I admit that featuring limited edition products from Australia may not be the kindest thing to do on an US-based beauty blog – but hey, I bought mine on Ebay, if you love it – there are more available! Shipping is expensive, but the seller combines shipping, and you can also buy Bronze Goddess, which is an exact dupe for Gleaming Bronze, which was a US limited edition, and is one of my all-time favorite eyeshadows (I bought a Bronze Goddess as a backup, and can confirm that it is identical).
I’m actually not completely sure where Cosmic Black was initially released – this amazing chart of all the Infallible eyeshadows has it in the UK / Other section – but I’ve only ever seen it on Ebay from an Australian seller. If you have more information, I will update the post.
There are so many reviews of the Infallible eyeshadows around at this point that I’m not going to talk about the packaging or consistency; I’m going to move straight to the color. Cosmic Black is a blackened olive green with some sparkle – it’s similar to Gleaming Bronze, but darker and sparklier. Below, I’ve swatched Gleaming Bronze and Cosmic Black side by side in three different lighting conditions.
Similar – but for me, a lover of olives and bronzes, different enough that I’m very glad to own both!
And, I’m never sure how much you all want to read about non-beauty-related things, but my fiancée and I adopted two kittens! Res (the black one, male) loves to snuggle, and Essie (the tortiseshell one, female) is still a bit shy, but gradually getting more comfortable.
