I first saw this on one of my countless trips to Boots. I over looked this as I'm not normally a fan of matte finishes. I'm more of dewy finish kinda gal. However, after reading so many good reviews on this I decided I had to try it! This little product that comes in at under £8, promises a matte finish for 24 hours that's non-cakey.
The packaging is good, its easy to dispense the product. There's nothing worse than foundations that come in a glass bottle without a pump! I'm looking at you Revlon colour stay!
I dotted this all round my face in my usual application style, reached for my trusty real techniques buffing brush and began blending. The first thing I noticed was how difficult it was to blend as high coverage foundations tend to be. That being said, it applies a lot easier and has a nicer finish when applied with a dump beauty blender style sponge. I picked the shade 20 sand, which matched my skin tone perfectly. It is high coverage as it claims to be. There was no need for concealer on the discolouration I have around my chin - Which is always a plus!
This is defiantly a matte foundation. It handled shine well. In fact it was still matte when it came to removing it at the end of the day. Which is pretty impressive for those oilier gals out there! As for lasting 24 hours.. I don't know about that (Who actually where their foundation for that long?) but it did last around 7 hours. For the price you can't really go wrong!
L'Oreal infallible 24h- matte is available here.
Until next time...
