Wearing Lâ€™OrÃ©al Paris Infallible Eye Shadow in Endless Sea
I’ve been kind of feelin’ the spirit lately with my eye makeup, you know, wanting to wear looks with 20 steps involving primer, 10 different shades of eyeshadow, liner (pencil, liquid, gel AND cake) and false lashes. Basically any and all eye makeup I can get my furry little hands on.
SIDE NOTE: And I’m so not kidding about the fur! Here’s what nobody tells you about your dirty thirties: they’re hairy, as in you start noticing hair growing in odd places (LIKE ON YOUR FINGERS), and suddenly questions like, “Is it faux pas for a woman to shave her hands?” cross your mind.
Ahem! Inside voice, Karen.
Right. But what about those days when Tabs is blowing up my phone with “urgent” pet assistant requests, like, “Please alphabetize my gravy cans, thanks!” and I have the inkling, but don’t have the time, to indulge in complicated eye makeup?
Well, there’s always one of the six new Lâ€™OrÃ©al Paris Infallible Eye Shadows ($7.95 each).
Liquid Diamond, Golden Emerald, Endless Sea, Glistening Garnet, Bottomless Java and Smoldering Plum join 12 existing permanent shades in Lâ€™OrÃ©al’s faboo Infallible Eye Shadow line of long-wearing, easy-to-blend powder shadows so satiny smooth that they make velvet jealous, and so shimmery that I keep expecting cherubic angels to emerge from the clouds and say, “DAYUM, GINA!”
And did I mention they’re long lasting? Worn with a primer, they cling to my lids for 8-10 hours without creasing.

Big statement eye makeup is a breeze with these. All it takes is just a few swipes.
This morning I blended two layers of Endless Sea, the shimmery teal, on bare lids, concentrating most of the color in my outer V, and then swept a single layer along my lower lash lines to make things POP!
A quick date with a lash curler and two coats of mascara later, and I was ready to tackle Tabsâ€™ latest request to, “Call Channing Tatumâ€™s people, and set a time to discuss the choreography for our new movie.”
