Review & Swatchfest: L'Oréal Miss Candy Collection Infallible Eye Shadows in Strawberry Blonde, Cherie Merie, and With a Twist

L'Oréal Infallible Eye Shadows in Strawberry Blonde, Cherie Merie, and With a Twist
L'Oréal has come out with more eye shadows in their Infallible formula line in the latest limited edition Miss Candy Collection for the summer. Because this formula is so raved about (rightfully so), and these are limited edition shades, I wanted to get my thoughts on them out asap in case you come across the display and need to make a decision stat!

The entire collection includes candy colored polishes, polish stickers, glosses, and 4 Infallible shadows. I already have a color similar to a shade called "Dive Right In" - a baby blue - that I got while in Canada, so I stuck to the three other shades: Strawberry Blonde, Cherie Merie, and With a Twist. To give you an idea of how the baby blue jives with the collection as a whole, I've included my dupe (Innocent Turquoise) in the mix. EDIT: Lovely reader Dawn let me know that the blue in this collection is closer to Strawberry Blonde's pigmentation with its iridescence. The swatch I have below is probably too opaque to directly dupe Dive Right In. Sorry, Canadians :(

Strawberry Blonde is a light, iridescent pink that is more like a reflect than a solid shade. Worn over a black base, the pink is majorly amplified.
Cherie Merie is a satin peach shade.
With a Twist is a light/medium purple with a blue iridescence. It looks much more subdued when worn dry, is amplified slightly when wet, and goes completely blue when worn over a black base. A truly interesting shade!

As with all of the Infallible shadows, the formula of each shade is smooth (bordering on a creamy texture), evenly pigmented, long-wearing, and all but Strawberry Blonde is opaque. This pressed pigment style shadow is appealing because it satisfies both the loose pigment and pressed shadow lovers - providing ease of use and versatility without the mess. Ultimately, I'm struggling to find something I don't like about these shadows. The only thing that should effect your purchase are the shades you want!
