L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Foundation
Having purchased this after not seeing many reviews, I thought I would try it as it wasn't too expensive.
I was concerned about the colour to begin with. Ivory was too light and pinky so I got vanilla. I am quite pale but I find foundations with yellow undertones suit me better. Vanilla isn't that yellow but after the make up sets its a great colour for me.
I also purchased the primer as it was on offer as well and I am really impressed.
I normally get very oily in my t-zone area and my make up always seems to move on my chin. With this foundation it stayed on and didn't go oily. It also feels so soft and my skin doesn't feel clogged. Sometimes with mattifying foundations I find they look too chalky but this one doesnt. It looks natural and fresh.
I normally wear a high end foundation but this has now replaced it and it's so cheap.
If you have dry skin I don't think this will suit you as I had some dry skin on my nose and it did emphasise it.
It also says high coverage. With one application it covers most of my imperfections but I found I could build up where needed without it looking cakey.
Overall I will be buying this again.

Love this product!!!
I recently bought this product and am extremely impressed by it. It leaves a fabulous matte finish and covers redness very well. L'Oreal describes it as a high coverage, which I would definitely agree with. The packaging is good and the tube stops too much product coming out. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a high coverage foundation with a matte finish at a good price.

Ok, so i have tried them all.....high end cosmetics and professional.....and I am blown away by this foundation.
First of the only negative i have found....the shades !!! we need more and by more I mean more yellow. That aside I chose sand (nc20) its a little to beige and Id love it a tad more yellow but its the best of i could get and it does work fine when blended and settled on your skin.
This blends like nothing before, its impossible to go wrong with this foundation.
It dries to a semi matte silky finish that you DON'T have to set with a powder, which for me and my oily skin is unheard of. You can build the layers for more coverage and it wont look thick or cakey. The staying power is phenomenal...it lasts all day and beyond....staying as great as when first applied and feels SO light on your skin.
It doesn't settle in your fine lines, it doesn't crack or smudge off, it hasn't broke me out.
If you have oily skin YOU NEED THIS.....please L'oreal, bring us some more shades and you've cracked it.
