I have to admit I have been a foundation snob for a few years now, and have struggled to use anything other than my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua for almost a year and a half now. And whilst I still feel that foundation is something that is well worth investing in, I think I have found a foundation that is starting to change my mind. The Infallible Matte 24 Hour Foundation is the new foundation from L'Oreal Paris and it is fast becoming an everyday product for me.
The foundation comes in the form of a squeeze tube with a nozzle, which is ideal to ensure that the right amount of product comes out each time. It also means that you can get precise application if thats how you choose to use it.
Seeing as my skin tone is the palest of pales, the colour that I went for was Porcelain and it suits my skin tone perfectly. I tried Vanilla first as I felt that it was a similar colour to that of my Vitalumiere Aqua foundation but actually I found it too warm on my skin and would have definitely sent me down the orange route. There's 6 different shades in total so there will be a shade out there for everyone.
So if theres only one thing you take away from this review it should be the fact that this foundation does actually last 24 hours! Actually, I haven't tested it for a full 24 hours but it sure does last all day long, you can still feel it on your skin at the end of the day. Now this might not be everyones cup of tea but I actually quite like that.
L'Oreal Infallible Matte 24 hour is a full coverage foundation, so it evens out patchy or red skin with ease. Which is great if you get red patches like me! I don't actually have oily skin so I don't really need a foundation that has shine control in, but this foundation is supposed to reduce shine for a 24 hour period. Now as this foundation does everything else it says on the tin, I don't see why this one would be any different.
The Infallible foundation applies smoothly over the skin and spreads out well in comparison to my previous foundation. I like to use my fingers to get a rough coverage and then go in deeper with a buffing brush to get a flawless finish.
