Yup, you read the title of this post right. L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Magnetic Coral. Are you “oooo’ing and ahhh’ing” yet?
This shadow is part of the L’Oreal Cannes Collection that was inspired by the bright lights of the Cannes Film Festival.
For someone who has such a love/hate relationship with L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow you’d think I’d avoid purchasing so many but I couldn’t resist Magnetic Coral.
Come on, I so needed this one!
Magnetic Coral, sadly, isn’t available in the US. I had a friend of mine pick this up from England as I had this instant lemming when I heard there was a coral shade available of Infallible Eye Shadow.
This is the first time I tried out the European version of Infallible Eye Shadow and I have to say the formula feels a little differently than our version. I find these lighter, looser in texture, and silkier. The texture has a soft, mousse-like feel that applies lovely on lids unlike our version which sometimes goes a bit heavier and cakey on lids. I think my photo below shows how much smoother the shadow is on my lids compared to past photos I’ve taken with shades from the US.
Magnetic Coral is a bright shade of coral with hints of peach. I absolutely adore this color as I’m all about corals, tangerines, peaches, etc..lately!
Count me surprised that Infallible Eye Shadow has captured my interest again as I might need to haul more of the shades from England as this formula is far more forgiving than the one we have here in the US.
Overall, I’m hopeful Magnetic Coral will be launched at some point on our side of the pond.
If you’re really lemming it I’d suggest E-bay perhaps? Or if you have friends or family in the UK perhaps they can grab it for you. It’s well worth the effort of tracking it down!
