L’Oreal Silver Sky Infallible Eyeshadow ($7.89 at Harmons drugstore) is one of six brand new L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows launching for Spring 2014 in drugstores now.
I’m a little confused whether or not these are limited edition or if they’ll become permanent. But if you recall last year we saw similar displays around this time of the year and the shades in that display became part of the permanent collection and since they didn’t technically name this collection I have a feeling that will be the case with these colors.
Let’s take a look at Silver Sky.
But upon closer inspection Silver Sky is considerably more sparkly and a truer silver where as Primped and Precious is more gray based. The texture of Infallible Eyeshadow is considerably more packed in this color so you aren’t kicking up a bunch of chunky glitter or eyeshadow when you press a brush into it. I find finger application or using a sponge tip applicator to pack color on is more of a mess free way to apply and it’ll minimize fall out. A regular brush tends to contribute to fall out with these shadows. I don’t really endorse finger application due to bacteria but applying with a sponge applicator and blending out with your finger minimizes fall out and shimmer overload.
Silver Sky is a very bright and true silver. It almost has a liquid metal finish with a good deal of frosty sparkle on lids. If you sheer it out I think it makes it more wearable as applying too much makes it look very frosty and very sparkly which is a bit overdone in many cases. Pairing it with black makes for a very lovely smoky eye look.
The color is very full on but it’ll be understandably a shade that many will likely love you just have to use a lighter hand during application!
Look for it now at drugstores.
