If I ever spot a brand new Goldmine shining in its Gorgeous Gold Glory at a L’Oreal cosmetics counter in Singapore with a 20% discount,


I took these pictures at Toa Payoh about 2-3 weeks ago. I asked whether they keep stock and the SA said yes, they don’t restock the shelves in case of theft (=.=”).

By the way, the colors used to create Fan Bing Bing look are not available here. I don’t even know what shades they are. =(

But here are the swatches of L’oreal Color Infallible shades in Singapore.

L-R: Black Onyx, Sahara Treasure, Goldmine, Bronze Goddess, Emerald Lame

Yesterday I was at Holland Village (cue Barberella’s voice) and after swatching them again, decided to finally get Goldmine. The SA said they’re all OUT OF STOCK!


Here’s my take on the 5 available shades of L’oreal Color Infallible in Singapore.

Black Onyx 023

  • Black with silver glitter
  • Looks like Urban Decay’s Creep

Sahara Treasure 021

  • Champagne pink
  • Looks like a lighter version of Urban Decay’s Hustle

Goldmine 027

  • Pale gold
  • I love gold 😀

Bronze Goddess 024

  • Bronze
  • It looks like a common bronze that most eye makeup palettes will have, but when I went through my stash, I realized that this Bronze is actually quite unique!

Emerald Lame

In terms of pigmentation, from most pigmented to sheer:

  1. Emerald Lame (YAYS!)
  2. Bronze Goddess
  3. Sahara Desert
  4. Black Onyx
  5. Goldmine

Actually they’re all pigmented, more pigmented than normal pressed powder eyeshadows, but Goldmine appears to be falsely less pigmented most probably because of its light shade.

I hope to find Goldmine soon. The forbidden fruit always seems the most tantalizing, doesn’t it?
