Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation Review

I recently purchased Loreal’s Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation as well as the Infallible Pro-Matte Powder and I absolutely love it. I was definitely pleased from the start and this foundation stands up to the test of time. Listed below are the pros and cons of the foundation.

Loreal Foundation

When this foundation says it lasts…it REALLY lasts!!

Pros

  • It really does last 24 hours with NO touch-ups. Color doesn’t fade or look tired. (Side note…I’m a singer/musician, as well as the choir leader at my church, and had a late gig one Saturday night. I wore this foundation along with the powder and never had to touch it up during the gig. When I got home, I was too tired to do anything but go to bed, (and I know you aren’t supposed to do this, but…) so I slept in my makeup! *gasp* The next morning when I got up for church, my makeup still looked very fresh, so I went with it! No one knew that it was the makeup from the night before. Sorry. Not sorry.)
  • Color selection is excellent. I have fair skin and theĀ Natural Ivory matched perfectly.
  • Goes on smooth and blends very easily.
  • Matte Finish
  • Excellent coverage with not a lot of product. It provides medium coverage that is buildable if desired.

Cons

  • I use shimmery eye shadows. Where this is a matte foundation, it does take away some of the shimmer I am used to getting when I use other foundations as an eye shadow base/primer. I thoroughly enjoy shimmery eyeshadows, so this is a downer for me.
  • Makes dramatic eye shadow colors not true to their color. Shades appear lighter than what they actually are, so you typically have to apply a little more.

* I will more than likely begin using a different primer for my eyelids to rectify this problem.

Overall this foundation is great and I highly recommend it to anyone!
