Quick & Dirty Swatches of L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows in 15 Flashback Silver, 28 Enigmatic Purple, 29 Smoky Green, 30 Ultimate Black + A Random Spring Day

Hey everyone!

How was your day? Are you suffering from the gloomy Monday syndrome or are you coping just fine?

I had a great day today, mostly because I got up early and got a lot of things done. I took many pictures that I need for future posts (some won’t come up till much later since they need to be tested still). There was so much sunlight that I seemed to have drawn some inspiration, and I hope you’ll like the new photos!

I haven’t had time to swatch all the Dior Vernis yet, so today I’m doing a little filler post. I went to the drugstore and saw 4 new L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows, and I did some quick and dirty swatches for you!

These are 15 Flashback Silver (I don’t believe this is new. It’s just that we didn’t get it till now. It is renamed as 222 Infinity Sky in the US), 28 Enigmatic Purple, 29 Smoky Green, and 30 Ultimate Black. I believe the latter three are relatively new, since I can’t find an awful lot of information about them online. My first impression is that these matte ones aren’t AS pigmented or smooth compared to their shimmery counterparts. They’re still very good, but not exactly to the same extent. I had no problem building them up and smoothing the slight chalkiness out though, so maybe it won’t be a big problem when applied on the lids.

Also, since it’s a filler post, I decided to share some random pictures I took today with you.

Behold Muffin and Tango tangled up in a headlock. I think they might have been fighting for the patch of sun, but it could just be Muffin getting bored. I took the pink paper out of the Caudalie tote I got last week because they sometimes play with/sit on it.

This is Tango getting his tum tanned. He eventually flipped over so that he could tan his back lol

Since the weather was fantastic, Dr. D and I went on a walkie in the neighborhood. The cherry blossoms are blooming here! Spring really has come!

Voila, just a little something to keep you entertained until I get the time to swatch/review something properly (I’m aiming at tomorrow though, so it won’t be long). I hope your week is off to a great start!

Sunny, your beauty culture translator xx

PS: What do you guys think about this kind of posts? Would you like to see it from time to time or not at all? Of course I won’t do a filler post twice every week or something, but sometimes when I’m having a good day and I have some random bits and pieces of my life in photos, I would also love to share with you! Let me know in the comment section below whether occasionally you’d be entertained by a post in the same vein or not šŸ™‚

    • Yay Teri, I’m glad you like it! I was lucky to snap that one non-blurry shot of the fight though. I think they stayed still for some seconds to ponder where they were going to take it hehe. The silver one is a little taupe-y. You should swatch it sometime! xx

    • Hey Natasha, it IS a headlock lol. Tango has a lot of sibling love, but sadly I can’t say the same for Muffin. She’s still young and she needs to play, so she’s always provoking her brother!

  1. oh my goodness! Your cats are so adorable, especially the chubby one. He’s HUGE and soooo cute. I just wanna squeeze him. More pictures of your cats please! =)

    • Hey Joyce, thanks! Tango will be very happy he’s got one more on his team now! I love to rub his fat tum, but obviously he’s not a fan so he would start struggling like a flipped-over turtle lol

  2. Love the cats.. I should come play with them sometime.
    Your photography skills are improving vastly, wait till you get that new camera!
    No stopping you then šŸ˜‰

    • Yes you should come, Phil! My house is quasi-clean now and it should stay this way for a little while šŸ™‚

      I’ve been making an effort to observe other people’s pictures, and I THINK I have a better idea now. Too bad I wasn’t born visual at all, but I do have the gift of gab lol

  3. Hi!! Looks nice & sunny! šŸ™‚ that’s cool you get more matte shades! Also flashback silver looks so pretty in your swatch – like a taupe-y silver! It didn’t seem like the infinite sky one or whatever would look the same but now I’m super curious!!

    • Yes it is nice and sunny! I’m solar-powered so I haven’t needed a lot of sleep!

      Flashback silver is indeed a little taupe-y. I don’t think it’s too similar to Infinite Sky at all (that one is a light blue)! It does have chunkier shimmery particles, but because of the texture I don’t reckon there will be too much fallout. You should swatch it when you get the chance!

      • Oh, in your post you mentioned that it’s renamed as that? I’m confused lol. How do you like the flashback silver? I saw it in a Loreal HK youtube application video once and it looked pretty! (Not sure how i ever found that lol)

      • Oops sorry, I got this one and Unlimited Sky mixed up! Flashback Silver is very smooth and pigmented. It does have larger shimmery particle, but because of the texture I don’t think there will be an awful lot of fallout. I actually REALLY need to lay my hands on one of these like tomorrow :p

      • i got flashback silver on thursday before leaving canada! (and enigmatic purple!) wohoo i was so excited that I remembered they were available there. Yay.

      • YAY! I think only the US gets them with different numbers/names, so I’m glad you found them in Canada! Do a look or two soon šŸ™‚

      • I’ll try! šŸ™‚ Yeah, I looked at the shades and some of them were familiar but these two are definitely different than the US shades!

    • Yes I did! I was playing with different layouts and found this one looks pretty clean. I’m also in the process of designing a new header, and it’ll probably be done next month! xx

  4. Aw, I love the filler post… cats, make up and Spring blossoms? It doesn’t get any better than that! Sigh, I can’t wait until I have a nice camera to take better pics…
