Description: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow is a highly-pigmented waterproof powdered eye shadow with a nice silky cream-to-powder finish. The shadows do not come with any type of applicator. You will need a separate eye makeup remover to completely take this off.
Sensitivity: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow is a fragrance-free product and is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
I have never experienced any sensitivities from using this eye shadow and I have not had any complaints from clients or testers.

Discussion: I used to love glittery, pearly eye shadows. I still do, but alas as I’ve gotten older, they don’t look as good on me as they once did. However, most of my clients are young models, brides, and performers and bold eye shadows are still a necessity for the looks I create for them. L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow is a very good product that allows me to create professional looks that hold up under the rigors of hot lights, long hours and demanding conditions. I once did a peacock look with these and it turned out amazing.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow was introduced to the market five years ago. I tried one when they first came out and was very impressed with the quality. A few of the colors are a staple in my professional makeup kit. These are kind of a hybrid between a M-A-C loose pigment and a standard pressed eye shadow.
Please note: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow comes with a little plastic press that is on top of the product. When you open the jar, you will see there is a tiny handle on top. Set the press aside on a clean paper towel while you use the eye shadow, but do NOT discard the press. This will keep the eye shadow from drying out and will also help to keep the eye shadow intact.
Colors: L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow currently comes in 24 colors. Sadly, most of the matte colors have been discontinued. The only semi-matte color that remains in the lineup is Sultry Smoke. There are a few colors that I like to use on brides for romantic or sultry looks. These four colors are:
- Iced Latte (Pearlescent Ivory)
- Silver Sky (Shimmery Silver)
- Glistening Garnet (Deep Pearlescent Rose)
- Sultry Smoke (Medium Grey with Slight Sheen)
Product Dupe: If you are a fan of the MAC loose pigment in the color Tan, the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow in the color Amber Rush, looks and performs exactly the same. This is a beautiful rose gold-type of color. It looks stunning on anyone with warm blonde, auburn, or warm brown hair and a warm skin tone.
Morning Review: The texture of L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow is very soft and creamy and it applies easily. I like to use a soft brush with this eye shadow. It is best to start with a very light layer of this eye shadow and add additional light layers if you desire greater intensity. If you apply too much at once it won’t blend nearly as well.
- If you have oily eyelids or you need your eye shadows to stay on for more than eight hours, I suggest using a base or a primer under powdered eye shadows.
- Also, if you spray your eye shadow brush with something like MAC Fix or even water, it will help to prevent fallout and add to the staying power of your eye shadow. (This means to get the brush damp, not soaking wet.) Do not put water or any liquid directly into the pot of eye shadow.
Evening Review: After eight hours the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadows have not faded, creased, or flaked and still look good without the need for any touch ups.
