Review: L’Oréal Paris Infallible Foundation

The Infallible Foundation from L’Oréal Paris (£10.99 for 30 mL) is a long wearing, full-coverage foundation which is available in 8 shades. Unfortunately the lightest shade 015 Porcelain is not available in Denmark which is why I own the shade 120 Vanilla which is a shade darker than 015 Porcelain.

On their website they state that the foundation
got high coverage
have a long wear formula
is able to hide the appearance of fatigue and blemishes
 stays on and feels fresh from day to night

The shade I own (120 Vanilla) is way too dark for me. But as I got a tan during vacation it actually matches me right now. I don’t understand why the lightest shade isn’t available in Denmark. I also think that 8 shades isn’t a big enough range of shades. In the 8 shades I don’t see any shades for people with darker skin tones and only one (015 Porcelain) that might be light enough for people with pale skin tone like me. I have used the foundation with my Shade Adjusting Drops from The Body Shop before I got a tan but have now been able to try it without which didn’t make any difference in the formula of the foundation. The foundation got full coverage and are able to cover anything you don’t want showing – like blemishes. I also agree with their statement, that the foundation have a long wear formula. On the bottle of the foundation it states that it does not transfer which I disagree with. I blended the foundation down my neck and – as I would expect from any foundation – it transferred to my white dress. The foundation keeps looking good for a long amount of time but started creasing in places like my smile lines after a good amount of hours which is to be expected of a full coverage foundation.

I think this is a great full coverage foundation with a good lasting time but even though I really like this foundation I will only award it 4 hearts out of 5 possible.

The reason I don’t give it the 5 hearts is because I wan’t more shade options. There isn’t only 8 shades of skin tones. I have normal skin and the foundation feels great when I am wearing it. I also think it would be good on oily skin as it got a matte finish. I don’t think I would recommend it to people with dry skin as I have a feeling it might grab onto dry skin.

    1. Jeg er også blevet glad for de tyndere foundations! Men har man brug for en god full coverage foundation synes jeg ikke denne her er helt skør – udover man skal kunne passe en af de 8 shades den kommer i, hvilket der nok ikke er mange der gør! 😉
