I don't know if I'm a little late to the party here, but today I would like to talk to you all about my current favourite foundation - The new L'Oreal Infallible 24H Matte. I didn't even know this foundation existed until I saw it on offer a few weeks ago at Boots and picked one up. Since then I've seen it pop up on loads of beauty blogs and it seems that I'm not the only one who's loving this new high street favourite.
For those of you who have been reading my blog for sometime may know what when it comes to foundation I like something a bit heavy duty and one thats going to work with my combination skin, not work against it. So when I saw that L'Oreal had released the Infallible foundation in a matte formula I knew I had to try it.
First of all let me start with the packaging - I love it. Normally I think foundations look a lot more fancy when they come packaged in glass, even though glass bottles have many downsides. This plastic tubing with its black design looks very sleek and is so makeup bag friendly. What I really love about it is that it's so easy to dispense the foundation, just simply squeeze the bottle and just the right amount comes out. It has quite a small nozzle so your in total control of just how much foundation comes out, which means no waste. Again the plastic tube means you can get every last drop of foundation out.
Now for the actual foundation itself, I think it has to shoot straight up there with some of the best mattifying foundations that I've tried. Usually matte foundations that give a full coverage flawless look can feel pretty heavy and cakey. However the Infallible 24H Matte is incredibly lightweight for such full coverage foundation. It actually gives that 'skin' like look, which can be so hard to find in a matte foundation. The foundation is really silky and once blended in your skin looks flawless. A downside is that it can take a little longer to blend in. I actually find it works best applied with my fingers. If you don't mind blending for a little longer, I promise you the results are brilliant.
As for staying power, again I'm pretty impressed. I've not tried this foundation without a powder as I don't dare leave the house without it. But with powder this foundation is long lasting and does a great job at keeping any oily skin that's trying to seep through well at bay. As the 24H on the packaging suggests, L'Oreal say that this will provide 24 hour coverage, but towards the end of the my working day I do find that my makeup does need those essential touch ups - Nothing major though.
Another huge plus about this foundation has to be the price. I did pick this up whilst it was on offer, but it retails for £6.99 at Boots, which is such a bargain. I kind of wish that I had picked up the matching primer to go with this to see how well the two worked hand in hand. I might pick one up and do an updated review for you all.
Overall I love this foundation and once its ran out I will definitely be repurchasing. I would love to know what your thoughts are on this foundation are? Do you think its worth they hype? Let me know in the comments below.
Lots of Love
