Spotted, Hauled & Swatched - L'Oreal Miss Candy Infallible Shadow Collection!


**all items purchased by me

As much as I was thinking I would be able to, ahem, take it easy on shopping this month, that has not all.  At least I can say I haven't bought a lot of actual "makeup" products, but I did get the new limited edition Miss Candy Infallible shadows from L'Oreal.  I bought these from Walgreens, 2 at a time.  At the time, they were on sale for buy 1 get 1 50% off.

 Full display at Walgreens

And now for the haul(s):
 342 With a Twist and 340 Dive Right In
These were the first 2 I bought since there was only one of each of these 2 left in the display.  
The top right corner picture has swatches of With a Twist on the left and Dive Right In on the right.
With A Twist is a pretty medium purple with a blue iridescence to it.
Dive Right In is a shimmery light turquoise blue.
Both are not quite opaque, but not super sheer either.

And then a few days later, I bought the other 2 colors:
343 Cherie Merie and 341 Strawberry Blonde
The top right corner picture is a swatch of Strawberry Blonde by itself.
Bottom left corner picture is Strawberry Blonde on the left and Cherie Merie on the right.
Strawberry Blonde is the most sheer, and most iridescent and shimmery, color of the 4 and is a nice light pink with a shimmer that's a touch darker pink.
Cherie Merie is a nice, pigmented coral-orange that has more of a satin finish.

And swatches of all 4 colors:
top left - With a Twist
top right - Dive Right In
bottom left - Strawberry Blonde
bottom right - Cherie Merie

The most pigmented of the 4 is Cherie Merie.  If you get both Cherie Merie and Strawberry Blonde, try overlapping them a bit - so pretty!  Also, Strawberry Blonde reminds me a lot of Urban Decay Aura (pink side) and Dive Right In is similar to the blue side of Aura from the Glinda palette...the L'Oreal shades are the more pigmented versions of the Aura duo shade.

I love L'Oreal Infallible shadows - I think I have all the limited edition ones and a good portion of the core line (I want them all!).  A lot of times, if I'm using it as an all-over lid color I apply it with my finger but they work pretty well with a brush too.

I think that so far, I've only spotted the full collection at Walgreens, but I have seen the polishes elsewhere as well.  

Have you spotted the Miss Candy collection?  Are you going to get anything from it?  Do you like L'Oreal Infallible shadows?
