I was so excited to get try the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, so shortly after it came out, I went and got it. Let's start with what it claims to do.
- Air-light texture - TRUE!
- Barely there feel - TRUE!
- Flawless - TRUE!
- Demi-matte finish - FALSE!
- Goes on smooth - TRUE!
- Smooth, clear complexion - TRUE!
As you can see, this foundation was almost very true to what it claimed to be. It applied completely matte and felt amazing. It glided on amazingly and gave my skin a flawless complexion. The texture really was air-light as well.
I really wanted to keep it and work with it. To get a fair review, I used it four times. The only downfall, and the biggest, was the finish. It made my face oily as soon as I stepped outside the front door, and it steadily became oilier as the day progressed. If you knew me, I like foundations/BB cream that stay demi-matte for the whole day where I wouldn't have to powder my face. Unfortunately, this foundation didn't do that for me. My face was so slick, you can cook an egg on my forehead. This was the same reason I never purchased the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, and the same reason that I returned this foundation.
I would highly recommend the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation to people with dry or normal skin. If you have combination or oily skin, I would still suggest giving it a try because it might work for you in a way that it didn't work for me. You can always return it ;)
I hope this review helped you.
Let me know in the comments if you've tried this foundation or if you plan on getting it.
