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!

Makeup Review! – Ready Set Gorgeous!

I recently purchased CoverGirl Ready Set Gorgeous liquid foundation, as well as the powder foundation. I loved it!

Foundation

I love to try new things and I am definitely happy I tried this foundation. Here are a few pros and cons to help you decide if this makeup is right for you!

Pros:

  • Good Coverage! It gives light to medium coverage depending on how you apply it.
  • Lightweight feel. This foundation does not feel heavy on your face or get cakey!
  • Lasts all day. I’m pretty picky about the lasting power of my foundation, and I was pleasantly surprised with this one.
  • You can wear this WITHOUT powder. I do recommend at the very least dusting a powder on your face to help with shine, but this works good enough all by itself!

Cons:

  • I wish there was a shade a little bit closer to my natural skin tone. Don’t get me wrong, this shade matches well, but I have to be careful when I’m applying the foundation and powder together to achieve a medium coverage. It runs just a little bit dark. I bought the creamy natural this time, but will probably go a little lighter the next.

This foundation is great! It’s inexpensive, gives good coverage, and lasts. I recommend it!

Powder Foundation

I love this powder! I use it over my foundation to provide extra coverage, but it gives enough coverage for a ‘natural’ day to use alone!

Pros:

  • Lightweight and Blendable
  • Good Coverage
  • Can Wear Alone. (Apply moisturizer first. It blends more easily if you do!)
  • Lasts a decent amount of time. As long as you don’t touch your face throughout the day, this will last all day with just a few minor touch ups.

Cons:

  • I do wish the powder foundation could last just a little bit longer, but I think I’m living in a dream world!
  • I would love it more if it had a little more coverage. The coverage is really good as is, but it would make it the best if it had slightly more!

This is a great and inexpensive powder and/or foundation. I definitely recommend it!

I’d love to hear about your experiences with this foundation! Have you tried it? Did you like it? Hate it? Would you buy it again?
