L'Oreal Infallible Foundation | Review


As you may see from the posts on my blog there have been a fair few foundation reviews. I always thought my favourite make up product was lipstick but I am soon releasing that I also have a serious addiction to foundations. I just love trying them out and comparing them to other brands. I do think foundation is a very important step in any makeup routine as it makes or breaks the final look. I have heard so many people and bloggers rave about the L'Oreal Infallible Foundation line. I was in Tesco's a few weeks back browsing the makeup stands and saw there was a £3 off offer (I'm sure you can find another offer like this in Boots or Superdrug) so thought it was the perfect time to try the Infallible line out. I just couldn't pick between the Matte Formula or the Regular so naturally I got both and I have no regrets at all.

The Matte Formula reminds me a lot of the Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation (the old formula) the way that it is a very thick texture but it blends out on the skin like 'silk'. It gives amazing coverage to the point that I don't even need a concealer to cover any spots or scarring. It lasts amazing on the skin and throughout the day it really stays matte. I have issues with my nose and forehead going really shinny by mid afternoon but when I wore this foundation I didn't need to powder at all (like I usually do with all other foundations). I can't rave enough about this foundation and high recommend that if you have tried and loved the Laura Mercier Silk Creme in the old formula you will equally adore this foundation. I think this is more suitable for an evening look and for people with normal-oil complexions. I apply this using my Zoeva 104 Buffer brush which has a flat head and is very dense so it really works the product into the skin giving a stroke free finish.

The Regular Formula is completely different in texture than the Matte. It is a lot more watery and doesn't have as much coverage as the Matte however in saying that it is still a very comfortable and easy to work with. The best way to apply this foundation is with the Real Techniques buffering brush or a make up sponge to give a very natural finish. This foundation is really nice in the winter as it adds a lovely glow to the skin and doesn't cling to any dry patches so I think this would be ideal for dry-normal skin. I do have to use a powder on my forehead and nose but this doesn't worry me too much as it doesn't slide or cake on the face at all.
