It’s probably old news that the L’Oreal Color Infallible eyeshadows are finally worldwide (as they should be) but much to my consternation (and I think several others) when they were released in the US not only had the names changed, but there were US exclusives!
I don’t begrudge the US their exclusives, but come on L’Oreal, other people around the world want access to the pretty things too!
Thankfully thanks to some amazing girls on Twitter, namely @beautymoogle, @Mona26, @galpalhi and @shoeshoeshooz, I was able to track down all the “non-dupe” L’Oreal Color Infallibles…. and then of course 3 months later, like everything drug-store I get CP’d, they showed up here. I spotted them in a new display at London Drugs – same numbers and names as the American shades I had tried so hard to find!
Hopefully these swatches help someone though!
Left to Right:
892 Amber Rush
997 Sultry Smoke (This is almost identical to Pebble Grey but as you can see it is not completely matte, hence Nunu and I refer to it as ‘slightly’ less dodgy)
888 Iced Latte (I find this identical to 02 Hourglass Beige but then it showed up on its own as Iced Latte in Canada so I think it’s meant to be a different colour)
Left to Right:
890 Bronzed Taupe
891 Continuous Cocoa (This shade is very nearly matte black, and maybe appear to be so on some skin tones!)
997 Eternal Sunshine (Not a dupe for 27 Goldmine as previously thought)
And a VERY old FOTD for your troubles:
