If you’ve read my blog for a while then you may be well aware that I usually don’t get on really well with drugstore foundations. I am not being a makeup snob but I always find that cheaper foundations don’t sit right on my skin so I have always been in a bit of a hunt to find the perfect foundation from the drugstore. One foundation that got a lot of hype when it was released was the L’Oreal Infallible 24 hour Matte Foundation. As always being the nosy person I am, I just had to see what all the fuss was about with this one. So being from the drugstore and also surprisingly for me being matte did it change my mind on drugstore foundations?
I always tend to sway towards more dewy/satin finish foundations so obviously being a matte foundation it was always going to be a challenge. Although it looks really natural on the skin and not too matte. It allows for a natural glow to come through and doesn’t sit too flat on the skin whilst looking fresh. The coverage is also pretty impressive with a more fuller buildable coverage that allows for a little less concealer to be used over the top which is always a bonus. For being matte and more on the fuller coverage side of things, the foundation is actually pretty lightweight on the skin and blends in beautifully. Unlike many drugstore foundations I’ve used in the past this sits so nicely on my skin. It doesn’t appear cakey or mask like, it blends in incredibly well and appears flawless yet natural.
I picked up the shade Vanilla which is the perfect match for me and at £7.99 it is a complete bargain! The foundation claims to last up to 24 hours and whilst I obviously haven’t worn foundation for that length of time I can say that the lasting power is pretty good. For an everyday wear foundation, I like my base to last well especially if I am out all day and this makes the perfect foundation for daily wear. With an overwhelming list of positives, you can probably already grasp my feelings on this foundation. For me to be saying that I am truly obsessed with a matte drugstore foundation seems incredibly absurd with my foundation standards but damn this is good. I really do think I’ve found the one…
