L'Oreal Infallible Eye Paints Review

September 27, 2017

If there's one kind of eyeshadow that I have been using non-stop over the past weeks it's these brand new L'Oreal Eye Paints. I kindly received 3 Eye Paints and one Eye Paint primer, in a beautiful PR package, and they've been on my 'awesome makeup to review' list ever since. These eyeshadows are unlike anything I have ever used before, and if you like no fuss makeup you absolutely want to hear what I have to say!

If you're not familiar with the L'Oreal Eye Paints, they basically are cream to powder eyeshadows that instead of coming in a jar, as usual, come in a tube with a dow foot applicator. They are available in 12 different shades (at Kruidvat) and retail for €9.99 each. All the shades in the range go from being fairly neutral to fun and vibrant colors. 

The ones I received are:

- 306 Nudist - a brown
- 307 Sunset Goals - an orange
- 207 Sassy Squad - a purple
- 100 Eyeshadow Base - clear

Even though I find the price point of these Infallible Eye Paints a little high, they have become a staple in my makeup routine simply because they're such easy, one-swipe colors! You don't have to be a makeup pro to make this stuff work, the formula basically blends itself, I love it. I like to apply one or two dots on the middle portion of my eyelid and blend everything with a big, round, tightly packed but soft eye makeup brush. ZOEVA has one that is called the 142 Concealer Buffer and Real Techniques has one called the Deluxe Crease Brush. They manage to blend out the eye paints evenly in just seconds and voilà, your look is done. 

The brown and the orange Eye Paints, Nudist and Sunset Goals, are my favorites! I like to use them alone or together, using Sunset Goals on the entire lid and Nudist in the crease. Both eyeshadows have a satin finish and can either be applied looking very sheer or built up for a more vibrant, pigmented look. If there's one thing however that I do need to emphasize about these Infallible Eye Paints it's that, if you have oily eyelids, you need to wear an eyeshadow base or a primer of some sort. I wouldn't necessarily recommend the eyeshadow base that comes with the line, as in my opinion it is not a must have, but it does work. I've tried setting these with powder eyeshadows but it wouldn't make them any more longlasting, so a base is definitely something I recommend using. 

I like these eye paints, I think they're unique in the sense that I've never actually come across a cream to powder eyeshadow formula like this, ever,  and they don't require much effort to make your eyeshadow look absolutely awesome. I do wish they'd last longer on the lids (for people with oily skin) but as I mentioned before, even a low budget eye primer can fix that issue for you straight away. I'm very impressed with L'Oreal and might even get a couple more shades, I currently have my eye on the L'Oreal Infallible Eye Paints in 102 Irresistible Rose305 Peach me Babe and 205 Cocky Bisque
