L'Oreal Infallible eye shadow - 890 Bronzed Taupe (swatch/review)

Ladies and gents, I am back!
After taking some time away for personal business, I am glad to be back here reading your blogs and blogging away!

There has been a huge uproar in the beauty community about these little pots of awesomeness....what awesomeness, you ask?

L'Oreal Infallible Bronzed Taupe
Here we have L'Oreal's 24hr Infallible eye shadow in 890 Bronzed Taupe.  This lovely shadow comes in a screw top style pot with a plastic "stamper" insert to keep eye shadow fresh and tamped down.  The pot contains 3.5g of product.  I usually see this product retail for about $8.00 USD.

 The feel of this shadow is kind of like a spongy, wet powder.  It is a unique texture but not at all hard to work with.  I have used this shadow both wet and dry and have found no problems using it either way.  I use both brushes and my finger to apply this to my eye.  I find that because of its consistency, it helps in adhering it to the brush and my eye lid.

The color is very much a taupe, but a taupe with tons of versatility!  On my skin tone, I do not find that it leans purple or grey on  me...a soft taupe with bits of brown and golden cast.  I have seen other gals with this shadow on and think that this is a suitable neutral for a lot of skin tones.

The sheen to this product is amazing.  I do not find it to be glittery at all...just a shimmery sheen that looks like wet metal.  I do have to use this with a primer as I have tried it without one and I did experience creasing.  But please do not let that stop you from trying this.  It is a lovely shadow that wears well, works well, plays well with other shadows and different types of primers.

You can find these at Ulta, Walgreens, CVS, RiteAid...but this color has been very popular and sold out quite frequently!

Thanks for stopping by boys and girls!
