L'Oreal Bronze Divine Color Infallible Eyeshadow - Perhaps a dupe for MAC Golden Gaze

Hands up anybody who has tried the Armani Eyes to Kill Eye Shadows?  I don't actually own any but I have played (this is the correct term cause I play with makeup) with them every time I am in Brown Thomas.  Since these cost the same price as a stupid (non - smart) phone I have been a bit wary about buying them.  I have also been looking at the L'Oreal Color Infallible Eye shadows they look like the budget version of Armani but they are still pricey for the chemist costing about €12.00.  At the moment these are on special offer in Boots for approx €6.50.  The perfect time to try.  I picked up two, today Ill tell you about No 024 Bronze Divine.  Bronze Divine is soft and creamy and easy to apply, I first applied with my finger but got better coverage using a brush.  The colour is a greeny/dirty gold some people may not be drawn to it but I think it is a beautiful colour. 

Here it is on the eye, that is all that is on the eye (I have used a primer and tight lined with a brown pencil) the shadow is complex and gives the appearance in the corners that another darker shade has been applied.  It reminds me of MAC's Golden Gaze which I have been longing for ever since I saw it on Karen (Lovely Girly Bits) at the Beaut awards - it was of course sold out by then so I cant do a side by side comparison. 
L’Oréal say that its "Ultra-intense colour, up to 24 hour long-lasting hold and velvety soft feel" which is all true the shadow is so soft and lasted a long (first day) back in work after Christmas.

Please go over and check out Karen's (and her Lovely Girly Bits) looks using MAC Golden Gaze here and let me know if you think it is a good dupe, even if its not a dupe its a beautiful colour and the texture is amazing - stick your finger in a pot today.

P.S. sorry for the lack of posts over Christmas I took the opportunity over the time off to take pictures of various products and NOTD and it seems I accidentally deleted them - I AM A GOBSHITE. Pin It


  1. This is so pretty, I got one of these shadows (in a champagne-y colour) as a gift with purchase a while back and have been debating what shade to buy - I think I may go for this one. I love the texture of these and they seem to last for ages!

  2. Eh that looks like a pa-retty good dupe to me! Next time we're out, you wear that, I'll wear mine and we'll do side by side pics of our eyeballs, k? :)

    I have been hmming and hawing for ages over the midnight blue one of these...

  3. I love these shadows, I've seven of them (though I've either got the blue or purple one twice so six really,) so I'll definitely be adding this to the collection.

  4. i think midnight blue might have been the other one that i picked up (its a blue colour anyway) ill test it and let you know what its like

    i am impressed by these

  5. I think that's a great dupe, I love a good dupe I'm still trying to get a my hands on the essence dupe of Across the universe!
