Today's post is a review on the new L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. I recently purchased this foundation from Duane Reade in NYC to try out because I love a long lasting matte foundation. So lets get right in to it!
This foundation claims to:
"Achieve a matte finish that won't fall flat with this air-light,longwearing liquid formula. Lightweight and creamy,foundation goes on smooth with a demi-matte finish that lasts up to 24 hours-hiding imperfections for a smooth,, clear complexion."(From the L'Oreal Website http://www.lorealparisusa.com/en/products/makeup/face/foundation/infallible-pro-matte-foundation.aspx)
So I put the foundation to the test! I Applied the foundation with my e.l.f flat top brush before I was getting ready to leave the house. I purchased the shade "Soft Sable 111" which is the second to last darkest shade. The foundation comes in 12 shades. Classic Ivory 101 is the lightest and Cocoa 112 is the darkest. The foundation went on very smooth but it dries very quickly! So you have to make sure that you work fast or else it will dry-up awkwardly and not smooth. I didn't apply a primer because I wanted to see how my skin would react to the matte formula the foundation claims to have. This is what it looked like after application.
After about 12 Hours of wear I found that the foundation help up really well! It didn't crease, my skin is still very matte and dry and my skin reacted very well to the formula. I combination skin with a more oily t-zone and dry every where else. So I usually put a base on my face using the benefit pore-fessional primer or the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer before applying foundation to help decrease the amount of oil produced in my t-zone. However, I found that with this foundation even though I did not apply a primer my tzone stayed dry and matte for the full 12 hours which is better than some of my high end foundations. Overall I think that this is a great foundation to buy from the drugstore for every day wear. You get a good product for the amount of money that you are spending and it lives up to claims that is makes. I am very pleased with my purchase and I would definitely purchase it again. Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my post. Please make sure you stop by next week for a new moment!
