L’Oréal Infallible Foundation Review

I have been using the L’Oréal Infallible Foundation for such a long time and I have to admit that I still really love it.  I actually think that this was one of the first foundations that I ever tried from the drugstore, along with the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse, which is a disaster that I would like to try and forget. I must have been around 12 when I first tried this foundation, which is going on 10 years ago. I think over the years, the product has gone through quite the revamp from the good old days when I first bought it, but I feel like the product is still the same and the foundation still remains to be one of my favourite drugstore products.

I can remember it was my birthday or Christmas and I got a gift card to Boots, so I decided to go and treat myself to some makeup. My family knew that I loved makeup even back when I was in my early teen years, so it was just so much easier to give me gift cards so that I could treat myself to makeup. I can remember walking up to the L’Oréal counter and seeing this Infallible Foundation and wanting to try it straight away. I think the reason why I wanted to try this so much was because it has a brush built in to the top, which at the time I thought was the coolest thing in the word and that was the only reason why I picked it up to start with.

The first thing that I want to talk about this post is the packaging. I love to talk about packaging first, because as I always say, it is the first thing that you notice about a product and you make a snap decision based on that first impression. Like I said, this product has a built-in brush at the top. Then just underneath the bristles, you twist it around and it pushes the product up and onto the brush. I know that a lot of people wouldn’t like that for hygiene reasons, but I loved it. Plus, this kind of packaging makes sure to get every scrap of product out of the tube. Now, they do a version of this foundation that has the standard pump, but it is all about the twist up for me!

This is quite a thick feeling consistency for a foundation. I would say that it is along the same realms as the MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation in consistency which I feel like it a good marker for most people. If you do pump this out, it would hold its own form, but still be more on the liquid side of things than a cream. With this consistency, I find that it is really easy to get a nice and even application. I have also paired this with quite a few different methods of blending such as with a big buffing brush and a Beauty Blender and it always blends out beautifully.

With the coverage of this foundation, I would say that it is a medium to full coverage foundation. If I want to make the most out of my foundation, I will apply this and then buff it in using a buffing brush, or if I want to sheer it out a little I will push it into the skin using my Beauty Blender. Because I have areas on my face that I like to be full coverage, I will go back in certain areas and apply a little more product and it easily builds up the coverage to be nice and full. Plus, when I do build up the coverage, I never notice that my skin looks heavy or cakey.

One that that I feel like I do want to touch on that is on more of the negative side of things is transferring. Quite often on a daily basis, I will wear this foundation if I am going to work with it being a drugstore product. I also, wear hell of a lot of scarves as part of my work wardrobe and I notice at the end of the day, there is hell of a lot of makeup on them from where it transfers around my chin. I do get the odd amount of transferring with other foundations, but never as much as I do get with this one.

Overall, I have to say that I really love this foundation. I have been using it for a long time and I know that it is going to be a staple in my collection for many years to come. I would recommend it to anybody because the I have nothing but good things to say about it. I will leave a link to this down below in case you want to check it out. Make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried this foundation and tell me what you thought about it!
