I just looked through my stash for the two colors I thought it might resemble. One was Armani ETK #21 (can't recall the name) and Mac Fashion (starflash shadow). The Armani was more blue on my skin. The Furtif definitely looks gray to me with a blue cast to it. As far as my skin tone goes, a lot of grays read a little blue on me. I think the Armani was lighter and more sparkly than Chanel Furtif. The Fashion shade was definitely blue and the finish was very different. I will say that the Armani was closer of the two. I think maybe if you built up the color of the Armani in layers it would probably be closer but much more sparkly so I don't know if you would really get the same effect as the Chanel.
As far as Infini goes, I still need to look around for more products in my stash. Since I just got Laura Mercier Sterling Caviar Stick and still haven't used it, I tested it on my hand. It looked very similar when I blended it out, but maybe more sheer than Infini. If I just rubbed it on and didn't blend it, it didn't look similar at all.
I haven't done any side by side comparisons though. Maybe next time I'm in the store, I'll swatch Armani, Chanel and Laura Mercier together to get a better idea.
I was looking for a pic and I noticed that Christine at Temptalia swatched Infini but gave it a D rating. I love to look at her pics but I admit I rarely read the reviews. Since I was swatching, I decided to read it. She said Infini went on dry and patchy. But I thought her pic of Infini after 8 hours of wear looked really good.
