I did a L’Oreal make up haul a few months back which I posted about here and I got this L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mono Eye shadow (Iridescent Finish) in the shade All Night Blue. It looked really super pretty to me and I had used it a few times now. Since its quite a dark and shimmery shade I had used it only on a few party like occasions, but that was enough for me to write a review on it!
About The Looks!
The eye shadow comes in a square transparent pot with a black lid. The actual eye shadow pan is round and the shade can be seen from the transparent bottom. The black round lining at the bottom has the brand name and the cap (which actually works like bottom) has the shade name, number, shelf life, etc. The price sticker comes pasted on the sides which I removed. There is lid on top of the eyeshadow for its protection and it says “A Conserver – Keep me”. The packaging is really cute, chic and attractive. Its travel friendly and the lid provided is really of a good purpose.

My views about the eye shadow All Night Blue!
Color – The color is a gorgeous shimmery dark royal blue!! Its beautiful!! Its nor glittery nor has sparkles, but has very aptly said by L’Oreal Iridescent Finish. The shimmer is not gold or silver, its like blue shimmer mixed with the eye shadow pigment. The color is great for intense smokey eyes for night outs, weddings, or parties. You can also use it lightly as just a pop of shimmer and color.
Pigmentation – The pigmentation is insane!! One swipe and you get amazing pigmentation on the swatch. On your eyes, you might have to pat a couple of more layers to increase the intensity. Also using wet brush will increase the intensity of pigmentation on the eyes.
Texture and Formulation – The texture is slight creamy, buttery and slight powdery. It does have quite a bit of fall out though. It glides on smoothly and blends nicely. It doesn’t crease on me at all. However, since its a dark color and has a bit of fall out, you need to be careful. Apart from the fall out, there is no negative point I see in this shadow’s texture.
Lasting Power – Lasting power is awesome too. The brand claims 24 hour stay, which I certainly can agree. During the testing phase, I rubbed off the shadow with a cloth, the intensity did get less but it did not go away completely. It was there, even under water! I could see the color still strong enough and the shimmer too. This color will not fade unless you touch or rub your eyes. It will be there for 24 hours for sure! May be even more, I haven’t tried for that long. 😀
- Applying loads of setting powder underneath the eyes will take the fall out which can be dusted out later.
- Doing the eye make up first and then the rest of the face will be better in such cases.
- Applying an eye shadow primer will help show up the color even more and will also increase its lasting power.
I love this shadow!! I have so many looks in my mind that I want to create using this one. The color is gorgeous! The shimmer is beautiful, its not gritty. Highly impressed with the pigmentation and the lasting power! Wish it had less fall out and that could have made it a perfect eye shadow! But I still love it a lot and would recommend this one to all of you!
