One of the joys of living close to a Rite Aid is their legitimate sale. Yeah, most promotion are lame like the buy one get one 50% off (which is essentially 25% off, when you get two) but once in a while Revlon, L'Oréal and Wet n Wild will be 40% off, that's when I start hoarding the items I don't normally buy.
During the last sale, I picked up a few L'Oreal infallible eyeshadows. It's hard to say no to these wonderfully complex damped pigment (at less than 5 dollars a piece!)
I reviewed these (one at a time, oyyy...) so no need to add more. These are silky and pigmented but don't last well on me without a primer (I lived in an extremely humid place). But I think now I moved up here, I can totally get away with wearing them alone.
Smodering Plum - Deep rich wine with matching colored micro-sparkle. Texture is rich in swipe but not refined (like some of their metallic shades) enough to be used as an ultra fine liner.
Liquid Diamond - Silver gray lilac that show up much more purple once on my skin (normally color like this can get really muddy and gray on me). I love using it sheerly as an allover wash or replace a shade in an Japanese palette (if I want something more vibrant on a particular day).
Amber Rush - an intensely metallic one. This rose gold pulls a little more coppery than others(rose gold in my stash). I love it as an lid wash and sometime substitute it for the lid shade in Lunasol Vivid Clear Eyes Pink Beige Collection (to be reviewed) if I want something more intense.
Golden Emerald - Shimmering Ivy with gold and green micro-sparkle the formula is a tad thinner than smoldering plum so it probably doesn't work as fine liner (by itself) either. I might press it on top of pencil liner if I have the time and want to put up the effort.
Bottomless Java - Rich and smooth yellow brown with finer shimmer partices. I didn't wear it on my eyes yet.
Next up, all the limited editions shades I missed out (because of the high price). I even scored two shades from Europe but I don't know how long it's going to take to get here
