It’s Really Infallible.

Jaxi Leygonie

So a while ago I was looking for a new foundation. I came across this in Clicks and I remember watching a youtube video by Jeffree Star and he said this was a great quality foundation. So I figured I’d give it a try. Well let me just say its matte and it’s 24-hours that’s for sure. It gets a bit cakey but that’s nothing some fix plus can’t fix. Let’s be honest all foundations get cakey so it’s not a bad thing it just happens.

It comes in a tube and it has a small nozzle where you squeeze the product out of. The labels on this are matte as well. It’s super nifty and if you use the infallible primer with it you are sure to not go wrong.

I use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Matte Foundation in the shade 22 Radiant Beige. It comes in a 35Ml tube with a screw on cap. I’ve used this foundation for about a year now and I absolutely love it. I find it works well with my oily skin and holds up against shine for quite a number of hours.

It also minimizes the appearance of pores or fills them in quite well. The foundation is supposed to be high coverage with a matte finish and a semi-thick formula. I find that the coverage is buildable, however, I usually just do one layer of foundation.

I prefer buffing in this foundation with a buffing brush in circular motions, opposed to a beauty blender, as I feel the finish looks a lot better with the brush than the beauty blender. I find I only need a small amount to do my face and neck, which means that it last quite a long time.

This foundation, like most, needs to be set with a powder and then it becomes less transferable on clothes.

It’s a no from me

I was really excited to try out this product, since I have quite oily skin that I’m always struggling with. I was pleased to see that many beauty personalities recommended this specific foundation, claiming that it’s one of the best drugstore foundations on the market. Alas, I did not love the product as much as I thought I would. The coverage is good and it does last all day, my issue is with the finish of the foundation. It appears caky and dry, the foundation sticks to the dryer patches on my face and it looks awful. I have oily skin so I was really confused when it turned up so dry. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, not even oily skin.

Good matte foundation

I have somewhat mixed feelings about this foundation. What I like: It’s affordable, it’s matte and does control shine throughout the day without leaving the skin looking lifeless. It has very good coverage, and lasts long without looking patchy. What I don’t like: I find that it blends well only when using a damp beauty blender (when I use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush it exaggerates my pores by settling in them) and the shade range isn’t too great (I have pale skin and bought the Vanilla shade, but it is quite pink in its undertone so needs some bronzer to bring me back to life). Overall, I don’t regret buying it; I do need an affordable matte foundation, but I’ll probably look for alternatives when this one is finished.

I read so many reviews before purchasing this and they all were great… but I don’t like this foundation because it sinks into my pores and looks so bad! I tried different tools/methods but to no avail. It applies quite dry and cakey and dries on the skin quite fast. Positives: The foundation does really last throughout the day and does stay matte, it also doesn’t transfer easily.

Amazing Coverage!

I have been using a lot of different foundations lately. This one has stood out the most for me. It’s got a great smell and texture.

I would say that it has not got “Full Coverage” as said on the packaging. However, it can definitely be built up. I don’t feel the need to use powder because it stays MAtt all day for me.

Honestly a great experience using this foundation! My colour match is great. I would say it is a bit pricey. But it is foundation so I would be willing to spend a little extra for a good foundation.
