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.
