L'oreal Burning Black

L'oreal's Infallible Eyeshadow in Burning Black is described as "a burning, incandescent black". Does not tell much about the colour but it is a dark burgundy with specks of red glitter. 

L'oreal claim the Infallible Eyeshadows to be "Ultra-intense colour, up to 24 hour long-lasting hold and velvety soft feel.", "a hybrid powder texture, a luxuriously creamy eye shadow. Intense colour in just a stroke. The formula is both water resistant and smudge resistant and does not run into fine lines around the eyes."

Fortunately, this is a product which lives up to its claims... for the most part. Not too sure about it being water resistant and I am pretty sure it's not smudge resistant. It has a very interesting texture - a loosely pressed eyeshadow (not as loose as pigment), feels really creamy and smooth. It adheres well, very pigmented and easy to blend. It comes with a stopper/conserver which helps to prevent the eyeshadow from breaking loose and getting messy.

Here's a heavy swatch:

Not sure about it being able to last as long as 24 hours but it does last more than at least 8 hours, without creasing or fading. The pictures below show my makeup after a long day out. My camera ran out of battery so I couldn't take a picture when I did the makeup in the beginning. I took pictures of it only when I got home that night. My blusher and lipstick were already gone by then but the eye makeup stayed put.
