L’Oréal Paris Wear Infinite Pressed Eyeshadow – 901 Sweet Chemise May 26, 2012

Today I bring you the L’Oréal Paris Wear Infinite Pressed Eyeshadow in 901 Sweet Chemise that I received in my May Look Bag.So, I’m getting a little confused about the Look Bag items.  Last month I received the Laura  Mercier moisturizing water, which was using the title that was now an outdated product.  Before the April Look Bag was even sent out, Laura Mercier had already changed the name of the product and was marketing it as something different.  This month I received the L’Oreal Paris Wear Infinite Pressed eyeshadow, and that seems to be a discontinued product as well.  On the L’Oreal websites they no longer carry a Wear Infinite Pressed Eyeshadow anymore.  Upon searching for the Wear Infinite  Eyeshadow, I found some items for sale that were claimed to be discontinued and were being sold as such.  This product does not seem to be something that is available for purchase any longer.

I’ll still try it out though.  This pressed eyeshadow is a light goldish yellow.  It does feel smooth and not chalky.  On my skin, the color is not very obvious so when I use it I have to use it as a highlight color.  I have tried it a few times since I received it, and it is okay, for a drugstore brand.  Using a primer, the shadow lasted for about 6 hours before it started creasing and fading.  The performance is not amazing, but for the price points that L’Oreal eyeshadows are sold for this performs adequately.

Would I buy this product again?  Probably not, I have lots of eyeshadows that I really like in a plethora of colors so adding less amazing products to my collection isn’t something I plan to do.

Well I finished the sample?  Yes, I will continue using this color on whenever it seems like it would go with the look I’m trying to create.

Here’s the breakdown:

Sample Size:  0.08 oz
Full Size:  0.08 oz
Full Size Price:  $3.00
Sample Value: $3.00*            This price is based on the items I found for sale on sites that sell discontinued L’Oréal products.

L’OREAL Wear Infinite 320 Greens Review August 5, 2011

Its Friday!!! Yay, as RB says “Fun Fun Fun Fun, Lookin forward to the weekend” ok enough with you-tube songs.

Today I bring you something from my stash that I had BEFORE I discovered Sephora – yes I know Sephora existed before I discovered it – ok bad joke.  Yes, back to my drugstore beauty products phase (from when I was a kid to ~6 months ago), I like the “match your eye color” stuff since I love my eyes, and I  like making them pop, and while I know the basics of a color wheel I am by no means an artist – so they are helpful. I picked out the “L’OREAL Wear Infinite Studio Secrets Professional Eye Shadow” in 320 Greens. It claims to be for Green/Hazel eyes. I know my pictures kinda stink but my eyes are GREEN and many companies like to clump that into Hazel with Green – but that’s far better than the ones that pretend Green Eyes don’t exist *thanks Smashbox*.

Ok, first, that name is far too long to write every time so I’ll call it 320 Greens. 320 Greens is a 4 color compact that contains 0.04 oz of each color, helpfully numbered to assist with those who are makeup challenged.  I don’t use this compact a lot, but it has made it into my purse a good 20 times, so you can see from the photo that while the case is still in one piece the “pretty” chrome detailing now looks ugly.  Why on earth would you put your product in a package that will look bad LONG before the product is used up. Anyway, this case is very small, small enough for a pocket – as you will see below with a quarter as a reference. These are smooth to the touch but not easy to get a lot of color from and they come with a sponge applicator. I can’t quite describe the finish – somewhere between matte and shimmer, like the back side of a piece of satin.
