Product Review: L’Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation

Nicole | February 24, 2015

I love a great drugstore find! Sure I love me some Sephora but I don’t always love the price tag. Recently, L’Oreal has been luring me to try their products with their new packaging. Such was the case with their new L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation.

I am not a person who loves to look matte and I’ve constantly expressed that through my previous beauty posts (I’m always looking for that ‘celebrity glow). There is only one time I like to look matte and that’s when I’m working. Since I work as a photographer and studio manager, I’m always on the move and I need a foundation I can wear everyday that’s going to last through any photoshoot madness. I love the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation for an everyday matte look that I don’t have to retouch and that gets me out the door quick in the morning. I like how it gets rid of my skin’s redness with a pea sized amount, covers imperfections in a snap and makes me look great.

Check out the difference in my Before and After photos and judge for yourself:

Remember to always apply a moisturizer before you apply foundation; it’ll help your make-up stay on longer. I started with an eye cream, serum and moisturizer by Clarins (three skincare products I’ll be reviewing in a future post.) I recommend using a primer before applying if you have any uneven skin texture or blemishes. I did not wear any primer for my application this time but I did feel incredibly vulnerable posting this BEFORE photo skin redness and blemish spots out there for all of you to see!

SAMSUNG CSCI use my Beauty Blender to apply the product.

SAMSUNG CSCI start by dispensing a pea-size amount of the product. I always start with very little and then use a bit more foundation and use it as a concealer and go over problem areas like dark spots or scars with the thinner part of the Beauty Blender.

SAMSUNG CSCI disperse the foundation with the sponge on both apple of my cheeks, forehead and chin and work myself up from there to apply it to all my face.

I think the result is pretty flawless! A little goes a long way with this product and it looks as if you had dusted your face with mineral powder. Do not apply a lot of foundation because your skin will dry out and look pasty (I’m guilty of doing this) , especially since this formula has an oil-control agent. As you can see the previous photos, my face has a lot of redness to it and this foundation really evens my skin tone out. I still think my cheeks look like their blushing though!

For a cool $12 I think this foundation is a great investment!

    I’m not one to stray from the typical foundation I use, but I think I’m definitely going to have to try this now! It’s flawless!

    You look beautiful, as always!
