Hello everyone! I shall be reviewing the
newly L'Oreal Infallible 24H Foundation today. A very late review but I had to test it in both warmer weather and cooler weather. I had used the previous one with the red pump and actually finished it! New packaging. New formulation. Do I like the old one better? Read on!
No visible imperfections
No visible shine
No dry out
No mask effect
Very honestly, I like this packaging much more than the older one. The pump takes out more than required so you have to be careful while pumping out the foundation from it.
I really like the whipped creamy texture of this foundation. It has a good thick texture and doesn't run all over your hands!
Shade 125, Natural Rose suits me very well. It is less yellow compared to MAC NC 20. I love the shade because it does not make me look too pink or too yellow. 320 Caramel Toffee, is a beautiful strong yellow toned foundation. It will suit many girls with wheatish skin but the shade range does not cater to very dusky beauties. The shade range however is still quite impressive as no other drugstore brands have these many shades.
I had tried this foundation in the humidity and now in the cooler climates so I am ready to give my review. This foundation sets matte which I love! In the humidity and drizzle few months back, the foundation did stay on my skin for a long time (7 hours & no touch up). The only problem I had with this one is that my skin became too greasy over time, felt heavy and did not look good. I was very disappointed until I read the details at the back. It is meant to hydrate. Stupid me! I put on quite a hydrating base that day and hence landed up like an oil factory. So I switched my products and I was relieved that my skin did not look like that day! I get oily at about one and a half hours with this if it is quite humid. Now that the weather is cooler and my skin is lacking hydration, lets just say that this foundation is working! If you have dry flakes, moisturize well because this will settle into your dry patches.
I love the coverage that this foundation offers. It is a very good medium coverage on my acne skin. On good skin days, I can step out only with this foundation on with some powder and my other makeup.This foundation has SPF 18 and yet photographs well. So you do not need to run and hide behind a friend when pictures are taken. I used this for my strobing tutorial. This foundation I'v noticed, transfers to my phone screen in the heat. Most of them do on my oily skin, not an issue but claiming no transfer is an issue.
Oh, one more thing, I did not apply foundation on my neck. See how well it matches?
I would say that this foundation would work best on normal/oily/combination skin. Dry skin can make it up by moisturizing as it can emphasize dry patches and will not be hydrating enough. Those looking for a dewy finish, this is not for you. If you are someone looking for light coverage, this is not your pick. If you are on a budget.. well, this retails for INR 1325 for 30ml. Quite pricey I know. This foundation is good but it is not HG status for me. I do recommend it however as it is a good one in the market! x
Any queries love?
