Sick Face featuring L'Oreal Perpetual Purple Infallible Eyeshadow

Blah, I'm sick. I think I have strep throat. We'll find out when I go to the doctor tomorrow. I haven't worn makeup in a couple of days, and I thought if I put some on today, it might make me feel better. It didn't, but at least I had fun playing with it.

In the photos below, the purple color on my eyelids is L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Perpetual Purple. I spent years being a makeup snob and not wearing anything from the drugstore, but people have been raving about a few different drugstore brands lately, so I decided to test the drugstore waters, and I'm so glad I did. I now own a number of L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows and Maybelline Color Tattoos, and one Maybelline Bouncy Blush with a couple more ordered and on the way. They are all phenomenal products.

I actually have a few favorites among them, but today, my favorite is this Infallible Eyeshadow in Perpetual Purple. The Infallible eyeshadows are somewhere between a cream and a powder. You can apply them with your finger, but to get a ton of good, deep, rich color, I prefer to use a brush to pack it on and then smooth it over the lid.

Now that I think about it, I should do a post with all of my new and awesome Maybelline and L'Oreal products because I'm so impressed with them. I'll try to do one soon.
