Loreal La Couleur Infaillible

So I ended up getting these little guys when looking for a new primer and was sucked in by a three for two offer (obviously I couldn't buy the one thing I needed, 'cause that would've been rude. Right? Ok, I just have a problem with spending money!)

I picked up two colours, Sahara Treasure and Time Resist White. Sahara Treasure is definitely my favourite, it is a golden brown colour, and the Time Resist White is very white, which it didn't look in the pan, I was hoping it would be a more creamy colour.


They come with a little black cap that keeps them powder together. They're a very weird consistency, not quite a powder, but not a solid shadow either. After I'd done my look with the White colour I dropped it (sad times) but managed to put a bit of it back together and used the black lid to compress and it looks good as new, just a bit less, so I'm very impressed with that.



So here they are swatched on my hand. As you can see they are very pigmented, and very metallic, the white is a bit too strong on its own for my taste, but I love the look of the Sahara Desert.

I still find that the white is too strong (it hasn't come up in the pictures) but it does look a lot better watered down the with Front Cover Shadow and I'm actually really liking this look.

This still comes off a bit more metallically then I would like, however I find it is a much more wearable colour, and think it would definitely be more eye catching. I think I'm going to try using it as a base when I wear dark colours for a night out, so you may see this appear again (I can feel your excitement!)

They are meant to last 24 hours, but although I haven't tested it out, I don't really see that happening, especially on their own. I wore the white one on its own and it creased in around four hours, but I don't know how they would last if you put more eye shadow on the top?

Anyway, they're a product that ended up being not what I expected, but not horrible either, and I think they will go along nicely in my little collection.

Have you tried these? What do you think?

  1. I haven't tried these, though it's a shame they only last 4 hours. Is that with primer? Or did you not even pick up what you went in for? :p
    Pretty colours though!

    1. No it was without a primer, literally just the colour. I did get a primer haha, but it turns out it's more of a highlighter than a primer haha, so I've had to get another one haha.

  8. I love these little shadows. I agree though that they don't last too long and I find myself constantly reapplying them. But they have a lot of cute options. (:
