The Best Drugstore Foundation? L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation

L'Oreal Infallible Matte FoundationIf 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…

    • Its so good right! 4 tubes, wow you really do like it then haha! Yeah I usually use a sponge after a brush to just finish it off and it always looks super natural! I just love it! Ooo thanks for the tip, I’ve never tried that before but I definitely will!


    • It is really nice! I know the only other one I’ve tried is True Match which I wasn’t a fan of but they seem to have reformulated it and everything I didn’t like about it seems to have changed! So I will really need to give that a go! Definitely worth trying out and having a little swatch!

    • Ooo I really want to try that infallible foundation too! It sounds really nice! The only other L’Oreal foundation I’ve tried is True Match which I sadly didn’t like but I do want to try it again since they reformulated it! I am usually not to bad with finding shades in drugstore foundations but they just never sit right on my skin! It is so annoying but I am so happy with this foundation 🙂


  2. I’ve just used up a tube of this recently & I have to say overall I’m impressed, though some days it can be a bit hit or miss with me but I think that’s just my ever moody skin lol If you haven’t tried the No 7 range (beautifully matte) it’s fantastic, my ultimate foundation. Bit pricier at £13 but as close to high end as I can find in drug stores 🙂 Brill review Lauren!!!! ❤ Karen xoxoxo
