L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation

L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation Review & Swatches - Sweetaholic Beauty

These past few weeks, all I've been seeing on my social media is the gorgeous looking L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation. I was super skeptical to grab this, as I had heard so many mixed reviews, but mostly because this retails at around $30 and wasn't really in my budget. When I swatched in-store however, I decided it had to be mine.

I grabbed the lightest possible colour; 11 Vanilla. I had already heard from my pale-skinned gals that it might be too dark, but I decided to give it a go anyway. It looked okay on my hand (not a reliable verdict, I know) so I decided, why not? I figure I needed to buy it to review it... for you guys.

One thing that I loved instantly about this foundation was the packaging. No super chic glass bottle. No pump (or lack of pump) or frustratingly silly applicator. I was just a girl with a tube of foundation, and that's how I liked it. The squeeze tube function makes this an incredibly easy foundation to travel with, and to portion control. Thank you L'Oreal for this packaging - every single other foundation, take note.

L'Oreal promises this foundation to be a medium texture with high coverage, and a nice matte finish. I actually love this little chart on the back of the foundation too - another thing all foundations should have.

So, did L'Oreal live up to their promise? When I store-swatched, I was really impressed with the coverage. My hand was looking smooth and matted; and oh so pretty. I wasn't too fussed about the colour and was pretty sure I could make it work. I didn't think it felt too heavy whatsoever, and was really easy to blend in.

No Makeup / Half Face / Full Face

As you can see, I'd say this is pretty high coverage. I wouldn't say completely full coverage, as I could still see a few of my beauty marks; but concealer is best used for those kinds of markings anyway. Lightweight feel was definitely spot on. Usually with higher coverage foundations, my skin feels like it's being suffocated but with the L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte foundation, I felt like I was wearing nothing at all.

This really did give a nice matte finish, but being an oily faced monster, I still felt the need to finish with a powder just to seal it in. In terms of colour - hey, I think I look pretty good. While it's a little on the yellow-based side, I'm not really complaining. It wasn't too orange and for that I'm pleased.

After a few good hours, I found that there was a little wearing, but nothing that a little powdering wouldn't help with.

Overall I was pretty happy with this foundation. And for $30, I really should be. I'm not unhappy that I purchased this, as I give it full ticks across the board.  I have yet to try the accompanying primer as I just don't think I can spend another $30 on something that is supposed to be a dupe for a higher end product - but if there is a sale on, I'll definitely consider picking it up. All in all, totally impressed with this foundation.

Have you tried the L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation? If so, what are your thoughts? Have you tried the primer as well - if so, do you think I need it too?

  1. I'd love to give it a go but they definitely haven't brought out a shade light enough for me. Maybe in the future! x

  4. I've been testing out this foundation recently as well and I'm quite liking it! I'm not quite sure it lives up to all the hype though! I do like that it feels super lightweight yet gives good coverage though, fairly long lasting too :)

  22. Hi babe, I trialled the original formula last year - it was good but not good enough to buy it, but it sounds like they've reworked it. Matte works best for me with my oily T-zone, thanks for a brilliant review hon ♥

  24. Aw thanks gorgeous! xx

  25. Yeah I would be the same, matte can be so horrible for dry skin! Aww thanks lovely! xx

  26. I was actually shocked at how non-pink it was haha... I'm used to only being able to find pink based foundations in lighter shades, so this was a really nice change! xx

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's definitely worth trying, I hate buying expensive foundation without sampling it first but I'm glad I got this one! xx

  28. Ohh I wish I had tried the original so that I could have compared, damn! xx
