My drugstore foundation search continues. I picked this L'oreal Infallible Pro-matte foundation a few weeks ago after reading reviews and everyone raving about how good it is. I had to try it out myself. I got mine at Walgreens each product was $12.99 but I used a coupon and they were buy one get one 50% off so I paid $14.00 for both.
I had high expectations for this foundation since all the review I read everyone loved it. When I am looking for foundation I like a light weight medium coverage with a semi-matte finish that will last all day.
This Foundations claims:
1. Semi Matte Finish
2. Wears up to 24 hours
3. Medium Coverage
4. Air-Light texture
Now reading those claims it sounded like a match made in heaven for me. But I was sadly disappointed. This foundation broke me out like crazy. I haven't had a bad break out in a VERY long time. I used the powder in conjunction with the foundation which I normally do not do and I found that it made my skin look cakey. With both it felt really heavy. I don't wear powered and foundation usually. The foundation however last a REALLY long time. Which is good. Its defiantly a medium coverage. I think you could build it to full coverage as well. It is light on the skin. I am going to try it one more time with out the powder and see if I like the finish better. But I don't think I will be using it a lot since it did break me out. I do not have sensitive skin so I was actually shocked that I had such a bad break out. I am hoping if I try it in a few weeks again and it won't break me out. Maybe it was just hormonal or something. :) I will update later. But on first impression I was not impressed. With that being said lots of people have been raving about how great it is. So even though I don't like it maybe you will. Hope these reviews help.
What is your favorite drugstore foundation?
