I have been reaching for my L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows quite a bit lately, especially the green and taupe shades. Gilded Envy is not a new shadow, but it is one of the newer ones in the Infallible line. I haven’t worn this nearly enough! It is truly a gorgeous shadow; some have stated it is a dupe for Chanel Epatant. I do not have this though, so I can’t compare them.

I prefer wearing Gilded Envy wet as opposed to dry, because it packs more of a punch. The color is a cool-toned green with gold and silver sparkle that is very subtle.
I decided to combine it with the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette (yes, I bought it!).

I’m using a sample of Urban Decay Bittersweet blush. I think it’s a gorgeous color, but I’m still deciding if it’s a must have, as I’m not sure how much I would wear it. The sample has quite a bit of blush on it, so I still have a couple more wears to decide! 🙂 I’m planning on reviewing the Urban Decay Smoky palette too–definitely loving it so far, but more on that one later. 😉
