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.
WHAT I THINK NOW:
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.
WOULD I BUY AGAIN:
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!
