L'Oreal Infallible 24HR Matte Foundation Review.

When I first spotted L'Oreal's brand new foundation, I went out and bought it straight away - literally. L'Oreal's Infallible 24 Hour Matte foundation sounded like it could well be the Holy Grail of foundations that I've been searching for. So, what made me rush out and buy it? Well first of all it offers full coverage - other than a good shade match to my skin, that's the number one priority when I buy a new foundation. It also gives a matte finish which is one of my favourites and also claims to last up to 24 hours. The formula of the foundation left me pleasantly surprised. I have used matte and full coverage foundations that can be quite thick and hard to apply, but this was a breeze compared to those. It's lightweight, creamy and easy to apply. At first I would say it gives a medium to full coverage, but I built it up that little extra to ensure I had full coverage. If I was to be extra fussy, it wasn't quite the excellent coverage I need. There are six shades to choose from and I opted for Vanilla. I'm on the fence as to whether this is the right colour for me - it bends to my jawline perfectly but I find that in some lights it can look a little orange.
The problem with the foundation is not with the product but with my skin. I don't believe it's the foundation itself and if my skin was oilier and better hydrated then I think I would have been a lot happier with the result. I find that it makes my skin look a little caked and very dry, so right now I cant wear it as much as I really wanted to love it. So, I'm on a mission to drink more water, moisturise more often and I'll definitely be coming back to this one. The foundation retails at £6.99.
Would you try this foundation? x

  1. Hey Alexandra,
    Thanks for sharing this post! I've been really tempted to try this foundation too because it promises all sorts of goodness.
    I do have the primer from the same line and its amazing!
    Maybe if you try applying the L'Oreal Infallible Primer before the foundation it might reduce the dryness and "cakey" look?

    Would love to know how you get on with the primer if you try it.

  2. I was hoping this foundation would work for me but I seem to have quite dry skin at the moment too! Gutted!

    Have a great day,

  3. I suffer from pretty dry skin so this foundation sounds like it wouldn't be great for me, but I have seen it looking fab on a ton of people!

  4. I tried this and had to take it back, the vanilla was way to orange for my skin, it didnt sit very well on my oily skin, it felt heavy and it bought me out in blotches too. Was so dissapointed as it looked like a really good foundation. Im glad you found it not to bad

  5. It's good to hear your thoughts on this foundation as I've heard several people rave about it. My skin swings towards being dry and so I doubt this would work for me. I had a similar, 'cakey flakey' experience with True Match. Thanks for sharing xxx

  6. I have pretty dry skin so I think I might have to give this a miss! It's a shame because the formula sounds great!

  8. Im so keen to give this foundation a go as I love full coverage also, I love Loreal foundations they never disappoint :)

  9. I have the glass bottle of this, which I think is the non-matte version. I love it though, such good coverage! And although it's not matte I never get shiny with it so maybe worth picking that up if you're skin doesn't get less dry :)

  10. I wasn't too wild on this :( there weren't enough shades and my closest match was also too orange! xx

  11. I definitely think I would try this, but I tend to make foundations matte myself. When they are a matte formula they can sometimes be annoying to apply.


  12. I'm the complete opposite! It made my face so oily! I reviewed it on my blog too and I recommend it for people with normal to dry skin


  13. I definitely think it's worth a try! I plan on picking it up.
