Cake face! I decided to go with this as a greeting because you are all probably sick of me saying nice things to you, and this actually sums up my review too 😀 slightly…
Hey there bunnies, have you tried the L’Oreal Infallible 24h Foundation yet? I got it a couple of weeks ago and I mainly bought it because I had tried the tester on my hand and the scent was so beautiful, so fresh and so nice on my skin, that it probably hypnotized me to look past everything else ha ha.
Let’s start from the beginning, shall we?
The L’Oreal Infallible foundation comes in a glass container with a black plastic pump and a see-through red plastic cap (that also has the shade written on it).
My shade is 130 True Beige but it is very light for a beige tone. I would have sworn this is a 120 maximum if I hadn’t seen the true number written on it. I have no idea, do all L’Oreal foundations go lighter than other brands? Maybelline’s 130 for example is a medium shade that would never fit pale skin tones.
Aaaaanyway the shade is a perfect match for me, so I’ll give them a thumbs up for that!
Sweet and fresh scent that makeup you want to rub your whole body in this. I sometimes leave a bit of foundation blended on the back of my hand so I can smell it throughout the day. I am weird.
*Insert dramatic instrumental here*
This comes in a creamy texture, but it’s unfortunately very sticky. The stickiness makes it great for applying setting powder, but it also makes it hard to blend. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not impossible, but you need to do more blending than usual.
And if your hands are cold and you plan to blend this with your fingers…you are going to have a bad time.
Because of how thick this is, I expected a full coverage and nothing less. It wasn’t the case, as it turned out to be a medium. I tried applying two coats of it and not even then did I get my full coverage finish.
Natural/Dewy, but you can easily use a matte powder and turn it into a matte finish.
Lasts a good 10 – 12 hours if you set it with powder, BUT it gets really oily throughout the day. I would not recommend this for oily skin.
All in all, I don’t think I will be using this during the summertime, because I get pretty oily, but I will save it for the winter when I am sure it will do way better.
Do you have any tips for applying the L’Oreal Infallible 24h, have you tried it yet? ^_^ help an oily skinned sister out.
