L'Oréal Paris Infallible Eyesahdows Gilded Envy and Always Pearly Pink ($7.99 for 0.12 oz)

L'Oréal Paris recently added six new permanent shades to their (amazing) Infallible 24HR eyeshadow line. Since I've had such good luck with other Infallible shadows, I picked two up! I spotted the new 'Butterfly' display at my local Bed Bath and Beyond. The shades that caught my eye were Gilded Envy and Always Pearly Pink.

See swatches and an Eye of the Day featuring Gilded Envy and Always Pearly Pink below.

Always Pearly Pink is a metallic light pink. It's much more medium pink than my other light metallic Infallible shade, Blinged and Brilliant (Limited Edition). This is a pretty all-over lid shade. Applied dry, it didn't apply as buttery as other Infallibles I've tried, but it's very pigmented. I would recommend spraying some water or MAC Fix+ to get a bolder effect. In the photos above, I placed
Always Pearly Pink in my inner corners and up until the inner half of my eyelid.

Gilded Envy is a greenish-gray with some gold specks. Temptalia calls it an antique gold. Like
Always Pearly Pink, it's not as buttery as other Infallibles when applied dry. I do love the color though. In the photos above, I blended Gilded Envy on the outer half of my lid and in the crease.

Both of these shadows last all day with no creasing.

Are you going to try any of the new L'Oréal Infallible 'Butterfly' Eyeshadows?
