Earlier this month I went ahead and purchased a new foundation and primer. I had heard great great things about L’Oreal’s Pro Matte Collection and decided to give it a try. I purchased the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation in the shade Cappuccino, and I also went ahead and got the L’Oreal Infallible Mattifying Primer.
Both products come in a squeeze tube which means you can control the amount of product you use (yay!) The foundation claims to be a full coverage foundation but I think its more of a medium cover foundation that can be built up to be full coverage. The finish is amazing, its matte but at the same time, my skin looks so smooth and velvety. There’s a bit of transfer but nothing too drastic and your face still looks intact. The Foundation promises 24 hours of wear, I’m not sure it lasts all that long but it lasts me a full work day.One thing I really love about this foundation is that it doesn’y make my face look orangey…I get that a lot with some other foundations so I usually have to do something else to counter that. The Infallible goes on like a dream, no orange at all. The only drawback (not really though) is that it does dry up a bit fast so you have to apply it one section of your face at a time. I apply it using a buffing brush, followed by a beauty blender brush just to make sure every is super blended. This product cost me N$150 in Edgars.
The Infallible Mattifying Primer is a silicone type consistency and goes on very smoothly. Also, a little really does go a long way. It is a decent enough primer, and does a good job of not only mattifying the face but also of creating a smooth canvas for your makeup. I only blot my face about two times during an 8-5 day (in the heat of summer, the African sun doesn’t play). For the price you do get a lot of product pay off. The price was about N$150-00 and that isn’t bad at all, I’d definitely buy this prooduct again.
