. There are a lot of new colors on Boots and London drugs websites but they do not ship to California.
    Can anyone help???? :)

    1. Your best bet is probably to buy them on Ebay. They will cost you about 8 bucks a piece but that is practically store price anyway.
