I’m sure you’ve all heard the name of this foundation around a lot recently, I’d say it’s the one that’s the most hyped up at the moment. If you know me you’ll know I’ve only ever used 2 different foundations in my life, it’s not something I feel the need to switch up If it works why change it? However, my holy grail was running low so I thought this would be a better time than never for a change, so I purchased it.


When I was first browsing through the foundations on the Loreal stand I realised the ‘Infallible’ had a lack of shades, about six if I remember correctly. I understand why they’ve done this, they don’t want to bring out a huge verity of shades as they don’t know how the public will react to the product yet. I purchased the Infallible foundation in the shade ‘Natural Rose’ which is a tiny bit too dark for my skin, however, there was no way I could have gone for ‘Porcelain’ as I would be looking like a ghost! I was aware this foundation had a thicker consistency which made me a little worried that it was going to be like the dream matte mousse days, the product every kid tried to rock at thirteen. Once I’d squeezed a little bit of the tester onto my hand it became clear how easily it spreads and how it’s nothing like matte mousse, yass!

I’m also going to state that it’s definitely on the pricier side of drugstore foundations, retailing at £9.99, I suppose this kind of price is becoming more standard for drugstores, I miss the days when you’d only pay around £7.


At the time of writing this, I’ve been using ‘Infallible’ for 3 weeks, I’ve been doing activities such as climbing, cycling and sailing so the full coverage has definitely been put to the test. I can say it’s lasted pretty much all day apart from around my nose that get’s a little oily later on in the day, but I suppose that happens with most foundations.

The main thing that I found disappointing me was how the foundation really clung onto my dry skin, it made parts of my face appear orange and like I didn’t know what I was doing, I’m really not digging that. In contrast, on the area’s of my skin that isn’t dry the foundation spread beautifully with a beauty blender, my advice would be to take your skin type into consideration before buying Infallible. It has the potential to make your skin look amazing despite it not completely working for me.


In all honesty, I don’t think I’ll be going out to purchase this product again once my current one runs out. I’ll continue to use the one I’ve got every now and then as it still works it just not a WOW from me, how unspreadable it is on dry skin is what done it for me.

I’d love to know your opinions on this foundation and how it’s been working out for you!

    I have a lot of dry patches I don’t think this foundation would work for me, thank you for the good post ❤ could you check out my latest?

    Nice review. I am always far far away from matte foundations because they really stick to my dry patches. Love this review 😍

    Excellent review, saved me the bother of wasting money as I had thought of giving infallible a try. My skin is quite combination but with potential for the odd dry patch, so thank you for the read 😊

      it works well on my skin when it’s not being really dry, so it has the potential to get fab still! glad it helped you xx

    Great review! It’s a shame that it sticks to dry skin as it could be a fantastic product. I might still give it a go though!

    Agh the fact it accentuates dry patches is awful – id hate that and it would drive me crazy!

    That’s a shame that the foundation didn’t work for you. I’ve got dry skin so always steered away from the product but hopes it would work in oily skin!

    Great review, I have stuck with the same foundation for a while now, and it’s the Maybelline Dream Foundation I think? I haven’t worn makeup lately so I’m trying to remember, but that’s the one i’ve stuck with for some time and I like it a lot!

    Cool review. I can’t decide if £10 is expensive for a drugstore foundation. But yes, dry patches… they look quite bad on the skin and completely defies the purpose I guess! xx corinne

    Liked your review, I’ve never really tried a high coverage foundation but I’ve heard about this one a loooot since its release. Doubt they’d have my shade though unfortunately, especially if they’re limited, but I love product reviews so this was good to know, especially for the future when they maybe bring out more shades!

    Ahh damn. I tend to get a few dry patches here and there on my face so I don’t think I’ll get this. I mean, it’s helpful though because a lot of people talk about this foundation and I’m a bit picky when it comes to trying out new foundations so thank you for the heads up! lovely pics too xx

    I agree it can look quite orange on the skin and for me it was much too thick I prefer a lighter foundation with as much coverage as possible!! Have you tried the L’Oréal one in a pump form that’s really good!! Loved this post

    This isn’t a foundation I’ve crossed paths with yet but I always find L’Oreal formulas are quite greasy and heavy! Great review!
