L’Oreal La Couleur Infallible Eye Shadows in 026 Golden Mahogany. Review and Swatches

Remember my post about L’Oreal Color Infaillible Eye Shadows in All Night Blue?

I liked them so much that I wanted to buy more shades and when I was looking for swatches on-line I came across this post (definitely take a look!) and knew that I had to get 026 Golden Mahogany.

But L’Oreal has a strange system, I mean they have different shades for different countries and sometimes the names of the shades are different, too. Unfortunately,  I couldn’t find Golden Mahogany at my local L’Oreal counters.

I tweeted my disappointment the other day and… I was shocked but lovely Marija (who has a blog) got it for me as a Christmas present. That was such an amazing surprise, thank you Marija, you definitely made my day.

I won’t repeat myself, so if you want to know my thoughts about the quality of these eye shadows take a look here. But I want to tell you about the colour.

Based on the swatch that I saw I was expecting a true red shade but what did I get instead? Let’s take a look at the swatch, shall we?  Yes, it still has reddish/coppery undertone but it’s definitely not red. Maybe these shades are different for Northern America and Europe, I don’t really know… .

Don’t get me wrong, I totally love this colour but I was expecting something different.  I totally loved wearing this shade and will definitely use it a lot in the future but I still would like to get the red shade.

Next shades that I plan to get? Bronze Goddess and Eternal Black!

  1. Hi Marina,

    I haven’t used these ever, but I have heard good things about them. How do they compare to other cream shadows – MAC paintpots? MUFE Aqua Creams? Chanel Illusion d’Ombre? Benefit Creaseless Creams?

    Ta v much!

      Hi lovely,
      These are not really cream, they have a very creamy powder texture. I’ve heard they are similar to Armani’s eye shadows but I haven’t tried those.

    This shade would look so gorgeous on green eyes! The only thing that keep me away from these is their price in my country- 12,5E is way far the 7 dollars that these are charged in the US :(

    I’d pay more for them just to get the shades available overseas. They are about $8 here, but the shades are very limited. I want Bronze Goddess from a limited collection and now Golden Mahogany. :)

      I know, Kristi :( At my local L’Oreal there are like 6 or 8 shades so I have to get some shades I want from other counties, unfortunately. In fact I’ve just asked a friend to get two shades for me!
