L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Matte Foundation

L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hour Matte Foundation
After hearing so much beauty buzz surrounding this foundation, I thought I would give it a whirl myself. I can honestly hold my hands up and say that as I have got older I have gotten consistently better at looking after my skin, and one thing this foundation has made me realise is my skin is no where near as oily as what it used to be.

On first application I thought this foundation was difficult to work with, it took a hell of a lot of blending, and even then my face resembled a badly glossed door. My face felt physically tight, and itchy, and in dire need of a thick layer of moisturiser. But I stuck with it and wore it for an entire night shift at work, so it would have been on my face for around 15 hours. By the time the morning came I took a good long look at my face under hideous fluorescent lighting, and I was horrified at how I looked. The foundation had separated on my face, especially on my nose and chin, and my forehead was a layer of dry, flaky skin.

Not one to give in so easily, I skipped setting powder the next time I wore it, and it was exactly the same, so this time I washed my face and switched to my beloved True Match. I gave myself and my skin a break, and tried again, but this time mixing it with my True Match to see if that would help, and low and behold, I created myself the perfect foundation. The thinness of True Match reduced the thick, cake like look of Infallible, and made it a lovely full coverage foundation. I have also mixed it with several liquid highlighters to give it a less lacklustre appearance on the skin.

This foundation is thick and heavy duty, and made for someone with more oily skin then I. It is very hard to work with, and admittedly I never tried it with a beauty sponge, but that could be a better way to apply. For all the negatives about this foundation, I will end on a positive and say I adore the packaging style, the squeeze tube makes it so easy to get out, and means you'll be able to use every last drop.

What are your thoughts on this foundation?
