L'Oreal Color Infallible eyeshadow compared to Armani Eyes To Kill
When I posted about Armani Eyes To Kill eyeshadow #4, I mentioned that L'Oreal Color* Infallible eyshadow in #15 Flashback Silver is quite similar. I bought Flashback Silver yesterday to compare it to the Armani.
The Armani has sleeker and more expensive packaging, in a glass pot rather than the plastic pot of the L'Oreal. There is also a difference in the colour of the two eyeshadows. As I thought, #4 is darker, and speckled with the red/rosy shade. Flashback Silver is a uniform lighter silver.
Swatched, they are still just about different enough to stop me feeling like an idiot for spending the extra £20 on the Armani. If £25 is too much for an eyeshadow for you, Flashback Silver is not a bad substitute for Eyes to Kill #4 at all. I wore one on each lid yesterday afternoon and evening (I didn't leave the house) and the longevity of both eyeshadows was the same on me, with a little creasing and fading after about 6-7 hours (neither formula would last 24 hours on me, but they both did well in the humidity).
Can you tell which is which?
