One-Shadow Eye Look featuring L’Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in “Amber Rush”


Every so often, I stumble across a shade so beautiful that it can be worn on its own for a minimal makeup look that still packs a punch.

I love those shades. MAC’s “Patina” is one for me – just the right a mount of eye-brightening and subtlety.

L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in “Amber Rush” is one such shade – and it’s so gorgeous that I just had to share.

There’s a lot of buzz about these shadows – and this shade in particular. I had hesitated to try it because they’re not cheap by drugstore standards, but the formula is so interesting (and good!) that I see why they’re priced in the $9 range.

It’s a loosely pressed pigment, essentially. I believe MAC came out with a line of pressed pigments a while ago that are reminiscent of these, except the L’Oreal ones are so loosely pressed that they come with a little stopper that they tell you not to throw out. Because the pigment’s been pressed, there is very little fallout during application.

The shade itself I can really only describe as rose gold. “Rose gold” is becoming the new “taupe” in the beauty world – when there’s a vaguely bronzey shade, bloggers describe it as rose gold. But seriously, “Amber Rush” looks like it’d be right at home in the Naked 3 Palette – it’s a pinky golden bronzey situation that just looks effortlessly pretty on the eyes. It’s brightening but not distracting, and worn alone it doesn’t look incomplete.

On the rest of my face, I wore: Hourglass Brow Pencil in Dark Brunette, NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light, Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder, CoverGirl Queen Collection Bronzer, Urban Decay Perversion 24/7 Liner (applied with a brush), CoverGirl Bombshell Mascara, and Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Picnic in the Park.
