Makeup :: L'Oréal Colour Infaillible - wow!


L'Oréal Colour Infaillible eyeshadows were supposed to be launched in Poland in July 2011. Unfortunately it turned out they are available only in selected stores. They aren't cheap but still affordable and I bought two shades: 004 Forever Pink and 005 Purple Obsession




The eyeshadows are packaged in a sleek plastic jars. After unscrewing the lid, you can see that the eyeshadow is pressed against the bottom with a special of lid which the manufacturer recommends to keep.

The texture is very strange, neither creamy (as Aqua Cream by Make Up For Ever for example), nor loose or pressed. It's sort of a combination of these three types. They feel slightlt damp to the touch but on the skin they look like very pigmented powder eyesadows or pigments.

They literally stick to the skin. No smearing, smudging, creasing - they stay put all day long. And above all, the colour doesn't fade or turn grey, and that happens a lot to me when I use the "traditional" shadows by many brands.

The easiest way to apply these eyeshadows is to use your fingers. If you want to use a brush it's better to choose a synthetic one.








004 Forever Pink is a bit metallic pink with golden sheen. It's great as a highlight colour for my inner corners, browbone or even cheekbones (provided you're really light handed).



005 Purple Obsession is a deep vibrant purple. It's a great colour for smoky eyes and I love to use it to line my eyes.

Fragrance :: The Body Shop, Moroccan Rose EDT


The Body Shop Moroccan Rose EDT is a delicate, feminine and ethereal. You'll find notes of moroccan rose, mimosa, vanilla and musk. As opposed to many rose fragrances it's not powdery at all. It's fresh and graceful and works great as everyday scent. 

Eau de toilette doesn't last long and has to be reapplied throughout the day. There's no EDP so to make the scent last longer you might want to layer other products in this range (body mist, body butter, shower gel, body milk or solid perfume).

Top notes: Rose, floral, spice
Middle notes: Rose, mimosa, orange
Base notes: Rose, cedarwood, vanilla, musk




INGREDIENTS: ALCOHOL DENAT., AQUA, PARFUM, GERANIOL, LIMONENE, CITRONELLOL, HYDROXYCITRONELLAL, T-BUTYL ALCOHOL, LINALOOL, ROSA CENTIFOLIA FLOWER OIL, ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE, CITRAL, EUGENOL, DENATONIUM BENZOATE.
