L'oreal Infallible Eyeshadow Swatches

L'oreal's Infallible eyeshadows are a product that took me a while to love; at first glance, and use, I thought 'meh, they're alright'. Fast forward over a year and I have a steadily growing collection and I adore them - I have 12 so far!

Smooth, pigmented and with a beautiful formula, these eyeshadows are so easy to use. The almost wet texture helps control fall out so they are superb to apply, as well as giving a lovely foiled effect with the more metallic shades. The darker shades are fantastic used as eyeliner. And what's even better- these wear like iron!

My only issue is that L'oreal has named the UK versions and US/Canada versions differently which is very confusing. There is a wonderful comparison list here. With the swatches I have also listed the corresponding shade name throughout the world.

These are priced at £6.99 and available within the UK in Superdrug or Boots.

And now- on with the swatches!

MUA Powder Blush Swatches: Marshmallow, Bon Bon, Bubblegum, Cupcake, Candyfloss and Lolly

Make Up Academy have recently brought out 6 new blusher shades- Marshmallow, Bon Bon, Bubblegum, Cupcake, Candyfloss and Lolly.

These are only £1 each and are fantastic quality, highly pigmented and a great range of colours. They have also updated their packaging and I prefer the sleeker look of these blushes over the previous style. I also love that they have switched from numbered products to names, and such cute names too!

Two shades have shimmer, Lolly and Candyfloss, the other four are matte.
