I’m very late to this party, but we don’t get these here and I got these months ago but never really reviewed them. I got whatever I could from a really old Multiply shop. Luckily, they had Amber Rush in stock, which is one of the colors I was dying to try.
These came out around the time that the Maybelline Color Tattoos came out, so a lot of people mistook them to be similar products. The Color Tattoos are cream eyeshadows, whereas the “Infallible Eyeshadow contains ultra concentrated colour pigments, for an intense colour finish and up to 24 hour long-lasting hold.”
Essentially, these are pigments that seem to be pressed (?) or just packed really tightly. I got, L-R: Amber Rush, Golden Sage, and Sultry Smoke. SS is the only matte color among the three.
All aligned together like that, I’m reminded of the NARS Trio, Delphes, although this is much, much more pigmented. On the whole, I really like the quality of these eyeshadows. You have to apply the least possible amount of pressure and you take away a lot of beautiful color. They’re also very easy to use. They blend really well and they go well with cream and powder eyeshadows.
When you add too many layers, though, the shimmery shades tend to make your eye look a little bit crepe-y, so watch out for that.
Here are some pictures where I’ve used them.

My firm favorite among the three is Amber Rush, but I am slowly loving Sultry Smoke, which I didn’t think I would like all that much. It’s a great neutral matte that can cut out too much eye-shine.
Unfortunately, L’Oreal is not cruelty-free, which has hindered me from buying any more of these Infallible Eyeshadows. They are one of the best eye products I own from the drugstore—better than some of my higher end makeup—but I can’t bring myself to buy any more shades, just because of their animal testing policy. Hopefully, L’Oreal is on the way to cutting out animal testing completely.
I purchased my Infallible Eyeshadows from a a now-defunct Multiply store.
