L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Endless Pearl Review & Swatches

Here’s an interesting little find! I recently located a L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in the shade Endless Pearl on a special display at Walmart which contained new colors.

I actually thought this was one of the new shades as don’t recall ever seeing it when the product launched at my local drugstore.

What’s so special about Endless Pearl?

It’s matte! Yes! Matte! It’s possibly the only matte shade I’ve seen in the Infallible Eyeshadow Collection. Not that I’m a fond fan of matte shades but Endless Pearl is actually quite a nice one particularly for aging eyes to give them a more wakey wakey appearance.

Take a look!

It’s rather interesting that this could possibly be the only matte finish in the shade line up from L’Oreal. Let’s hope they release a few more for those who love matte finishes.

I’m personally not a fan of mattes but Endless Pearl is one of those must have shades for brightening eyes up. This is a silky creamy shade of light beige. The formula is gorgeous. Silky, smooth, and applies quite beautifully. Unlike the other shades in the range this formula proves very light and doesn’t end up with a cakey, heavy finish. I think we can all agree sometimes the Infallible Eyeshadows tend to get a bit heavy feeling on lids. I had absolutely no issues with this shade in application or formula.

It’s an ideal shade for a fresh, natural look or if you’re wanting to skip heavier eyeshadows and concentrate on lining your eyes dramatically. This is where Endless Pearl comes into play perfectly as a lovely little eye wash.

I want to say this is a new shade but if you check your local L’Oreal display you’ll find it tucked in with the regular Infallible Eyeshadows.

Overall, Endless Pearl is a worthy purchase even if you aren’t a matte lover. It brightens tired eyes up beautifully and creates a soft, pretty look without looking over done.

This one gets a Muse Approved.

Worth checking out.

Do you own it already?

Love it?

Do share!

I purchased this item.

    I don’t think it’s new, I got mine back in March. Agree that it’s a good eye brightener! There is one other matte in the line – Continuous Cocoa – a dark brown. I found that it applied rather patchy, but does work as a liner.

    I saw this, but with the name Pearl I wasn’t positive if it was matte or not. It is pretty, I may check it out.

  • Larie

    I love this on you! So brightening! I have this one, as well 🙂

  • Jessica

    The color reminds me of Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Brulee shadow!

  • kimkats

    Wait – Wut?? The only matte shade is called “pearl”? I think I saw this one yesterday and passed it by because with a name like “pearl” it just hadda be shimmery!!

    **headdesk** will have to go back and check it out again!! They’re gonna think I’m casing the joint…. ;P

    • the Muse

      lol kim! I know it looks shimmery but it is matte. someone mentioned there’s another matte as well, a cocoa shade!

  • sierrablue

    Muse my Dear, I have to ask: What are you wearing on your lips in this picture? It is gorgeous on you 🙂 Love the shadow btw, will have to venture to the drugstore.

  • neutralgirl

    • the Muse

      neutral is that a new shade or part of the general catalog? curious minds ;D

  • Amy Amethyst

    That is a nice eye brightening shade. Very pretty on you!

  • beautybabbler

    I have Endless Pearl, and it doesn’t work for me. 🙁 I was so excited about it when I first got it, but it applies patchy on me and looks cakey.

    • the Muse

      aw sorry beautybabbler…a little primer maybe to smooth the way!?

  • adriana

    I thought it was just me that kinda notice is matte, i say kinda because in the diaplay at walmart u can see trough the packaging that looks different that the other ones, yes it looks matte, and with this review i confirmed it, but i think other 1 or 2 look like these!!

    This shade is known as ‘Coconut Shake’ here in Canada. Go figure! 🙂 Lovely base shade all the same.

  • Donna

    With all the confusion L’oreal has caused with calling the same shadows with different names (depending on the country it is released in), Endless Pearl is also known as Coconut Shake.

    I have 15 of these shadows (no dupes so far) & I am currently compiling a list of all the known names for the same shadow (I live in Australia & these shadows have just been released. I have not bought any shadows here at $21.95 each, all of my shadows were bought from internationsl sources for around $6 – $7)

    I will pass the list on when it’s complete.
