I wanted to try out the L’Oreal Paris Infallible Stay Fresh 24 H Foundation for a while now. I’ve been seeing some positive comments about it over and over on social media and blogs, so I just had to have it!
When I review a product, I like to use it a few times and get a real impression before I write about it. I bought this foundation two weeks ago, and I’ve used it during the daylight and for nights out. I have it in 130 True Beige.
What L’Oreal says about it:
- No transfer
- No visible imperfections
- No visible shine
- No dry – out
- No mask – effect
Enriched with hydrating hyaluron + extreme hold pigments for optimum comfort.
Check out what I think!
I love the packaging – personally I prefer foundations in a bottle with a pump dispenser rather than the ones in tubes. It’s functional, hygienic and you can get the right amount of product without making a mess. 2 pumps of this foundation are enough for covering the whole face and neck area.
First impression about the formula – this foundation is heavy! It’s very pigmented and offers a medium coverage, however you can build it up to full. I use one layer to even out my skin tone and apply another one where needed – acne and redness areas. It’s so blendable, creamy, goes on smoothly on the skin and sets in very quickly. What I really like about it is that it’s thick and covers up everything without making my face look cakey (like some other heavy foundations do). It gives me this subtle glow and a natural, healthy look. Another thing that I like is the smell – it has this nice, floral scent.
About the 24 hours: I don’t like when companies promote their long lasting makeup this way, stating that it lasts for 24 hours. It just doesn’t make sense, who wears makeup for 24 hours anyways? However, this foundation is really long lasting. I usually have it on for 6 – 8 hours and I just love the staying power. It does not smear off or fade and my face looks fresh even after 4 – 5 hours after applying it. I can’t guarantee for those 24 hours though, I don’t think I’ve ever had any makeup product on for that long.
Overall, I love this foundation and would buy it again. It’s long lasting, suitable for every skin type and offers great quality for a low price. Just another reminder that drugstore brands shouldn’t be underestimated!
