When it comes to foundation, I’m a bit of a snob. I rarely find anything on the high street that can perform as well as I need it to, offering decent coverage and longevity without feeling incredibly heavy on my skin. There’s something to be said for spending a little more on a base that will work with you, rather than against you, and those formulas are more often than not found in a department store beauty hall. However, the latest launch from L’Oreal (Infallible 24hr Matte) has had me eating my words – as it’s just as good as, if not better than, the NARS All Day Luminous Weightless foundation I’ve raved about previously. Offering a lightweight and non-cakey texture, a 24 hour finish (although show me a woman who genuinely wears her foundation for 24 hours,) and waterproof qualities, this is one foundation to be reckoned with.
The slightly underwhelming tube conceals something that’s pretty powerful, gliding over my skin effortlessly to cover dark circles and conceal imperfections. It doesn’t feel heavy and a little goes a long way – the texture is very close to the NARS long-lasting formula, providing a very similar result on the skin and equal longevity. I can apply this first thing in the morning and my makeup still looks practically perfect when I remove it before bed; that’s a hardworking foundation! It doesn’t cake, I get hardly any movement or oil in my t-zone and I don’t feel like I need to top-up with powder come the afternoon. There’s nothing magical about what’s inside it and it won’t do anything for your skin underneath, but if you’re after a new foundation to help you look flawless without caking your face in an uncomfortable mask then L’Oreal Infallible 24hr Matte could be a worthwhile purchase. At £6.99, compared to £33.00 for the NARS alternative, you can’t go wrong.
