Review: Sahara Treasure 24hr Infallible eyeshadow

by - March 12, 2012

It’s not a cream, it’s not a powder. It’s a curious blend between the two. The L’Oreal Infallible 24hr eyeshadows are super vibrant. The testers I swatched at Shoppers Drug Mart were highly pigmented and creamy smooth like butter. But they were also SUPER shimmery. Like BAM - I am going to the disco – metallic - shimmer. So I put them back and went on my way.

A week later, I had a $3 off coupon for a L’Oreal Infallible product. When I first picked up Sahara Treasure, the colour in the glass bottom reminded me of cork. But when I swatched it, it came across as light gold shimmer. The only gold eyeshadows I possess right now are from my Naked palette and Gaelic Gold from my MAC Ice palette, so I thought I would try this one.

The packaging states these are 24hr, waterproof and creaseproof. It’s a pressed pigment which is why the stopper is required – to keep the shadow from moving around and drying out. Sahara Treasure felt almost damp to the touch when I swatched it. Weird but cool weird :D. But hey it works. I have only worn it once so far. I found it lasted the whole working day on my lid, with no creasing. I have seen people comparing these to Armani Eyes To Kill but since I have never tried Armani eye products, I won't even try comparing them to that. To be honest I haven’t tried anything else with a texture like these 24hr Infallible eyeshadows.

Pros: very pigmented, good amount of product, bright colours and neutrals available, very blendable, longwearing

Cons: not all shades are available everywhere, a little bit more costly at $8 to $11 CDN each, very shimmery. Are there even mattes available? Each one I swatched had a metallic sheen to it. 

Would I buy again or recommend to others:  Yes I would. I am thinking I might go back and get the navy blue one, Midnight Blue. It looks awesome.

Where to Buy: Anywhere were L’Oreal products are sold.
I am curious as to which one you guys would recommend?
