Review || Loreal Paris Infallible 24-Hour Matt Foundation

Hello my Beauties,

Also Hello September! That came around fast didnt it?? I mean in four months the holidays will be upon us once more... crazy!! but I am getting ahead of myself today I am here to give my review of this little product. Enjoy and let me know you thoughts in the comments!!   

A couple of weeks ago I posted my Review for Infallible Mattifying Base ( If you have not already seen it then you can just click on the link here - Review || Loreal Paris Infallible Mattifying Base ) & This week I thought I would talk to you about my thoughts on the accompanying foundation in the range.

I have mixed feelings about this product. I was hesitant to write this review as I don't feel like I have a clear opinion on the product but I have been using it for a few weeks now and I still feel the same so I figured I would just let you know what I thought.

I honestly believe my mixed feelings from this product stems from the fact that I am not the targeted skin type for this foundation. I have normal to dry skin, therefore the heavy duty mattifying properties do not agree with my skin type. The reason I picked it up in the first place is because I love a matt finish foundation and my skin was more normal than dry in the summer months.

My thoughts
I find this foundation even with the use of a primer can really dry out my skin if it is not properly moisturised before hand & even then after a few hours my skin can feel really dry. To be honest this actually means it is a great product for oily girls out there because it means it actually does what it claims to do.

Why do I keep using it you ask??
Well that's the funny thing I love the effect it gives. The finish of it is really nice and I keep getting compliments on it, which was why I was not giving up on it & it does last for hours with out any need of touch up.. well for me anyway & I have found as long as I properly prep my skin then I dont end up with dried up flaky skin it just takes more effort then it usually does to do my skin care routine.


Type of foundation: Liquid
Texture: Quite light and extremely blendable, Does set quite quickly though.
Aimed for : Oily Skin
Finish: Matt
Coverage: Medium - Full (Buildable)
Oxidation: Yes
Lasting Power: Excellent
Price Range: Drugstore/Highstreet (about 15 Euro)
Would I recommend it? YES              

Overall Thoughts

You get a lot of bang for your buck with this foundation, as with the primer, a little goes a long way. You have to be quick enough with your blending as is tends to set quite quickly, however it is really easy to blend so have not had a problem with this. It will oxidize but it was nothing too crazy on my skin. It will start off as a meduim coverage and build up to a full coverage foundation. 

Would I recommend it??

It is aimed for oily combo skin so for my dry skinned girls out their, like myself, Even though I personally like the foundation and will continue to use it until the tube runs out, I would not recommend this unless you are willing to put a bit more care in the skin care routine before hand, or else you could up a flaky mess. I have no doubt it would be perfect for oilier girls & I find the finish on it fantastic! If you have an oiler skin type then I definately recommend to give this a try!! Dont forget to comment back and let me know how you get on with it!!
