First Impression & Review: L'Oreal Infallible 24H Matte Foundation

L'Oreal are a great drugstore brand and I thoroughly enjoy their products whether it's hair or makeup, the quality is fantastic.
I came across their new Infallible Matte foundation at my local drugstore and thought I would do a review for you, so if you'd like to know more about this foundation then just keep on reading!

Infallible Matte is an easy to spread, lightweight, liquid emulsion that is never dull and never cakey. It resists sweat, stress, heat and humidity with no shine and no mask effect. Combining extreme hold and absolute comfort, the matte formula is impeccable all day with no touch-ups required. Only the smoothest formula that lets your skin breathe, containing 1/3 water for a stretching glide and maximum comfort for all day wear. Perlite technology acts like mineral micro sponges to help absorb excess oil and water, so it is clinically proven waterproof, sweat proof and steam proof.

First of all, I like the packaging. The squeezy tube makes it very easy to extract the product and apply it to your face without any mess or fuss.

I bought the shade 11 Vanilla which is the lightest shade in the range and it matches my complexion perfectly.

It does say to use your fingertips to apply but honestly, you can use whatever you like.
I used a damp Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to apply this foundation and it worked beautifully.
Be sure to shake thoroughly before use.

The formula is definitely matte but it didn't catch onto any dry spots on my skin and I was very surprised by that.
It felt lightweight and smooth on the skin, blending really easily even without the use of a primer.

It says it's a full coverage foundation and I would absolutely agree with that.
It covers redness and blemishes for a flawless base.
I didn't notice it sink into my pores or cake up anywhere either.

I wore this foundation for a good 8 hours and it was also a warm Spring day.
Because I hadn't applied a primer, finishing powder or a setting spray, I noticed that it had worn off a bit on my nose because of my oily skin. But the rest of my face still looked flawless.
If you have any spots or blemishes peeking through, all you'd need is a touch of concealer and you're set.
I wore it again for 8 hours. I used a primer, I also set it with a face powder and there was no trace of oil peeking through or any need for touch ups. No fading, no wearing off, it looked just as good as it did when I applied it. 
Another thing that this foundation didn't do was oxidize which is the last thing you want if you have fair skin.

Holds 35ml of product which is more than a standard foundation
Keeps you matte & doesn't dry out your skin
Doesn't sink into pores or fine lines
Comfortable to wear
Light & smooth formula
 Doesn't cake up or oxidize
Great coverage
Easy to blend
Amazing staying power

A bit on the pricey side so it may not fit into everyone's budget


This foundation claimed to do a lot of things so I had high expectations of it.
It ticked all the boxes and I was very impressed by how flawless it looked on my skin and how good it looked throughout the day. I just can't fault it, it blew me away.

This foundation is perfect for anyone who needs full coverage or has an oily skin type.
I would wear this mostly on nights out when I'm going for a heavier makeup look but you can wear it any time of the day.
If you love a matte finish, you'll definitely love this.

If you're worried about the price, you could take advantage of a good sale and you'll save a bit of money.
