Let me start with this honest note. Very recently, I learnt that not all the eyeshadows from drugstore brands are bad. :D
These days, I just prefer a simple wash of well blended color on my lids. No exaggerated outer V or intense smokey looks. I don’t have the time and patience to create such looks and as I am not aiming for a career in makeup, I guess I can live with that.
I was told by my friends to get metallic shades as they tend to look more forgiving even when left un-blended or inadequately blended. So during that time, I got this beauty from L’Oreal’s infallible range.

Price: INR. 475/-
It is called endless chocolate and as the name suggests, it is a gorgeous bronze (pigment) eyeshadow. It has the perfect metallic finish. Not too shimmery.
L’Oreal’s infallible range of eyeshadows or pigments comes in tiny little plastic tubs. I have tried many eyeshadows from L’Oreal and for me, they were all average. This one on the other hand is perfection in a tub.
The tub has a black plastic lid that can be easily taken off. I guess it is provided to keep the pigment intact.
Pigmentation and staying power are very good and if you are a working woman who is always in a hurry, this eyeshadow is a must have.
The pigment is so easy to work with. I just pat it down on my lids and blend the corners using a light brown eyeshadow. It looks perfect and pulled together.

I did face negligible fall outs when used with a brush. But that’s okay.
I wore this eyeshadow during one of my shopping sprees with mum and it stayed put throughout the afternoon in Chennai’s climate. And did I mention that I went shopping at pondy bazaar and not an air conditioned mall?
In my opinion, it will suit every one irrespective of their skin tone.
