899 Endless Pearl is a pale beige shade. When swatched on my arm, it looks like it has a satin finish with teeny tiny specks of sparkles. However, the sparkles are barely noticeable when applied on my brow bone. It doesn`t have a true matte finish because under direct lighting, it has a sheen to it. MAC Blanc Type is a pale white beige with a hint of pink and has a matte finish. I find that it applies more smoother than Endless Pearl. Regardless, I still like using Endless Pearl as a highlight color. It might look a bit chalky when applied, but once I start blending it, it looks fine. As a lid color, the color payoff is not as good as the other eyeshadows. I need to layer the product in order to get decent pigmentation.
888 Iced Latte is a champagne beige shade with a metallic finish. I love wearing this all over the lids with MAC Swiss Chocolate in the crease and MAC Carbon on the outer v.
997 Eternal Sunshine is a yellow gold shade with a metallic finish. Urban Decay Blunt is lighter and warmer, while Half Baked is darker and also warmer. For those who found Half Baked to be too orange, Eternal Sunshine may be a better option to look into. On my NC30/35, I find Half Baked to be a true gold color without being too yellow or too orange.
890 Bronzed Taupe is a medium taupey brown with silver shimmers and a metallic finish.
333 Golden Sage is a metallic sage green with gold shimmers.
555 Perpetual Purple is a rich violet purple with a metallic finish.
889 Midnight Blue is a navy blue with a metallic finish.
891 Continuous Cocoa is a charcoal grey with a hint of espresso. Just like Endless Pearl, this has a satin finish with teeny tiny specks of sparkles. However, the sparkles are only noticeable under direct lighting. I prefer MAC Carbon because it has a true matte finish and it`s darker, which makes it better as an outer v color for my NC30/35 skin tone.
Bottom Line: I would steer away from Golden Sage, Perpetual Purple and Midnight Blue if you`re an NC30/35 and if you plan on using them all over your lids because they get muddy looking when blended. However, I recommend grabbing Endless Pearl, Iced Latte, Eternal Sunshine, Bronzed Taupe and Continuous Cocoa if you`re a fan of those colors and don`t mind getting minor fallouts during application because the pigmentation and lasting power beats other drugstore eyeshadows by a mile when used with a primer. Hopefully, L`oreal has plans to expand their color range and will release some true matte shades in the future. *products have been given to me by one of my lovely friends
Note: Each L`oreal Infallible 24 HR eyeshadow contains 3.5g of product and is available at Ulta, Target, Walmart and other drugstores for around $7. As with any drugstore product, I would definitely wait for a sale because there is always a buy one, get one half off or even a buy one, get one for free sale.
