L’Oreal Pro Matte Foundation Review
2. unfailing in effectiveness or operation; certain
Hmmmmm not too sure L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation was named correctly! I so wanted this to be THE ONE but sadly it just wasn’t. I’d read so many positive reviews for Infallible that I had to go out and grab a tube and try it out myself. Y’all know I love a bargain and have no qualms spending less for foundation but the older I get it seems my skin only likes the expensive stuff – damn my skins expensive tastes!
Right off the bat I noticed that it was very quick drying. I’d squeezed a small amount onto the back of my hand for a swatch (below
) and after less than a minute it had already started drying out. I tried to work quickly with a damp Beauty Blender
which helped a little but I still felt like it didn’t blend too well. I was aware that it was demi/medium coverage foundation but I was expecting it to cover more than it did. I felt like it way too patchy.
The other annoying thing was that out of the 11 colours to choose from I picked the wrong one! (105 Natural Beige – see below, way too orange for my skin tone) GRRRR! I would have been extra pissed off if I bought this in Australia as it retails for $29.95 at Priceline, but being the fabulous tight ass that I am I bought this in the U.S. at CVS for approx. $13 so I don’t feel sooooo bad about not using it again. I’ve read so many glowing reviews about Infallible that I feel kinda duped by it. Has anyone else used L’Oreal Infallible foundation and if so are you a fan? Should I try again with a colour that matches better or should I just count my losses?
P.S. if this is your colour match I’d be happy to send this out to you!
