L’oreal 2012 Miss Candy Collection Top Picks - Infallible Shadows in Innocent Turquoise and Sassy Marshmallows

L’oreal’s new Summer collection is out in drugstores and after hemming and hawing over the colors, here are my recommendations.

L’oreal Infallible Shadows in 031 Innocent Turquoise and 032 Sassy Marshmallow. These are the 2 out of 3 shades that I find to be more “worth the dollar”. (P.S. I’m not a huge fan of glosses that aren’t intensely pigmented, so I didn’t pick any of those up.)

The swatches of the 2 shadows are as above; Sassy Marshmallow (left) and Innocent Turquoise (right). 

Sassy Marshmallow looks like a straight-silver here but it’s a little more dimensional than that in real life. It’s an icy blue-toned platinum with subtle specks of turquoise and pink. It might not look like it, but this is the most unique shade of the 3, and I recommend you check it out if you can. This shade can be worn translucent (the vari-colored flecks will show up more) or packed on strong.

The second shade, Innocent Turquoise is more of a straight-up bright, shimmery Turquoise. Despite the white and yellow flecks, this just pulls a pure turquoise, unlike Sassy Marshmallow. The beauty is in the fact that this is a true, intense aqua.

Recommended only if you’re on the market for just such a shade and don’t have anything equivalent.
