L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation is a new demi-matte, oil free foundation that launched for Spring 2015. I wanted to go matte with my foundation in the summer time because my face goes back to normal and has shine in it.
- COLOUR – I’ve used this for 3 months now and I’m really surprised with this foundation. When I first bought it I discarded it thinking it was too yellow toned, but after using it for a while somehow it adjusted to my skin tone. I picked the right color for me (105- Natural Beige).
- COVERAGE – medium to full coverage, again, I’m impressed. It evens my skin tone out and covers red areas well, although leaves them looking a bit dry after few hours of wear, I usually just moisturize my face before I use it. Some days (more recently since fall is here) I notice that it gets dry even though I moisturized so I just bring a small container with my moisturizer and apply it on.
- FORMULA – I love the formula of this foundation, I use probable two squeezes every day and it covers my whole face with some left over. It’s creamy, soft, silk, and blends nicely. I think they did a good job with this formula. My skin is combination, and I was scared to get this because it’s matte, and I was terrified it might dry me out soooooo much in my chin area. I was wrong, best foundation to use in summer time, since now it’s fall I use extra moisturizer and it’s being working fine.
- PRICE – Retails for $20.99 in Shoppers Drug mart. I was hesitant about picking this up. I didn’t want to buy a drug store product for that price especially when I can just use my high end products instead. I’m really glad I picked it up, because I love wearing it every day, its easy, and light so I feel like I have nothing on which is amazing especially when you wake up at 5:30 AM. If you are thinking about it go for it.
- SPF – No SPF
Overall, I will definitely be repurchasing this foundation when it’s done. I can’t express my feeling enough about this foundation; the fact that my face loves it too makes me very pleased. The color though might take some people awhile to choose from since it is yellow toned, but if you can find it I promise (maybe promise is too intense) you will love it.
Lets talk about the powder, I picked the duo together because I thought it would cover even more and make it more matte–er. I’m not a powder person, let be honest… with my dry patches I hate using powder. This powder though seemed different then other ones I’ve tried. It’s very creamy and very smooth. The color though I think I picked the wrong one but they had only 4 to choose from and I choose the medium, It’s not the same color as my foundation. I used this powder for a week, and now it’s just sitting in my drawer because I don’t like using it. I feel it makes my look cakey and flat, and I do notice some dry spots in an hour of wear. I love the foundation, but the powder I feel like its too much.
Let me know your thoughts about this review, and your feelings towards the powder. I would love to hear back from you ❤
