L'oreal Infallible 16hr Foundation

Happy Weekend Beauties!

I've recently been trying out a  few new foundations, something I don't really do. I tend to find a foundation and stick to it as being so super pale and pink/neutral toned I find it hard work! However, a few weekends ago I was out shopping with my mum and we wondered into a little 'out of date' pharmacy where they were selling highstreet make-up for pennys! When asked why everything was so cheap the lady told me 'We aren't stocking the brands anymore and we need to get rid of it all to make room for new items and Christmas.' It's safe to say I went a little crazy and picked up this L'oreal foundation for £3!

I don't know how to put this correctly but I think I've fallen in love with a foundation, Although, this is where the problem begins. I can't find this exact foundation ANYWHERE apart from amazon, what I can find however is the L'oreal Infallible 24hr Foundation, So whether or not it's just been re-branded I don't know but you can find both HERE and they are fairly reasonable in price too. 

Now, on to why I love this foundation so! I picked up the shade 015 porcelain and it is perfect as you can see from the swatch above it's pretty neautral and not 'Orange' like most 'porcelain' foundations. In a glass pump style bottle which makes wastage none existent. I'd say it is a thick foundation but very silky so it's a breeze to blend. The coverage is definitely medium/full and it's easily blend-able. I wish I had a better camera, mines great for still shots but when I try and take photos of products on my skin, it just does them no justice! So suffice with me till I can get my hands on a DSLR!

Once on the skin this is where the foundation really does it's magic, covering all imperfections including my acne like it's nothing, it also has a magical way of blurring the surface but at the same time it's not at all cakey like I said before it's silky. I still have to use a concealer around my eyes and a tiny tiny amount on imperfections. The best way to apply this is definitely using the Miracle Sponge from Real Techniques as this really helps to achieve that air brushed look everyone is after and topped with a setting powder this foundation will last all day and continue to look amazing, even after working 5+ hours I see no fading or patchyness.

Have you tried this amazing foundation?!

  4. I think I need to pay more attention to the Loreal stand, this sounds like a nice foundation! And I really like that it comes with a pump :)

  5. I have the same colouring problem as you, I'm pale but very pink toned.. This causes me to stick to powder foundations but I think I'll be giving this a try!

  6. I tried a so-called 'porcelain' foundation from Collection which turned me orange so perhaps I should give this one a go! It's so hard to find pale foundations so thanks for the heads up!

  7. The photo looks great! You can lighten/add vibrance to it in any photo software but it looks great to me! I look forward to trying L'oreal now! Love your blog!
