L’Oreal Cherie Merie Infallible 24 Hr Eyeshadow – Miss Candy
I have been scouring all the drug stores in Brooklyn trying to find the new Maybelliene Color Tattoos that recently came out. So far, no luck! However, the other day I was in a CVS and spotted a display for the L’Oreal Miss Candy Spring/Summer collection which is limited edition.
I don’t normally get too caught up in the limited edition releases from brands, but one particular eyeshadow caught my eye from the collection.
Right now you may be asking yourself why there is a strawberry next to an eyeshadow. You’re right in questioning the mix of fruit and cosmetics, at least in this instance.
The truth is, I thought this collection was called Strawberry Blonde. Wrong I was! There is one eye shadow in the collection which holds that name, and it makes me angry. Why you ask? Because it’s a light iridescent color and I don’t personally think it represents Strawberry Blonde at all! Boo.
So where was I? Right, this particular eyeshadow in Cherie Merie caught my eye and I thought it was a beautiful, and different color to wear for spring and summer. I snagged the last one and headed home!
I personally don’t own anything too similar to this color and I can’t think of anything quite like it. I think it’s a cross of MAC’s Coppering and Daydreaming eyeshadows, but still unique enough on it’s own.
When I went to try this bad boy out, I decided I wanted it to be the focus of the look. I applied it wet (sprayed MAC Fix + on my brush) to my eyelids over a base of Urban Decay Primer Potion and MAC Painterly. I used a warm matte brown through my crease (Brown Script would work great!), and finally MAC’s Shroom to highlight.
If you haven’t given the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows a go yet, do it! They are a pressed pigment eyeshadow and apply beautifully.
What do you all think of this eyeshadow? Love it or think it’s meh? I personally love it and will be wearing it a lot this spring and summer!
Hey, and just fot some laughs (and another shot of the color!) here is me enjoying that useless strawberry.
