Description: L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon is a gel eye shadow in a crayon or stick form. This is not an automatic twist-up crayon. You will need to have a separate sharpener for this one.
L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon is fragrance-free and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
The company claims, “Highly pigmented vibrant color. 2 in 1 Shadow and Liner. Smooth Glide formula that lasts up to 24 H. This ultra-intense smudge-proof eye crayon lasts from dawn until dusk and beyond, up to a full 24 hours. The smooth, creamy, long-wearing formula delivers easy-to-wear colour for any occasion. It’s now easy to create endless runway-inspired, colorful eye looks with just one product. Blend multiple colors together or use them individually for a monochromatic look.”
Discussion: I love a dramatic smoky-eye look. As a professional makeup artist, sometimes you have hours to perfect a look and sometimes you only have a few minutes. When I need to create a smoky eye quickly, this is one crayon that helps me get the job done in a flash. I use this under powdered eye shadows to make them last, make the colors pop, and for cut creases. L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon can be used both as a thick eyeliner and an eye shadow base.
These crayons used to come in a full line of matte colors as well as the shimmery ones. Unfortunately, the matte colors have been discontinued and now only the eight shimmers remain. (Why is it that every time I find something I like it gets discontinued?) I have attached a photo of the eight colors that are still available.
Morning Review: Today I’m using the L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon in color number 704 (Midnight Charcoal). I don’t use a primer under this unless the client has very oily skin. This glides on easily and does not tug on the delicate eye skin. I applied this on the upper eyelid up to the crease line. I like to apply this eye shadow with a medium brush rather than directly from the crayon. I also drew a v-shape line at the outer corner and extended it slightly under the lower lashes. You can smudge this for about 30 seconds until it sets. I applied a charcoal shadow on top of the crayon cream. I then finished the rest of the eye makeup using several other products (mascara, eyeliner, eyebrows, lashes, etc.)
Evening Review: After eight hours, the eye shadow looks the same as when I applied it this morning without the need for any touch ups. L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon really makes the eye shadow stay put without fading or melting away.
Because L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon stays on so well, you will need to use an eye makeup remover to get it all off. This will not rinse off with just ordinary facial cleanser.
Overall Review: This is one product that performs just as the company claims it does. They got it right this time.
When I use L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon my nose does not run, and my eyes do not water, turn red or burn. I have never experienced any sensitivities from using these crayons and I have never had any complaints from the numerous clients I have used these on.
Pros: This is an excellent product that serves numerous purposes. L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon is easy to use for a makeup novice and performs well for pros like myself.
Cons: I wish it still came in the matte colors and I would prefer an automatic crayon that does not need to be sharpened. Also, I wish I could find this in more stores without having to order it online.
L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow Crayon is suitable for the following users:
- All users
- Users with extremely oily skin may need to use an oil-blocking primer first.
