L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow in Amber Rush ($7.95) is an ultra intense, long-lasting eye shadow that will leave you with dramatic eyes that look gorgeous all day long. No joke: L'Oreal has stepped up the drugstore eye shadow game with this one. 

L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow has a unique powder-to-cream formula. It's technically a powder, but it feels extremely creamy to the touch. This allows for smooth application and a super dense, foiled appearance that I love. 

Once applied, this shadow isn't going anywhere. It looks just as fresh at the end of the day as when it is first applied! L'Oreal claims this eye shadow is waterproof and, while I haven't worn it in a pool or shower, I've found that it doesn't budge when I rub my eyes or splash my face with water. Even if you're not wearing eye shadow primer, L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow won't come off until you hit it with cleanser or makeup remover.

L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow in Amber Rush has unusual packaging. In the photo at the top of this post, the eye shadow is technically upside down. You have to flip it over and unscrew the cap to open it, which then reveals a removable cover. It appears that the cover is there to contain any fallout or messiness.

Then you take the cover off...

Voila!  L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow in Amber Rush is a complex reddish copper with densely-packed shimmer. I was worried the red hues would be too strong, but Amber Rush has a strong silver flash that keeps this shade from venturing into rabbit eye territory.

The sole drawback I've identified is that I experience some fallout when I pack this shadow on heavily. Other than that though, I am very happy with the formula, pigmentation, and wear time of L'Oreal Infallible 24 Hr Eye Shadow in Amber Rush. I love the creamy texture and foiled finish! It's available in 18 shades too, so I will definitely be checking out some more. Eternal Sunshine, anyone?

    1. I've never encountered any testers at a drugstore before, that's really interesting that your store has them. Where do you live?

      You should def check these out! Other than some fallout, I think they're really great.

  3. These are amazing. I have pretty much collected all of them - sad but true. It's an affliction at this point! The newest collection out has some really nice summer shades that look even more like the Armani ones than the permanent shades in that there is a melange of colours in the shadow not just a solid tone in the pot.

    1. Those new shades sound gorgeous! I'm so much happier with the Infallible shadows than the L'Oreal HiP Duos that neither of us liked.
