Gilded Envy isn't anything new from L'Oreal's Infallible Eyeshadow line. I "discovered" it 2 months ago (took the picture 1.5 months ago, obviously)while L'Oreal was 40% off at Rite Aid.
Gilded Envy is a medium metallic taupe with a green tinge (so it's kind of like antique gold?). The dimension is all lost with the pixelated picture but I promise...there isn't any super complex shimmer that I had to capture anyway. Compared to other Infallible Eye Shadow, Gilded Envy is not as pigmented and blended down to a somewhat sheer silvery gray wash (so my lids eat away all the green tinge).
The special part is that even though there isn't complex shimmer, the sizes of the glittering bits vary in sizes so each reflect like in a different way and create a watery depth to the look. It looks quite interesting worn sheerly and it's a wonderful color to pack on top of any taupe color that are more flat. As always, lasting power of these are not great (on me) but I got primers.
