L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation Review
Introducing Infallible 24H Foundation by L’Oréal Paris. High coverage longwear foundation that hides the appearance of fatigue and blemishes. Now with Hydrating Hyaluron Complex the 24H non-stop formula stays on and feels fresh from day to night. For best results, dab Studio Secrets primer across cheeks, nose and forehead. Once dry apply Infallible Foundation starting with the centre of the face and working outwards.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Foundation is packaged in transparent, thick glass rectangular bottle with pump dispenser on top. The pump itself is covered with maroon tinted plastic lid. Pump dispenser is always good as it regulates the amount of the foundation you need ,helps to measure the amount you need eventually and is hygienic.Packaging is workable,travel friendly and easy to use.As it is transparent,You can always see amount of the product left.
I am in shade Golden Beige 140(MAC NC 41). SA was inclined to hand me over Rose Beige but I was scared of pink undertones that may look stark on my complexion which has predominant yellow base. I was happy to see 11 neutral shades launched in the range. Almost all variants of Indian Skin complexions will have a proper or close to perfect shade match.
Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation has is thick creamy texture but is very easy to blend( I have tested this with my fingers,foundation brush,buffing brush,beauty sponge). The creamy liquid spreads on my primed face like a dream and sets into powder finish on its own.Usually, single pump of foundation is enough for my entire face. I take two separate pumps for my face and neck. This foundation sets fast so doesn’t give enough time for blending so it’s better to split the area of work in parts.Texture is build able and It can be easily layered for more coverage without looking cakey. On my combination dry skin, It feels comfortable to wear this foundation considering it’s powder finish.I rather feel the effect of hyaluron in the formula which keeps my winter skin hydrated throughout the wear.
It gives me a radiant yet matte finish. I can visibly see it lighting up my complexion without looking dewy.As claimed, It does not melt and survive the heat to some extent. But the combination of this foundation with my TBS Extra Virgin Minerals Loose Powder Foundation survives the heat of mid day (October 2015,India) without any visible melting or breaking.(I have yet to see how this will wear in May-June). It gives me Medium to High coverage.It visibly cancels out the redness around my nose and zits,my face looks lot uniform. I have literally used it as concealer on pigmented areas for more coverage.It does oxides on my skin but the Golden beige is my shade. It looks natural on my skin does but I will suggest wait for few minutes while you are choosing your shade as the foundation oxidizes. It does not transfer crazy once settled to powder finish.
How I wear this foundation?
I usually wear it with Inglot makeup Under base. I have tried applying it with all possible tools but I love it best on me with The Body Shop foundation brush. I work in small sections on my face and keep blending the foundation inside out towards my hair line.As its a powder foundation you can skip setting it up with any powder. But for testing purposes, I have tried setting it up with TBS Loose powder. It does not look cakey nor the combination is drying on my dry skin.It does not settle down in fine lines around my lips , under my lower lip or in my under eye region but still I will suggest to set it up with powder in these areas if you have oily skin.On my Combination Dy skin, It lasts 8+hours without getting patchy or fading. It does not crease and my complexion looks fresh throughout the wear.

VANILLA RATINGS 8.25/10
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24H Stay Fresh Foundation is a foundation for Modern woman with classy packaging and speedy setting. There are plenty of shades available for Indian Skin complexions.With its No Mask like coverage ,Anti Melt down formula and Powder finish,it can be considered as good everyday foundation.I love the formula melts on my face when I applied it with fingers.
If you want sheer coverage, apply it with beauty blender or wet sponge.If you have no major dark circles,you can skip using concealer with this foundation. It photographs really well without any white cast in pictures or general.Price is definitely higher for drugstore but quality is one among best. But you will be surprised with the quantity required for each use.So less is more with this Foundation.Quality wise , it passed the tests of humidity and heat with flying colors.Yes,I cannot comment on 24 H freshness but It looked fresher for longer when compared to all foundations I have used up to date. Highly recommended for all skin types.
