Time for another foundation review! I picked up the Loreal Paris Infallible foundation recently so here are my thoughts on it!
I've heard a few good reviews on this foundation which is what urged me to pick it up. I also wanted a foundation that I could wear everyday that wasn't too expensive, so I can save my high end/more expensive foundations for special occasions.
About The Brand
Loreal is a very successful beauty brand, they own many other different beauty brands such as YSL beauty, Giorgio Armani & Urban Decay; just to name a few. The Loreal Paris brand sells good quality drug store makeup products internationally.
Do they test on animals? I'm not entirely sure... I did a bit of research and apparently they stopped testing on animals in 1993, however they source products from China and their factories test on animals. So technically Loreal does test on animals, which I was unaware of until recently and is extremely upsetting.
This foundation comes in a plastic tube which is less luxurious then a glass bottle however much more safe because you know it won't smash. It is the perfect size for travel, I like the way it dispenses the foundation and it comes with 35mL. Which is 5 more mL then a normal foundation - score!
It comes in 7 different shades which isn't a lot. But for a drug store foundation this is expected. They have a mixture of yellow & pink undertones. (I read somewhere that the US has 12 shades available, why did we only get 7?) I bought it in the colour 22 Radiant Beige if you're wondering!
Usually AUD$29.95 but has been marked down to AUD$20.96, not sure if the price will change again so get it while it's cheap!
Light to Medium Coverage
I enjoy wearing this foundation, I am usually not a matte foundation girl although after using this I can say I love the effect it creates. I have normal skin so it doesn't make my skin feel dry or patchy. I pair it with the Nivea Men Post Shave Balm and it stays on all day without fading or sinking into any pores. If I feel like having a more dewy finish with this foundation I use my Models Prefer Liquid Light primer beforehand. It blends easily with a foundation brush or damp sponge and I do not tend to powder my face when I wear this. I haven't found myself touching up my foundation throughout the day so it is definitely a long lasting foundation as it says it lasts 24 hours. I haven't worn it for 24 hours before (will I ever? Probably not) but it stays looking flawless all day. I did find it oxidised slightly on my forehead the first time I wore it but hasn't done that again since surprisingly. This isn't full coverage so it is perfect for the everyday makeup look. You can build up the coverage with another pump or two.
The only bad things I can say about this foundation is it oxidising slightly on my forehead (which only happened once oddly enough). It sunk into my expression lines on my forehead but it easily blended away if I went over them with a foundation brush, sponge or even a bit of powder. I don't think this foundation would be suitable for dry skin as it is matte but test it out with a moisturising primer if you would like; I'd be interested to see how that'd go.
Finally, I love this foundation and I can see myself repurchasing this in the future. I gives me good coverage and doesn't fade throughout the day which is important to me. I highly recommend this foundation for anyone with normal - oily skin types.
I love testing out foundations and letting you guys know what I think about them so I hope you found this helpful!
